Smull Family Stories

Peter Smull, was one of four brothers of German descent who settled in Centre County, Pennsylvania in the early 1800s. Peter, a stone mason like brothers Henry and Jacob, eventually moved to Stephenson County, Illinois in the 1850s. These are stories of his progeny posted within these pages. There are lots of unanswered questions about where the Smull brothers came from, who their parents and sisters were, and who Mary's family was, but I've put together a pretty good patchwork of the children and have theorized about their beginnings. As always, I'm hoping someone will see this and have something pertinent to help solve the mysteries. So much of what is on family trees in Ancestry is just wrong, wrong, wrong.

THE "OTHER" SMULL FAMILY

There is also a family of Smulls descended from Andrew Smull (1765-1818) who are often mixed in with "our" Smulls. While they followed a similar trajectory in pioneering, they are not from the same direct lineage. Still, some of them keep cropping up - and not in a good way.
