This is most interesting.  I am in the middle of summer vacation and will reply in mid-August.  Thank you for getting in touch. 

Since I originally posted, I have been to North Antrim and visited Ballintoy, including the farm where my ancestors once lived as tenants of the Fullerton family.  Family members still live there and I had a delightful visit with them.  A spectacularly beautiful place!

I have been trying to find Fullerton connections in Belfast as well.  I'm tied to a Dr. George Franklin Fullerton who moved to Texas following the Civil War https://texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metapth354360/m1/287/
His Father James C Fullerton may have been born in Belfast circa 1799 and traveled to South Carolina with his family a John F Fullerton born circa 1755 and mother Sarah Edward.

I've been unable to find any more information if you have ever come across those names in your research it would be much appreciated.
I welcome any Fullerton males to test with familytreedna and join the Fullerton surname project.
