    Notes 
    • From "The Hulls of Georgia" by Augustus Longstreet Hull:

      ASBURY HULL, born January 30, 1979, resembled his father in personal appearance. He was a lawyer by profession and a man of affairs. He was planter, banker, legislator, and for forty-seven years Treasurer of the University of Georgia. He served both as Speaker of the House and President of the Senate, and was a member of the Secession Convention in 1861.

      He was married first to Lucy Harvie, April 20, 1819, and a second time to Mrs. Maria Cook, July 23, 1861. His death occurring January 25, 1866, was sudden and painless. He had concluded prayers with his family and a few minutes later his wife, going to call him to breakfast, found him sitting in his chair, with his Bible in his hands, dead.

      From http://www.arches.uga.edu/~mgagnon/students/Rolfe.htm

      Asbury Hull was one of the first residents to light his home entirely by gas lights. Hull's home had approximately 18 lamps installed along with a meter for measuring consumption. The Southern Banner described the event by saying "his house was beautifully lighted up a few evenings since, with as brilliant lights as we ever witnessed."
