Death of a Grandson of Thomas Youngs Seymour.

Dr. Stephen Edward Fuller, who died in Brooklyn, N. Y., May 2, was born in East Haddam in 1836. He was a grandson of Thomas Youngs Seymour of Hartford (whose portrait is given in the Hartford county history) Captain Seymour went from Yale College into the Revolutionary army and served through the war. He was detailed to escort the surrendered Burgoyne from Saratoga to Boston. Dr. Fuller was a cousin of Governor "Tom" Seymour. The "New York Tribune" says of Dr. Fuller:

"Dr. Fuller was graduated from the College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York City, in the class of 1858. At the outbreak of the civil war he entered the army as contract surgeon, then assistant surgeon, and in 1863, at the age of twenty-seven, he was appointed surgeon of volunteers by President Lincoln. In October, 1865, he was honorably mustered out with the rank of lieutenant-colonel by brevet by President Johnson."

During the war he had charge of two hospitals in Alexandria, va., and of hospital No. 14 in Nashville, Tenn. Soon after the war the doctor settled in Brooklyn and entered upon the practice of his profession. He was a member of the following organizations: Military Order of the Loyal Legion, New York; Grant Post, G. A. R.; the Sons of the American Revolution; the New York Academy of Medicine, the Kings County Medical Society, the Practitioners Club of Brooklyn and the Masonic Order. While in the army he contracted disabilities from which he never fully recovered, and which finally resulted in his death. In 1872 he married Miss Jeannie Keys of Vermont, who, with four children, is left to mourn his loss. Dr. Fuller took high rank as a physician and surgeon, and was devoted to his profession. He leaves a large circle of warm friends.
