    John M. Fulkerson. A prosperous and growing commercial enterprise at Troy is found in the up-to-date and well-equipped pharmacy of John M. Fulkerson, who has been proprietor of this business for the past eighteen years. . Mr. Fulkerson is a native of Shelby county, Ohio, born April 3, 1878, a son of George W. and Margaret J. (Mills) Fulkerson, whose children were: John M.; Walter, identified with the steel industry at Canton, Ohio; and William a lieutenant in the United States Navy. The father of Mr. Fulkerson was a physician who practiced for many years in Shelby County and the youth was brought up amid surroundings that naturally inclined him toward his present calling. After attending the local schools, he took up the study of pharmacy at Ohio Northern University, and after his graduation from that institution began to follow the drug business. In 1902 he came to Troy, where he established himself in business, and since that time has built up a large and satisfying patronage among the leading people of this community. He has a well-equipped establishment and carries a full line of drugs, medicines, toilet articles, cigars, candies, etc., and the manner in which he has directed his transactions has given him business standing and public confidence. Mr. Fulkerson is a member of the Masonic fraternity. He has always given his unquestioning support to movements of a worthy civic character, and during the period of the war was prompt in his response to requests for contributions to the various movements promoted for the success of American arms. Mr. Fulkerson married Maude L., daughter of William Killiam, of Piqua, and to this union there have been born two daughters: Margaret, who is her father's able assistant in the drug store; and Florine, born in 1909, who is attending the graded schools of Troy.
