Biography

David Jr, was the twin brother of Rhoda Ann Fullmer (1847-1917), born while living in a Mormon Refugee camp of Garden Grove, Iowa.

While at Garden Grove, Rhoda gave birth to twins that were named for the parents, Rhoda and David, born on March 15 & 16th respectively. This was a very exhausting challenge for the mother - bearing twins in a refugee camp in late winter far from modern comforts and medicine - at a time when many hundreds of fellow saints experienced death and loss. She was extremely grateful to her priesthood blessings to help her during this difficult event.

We traveled on until we came to Garden Grove in the state of Iowa, where we halted for a season and at this place I gave birth to twins. On March 15, 1847 at a little before three in the afternoon my seventh child, Rhoda Ann was born, and at about two o'clock in the morning of the 16th my eighth child, David was born. I was extremely ill on this occasion and could not have survived had it not been for the faith and power of the priesthood, that were exercised in my behalf.
