Notes for John Gaines MULLINNIX

They are right next door to Jared Evatt and wife Margarett Bush Gaines Evatt,
Hse/Fam #48

The death certificate of Malinda J Mullinax reports the name of her father as
William Mullinax.  This appears to be an error on the part of the informant T
F Evatt, who seems to be Malinda's son Thomas, or the medical examiner. 
Otherwise I have seen no sources referring to John as William.  In the 1880
census, there is a 45-year-old William Mullinax next door to John A Mullinax,
son of John G.  John G is a widower in the home of his son John Augustus.

Notes for John S MULLINNIX

The World Family Tree Pedigree 32832 lists this person as John Mullinix, Jr,
and his father as John Mullinix, Sr.  From previous sources I have the middle
initial as S, and the last name spelled as Mullinax.  Thus this son is listed
here as John S Mullinix (keeping the spelling of the family name in the source
genealogy for the son), as is his father.

Three other children in this family are listed in the Old Pendleton District
Genealogy.  Matthew (no birth date given), Mary A (born 1826) and Sarah (born

One Mullinax genealogy lists them as John S Mullinax, but does not cite a
source.  Most sources lack any middle initial for John and his son.  Sarah
Mullinix mentioned in correspondence on this question that she has not found
any original documents that show any middle initial for either of these.

in this family.  I have included just those shown in order to indicate the
family ties to other families in their region.

Notes for Alford Martin MULLINS

His name appears in various records and sources as Alfred or Alford.  It
appears that Alford was the original spelling.

Mullins, Alfred M  W M 7 GA GA GA

In the 1930 census, an entry that matches Alford Martin appears under the name
of Matt A.  No child of this family is found named Matt in separate family
sources.  It appears that this Matt A is the child of Martin Burton Mullins
known as Alford Martin.  Perhaps the enumerator took the nickname Mart as

Alford Martin's gravestone actually has his name as simply Matt Mullins.  So
maybe this wa s nickname he developed along the way.  He and Nannie are buried
in the Wannette cemetery along with several other Mullinses, including Matt's
mother Thalia Forrester Mullins.  Incidentally, Thalia's full name on her
grave is Thalia Anne Mullins.  Her middle name is spelled Ann in other

Dorothy Mullinnix reports that Ross Benjamin had a second wife, Mary, maiden
name unknown.  She lists no children from this marriage.

I found some of the names in your family tree listed in an old Bible in my
possession.  The front page of the Bible shows that it belongs to Fannie
Mullins.  The Marriage page in the middle of the Bible shows that Fannie Smith
married Ben R Mullins on January 21, 1906.  Both are from Lula, Oklahoma.

My Grandpa Mullins is Fannie and Ben R Mullins oldest son.  His name is George
Ross Mullins.  The Bible shows that Fannie and Ben had 9 children; three of
the names match those on your family tree, Ben Junior "BJ," Sherman and Leon. 
The Bible also provides birth dates of all children and marriage dates of 6 of
the children.

I told my dad, David Mullins, about the Bible in my possession and your family

Dorothy Mullinnix provides the names of the children of Ross Benjamin and
Francis Arizona Mullins.  She has no dates or places of birth:

Dorothy Mullinix, in her Mullinix Files, has the place of death of Ben as
Texas.  Several genealogies have copied this, but his death record was found
in Glendale, Maricopa County, Arizona (borders Phoenix).  Florence Lynch has
posted his and Fannie's memorials on Find a Grave with the same photo of their

It is likely the full name of this child was Elizabeth.  Both Betty and Betsy

both a nickname for Elizabeth and used as a primary name.

Notes for Christopher Columbus MULLINS

In the 1860 census, C C Mullins is listed as Christopher C Mullins.  In 1870 he
is listed as Columbus C Mullins.

Putting the two forms of Green's son's name together, it seems to be that he
is Christopher Columbus Mullins, which is reported by some sources.  Jane
would be Green's 2nd wife.  It is thought that Elizabeth Caldwell Green,
mother of Green's children in these two censuses, died in of before 1868.

In the 1880 census, I found Christopher living in the household of his brother
Elias and his wife Samantha.  Two others brothers are also living in the
household.  Names are largely illegible, and one brother's name cannot be made
out.  But ages match closely with children in the previous census.
