Re: need information on William J. Null

Michelle,

I can help you a little bit, but I'm a little unsure of how this William J. NULL fits in. Maybe someone else can help.

There are a lot of William NULLs in Missouri, and several William J. NULLs. I can trace mine back to a William NULL in Jefferson County. I belive the initial "J" stands for "Jefferson" because one of my ancestors was listed as William Jefferson NULL IV.

The 1900 census lists a William J. NULL family in Miller County, Missouri, Richwood Township, Supervisor's District #149, Enumerator's District #86, Sheet 3A.

Here is a partial listing of the family, including name, relationship, month and year of birth, age, state of birth, father's state of birth and mother's state of birth:

Null,
William J. Head April 1856 44 Missouri Missouri Missouri
Loviey Wife July 1866 34 Iowa Ohio Kentucky
Harry R. Son Jan 1886 14 Missouri Missouri Iowa
Charles A. Son Jan 1889 11 Missouri Missouri Iowa
Myrtle Dau Feb 1891 9 Missouri Missouri Iowa
Bula Dau Oct 1892 7 Missouri Missouri Iowa
Archie Son Sept 1894 5 Missouri Missouri Iowa
NULL,
Evaline Head May 1833 67 Missouri Missouri Missouri

The census also indicates that William and Loviey (sp?) were married 15 years (They must have married in the first half of 1885) and that they had seven children, five of whom survived.

It's interesting that they were enumerated right next to Evaline NULL, a widow. I have a Michael NULL married first to Eliza Julia Hildebrand and second to Eveline Hensley on February 25, 1855 in Franklin County, Missouri. Michael died in 1899. But, I don't have a William as a son from either marriage. So, I'm not certain where this William J. NULL fits in. Maybe someone else can help us out.

Regards,
Gary
