Joyeuse Lennig Fullerton (1866-1962)


Who can tell us more about this young woman who appeared in the 1880 US Census for Wenonah? In that census she was living with her father and grandfather. You can click on the link below to see the Census page. I saw it offered on eBay.

She eventually was the wife of the 23rd governor of Colorado, William Ellery Sweet. Read more about him at the links below.

Details the eBay seller found are quoted below.
