Although suffering from a pulmonary infection, he performed a great deal of professional labor, and won an enviable reputation as a member of the Chicago Bar. He died at the age of fifty, honored and mourned by all who knew him. We copy a few lines from the resolutions passed by the members of the bar of Cook Co., Ill.
"Mr. Fuller was endowed by nature with remarkable powers. He possessed a clear, capacious and investigating intellect, which, by habits of intense application, had become thoroughly stored with the principles of judicial science... united with great talents and great acquirements, he brought to the practice of the law, unsullied purity of life and a high sense of professional honor."

SAMUEL WORCESTER (Noah5, Francis4, Francis3, Samuel2, William1) b Hollis, Nov. 01, 1770, d Brainard, Tenn., June 7, 1821, m Oct. 20, 1797, Zervia dau Dr. Jonathan Fox of Dracut, Mass., and Hollis, b Feb. 16, 1779.
He labored on the farm of his father until 1791, then pursued studies preparatory to college at Ipswich Academy, and with Dr. Wood of Boscawen, N.H., entered Dartmouth College in the summer of 1792, graduated in 1795, studied theology with Dr. Austin of Worcester four months, taught school in Hollis in the winter of 1795-6, in the spring following became preceptor of New Ipswich Academy, and shortly afterwards was licensed to preach. He was ordained pastor of the Congregational Church, Fitchburg, Mass., Sept. 27, 1797, dismissed Sept. 8, 1802, and installed pastor of the Tabernacle Church in Salem, Mass., Apr. 20, 1803. His ministry covered a period of great religious activity, an and out of the church, in which he bore a conspicuous part. The Unitarian controversy which divided many of the principal Congregational churches of Eastern Mass., was at its height. Dr. Worcester was a prominent champion of the orthodox side. He received the honary degree of D.D. from Princeton College in 1811. At the first meeting of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions he was chosen Corresponding Secretary, and performed the duties of this office in connection with those of the sole pastorship of the Tabernacle until July, 1819, when he was relieved of a portion of his responsibility as pastor by the settlement of Rev. Elias Cornelius as his associate. He continued these relations with the Tabernacle and the American Board until his decease. (The American Board was founded in 1810 to undertake overseas missions in the Far East, but after the War of 1812 many churchgoers wanted to help the Indians to become good Christian citizens and to share the nation's manifest destiny.) Dr. Worcester was deeply involved in the efforts to acculturate, civilize and Christianize many of the Indian tribes of the southeast, particularly the Cherokees. For several years before his death he worked diligently to assist the Cherokees to prevent their forceful removal to the West. It was on one of his many trips among the Cherokee Nation that he died. He was buried at Brainerd, E. Tenn., a mission station in the Cherokee Nation. A monument erected by the Board bears the following tribute from the pen of Jeremiah Evarts, Esq., who succeeded to the Office of Corresponding Secretary:
Secretaries of the American Board of Foreign Missions - Samuel is in center
"As minister of the gospel Dr. Worcester labored for more than twenty years, with zeal, fidelity and success. As a distinguished agent in exciting and directing the missionary enterprise of the American churches he displayed eminent talents and impelled an ardent desire for the salvation of the heathen. To To the promotion of this divine work he applied all his faculties, till, exhausted by arduous labors he fell asleep in Jesus, while on a visit of kindness to the Cherokee people."
His remains were removed to Salem, Mass., in the autumn of 1844, and deposited in Harmony Grove Cemetery May 5, 1845.
He received the degree from Princeton College in 1811. Besides numerous occasional discourses he published "Sermons on Universalism," "Two Discourses on the Abrahamis Covenant," three "Letters to Dr. Channing," ten "Reports of the A.B.C.F.M.," "Christian Psalmody" and "Watts Entire and select Hymns."

Mary Polly was one of ten children. Her father served in the Revolution. Through her mother's family, she was descended from several of the Mayflower Pilgrims. Residence in Weathersfiled, Vt. (about 1811-14); then Sudbury, Vt., until winter of 1825-26, when upon hearing about Ohio's farm lands, they set out for Lorain Co. While attempting to cross the ice of Lake Champlain, however, their bobsled and horses suddenly fell through losing all their belongings. They were rescued by soldiers from nearby Ft. Ticonderoga, N.Y. In about 1832, the family left Ticonderoga to relocate in Hollis, N.H.; and about 1835, returned to Sudbury, Vt. It wasn't until June, 1845 that Polly's family joined her and Samuel in the long awaited move to Ohio. A son, Benjamin, preceded his parents to Lorain county, settling in Oberlin. They had 14 children, at least 80 grandchildren, and about 150-160 great-grandchildren. Their descendants annually gather in Pittsfield Twp. for a family reunion. They and many of their descendants are buried in the old Pittsfield cemetery.
