 Query #066 – Charlotte Hull–Jonathan W. Myers–Mahoning/ Trumbull Co., OH–Wood Co., OH: I want to know about the family of my 3rd gt. grandmother, Charlotte (Hull) Myers. She was b. 05 Feb 1812, probably in Mahoning/ Trumbull Co., Ohio; d. 19 Sep 19, 1849, Wood Co., Ohio; married Jonathan W. Myers, probably in Mahoning/Trumbull Co., Ohio, and migrated to Wood Co., Ohio (near Bloomdale) with her husband in the fall of 1844. Charlotte’s spouse was Jonathan (Wolfcale?) Myers, son of John Myres and Rachel Wolfcale. The Wolfcales resided near Austintown in Mahoning Co., Ohio and are buried in the Cornersburg Cemetery in that area.

  • 03 Jan 2008 Reply from Dana Thompson, HFA Member #1546: Yes, that’s the right family. Jonathan and Charlotte (Hull) Myers had four children:
    • Henry Benton (1835–1898) m. Martha Curtis
    • Mary Ann (Anna) (1836–1931) m. George M. Barnd
    • Caroline (1838–1911) m. J. Benson Clayton
    • John Alfred (1847-1916) m. R. Matilda Hollingshead
    Jonathan also had three children by a second marriage to Elmira Robbins. Where I’m stuck is figuring out who Charlotte’s parents were. I found some interesting leads on the Hull and Osborn forums on genforum.genealogy.com. It appears that one of Jonathan’s 2nd or 3rd cousins on the Osborn side married a Phebe Hull, and another Osborn cousin married Annie Babbitt. In one of your postings—I can’t find it now, but Nos. 1537 and 1542 pertain—I learned that Phebe’s parents were Jacob Hull and Tryphenia Babbitt. Those names intermarried with Jonathan’s cousins make me think I’m on the right track. Years ago when I scanned the 1830 and 1840 censuses I saw several Hulls of the right age to be Charlotte’s father in the Boardman area in Trumbull County. One I think was named Henry. Since Charlotte named her firstborn son Henry, that’s the Hull I would have investigated if I’d had any more data. Tonight, I looked more closely at No. 262 posted by Linda Bitner—it shows George Hull had sons Jacob who m. Typhena [sic] Babbit and Henry who m. Mary Logan (and other sons). NJ and NH are the only states mentioned. Also tonight I noted that one of Jonathan’s Osborn cousins in Boardman had a mother-in-law with maiden name of Logan. Thus the pieces appear to be falling in place. Do you have any family group sheets for this George, or Jacob, or Henry Hull?
       Also, there’s an odd fact I learned about Charlotte’s daughter Anna. She and her husband George Barnd had an adopted son with birth name John S. Trout (b. 1874). John m. Ida V. Kratz (b. 28 Feb. 1872, in Monroe, Mich.). Ida was the daughter of Peter Kratz and Amanda Hull. According to a county or family history (I didn’t record the source), Amanda was a descendant of Gen. William Hull, “who marched his army through this county in the war of 1812.” I understand from the Weygant history and your postings that Gen William’s only son died without issue, hence any claim to be a Hull descended from him is bogus, but it’s an interesting coincidence nonetheless. Do you know anything about Amanda (Hull) Kratz?
  • 03 Jan 2008 Reply from the HFA Genealogist: Yes, I do have these family group sheets and will send them to you privately. George Hull Sr., the father of this family, also had a son George, if you would like to have his family group sheet. George Sr. also had sons Solomon and Daniel. I can send all of these family group sheets to you if you would like to see them. These Hulls were all previously in Morris Co., NJ.
       I agree with you that Henry Hull is a likely candidate to be your Charlotte’s father. I see one drawback to this, though. Henry Hull left a will and apparently no Charlotte was named in the will. I think I either have a copy of this will or an abstract, which I will look into as soon as I have the time. I am listing only three children for this Henry Hull, which would be a very small family for those days. Sometimes fathers provide for children before they die and that may have happened in this case. Usually, though, they mention this in their will, even though they do not name the “other” children whom they have provided for, which is always a disappointment to genealogists.
       Yes, you are right. Amanda Hull could not be a descendant of Gen. William Hull. But it’s not too unusual for people to claim him for an ancestor even though there is not a whit of truth in this.
       I do not have Amanda Hull Kratz in my database. Can you give me some dates for her, please? I do have an Amanda Hull, b. ca. 1835, MI in my database, but I have no husband for her. I have 110 Amanda Hulls in my database. If I knew your source, that would help to pin this down.

 Query #063 – Rev. Joseph Hull–Immigrant of 1635 to New England: My questions about the Rev. Joseph Hull:

  • Did Hull resign from Northleigh Parish, Devon, England in 1632 or did the Bishop remove him from his living?
  • He is listed as Rector of Northleigh, Devonshire, 1621–32 [Foster 2:765] and as curate of Broadway, Somersetshire, 1633–34 [TAG 68:149]. 
  • One account says that he was removed from his living and that resulted in his eventual removal to MA Bay. If he was removed from his living at Northleigh by the Bishop of Devon in 1632 and then took up a living in Somersetshire at Broadway in 1633 it does not seem likely that his dismissal by the Bishop of Devon played any part in his eventual removal to Weymouth. His appointment by the Bishop of Somersetshire to Broadway indicates that Church upper management had no problem with him serving as a Rector.
  • Or was he also removed from Northleigh by the Bishop of Somerset?
  • In another account he was said to have resigned from his (presumably in this account) Devon Rectorship because of differences with the Church of England. Any idea what the differences were?
  • My impression is that Joseph was welcomed by the Management of the MA Bay Colony because he was ordained Clergy. In this period the Colonies had plenty of un-ordained clergy. I know little of MA Bay history but do know that in Plymouth they were having serious problems performing baptisms because of a lack of ordained Clergy. In this period Governor Bradford of Plymouth Colony seriously considered going to the Bishop of the VA Colony to request nearby VA Colony clergy to perform baptisms at Plymouth. (The northernmost Diocese of the VA Colony bordered Plymouth Colony on the south.) They never made the request—but they did consider it. 
  • An article by a Sam Behling said that Joseph and his family moved in 1639 to Plymouth Colony and there founded the present town of Barnstable, at a place called by the Indians, Mattakeese. Is this correct?
  • Upon returning to England was Joseph actually a curate at St. Buryan, Cornwall or did he simply reside there? He is said to have remained there for ten years and then was ejected from the parish. Any idea why he was ejected?

 Query #058 – Hull–Holl–Lingenfelter–Rockbridge Co., VA: Does anyone have detailed information and documentation on the children of Philip Hull/Holl and his wife, Elizabeth Barbara Lingenfelter. I believe that Philip died in Rockbridge Co., VA between 1820 and 1830. The last census where he is found is the 1820 census of Rockbridge. Elizabeth Barbara died in Rockbridge Co. on 14 Feb 1842. I have not done research of the will books or probate records of Rockbridge on these two individuals. Philip and Elizabeth are my 5th gt. grandparents.

I have a great amount of information on the ancestors of Benjamin Reid who married their daughter Elizabeth “Betsy” Hull on 27 Dec 1813 in Rockbridge Co. I also have photographs of the tombstone of Elizabeth “Betsy.” Happy to share all information I have.

  • 10 Sep 2007 Reply from the HFA Genealogist: You have asked the $64,000 question! At the present time, we do not know who the parents of Samuel Hull are. His line was given wrong in The Hull Family in America, pub. 1913. However, DNA tests have been done which indicate that he comes from either the Rev. Joseph Hull line or from the brother’s George Hull line. It is more likely to be the Rev. Joseph Hull line because of this family’s location in NJ. This year you will receive two HFA Journals with articles in which I discuss the possible lineage of Samuel Hull. Please read these to find out these possibilities.

 Query #053 – Hull–Civil War–Michigan–Muscatine Co., IA: Am seeking info on Charles Hull, age 23 at enlistment; residence: Muscatine Co., IA; nativity: MI. Enlisted 10 Feb 1864. Mustered 10 Feb 1864. Mustered 20 Feb 1864. Wounded severely in right arm 14 Jul 1864, Tupelo, Lee Co., MS, Co. A, Residuary Battalion 14th Infantry. Mustered out 8 Aug 1865, Davenport, Scott Co., IA.

Charles Hull originally enlisted from Muscatine, IA into the 14th Iowa Infantry, Co. G. At the end of 1864 most of the regiment’s 3-year enlistment was over. Charles and other recruits, who joined in 1864 along with a few 3-year men who signed on for extra time, were then formed into the Residuary Battalion, Co. A of the 14th IA.

As the War wound down in 1865, Charles and the 14th IA Residuary Battalion were stationed in Camp Butler, Springfield, Sangamon Co., IL in April and May of 1865. When the stunning news came that President Lincoln was assassinated, the men of the 14th Iowa were in the right position to serve as escorts for Lincoln’s burial in Springfield and also to serve as guards at the cemetery following Lincoln’s entombment.

I am not a Hull family member but am a volunteer for a small local IA historical society that is attempting to follow the members of this Company. Our purpose is to try to locate, then document the gravesites of all these men of the company to make sure their graves are all still properly marked and the men remembered. After the long passage of time many of the men’s markers have become worn, broken, or unreadable. If family is no longer in the area some men’s graves have been neglected. We hope to prevent that if we can.

If you have any information or leads on this person that could help us pinpoint his family or lead us to his burial place, we’d surely be appreciative. Can you help? Does anyone have any info that might match this individual?

Stevens family who the census indicates is not a direct relative. We think the parents may have died sometime between 1875 and 1880.

George Edgar Hull m. 23 May 1899, Caddo Parish, Mary Elizabeth Barr, b. 13 Oct. 1877, LA. We have not been able to get past Charles F. Hull. Charles appears out of nowhere on the 1850 census by himself, age 11, with no other Hulls. This census indicates he is from Minden, Claiborne Parish, LA. I am a granddaughter of George Edgar Hull, Jr. Thank you for your time.

I’ll be happy to send to you my family group sheets on John Justus Hull and also on his parents. We have this line traced back four more generations. It is a German line. We need the birth date or approximate birth year of your John Hull. That might help to extend his line. We especially need to know where he was in the 1850 census. Can you supply that info for us?

  • From the HFA Genealogist: HFA Member #1518 Robert Keith Hull has kindly informed us that the 1817 census for Manchester, Sydney County, Nova Scotia, is online here. This census shows Samuel Hull with nine in his household, two of whom are of American origin and seven of whom are of Acadian origin.
       We are working now to try to determine where in America these Hulls or their ancestors previously lived. They have been given two different locations in Connecticut, but neither is documented as yet. These Hulls also resided in Guysborough, Nova Scotia, Canada.

I was given the name of Audrey and it is still on my birth certificate. I was adopted only days after I was born. My name now is Mary Lee Fallon (Falzone). My adoptive father legally changed his name long ago to Fallon. I have no idea if I am part of any of your Hull families’ history, but I would like to know more if possible. I don’t know the first names of my birth parents, although I was told that there were several, possibly 7, children born to them but all of the girls were adopted out; only the boys retained the Hull surname.

Please help if you can. I have never searched for my birth parents because my adoptive parents, I have always felt, were the ones who raised me. Still it would be nice to know if there are more family members out there since I have always been the only child. Please contact me if you think it’s possible that somehow we are related. Thanks in advance for your help and I hope I can help more in the future. I’ll hope to hear from you.

 Query #040 – William Russell Hull–John Edgar Hull–William Rush Hull–Lohnes–Sheppard–Peoria & Tazewell Cos., IL–PA: My immediate known heritage: b. [private], Peoria, Peoria Co., IL; raised in nearby Morton, Tazewell, IL. Son of William Russell and Nancy Ann (Sheppard) Hull; grandson of John Edgar and Mary Ann (Lohnes) Hull, gt.-grandson of William Rush and [__?__] Hull. My gt.-grandfather was born in PA, and that heritage plus his middle name leads us to believe that, circa 1830s or 1840s, his father married a lady of “Rush” heritage. Accordingly, the speculation is this links us to Benjamin Rush of PA, signer of the Declaration of Independence, and his grandson, Richard Rush who served as Atty. General under Pres. John Quincy Adams (along with my wife’s ancestor, Henry Clay, who was Adams’s Sec. of State). Is there any way to verify my great grandfather’s, and my family’s connection to the family of Benjamin Rush?

  • 05 Jul 2007 Reply from the HFA Genealogist: A great deal more genealogical work would need to be done on the Rush family, in order to determine this, and, even then, your chances of connecting to this particular Benjamin Rush family would probably be rather slim until you can prove that someone in your Hull lineage had married a Rush. We specialize in the Hull/Hohl/Holl surnames, and do not try to trace other surnames much beyond one or two generations back. Genealogical research is done step-by-step, carefully documenting each generation. Many people try to claim a relationship to famous or well-known people, but usually there is no real basis or proof for this claim. However, we are probably able to help with your Hull lineage, which would be the very first step in tracing back to any possible Rush ancestor. Our records show that William Rush Hull was… [answer to this query is available only to HFA members; become a member here].

  • 05 Jun 2007 Reply from the HFA Genealogist: I’m going to try and explain what I think has happened with your Eleanor and with her supposed father Benjamin. Part of what we do in the HFA is to try to not only extend lineages but we also try to correct them when we see errors. Even though this may be seen as disappointing news, in the long run we are helping people to veer away from incorrect lines, which is a waste of time, energy, and money.
       I knew that the name of Roleson/Rowleson/Rowelson was familiar to me as I’d seen it in NJ. Yet I thought it was strange that I did not have your Eleanor in my database. The reason is that, even though Eleanor is mentioned in the 1744/45 will of Benjamin Hull, she is not named as his daughter.
       My information states that this Benjamin Hull, of Piscataway, Middlesex Co., NJ, had no children. This is based on his will in which he names his wife Elizabeth (Slater), and gives the remainder of his estate to his brother Hopewell Hull; his nephew John Hull, the oldest son of Hopewell; his cousin Thomas Davis; his cousin Benjamin Doty; his cousin Mary Davis; John King (who formerly lived with him); Elenor, wife of Charles Rowleson of Perth Amboy; his cousin Samuel Davis; and Daniel Blackford Jr. of New Milford, Somerset Co. Benjamin states all of these relationships in his will, but he states no relationship at all to Eleanor, nor John King nor Daniel Blackford Jr.
       Surely if Eleanor had been his daughter, he would say this in his will, as he gives other relationships there. My copy of The Hull Family in America, published 1913, gives an account of Benjamin Hull, stating that he had no children.
       So it’s the conclusion of our Genealogy Committee that Eleanor Rowleson was not the daughter of Benjamin Hull. Why he left her a legacy of 15 pounds is not known, but this will give you something to pursue. She may have formerly been a servant in his household, but we have not yet determined that.

 Query #035 – Hulls Buried in Fox Cemetery, Valley Twp., Stark Co., IL: I am in the process of cleaning up an old abandoned cemetery in Valley Township, Stark Co., Illinois. There are only 5 headstones left in this cemetery, so I have done research on those that were buried there. I came across a Hull family. The names are Harry Hull, died 1878; Sally Hull, died 1862, aged 56 years; and Charles N. Hull, died 22 Dec 1896, 56 years. There has been controversy on who is still buried in the cemetery. Some say that several bodies were removed to another cemetery and others thought that there weren’t any bodies left there. I personally believe that there are still bodies in the cemetery. So I’ve decided to try to do some genealogy on the families that I believe are still there. That is what leads me to your website.

I am in hopes that a member may have some information. I am not directly related to the Hulls—only by marriage. That is how I found the cemetery. Otherwise I would have never known it existed. My 3rd great uncle, Burr Bouton, married Sarah Emeline Hull, the daughter of Harry and Sally Hull.

I should mention that the cemetery I am working on is called the Fox Cemetery. Is any member related to Harry and Sally Hull? And does anyone know if their bodies were dug up and moved to another cemetery? I believe that I have found that Harry Hull fought in the War of 1812. And Charles N. Hull (and his brothers) fought in the Civil War. My mission is to have these men (and the others) recognized for their service. The Fox Cemetery has been forgotten since the early 1900s.

  • 18 May 2007 Reply from the HFA Genealogist: You have presented a special problem lineage to us. Even though many believe that the Moses Hull in Guysborough, Nova Scotia, Canada was identical to the Moses Hull, who m. Mary Ives in 1756 in Wallingford, New Haven Co., CT, there are other references which contradict this. And it is our opinion that there is no firm documented proof that these two men are the same men. We do know that the ch. of the Moses Hull in Canada were: Samuel, who m. Sarah Ingram/Ingraham, Elizabeth, who m. Stephen Pyle, and Philomela, who m. Benjamin Cook. The Moses in CT had these ch.: John, Sarah, David, Samuel, Zephaniah (m. Rachel Gilbert), Nathaniel, Mary, Moses, and Betsey. This CT Moses Hull was of the Richard Hull, immigrant, line and his parents were Dr. John Hull and Mary Andrews (HFAm #98-R).

 Query #020 – Benjamin Hull–Trustram Hull: Phyllis, I have read your posts on Rootsweb and noticed your commentary on the line from which I descend (the Benjamin Hull–Trustram Hull line). Based upon messages on Rootsweb, it appears we may have followed an incorrect path. I have wills, death certificates, and biographies for many of my Illinois clan. Can you assist me in the right direction? Trustram Hull and Sara Hultz/Hulse (wrong, I guess)—he is the son of Trustram Hull and Elizabeth Bescherrer. Any assistance is so appreciated.

 Query #017 – Hull–McQuellan–Green–Blatz–Bartz:
Note: Verified facts about Frank Elmer Hansen appear in boldface.

I am seeking info on my grandfather, known to me as Frank Elmer Hansen, whom I suspect was really Fern Elmer Hull, a man with two wives (a wife and ex-wife) and different families with each. Frank E. Hansen was an only child and a fireman on the Chicago & Northwestern RR.

Fern Elmer Hull was born 21 Jun 1897, in Lima, Rock Co., WI, to parents Charles E. Hull (of English descent) and Sarah McQuellan (of Irish descent); he also was an only child. Fern Elmer Hull registered for the draft in World War I in Fond du Lac Co., WI, where my grandmother, Evelyn Mary Blatz, was born and raised. On his registration, Fern E. Hull listed as his next of kin his wife Ruth.

Frank Elmer Hansen (1897–1955)
Was he also known as Fern Elmer Hull?

The Hulls in this lineage belonged to the 7th Day Baptist Church. Charles E. Hull was the son of Charles Hull Sr., of Rensselaer Co., NY, and Mary Green, of Fulton, Rock Co., WI. This line has been traced back to the Rev. Joseph Hull, immigrant of 1635, from Crewkerne, co. Somerset, England.

Fern Elmer Hull probably married Ruth C. Bartz, b. ca. 1899, prior to Aug 1918, but no marriage record has been found. Their Hull children were: Virginia, age 3 ½ yrs., Margaret, 2 yrs., and Mary, 3 mos., as found on the 1920 Rock Co., WI census living with Ruth (Bartz) Hull and her parents, Charles F. and Augusta H. Bartz.

Fern E. Hull, listed as married, was found in the 1920 census living as a lodger in Chicago, Cook Co., IL. Living at the same residence was Evelyn Mary Blatz, single, b. 1896, who was my grandmother. No marriage record has been found for either Fern E. Hull or Frank E. Hansen and Evelyn Mary Blatz. Evelyn Mary Blatz Hansen’s first child, Janice Marjorie Hansen, was born April 9, 1920; she was my aunt and there were ten children in this family, including my mother.

Fern E. Hull is also found on the 1900 census in Lima and the 1910 census in Milton, both in Rock Co., WI, near Janesville, in his parents’ household. I can find nothing about Fern E. Hull after the 1920 census and I can find nothing about Frank E. Hansen prior to 1920. Any information, photos, or other documents about Fern E. Hull, which might verify that he was, in fact, my grandfather, Frank E. Hansen, would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

         John Fee was a founder of Berea College in KY so there may be more information on him and his family which I haven’t looked into yet. On my line of Hulls, the Hanson, Gregg, and Fee names come up often.
