Notes

  • Several sources say that there is a family tradition that Elvira waspart Cherokee Indian from NC.  A descendant Mike Wilson reports thatthere are indications, though not specific evidence, that her motherwas a full-blood Cherokee.

    I originally learned this name as Mary Elvira, and found it that wayin the first genealogy I saw.  However, some census entries have heras Elvira M.  Most genealogy and family sources refer to her asElvira.  The 1850 census lists her as Elvira M Mullins.  The 1860census has E Mary.  This seems to confirm the order of her names.  Butthe 1900 census have Mary E.

    Mike Taylor, a direct descendant and thorough Mullins researcher, hastold me the family knows her name as Mary Elvira.  Her nickname wasVera.

    ------------

    "Her given name was Mary Elvira "Vera" Bailey.  She went by "Vera".She was my GG Grandmother.  Several veteran benefits documents has heras Mary Elvira both inside the document and where she signed.  Also mymom understood her name to be Mary Elvira as told by her mom.  Nograve has ever been located for her or for George Ross, her husband."

    ------------

    The 1870 census spells her name Evira.  1880 has Elvira. George andElvira were enumerated in the Truckwheel District of Pickens County,Georgia.

    In the 1880 census George Ross and Elvira are in the same householdwith their son Sanford Giffin Mullins in Bosque County, Texas.  Theymoved to Texas with Giffin and his family about 1875-6.

    In 1900, Widowed Mary is living in the household of her grandsonLindsey Carr Mullins in Choctaw Nation, Indian Territory.  She islisted here as Mary E, which would seem to indicate the name MaryElvira, though other sources seem to indicate the name order wasElvira Mary, as in 1880.  Lindsey is the son of Sanford GiffinMullins.
