Hull, Daniel B. (25 FEB 1832 - 26 JUN 1909)

(Stevens Point Daily Journal)

Daniel Babcock Hull passed away at his home at 720 Minnesota Av. At 8 o’clock Saturday night (June 26th, 1909), as the result of heart trouble and to general breakdown incident to age. He had been in poor health for just about a year, and since February has been an almost helpless invalid, although during the past month he had recovered sufficiently to walk out into the yar with the aid of a cane. In February he had a serious attack of pneumonia, from which he seemed unable to fully recuperate.

Mr. Hull was born in Renssalaer Co., N.Y. on Feb. 25, 1832, so that he was now in his seventy-eighth year. He came to Stevens Point in the early fifties and on Oct. 28, 1858, he married Miss Mary Christian in this city. He enlisted in the Union army on Aug. 21, 1862, and served as a corporal in Co. H of the Third Cavalry, until dischared for disability on March 20, 1863. Returning to Stevens Point he engaged in farming, lumbering, etc., until 1872, when the family removed to Colby, Wis., where the deceased took up a homestead and where they continued to reside until 1883, when they returned to Stevens Point. Most of the time since then has been spent very quietly on the little berry farm on Minnesota Av. Mrs. Hull passed away on Oct. 12, 1908. Their married life had been very harmonious and happy, and the death of the wife had a very serious effect upon the husband.

The deceased was a gentleman in every sense of the word, and lived up to high ideals of life and character, enjoying the respect and confidence of all who knew him to an unusual degree.

They are survived by a daughter, Mrs. Theodore Parker of South Bellingham, Wash., and an adopted son, Frank Hull of this city, who has resided at the old home since his parents were taken sick. He is also survived by two brothers and a sister, J.L. Hull of Little Genesee, N.Y., Thomas Hull of Ocala, Fla., and Mrs. Carrie H. Green of Alfred, N.Y.

The funeral was held from the residence at 2 o’clock this afternoon (Monday, June 28th), Rev. C.F. Spray officiating, the interment following in Union Cemetery. The pallbearers were: S.W. Andrews, J.R. Sawtell, Chas. Dake, E. McGlachlin, A.D. Phelps and Henry Johnson.
