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The HFA specializes in correcting wrong lineages, found in great numbers out on the Internet, in published and unpublished family histories, and in many other sources.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.

 Query #431 – Gt grandparents John Frederick Hull and Gertrude Grimsly; Davis Co., IA: There is a family story about my grandfather Pearl T. Hull, b. 06 Oct 1902, Davis Co., IA. He and his brother were sent to live with relatives. At some point, the relatives taking care of my grandfather told him they were going to the store and that they would be back. They never returned; instead abandoning him as a pre-teen. At age 13 he joined the Marines, by lying about his age and went off to WWI. My query is what happened to his parents? They disappeared and we have no date of death or location. Their names are: John Frederick Hull, b. 17 Feb 1877; Davis Co., IA; m. 23 Jul 1898, Gertude (Gertie) Grimsley, Van Buren Co., IA.

 Query #429 – Hulls in Wills in Mercer Co., PA: I have some information that might be of interest. Images of some wills from Mercer Co., PA are now on-line. Those researchers studying Hull, Hoagland, Hulse, Budd, etc. in Mercer County can find many clues in these wills. I was able to learn more about my ancestor Daniel Hull (m. Anna Trine) and can show that some information found in Ancestry family trees is incorrect.
   For those who doubt it, my ancestor, Mary Ann Hoagland, is named as a daughter of John Hoagland and Catherine Hull in John’s will. The names of Daniel Hull’s children who were alive in 1855 are named in his will, including the daughters’ married names.
   I also learned that Daniel Upson Budd’s wife, Lucy Ann Hull, often named as a daughter of Daniel Hull, is from another Hull family. I also have worked out connections that give clues about Daniel Hull’s second wife Lydia. Anyone studying these families may contact me and we can share research. Thanks.

 Query #428 – Seeking the parents of Isaac Hull (1814–1886), of Delaware, Athens, & Meigs Cos., OH: I’m seeking to find the parent(s) of Isaac Hull (1814–1886) born in Delaware County, OH and lived in Troy, Athens Co., as well as Olive, Meigs Co., OH. He was the father of the Rev. Charles E. Hull, who was my great grandfather. I believe Isaac’s father might have been Abraham Hull but I can’t definitively go beyond Isaac or Abraham. Any help would be appreciated.
