Hello! I just came to learn that the Fuller’s in Huron/Sanilac County are somehow related to my husband’s Fuller family — wondering if anyone involved in the history of the county could tell me the name of the very earliest/first Fuller family(s) to come into that area and estimated date?

Hi Cheryl. So sorry I’m writing this so late. I don’t recall getting a notice that anyone posted here. I do not know anything off the top of my head, and perhaps you’ve gotten some answers by now. But if want, you can ask at our FB group page, https://www.facebook.com/groups/porthuronpreservation/ Thanks, belatedly, for checking our our web page and asking a question!
My Fuller family came to Columbus Township, St. Clair County in 1840 from upstate New York. They later operated businesses in Richmond, Michigan.
Thanks much for commenting with that info! I appreciate it, as I’m sure other readers might too.
I have found inaugural invitations from 1969 to 1971. I was wondering if you were interested in acquiring them? I would send pictures but unfortunately it doesn’t look like you’re site will allow that. So if you would like to talk to me about them, my number is 810-662-6628.
Hi Tina. Which inauguration are you referring to? Otherwise, we are not a museum and do not have a special budget for acquiring things. So far, the board members have donated things, as have some other people, or we borrow items to make digital copies.
I would like to have permission to reproduce the photo of 1317 Seventh Street in a book. Can someone please advise me how to obtain that permission?
Hello Mark, and I’m glad that you found something useful at our site.
I’m writing back from my personal email since that’s where your question got forwarded. I was looking around our pages and wasn’t sure which photo(s) you were referring to. Can you please provide me the url and any other info if necessary (like if there are multiple photos, which one(s) you’re interested in)? If I personally took the photos, I will give permission, as long as they are attributed. I look forward to hearing back from you.

With apologies, I’m sorry I missed this last year and then stopped looking for it until now. I mainly wanted to use the main photo on the site’s home page in a book.
No problem. Seems that the more ways of communication we have, the harder it is to communicate at times.
