  • 18 Sep 2010 Reply from the HFA Genealogist: I can assure you that the Joseph Hull who m. Susan Bartine is not the father of your Elijah C. Hull. Your Hull family has its roots in RI, even though they were in NY briefly when Elijah C. Hull was born, according to census records. We have the possible parents of Elijah C. Hull, but this still will require more work to prove. We have quite a few census records for Elijah C. Hull, as well as a family group sheet for him and his ten children. We also have family group sheets on three of Elijah’s probable brothers. We can send out family group sheets three at a time, by e-mail, to our HFA members.

 Query #215 – Seeking info on murder of James H. Hull who m. Amanda Alice Spruce; Res.: Cedar Grove & East Bank, Kanawha Co., WV: I would like to find out if anyone knows the details of the murder of my GGF James H. Hull who lived in Cedar Grove, WV and East Bank, WV, Kanawha Co. The family story is this. He was at home with his wife, Amanda Alice Spruce Hull, and his daughter, Gladys Irene Hull. It was near the dinner hour when someone came to the home to tell him that a cow had been stolen and he set out to find out what the disturbance was and to retrieve the cow. He never returned home. He was found on the railroad tracks the next day.

On the 1905 Upper District Death Records, M. A. Morris Assessor, there is a James H. Hull and James Hull listed.

Name in Full Race Sex DOD POD Cause Age OCC Source
James H. Hull White Male 15 Sep 05 Marmet He was killed by Parties 46 Constable F. or T. Beardsley, Coroner
James Hull White Male 15 Sep 05 Marmet C & O Train 42 Laborer M. P. Malcolm, MD

From our records, his birth date of 1866 would actually have made him closer to 40. Is this the same person who was examined by a MD and the coroner? Or, are these two different people with a strange coincidence?

Does anyone have any knowledge of this story and who the “parties” might have been?

  • 18 Sep 2010 Reply from the HFA Genealogist: You were smart to get the death records. I cannot help but think that these death records are for the same person, regardless of the ages. It appears, if this man were really murdered, that the murderer might have placed the body on the railroad track to make it look as if this was a train accident.
       But to further verify this, I’d search for newspaper items close to that date of death for James H. Hull. These West Virginia towns are small towns which might have a weekly newspaper. If they do not, then I’d try Charleston newspapers. I would think that something of this sort would make the newspapers. Have you ever tried, too, to get an obituary for James H. Hull?

 Query #214 – Pelick Hull, b. 1771–1780, PA, and wife Mary Groh/Crow/Gray. Lived Butler Co. & perhaps Miami Co., OH in 1820s. Also res.: Schuyler Co. & Jo Daviess Co., IL; Grant Co., WI: They appear in the 1830 Schuyler Co., IL census in Rushville with Mary’s brother, Samuel Gray. Pelick age 50–59 with 6 male children. Mary listed age 50–59 and 1 female child. Pelick and Mary petition her father’s estate in Greene Co., OH on 16 May 1835 asking for her share. Petition is filed in Jo Daviess Co., IL by power of attorney Philip Hull. Pelick Hull is a land-owner in Potosi Twp. of Grant Co., WI in May, 1836, according to records of the Mineral Point land office. Seeking any info on this family or children.
   Pelick Hull may have been the Philip Hull naturalized in Miami Co., OH,10 Jan, 1814. Spouse’s father, Mathis Crow/Gray, owned land next to a Philip Hull in Miami Co., OH.
   Pelick Hull could be from MD as well, because family farm bordered both states.

 Query #208 – Sussex Co., NJ Hulls: Judge Joseph Hull & his Son Sheriff Isaac Hull; Need Documentation: We are in the process of preparing an article to be published in a future HFA Journal discussing the generations of HFAm #186, Judge Joseph Hull who m. #1 Susanna Stelle, and #2 Phebe (?Hunt). We will be discussing the documentation for the children given by Orra Eugene Monnette, and published in The “Old Northwest” Genealogical Quarterly, Vol. 13, Oct 1910, pp. 139–175. Monnette then contributed his research to The Hull Family in America (HFAm), where much of this information was published in 1913.

Included in this article will also be a discussion of the children of HFAm #440 Sheriff Isaac Hull, who married Ann Dunham. Documentation for the children of both Judge Joseph Hull and Sheriff Isaac Hull, by Monnette and HFAm, seems to be lacking in several instances, which will be pointed out in the article.

If you have original records in Sussex Co., NJ, or any other area of NJ, to add to this article, please contact me. I’m especially interested in land, court, and probate records which will help to confirm many of these children. Some children are confirmed, but not all.

This is the Rev. Joseph Hull, immigrant, line.

Should you be interested, please advise. My great grandmother was Virginia Hull (18 Oct 1841–12 Mar 1922) who married 09 Sep 1873 Wm. C. Nichols (25 Jul 1836–19 Dec 1918). As I was trying to get more data on her (there was a note that her father was J.O. Hull), I found quite a few Hulls that were on a page of one of the family Bibles.

 Query #191 – Guy P. Hull: Name on 1890s Rifle: I am researching Guy P. Hull. My grandfather gave me a 1890s rifle and it has the name Guy P. Hull engraved on it. My grandfather died quite a while ago so I can’t be sure about where and when he might have acquired the rifle. He was born in Berthoud, CO; lived in Redwood City, San Mateo Co., CA; taught at Stanford; and raised a family in Pocatello, ID. I would imagine the Guy P. Hull I’m looking for was a “gentleman” and an accomplished hunter.

 Query #187 – Alice Merietta Hull, b. 1926, Newton, Rockingham Co., NH; Parents: Joseph Franklin Hull & Sadie Estelle Warner; Grandparents: Joseph Michael Hull and Lizzie Floretta Orne. Irish Line. Also in Essex Co., MA: My grandmother Alice Merietta Hull was born on January 2, 1926 in Newton, Rockingham Co., New Hampshire to Joseph Franklin Hull and Sadie Estelle Warner. My great grandfather, Joseph Franklin Hull, was born on June 1, 1882 in Haverhill, Essex Co., Massachusetts to Joseph Michael Hull and Lizzie Floretta Orne.
   Do you have any trace of them in your records? The only thing I know about my gg grandfather, Joseph Michael Hull, is that he supposedly emigrated to the United States from Ireland via NYC and Ellis Island. The only thing that was passed down through the years was that he didn’t come alone; he had a brother or 2 brothers with him or possibly a brother and a sister.

 Query #185 – Mary Whitaker/Whittaker of Cecil Co., MD; m. Mr. Hull ca. 1785; resided Smith Twp., Washington Co., PA, ca. 1785: My name is Jarrard Whittacre. I am compiling the Descendants of Thomas Whitaker. Thomas was born 29 May 1731 in St. Mary Ann Parrish, Cecil Co., MD. He married Elizabeth Rogers, b. ca. 1740 in Cecil, Maryland.

One of their 11 children was Mary Whitaker (Whittaker). Mary married a Hull abt 1785. At that time they were living in Smith Twp, Washington, PA. I know that they later moved to Ohio in abt 1805. There isn’t any record that I can find of his Mr. Hull given name, or his and Mary Whitaker’s children, or where they lived after 1805.

The 1800 census has 3 possibilities (1) The best is Gresham Hull living in Smith Twp., Washington Co., PA with wife and children; (2) George Hull; and (3) Henry Hull both living in Fallowfield Twp., Washington Co., PA with wife and children. Would you have any information on Mr. Hull and Mary Whitaker? Thanks.

  • 03 Mar 2010 Reply from Jarrard Whittacre: It could be George Hull, but Mary was living in Burgettstown, Smith Twp, Washington Co., PA; that is my reasoning that it was Gresham Hull. He was also living in Smith Twp, Washington Co., PA in the 1800 census. In the year of 1802 James Holmes and Nancy Anne Whitaker, Eli Whitaker and Mary Cherry, William Murray and Esther Whitaker, Solomon Perrin and Rachel Whitaker Freegrift Chamberlain and Elizabeth Whitaker, and Mr Hull and Mary Whitaker moved from Smith Twp, Washington Co., PA to or near Millersport, Ohio. Later Mr. Hull and Mary Whitaker, Freegrift Chamberlain and Elizabeth Whitaker, and Solomon Perrin and Rachel Whitaker moved further west, place not known. All of the Whitakers were children of Thomas Whitaker and Elizabeth Rogers. Several of Elizabeth Rogers relatives moved to Licking Co. OH. Some family members have Mary (Whitaker) Hull remarried to a Mr. Chamberlan. With this additional information, what do you think?
  • 03 Mar 2010 Reply from the HFA Genealogist: I have several Gersham/Gershom Hulls in Washington Co., PA, but none of them married a Mary. My own Hulls lived in Licking Co., OH and I have volumes on them. Please give counties whenever possible. All of my records are arranged by counties. I have Millersport in Fairfield Co., OH. Is that correct?

  • 04 Mar 2010 Reply from Linda Lewis Brauer, HFA Member #1650; g-g-granddaughter of Mary Jane Hull Brown: When my brother sent this information he was not aware of all the info we actually do have from the Bible and how much searching I did in the late 80s. I am trying to join the HFA and get involved again as it is very important to our father, Wm. Dell Lewis (age 84), to know what Hull line his great grandmother, Mary Jane Hull Brown, came from.
       He was always told that Capt. Isaac Hull (Old Ironsides) was his g-g-grandfather, which we know can’t be so. Mary Jane (not Ann) Hull m. William or David Brown ca. late 1840s. (First child born 1849.) Seemed to live in New York City. Six children born between 1849–1860; only 2 lived. These were: George Henry Brown, b. 16 Feb 1860, in NY, NY (my father’s grandfather) and his sister Marietta Justina Brown, b. 31 Jan 1851, NY, NY.
       In 1868 when Marietta Justina Brown married Frederic Egner, Geo. H. Brown was 8 yrs. old and Mary Jane Hull Brown was widowed. They both then lived with the Egners. Address in 1868 and before possibly “48th Street, NY City.” After Nov. 1868 perhaps “College Point, Long Island” with Frederic and Marietta Egner.
       Mary Jane Hull Brown died of T.B in possibly NY, mid to late 1870s, or perhaps in Norfolk, Virginia if late 1870s to earlier 80s. All we know about Mary Jane Hull’s father (the one we’re searching for) is “He was a master ship-builder in the Brooklyn navy yard for 30 years.”
       George Henry Brown moved to Tacoma, Washington so all the Hull relatives from Mary Jane Hull Brown started from Washington State as there were no children from Marietta J. Brown Egner, and Geo. Henry had 4 boys and 1 girl (my grandmother). Only 1 biological child came from the 4 boys. There are no surname Browns alive.
       Do you see why I’m having difficulty filling out the forms to become a member? I have some info that actually says two different things so I’m not sure of some things. Please help me to help you to help me!!! Thanks a lot.

I do know that she married a Brown and that they lived in New York City. If we can determine that this woman is identical to your Mary Jane Hull Brown, then I have this line back seven generations. We do hope that you will join the Hull Family Association, so that we can share this info with you. In filling out the forms, just begin with yourself and list each generation that you have back to and including the Hulls.

 Query #179 – Elijah Hull, b. ca. 1827, Madison Co., OH: This ancestor, Elijah Hull, has proved to be very elusive. He is the son of William Hull and Rachel Markley. In the censuses for 1850 and ’60, he is living in Sommerford, Madison, Ohio. On 22 Dec 1852, he married Elizabeth Maxwell in Clark County, OH. Elijah served in the Civil War in the 40th and 151st OVIs as a Private. On 01 Nov 1869, he received 160 acres in Lancaster, Nebraska per the Scripps Warrant Act of 1855. Two children were born to Elijah and Elizabeth: George V (ca. 1854) and William M. (ca. 1858). Both children were born in Ohio. The 1870 census places Elijah in Lancaster, NE. That’s where the trail ends, except; that he is buried in Walnut Hill Cemetery, Auglaize County, Ohio—I think. There is an Elijah Hull who died, 22 June 1871 and left a widow and six children. This Elijah has to be the son of Daniel Hull (1803–1869) and Mariah Smith, I think. There is another Elijah Hull buried in the same cemetery, but the name is spelled Elizah with a death date of 1877. Elijah’s sons, William M. and George V. must have returned to Ohio with their parents in the 1870s. In the 1880 census George V. is living with his brother, William M., and wife in Madison, Clark Co., Ohio. Later, George V. and wife are in Stokes, Logan Co., Ohio in the 1900 census. Help! Any suggestions or information to clear this up. To muddy the water further, I think that the Civil War marker is on the grave of the wrong person. Hope I’m wrong.
