Null Family

First Generation

Michael Null (1713-1803) appears to be the first member of this family to settle in North Carolina. We now believe that his wife was Elizabeth Kohl. However, we would still like to identify Maria Eve Noll m.n. Schmidt, who died in 1801, age "over 60", and is buried at Shiloh Lutheran. The names of Michael's children and some of his grandchildren come from estate papers, in which his land was divided among his heirs.
