Great-Granddad's Great-Granddad: Daniel E. Hull, Sr. (1768-1854)

Missourian John Daniel Hull I (1866-1953) was my great-grandfather. He crowed about my birth and I got to meet him before he died. Below in turn is the grave of his own great-grandfather Virginian Daniel E. Hull, Sr. (1768-1854). With 12 years separating their lives, they unfortunately never met. They were, respectively, 87 and 85 at death. I first visited Daniel's grave on May 6, 2015. It's beautifully kept by church people I don't know and have not met. Compared to my mother's family, my father's German side of family from the Palatine were relative newcomers to America. My mother's family came from Suffolk, England to Massachusetts in 1634.
