  • Matthew and Dorothy (Dorothea) moved from South Carolina to Alabama then on to Arkansas.  Most genealogies have only one child, a son, Franklin W Mullinax.  The middle name was William.  Some sources have the name as William Franklin and others as William Franklin.  I am informed by Sarah Mullennix that the family descendants list the name as William Franklin.

    In Alabama in 1860, we find William in the same household with his parents, serving as a public school teacher.  With him is his wife Lydia, called Liddy, but listed in the census as Liddo O Mullinax, age 18.  This is Lydia Obedience Autry.  She was born in Tennessee, according to this census entry, but Sarah Mullinix, a researcher of the Mullinax lineage, informs me that she was born in Mississippi.

    Liddo O Mullinax  18 TN

    William F is their son (listed as Franklin W in 1850), with his wife Liddy (Lydia Obedience Obedience Autry).

    Both Matthew and his wife Dorothy died not long after moving from Alabama to Arkansas.  They moved sometime after the census in 1860.  Dorothy died 25 October 1862 and Matthew 3 September 1864.
