 Query #112 – Isaac Hull–Lancaster Co., PA & Butler Co., OH–Jacob W. Hull–John Samuel Hull–Bertram Clarence Hull–Ruth Blanch Hull–Locations: VA, IL, KS, NE: I seek information on the Isaac Hull, born 1760, PA, who ended up in Butler Co., OH. His probable son was Jacob W. Hull, b. 06 Sep 1816, VA. I have been told that DNA testing has been done and descendants of Jacob W. Hull don’t match descendants of Isaac Hull from Butler Co., OH.

I don’t believe there is any connection to my Hull line and the brothers that came from England (e.g, Rev. Joseph Hull & George Hull, of Crewkerne, co. Somerset, England).

I have no proof or documentation on Jacob W. and this Isaac Hull line. I need a connection. There has been speculation that the ancestry is German rather than English. I was told in 19th century Virginia that it seems to be common for people with the surname Hull to have had German ancestry with the original spelling Hohl. Help!!

My line is: Ruth Hull, b. 1919, KS; d. 2001, KS; d/o Bertram C. Hull, b. 1879, KS; d. 1932, KS; s/o John Samuel Hull, b. 1854, IL; d. 1885, KS; s/o Jacob W. Hull, b. 1816, VA; d. 1879, NE; thought to be s/o Isaac Hull, b. 1758 or 1760, Lancaster Co., PA; d. 1834, Butler Co., OH.

 Query #111 – Julia Ann Hull m. Jeremiah Kittle Jr.–Delaware Co., NY–Ogle Co., IL: My 3rd great grandfather was Jeremiah Kittle Jr. He was born and died in Delaware Co., NY. He married Julia Ann. The only clue we have as to her maiden name was that given by her oldest daughter in the 1925 IA Census. She said the maiden name was Julia Ann Hull.

We know that they were married sometime prior to the 1850 census for Middletown, Delaware Co., NY, when they are listed with their first child, Mary, born in Aug. 1850. We know that there were several Hull families in Middletown, Delaware Co., New York but have not been able to find information tying Julia Ann to them. Would Julia Ann show up on your records as part of any Hull family in Delaware Co., NY? She was born according to census records about 1820 in NY. She died in Ogle Co., IL, in 1861. Thank you for any help you could provide.

 Query #108 – Hezekiah Hull & Charity Schram–Canada, Arenac Co., MI–James Hull & Jennett Stevens–NJ & Canada: A few years ago, I had traced my Hull line to my 2nd gt. grandfather, Hezekiah Hull, b. ca. 1815, Canada, m. Charity Schram (b. ca. 1824, d/o Jacob & Catherine Schramm).

I now know Hezekiah died in Arenac Co., MI, between May, 1898 and the 1900 census. On his second marriage at age 83 in 1898, Arenac Co., MI, to Elizabeth Birtch, he lists his parents as James Hull and Jennett Stevens. The 1851 Canadian census shows that James Hull was living alone in the Canadian Niagara area, b. ca. 1789, NJ. Does this connect to any family information of the HFA or are there suggestions from members?

 Query #107 – Edward Franklin Hull & Mattie Lou Maddox–Clay Co., AL; Reuben Thornton Hull & Mary Dandridge Reagan or Ragan Hull–Putnam Co., GA: I would like help identifying people in old photos. I am trying to locate descendants of my great aunt, Mattie Lou Maddox, b. 1884, who m. 1918, Edward Franklin Hull, who d. 1943. They were listed in the 1930 Clay Co., AL census, but later Mattie lived in Birmingham, AL, where she was a nurse.

I don’t know the names of Edward Franklin Hull’s parents. They had a daughter, Doris Frances Hull, b. 1919, m. 1937, J. D. Burckhardt, Jr. (possibly Burkhalter), who had two sons, Franklin Dewitt Burckhardt, b. 1938, and Milford Hull Burckhardt, b. 1941.

Edward Franklin Hull and Mattie Maddox Hull also had a son, Edward Hull Jr., b. 1923, who m. Bella Phillips, 1942. Edward Hull Jr. had a daughter, Dawn Hull.

Mattie Maddox Hull’s grandparents were Reuben Thornton Hull, b. 1816, Putnam Co., GA; d. 1902, and Mary Dandridge Reagan/Ragan Hull. If there is anyone willing to help, I will be most appreciative.

 Query #106 – Hulls in Milton, Rock Co., WI–Orphan Train Hull: My name is Lisa Hull and I am developing an interest in the genealogy of the Hull side of my family. Unfortunately, my grandmother, rest her soul, could tell us little about her side of the family, as she arrived in Wisconsin via the Orphan Trains. 

However, the Hull family I am interested in finding more about lived in Milton, Rock Co., WI. I have looked through your web site—good Lord, people with the last name Hull must be related to nearly everybody in the country!

I don’t know quite where to start tracing our ancestors back. Would you be able to point me in the right direction? If I knew the information exists somewhere I would be happy to pay a membership fee in order to access this information. For some reason, I think our line might go back to Richard Hull from England. Thank you so much.

 Query #098 – Moses Hull–Anson, Rowan, and Wilkes Cos., NC–Hunterdon Co., NJ: I am new to HFA and perhaps this subject has been dealt with many times in the past.

I understand that some DNA evidence suggests that there is no genetic link between the Samuel Hull family of Piscataway NJ, ca. 1750, and Moses Hull of Anson County NC, ca. 1775.

If this is correct? Can someone assist me in establishing the origins of the first Moses Hulls of Anson, Rowan and Wilkes Counties, North Carolina and from where, if at all, they migrated from the New England area?

Sorry for the repetition, if that be the case. Thanks. [Note: This query was posted 24 Jul 2008 on MyFamily.com.]

 Query #094 – Seeking DNA Analysis for Descendant of Theodore Hull–Daniel Hull–John Theodore Hull–Daniel Louie Hull Sr.–Washington Co., OH–King Co., WA–Skagit Co., WA; Wives’ Surnames: Ellis, Rardin, Carroll: Seeking any male descendants of Daniel Louie Hull who died in Seattle, King Co., WA on 22 Jul 1960. He was the gt. grandson of Theodore Hull (1805–1888) and Elizabeth Ellis, of Washington Co., OH.

Theodore Hull is my 3rd gt. grandfather and I have been searching for a male (Y chromosome) descendant of Theodore for many years. Theodore had three sons. Sons Samuel and Daniel both died in the Civil War. My 2nd gt. grandfather, Sgt. Reuben E. Hull, survived the war but had no male children, by his wife Ellen E. Griffith. His daughter, Emma Adell Hull, was my gt. grandmother. Samuel Hull died in 1863 without offspring.

However, Theodore’s oldest son, Daniel, who died in 1864, and his wife Hulda Rardin, did have one son, John Theodore Hull, who was born in Washington County, Ohio in 1859. He married Virginia “Jennie” May Carroll, and died in Sedro-Woolley, Skagit County, Washington in 1915. John Theodore Hull had one son, named Daniel L. Hull, born in Washington in 1905, who passed away in Seattle in 1960. His death record lists him as Dan Louie Hull Sr. which would imply that he had a son.

If we can find a male Hull descended from Theodore Hull, and more specifically from Daniel Louie Hull Sr., we will be able to determine, once and for all, if our Hull line is descended, as rumored, from the Rev. Joseph Hull of Crewkerne, co. Somerset, England who arrived in Massachusetts in 1635.

 Query #080 – Birth Mother Cynthia Hull–Clinton, Clinton Co., IA: I am searching for a Cynthia Hull who would have been in the Clinton, Iowa area in June 1963. She is my birth mother. There is no other information in the court files other than her name. There is no birth father’s name listed either. On the adoption petition Cynthia asserted that the name and whereabouts of the birth father were unknown. I do not know if she was single or married at the time. I do not know how old she was either. Cynthia had me at Jane Lamb Hospital in Clinton, Iowa on June 27, 1963. The doctor was Dr. Don F. Mirick. My adoptive parents told me that my birth mother was a paraplegic from polio and in a wheelchair. I cannot prove this but it is what I was told. My adoptive mom was a nurse at the same hospital and also worked with Dr. Mirick. My adoptive mother died January 1992, so I can’t ask any other questions.

If there is anything anyone can do for me to help me try to find Cynthia Hull I will appreciate it greatly. Thank you.

  • Ref.: 1850 Census, Allegheny Twp., Blair Co., PA: James, 39, with his wife Christina 27, Mary J., 1 (daughter), Elizabeth, 59 (his mother?), Mary Hallet, 34 (his sister?), and Abraham Fetters, 56.

Others who appear in Antis, Blair Co., PA are Andrew Hull, 69, b. MD, Rachel, 55, b. MD, David Hull, 40, b. PA, Margaretta 37, b. PA.

  • Ref.: Family of Abraham Fetters (from Robert Fetters), Huntingdon Co., PA. Court Records 1828: David Hull gave oath of testimony about estate of Jacob Fetters, decd. May 20, 1833 Court Records: deed for Abraham Fetters, son of Jacob Fetters. James Hull witnessed claims.
  • Ref.: Blair Co., PA Tax list: James Hull in Logan Twp. 1850–1856. In 1852 David Hull appears in the same Logan Twp. records; in 1856 James’s name is crossed out and David is written over it. David continues to appear until 1858 when his name is crossed out.

If Elizabeth is James Hull’s mother and she was born in MD, and Andrew and Rachel were born in MD, this may lead to some connection to James and Elizabeth. Both David Hull and James Hull testify for Abraham Fetters about land and his deceased father, Jacob Fetters. This shows that both David and James were close to the Fetters. James’s name being crossed out in the tax records and David’s name replacing it, shows another possible connection between James and David. When James moves to Illinois in ~1856, this is when David’s name replaces James.

  • 1860 Stephenson Co., IL Census: James, his wife Christina, and his first 2 children who were born in PA. ~1853, Matilda and 1855 William A., and an additional daughter Amanda, 2, are included in the census.
  • 1860 Freeport, Stephenson Co., IL Census shows Elizabeth Hull, b. MD, along with Rachel Hull, 30, b. OH, Josephine, 14, b. OH, and George, 40, b. OH. Elizabeth living with other Hulls who were born in OH shows the great possibility of connection to the Hulls of OH. I am not aware of any connection yet.
  • 1865 Stephenson Co., IL State Census places James and Christina and children in Harlem Twp.
  • 1865 Stephenson Co., IL State Census places Elizabeth with 4 males in the City of Freeport, IL.

James and Christina are both buried in Stephenson Co., IL in Grandview Cemetery. Elizabeth Hull, widow, and Rachel Hull sell lot in Freeport, IL, October 1866 (Ref.: Stephenson Co. Deed book #45). Elizabeth does not show up in any of the censuses after the sale of the lots. I have no record of her death either.

 Query #078 – Daniel Hull & Wife Elizabeth [_?_]–Son Elijah Charles Hull–Greene & Morgan Cos., IL: Some sites have listed Daniel Hull as being the son of Joseph and Keziah Christie Hull. I do not believe this is my Daniel, who was b. ca. 1797 in NC but was living in IL during the 1850 census. Would like to find out for sure who my Daniel is actually related to.
