  • The name is also spelled Jonothan, and the surname appears in manysources as Mullineaux.  His father's name is sometimes spelledMulleneaux.

    Names are similar generation to generation, so interpreting thesources is a bit uncertain.  But some genealogies, such as the one Iused from George Moss, have another generation in her, with anotherJonathan Mullineaux as son of Thomas and father of this Jonathan.Dates are missing or uncertain in many sources, so there are someproblems with ages and birth dates.

    Those sources giving a date of birth for Thomas, report the date as1674.  The common date of birth for the first Jonathan(Jonothan/Jonathon) Mullineaux is about 1685, and for the secondJonathan Mullinax 1705.  This puts a bit of a squeeze on the age forfathering.  This makes Thomas a very young father with only 11 yearsbetween his birth and that of the first Jonathan!  So I was uncertainhow to report the birth dates for Thomas.

    There are not enough details available yet to fully resolve thisproblem.  Because of this uncertainty, I have removed the firstJonathan Mullinax from this sequence.  Another possibility is thatthis Thomas Mulleneaux is incorrectly considered the father ofJonathan (born 1705).  The genealogy showing dates for Thomas, alsoindicate that this Thomas Mulleneaux died in Delaware in 1728.  Whilethis is possible, it brings up a question since some sources (followedby many genealogies) say his son and some others named Mullineauxarrived in the colonies in Maryland, as indentured servants (thesources below says "convicts") in 1726.

    This story about the arrival of Jonathan in the colonies as anindentured servant seems to be wrong or refers to a differentJonathan.  I am investigating further sources.  For information, I amincluding below the information from George Moss that is questioned bysome researchers.

    There seems to be an error in some genealogies (usually undocumented)in the positioning of a Jonathan Mullinax, wife of Susanna Greenberryand father of Greenberry Mullinix/Mullinax.  There are severalgenealogies that confuse two lines of Mullinaxes with some makingGreenberry the son of John, son of Jonathan, and others make his theson of Jonathan.

    I have reconstructed the line of that Jonathan and his son Greenberry,which I am reasonably satisfied with.  I worked with clues from aMullinix descendant in the Midwest who was researching theIndiana-Illinois-Missouri Mullinix line from Greenberry.

    The name of Jonathan (born 1705) also appears with variation, as seenin the following documentation from another genealogist.  But his nameis more commonly seen with the more completely Anglicized Americanspelling of Mullinax or Mullinix.
