Daniel Fuller was a Republican in politics, and he and his wife were members of the Baptist church. He died on his farm at the age of seventy-eight, and she at the age of seventy-one. Daniel Hatch, the father of Mrs. Lovisa Fuller, was also one of the early settlers of the town of Eaton.
   Daniel H. Fuller was educated at the district schools, and also at the High School at Eaton. He was brought up on the farm, remained with his parents until their death, and now owns the old homestead, upon which he has lived since he was eight years old.

Mr. Fuller was married, in Galesburg, Ill., to Emily Watkins, who was born in the State of New York, and who died January 28, 1888, leaving two sons,--Daniel W., born in 1877; and Albert G., in 1883.

He has always been in favor of all enterprises and movements calculated to promote the progress of mankind, especially their intellectual and moral progress, knowing well that in this country the perpetuity of the republic depends upon the character and education of the people. In the more intimate relations of private life he is kind-hearted and benevolent, charitable and patient with the erring, always hoping for and expecting better things. Mr. Fuller is an honorable and upright member of the community, and is widely and favorably known.
