    Biography
    • From Bell's History of Northumberland County 1891: WILLIAM HULL was a native of Sussex county, New Jersey, born July 17, 1771, and settled in Turbut township, Northumberland county, Pennsylvania, in the last decade of the eighteenth century, where he married Hannah Marr, January 12, 1797. Her father, Joseph Marr, came from Northampton county, Pennsylvania, in 1793, and located immediately north of Milton. She was born March 23, 1777, and was about sixteen years old when her father settled in this county. To William and Hannah Hull were born fourteen children, only nine of whom reached maturity: Susan, who married Samuel McCarty; Elizabeth; Jesse; David: Alem; William P.; Thomas R.; Sarah A., who married John H. Brown, and Hannah M., who married Robert M. Slater. William Hull died upon the homestead farm in 1828; his widow afterward moved into Milton, where she died February 10, 1858, in the eighty-first year of her age.
    Biography
    • William Hull, one of the early settlers of Turbot township, Northumberland County, Pa., was born in Sussex County, N. J., July 17, 1771.

      William Hull was a direct descendant of Benjamin Hull, whom tradition says was a Frenchman, who came to America and settled in Massachusetts in 1640. Later he went to Sussex County, N. J., being among the earliest settlers of that county. His son, Benjamin, lived near Newton, Hampton township, Sussex County, N. J., for many years on the farm his father settled; this estate was known later as the Bale farm.

      He settled in Northumberland County, Pa., before 1800, where he married on January 12, 1797, Hannah Marr, a daughter of Joseph Marr. She was born March 23, 1777, and died February 10, 1858, surviving her husband thirty years.

      They were the parents of fourteen children, but only nine of these grew to maturity. The names of the nine were: Susan, who married Samuel McCarthy; Elizabeth; Jesse; David; Alem; William P.; Thomas R., our subject's father; Sarah A., who married J. H. Brown; and Hannah, who married Robert M. Slater.

      Mr. Hull lived near Milton with his large family on a farm now owned by Mr. Grosh, and the buildings standing today are monuments of his energy and industry, and the fine estate which he left is an indication of his financial success.
