Judge Linn W. Hull

Linn W. Hull
was born in Perkins Township on April 9, 1856, to John and Angelina Walker Hull. He was educated at Oberlin College, Union College and Cornell University. He graduated from Cincinnati Law School in 1883, and soon began practicing law in Sandusky. Also in 1883, Linn W. Hull married Emily Hall. The "Bench and Bar of Ohio" stated that Judge Linn W. Hull was a "man of strong will, honest purpose, and great determination." Sadly, Judge Hull died on May 27, 1905, at the age of 40. His wife Emily had died in 1887, but three daughters survived their parents. Funeral services for Judge Linn W. Hull were held at the Congregational Church in Sandusky, with Rev. E.A. King, Rev. George H. Peeke, and Rev. J. H. Hull officiating. Burial was in Oakland Cemetery. A lengthy obituary appeared in the May 29, 1905 issue of the Sandusky Register.
