 Query #431 – Gt grandparents John Frederick Hull and Gertrude Grimsly; Davis Co., IA: There is a family story about my grandfather Pearl T. Hull, b. 06 Oct 1902, Davis Co., IA. He and his brother were sent to live with relatives. At some point, the relatives taking care of my grandfather told him they were going to the store and that they would be back. They never returned; instead abandoning him as a pre-teen. At age 13 he joined the Marines, by lying about his age and went off to WWI. My query is what happened to his parents? They disappeared and we have no date of death or location. Their names are: John Frederick Hull, b. 17 Feb 1877; Davis Co., IA; m. 23 Jul 1898, Gertude (Gertie) Grimsley, Van Buren Co., IA.

 Query #429 – Hulls in Wills in Mercer Co., PA: I have some information that might be of interest. Images of some wills from Mercer Co., PA are now on-line. Those researchers studying Hull, Hoagland, Hulse, Budd, etc. in Mercer County can find many clues in these wills. I was able to learn more about my ancestor Daniel Hull (m. Anna Trine) and can show that some information found in Ancestry family trees is incorrect.
   For those who doubt it, my ancestor, Mary Ann Hoagland, is named as a daughter of John Hoagland and Catherine Hull in John’s will. The names of Daniel Hull’s children who were alive in 1855 are named in his will, including the daughters’ married names.
   I also learned that Daniel Upson Budd’s wife, Lucy Ann Hull, often named as a daughter of Daniel Hull, is from another Hull family. I also have worked out connections that give clues about Daniel Hull’s second wife Lydia. Anyone studying these families may contact me and we can share research. Thanks.

 Query #428 – Seeking the parents of Isaac Hull (1814–1886), of Delaware, Athens, & Meigs Cos., OH: I’m seeking to find the parent(s) of Isaac Hull (1814–1886) born in Delaware County, OH and lived in Troy, Athens Co., as well as Olive, Meigs Co., OH. He was the father of the Rev. Charles E. Hull, who was my great grandfather. I believe Isaac’s father might have been Abraham Hull but I can’t definitively go beyond Isaac or Abraham. Any help would be appreciated.

  • 11 Sep 2017 Reply from the HFA Genealogist: This is a line whom we are very familiar with. You can order my family group sheets, three at a time. We have previously published articles on this line, which we can also recommend that you order from us, at our cost.

 Query #426 – Seeking info on grandmother Lois Frances (Hull) Carlson, daughter of Watt Ernest Hull: My grandmother was Lois Frances (Hull) Carlson. Her father was Watt Ernest Hull 1863–1940 and her mother was Anna Jane Walker (1866–1946). Watt Ernest Hull's father was Abraham Hull (1817–1884) and his mother was Martha W. Reynolds (1821–1895). Tracing back on ancestry.com, I believe Abraham's father was Christian Hull (1790–1812), and his father was Andrew (Andreas) Hull (Holl) Jr., and his father was Andrew (Andreas) Hull (Holl) Sr. I believe Andrew Sr. served in the Revolutionary War and his father was Johan Nicklas Holl (1685–1777, born in Germany?). Wondering if I can somehow confirm all of this.

  • 19 Jun 2017 Reply from the HFA Genealogist: This is a line which we have studied in quite some depth. We have also written Journal articles on this lineage. You should order my family group sheets to fill out this line (no extra charge for these) and also perhaps order some of our past HFA Journals, which I can recommend to you. These will give you our sources in order for you to document your line.

— Submitted 19 Jun 2017 by Carrie Jamieson, HFA Member #1918

  • 19 Jun 2017 Reply from the HFA Genealogist: We have found his burial place which is Memorian Cemetery, Wallingford, New Haven Co., CT, where a number of other Hulls were also buried. We would suggest that you look at these burials to see if any could be for Giles’ parents or siblings. We do have a possible candidate for your Giles’ parents. Please contact the HFA Genealogist Phyllis J. Hughes for more information on this.

  • 18 May 2017 Reply from the HFA Genealogist: We believe that Elizabeth’s parents were not Henry Hull, but rather Samuel Hull Jr. and Mary “Polly” Armstrong of Columbiana Co., OH. Our member should order these Journals for more on the line of Samuel Hull: HFA Journal, Vol. 6, No. 2 (Summer 1995), “Will the Real Samuel Hull Please Stand Up?” (Part I); Vol. 6, No. 3 (Part II).

 Query #423 – Desire Info on My 5th Gt Grandparents; German Line in VA, WV: I’m looking for Catherine Hull’s (1751–1810) parentage, ever since I saw Capt. Peter Hull’s entry in Find a Grave. Catherine married Peter Zickafoose and her parents are especially important since it looks like she’s my 5th great grandmother twice. Benjamin Zickefoose and Susannah Buzzard appear to be 2nd cousins or less; they are my 3rd great grandparents. I'm looking for help to straighten out my tree.

  • 18 May 2017 Reply from the HFA Genealogist: We are showing that Catherine was a daughter of the German Peter Thomas Hohl/Hull, who immigrated here in 1741 on the ship Frances & Ann. We are recommending that you order one of our past HFA Journals, which gives very detailed info on Peter Thomas Hohl/Hull. You can also order my family group sheet on this man at no extra charge.
