    Fuller, Charles Woodman - Family Medical Book
    The Charles W Fuller family Medical Book or Home Encyclopedia of Health has recently came to light as it was handed down in the family from Grace Dechanet Fuller to her daughter Belle Fuller Vaughan and then down to her daughter Barbara Vaughan and family. It has been well used and is without the front or back covers (and a few pages in the front) and is some 5 inches thick and contains some 1400 pages. The book is in fact 10 books in one and covers all aspects of health and the human body as seen by the author in 1904. It is so complete that it even covers detailed pictures of bone and muscle placement.
    We can imagine our ancestor Grace Dechanet Fuller using this book almost daily with her family of nine children and are thankful that it was handed down in the family.
    The attached file is interactive to a website that has the entire book and that website is secure.

    Fuller Coal Mine, Carbon, Alberta Canada
    Fuller Coal Mine, Carbon, Alberta Canada (18)
    The Fuller family owned and operated the Fuller coal mine for some years about 1920. The mine opened in 1918 and went through several owners before it eventually shut down in 1930. The mine was a big part of the Fuller family life for many years. Charles also built a rooming house for the miners in the area and Grace was the cook and manager during this time it was open.
    Fuller Farm and Ranch, Carbon, Alberta, Canada
    Fuller Farm and Ranch, Carbon, Alberta, Canada (56)
    Babe Fuller said that the boys in the Fuller family were farmers to help on the farm but they were also cowboys and loved activities of being cowboys including bucking broncs and all that goes with that. We know that some of the boys participated in the Calgary Stampede, a big yearly rodeo event.
    Glen signed up for the army in 1916 and listed as "Ranch Cowboy" as his profession or trade and in another questionnaire he listed "Horse Breaker" as his profession. Harry listed "Farmer" on his.

    • on the Ohlhsuen farm, east of Carstairs, Alberta. ||She was born 18 May 1919 in Irvine, Alberta and was working in Carbon for the Oliphant family at the time the two met at a dance in Carbon. Elma said that she could remember the first time she saw Babe at the dance and it was love at first sight. Elma received several cows as a wedding present from her parents and the money received from the sale of each ($45) bought furniture for their new home, a sewing machine and some inventory (candy, cigarettes, etc) for the pool hall. They were both used to hard work and that is what was needed to start from nothing and build a home, a business and a family.
