Family record of George Washington Mullen
WHERE OUR PART OF THE MULLEN FAMILY CAME FROM.
Information taken from all family records, I have been able to find, states.(:)
Our Great Grandfather, Thomas A. Mullen, came to this country, from Cork County,
Ireland. He came with his mother, and Step Father, John Smith, when he was about
ten years old. His mother from (Scotland) had the maiden name of Ross.
They came to Philadelphia, and stayed a while, before coming to Arkansas, where
Thomas A. Mullen met our Great Grandmother, Rebecca Durham, daughter of Grisham
& Catherine Westmoreland Durham, from Georgia, who was Irish too.
While John Smith & the mother of Thomas A. Mullen were in Philadelphia a
son was born to them, named Bo_Bo Smith, who later married a woman known as Aunt
Lucy. And to them was born a boy, named Lacy Smith. And then the Father of
Lacy Smith, died.
Then Bob Durham, the brother of our Great Grandmother, Rebecca Durham Mullen,
married Aunt Lucy. And to them was born a boy named, George Durham. Then Aunt
Lucy died. Then Bob Durham, married a woman known as Aunt Ella, and to them
was born 2 children, named Charley Durham & Rebecca Durham. Rebecca died
as a young girl.
Thomas A. & Rebecca Mullen must have settled here in Lawrence County, Arkansas
about the year 1847 or 1848 as the old Farm is still here, in the Mullen Family.
Most of this taken from the family record of George Washington Mullen, by Earl
