From "History of Crawford County" (http://genealogytrails.com/ind/crawford/history.html)
He was a leading citizen at Alton for many years. He built a mill near his home to which the farmers took their grist. When the citizens divided up township four south, range one east, into school districts about 1837 Henry Fullenwider was elected district trustee for District No. 4. One finds in those days that each man had his private cemetery. So on the hill west of Alton about two miles, "Uncle Henry," as his good neighbors called him, selected the site for the cemetery. The follow-ing article appeared in the Crawford County Democrat a few months ago. "A handsome and appropriate monu-ment, a gift of their five living sons, Doctor Jack Fullen-wider of Mount Vernon, Professor Percy Fullenwider of the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music, John, William and Marshall of Roberta, Kentucky, was erected over Haden Fullenwider's grave, a descendant of Colonel Henry and Delilah, his wife at Fullenwider's cemetery, Tuesday, October 13th. This ceremony recalls the open hospitality of this honored couple for many years of their happy life spent at the old Colonel Henry home which was the social center of the community during the years in which they raised their family of six boys and four girls. The ceme-tery also contains the grave of Jonathan Boone, a nephew of Daniel Boone, who died in 1827. The colonel's part is separated from the rest by a stone wall. His descendants live near Alton to-day, one of whom married Doctor H. H. Deen, who has a large practice at Leavenworth."
Henry married Nancy Ann Rice, daughter of Jacob Rice and Ann, in 1779 in Pennsylvania, USA. (Nancy Ann Rice was born in 1760 and died in 1830 in Shelby County, Kentucky, USA.)
