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.

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.

  • 03 Feb 2016 Reply from the HFA Genealogist: We have a family group sheet showing our sources and Lucy “Lulu” Hull, as a child in the family of Pinkard Clay Hull, aka Peter Cassius Hull. These sources might give you a clue as to James Hull Patterson. We can send our family group sheets to you by e-mail, three at a time. We can carry this line back four more generations from Pinkard Clay Hull.

  • 03 Feb 2016 Reply from the HFA Genealogist: The best way to receive this info is to request my family group sheets. I can send these three at a time, by e-mail. First, it’s best to request the sheet for Samuel Hull and Martha Glover. Then I would choose the child from whom you descend, who would be William Hull. You can then choose a sibling of William or the child from whom you descend, who would be the William Hull who married Elizabeth Street. You can continue requesting family group sheets at various intervals until you have the ones that you want.

 Query #392 – Wish info on my 12th Gt Grandparent Elijah Hull who m. Mary Melvin: Trying to compile a lineage for my family. I have so far traced back to Elijah Hull, b. 08 May 1826, who married Mary Melvin, born 04 Jul 1832. I believe they lived in Madison Co., OH.
