The Thomas Hulse and Elizabeth Battershell referred to were my father's maternal line. Elizabeth was the daughter of Freeman and Nancy (Rector) Battershell of Clark Co KY.
I have census and other information documenting the family of this couple. Thomas & Elizabeth did have a son Thomas Jr. who was first married to Mary King Oct 23, 1848, and Nancy Hall in Sept.1862.This THomas died in Jackson co MO May 7, 1863 .
I have a copy of Clark Co KY marriages that gives marriage of John Huls and Mary Sims Davenport on Jan 22, 1800 with surety Stephen Davenport. This John Huls was son of Paul Huls and a brother to Thomas referred to above.
Will send further info if you contact me by email.
