      James Huddlsey enter on 200 acres of lad in Burke Co., NC on Johns River and Charles Huddlsey entered on the next 200 acres on the same day. Deed from James, Charles, Jr. Adonijah, Jesse and Adler Hudlesley who are referred to as sons and heirs of the " late Charles Hulsey". all residents of Greenville, South Carolina. Date of Deed was 7 June 1793. The land involved was land that Charles Hulsey bought from Thomas Lewis on the 9 March 1790. We can assume that Charles died sometime between 9 March 1790 and 7 June 1793. The deed from Thomas Lewis was to Charles Hudlesley, which together with the spelling in the 1793 deed, creates some confusion as to the early spelling of the name. All Hulsey's signed the 1793 deed with an " X ", which may account for some of the differences in early spelling.

      Jennings Hulsey

      Jennings Hulsa was living in Greenville District, SC in 1790, as were Charles, James, Doney( Dewey?)
      and Audiler, all spelled Hulsa or Hulsea. In 1800, Jennings was enumerated there, aged 26-44, as were Charles, Jessee, of the same age. In 1820, Adley, Adonijab, Adonijab, Sr., Charles(2), Dewey,
      Elijah, Hiram, James, Jesse, Joel, Micajah and William Hulsey were enumerated in Hall County; and Asa in Clark County. Jennings, a Revolutionary soldier, had moved to Henry County, GA, by 1827, when he drew Lee County land granted August 22, 1834. However, between 1827 and 1830, Jennings moved to DeKalb Co., GA. He had sons William, ELi and Green, and several daughters. Eli J. married Charlotte, daughter of Merrell Collier from North Carolina, and their son William H. Hulsey was elected
      mayor of Atlanta in 1868. ( Garrett, Atlanta, vol 1, pps. 34, 801). Others of the family listed in the 1827 lottery were James and Jesse in Hall County, both veterans of the Revolution, who drew respectively land in Carroll and Troup Counties, granted Feb. 18, 1833 and Jan. 12, 1829, Elijah of Hall County, Elijah of Habersham County and Asa of Fayette County. The names Hulce and Hulse, found in Virginia,
      appear to be the same as Hulsea and Hulsey.
