About the Hull Family Association title image

The Hull Family Association (HFA) is a non-profit association, organized in October 1985 by a small group of Hull* descendants from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, and Colorado to develop, preserve, and exchange information on Hull history and genealogy in the United States.

Note: This website contains no publicly available information. All genealogical data is maintained off-line, and is provided to HFA members only. We regret that, due to constraints of time and effort, we cannot respond to non-member requests for genealogical information. A list of genealogical benefits for members is available here. Non-members are welcome to submit queries using this query form.

Notice to our HFA Members and Prospective Members

The HFA specializes in correcting wrong lineages, found in great numbers out on the Internet, in published and unpublished family histories, and in many other sources. We believe in documenting everything that we can. For our members, upon your request, we can send three family group sheets at a time, complete with our references, by e-mail, plus correcting errors that we spot in our members’ lineages.

Submissions Policy

All submissions to the HFA of any kind
become the joint property of the submitter
and the HFA, with the understanding that the
HFA may, using its own discretion, share this
information with others unless otherwise
requested in writing by the submitter.
The submitter’s expenses cannot
be reimbursed by the HFA.
Questions? E-mail us.

   21 Jan 2016 | Notice to Our HFA Members: From Phyllis J. Hughes, HFA Genealogist and Journal editor – Please let one of your New Year’s Resolutions be that, when you are sending e-mails to our HFA officers—especially to me—that you will:

(1) Always sign your full name. You would be surprised at how many e-mails we get giving only your given name and you would also be surprised at how many of our members have the same given names. It takes up our valuable time to try and decide just who is writing.

(2) Always include your HFA number with your mail. That helps us to locate your lineage more readily and, in turn, helps us to answer your questions.

We regret that we can no longer guarantee that your e-mail will be answered promptly if you neglect to give us your full name and your HFA number.

  • 30 Jun 2016 Reply from the HFA Genealogist: Please e-mail me privately and I’ll look up a Journal article which we did on this line. It may not be proof positive for this marriage, but sometimes one has to use contributing or indirect collateral and circumstantial evidence in the absence of the official marriage records.

 Query #407 – Steven Hull Sr and Steven Hull Jr in Polk Co. Florida 1861: I am researching the family and heirs of Ezekiel Hull of Arcadia, Manatee Florida in the 1860s. I came across a list of taxpayers in Polk Co. Florida in 1861, and Steven Sr. and Steven Jr. were listed.
   Does anyone know if Steven Hull is related to Ezekiel?
   I am seeking siblings of Ezekiel J. Hull and parents. Ezekiel was born in Burke Co. Georgia, as well as his wife Mary Miller who was also born in Georgia.

  • 12 May 2016 Reply from the HFA Genealogist: We have no evidence at all that any Steven or Stephen Hull was a relative of Ezekiel Hull. However, we are showing three family group sheets for the Stephen Hulls in Polk Co., FL, which I can send to you by e-mail upon your request. Studying these Stephen Hulls may help you to decide if they are relatives of yours. At the present time, I am showing 139 Hull family group sheets for Hulls in FL, so there may be many more in that location than what you are aware of.
