Jacob HULL was born in Adams County, Pennsylvania, on March 10, 1807, the son of George
and Hull. Jacob Hull settled in Martinsburg, Berkeley
County, in May 1833 and moved to Hedgesville in 1838. At
that time, there were few houses in the area, so Mr. Hull, a
carpenter, joiner and mechanic, purchased a lot and built a
substantial house in Hedgesville, Berkeley County, West
Jacob Hull married Elizabeth Seibert, born in
Hedgesville in 1818, the daughter of Michael Seibert; she
died in 1862. Their three sons were: George M. Hull, John T.
Hull, and Dallas S. Hull. All three sons were in the
Confederate service under Jackson, in the 2nd Virginia
Regiment and served through the entire war. John T. Hull was
a second lieutenant in Company G of that regiment and was
severely wounded at the battle of Chancellorsville. George
M. Hull was wounded slightly at the battle of Fort Republic
and was taken prisoner in 1865 to Point Pleasant. Dallas S.
Hull was also wounded during that battle.
