I think we are researching the same family. Apparently we have several Abraham C. Hulls in the same family with brothers naming their kids after father or other relatives.
My Abraham Conklin Hull is a "Jr." and he has a brother named John G. Hull. My bet is that John named his son after his little brother- Abraham Conklin Hull Jr. or after his father Abraham Conklin Hull Sr. My Abraham Jr. and most of his family along with Abraham Sr. moved to St. Louis, Mo. about 1830 time frame and lived there the rest of their lives. Abraham Conklin Hull Jr. was the first paid fire dept. chief in St. Louis when it went from a volunteer agency to a paid department. He and his father both were initially blacksmiths and then they branched out into tin and other metal working. Abraham Hull had a land grant that was very close to the St. Louis area in Warren County Mo. His brother David Prine Hull also had a land grant in the immediate area of Illinois to east St. Louis. So... I am guessing this was why the family moved to this Area of Missouri to begin with.
The really STRANGE thing is that there is another Abram C. Hull who also was a fire chief in New York City, but, the time frame is somewhat later and this is how I know it is not my Abraham Jr.
I have extensive source information, bible records and one picture of Abraham Jr. in his fire garb as a fire chief. At this time I am almost ready to connect this family to a Nathaniel Hull family from Conn. Nathaniel married a Sarah Conklin. (thus the middle name Conklin) Her father was Abraham Conklin. (thus the first name of Abraham.) One of the kids of Nathaniel and Sarah was Thomas Carpenter Hull. Sarah's grandmothers maiden name was Carpenter.
As you can see the naming patterns are EXTREMELY IMPORTANT in this family.
Please contact me if any of this sounds familar.
