  1. Hello! I am a great-great-great granddaughter of Hulsaver’s. My great-great Grandfather was a Hulsaver and his daughter Sarah/Sadie was my great grandmother. I would love to know more. Did my DNA with 23 and me and I know she was born/raised on a canal boat. My family is from Buffalo.

  2. Hi Holly,
    Who was your gr gr gr grandfather? William? I have kept a short Hulsaver tree on my db to help me sort out the family lines. Because of their itinerant life style, research into the Hulsaver family is difficult. Contact me at ethelmae@aol.com and we will see if we can help each other out. Ethel Ingalls

  3. Hi, Holly and Ethel! I matched with up with the info on Mary Jane Douglass who married William Henry Hulsaver. My ancestors are the Hulsavers of the Erie Canal. I have record of Sarah Ann Hulsaver (1840-1893), daughter of Christopher Hulsaver (1813-1886) who I believe is brother — but have not been able to confirm— to my ggg grandfather Henry Hulsaver (1810-1872). Would love to know more!

    • Hi Denise, I thought your name sounded familiar. I tried to contact you back in 2007 from an old post but the email attached to the post would not go through. So glad to be in touch again. Let’s chat by email. Ethel
