WILLIAM H. HULSE, son of Isaac D. and. Catharine W. (Winfield) Hulse, was born in Elmira, N. Y., March 30, 1855.
Isaac D. Hulse was a native of New Jersey, born in 1820. He was a successful teacher for a number of years. From
New Jersey he went to Chemung county, and from there came to this county in 1855 engaging in farming until he entered
a meat market in Waverly kept by Buley & Ellis. After some time had passed the firm became Buley & Murray.
In 1870 Mr. Buley sold to S. W. Miller, and in 1874 or '75 Mr. Murray sold to Frank S. Morley, of Green's Landing,
Pa. Through all these changes of proprietors Mr. Hulse, retained his position and held it at the time of his death
in 1885. Of his seven children two sons and one daughter are living. William H. Hulse attended the schools of East
Waverly, then Factoryville, until he was eight years old, and then went to work on a farm for Lewis Whittaker.
He worked for him "off and on" for six years. His people then moved to the north part of Waverly. From
the time Mr. Hulse was twenty five he was employed for two years as a baker by J. W. Knapp. His attention was then
attractèd to the employment so long followed by his father, and to thoroughly become acquainted with the
business he worked in the market of Miller & Morley for two years, and later one year in that of G. N. Pike,
and for two years longer was with S. W. Miller. He then established a meat business for himself which has profitably
continued to the present. On Christmas day, 1883, Mr. Hulse married Paulina J., daughter of James and Mary J. Bowen.
Her father died when she was quite young, and her mother died in Kansas (where the family home had been for years)
on December 31, 1886. She has one brother living, a stock raiser and farmer, residing in the Indian territory.
