William was the son of Abner and Elizabeth Parker Hull ~
On September 2, 1795, Abner Hull married Elizabeth Parker in Lincoln County,
N.C. . She was born about 1780 possibly in New Jersey, and was 15 years old at
the time of the marriage. Abner was 23, having been born in September 1772.
Elizabeth's birthplace is not known. Abner died April 4, 1852 and is buried in
Western Lincoln Co., NC.
he was acquainted with a Capt. Moses Moore
This puts the Hull family in Middlesex in 1787.
Abner and Elizabeth Parker Hull are buried in a stand of trees off the highway outside of Lincolnton.
I was quietly researching in a library in Lincolnton some years ago when the stillness was interrupted by a voice..asking me if I was searching for a "Abner Hull." I looked up and a fellow walked over and told me that he knew where he was buried. I was elated!
Not long after that chance encounter, I went to find Abner for myself.
I went to a nearby house, as I was instructed, and not only was I given directions but I was given a ride to the location, in a golf cart, by the man himself. He was just as nice as he could be to me.
Abner was the son of Benjamin and Sarah Hutchison Hull.
BENJAMIN HULL OF NORTH CAROLINA
During the early 1790's Benjamin Hull and his family came to live in Lincoln
County, North Carolina. There has been some speculation that the Hull originated from Holland, but not sure about this yet.
Benjamin, born August 27, 1740, was already 50 years old. Family tradition says that "He came to North Carolina with only a sack of grain on his back.". That may have been his only possession, but we presume that his family was with him, or followed soon thereafter. His wife was Sarah Hutchison who was born in 1749 and at age 41 was a bit younger than her spouse. They brought the children with them.
The oldest was a son named Abner who was 18 at the time.
Mary, a daughter, was 17 years of age.
Two other sons, Benjamin and Richard were with them, both being about 15 years old.
A younger son, William was along. William was about five years old.
And there was Sarah who was about four years of age.
Their last child, Major, may have been born in NC. Major's birth date was June 11, 1790.
The first written record of Benjamin Hull in North Carolina occurs on June 20,
1792 when he is granted 200 acres of land on the fork of Indian Creek on the
head of Long Bridge, westerly of the widow Ramsour. After that, Benjamin was
seen obtaining other property around this location in 1793 and 1794. Abner, his
first born, was granted land in 1799 near his father. All of the sons are seen
obtaining land near their father as they became of age, with the exception of
Another accounting of Benjamin occurred on January 22, 1798.
In Civil Action Papers of Lincoln County, N.C. there is a complaint by Henry Ramer vs. Benjamin
Hull Sr. & Jr., and Abner Hull.
It appears that they and two other gentlemen, "with force and arms came into the woods near Ramer's house and did there steal, carry away and kill a certain Barrow hog on the property of Ramer".
Don’t you just hate it when someone steals your Barrow Hog?? giggle
Fortunately, they were found not guilty. By reviewing census records of the state, it appears
that Benjamin and his sons were farmers. Perhaps they were hunters also and
mistook Mr. Ramer's hog as one in the wild??
Stepping into those deeply canopied woods was an experience that I will never forget. A small footpath led the way. A hush fell all around us as we made our way up the path. There in a small clearing was the headstones of Abner and his wife. That moment of discovery made it’s mark on this girl. I got the goosebumps and the lump in my throat and I was hooked. I was forever changed when I emerged out of those trees. I was a seeker of the lost family from that day forward and I haven’t regretted one moment.
Abner and his wife, located in that stand of trees, seemingly separated from the rest of the family, that are buried along that same highway, just a few miles further up. Hull’s Grove Community. A whole grove full of our family. If you get a chance, stop in and visit. They will be waiting for you.
