Huling/Hulen/Hulin/Hulan/Hulon/ many other derivatives are probably related. The Hulings would more than likely be a different branch than the above mentioned, however to say that as fact would be a risky gamble. Deriviatives of spelling vary according to location, education etc. I have a definate example of three brothers one Hulin one Hulan and one Huling. They may have chose different spellings however that would be speculation. The name change for them occured post Civil War, and prior to that they were Hulen. Another interesting speculation is origin-France is a good guess-via England another good guess. These branches have been in America since pre revolutionary days and were probably mariners of sort. To say they were French, well I have not seen any data to support that claim. I suspect it is true, but would love to see the data to support the claims.
