Henry Hull was born in Pendleton County, Virginia May 19, 1819; one of nine children born to Adam and Elizabeth (Hevner) Hull, both natives of the same county.

About 1823, Adam Hull moved to Sidney, Shelby County, Ohio, where he held the office of Sheriff six years. In 1830, he and family came to Fort Wayne, Allen County, remained one year, then moved to Eel River Township, same county, bought forty acres of land and entered 253 more. Shortly after, he entered eighty across in this township, now occupied by our subject.

Adam was for a time Postmaster at Eel River Post Office, and also Justice of the Peace. He died in the township September 4, 1838.

Henry Hull, our subject, remained on the old farm til seven years after his father's death, then bought the interest of the other heirs in the farm this township, and in 1846 took possession. He has since added to the place, until now it consists of 228 acres of well-improved land, parts of which he had deeded to his children. December 19, 1838, he married Jane Gardner, daughter of Benjamin and Phebe (Hoage) Gardner, natives of New York, and there have been born to them the following children William H., Isaac T., Elizabeth (now Mrs Lloyd Siphers), Felix, Phebe and Franklin. William T. and Isaac T. were members of Company C, Eighty-eighth Indiana Volunteer Infantry, having enlisted in the fall of 1862. William H. was seized by measles at Bowling Green, Ky., and was discharged in February, 1863; Isaac T. was taken ill at Gallatin, Tenn., and was discharged in March, 1863. William H. was Township Trustee of Union for four years, and was Assessor for four years. He is a Mason. Our subject is a Democrat, and is quite prominent in his township
