FULLER GENEALOGY

Our FULLER Ancestors

Fuller Farm and Ranch, Carbon, Alberta, Canada

Fuller Farm and Ranch, Carbon, Alberta, Canada

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.

Harvest time on the farm
Harvest time on the farm
After the sheaves of grain were dried in stooks, the sheaves were picked up by loading then into a big wagon. The wagon was then parked beside the threshing machine and a man with a pitch fork then placed each sheave of grain on a conveyer belt which fed the grain into the threshing machine. He had to be careful to feed each sheave head first into the threshing machine.

Ollie is shown here with two of the farm horses used to pull farming equipment of plowing, harrowing and even swathers. During this time in history a farm could not operate without these horses. A good farmer had to be a shrewd horse trader as well.
