Hi Wade

Seems like we've emailed before, but not sure. They are both daughters of T. and N. Decker Pulliam.

Suzanna married David Denton Hull. Her sister Nancy Pulliam married his brother Charles Hull. Nancy and Charles Hull were my Great Great Grandparents.

Suzanna and David had a daughter, Malinda, "Lindy" who married Bill Hinch. Bill was the son of Lucy Pulliam Hinch. So Lindy and Bill were first cousins. They never had any children, but raised a granddaughter of Lindy's brother Smith Hull.

Lindy wrote down all the genealogy she knew and gave it to the great niece she raised. This niece was Josie Staggs who married Vanus Call. Josie continued to add to Aunt Lindy's material. Josie would allow you to copy her material, but it could not leave the house. She died in the house built by her great grandfather, David Denton Hull. Josie's grandson Charles Call lives there today.

The Hulls, Pulliams, Deckers, and Wagys all lived within two miles of each other. There are many marriages in each generation between the names.

I compiled copies of the families of Thomas Pulliam and his daughter Lucy. I wanted to put them on here, but it would only store them in pdf. I'll send them to you as attachments to an email and you can open them in acrobat.
