 Query #332 – Seeking info on Amanda (Hull) Nelson and Nels W. Nelson of Pike Co., IL and Saunders Co., NE: Amanda (Hull) Nelson m. Nels W. Nelson in Kinderhook, Pike Co., IL, and came to Nebraska to live, raised their children and died here. Also Amanda’s sister—I think her name was Emma Hull, who married a Oseager/Osceger—also lived and died in Valparaiso, NE, Saunders Co. I am looking for the book that my grandpa, Orville Roland Nelson, said had the Nelson side listed in it, with possible photos. I believe it was by Wm. Edgar Hull published in 1964, Hull Families in the United States.
   If there are Nelsons listed in this book, I would like to find a copy of book, or at least a copy of the pages relating to the Nelson family in NE. Thank you

 Query #330 – Seeking info on David Hull, b. ca. 1839 or 1841, Prussia: I am researching David Hull supposedly born 1839 or 1841 in Prussia. All the information I have on him is here. I know he was on the 1850 census living in Bond County, Illinois with William Torrie Hull. I have no record of him before that. He may have been adopted, but I cannot find proof of that.
    The story passed down in our family is that he was on an orphan train and taken in by the Hull family. It was always said he was from Prussia. I have learned the orphan train did not start until 1854 and he was on the 1850 census with William Torrie Hull.
    Do you have any connection to this individual?

 Query #328 – Boone Co., IA Hulls; seeking true facts: Several websites list Henry Wilton Hull, b. 8 Aug 1848, as the first white child born in Boone Co., IA. I understand that websites are often wrong on these things though. There was also a rumor that some genealogy research was done many years ago and a newspaper article was found disputing this.
   The article claimed his mother (Sophia Holcomb, b. 5 Nov 1827, Fulton Co., IL) was Indian. There are also several people in the family who have said this is true and who were children when she was alive and knew her. However, all of these people have passed on at this point. I am wondering if there is any evidence for this or if you have any suggestions on further research.

 Query #324 – Lt. Col. Willis D. Hull (Ret.); Portland, Chautauqua Co., NY: My maternal grandmother, Ellen Elizabeth Perry, married Willis in December 1968 in De Hague, Netherlands. He passed away in 1982 (in his middle 80s). When my grandmother passed away in 1984 my mother shipped her belongings to Washington state.
   In the process of sorting my mother’s estate I have found many, many pictures of Willis’s Hull family, dating I am sure to the 1800s. In addition I think one of his sisters married a McGrath. I have some letters between them from WWI.
   Please let me know if you would like these items.
   Willis attended Columbia University. I think he was born and raised in Portland, NY, living on the family farm on the shores of Lake Erie. I think his father was one of the original settlers of Portland. I believe he is buried in Portland, NY. I hope he is part of your website’s family. I do apologize for the sketchiness of the information. I do hope it is enough to find him in your records.
