Illinois to Marshall Co. Iowa and then to Merna, Ne. He and his wife had custody of their Grandson George Mitchell HULL. Their daughter Martha (Perry) Hull died in Illinois and they took custody of their grandson. The Perry's I am looking for moved to Merna about 1880. My Great Grandfather George Hull was married in Merna in April of 1892. Thankyou for your time and help in this matter. Rick Covic
