Tombstone Tuesday ~ Freelove KELSEY and Samuel HULL

Freelove KELSEY and her husband, Samuel HULL, are my third Great Grandparents. Freelove is the daughter of Jonah (1725-1772) & Martha (1727-?) Nettleton Kelsey.
Catharine Hull`s father, Samuel HULL, was a son of George HULL, Jr., and a lineal descendant of George HULL, who came from England in 1630 and settled in Dorchester, Massachusetts.
Samuel HULL, was born June 15, 1755, married Freelove KELSEY, June 20, 1781, and reared twelve children.
This family moved from Killingworth, Connecticut, in the fall of 1809, to Candor, Tioga County, New York State, and made their first settlement on a farm.

SOURCE: #1 This information about the lineage of Samuel HULL was recorded in a 33 page handwritten family tree of my father's ancestors. It was researched by his first cousin in 1984 and a copy was given to my Mother in 1986.
#2 - Historical Gazetteer of Tioga County, New York, 1785-1888, compiled & Edited by W. B. Gay, (Published by W. B. Gay & Co., Syracuse, N.Y.), pages 181-182. ~ CG 2011
#3 - Photos were provided courtesy of D. S. who is a member of Find A Grave. When I told him that the HULL family were my ancestors he kindly transferred all that he had to me. I'm assuming that he is not related to the HULL family, but an enthusiastic tombstone photographer.

Maple Grove Cemetery, Candor, Tioga County, New York
FREELOVE wife of SAMUEL HULL DIED February 19, 1841, aged 81 years and 5 months.
