Phineas Fullman, born February 26, 1749, came to Chesterfield, from Westminster, Mass., about 1778. He married twice, first, Lucy Lampson, and second, Mrs. Bathsheba (Britton) Leach. He died August 4, 1823. His children were Paul, Asa, Lucy, Myra, Ellis and Almira. Asa, born February 24, 1780, married Lucena, daughter of Jonathan Farwell, in 1811. From May, 1815 to 1821, he engaged in trade at the Center Village, in partnership with Hon. Levi Jackson, afterwards with Ashbel Wheeler, Sr., and alone. For a number of years he run a freight-boat on the Connecticut, between Chesterfield and Hartford. He also erected a mill on Broad brook, for the manufacture of lumber. He was selectman in 1815. His wife died November 10, 1817, and his death occurred December 14, 1870 (Editor’s Note: Highly unlikely death year as this would have Phineas dying at the ripe old age of 121). George Lampon, one of his three children, was born July 20, 1815, and married Persis S. Davis, of Holden, Mass., a teacher of music, February 20, 1850. He engaged in business with his father, on Broad brook, till their mill was burned, in July, 1853. when he removed to Lowell, Mass., where he remained eight years. He then returned to Chesterfield and rebuilt the mill. He is also a surveyor and musician.
