Notes

  • I originally had reported the birthplace of Elizabeth Mullins' fatheras Georgia, before I had found a name, based on the census informationfrom Elizabeth's entry.  The 1880 census gives place of birth of herfather as Georgia and of her mother as North Carolina.  Entries forGeorge in censuses report his birthplace as South Carolina.

    Ancestry World Tree sources report South Carolina also.  Perhaps theyhave followed the censuses or they may have other information.  Nosource information is included.  Because the other details are socomplete, these trees seem generally reliable.

    I am reporting York District, South Carolina, as birthplace of GeorgeRoss Mullins. The census reports of age-birth year vary, as do thosereported by genealogies.  It seems the closest to match an average ofall the censuses is 1921, reported by the 1860 census.  This censusshows his birthplace as North Carolina, which seems to be an error, asmost sources, including other censuses show birthplace as SouthCarolina, which I am showing in this genealogy.

    In 1850 George and Elvira are in Cherokee County, Georgia.

    In 1860 George Ross and Elvira have moved from Cherokee County,Alabama, to Pickens County, Georgia, the two older girls are off ontheir own and the two boys are still in the home.

    They are living next door to Samuel and Elizabeth (Lizzie) Tatum.George Ross' two brothers James and Green live just a few doors downand are recorded on the same page of the 1860 census.

    One researcher comments:  "He was on the Muster Roll of Pickens CountyMilitia as of March 4, 1862.  However, rumor has it that he actuallyfought for the Union."

    A great-great grandson, Mike Taylor, has also found this in documents. "Did you known that George Ross Mullins fought for the north?  He,two brothers and one son (Martin) were members of a guerrilla unit innorth Georgia fighting the Georgia Home Guard.  In January 1865 theyjoined the 1st Georgia Infantry (USA) and spent the rest of the warguarding the railroad between Atlanta and Chattanooga, Tennessee.  I'msure they were able to see the glow in the sky from the burning ofAtlanta."

    See the notes for George Ross' brother Green D Mullins, for more ontheir role in the Civil War.

    In 1870 we find George Ross and Mary Elvira enumerated in theTruckwheel District of Pickens County, Georgia.

    George Ross and Elvira moved with Sanford Giffin and his family toTexas about 1875-6.  They are in the same  household in the census forBosque County, Texas in 1880.

    1880 Federal Census, Bosque County, Texas, 11 June, District 14, page30B, Hse #267, Family #274
    George R Mullins Age 61 Father b. NC, father b. SC, mother b. SC  [babt 1819]
    Elvira M Mullins Age 62 Mother b. NC, father b. VA, mother b. SC

    Oklahoma Territory had been established at this time but it wasfarther west.  It appears that all my ancestors on all sides in thatera were living in Chickasaw Nation at that time.  Many were in theMarlow area, later Stephens County.  The Tatums, Mullinaxes andMullins settled in the Ada area, later Pontotoc County.

    Mike Taylor reports on the details he found in George's and his wife'sapplications for Civil War pension benefits.  He finds that Georgefirst applied for veteran benefits on 9 April 1892, application number1113702, certificate number 883947, and filed from Indian Territory.His wife filed under the name Mary Elvira (some sources have ElviraMary, which I have used in this genealogy).  She applied for widowbenefits on 23 January 1897, application number 648005 (no certificatenumber).  The attorney of record for Elvira's application was P OFarrell.  These documents provided the date of death of George.
