 Query #317 – Seeking info on great grandmother Marie Margaret (Hull) Pitts; mother Mary Rhodes; who is the Hull father? Do you have any contacts from researchers doing research on the half-siblings of Marie Margaret Hull? The half-siblings were Daniel Powers and Mamie Powers. All three list Mary Rhodes as their mother on the military and marriage documents I found online. Mamie Powers was living in Ohio, then lived in Tennessee, before she a married a widower named Richard S. Mandeville in Montana. Richard Mandeville had two daughters who were married with families—one married a Walsh and the other married a White. Daniel Powers lived in Tennessee and married [_?_] White and they had a child die and divorced; then Daniel Powers joined the Army and named Mamie (Powers) Mandeville as next of kin on his military paperwork.

I met the Mandevilles in 1959 when they came to our home and transported my mother to the funeral of Marie Margaret (Hull) Pitts. Marie was my mother’s grandmother and half-sister of Mamie (Powers) Mandeville. It would be interesting to locate photos, find out from extended family about Marie Margaret Hull and who her parents were.

 Query #316 – Richard Savillian Hull, New Haven Co., CT: I am the granddaughter of William Henry Hull of New Haven, CT (son of Richard Savillian Hull, also of New Haven). I am just getting started in the process. We have a copy of the early 1900s book—my uncle, Frank Goetz Hull, annotated it, so that it is easier to trace the generations.

I would love to know if any of Richard Savillian’s siblings had children. I remember hearing of Uncle Byron. Not sure what else at this point. I am new to this.

 Query #292 – Abraham Hull m. Martha Whitfield Reynolds, 1841; Bible Record: Phyllis, I am not related to the Hull family. I do have a soft spot for family relics and tossing a 100 to 200 year old family Bible out is something I do not understand. I have picked them up and spent days looking for heirs. If I do not find them then I still will not throw them away. I have placed two Bibles in the past month to descendants of early 1800 ancestors who once owned them. I am sending you the Hull pages from a Bible that I placed with a family. The Hull pages were folded up in the Bible and we do not see how they are related to the original owners or their descendants. Please let me know what you find out about this family. I will also enclose some of my research in trying to locate heirs.

The first entry is Abraham Hull, born Jan. 21, 1817, married to Martha Whitfield Reynolds on 4th March 1841, died June 21st, 1884, aged 67 yrs & 5 months. Children were Mary Elizabeth Hull, John Emory Hull, Sarah Ann Hull, Ann Jane Hull, George Whitfield Hull, Alice Whitfield Hull, George Guiford Hull, Euler Lloyd Hull, Elmer Eugene Hull and Ernest Watt Hull. Also written on the page is a note “The names we go by now in the family”—Mary, Emory, Pennie, Alice, George, Lloyd, Eugene, Watt, Joe, Ben, Mason.

 Query #277 – Seeking Parents of Harvey Hull (1805–1882); Durham, Middlesex Co., CT: I am trying to find the parents of Harvey Hull (Aug. 7, 1805–Oct. 22, 1882). Most of his life was lived in Durham, Conn., but there is no mention of his birth in William Chauncey Fowler’s History of Durham, Connecticut… (Hartford: Wiley, Waterman & Eaton, 1866).

On June 28, 1841, he married Susan Cone (Dec 17, 1815–Aug 23, 1899). Some Account of the Cone Family in America… (Topeka, Kan.: Printed by Crane & Co., 1903) under the heading for Susan Cone (4430, p. 368). Harvey’s father is given as Eliakim Hull, but I have been unable to find anyone of that name whose dates would apply.

The old cemetery in Durham contains a headstone with the following inscription:

Revolutionary War
Eliakin [sic] Hull
Capt. Throops [sic] Co.
Died Oct. 30, 1811

Harvey and Susan’s children were Timothy Edgar Hull (1843–1904) and James Polk Hull (1847–1921).

I am descended from Timothy. James had no children.
