Biographical / Historical

New York Quaker minister George Hull (1853-1922), son of Nehemiah Hull and Hannah Southwick, was a birthright member of Collins Monthly Meeting and descended from generations of early Quakers. In 1872 he married Juliaetta Vogan (1853-1931), and they had six surviving children. In 1891, they transferred their membership to Hartland Monthly Meeting (after 1912 informally known as Gasport Friends Meeting), and in 1895 the family built the Gasport meeting house. Their son G. Albert Hull followed his father's commitment to the Meeting. The family was deeply involved with prohibition, including temperance lectures by George Hull, a singing quartet composed of his children, and participation in the Gasport Woman's Christian Temperance Union.
