Thanks for your reply!I now have the Ators nailed down, but other questions remain:
Most importantly, do you have any idea how Ezekiel Hull (son of Platt and Susannah Sollars Hull) is related to the Daniel Notestone (Notstein, Knotstein, etc.) fanily of Hocking County, Ohio?
I have two letters from Ezekiel and his wife Susanna, written shortly after their arrival in Illinois, to the Notestones.In these letters, the Notestones are addressed variously as 'cousins' and 'brothers/sisters'.The religious context of the second letter suggests that 'brother/sister' my be a spiritual, rather than genealogical, address.
I have so far been unable to make a connection between the two families.
Any info you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
