Biography of Robert C. Fulton
Member of Ohio General Assembly - House of Representives

ROBERT C. FULTON was born in Loudon county, Virginia, in 1824, came to Ohio in 1842, and located in Champaign county, where he has since resided, with the exception of five years spent in Madison county. He attended school at Ohio Wesleyan University, and graduated in 1850; was admitted into the Cincinnati Conference Methodist Episcopal Church in 1851, and sent to West Jefferson Circuit, remained one year and then sent to London, where he spent one year. In 1856 he returned to Urbana, and commenced reading law with Ichabod Corwin, now a Common Pleas Judge, and in 1858 he was admitted to practice law. He has since then built a remunerative practice, the firm now being Fulton and Tod.

In 1852 he was united in marriage to Mary A. McDonald, of Madison county.

Politically he is a Republican. Mr. Fulton is a man of sound judgment, seldom addressing the House, and then to the point. His sentences are terse and epigramic. He never falters for a phrase; the words flow easily and smoothly from his lips; his gestures are appropriate and graceful, and we consider him one of the most perfect orators in the House. His speeches in favor of the Fifteenth Amendment and the bill authorizing the State Board of Equalization to reduce the valuation of lands in Ohio, were the best delivered during the two sessions.

This is his second term in the House.
