Martha (Cunningham) Bull

From Ontario Historya reference to Martha, daughter of Daniel and Abigail (Richmond) Cunningham who married Amos Bull. It is thought that Amos's father, Josiah Bull, was a descendant of Governor Henry Bull of Rhode Island. Edward Richmond*, my ancestor, married 2nd, Amy Bull, daughter of the Governor. 

Per FindAGrave, "It is quite certain the Isaac Bull (ancestor of Amos Bull) was not the son of Henry Bull, Colonial Governor of Rhode Island."

Martha's Richmond ancestry:  (Abigail 5, Cyrus 4, John 3, *Edward 2, John 1).
