Notes

  • We find Lydia reported in the census of 1850 and 1860.

    1850 Federal Census, Franklin County, Alabama, 17 December, District6, page 72, Hse #572, Fam #512
    Matthew Mullinax  48 M Farmer  SC
    Dorotha Mullinax  48  SC
    Franklin W Mullinax  18 M Farmer  SC

    1850 Federal Census, Madison County, Tennessee, 17 September, District6, page 264
    G W Autry 40 M Farmer born in Georgia
    Lucretia Autry 33 F b Tennessee
    Lydia O Autry 9 F Mississippi [b abt 1841]

    We know from family sources that the full name of her father wasGeorge Washington Autry.  Her mother was Lucretia N, but we do notknow Lucretia's maiden name.

    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)
    Wm F Mullinax 26 M Farmer  SC
    Liddo [Liddy] O Mullinax 18 [wife of William] [b abt 1842]

    There is a discrepancy in the birth date of Lydia based on these ages. In 1850 her age is reported as 9, and in 1860 she is 18.  Bothcensuses are in September, so the way her age was reported orcalculated was different.  We get the exact birth date and otherinformation from family sources.

    In July 2008, Dennis Comer, provided dates and places of Lydia's vitalstatistics where they were missing.

    Sarah Mullennix, in email correspondence in 2007,  had provided theyear of birth.  Dennis Comer, a descendant of Lydia, in an email toOrville Boyd Jenkins, July 2008. provides exact dates on birth anddeath, and place of death:
    Birth 18 December 1841 in Mississippi
    Death 2 March 1913 in Dickens [Dickens County], Texas
    Buried Dickens Cemetery, Dickens County, Texas
    Her parents were ?.

    In 1890, we find Lydia recorded as Lydie O Mullennix.  She appears inthe Veteran's Schedule of the 1890 census, where she is recorded as awidow of veteran William Franklin Mullennix.  The main census for moststates and counties was destroyed by a fire, but the Veteran'sSchedule is informative in some locations.  This schedule does nottell us if Lydie had family members living with her, but we do learnwhere she was living.  She is in Sidney, a town in Comanche County,Texas, where we know from family sources her husband William Franklindied in November 1888.

    Lydie and two sons are enumerated as a separate family in thehousehold of W H Agrio, his wife G C and their daughter Gertrude, whoare in Hse # 212, Family # 231.In 1900,

    In 1910, Lydie is living in Dickens County, Texas, with her daughterSarah Shields and her family.

    1910 Federal Census, Dickens County, Texas, 21 (June?), Precinct 1,District 98, page 11B, Hse # 212, Fam #232

    Note that the birth states of Lydie's parents are now given.  Thiscensus tells us that Sarah Mullennix Shields, at age 44 here, was bornin about 1866.  Lydia died in 1913.  We find that some time betweenthe 1910 and 1920 census, her daughter Sarah and her husband JohnShields moved their family to Tacoma, Washington, where they appear inthe 1920 census.  They are living in Ward 6 of the city of Tacoma, inPierce County, Washington.  That census gives us some middle initialsof the children reported in 1910, as well as listing Sarah as Sarah MShields.

    In the 1890 census, Lydie was listed as the widow of W Mullenix
