I have kept the spelling of Mary's last name, and her siblings, form the original sources where I got the name and primary information. You will see the common variations Mullinax and Mullinix in this generation. In 1880, Mary and her sister Rose, along with their widowed father, are living with their brother John Augustus Mullinax. 1880 Federal Census, Anderson County, South Carolina, 3 June, Garvin Township, District 27, page 6, Hse/Fam #48 Mullinax, John W M 28 Farmer SC SC SC Mullinax, Eliza W F 25 Wife Keeping House SC SC SC Mullinax, Cornelia W F 6 Dau At School SC SC SC Mullinax, Etta W M 4 Dau At Home SC SC SC Mullinax, Leland W M 11mos born July Son At Home SC SC SC Mullinax, John W M 61 Father Widowed At Home SC SC SC Mullinax, Mary W F 26 Sister Single Keeping House SC SC SC Mullinax, Rose W F 24 Sister Single Keeping House SC SC SC
One source in One World Tree (Ancestry.com) reports this person as the daughter of William and Sarah Mullinax, but with the last name of Mullins. It is not clear what this should indicate. it is true that the name Mullins and Mullinax are forms of the same name, Mullins lacking the Celtic ending. But these names are normally found in separate family lineages. I do not know why this daughter would be surnamed Mullins. Perhaps this was just an inadvertent error that this researcher did not catch in editing.

Mat's real name is reported in genealogies as Matison (not Madison) A Mullinax. he was called "Mat" for short, which is sometimes seen written as Matt. And one census records his name as Madison instead of Matison. Originally I thought his wife was Louisa Forrester, since Mat and his wife Louisa are living three doors away from Louisa's mother Zenith (Barnes) Forrester. But other sources led me to determine that Mat's wife was Louisa Jane Jordan. Family genealogies provide more details abotu Matt and his family.

This Matthew may be in the wrong place. He appears in some sources, but the birth date is the same year as John S Mullinax, another child in this family in some genealogies. The dates of birth are uncertain estimates. I have done some critical comparisons of sources and various persons named Matthew, but have not worked this out yet.
Matthew and Dorothy (Dorothea) moved from South Carolina to Alabama then on to Arkansas. Most genealogies have only one child, a son, Franklin W Mullinax. The middle name was William. Some sources have the name as William Franklin and others as William Franklin. I am informed by Sarah Mullennix that the family descendants list the name as William Franklin. In Alabama in 1860, we find William in the same household with his parents, serving as a public school teacher. With him is his wife Lydia, called Liddy, but listed in the census as Liddo O Mullinax, age 18. This is Lydia Obedience Autry. She was born in Tennessee, according to this census entry, but Sarah Mullinix, a researcher of the Mullinax lineage, informs me that she was born in Mississippi. 1850 Federal Census, Franklin County, Alabama, 17 December, District 6, page 72, Hse #572, Fam #512 Matthew Mullinax 48 M Farmer SC Dorotha Mullinax 48 SC (makes birth seem to be in 1802) Franklin W Mullinax 18 M Farmer SC 1860 Federal Census, Franklin County, Alabama, 13-14 September, Eastern Subdivision, PO Frankfort, page 80-81, Hse #580, Fam #583 Mathew Mullinax 58 M Farmer SC Dorothy C Mullinax 61 SC (C seems to be for maiden name Canada) [b abt 1799] Wm F Mullinax 26 M Farmer SC Public School Teacher Liddo O Mullinax 18 TN William F is their son (listed as Franklin W in 1850), with his wife Liddy (Lydia Obedience Obedience Autry). Both Matthew and his wife Dorothy died not long after moving from Alabama to Arkansas. They moved sometime after the census in 1860. Dorothy died 25 October 1862 and Matthew 3 September 1864.

The source from Allcensus gives the birth date of 1780 for Rachel. The birth date in other sources I have seen is 1785. Interestingly, the Allcensus list for this family also lists two additional children with no name. The birth date on the second of these is 1785, the date I used for Rachel from another source.

He joined the 36th Regiments Georgia Volunteer Infantry, Company L (Pickens County, GA.) along with three of his brothers James J., Benson J., and Marion Francis and Robert's brother-in-law John McIntyre. They assembled in Dalton, GA. during the winter of 1861-1862. Their Company served first in Tennessee, then Mississippi where it was part of T.H. Taylor's Brigade, Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana. It fought at Champion's Hill and Vicksburg, where it surrendered July 4, 1863. After being exchanged (an unusual event of more modern day wars) the Regiment was brigaded under General Cummings and fought with the Army of Tennessee from Chattanooga to Nashville, The Atlanta Georgia Campaign and the Carolina's Campaign. In January 1865 it was consolidated with the 56th Georgia Regiment. As originally organized, the Regiment had 930 men. It suffered 43 casualties at Chattanooga and reported 267 men and 213 arms in December of 1863. When it consolidated (in which the three brothers had rejoined after surrender at Vicksburg) 232 men were present for duty. Only a handful of the men surrendered on April 26, 1865.

Birthplace of both parents of Augustus L West is reported by the 1880 Pickens County, Georgia, Census, to be SOUTH Carolina. The 1870 census entry for Sarah reports North Carolina as her birthplace.

Mike Taylor reports the birth date of Sarah J Mullinax as 24 November 1850. But she is recorded in the 1850 census, which was taken on 7 September. The census date was 1 September, so she could have been born no later than 31 July 1850, to have passed her first month by 1 September. 1850 Federal Census, Cleveland County, North Carolina, 7 September, page 163, Hse/Fam #673 Mullinax, Bryson 38 M W Farmer $200 Real Estate b NC Mullinax, Sarah 35 F W b NC Mullinax, Sarah 1 month F W b NC 1860 Federal Census, Cleveland County, North Carolina, 26 July, p 89 (scan 424), No PO given, Hse/Fam #277 Bryson Mullinax 46 M Farmer $1000 Real Estate $1020 Personal b North Carolina [born abt 1814] Sarah Mullinax 45 F North Carolina [born abt 1825] Sarah C Mullinax 10 F North Carolina [born abt 1850] In 1870, her age is reported as 19.
