    In 1880, It appears that Pearson is living with his brother Elias, along with two other brothers.  His name is unreadable here.  The person matching age most closely with Pearson in 1870 has a partially faded name that appears to begin with Jef, matching the initial J in 1870.

    A Mullins researcher has told me that Brantley Mullins wrote his brother's name as Mc Pierson.

    "Doctor Brantley Mullen in his eastern cherokee application stated his brothers names were:  Christopher Columbus Mullins, Elias Mullow Mullins, Mc Pierson B. Mullins, and that he had no sisters."
    --  Charlotte Linn Claborn, Message on this genealogy,

    A genealogy containing credible detail and documentation reports this person's name as Mack Pearson Mullins.

    Mack Pearson Mullins
    Birth 1856 in Georgia
    Death 24 Mar 1942 in Cartersville, Bartow, Georgia
    Green D Mullins 1831-1894
    Elizabeth J Caldwell 1833-1868
    Spouse Willie S Dollar [1920 census has it clearly as Willie A]
    Birth abt 1862 in Georgia
    Death 1935 in Cartersville, Bartow, Georgia (no marriage date given)
    --  Rushing/Bohannon,

    His name on his marriage record was Pierce M Mulins.  This is interpreted by some genealogists as meaning two given names, Pierce Mack Mullins.

    Georgia, Marriage Records From Select Counties, 1828-1978
    Willie S Dollar, Female
    Pierce M Mullins, Male
    Marriage 4 August 1881 Floyd County, Georgia, USA
    Ceremony by Gabriel Jones, JP
    Recorded 23 September 1881 Floyd County Marriage Book, p 374, Record #1153

    The birth date given here is later than that yielded by the age in the 1860 and 1870 census.  The 1920 census is closer to the date given in the Rushing information.

    Next door appears to be Mack's son Jefferson Mullins and his family, and in Jefferson's household another son Fred Mullins.

    Age 86 years [est year of birth 1856]
    White Male

    The difference in age and thus birth year here originally made me wonder if Mack P Mullins is really the same person as Pearson Mullins, son of Green D Mullins.  But the additional information about the form of his name Mc Pierson leads me to think we should, as often necessary, ignore the census ages.  The 1870 entry could have been a simple handwritten error, writing only the 9 of 19.  I can't account for the J/Jef or the B reported by his brother Brantley.
