About the Hull Family Association title image

The Hull Family Association (HFA) is a non-profit association, organized in October 1985 by a small group of Hull* descendants from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, and Colorado to develop, preserve, and exchange information on Hull history and genealogy in the United States.

Note: This website contains no publicly available information. All genealogical data is maintained off-line, and is provided to HFA members only. We regret that, due to constraints of time and effort, we cannot respond to non-member requests for genealogical information. A list of genealogical benefits for members is available here. Non-members are welcome to submit queries using this query form.

Notice to our HFA Members and Prospective Members

The HFA specializes in correcting wrong lineages, found in great numbers out on the Internet, in published and unpublished family histories, and in many other sources. We believe in documenting everything that we can. For our members, upon your request, we can send three family group sheets at a time, complete with our references, by e-mail, plus correcting errors that we spot in our members’ lineages.

Submissions Policy

All submissions to the HFA of any kind
become the joint property of the submitter
and the HFA, with the understanding that the
HFA may, using its own discretion, share this
information with others unless otherwise
requested in writing by the submitter.
The submitter’s expenses cannot
be reimbursed by the HFA.
Questions? E-mail us.

   21 Jan 2016 | Notice to Our HFA Members: From Phyllis J. Hughes, HFA Genealogist and Journal editor – Please let one of your New Year’s Resolutions be that, when you are sending e-mails to our HFA officers—especially to me—that you will:

(1) Always sign your full name. You would be surprised at how many e-mails we get giving only your given name and you would also be surprised at how many of our members have the same given names. It takes up our valuable time to try and decide just who is writing.

(2) Always include your HFA number with your mail. That helps us to locate your lineage more readily and, in turn, helps us to answer your questions.

We regret that we can no longer guarantee that your e-mail will be answered promptly if you neglect to give us your full name and your HFA number.

 Query #402 – Desire info on Meshack Hull and wife Elizabeth (Manning) Dunn of Middlesex and Hunterdon Cos., NJ: I am looking for information regarding HFAm #449, Meshack Hull who married Elizabeth Dunn in 1764. The “Common Errors in the Rev. Joseph Hull Line” document states that Charles Hull, HFAm #1831s, is really the son of Phineas Hull and Mary Wolverton and that Phineas is the son of Meshack Hull and Elizabeth (Manning) Dunn but I am not clear who Meshack’s father is. I think it is Benjamin Hull, b. about 1708, and married to Rhoda Martin but I’m not sure. I don’t find very much information about Meshack.

  • 23 Mar 2016 Reply from the HFA Genealogist: Our records do show that Meshack’s father was Benjamin Hull, b. ca. 1708, who married Rhoda Martin. If you order my family group sheets this may show the details on these families a little better and they will also give my sources. Elizabeth’s maiden name was Manning. She married #1 Phineas Dunn, and #2 Meshack Hull.

 Query #401 – Desire info on Roy Wayne Hull, of Solano Co., CA & Bluford Roland Hull, of Saline Co., IL: Father Roy Wayne Hull, b. 01 Oct 1922, IL; d. 12 May 1987, Solano Co., CA; m. 22 Nov 1941, Verble Mullnax.
