 Query #417 – Rachel Hull married John Dennis, resided Middlesex Co., NJ; want to determine her parents: I have ancestors that follow from a line of original Quaker settlers of the Penn Colony of Philadelphia area. My 6th great grandfather is a Joseph Dennis who appears to come from the Middlesex, NJ area before moving to the Philadelphia area. A book of Quaker ancestry connects this Joseph Dennis with the Hull family, stating that Rachel Hull, who married a John Dennis, as Joseph’s mother. If this is correct, Rachel’s father was Benjamin Hull, son of Hopewell Hull, son of Rev. Joseph Hull, who organized the immigration of the Hull Colony to the Massachusetts Bay Colony, as I read the source. The source did indicate that there were a number of Dennises in the Middlesex, NJ area and that while evidence was most positive about this Joseph Dennis connection, it might be in error. Any confirmation or correction is appreciated. If there is no connection, I am not a Hull! If so, count me in!

Studying these Stephen Hulls may help you to decide if they are relatives of yours.

If you will order my family group sheets for both Samuel Hull and his son, Chester Hull, this will give you the references that we have on these people. We can send these family group sheets by e-mail and there is no extra charge for these. Our references may not be positive proof that Samuel Hull is the father of Chester, but they will give you clues to follow up on. We are sorry that we have no earlier info on these Hulls, so we do not know from which line they descend.

 Query #405 – 3rd Gt Grandparent John Hull; m. Hannah Hermance: John Hull is my brick wall. A biography of his grandson says that John Hull was a “New Englander” (CT?). He married Hannah Hermance from Dutchess Co., NY. A family story says that he died before his son Samuel Hull was born (1799). According to information on NY State census, son Samuel was born in Albany Co., NY, although he was baptized at age 13 in Dutchess Co., NY. There are so many John Hulls born in New England. If I could find a marriage record in Dutchess Co., NY, it would be a start.

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.
