I came across Deputy Sheriff Fulford while researching my Flowers family of Beaufort, NC. His Mother Lucy V. Flowers Fulford is my 1st cousin 2x removed. That makes Roger my 2nd cousin 1x removed.

Through newspaper archives I have saved the articles pertaining to his service. I pass them along to relatives, who in time will do the same.
So you see, after 47 years, in unexpected ways, Roger is still w/ family.
We thank you for your service, Sir.
