William Brooks Hull grew up in North Royalton, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, and graduated from North Royalton High School. During childhood, in the summer his family would visit his paternal grandparents in Gasport, Niagara County, New York; and his maternal grandparents at their dairy farm in Lisbon, St. Lawrence County, New York. Bill's grandfather, George Clements, taught him how to milk a cow (by hand) when Bill was eight years old. A couple years later, Bill's other grandfather, G. Albert Hull, showed him his copy of the book, The Hull Family in America, and showed him the page where Albert was listed with his parents and siblings. This experience instilled in Bill an early interest in genealogy, which was heightened in young adulthood when he received of copy of a journal begun in 1908 by his grandmother, Ethel May (Brooks) Hull.

Bill has worked as a "printer's devil," setting type by hand; an auto parts store counterman and assistant manager; a school bus driver; a charter coach driver; a tractor trailer driver (mostly on bulk milk routes); and a draftsman for a structural steel company. He attended the State University of New York College at Potsdam in his forties, and graduated summa cum laude with a degree in math and geology.

Bill's hobbies include drawing and painting, genealogy and historical research, contra and square dancing, and barefoot hiking.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for adding to Henry B Rowley. Connecticut Vital Records shows the birth date of Bateman Rowley as son of Thomas and Lois Rowley, Nov 15, 1766 in Kent, CT. Is the Henry Rowley info you found for Henry B or Bateman Rowley, or another name?

The American Genealogist states that there may have been two Henry B. Rowleys - 1 born in 1766 who possibly died young, and one born 10 years later, which would be the one you found. It sounds like there isn't definitive sourcing for either/both.

I've been searching for years to try to determine which married Mary/Polly Wilson and had children with her.

Thank you. Sharon
