Volney S. Fulham was born 16 July 1830, in Ludlow, Vermont, the son of Sewall and Eunice Fulham, both natives of Vermont. By 1850, Volney, age 20 and living with his parents in Ludlow, had already become a lawyer.
He was commissioned Captain, Co. I, 2nd Vermont Infantry on 22 May 1861, and eight months later was commissioned Lieutenant Colonel of the 7th Vermont Infantry, on 4 February 1862, to take effect from 18 January. He resigned his commission on 26 August 1862.
In 1889-1890, he was president of the St. Paul Universalist Church, on West Street, in Rutland. In 1900, he was boarding with Bradbury Bailey, in Rutland, aged 69, a retired lawyer. He applied for a veteran's pension in April 1904. By 1910, he had returned to Ludlow and was boarding with John Hoskins. Both the 1900 and 1910 censuses listed him as single.
Fulham died 12 November 1917 and is buried in Ludlow cemetery.
"The Fulham Genealogy, with Index of Names and Blanks for Records," which he published in 1910, by the Free Press Printing Co., of Burlington, may contain additional biographical information.
