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

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

    Those sources giving a date of birth for Thomas, report the date as 1674.  The common date of birth for the first Jonathan (Jonothan/Jonathon) Mullineaux is about 1685, and for the second Jonathan Mullinax 1705.  This puts a bit of a squeeze on the age for fathering.  This makes Thomas a very young father with only 11 years between his birth and that of the first Jonathan!  So I was uncertain how to report the birth dates for Thomas.

    There are not enough details available yet to fully resolve this problem.  Because of this uncertainty, I have removed the first Jonathan Mullinax from this sequence.  Another possibility is that this Thomas Mulleneaux is incorrectly considered the father of Jonathan (born 1705).  The genealogy showing dates for Thomas, also indicate that this Thomas Mulleneaux died in Delaware in 1728.  While this is possible, it brings up a question since some sources (followed by many genealogies) say his son and some others named Mullineaux arrived in the colonies in Maryland, as indentured servants (the sources below says "convicts") in 1726.

    This story about the arrival of Jonathan in the colonies as an indentured servant seems to be wrong or refers to a different Jonathan.  I am investigating further sources.  For information, I am including below the information from George Moss that is questioned by some researchers.

    There seems to be an error in some genealogies (usually undocumented) in the positioning of a Jonathan Mullinax, wife of Susanna Greenberry and father of Greenberry Mullinix/Mullinax.  There are several genealogies that confuse two lines of Mullinaxes with some making Greenberry the son of John, son of Jonathan, and others make his the son 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 a Mullinix descendant in the Midwest who was researching the Indiana-Illinois-Missouri Mullinix line from Greenberry.

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