See my message concerning Kenadys.

Bethany was grown when the family came to Kinderhook, Ill. in 1829.

Thomas and Mary had a lot of kids. Bethanys picture is hanging beside that of her sister Ann Hull Orr in the museum in Hull, Ill

Thomas and Mary Hull both died at Hull, Ill on the farm and are buried 1/2 north of their home in Akers Chapel cemetery.

Mary had pumpkin pies cooling on the window sill. Indians walked up to the window and took the pies and left without causing any trouble.

James and Thomas Hull (brothers) family got to Kinderhook, Ill. late in the fall of 1829. They built a log cabin, but didn't get it done before winter set in. It only had 3 walls. They built a fire where the fourth wall would have been and kept it going all winter. Two large families lived in the 3 walled cabin for the winter. They hunted and killed everything within miles for food. The next summer and fall many babies were born. James settled there 1/2 mile east of Kinderhook, Ill. and Thomas went about 2 miles northwest and settled 1/2 mile NE of Hull, Ill.

My line:
James: Charles; Charlotte -married John Walch; Charles Walch Harry Walch; me: Grant Walch; Andrew Walch

I have a Hull family genealogy book of 912 pages. It doesn't include much from Pike Co., but I've got most of it as it was written down by a grandaughter of James, Lindy Hull Hinch.
