In your Group Sheet for Ogilvia Avent and Solomon Fuller, you have a daughter Francis Fuller listed. This should be Gilly Fuller who married William Green. It has been circulated around the internet that there was a daughter, Francis, but a few years ago I found A Deed of Gifts of slaves for each of his children, by Solomon Fuller, Randolph, County, NC, August 5, 1794. There is no Francis listed.
