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.

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.

   20 Sep 2014 | Spokt Is Not Spam: From the HFA Website Committee to All HFA Members: Earlier this week you hopefully received a message with a subject-line that ran something like this: “David Hughes invited you to Spokt.com!” If you suspected that this was spam, it is not.
   Spokt.com is the alternative that we have chosen to replace MyFamily.com, which is shutting down at the end of the month. The invitation to join Spokt is legitimate. You may already have thrown away your invitation. If so, please email me and ask for another.
   All of the MyFamily.com queries (News category) have been migrated to Spokt, but it has not yet developed all the features of MyFamily.com. The good news is that many of the missing features have been stored by Spokt and will be implemented later. We’ll keep you posted.
   Feel free to look through Spokt and let us know what you’d like changed so we can create a wish list to send to Spokt.

 Query #388 – Emiline Hull 1832 Sampler; Seeking a Relative: I am a Fairman/Botsford descendant. Apparently there are collateral Hulls and Thompsons. Somewhere this Emiline Hull sampler entered my family and has come down to me. I have been told there were connections in Chicago in the mid-1800s into the mid-1900s with Fairman/Morehouse/Sherman collaterals.
   I think it’s only right and proper to return this old sampler to a lineal descendant if there are any who would cherish and protect it.
   If no such person is located my family will certainly continue to take good care of it, especially if we turn out to be the closest interested collaterals. I have not been able to find this Emiline with Google. Perhaps you can find a genealogical trace. We would definitely be interested in any information you would wish to share with us.
   Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

 Query #387 – Benjamin Hull, 1745, NJ, m. Hannah _?_, bur. Perry Co Ohio: Benjamin is my 5th gt. grandfather and I know that there was an article about this family in the HFA Journal Volume 17, Number 1, Spring 2007, and Number 2, Summer of 2007. I am wondering if any progress has been made on determining who Benjamin’s parents were and what Hannah’s maiden name was.

 Query #385 – Desire info and ancestry on my 3rd gt grandmother, Melvina Hull, who married Anderson P. Meadows; res.: Monroe & Giles Cos., WV: I am trying to seek information on the ancestry of my 3rd gt grandmother, Melvina Hull, who married Anderson P. Meadows on March 16,1850, in Monroe Co., VA (now WV) and lived in neighboring Giles County, VA. The Peterstown, WV Cemetery in Giles County, VA has a Henry Hull born in Augusta County, VA in 1760 and served in the American Revolution. I wonder if this is my lineage.
