I am stuck trying to get beyond John Hewlett, Jr. of NC.
He was b. Feb 1806 and d. 21 Apr 1888. I seem to have hit a brick wall
concerning any of my ancestors beyond him.

Any help will be appreciated!

Les, I think the John Hulet that you are searching for is the same John Hulet in my
line, that was born in Orange Co, NC and moved to Wilmington, NC. I have alot of info on this family. Tried to make contact with Crockett Howlett's (deceased) family through Ann Hutteman, but lost contact. We are related! Contact me.

Nancy, you may be an answer to my prayers!!! I have been so discouraged trying to find any more about John and his sister, Martha, beyond that which was in Crockett's book. I just met my cousin, Ann Hutteman, about a month ago while we were visiting Wilmington. At the time she did not have an email address but she now has one. mailto:hutteman@bellsouth.net

Have you posted the info on the internet anywhere? I'd sure like to see who you have!

Les, you might forward my email to Ann.
I have a website with Familytreemaker. It is in the User pages. I have not updated it or added to it since I put it on the web 2 years ago and there are several changes.
It has been a long tedious but interesting hobby. I still haven't much to go on. One cousin here in AR thinks our ancestor's first name was H. something, but I found a
marriage bond that gives a Jackson Hulet as a withness for the marriage of his sister Deesey/Diappy to Lucy Jane Bird's brother James Johnson Bird in Orange Co, NC. I haven't found out what happened to Jackson nor what happed to this H. person. You might also tell Ann, that the John Hulet that was here, is listed as the son of William Hulet, and this John is the father of John, Samuel and Suzanne Hulet. Don't know what became of the rest of his children, but do know that the daughter of the Wilmington John Hulet, (married a Mr. Vail) she died in Orange Co. while visiting cousins. Strange connection?
you can email me direct briteyes@ipa.net

Addison Hewlett was our family attourney for years he did pass around 15 years ago but dated my mother in school. They went to Tillston . I do know he had a big family and sisters as my mother was friends with one. She has passed as well so that is all I can remember. SincerelyAlice Bozeman

Thanks for the info on Addison. I remember him as well (he was my father's first cousin). Addison was very well-liked and served as North Carolina Speaker of the House at one point. His wife was Crockette Hewlett - the author of "Between the Creeks" - the book that got me started in genealogy. Unfortunately, her book and my own efforts have come up short about where John Hewlett and his sister, Martha, originated from. They seem to be the first Hewletts to arrive in Wilmington, NC.

They may have been the first but with the counties being changed about three times in this era, they might have come from Carteret county or there were a few(not many) in Brunswick Cemetery records. Does anyone know what their trade was. . Of course Brunswick is loaded with my Hewett relatives. Marine type things were the usual trades.Boat building,nets,and moving by boat. Blanch Thompson,my second cousin has written a book on the Hewitt up line hre phone # is 910-452-3404. She is in her 80's and is hard of hearing but would probably be a good resource.I have been seeking my birth family for 38 years in the Brunswick and New Hanover area. Alice

The Hewitts of neighboring Brunswick County seem to be a totally different family from the Hewletts across the river. Also, New Hanover County went from being one of NC's oldest and largest counties to the second smallest in land area of the 100 in the state. Makes you wonder what the thinking was back then.
