Asbury Hull was likely named after Asbury Hull, a resident of Athens GA in the early 1800s. This person is referred to in the book, "The Story of Wilkes County, Georgia" by Eliza A. Bowen, publ. by Clearfield 1997: " The children of Mrs. Eliza Pope Hull, and Mrs. Clifford Alexander Hull of our day (Ms. Bowen lived from 1828-1898) are descended from the Harvies through the marriage of their grandfather Mr. Asbury Hull of Athens with Lucie Harvie."
The Asbury Hull Humphries family appears on FTM WFT CD#1, which traces descendants of Lula Humphries.
William and Dorothy Humphries give Asbury's death date as October 11, 1900. This needs to be checked.
