In the 1900 US Federal Census for Township 16, Creek Nation, Indian Territory, 52-year-old Illinois-born farmer Thomas and his 54-year-old Illinois-born wife Mahulda [Drew] Fulton have been married 32-years. Mahulda has borne nine children and all are living. The Illinois-born children who are living with them are 22-year-old farm laborer Walter, 20 year old farm laborer Charlie W, 18-year-old twins, farm laborer Chesley E and Edith, and 15-year-old Jessie. Also in this household are two Missouri-born granddaughters, 12-year-old Pearl M and 8-year-old Addie M, whose last name is recorded as Fulton. This is incorrect as they are the children of Thomas and Mahulda's daughter, Mary Elizabeth Fulton Pittman per note on the census on Ancestry.com by a descendent. Thomas is farming rented land. Everyone can read, write and speak English [sic]. Everyone's parents were born in Illinois.
