(Immigrant Ancestors Unknown)


Compiled by
Granvyl G. Hulse, Jr.



The list that follows contains introductions to a number of sizable family groupings of which we presently do not know their relationship to an immigrant ancestor. If anyone can provide additional information that will help us make a connection, we would be most appreciative. In fact there would be general rejoicing, with champagne and caviar served, as some of these families are quite large, descending many generations from the ancestors listed here. We are also looking forward, and if you find that you belong to one of these Family Units, and can provide us with information relating to later generations it will be sincerely welcomed.


Some of these families have recorders. Please refer to that sectionof the web page for their addresses. If a Family Recorder is not listed,please contact the Central Recorder, Kim Davis ( for additional information.


Do NOT repeat NOT attempt to prepare your family tree from any ofthis material. Contact either the Family Recorder (if there is one), or the Central Recorder for further information.

According to Dale Gilliland, who is researching this line, some of his older relatives (now deceased) had indicated that Samuel was born at Hempstead, Queens Co., New York. From what Dale mentioned this might be the Samuel of Family Unit #62, but proof is lacking. Samuel is on the 1870 census and the 1880 Soundex in Douglas Township., Sac Co., Iowa. His daughter, Mary, related to her children that Samuel came from Minnesota and was a logger before living in Iowa. Was not located in the Minnesota census.

William Hultz, senior visited Middlesex Township, Butler Co., Pennsylvania in 1793 with a party of hunters, returning the next year with his family to settle on the spot where he had carved his name on a tree. (From Horner Genealogy) The parents of William are not known. In the Bethel Cemetery at New Bedford, Pennsylvania are the graves of Isaac and Jenny Hultz. Isaac is listed as a grandson of Henry Hultz, which might connect this family with the Trumbull Co. Henry K. Hulse of Family Unit #91. This family might also tie into Family Unit #105.


The four counties concerned, Mahoning and Trumbull Counties in Ohio, and Mercer and Lawrence Counties in Pennsylvania, adjoin each other. The distances between the various villages are only a matter of a few miles. While there may be no connection between the two families the coincidence of their settling in the same area should not be overlooked.

Howard and Silas may descend from a Benjamin Hulse/Hultz of Dingham Township, Pike Co., Pennsylvania. He was there in the census of 1830, 1840, and 1850. In the latter there was also a Rowan Hultz mentioned. The Benjamin (R06/090/039 of Clan R) was born in 1792 and married a Dorothy Reeve. Only one child of record and that was Henry V. Hulse, who was born in 1820 and married in 1850 Mary E. Hulse. Insufficient information is on hand to determine where the Benjamin of Clan R lived or whether he could have had more than the one child.


This family may also be connected with Family Unit #94 as two sons (George and Henry) of Jonathan were living in the same town in Iowa as Howard and Silas.
