Isaac, Margaret, William and Joseph HULL Ire->Massachusetts

Isaac and Margaret Hull, married couple from Ireland.
William their son born between 1844-1847 IN Belfast, according to his death certificate which also makes him born in 1844.....William came to America according to Census' in 1869....he brought along his little brother and I mean little they were 15-20 years apart in age. Joseph is my great great grandfather, after he came to America he married wife Lizzie Floretta Orne and had 3 children Joseph, George and one other. Joseph died in 1887 from typhoid fever, and Lizzie had 2 more children(daughters who carried Hull name though IMPOSSIBLE to be Joseph's, they were both born in the 1890's)

I can not find anything or get further back than them. I only know Margaret as HULL no maiden surname. I can not find anything online anywhere in records regarding Isaac and Margaret. The only records I can find on William and Joseph are AFTER they arrived in the states, i don't even know what route they took when leaving Ireland and ending up in Massachusetts.....No one kept any family info. Fortunately the names of Joseph's parents had always been known to the family but that is it.

Everything on Joseph just states BORN IN IRELAND never a city/county nothing. William's death certificate listing only BELFAST, Ireland as birth place, everything else Ive found has only said Ireland for him also. I am really hoping to find out more about them and am defitely hoping to find more of their family members out there. I don't know if isaac and Margaret had any other children. i find it weird William was born between 1844 and 1847 and they didnt have Joseph until 1858 or 1859, unless their were others in between that died as infants or children. I haven't been able to really make any contact with any of Williams' direct descendants to see if they perhaps know more, or had photos letters and such written between him and the Motherland.......I am at my wits end, more pay outs are impossbile at the time, as I have been out of work and searching for over a year to find a new job with no luck. I am really hoping SOMEONE, ANYONE has these 4 people in their trees also.........
