Settlers LVI:  Charles Mullan

and Selected Descendants

 

Authored by Lyle Rockwell with

Research by Lorin “Larry” Pardoe and Mary Mys

Overview

We have started the family history of the parents of Charles Mullan *of Elkland Township, Sullivan County, PA:  Anthony and Martha Beatty McMullan of New York City, NY.   The story progresses from there and eventually moves from Pennsylvania to Iowa.   Charles Mullan’s grandson, also named Charles Mullan, was one of the original settlers of Waterloo, Black Hawk County, Iowa.

Editor's Note: Lyle Rockwell and Larry Pardoe are well established historians of Sullivan County and the families who settled there. The reader can find numerous historical entries, comments, and posted documents and records from Lyle and Larry through this site, by using the available search engine to do so. Mary Mys, a resident of Wisconsin, is a historian of Black Hawk County, Iowa, where Charles Mullan first relocated when he left Pennsylvania. Our site, the Sullivan County Genealogical Web Page is most grateful to these historians once again for their efforts on behalf of recording our posterity. Please direct any comments, suggestions or updates to Bob Sweeney, administrator for this site, and to the authors. You can reach our contributors, respectively, at:

I'm still searching Anthony McMullan's wife, Martha Beatty McMullan. If they were living in New York, New York, Sugar Bush is now in the area of 5th Avenue, etc. This would give more credence to the story.

 

I have their marriage record (New York City Marriages, 1600s-1800s), married 1748, in New York City, New York, New York, and the source listed is "The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record (quarterly), 1888, selected extracts, published by the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, New York, New York, page 148. The passenger list for the "George and Anne" lists:

Martha Beatty, 1729, Pennsylvania; John Beatty, 1729, Pennsylvania; Will? M Beatty; 1729, Pennsylvania; Christiana Beatty 1729 Pennsylvania; Christiana Beatty, son Charles C., Child, 1729; America; Mary Beatty, age 10, 1729 Pennsylvania. Have proof that Martha Beatty's mother was a Christiana Clinton, who married John Beatty and who died on the voyage. The Passenger and Immigration List Index, being the two documents of the Voyage of the "George and Anne" by Col. Charles Clinton confirms this, and it is published on Ancestry. Charles Clinton and wife Elizabeth  chartered a ship from Dublin, the "George and Anne" left the County of Longford, Ireland, for PA 09 May 1729, arriving in America 04 OCT 1729.

* Editor's Note: There is actually some debate about the correct full name of Anthony Charles Mullan. One of our most thoughtful contributors and local historians, Kathy Heilman, raised this issue by e-mail on March 16, 2012. We reproduce her observations here, along with the responses from Larry Pardoe and Lyle Rockwell. The interchange speaks for itself:

Mr. Pardoe:
I just had an opportunity to look at your Mullen page. The work I've done on the Mullens needs some real fine-tuning, so might have errors. I have added and corrected quite a bit in the last couple of years, but haven't shared anything in years. I noted with interest that you use the name Anthony Charles McMullen. I haven't found a source identifying Anthony with a middle name. Is that from family records? I do have a couple of references indicating that Anthony was living for at least up to some of his son's teen years. In a will dated September 28, 1755 and proved October 13, 1755, Newil Harris, a deceased New York merchant, bequeathed to Anthony McMillen of New York, mariner, all of his apparel, except his coarse linen, his quadrant, books and sea instruments; to Charles McMillen, son of Anthony McMillen, his Pinchbeck watch, shoe buckles, knee buckles, a pair of gold buttons and a gold ring; to Martha, wife of Anthony McMillen, 10 pounds.
According to a 1764 New York Mercury, Anthony McMillan and his wife Martha were suing James Lynch. In the court transcript, James Lynch had to make a public apology for scandalous comments he made about Martha, which he admitted were untrue. In widow Martha McMillan's will dated March 29, 1790 and proved May 14, 1790, she left five shillings to her son Charles as his birthright. The rest of Martha's estate-except for 10 pounds-was left to her Beatty nieces and nephews. The 10 pounds was left to Jonathan Cowdrey, Jr., a New York City house painter who was co-executor with her nephew Dr. John Beatty of Princeton, New Jersey.
When I have the opportunity, I'll go over my Mullen material to see what else I have.
Kathy Heilman

***********************************************
Kathy:
I don't know where the middle name "Charles" came from - as I show his name as Anthony McMillan in my tree. I would have to think that Lyle Rockwell added the middle name - from some information other than from me. I see he has a paragraph directly under where he inserted source information from Mary Mys (see above).
In reply to your question where I got my information, I received:"Ancestors of Martha Elizabeth Louella Mullen" from Ken McCarty - this would have been about ten years ago. I don't know if you shared directly with him or if he obtained it from someone else. At the time, we were exchanging our information with Evelyn McCarty Bryan from Picture Rocks so it's possible he might have received it from her - I don't know. (You probably saw my references to your work in some of the Mullan notes? Whenever I used information from your ancestor report I used a source note crediting you with the information.)
About three years ago, Lyle and I were exchanging family information and at the time I had shared the Mullan files I had been putting together. He took that and added what he had been working on and thus the resulting page shown on the Sulllivan County Genealogical Web Page.
You probably already know, but your mother Marion Fetherbay had a brother Glenn who ties into Lyle's Rinebold family and she had sister Florence who married one of my Pardoe family members - thus our interest. That plus the many other inter-family marriages.
Thank you for commenting and also for the added information. Please let me know if I haven't answered everything you were wondering about or if there is anything else I might be able to share with you.
Lorin "Larry" Pardoe

I added the middle name "Charles" from ancestry.com.
Lyle Rockwell

************************************************
Larry and Lyle:
My only concern was I hope what you used was accurate. I like to check and recheck my work to make sure it's accurate before it's shared online. I've done some more work on the Mullens in the last couple of years, but need to seriously look at it before I give it to you. I suppose one of my cousins could have distributed what I gave them earlier. I've known Evelyn for years, but don't think she would have had access to my Mullen files.
I have quite a bit of information on the Clinton/Beatty line and a copy of Record of the Family of Charles Beatty, which gives a different, somewhat humorous twist to the inheritance issue than is in the Streby History and an uncomplimentary look at Martha's personality. The Rev. Charles Beatty was Martha's brother and his children received the bulk of Martha's estate.
Last evening I found the ancestry.com records with the middle name "Charles." I didn't find any documentation for the middle name with those records, so would hesitate to use it.
Aunt Florence was a very special lady. You're probably aware Uncle Glenn died recently; his wife Mary Rinebold Fetherbay is still living. My mother is the last of that generation of Fetherbays.
Once I have an opportunity to look at my files, I will share what I have with you.

HISTORIC HODGE-PODGE, Past and Present Pioneer Makers of

Sullivan County History

That All May Know

"Mullan Family

A pioneer name prominent in the progress of Sullivan County from Revolutionary times to the present day is that of Charles Mullan, founder of the Mullan family. The son of a wealthy sea captain in New York City, Charles McMullan married a country girl and was disinherited by his mother. To retaliate, he changed his name to Mullan and came with his wife and five children into the wilderness, that later became Sullivan County, in 1796. His mode of transportation was an ox cart drawn by two cows. He located in the Elkland forest on land now owned by J. Lyman Snyder.

One of the many hardships endured was four day trips through the woods to Muncy with grain to be ground into flour. Four of the five children were daughters. They married, adding the names of Kilmer, Fleming, Boyle and Hoagland to the family tree. The only son, Charles Mullan Jr., married Elizabeth Hoagland, daughter of the first settler of Fox Township. Their six sons multiplied the name and with their two sisters added the names of Warburton and Dieffenbach; Bedford, Grange and Woodhead to the third generation. John Mullen of this generation was the father of thirteen children – 10 daughters and 3 sons. They brought, by marriage, the names of Brenchley, Yaw, Fawcett, Hottenstein, Higley and Molyneaux into the clan. Henry Melville Mullan, of this generation, married Mary Kline and was the father of Nelson C. Mullan, who is the only representative of the name left in Sullivan County. Nelson C. Mullan was born 1886 and has spent his life in public service carrying jointly with his son, John, the responsibility of farming three farms containing 240 acres and teaching school thirty-five years plus his service in the Department of Soil Conservation for the state for seven years. He graduated from the Westchester State Teachers College and on Dec. 26, 1908, married Laura Seaboldt, Honey Brook, Chester County, bringing to their name a transfusion of new blood. Their six children represent three age groups. A son and two daughters born in the early years, then a lapse of ten years when a daughter arrived and, after six years, a son and daughter. Ill health caused Mr. Mullen to sell most of the farm to Keith McCarty in 1952. Mr. and Mrs. Mullen enjoy well earned rest in their modernized home. He is the only one of his name

residing in the county."

Notes for PHILIP KILMER:

"Egle's Notes and Queries of Pennsylvania" Fourth Series Volume II, page 276 shows that Phillip Kilmer and his wife were of German descent, and came from Marseilles, New York., settling within the bounds of Fox township, in 1816."

1850 Fox Twp., Sullivan Co., PA census shows: Kilmer, Philip, age 77, Farmer, b. NY. (Living with Philip was Anna Kilmer, age 54, b. MA. Appears to be second wife but I am not positive. L.P.

Family Tree Maker Vol 15 Tree #1274 shows Philip b. about 1784.

In an email message from June (Rowe) Howard on October 11, 2003 she shows Philip was b. March 12, 1772 and d. January 27, 1853.

Elaine Frey of Canton, PA is another voluntary contributor with a sense of historical preservation. We began a dialogue on another Web site and she offered to provide various remote cemetery listings to our site. In her own words:

"The Porter Cemetery is 1.8 miles northwest of Shunk. North of L.R. 56031, it is on the Moody farm. There are approximately 14 fieldstones visible. One of these has the number 19 on it. Another one lying in the woods has the number 17 on it. The main stone is that of JOHN WILCOX, Born 1756, Died 1860. PVT NY Militia - Rev. War. Another field stone with marker says - "War of 1812 U.S. Veteran". Yet another stone says "veteran 1812 - 1814" There is a "P. K." stone with "In Memory of Philip Kilmer" On the left side of that stone is another marked "B.K." On the right side is a stone labeled: "Bertha Daughter of ?? K?mer". I could not read the rest. I don't know why this is called the Porter Cemetery. It's another example of what time does to destroy history. Probably lots of people are buried there, but nothing to tell us how many, or who. Due to John Wilcox being there, it is now kept up. The Wilcox family can probably be thanked for this."

1880 Fox Twp., Sullivan Co., PA census shows a Edward Kilmer, age 26, b. NY, parents b. NY, with wife Adaline, age 22, b. NY and two daughters Maryetta age 5, b. NY and Cory E. age 2, b. NY. I could not tie them back to Philip, but maybe someone will be able to find a connection someday. L.P.

In 1825 Charles Mullen erected, at his own expense, in Elkland, a house to be used for school, scientific and religious purposes, which was for many years the central place for religious and educational gatherings in that township.

 

The first twelve families were each granted 150 acres of land free upon the following conditions: First, that they would within one year build a substantial log house, completely clear(,) fence and improve ten acres in five years. Only one family to settle on a tract (400 acres of land) and they were to have the privilege of purchasing the remainder of the tract at $2.50 per acre. Hence settlers soon located at some distance from each other. Lands were taken up prior to 1806 by Joel McCarty west of the Quaker meeting house, and by Francis Ball and Charles Mullin on the east. The McCarty homestead is owned by Joseph McCarty. On the Charles Mullin farm is now located the village of Eldredsville. The Bull farm was long the home of Joseph Pardoe and is now owned by Barton Luther. Francis Bull was a carpenter by trade. He married a daughter of Robert Lambert, and they were both very active in advancing religious interests; resided in Elkland for over twenty years and then removed to Liberty Corners, near Monroeton, in Bradford county.

 

Charles Mullin and his son, Charles, are each found among the taxable of 1808. Charles, Jr., married Betsy, a daughter of Joseph Hoagland, and their children were: Joseph, William, Charles, Anthony and John. Hannah married John M. Warburton. Mr. Mullin was a blacksmith by trade and one of the most worthy citizens of the township. He built at his own expense the school house that was long used for church purposes as well as for school. He otherwise aided by personal efforts in sustaining these interests. Three of his sons, Joseph, William and John, settled in the township. Anthony and Charles removed to Iowa. At the time of the organization of the county William Mullin was elected to the office of Recorder of Deeds. He was active in promoting the educational interests of the county. His death occurred when he was about 50 years of age. John Mullin was well known and respected throughout the county and was elected County Commissioner in 1852. He is still living in the township.

 

Charles married Elizabeth "Betsey" HOAGLAND, daughter of Joseph HOAGLAND and Hannah CARPENTER. Elizabeth was born on 1 Oct 1782 in Muncy Township, Lycoming Co., PA. She died on 19 May 1848. She was buried in Mullan-Pardoe-Grange Cemetery, Elkland Township, Sullivan County, PA ..

They had the following children.

+            17    F           i.    Hannah Clara MULLAN was born on 21 Jul 1809. She died on 21 Mar 1897.

+            18    M        ii.    Charles MULLAN III was born on 10 Nov 1811. He died on 27 Aug 1874.

Notes for SUSANNAH MULLAN:

In September 2001, Mike and Debbie Krause transcribed the Pardoe-Mullan Cemetery, Eldredsville, Sullivan County, PA.  They show: "Boyles, Susannah (?), b. January 14, 1780, d. April 29, 1818. Hard to read."

 

Ancestors of Martha Elizabeth Louella Mullen, shows name as Susan Mullen.  Same source shows b. 1801; married Francis Boyle.  I believe that this is the Susannah Boyle buried in Pardoe-Mullan Cemetery.

The children by the first wife were:

   John, of Elkland,

   Hugh, of Elkland,

   Hannah, married John C. Little,

   Martha, died when a young lady

 

Susannah married Francis BOYLES. Francis was born about 1775 in Ireland. He died in Bet 1835-40 in Elkland Township, Sullivan Co., PA.

Census of 1810 Shrewsbury Twp., Lycoming co., PA

Francis Boils (Boyles) shows 2 males in Col. 1 (under 10); 1 male in Col. 2 (10-15); 1 male in Col. 4 (26-44); 1 female in Col. 6 (under 10) and 1 female in Col. 9 (26-44).

Notes for FRANCIS BOYLES:

Ancestors of Martha Elizabeth Louella Mullen shows name as Francis Boyle.

There are three Boyle's children buried in the Pardoe-Mullan Cemetery near Eldredsville, Elkland Twp., Sullivan Co., PA. They are:

Susan Ann Boyles, b. July 28, 1828, d. July 27, 1832

William C. Boyles, b. 1830, d. 1831 (hard to read)

Boyles, - - -, Aged 30 da, d. June 4, 1837, infant son.

I don't know who these children belong to, but "The History of Elkland Township" by George Streby, page 4 shows that Francis and his 2nd wife had three children that died. (Because of this I am adding these three children of Francis and 2nd wife Nancy). L.P. The fact that another son Francis R., died in 1852, there is the possibility that the unnamed child aged 30 days, above, might have been born to John and Avis Boyles. L.P.

"History of Elkland Township" by George Streby, page 4 shows:

"Francis Boyle and brother John, came from Ireland during the Revolutionary War, when they were 18 and 20 years of age, respectively. They located at Shamokin where John remained and his descendants are numerous in Pennsylvania, being frequently known by the name O'Boyle, and holding many prominent positions.

Francis moved his family, consisting of his wife and two sons, John and Hugh, from Shamokin to Elkland township in an ox cart in 1803, locating on the Barnes farm. Mr. Boyle was married twice, his second wife being Nancy Wilcox. The children by the first wife were:

John, of Elkland,

Hugh, of Elkland,

Hannah, married John C. Little,

Martha, died when a young lady,

By the second wife:

Charles, of Elkland township,

Gideon S., of Overton, later of Illinois,

Francis R., died at the age of 30 years,

Three children died in infancy.

John Boyle married Avis King in 1830. She was a daughter of John King. Mr. Boyle located on the farm now owned by his son F. A. Boyle, at Estella, Pa. To Mr. and Mrs. Boyle were born four children:

William W., dec'd, of Estella,

John C., died at the age of 17 years,

Malinda B., married F. B. Glidewell, of Forksville,

F. A., who lives on the homestead.

Notes for HANNAH BOYLES:

I could not link Hanah (Hannah) to Francis Boyles and Susannah Mullen Boyles, but as her date of birth was about 1805 she would fit in as a probable child.

 

"Group Charts - Five Sons of Theophilus Little and Mary Polhemus" by Pj Little shows Hanna Boyles was a third wife of John C. Little.  As Hanah shows in 1850 Forks Twp., as wife of John C. Little, it appears that she was his first wife.

 

1850 Forks Twp., Sullivan Co., PA census shows:  Little, Hanah, age 45, b. PA.

Shows living with Nancy and G. Vroman *^*. She appears to be Hannah Mullen Hoagland, but I am not sure. If she was married in 1806 it can't be the same individual unless census age should be 75 instead of 65?. Or unless Joseph Hoagland was married prior to Hannah Mullen? (If this was the case, who was his first wife and which children would go with each wife?) L.P.

Hannah married Joseph HOAGLAND, son of Joseph HOAGLAND and Hannah CARPENTER, in May 1806 in Langhorne, PA. Joseph was born on 3 Dec 1784 in PA. He died on 24 Mar 1856.

"The Sullivan Review": 29 Dec. 1880 - "Jesse McCarty Sr., died at his home in Elkland on 10th inst (instant), age 79 years."

"The Lancaster Family, page 243" shows date of death as December 11, 1880. "The Lancaster Family", page 243 also shows Jesse and Martha had "no children". But why does newspaper indicate "Sr."???

 

"The Descendants of James Carrell and Sarah Dungan, His Wife", also shows died December 11, 1880, and that they had no children.

 

"A brief record of the origin of the McCarty family, 1690-1790, and a record of Joel and Ellen (Roberts) McCarty and their descendants, 1790-1957", by John K. Heess. Call number 929.273M127h page 42:

"Jesse McCarty, second child of Joel and Ellen (Roberts) McCarty, born February 17, 1802, died Dec. 11, 1880. He married Martha Hoagland. They had no children of their own, but made a home for William H. McCarty after his father, Joseph C. McCarty died. They also made a home for Joseph and Jane Sneel* for a considerable period of time. Jesse and his brother Aaron owned a tract of land, which at that time was mostly wilderness. They divided the land between them. In doing so they drew lots to see which one would have the land situated on the main road. In doing so, Aaron received that position on the road, Jesse's place was down a lane a short distance. They were probably buried in Friends Cemetery at Shunk, Penna." (Both the Old Friends Cemetery at Shunk and the New Friends Cemetery at Elkland do not have stones for either Jesse or Martha).

* Believe this should be Joseph and Angeline (Rundell) Snell. Possibly Angeline went by Jane?

Martha married Christian HAVERLY, son of Daniel HEVERLY and CATHARINA OTT, on 27 Nov 1822. Christian was born on 9 Sep 1800 in , LEHIGH COUNTY, PA. He was christened on 19 Oct 1800 in JORDAN REFORMED, CHURCH. He died on 27 Dec 1860 in Overton, Bradford, PA. He was buried in METHODIST CEM, Overton, PA.

Records of the Jordan Reformed Church, South Whitehall, Whitehall Twp., Lehigh Co., PA:

Christian, son of Daniel & Catharina Haberly *, born 11 Sep 1800, baptized 19 Oct 1800, sponsored by Christian and Susanna Stefen.

 

* Editor’s Note:  Correct spelling variants include Haverly, Haverley and Heverly.

 

Christian moved to Overton, Bradford Co., PA., from Greenwood (Powell), Bradford Co., PA., in 1809 with his parents and siblings. He worked with his father and brothers in breaking up the wilderness and building a farm in the Overton basin. On one occasion, as a young pioneer boy, it fell upon Christian to go in search of the stock. He had only reached a short distance from the clearing, when the dogs came upon a large bear and ran him up a tree. With customary gun in hand, young and timid Christian cautiously moved in not knowing what his prey would be. Discovering a treed bear, Christian assumed a firing position, pulled the trigger and downed the huge beast. However, Christian's father Daniel hearing the frantic barking dogs, and then fearing for the safety of his son, took a second gun and hastened to the spot. Coincidentally he fired his weapon at the very moment his son did. Both balls had penetrated the bear, but neither had produced the desired effect. When the dogs attacked the downed bear, he seized one of them in his powerful claws and began squeezing the life out of the courageous dog. Not wishing to be deprived of his fighter, Daniel took his hunting knife in his hand and attacked the bear. The bear fought desperately while the old hunter gave him several lunges, cutting the bear's vitals away before he would release the dog. The bear was killed and the dog never recovered from his injuries. In 1819, Christian married Miss Hannah Warren of Fox Township, Sullivan County, PA., and began life for himself and his new wife on a tract of land in Overton. He built a log home near a spring just below his father's orchards. Hannah bore Christian one child in 1820, and died the following year in July 1821. In 1822 Christian was remarried to Miss Martha Kilmer. They continued life on the homestead and in 1832 built the first framed barn in Overton. And then again in 1836 the first framed house. Christian was very industrious. He was very liberal in his ideas, enjoyed company, and took special delight in spinning his yarns. His buildings were the neatest and best in the neighborhood. Like his father, he had a fine orchard of cherry and apple trees. He was a man of much pride, inclined to egotism, but was public spirited, and a worthful and highly respected citizen. The home of Christian and Martha was the home for the Methodist preachers to stay when traveling. Both were avid Christians. "Aunt Martha", as she was commonly called, was a very neat housekeeper, and an excellent Christian lady, highly esteemed by all.

A supper was furnished on the occasion, and in the evening a sermon preached.

 

Source: Bradford County Historical Society, Towanda, PA., card file on Heverlys, as follows: "Bradford Republican dated Feb 7, 1889 lists the death of Mrs. Rosina Haverly of Overton, on January 23, 1889, age 86 years & 22 days. She was the wife of the late Henry Haverly." Rosina (Kilmer) Heverly was a devout Christian, kind mother and neighbor. She was the last surviving of the Overton basin pioneers. Rosina has been quoted in Clement F. Heverly's history volumes as saying, "The woods were full of wild beasts, and it was not safe to go from one house to another without a gun. The first hog we had, the bears killed and we were required to go to the "Forks" for another. Log pens were built for the hogs, sheep and calves, which were yarded in the evening to save them from destruction."

 

The following obituary was posted on the Ancestry.com message boards on August 22, 2004 by Tina Pastusic:

"The Sullivan Review January 31, 1889

The last Pioneer Gone

On Wednesday afternoon last (January 23) the tolling bell announced to us that the last of that heroic band that braved the hardships and dangers of the wilderness land of Overton three-quarters of a century ago, had passed from earth. Not only was this octogenarian “mother” the last of these brave men and women whose memories we shall ever cherish with deep feelings of gratitude, but she was the last of the original Heverly family- the pioneer family into Overton.

“Aunt Rosina Heverly,” the subject of this memorial and consort of the late Henry Heverly, was the daughter of Philip and Martha (Mullen) Kilmer. Her birth occurred January 1, 1803, near Albany, N.Y. her parents emigrating to Fox, Sullivan County, Pa, when she was yet a small girl. Here she grew to vigorous womanhood and in the 7th of January 1823 was united in marriage with Henry Heverly, of Overton.

The marriage at the home of the bride’s parents was celebrated according to the customs of these primitive days. A supper, the best that could be prepared from plain materials, was enjoyed by those gathered to witness the occasion. The usual “good wishes,” were extended to the happy couple, and finally in the evening the exercises of that memorable day were closed by the officiating clergyman, Daniel Wilcox, who solemnized the event by a sermon.

The young bride at once accompanied her husband to his wilderness home and began life’s struggles in earnest, taking up their abode in a log house. She was the eighth bride to be brought to the new settlement.

A home in Overton then was not the most pleasurable one. Briefly in her own words: “the woods were full of wild beasts, and it was not safe to go from one house to another without a gun. The first hog we had was killed by the bears, and we were required to go to the “Forks” for another. Log pens were built for the hogs, sheep and calves to save them from destruction.” Thus, surrounded as she was, under all these trying circumstances, she acted her part well in helping to improve and build up the neighborhood.

Soon after her advent into Overton, she with five others met and organized the first Methodist class in this locality. “Their work shall live after the,” and it is our inspiring thought to know that the good work begun by them has been prospered in Overton. “Aunt Rosina” was a very devout Christian. She made a profession in early life and “died in the Lord,” when past her eighty-sixth year.

Many times, before the days of good roads when wagons could not be afforded, she frequently went to Canton, unattended, to attend quarterly meetings.

This good lady survived her husband over seventeen years, having since his demise resided with her son, Chauncey, who with his estimable wife have administered most patiently and lovingly for the wants of ”mother” in her closing years.

Mrs. Heverly was the mother of seven children, all of whom are yet living and all, save one, followed her to the grave on Saturday last, the funeral was largely attended fully a hundred relatives of the deceased being present.

Among the number were several grandchildren and great–grandchildren.

The remains were brought to the M.E. Church at 11 a.m. Reuben Rinebold. Lewis Rinebold, Thomas Strevy, John Strevy, Benj. Houseknecht and Peter Mosier acting as pallbearers.

The funeral obsequies were conducted by Rev. Jos. Merring who preached from Revelations 14-13. He was assisted by Revs. Retan and Wardall.

After the remains were viewed for the last time, they were borne to their final resting place, in the German Reformed Cemetery, and laid beside him whose fortunes she had shared."

 

Rosina married Heinrich "Henry" HEVERLY, son of Daniel HEVERLY and CATHARINA OTT, on 7 Jan 1823 in Fox Township, Sullivan Co., PA. Heinrich was born on 24 Nov 1803 in , LEHIGH COUNTY, PA. He was christened on 29 Dec 1803 in JORDAN REFORMED, CHURCH. He died on 5 Sep 1871 in OVERTON FORKS, Sullivan, PA. He was buried in ST PAUL CEM, Overton, PA.

Records of the Jordan Reformed Church, South Whitehall, Whitehall Twp., Lehigh Co., PA:

Henrich, son of Daniel & Katharina Haberly, born 24 Nov 1803, baptized on 29 Dec 1803, sponsored by Henrich & Elisabeth Schmidt.

 

Henry was a farmer in Overton. His religion was German Reformed. Baptismal records of the Jordan Reformed Church, South Whitehall, Whitehall Twp., Lehigh Co., PA., show the baptismal of Heinrich on Dec. 29, 1803. Baptismal sponsors were Heinrich & Elisabeth Schmidt. Henry Heverly came to Bradford County with his parents in the year 1806, and was only three years old at that time. His father was the first settler in Overton Township. Henry moved to the Overton basin from Greenwood, Bradford Co., OA.(now Powell) with his parents and siblings, in 1809. His boyhood days were spent upon his father's farm. As a lad his father would take him along to retrieve the cows, because he had better hearing and could hear the tinkle of the cow bells. Later he was sent out on his own to retrieve the cows from the woods. On Jan. 7, 1823 he was united in marriage to Miss Rosina Kilmer of Fox, Sullivan Co., PA. The wedding took place at the home of the bride. A supper was furnished, and in the evening a sermon preached. Henry took up lands adjoining his brother Christian, and erected a hewed log home, the first of its type in the neighborhood. Henry and his wife were also the first in the area to enjoy a cook stove. Henry's farm was in Sullivan County, while his brother Christian's was in Bradford County. Henry is remembered for his great strength. He continually won at contests of strength held at local outings. He gave his time to the improvement of his farm, which was one of the best in the neighborhood. He and his wife were two of the original members of the Methodist Society formed in Overton. The Bradford Argus newspaper dated Sep. 21, 1871, Towanda, PA obituary listed his death as follows; "HAVERLY In Forks Twp., Sullivan Co., on the 6th day of September, 1871, Henry Haverly, age 67 yrs., 9 mo., & 2 days. Henry Haverly came to Bradford County with his parents in the year 1806, and was only 3 years old at that time. His father was the first settler in Overton Township. He was buried Sep 7th, in the cemetery at St. Paul's Church." Henry married Rosina Kilmer, daughter of Philip Kilmer and Hannah McMullen, on Jan. 7, 1823 in Forks Twp., Sullivan Co., PA. s

Waterloo – Charles and America (Virden) Mullan and two sons arrived at the present site of Waterloo on June 24, 1846 to join the Hanna and Virden parties. The town was laid out in the fall of 1853 by Virden, a surveyor, who neglected to file the plat. The first name given the town was Prairie Rapids or Prairie Rapids Crossing. In 1850, seven settlers drew up a partition requesting a post office and naming Charles Mullan as postmaster. Mr. Mullan went to Cedar Falls to seek an endorsement from the postmaster there and while there named the town Waterloo. (Various other reasons are given for naming the town Waterloo.) In the spring of 1854 Charles Mullan, with the following landowners laid out the town that became the city of Waterloo: Lewis Hallock, George Hanna, J.H. Brooks, J.R. Pratt, B.M. Cooley and James Virden. The platt was recorded on June 24, 1854.

America Mullan, wife of Charles Mullan, was William Virden’s sister. Mary, wife of George Hanna and Rebecca, wife of George Virden were sisters of John and Samuel Melrose.

Charles Mullan, the enterprising third settler, was born in 1811 in Lycoming county, Pennsylvania, moving to Morgan County, Illinois before coming to join his brothers-in-law, William and James Virden at Prairie Rapids, in June, 1846. Mullan served as the first postmaster, county surveyor, realtor and businessman extraordinaire. He died in 1874

HISTORICAL SCRAPS

 

THE FIRST SETTLERS IN WATERLOO were CHARLES MULLAN and family, who came from Illinois, and reached this point on the 24th of June, 1846. Mr. Mullan entered the farm now owned by the estate, and erected a log house near the present family residence that year. He was the first postmaster in Waterloo, one of the first justices, and the first county surveyor in Blackhawk county. He was identified with nearly all the early enterprises of the town, and died in August, 1874, age 63 years.

 

THE FIRST POST OFFICE in the county was at Cedar Falls, established in the year 1848. Up to 1850 Waterloo had been known as "Prairie Rapids" and "Prairie Rapids Crossing." In that year a petition was circulated asking the establishment of the post office here, and naming CHARLES MULLAN as postmaster. There were seven names to the petition, and we suppose it included abut all the inhabitants of a petitioning age. The question of a name had been talked over by the settlers without any agreement, and when MR. MULLAN took his petition to Cedar Falls to have it endorsed by the postmaster there, he looked through the list of post offices to find a name for the office here. He found Waterloo, was pleased with it, and finding no other office of that name in the state, christened the town then and there, and in due time the papers came on for a post office at Waterloo, Blackhawk county, Iowa. Mr. Mullan had the office at the family residence, then a log house near the present location, and the first year was only troubled with mail once in two weeks. After that the service was increased to weekly.

 

THE FIRST CHILD BORN IN WATERLOO was WILLIAM MULLAN, son of Mr. and Mrs. CHARLES MULLAN, which event occurred on the 2d day of May, 1849.

 

In 1854 HENRY SHERMAN erected a log building on the site of the present Central House, and opened a hotel, adding to the structure from time to time as his business increased. He was a genial, pleasant fellow and kept a fair house, and all the old settlers have plenty of stories to tell about SHERMAN and his hotel.

Charles Mullan, who married America Virden in 1842 in IL. If you look at the Black Hawk County, USGENWEB, you will find that Charles Mullan was one of the original settlers of Black Hawk County, IA, going to that county in 1846, I believe. He was a teacher in IL, etc. He is credited with platting Waterloo, Black Hawk County, IA.  A bronze plaque was put on the original log cabin, and later the plaque was placed on the stick-built home built later, at 122 Falls Ave. The house on Falls Ave. remained in the Charles Mullan family through 1940.

I found two Letters written to Charles Mullan in 1842 when he was living in IL, one from his brother William, and one from father, Charles. In those letters apparently Charles wrote home requesting for assistance in getting surveying instruments, etc. The father procured them and told his son that he would send them. It is with these surveying instruments that he surveyed and laid out the plat map of Waterloo, Black Hawk County, IA.

 

First Surveying Instruments.

The letter from Charles Mullan, sr., to his son, dated Dec. 19, 1842, tells about buying a surveying outfit and sending it, with other things, by a friend from Pennsylvania to Illinois. Again the hard times loom us an annoying factor, and yet the Mullans were probably as well to do as other families. These surveying instruments four years later were brought by young Mullan to Waterloo and were used in doing some of the first surveying ever done in Black Hawk county, and for the platting of the town site. These instruments, after the father's death were kept in the home of a son, the late Judge Charles W. Mullan. The letter from father to son, is as follows:

 

(first letter from father)

Elkland, Penn., Dec. 19, A.D. 1842.

Respected Son: I take this opportunity to send you a few lines, to inform you that we are all well and were much pleased to hear from you, and still more so to hear that you were well.

Jonas Hardy arrived here in safety, and gave me the letter you sent informing me what things you wished me to send to you by him. Tho I cannot possibly send all that you sent for, at present, on account of money being so scarce and hard to get. The lumbering people on Loyalsock have disappointed me on account of lumber having no sale so that they are not able to make sale for their lumber at any price. Therefore I send by Jonas Hardy all the things that I have for you which are your large bible and five small books, and your compass, mathematical instruments, chain and socket, which is all I could possibly get to send to you present by him. I think perhaps that Francis or Gideon Boyles (or some others from these parts) will be coming to that part of the country within a year, and probably next spring, so that I can send you a rifle and the other things by them, if I can purchase them by that time. I do not think it worth while to send many particulars, as I expect Nancy will be able to give you a history of the times more satisfactory than I can in the limits of a letter, if she arrives there in safety. The ground has been covered with snow for four weeks past and is now good sleighing, tho the summer has been very dry, so that we have not cut more than half the hay this season that we commonly do others. And it has been very unhealthy during the summer past, several have died in this part, but nothing in comparison to the numbers that died in Towanda Creek and Troy.

Anthony has got a shop and set up his trade at Monroeton. He has more work than he can do so that he has to hire two or three to work with him. And the rest of your brothers and sisters are all well at present. So no more From your Father,

CHARLES MULLAN, SEN.

 

(second letter from brother William Mullen)

William's letter reads as follows: Elkland, Penn. April 2, 1842.

Dear Brother: I received your letter dated February 1st..25th inst., which gave me the satisfaction to hear from you, but it would be much more satisfactory to see you. I and the rest of our folks enjoy good health at present. I taught school three months in our schoolhouse last winter. I had the largest school that we ever had: on the whole I had nearly 50. I had $15 per month.

Since my school was out I have been making sugar the most of the time, the sugar making is now about finished. There has been a very good season for making sugar.

Last fall there were a great many beech nuts. This winter has been remarkable easy, which made it well for those that got hogs to fat on nuts. There has been scarcely snow enough for sleighing.

Father has sent to the city and get you a Philadelphia patent compass, instrument and chain all complete. He sent by Gordon Mason for the compass. He went out a few days ago and brought them in, but he did not see Mason. Therefore, he does not know the exact price. But I would think that the whole would amount to about $50.

I expect that you are very impatient to know about my coming out this spring or summer. I would have written to you sooner but I had not concluded when I should come: money is so scarce and specially hard to get, and it would be of no use to travel to the west with these bank bills; there is such a row about the banks that it is not safe for a person to keep much of them by, for the banks are all nearly alike.

Anthony left McSmith last winter and I lent him $ 40 to buy his time, before I received your letter. He then came home and went to school. So that I think that I cannot make up money and arrange business to come much before fall.

If you come out to the state of Ohio, this spring with a drove of cattle, certainly you can take time to come home and see the folks. You have been gone now nearly five years. Little did I think when you left that such a length of time should elapse before we should see you again, but the memory still is fresh. And we would be happy at your arrival. I should be glad if you would arrange your business to come without fail; we have looked for your arrival several times but all in vain.

I want you to write to me as soon as you get this and let me know what I ought to bring, &c. &c. Whether I had best to bring a surveyor's compass or not. I have an opportunity of getting one cheap, and I would get it if you think best. I think it is a good one. I have done some surveying with it, and have considerable more to do about home. But still it would be of no use to buy it unless it would be of service for me in the west. I want you to tell me about the price of store goods and matters and things in general and what will be the most necessary things for me to bring.

I want you also to give me a small history how you prosper in the world, what your occupation has been, etc.

One thing I had almost forgotten to tell you, that is, you are missed in the hound killing speculation. There were a great many loafers came up from below to Browns for Browns to assist them. In running the deer from the Elkland some of the people below have had some of their hounds killed before, and Browns got them to join them to chase the deer all from the Elklands. But we were all ready for them-the good work prospered first rate, there were three and four killed in a day. They were all slaughtered without mercy and but few deer killed. They had to give it up for a bad job. My hands are so stiff sugarmaking that I can hardly write, therefore you must excuse for it was done in a hurry. These few lines from your affectionate Brother. WM. MULLAN

You must write to me as soon as you receive this without fail, and make your calculations to come by the time I have mentioned. No more at present. I send my best respects to Wm. and John Hardy and would be glad to hear from them.

OBITUARY of MRS. AMERICA MULLAN

Source: Waterloo Daily Courier: Friday Evening, November 21, 1902: Whole No. 8735, FRONT PAGE

IN FULLNESS OF THE YEARS

Mrs. America Mullan Passes Away at Pomeroy, Aged 85. Pioneer of Waterloo, Settling Here in Summer of 1846. Body to be Brought Back Tomorrow for Interment.

Mrs. America Mullan, mother of Hon. C. W. Mullan, attorney general of Iowa, who, with her husband was the first settler in the present limits of the City of Waterloo, passed away at 3:50 yesterday afternoon, after a short illness of pneumonia, at the home of a son, Marion Mullan, at Pomeroy. She was 85 years old the 24th of last October.

Three weeks ago Mrs. Mullan left for a visit to her sons, three of whom, besides C . W., reside in this state. She first went to Fort Dodge to visit J.W., then to Sioux City to visit H.C. While making the journey from there to Pomeroy last Monday deceased was taken ill on the train with a severe pain in her side. She was so ill when she reached Pomeroy that she had to be carried to her son’s residence. She gradually grew worse, the pneumonia, which had set in, affecting her heart, and she passed away at the hour indicated.

The body will arrive here tomorrow evening. The attorney general will reach here tomorrow morning and until that time no definite arrangements will be made for the funeral.

Mrs. Mullan was the mother of seven children, six of whom survive. One died in infancy. The survivors are Hon. C. W. Mullan of Waterloo, J. W. of Fort Dodge, an Illinois Central passenger engineer; H. C. of Sioux City, a passenger conductor on the Illinois Central; W. H. of Aberdeen, S.D., a postal clerk; Marion of Pomeroy, a jeweler, and Mrs. Lizzie Davison, who has made her home with her mother in the house at the top of the hill on the Cedar Falls road, just northwest of the city, where the family pitched their tent when they arrived in this section June 24, 1846, more than half a century ago. Besides the relatives mentioned in the foregoing, decedent leaves three brothers and two sisters. The brothers are Oscar Virden, living in Waterloo township, James Virden, living in the western part of the state, and Frank Virden, living somewhere in the west. The sisters are Mrs. Martha Bunting of Rock Valley, Ia., and Mrs. Nelson Fancher of Chicago.

There is clustered about such a life as Mrs. Mullan lived such a train of important circumstances that only the heads of chapters, as it were, can be touched in an article like this. Her life, spent as it was, from the tender years of childhood, in pioneering, was rich in the wealth of circumstances that compose the unfolding years.

AMERICA VIRDEN was the daughter of a hardy family whose name has clinging to it only honor, sturdiness of character and indomitable energy. Her father was William Virden, a farmer who was for quite a time a resident of Kentucky. Her mother was Martha Williamson, a woman of strong character embodying to a wonderful degree the graces that ennoble [sic] womanhood. America was the eldest daughter and the second child of these two. She was born Oct. 24, 1817, in Tompkinville [sic], Ky., and when eight years of age her parents, with their large family, moved to Wayne Co., Ill. That was in 1825, before the first locomotive on the American continent was conceived, and the only means of travel w ere by crude craft on the water and "prairie schooners" on the land. The trip from Kentucky at that time to the frontier in Illinois was so impressive in its nature that decedent never forgot it, though she was but a child when it was undertaken. After remaining a few years in Illinois enough people migrated to Wayne county to make possible the opening of a school. This was the first school that Mrs. Mullan ever attended. The house was built of logs, the seats were slabs without backs and the other furniture and appurtenances were within keeping the pioneer life. The school was three miles away to and from which Mrs. Mullan walked each day regardless of weather. Present day students in the public schools will be surprised to learn that the "school master" rang his bell at 8 o’clock in the morning, which was the hour for everybody to be in his place and at his books, and there was no intermission until noon. at 2 in the afternoon school took up again and lasted until 6 in the evening. The school grew in numbers as the country settled up and it was not long until the Methodist church, which closely follows the establishing of school houses, opened services there. A society was formed and meetings were held regularly. Mrs. Mullan, at the age of 4, in 1831, joined this Methodist church, and she was a consistent and faithful member of that denomination up to the time of her death, a period of 71 long years.

On March 24, 1842, decedent was married in Wayne county to Charles Mullan. The husband, in the early days of their married life, taught school, while the wife became expert in the handiwork necessary in those days to the proper conduct of a household of one’s own. She carded the wool, spun it into thread and wove it into cloth for the garments they wore. The lady used to tell with animation how the pride and pleasure of those days were among her most cherished memories. There used to be a keen rivalry among the women of the neighborhood as to who could spin the best, make the best web of cloth or weave into it the most dainty and fanciful designs.

There came a time when Mr. and Mrs. Mullan received news of the opening of that part of Black Hawk county in which Waterloo now lies for settlement. Such cheering reports came to them of its fertility and healthful climate that they determined to seek a new home for themselves and children and accordingly in May, 1846, the family gathered all their worldly possessions in a covered wagon, bid adieu, as they supposed to parents and near and dear ones for the last time, and set out for the land of promise.

The journey required four weeks. The distance was 500 miles. They arrived in Black Hawk county, June 24, 1846, pitching a tent on the hill where the home of deceased now stands and where she lived constantly all the years since then. This hill, in the picturesque beauty of the wilderness, was so pretty and attractive that they determined to make the place their home. There were but two other families then living in the county, the nearest three mile distant. Therese were James Virden, brother of Mrs. Mullan, who had preceded her a year, and Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Hanna. The Indians had not been removed to the recently opened reservation and, regretting they had ceded the land to the government, were smitten and half inclined to be hostile. The young men of the tribe urged open hostilities and counseled the killing of the few white "intruders," but the older men kept them in check, else who knows, but the early pages of the history of Black Hawk county might be red with blood."

The first winter was one of exceptional severity to the hardy pioneers. The nearest trading post and post office was hat Marion, Linn county, 60 miles distant. Mr. Mullan, in the early fall, made a trip to that point for breadstuffs and provisions for the winter, and almost his last cent of money was used in making the necessary purchases. But the cold began early and hung on late in the spring. In the dead of winter the flour got low, and other articles of food were becoming depleted. The neighbors were I the same condition and the only escape from starving was for Mr. Mullan again to visit Marion and buy provisions. The making of the trip through the deep snow through a trackless territory had its horrors, but these paled into significance compared to the dangers besetting the little family while the husband and father was absent. There were two small children then, Charles, jr., and Lizzie. For three weeks the mother and these were alone in the little cabin with Indians besetting them night after night. When darkness came the mother would wrap her little ones in blankets and with a prayer for their safety would place them in their beds, while she remained awake, watchful and silent, with the loaded rifle in easy reach. The self-imposed vigil, prompted by mother love was kept until the lady was almost exhausted. It is easy to imagine that no home-coming could have been fraught with greater joy and thanksgiving than the one that marked the return of Mr. Mullan, not only in the protection that he himself afforded, but in the replenishing of the larder, which had dwindled to hulled corn and milk and these almost gone.

Two days after the family came, or in 1848, a young Methodist minister, Rev. Collins, visited this part of Iowa was the first to hold religious services in the county. His chapel was the Mullan home. He came on horseback from Linn county and though having the general location of the Mullan home in his mind as being near the junction of the Black Hawk with the Cedar, he wandered about for hours one dark night and only reached his destination after being almost famished with hunger and exhausted with fatigue. In 1849 a church society was organized for the Methodists by a Rev. Mr. Johnson, who was working in the interest of the Home Missionary society. This was the first nucleus and beginning of the present First M. E. Church. It was organized with five members, composed of Mr. and Mrs. Hanna, Mr. and Mrs. William Virden and Mrs. Mullan. So Mrs. Mullan’s membership in this church has dated from 1849, or 53 years a member of the same church society.

In 1852 the tide of immigration began to move to this part of Iowa and the county was settled rapidly. Among the others who came to the new goodly land were Mrs. Mullan’s father and mother and brothers and sisters, in 1852, to whom she had said goodbye six years before, expecting it would be the last time she would ever see them again. This meeting was fraught with an outpouring of affection on the part of all concerned that made all rejoice. The father died and was buried here a few years later.

About 1852 the first mail route was established through the county, and Mr. Mullan, senior, was appointed postmaster. The office was in his home. The first ripe made by the carrier did not yield largely in the volume of mail matter. One lone letter composed the contents of the mail bag. Settlers were so few that the volume of business of the post office was not large either. The postal case was an old tin pan that had outlived its usefulness for other purposes, and this was placed near the door where the patrons of the office could "go through" the mail and take out what was addressed to them.

.... Her life was simple. She loved the natural. To her the studied forms of society did not appeal. She felt within herself and family a self-sustaining strength for mind and heart. In her all of the graces of Christian faith were sweetly blended. Her life was a daily example of Christianity. In as simplest, truest, and noblest sense. She was endowed with a rare mind. Even in the latter days of her life after she had passed more than four score years her mind was quick, forceful. Altogether she seemed to reach out and comprehend the many forces of progress about her. She was attached to the home of her earlier days and loved to be on that favored spot where so many years ago she came in the prime of womanhood and established her life home. She was genuine. She was real. In all her ways she evinced a gentleness that is only possible with strong characters. She was kind and loving. She loved to do for others. [Continued on Page Seven.]

[Note: Pomeroy, IA is in Calhoun, County, IA. This article contains pictures of both Charles Mullan and America Virden Mullan. Charles Mullan, Sr. was a very handsome man. Much of the information contained in this obituary appears in a book published about the Pioneers of Waterloo, Black Hawk County, IA.

[Note: Assuming that her birth date is correct, this would make William H. Virden the eldest child [[Civil War]] and America Virden Mullan the second-born child. William H. and first wife Rebecca came to Waterloo prior to Charles and America Virden Mullan, although not by much, along with James Virden, another brother, who was single when he arrived in Waterloo. His age in the 1850 U.S. Census, District No. 11, Black Hawk County, IA, taken on Sept. 23, 1850, is listed as 29, born in KY. His correct birth year should be about 1816. William Virden and Martha Williamson were married 1815 in Lexington, KY; Lexington, KY in Fayette County]

 

America Virden Mullan allowed two of her sons to marry children of her siblings,

which would have made them first cousins. One being Laura Virden, daughter of America's brother, James Virden, who married William Harrison Mullan (first white person born in Waterloo Township, Black Hawk County, IA); and the second being Henry C. MULLAN, who married Mary E. BUNTING, daughter of America Virden Mullan's sister, Martha Virden Bunting, born in Wayne County, IL;. Both William Harrison Mullan and Henry C. Mullan worked for the railroad.

The first 5 members of the Methodist Church in 1847 were Mr. and Mrs. George Hanna, Mr. and Mrs. William Virden, and Mrs. America Mullan. No mention of Charles. Wondering if perhaps Charles stuck to his own faith/religion. I know the Virdens were strict Methodists.

Notes for HARRIET BEDFORD:

From The Sullivan Review: 2 Oct. 1884: "Elkland - The wife of Joseph Mullen (Mullan)? of this place was suddenly stricken with paralysis on the 17th inst. Her recovery is considered very doubtful."

In September 2001, Mike and Debbie Krause did cemetery reading. They show Aged 71y, 2m. I have placed date of birth at March 29, 1818.

 

They had the following children.

              72    F           i.    Isadore Amanda MULLAN was born about 1844.

Notes for ISADORE AMANDA MULLAN:

"Dora"

"History of Sullivan County" by George Streby shows "Dora, married Peter Frye".

1850 census shows name Amanda age 6. 1860 census shows name Amanda J. age 16. 1870

census does not show Amanda, but shows Isadore age 25? Same or not? (Wonder if name might have been Amanda Isadore?)

1910 Ulster Twp., Bradford Co., PA census shows: Fry (or Frye)?, Isadore, head, age 66, b. PA, widow, no children born, no children living, father b. PA, mother b. England. (She and sister Grizella Park living beside each other).

See marriage notes page - shows name as I. A. Mullan

In September 2001, the Mullan-Pardoe Cemetery was transcribed by Mike and Debbie Krause.

They show: "Fry, Isadore A., b. - - - - d. - - - -" No dates were shown by them. I don't know if Isadore is buried in this cemetery or not.

I had been a few months back trying to locate where George might be buried. I was in contact with people in Umatilla County, Oregon. I am not sure that I did get conformation, but it is believed that George is buried next to Alvin in Olney Cemetery, OR. There is someone buried there and the family owned that plot because they had bought both when Alvin died. So (maybe it's my wishful thinking) I am assuming that he is buried there.

HENRY E. FAWCETT

Mr. Fawcett was joined in hymeneal bonds with Arvilla Mullen, a daughter of John and Selena (Woodhead) Mullen, and a descendant of an old and well-established family in Sullivan County. Anthony Mullen, the earliest ancestor of whom there is any record, lived in New York City and was a drummer in the Revolutionary War. He was a sea captain and was finally lost at sea, leaving a very large property in New York City. His son, Charles Mullen, at an early day moved to Sullivan County, Pa., where he was given a tract of fifty acres by Dr. Joseph Priestley as an inducement for him to locate there. He cleared the land and built a log house, the work being greatly facilitated by the use of tools which he was enabled to make, as his trade was that of a blacksmith. He subsequently took up more land, but as he was at a distance of thirty miles from the nearest mill, he finally located on our subject's farm, where he died at the age of sixty-five years. He married Elizabeth Hoagland, and they reared the following children: Hannah; Charles; Joseph; Martha; William; John; and Anthony.

John Mullen, the father of Mrs. Fawcett, was educated in the district schools and in the college of Jersey Shore, in which he took a complete course under Prof. Nehemiah Ross, graduating at the age of twenty-two years. He came into possession of the homestead property, and has since followed farming. He married Selena Woodhead, and the following children were born to them: Almeda, Cecelia, Lettie, Rose, Frank, Lillie, Janie, Arvilla, Melville, Clara, Charles, Luella, and Ada.

Mr. Mullen was born in Elkland township, Sullivan County, March 1, 1821, and is now an honored member of that community.

 

John married Selena WOODHEAD, daughter of Joseph WOODHEAD and Hannah SECKER, in 1844. Selena was born on 12 Oct 1825 in Wakefield, Yorkshire, England. She died on 12 Apr 1913. She was buried in Mullan-Pardoe-Grange Cemetery, Elkland Township, Sullivan County, PA ..

"The Sullivan Review May 8, 1890

Our oldest citizen has stepped off the state of action. John Boyle died Saturday the 3rd inst. from an attack of the grippe. The funeral took place at Estella on the following Monday, internment at the Pardoe cemetery, the funeral was largely attended as the departed was known by almost every person in the western part of the county.

Mr. Boyle was born 1800 and came to the Elklands with his father, Francis Boyle, when he was 2 years old. He has lived here the remainder of his life. In 1830 he was united in marriage to Miss Avis King. His companion though in her eighty-first year, still survives. He hewed from the forest an excellent farm and was always an obliging neighbor and a respected citizen, a true Christian. What more need we say of the departed though dead his work remained, he will not be forgotten til long after this generation has passed away." (Obituary shows

This family by intermarriage are connected with the Warburtons, Peckhams, Shermans, and Tompkinsons, now residing in this county and adjacent townships in Bradford county".

Family Tree Maker Vol 54, Tree #1190 shows Molyneux name misspelled as Molyneaux...This source also shows b. Sullivan County, PA, however this county as originally Lycoming County. Sullivan County was formed from Lycoming County in 1847.

"History of Overton, Bradford County, Pennsylvania, C. F. Heverly"

"The first election in Overton, Bradford County, Pennsylvania, was held March 18, 1853 for the purpose of electing township officers. John Molyneux was elected Judge of Election and as one of five school directors."

Same source:

"Pioneer and Patriot Families of Bradford County, Pennsylvania, C. F. Heverly"

"John Molyneux, whose father, Edward Molyneux, had purchased a tract of land, came in from Sullivan County, Pennsylvania in 1837, and occupied that part of it, where John Clark had made an opening. He cleared land, erected a log house and kept bachelor's hall until 1843, when he married Hannah Heverly. John Molyneux was intensely industrious and cleared and improved nearly his whole farm. He was champion sheep shearer of the neighborhood, and an ardent Methodist. By word or deed he never injured anyone."

From "The Sullivan Review", August 26, 1897:

"John Molyneux, one of the oldest residents of Sullivan County, died at the residence of W. W. Warburton, in East Forks, August 17, 1897. He was born at Millview April 7, 1815, the oldest child of Edward and Rebecca Molyneux, and was probably the oldest man in the county who was born in the county. He was highly respected and esteemed throughout his long and useful life."

15 May 1884

Dr. John M. HEACOCK was suddenly stricken about 12:30 a.m. the 30th ult, and with no one but his distressed wife and children present, departed ere medical assistance could be obtained. His disease was evidently that of the heart, but as no autopsy was made, the particular cause of his death is not known. He was born in Columbia Co., 18 Sept. 1819. Consequently when he died was 64 years, 7 months and 14 days of age. He married his first wife (Miss Minerva W. STEVENS of Columbia Co.) 19 April 1841; she died 15 April 1847, left no issue. A short time after this, he located in Dushore where he commenced the practice of his chosen profession. He was graduated after a full course by the Pennsylvania Medical College of Philadelphia. On 11 Sept. 1859, he married Miss Hester A. HAVERLY, of Overton, Bradford Co. They have been blessed with 11 children. One son, 8 daughters and the wife survive him. He served in the public offices as county auditor, county treasurer, justice of the peace, school director (which office he held when he died), councilman, overseer of the poor, and held other minor offices. He also filled the office of post-master

Marriage Notes for ANGELINE WARBURTON and REUBEN WILBER:

I received this email from Carol Brotzman on October 1, 2007 which included photo of marriage certificate listed below. It was for sale on Ebay.com:

"Description

This is a marriage certificate dated March 17, 1867 between Rheuben D. Wilber and Angeline Brown of Fox Sullivan in the state of PA., and witnessed by S. Warburton, Margret Chrisman, another Warburton, I can't read the first name, and Wm. Campbell, J.P. It measures 12" by 15 1/2". It is back by a canvass type paper. Very nice document in nice condition, some age spots."

 

Comments by Larry Pardoe: Of the witnesses, I believe the S. Warburton was probably Angeline's brother Cyrus Sadler Warburton (1845-1912). Margaret Ann Christman (1847-1933) was married to Angeline's brother Alfred J. Warburton (1841-1885). (In the 1930 census Margaret shows married at age 19 which would put her marriage date about 1866. Not sure why Reuben and Angeline's certificate would show Margaret with her maiden name though. Maybe the other Warburton, unreadable, was Alfred?).

 

Angeline married William BROWN, son of Aaron BROWN and Anna LUCE, on 24 May 1855 in Fox Township, Sullivan Co., PA. William was born on 12 Apr 1830 in Fox Township, Sullivan Co., PA. He died on 1 Nov 1859.

The following article was published in "The Sullivan Review", Dushore, PA, July 16, 2008, page 5:

 

Under "Touring Sullivan County's Museum....While Dusting"

"As we were searching thru an old family collection ready for compiling, the following transcribed letter was discovered. This comes from the Wilber family of Wheelerville and gives us insight to one family's impressions.

It is dated May 29th, 1867 and addressed to Mr. Rheuben Wilber, Esq., Shunk Post office, Sullivan County, Penna. and originates from Rochester Minnesota.

"Dear Brother & Sister, I improbe the present opportunity in writing to you. I am well and well suited with the country. I think it is one of the finest countrys I ever saw and I am very mutch taken up with the looks of this western country. I have not taken any land yet and don't think I will before fall and where I shall take any I have not desided yet but I intend to find me some land some where in this country. Although there are a great many disadvantages in this country. One is the scarsety of timber. It costes a great deal to get fensing timber and fire

wood that is one of the greatest difficulties that a man nead to be troubled with but I don't think any man nead to be troubled to rase all he wants to eat drink and ware if he will half work but I am not a going to advise any lady to sell out and come here because I like the country because there are thousands that come here and don't like for one moment after they get here. But my advise is to those that have got good homes in old Pennsylvania to stick to them while they live for if they sell out and spend all they have got in getting here and then are not suted they are ruined for ever or least for a great many years and for this reason If a man is not contented he can not work as he would if he was well suted with the country. Well Rheuben it is quite cold and rany to day and the old setlers say it is the coldest and most backward spring they ever saw in Minnesota but how that is I am not able to say but I feal as if I would like to have an over coat on to day but perhps it will be warmer by tomorrow. I hope so at

least. Now I must draw my letter to a close for this time. Give my respects to the old folks and all of the boys and Mat (perhaps Mattie). Tell her I would like to here from her very much. My respects to your self x wife x boys and pleas write soon. Yours Truly, John Wilber."

 

Comments by individual that posted the article:

"There are obviously a lot of spelling mistakes in this and we might mention that at no time did Mr. Wilber use a period (we've injected those) but for 1867 it would appear that he had, for the time, quite a good education. The penmanship (using dip ink and quill) is neat and meticulous with slanting to the right on lined and folded paper.

The envelope measurers 2 3/4 " x 5" and the stamped postage was 3 cents. After reading, doesn't it make you wonder if Mr. Wilber is somewhat apprehensive about a woman coming to Minnesota but at the same time misses Mattie? Often when reading snippets from history, all we can do is speculate.

If you'd like to view the rest of this or any other compiling within YOUR museum, please call 946-5020 or email sullymuseum@chilitech.net or come in for regular hours Thursdays, Fridays or Saturdays from 1 to 5 p.m."

 

Comments by Larry Pardoe regarding "Mat" or Mattie":

I was curious as to who the "Mat" or "Mattie" mentioned in John Wilber's letter to his brother Reuben/Rheuben Wilber might have been. Reuben/Rheuben D. Wilber married Angeline (Warburton) Brown, March 17, 1867, about two months before John wrote his letter. Angeline was the widow of William Brown, who died November

1, 1859. It so happened that Angeline had a younger sister Martha Jane Warburton who was about 25 years old and still unmarried at the time of John Wilber's letter. I do not know if she perhaps went by "Mat" or "Mattie" but this could be a clue. Interestingly, Martha Jane Warburton was wed to John P. Porter later that year on September 2, 1867, so if Martha Jane was John's "Mat" or "Mattie" he ran out of luck. You can follow Martha Jane Warburton and her husband John P. Porter's family by visiting:

PROGRESSIVE MEN OF SOUTHERN IDAHO - Pages 195-7

JOHN P. PORTER - Not only a pioneer of pioneers of Bingham county, Idaho, but also one who fully demonstrated his patriotism and loyalty to his country by serving faithfully as a soldier in the great Civil war, and who is now pleasantly and prosperously located near Blackfoot, Idaho, John P. Porter is certainly entitled to something more than a mere mention in any volume treating of the progressive and representative men of the state. He was born on June 14, 1844, in the rough coal-mining county of Sullivan, Pa., being a son of Latney and

Sophronia (Brown) Porter. The father, a son of William Porter, was born in 1806, in the state of New York, and in early life came to Sullivan county, Pa., then thickly covered with forest, and, being an energetic and public spirited individual, he was not only engaged in extensive farming and lumbering operations, but was prominent in the Whig and Republican parties of his place and period. The mother of our subject was a native of Massachusetts, and she is still living in vigorous mental and physical health at the age of seventy-eight years, on the old Sullivan county homestead, being the mother of twelve children. John P. Porter was reared amid the primitive scenes and occupations connected with the establishment of civilization in the county of his birth, and was but sixteen years of age when the President's message, calling for volunteers to aid in the great struggle of the civil war, flashed over the wires of the country, and with patriotic fervor he at once enlisted, becoming a member of Company B, Fifty-eighth Infantry, serving three most momentous years in the historic Army of the Potomac, one year with the Eighteenth Army Corps, and being in many engagements and bloody battles, among them that historic one of Cold Harbor, and the bloody attack upon Petersburg, where his corps was the first in action and was also the first to plant the Union flag on Fort Harrison after its capture. In this engagement Mr. Porter was in the greatest Danger his whole military life. On June 24th, just at the close of the two hours' time in which the artillery were shelling the works at Petersburg, and while the troops were lying on the ground waiting for the signal to advance, he heard a sound, and, looking up, saw that the Confederates had charged in force and were within twenty feet of him. In the struggle which ensued two Confederates dropped dead at his head and one at his feet, but he escaped uninjured. After his honorable muster-out of service at the close of the war, Mr. Porter returned to Pennsylvania and there conducted farming and lumbering operations until 1869, when he made the first step in his westward course by going to Iowa, thirty months thereafter proceeding to Minnesota, where he remained one winter and then returned to Pennsylvania. Three years later he emigrated to Nebraska for one year's residence, becoming a citizen of Saline for one year, and from that state went to Kansas and after two years started westward across the plains with an ox team and two cows, his destination being Washington Territory.

Upon arriving at the beautiful Blackfoot River in Idaho in July, 1880, he was so pleased with the place and its surroundings, and the opportunities presented, that he here took up a homestead of 160 acres, engaged in farming and stockraising, being the pioneer agriculturist in several departments of that great industry, for he was the first to dig an irrigating ditch, the first to cultivate crops and was among the very first to plant fruit trees on the west side of the Snake River. From the very date of his arrival at this place Mr. Porter has been a forceful factor in everything that tends to the development of this section of the county and has been, as a consequence of his energetic and discriminating efforts, most highly prospered, also gaining and retaining the esteem and confidence of his associates and acquaintances. In the circles of the Republican party he is known as an energetic worker, and he is also prominently connected with the Grand Army of the Republic organization. On September 2, 1867, Mr. Porter married with Miss Martha J. Warburton, also a native of Sullivan county, Pa., and a daughter of John and Hannah (Mullen) Warburton, her father being a native of Liverpool, England, coming to Pennsylvania at the age of eleven years, there passing his entire subsequent life as an energetic business operator and an active Republican politician. Mr. and Mrs. Porter had seven children, of whom Lillian E. and Walter E. are living, and the following are deceased: Estella, who is buried in Pennsylvania; America, who died in Iowa; an infant who passed away in Pennsylvania; Minor, who died in Kansas; Lowell, who is buried at Blackfoot, Idaho. This memoir will be, perhaps, best completed by giving a detailed account of some of the experiences in battle that were the lot of Mr. Porter during his service in the Civil war. They will speak most vividly to the people of the present generation of the perils encountered in the struggle to preserve the integrity of the Union and inculcate lessons of patriotism. The first two years of Mr. Porter's military life were passed in Virginia and North Carolina.

His regiment then moved north and participated in many bloody battles and engagements, among them that of Cold Harbor, where they were encamped on the field. They landed at Fortress Monroe on the morning of (9 Mar 1862) the day when the Monitor and the Merrimac met in their historic encounter. Going to Norfolk, they assisted in the capture of that city. Then they were at Suffolk, where they were quartered for the most part of the winter of 1862-3. In the spring of 1863 they were sent to Newbern and on to Washington, NC, in this latter place

passing the winter of 1863-4. They were assigned to the Eighteenth Army Corps in the spring of 1864, joined General Butler, and were participants in the attack on Richmond which, on account of the dense fog, failed of success. On June 3, 1984, occurred the momentous battle of Cold Harbor, in which they took effective part and Mr. Porter was in great danger. On June 3d, behind the Rebels' breastworks, at break of day a charge was made, and, after being captured twice by the enemy and three times by Northern forces, Mr. Porter was struck twice by

bullets, one on the arm and once on the leg, but not severely injured by either ball. He laid under fire behind the works among the dead from morning until night with his head resting against one dead man's legs, lying across another body, while another's head pressed against his side. On the 14th of June he was again in Petersburg and on June 24th, while on picket duty, between Appomattox and the Waldon Railroad, the Rebel shells played on them for two hours and then the Confederates charged in force. Mr. Porter looking up from the trench discovered the Rebels within twenty feet of him. He fell back, fired his gun at them, and in the struggle that ensued one man dropped dead across his feet, two Rebels dropped over the breastwork close by the head of Mr. Porter, and fired several shots so close to him that he could have pushed his finger into the muzzle of their guns. Later, Mr. Porter was sent to gather up prisoners and was detailed as guard in front of the breastworks. In climbing over the breastworks in fulfillment of his duty, then a very dangerous undertaking, he first put his canteen and haversack over, and, stepping back a few paces, he made a running jump and landed safely on the other side, but at the spot where he went over many bullets struck. Landing in a field of grain, after lying for a few moments he crawled away through the grain and took up his outpost duty, which he safely carried out. On the last day of September, at Fort Harrison, his brother, Miner F. Porter, was so severely injured by a shot that he died that evening. On October 17, 1864, Mr. Porter was mustered out and returned home. Two more brothers, Charles and Daniel, were in service, making four gallant soldiers for the Union from this one family."

Clarissa Porter's mothers name was Sarah, but the age doesn't match. The possibility exists that perhaps Clarissa's father Nathan died (West Hill Cemetery shows Nathan d. 1865), and Sarah married a Warburton.

The birth records of these children were more than likely recorded in this Virden Family Bible. Since Martha Williamson Virden died at the residence of her daughter, America Virden Mullan, it is more than likely that the Family Bible was passed on to America. From there it could have passed to America’s married daughter, Elizabeth DAVISON.

Mrs. E. Davison City's earliest resident, Dead

 

Death comes peacefully as she sleeps; Saw Waterloo's growth from window

 

Mrs. Elizabeth Davison, daughter of Charles Mullan Sr., the first settler in the west section of Waterloo, died in her sleep last night while visiting an old friend, Mrs. M.L. Hewitt, 826 First street west. She was the oldest resident of Waterloo, having come here from Wayne Co., ILL. In July 1846 with her parents when three years old. She was 78 years old last Dec 31.

Mrs. Davison, who spent nearly 75 years of her life in Waterloo in a home at 166 Falls Avenue, attended Mother's Day services at First M.E. Church, of which she was a member. She had frequently visited Mr. Hewitt and accepted an invitation for dinner after the services. The two visited in the afternoon and Mrs. Davison was urged to stay all night and she consented. She was in her usual apparently excellent condition of health. The old friends visited yesterday and Mrs. Davison was urged to remain another night. Mrs. Hewitt says Mrs. Davison was in especially good spirits, when she retired last evening. No sound came from her room in the night and Mrs. Hewitt was shocked when, upon going to her guest's room at 7 a.m. today, she found Mrs. Davison dead. A physician who was called said death had come several hours before.

There was no evidence of a struggle, or even of distress. Apparently the sleep of life had imperceptibly been merged into the sleep of death.

Mrs. Hewitt and Mrs. Davison were alone at home. They had often visited each other. Last autumn, Mrs. Davison spent a week with her friend. They had much in common, both elderly, both interested in the church and both pioneers.

Saw City Grow From Window

For 67 years, Mrs. Davison had lived in the present home. She had slept in the same bedroom all those years, a room in the southeast corner of the second story overlooking first an unbroken expanse of prairie, then the sparse settlement of the town and then the built-in section of the city.

When her parents, Charles and America Mullan, came here in a prairie schooner in the summer of 1846, there was only one other settler, James Virden. He landed on the east side of the river in June of that year. The Mullans settled on the hill at the westerly edge of the tract which later became the incorporated town of Waterloo. It was a picturesque location. At the west the slow waters of Black Creek wended their way along open vistas of open prairie and thru patches of timber. To the north lay the course of the Red Cedar River. Beneath the hill were laid later the tracks of the Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Minnesota Railway. The prairies were aflame with wild flowers. The streams were alive with fish. The nights were made hideous to the childish heart by the sharp bark of the wolf.

ERECTED LOG CABIN

Mrs. Davison's father erected a log cabin on the hill. When Elizabeth was 12 years old he built the present two-story frame house in 1854. Mr. Mullan, with his own hands, hewed most of the hard wood logs for the frame. The doors, window casings and other finishing materials also handmade were hauled from Dubuque and Cedar Rapids. At that time there were no railroads in this section of Iowa.

Mrs. Davison, when a child, slept with her grandmother in the room which she occupied when she died. In the later years of her life, Ray Mullen Davison, her only child with whom she lived, tried to induce his mother to sleep downstairs, but she refused. “It seems more natural to sleep in this room where I have slept for so many years,” she said.

FIRST RELIGIOUS SERVICE

It was in the Mullan home, the original log cabin, that the first religious service in Waterloo was held. The Methodist circuit riders stopped on their arduous rounds among the pioneer settlements for food and shelter at the Mullan home and held services there. Mrs. Davison has been a member of the Methodist Church all her life. In fact, she antedated the church in her religious experiences. It was because the first services were held at the site where her present home is located that Mrs. Davison, during her later years, expressed the wish that when she died, her funeral might be held from the same place. And so it will be held there at 3 p.m. Thursday, the Rev. Frank W. Court, her pastor officiating.

The remains were taken to the Peterson Bros. mortuary this morning, but it will be removed to the old home on 166 Falls Avenue this evening. Burial will be in Elmwood.

Mrs. Davison was married to Benjamin F. Davison about 53 years ago.

BROTHER DIED TWO YEARS AGO

A brother of Mrs. Davison, Judge C.W. Mullan, died two years ago. Her surviving brothers are H.C. Mullan, Sioux City; Marion F. Mullan, Pomeroy; John W. Mullan, Tacoma, Wash.; and William Mullan, Aberdeen, S.D.

A volume might be written about the early experiences of the Mullan family. Mrs. America Mullan, the courageous wife and mother, was almost in daily contact with the Indians. She professed not to be afraid, but her outward demeanor at times did not correctly reflect her real feelings. Mr. Mullan, being a surveyor, was away from home a great deal of time, and this left the mother to guard her young brood. Once when he was gone, an Indian came into the cabin and wanted to buy Elizabeth, the pretty 3-year-old child. He called Elizabeth his “little white papoose.” He poured out a stream of gold pieces from a buckskin bag to tempt the mother, but she spurned it and him. Then the Red Man stalked away sullenly. His demeanor frightened her, but she kept a bold face.

HAD INDIANS AS GUESTS

On another occasion an Indian reached the cabin at dusk and would not leave. So America Mullan gave him a blanket and let him sleep in a corner. That night the mother did not sleep. She kept vigil over Elizabeth and the other children. When the Indian arose in the night to stir the fire, Mrs. Mullan pointed a gun at him and compelled him to lie down. The next morning he made her understand he had a toothache, asked for some red pepper pods, which he boiled, and then drank the liquid. He left after breakfast, saying Mrs. Mullan “was a brave squaw.”

It was in the cabin where Mrs. Davison spent her early childhood that her father established the Post Office. He used an old teapot as the mailbox, placing it near the door where the patrons could step in and deposit or receive their letters.

(This paragraph appeared under her picture at top of page 3)

Mrs. Davison, whose death occurred this morning, had the distinction of being the longest continuous resident of Waterloo. The photograph, from which the accompanying likeness was procured, was taken some 15 years ago, but Mrs. Davison had not greatly changed in appearance in that time, say the relatives and persons who saw her frequently.

 

Elizabeth married Benjamin F. DAVISON about 1869.

Judge Charles W. Mullan, One of Leading Attorneys of Iowa, Died at Rochester Hospital

JUDGE MULLAN DIED THURSDAY AT ROCHESTER—Prominent Attorney, Politician and Judge in District Court, A True Pioneer.

ATTORNEY GENERAL OF IOWA FOR SIX YEARS

Judge Charles W. M Mullan, judge of the district court, died Thursday afternoon at the Mayo Brothers’ hospital in Rochester, Minn. He underwent an operation three weeks ago but his health has been failing since last fall. Judge Mullan was eminent in the state as an attorney and was also prominent in politics, having held positions in the legislature and as state attorney general. He also held the offices of city attorney and county attorney.

Judge Mullan was the only judge in forty years who died while serving a term in this district. From 1901 to 1917 he served as attorney general of the state. In 1913 provision was made by the state legislature for a third judge in this district and Judge Mullan was appointed by Governor Clark. For three years he was county attorney of Black Hawk county, being the first man to hold that position in this county, and he was also one of the early city solicitors. He was actively engaged in practicing law in this city until his appointment to the bench and during that time gained prominence as an attorney. He served one term as president of the state bar association. He was a director of the Iowa Life Insurance company of Waterloo.

Surviving are the widow, Emma Hammond Mullan, and the following children: Charles H. Mullan, Sioux City; Mrs. Francis G. Blair, Des Moines; Alfred W. Mullan, Waterloo, and Mrs. Alice Walker, St. Clair, Mich. Also surviving are the following brothers and sisters: William H. Mullan, Aberdeen, S.D.; H. C. Mullan, Sioux City; M. F. Mullan, Pomeroy; Ia; J. W. Mullan, Tacoma, Wash,; Elizabeth M. Davidson, Waterloo, and two grandchildren. A nephew, R. M. Davidson, 166 Falls avenue, also survives. A sister died in infancy. Mrs. Davidson is the oldest of the family while Judge Mullan was second. Their birthdays came on the same day.

The remains will arrive in this city today and funeral services will be held Sunday.

The deceased was a member of the Elks and Knights Templar, local order. He was affiliated with First Congregational Church of this city. He was also a member of the G. A. R.

The message announcing the death was received in district court yesterday afternoon at 4 o’clock and both courts, presided over by Judge H. R. Boles and Judge G. W. Dunham, were adjourned at once. They will not convene again until Monday morning. Judge W. N. Birdsall also adjourned municipal court until Monday.

Judge Mullan was born in Wayne county, Illinois, Dec. 31, 1845, being the son of Mrs. and Mrs. Charles Mullan. When he was six years of age his parents came to Black Hawk county. He was the second of a family of six children.

Judge Mullan was a true pioneer of the county. When his parents moved here this section of the state was peopled by Indians and white families were few. As a pioneer resident of this city Judge Mullan also was one of the oldest. His residence in Waterloo was commenced when there was no city, his father having built the first house. He often stated that he would enjoy pioneering again.

His life was spent in Waterloo and for the interests of this city and its citizens. No worthy fund for the general good of the public ever went unnoticed by him. He was ever ready to aid in promoting any project that would improve and better the city. He might aptly have been called a loyal friend of every Waterloo citizen and a lover of Waterloo.

Received Honors from Voters of Iowa. Judge Mullan enjoyed a notable career in politics and law. He was admitted to the bar in 1870 and from that time on was one of Black Hawk county’s leading attorneys.

He began his education in the Waterloo public schools and finished a course in Upper Iowa university. He then read law under direction of Judge Orrin Miller. He was married the same year as his admittance to the bar. Six years before his beginning active law practice he enlisted in the 47th Iowa regiment as a private. He served with this regiment until (CONTINUED ON PAGE TWO).

BIO of CHARLES W. MULLAN

Source: Waterloo Times-Tribune, Waterloo, Iowa: Sunday, March 1, 1914, Pg. 32

"Known everywhere as a gentleman of genial temperament and sterling qualities, a fluent public speaker and thoroughly familiar with the development and needs of this section, Judge Mullan is, in all matters of public enterprise, a valuable acquisition to the citizenship of Waterloo. As a jurist, legislator and professional man, he has reflected credit on the state, district and city.

The Mullan family was among the first six settlers in Black Hawk county, moving here in 1846 from Wayne county Illinois. Charles W. Mullan, son of Charles and America Virden Mullan, was only six months old when the family arrived here. He has seen the growth of the county from its earliest days to the present and has had a share in practically all of its growth and development.

He attended public school in Black Hawk county and then entered Upper Iowa University at Fayette.. Enlisted direct from the University during the civil war he served until the end of hostilities and then returned to Fayette where he finished his course, graduating in 1866. Following his graduation he returned to Waterloo and read law with Judge Oran Miller and was admitted to the bar in 1870. In 1872 he married Emma L. Hammond of Waterloo. The union has been blessed with four children, two boys and two girls, all of whom, with the exception of the younger son, are married and settled in life.

After his admission to the bar, Judge Mullan formed a partnership with Judge Miller, under the firm name of Miller & Mullan. Later he became the associate of Joe Elwell in the firm entitled Mullan & Elwell. Following the dissolution of the latter firm the partnership of Mullan & Hoff was formed and existed two years at the end of which time Mr. Hoff passed away and Judge Mullan practiced alone until 1890 when he joined issues with Charles E. Pickett under the firm name of Mullan & Pickett. In 1913, the tenth judicial district, comprising the counties of Delaware, Buchanan, Grundy and Black Hawk, showed such a volume of district court-business that the necessity for another judge became apparent and Mr. Mullan was appointed to the position.

Judge Mullan has served the township, city, county and state in various political positions, having been a member of the school board of Waterloo Township; city attorney for six years, county attorney six years, state senator from 1897 to 1900, and attorney general of Iowa from 1901 to 1907. He is a member of the G. A.R., Chamber of Commerce and Board of Trade, director of the Manufacturer’s Insurance company, and vice-president of the Iowa Life Insurance company. The Mullan family is prominent in Waterloo’s social life and resides at 516 West First avenue.

Ripe in years and in experience, possessing the highest sense of honor and of duty, Judge Mullan is an honor to the legal profession, a decided credit to the bench and a positive benefit to the community."

The Blue Book of Iowa Women 149  MRS. CHARLES W. MULLAN

 

Prominent among the women of Waterloo and one whose history has been closely allied with the city and whose father-in-law surveyed, platted and named that

city, is Mrs. Charles W. Mullan. Emma Lucy Hammond Mullan was born Dec. 15, 1851, in Paris, Oneida County, N. Y. She is the daughter of William Hammond, who came to Waterloo in 1855, and established the first bank and real estate office in that city, and the second bank of the state. Her mother was Frances Chesbro Babcock, a woman of rare beauty and grace of character. She was a gentle woman of the old type, who painted in water colors, did exquisite needle work and read carefully selected literature. She was descended from the historic Perry family. Matthew Calbraith Perry, the American naval officer, who opened commerce with Japan, was her grandfather's brother, as was also Commodore Oliver H. Perry, who

defeated the British in the Battle of Lake Erie. The late Rev. Maltby Babcock, who was pastor of the Brick Presbyterian church of New York, and Edward Noyes Westcott, author of David Harum, were cousins. Kendric C. Babcock, dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences of the University of Illinois, is a cousin. Mrs. Mullen was educated in a seminary conducted by Miss Anna B^ield, of Mt. Holyoke, and a pupil of Mary Lyon. She was married Nov. 6, 1882, to Charles W. Mullen and has four children. Chas. W. Mullen was born Dec. 31, 1845, son of Charles Mullen, one of the first settlers of Black Hawk county, going there in 1846. He surveyed, platted and named the city of Waterloo. He and his wife, a woman of great strength of character, endured many hardships of pioneer life. Their son was educated in the Upper Iowa University, read law with a private tutor and was admitted to the bar in 1870. He served as city solicitor, as county attorney and in 1897 was elected state senator, serving in the 27th and 28th general assemblies. He resigned in 1900 to accept the office of Attorney General, which office he held until 1913, when he was appointed Judge of the Tenth Judicial District, the position he now holds.

 

Mrs. Mullen is a member of the Congregational church, in which she has been an active member since she was thirteen years of age. She is a member of the

Waterloo Woman's Club, the second oldest woman's club in Iowa. She is a charter member of the Fort-nightly Club, a member of the P. E. 0. sisterhood and of the Ladies of the G. A. R. Her life work has been to rear her family, and right well has she accomplished that task. Her oldest son, Charles Hammond, is a graduate of Iowa College, and resides in St. Paul, being department manager of the Minneapolis Dry Goods Co. Her daughter, Frances Gertrude Blair, is a graduate of Iowa College and resides in Des Moines, the wife of Mr. John Blair, First Vice President of the Des Moines National Bank. The third child, Alice May Walker, was also a student at Iowa College, is the wife of Carl R. Walker of St. Clair, Mich., manager of the Diamond Chrystal Salt Co, The younger son, Alfred William, is a graduate of Iowa College and of the law department of the State University of Iowa. He very successfully practiced his profession in Waterloo for several years when because of ill health he temporarily gave up the law and is now in the U. S. Forestry service in New Mexico.

HENRY CLAY MULLAN - OBITUARY

HENRY MULLAN, 76, SON OF WATERLOO PIONEERS, DIES

Born Here in 1850 and Retired on Pension by I. C. at Sioux City

      Henry C. Mullan, son of the late Charles and America Mullan, first settlers of Waterloo, and pensioned Illinois Central conductor, died at his home at Sioux City at 12:20 a.m. today, according to telegrams received by relatives here.  He had been sick of heart trouble for several weeks.

      Surviving are his widow and the following sons: G. H. Mullan, Chicago; H. D., Milwaukee; Paul D., Fort Dodge, Kenneth D., Blair, Neb. Ivan, another son, preceded his father in death.  A brother, Marion, Pomeroy, Ia., is the only surviving child of these pioneers.

      Henry Clay Mullan was born in Waterloo, Nov. 2, 1850.

          Born in Log Cabin.

      Henry Clay Mullan was born in the log cabin erected on the home site on high ground overlooking the Cedar river and Black Hawk Creek in the summer of 1846.  The family arrived on June 24 of that year.  The cabin was located just west of the present frame residence, which was erected in 1853-53, and was the first frame house in Waterloo. Henry Mullan told friends that he has a remembrance of playing with the brick that was used in the foundation of the new home.

      When only a boy Henry began his term of employment with the Illinois Central which was to extend over a period of nearly a half century. He began as a brakeman and was later promoted to conductor.  His run of longest duration was between Fort Dodge and Sioux City, altho he ran several years on the Sioux Falls line.

          Kindly to Passengers.

      Among the most treasured experiences of Mr. Mullan were the greetings of strangers who reminded him of some kindness while they were passengers on his train. His courtliness to elderly passengers and children won him high esteem with the traveling public.  His acquaintanceship was wide all thru western Iowa.

      At the time Henry began working for the railroad, he was obliged to walk in all kinds of weather from his home to the old Illinois Central depot, which was in the present shop district, a distance of two miles. Oftentimes he was forced to wade thru snow waist deep.

      Like other oldtime railroad employees, he saw many changes in locomotives, cars and equipment.  When he began engines were tiny compared to the model moguls and automatic couplers, electric lighting, steam heat and other conveniences and safety devices supplanted the old hand brakes, oil lamps and stoves.

       Funeral in Sioux City

      Mr. Mullan's last visit to Waterloo was at the time of the 1926 reunion of early settlers at Hanna's Grove. He was a member of the Early Settlers' association, was a Knight Templar and a member of the Order of Railway Conductors.

      Funeral services will be in Sioux City and burial there beside his first wife and son.

      Relatives in Waterloo are Mrs. Emma L. Mullan, widow of the late Judge C. W. Mullan, his sister-in-law, 516 First street west; R. M. Davison, nephew, 166 Falls avenue; Alfred W. Mullan, nephew, Cedar Heights, and C. W. Virden, cousin, Waterloo township.

      Mr. and Mrs. Davison plan to leave early tomorrow by automobile for Sioux City to attend the funeral. When in Waterloo for a visit Henry Mullan always made their home his stopping place.

 

Henry married Mary E. BUNTING, daughter of John BUNTING and Martha VIRDEN, on 11 Dec 1881 in Edwards County, Il. Mary was born in Feb 1857 in Albion, Edwards County, IL. She died in 1901/1910 in Iowa. She was buried in Sioux City, Woodbury Co., IA.

HENRY E. FAWCETT, who is extensively engaged in general farming and dairying, is a highly respected citizen of Elkland township, Sullivan County, Pa. He was born on the farm on which he now resides, September 3, 1857, and is a son of John and Phoebe (Bird) Fawcett.

His grandfather was Henry Fawcett, a native of England, who immigrated to America in 1819, locating on the farm now owned by J. Kline, Esq., in Sullivan County, Pa. It was a tract of timberland which had not undergone the improvements which civilization brings. He cleared a piece sufficient in size on which to build a cabin, and after its erection he and his wife lived there the remainder of their lives, working hand in hand, converting a vast wilderness into fields fit for cultivation.

John Fawcett, the father of our subject, was born in England in 1817, and was two years of age when his parents came to this country. His opportunities for obtaining an education were few, but he made the best of them and acquired a good business training. Upon reaching maturity he purchased the farm now owned by our subject, built a good house, and during the remainder of his days followed farming, making great improvements on his property. In the latter years of his life he erected a new and modern home, the one in which Henry E. Fawcett now lives, but it was not entirely completed at his death. He was a man of excellent qualities and always aided those who had been less fortunate in life than he. He passed into the realms of the unknown September 21, 1881, and his death was greatly mourned by a large circle of friends and acquaintances. He married Phoebe Bird, a daughter of George and Sarah (King) Bird, who was born in 1813, and is now living with her son Asa in Elkland township, being a well-preserved woman for her years. The children resulting from this union were:

Philinda, the wife of James Hart; Lydia, the wife of David McCarty; George; Asa, who married Lizzie Schrader; Sarah; Minerva, the wife of Wells McCarty; and Henry E., the subject of this personal history. Mr. Fawcett was a stanch Republican in his political affiliations; in religious views he was a Wesleyan Methodist.

Henry E. Fawcett was reared on his father's farm and educated in the district schools. The happiness and success of his father in the pursuance of agricultural pursuits influenced him in choosing farming as his life's work. He purchased the old homestead, improved it, and at the present time has a fine farm of 160 acres under a high state of cultivation. He is engaged in dairying and raises grain and other farm produce; and for many years he ran a threshing machine and was also engaged in the lumber and bark business. He is a man of good business capacity, and good results have attended his efforts on all sides.

Mr. Fawcett was joined in hymeneal bonds with Arvilla Mullen, a daughter of John and Selena (Woodhead) Mullen, and a descendant of an old and well-established family in Sullivan County. Anthony Mullen, the earliest ancestor of whom there is any record, lived in New York City and was a drummer in the Revolutionary War. He was a sea captain and was finally lost at sea, leaving a very large property in New York City. His son, Charles Mullen, at an early day moved to Sullivan County, Pa., where he was given a tract of fifty acres by Dr. Joseph Priestley as an inducement for him to locate there. He cleared the land and built a log house, the work being greatly facilitated by the use of tools which he was enabled to make, as his trade was that of a blacksmith. He subsequently took up more land, but as he was at a distance of thirty miles from the nearest mill, he finally located on our subject's farm, where he died at the age of sixty-five years. He married Elizabeth Hoagland, and they reared the following children: Hannah; Charles; Joseph; Martha; William; John; and Anthony.

John Mullen, the father of Mrs. Fawcett, was educated in the district schools and in the college of Jersey Shore, in which he took a complete course under Prof. Nehemiah Ross, graduating at the age of twenty-two years. He came into possession of the homestead property, and has since followed farming. He married Selena Woodhead, and the following children were born to them: Almeda, Cecelia, Lettie, Rose, Frank, Lillie, Janie, Arvilla, Melville, Clara, Charles, Luella, and Ada.

Mr. Mullen was born in Elkland township, Sullivan County, March 1, 1821, and is now an honored member of that community.

Mr. and Mrs. Fawcett are the parents of two children: Lee and Lena. Politically Mr. Fawcett is very active and is one of the most popular men in the Republican party in Sullivan County. He was the party nominee for sheriff in 1895 and ran away ahead of his ticket, but was defeated by the small margin of sixty-five votes. He has served as constable, school director, and superintendent of roads. In religious views he is a Wesleyan Methodist, and he and his wife both take an active part in church and Sabbath school work.

 

They had the following children.

            304    M         i.    John Lee FAWCETT was born on 3 Dec 1882. He died on 20 Feb 1931. He was buried in Greenwood Cem., Elkland Twp., Sullivan Co., PA.

Ralph O. Molyneux son of Oscar N. and Ada (Mullen) Molyneux died of kidney disease Monday Sept. 30, 1912. The funeral was held at the home in Forks Township Wednesday at 10 o’clock.

Interment was in the Millview cemetery. Rev. Wilcox of Millview officiated.

Ralph was a very bright loving child of 5 years 9 months 16 days. All that good care and physicians could do proved of no avail.

Just before his death he pointed up toward heaven and said "Going Home". The parents and only sister Florence have the sympathies of a multitude of friends."

"F. A. Boyle

Was born in Elkland township, Aug. 29, 1842. He was a son of John and Avis (King) Boyle, and a grand-son of Francis Boyle, who came from Ireland to America during the Revolutionary war, when 18 years of age, locating first in Shamokin, from where he moved to Elkland township in 1803. F. A. Boyle located on his father's farm near Estella, which he has purchased. He has always taken a very active part in religious and political affairs.

Mr. Boyle married Matilda Williams, Oct. 24, 1868. She was born in Ridgebury township, Bradford county, Oct. 19, 1844. She was a daughter of Henry and Christena (Rightmire) Williams.

Born on her parent’s farm just outside of Shunk June 6, 1914 she was a daughter of Liston and Anna Stull Brown.

On November 7, 1930 at the age of 16 she was united in marriage to her childhood sweetheart, Kermit L. Heess. Together they raised a son and five daughters and operated a dairy farm. They shared nearly 40 years together until Kermit’s passing in 1970. She was well-known for her sewing and crocheting but most of all her cooking. She was always happiest when she had a large crowd to feed. For more years than most folks can remember she ran the dining hall at the Sullivan County Fair. No one ever had to ask her twice about volunteering for this cumbersome task. She served as cook for many years at Camp Brule Scout Reservation and worked as a cook for 15 years at Our House Restaurant south of Canton. Mrs. Heess was a woman of faith, anchored to her Christian convictions. She was a lifetime member of the Lincoln Falls Wesleyan Church and served for many years as secretary of the Sunday school. Surviving are her son and daughter-in-law, Carl and Janet Heess, Shunk; daughters, Shirley Wilson, Forksville, Ella Ruth Ryan, Williamsport, Betty Lou Boxman, Sandra and Dallas Bown, Forksville, 17 grandchildren 21 great-grandchildren, numerous nephews and cousins.

This email was received from Carol Brotzman on October 1, 2007 from a posting of this marriage certificate online at Ebay.com:

"Description

This is a marriage certificate dated March 17, 1867 between Rheuben D. Wilber and Angeline Brown of Fox Sullivan in the state of PA., and witnessed by S. Warburton, Margret Chrisman, another Warburton, I can't read the first name, and Wm. Campbell, J.P. It measures 12" by 15 1/2". It is back by a canvass type paper. Very nice document in nice condition, some age spots."

(Rheuben? or Reuben?. Angeline was Angeline (Warburton) Brown. I believe S. Warburton was probably Cyrus Sadler Warburton. Margaret Christman was married to Angeline's brother Albert Warburton about 1866). L.P.

Subject: [PASULLIV] WILBER - SHAVER Family Marriage Certificate

I've "rescued" an old marriage certificate belonging to Lewis N. WILBER and his bride Lillian H. SHAVER who were married in Hillsgrove, Pennsylvania on the 20th of August 1899. The ceremony was performed by Ezra S. LITTLE, the Justice of the Peace. The certificate was enclosed in an envelope addressed to Ezra S. LITTLE Esq in Hillsgrove, PA with the return address being that of W. J. LAWRENCE, Clerk of the Court in Laporte, PA for Sullivan County.

The name of Lewis N. WILBER is written in pencil on the front as well.

The postmark on the envelope is Apr 18 1899 suggesting that the envelope is actually older than the certificate itself.

Email message from Linda (Ludwig) Mutzer on October 10, 2007 which contained some information she found as well as some information she got from Helen Blow indicates Vernon's middle name "Monroe". Helen indicated that Vernon and wife adopted another child, Edward Wilber who died at a younger age. Linda found Gerald and Edward both buried in Woodlawn National Cemetery in Elmira, NY, but she wasn't sure that they were the same ones that were son and adopted son of Vernon. L.P.

 

This email was from Bob Sweeney, November 24, 2007:

Folks:

I have received and made my first go-over on the Wilber Estate collection. As you may recall, I purchased these items from Helen Blow of Aiken, SC, in lieu of having them sold piecemeal on the Internet. I am still hopeful that we may eventually recover the two wedding photos that were sold before I could get to them. Also, I believe Linda McDonald bought several pictures from this collection that I believe included one of her mom. I plan to ask her to scan them for us as well when she gets the time. Any way, this collection has many remarkable items in it, including old psalm books and letters from the 19th century, the best collection of old postcards I have ever encountered, many old photos [inmost cases labeled!!] and other odds and ends from life in the 1880s through the 1930s in the Elkland area. The families included are Shaver, Wilber, Brown, Beaumont, Lewis, Warburton, Bagley and more. There are a handful of old tintype photos that are not labeled but we may be able to figure out who they are from comparison with labeled photos as well.

There are many, to me at least unique items, such as a soldier’s pay record from the last phase of world war one, many old postage stamps, complete transaction records between the Wilbers and several local businesses, a dialogue and records of transactions involving the sale of sheng [ginseng] and pelts to a NYC distributor, trolley and bus tickets from Elmira, NY, very touching letters about farm life, and the list goes on. My plan is to scan the important items, and take sample scans of the other materials. Then, I will ship the materials to Melly’s attention at the SCHS in Laporte. I will label the groups of items that are in there but leave it up to the museum as to how they want to organize these items. I would guess it will be the end of the year before I can get this Xmas present off to Laporte. Meanwhile, I also recently acquired about a dozen issues of the Gazette and Herald, 1919, Dushore, and will be posting select items from those papers to the message board and our pages. Then, these items as well will be going to the SCHS.

Happy Txgiving, and thanks to all…… Bob"

"ALFRED J. WILBER, 86, Canton, one of the old time railroad men of the area, passed away quietly, January 3, 1997, at the Robert Packer Hospital, Sayre. Born Aug. 21, 1910 in fox Twp., he was one of nine children born to Lewis and Lillian (Shaver) Wilber. Growing up in the forest of Sullivan County, young Alfred was fascinated with railway operations of the lumber companies around Masten and Laquin, as well as the old Susquehanna and New York as it roared through Wheelerville on its run from Ralston to Dushore. When the great depression

swept across our nation, Alfred found employment in the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). He worked diligently in the CCC camps of the Endless Mountains planting trees and repairing roads and bridges. He began a courtship with a young lady from LeRoy named Myrtle E. Kelley, a courtship culminating in their being united in holy matrimony on Jan. 14, 1939. In the 1940’s he secured employment with the PA Railroad as a track inspector along the Elmira branch through Canton. He walked great lengths of the line looking for sign of excessive wear along the rails. He used to collect the little strips of lead which were left behind in the aftermath of a locomotive that had detonated a series of warning signal torpedoes. His sons said they made good weights for fishing. His railroad career often took him away from home to Buffalo. He retired in 1975. The Wilbers were blessed with eight children and shared 49 years together before she died in 1988. Surviving are sons; Elwood and wife, Barbara, Cecil, Lewayne and wife, Marilyn and Gary, all of Canton; daughters, Phyllis Wilber, Canton and Velma and Donald Spencer, Wellsboro; brothers, Walter, Elmira and Walker, Canton; 15 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild. In addition to his wife, he was predeceased by son, Lewis a daughter, Dorothy, three brothers and three sisters. Funeral services were held Jan. 6 at the Morse and Kleese funeral Home, Canton. Interment was in Grover Cemetery. –Canton Independent Sentinel."

*In another email message from Connie (King) LaGrega on January 21, 2004 she indicates birth name was Bertha Mae Kingston and that she was adopted by Cyrus & Adaline Warburton, but when she married into the King family and since there was already a Bertha King, she used her middle name Mae.

Uncle John as I knew him, was a very honest and hard working man. Although he had that rough manly manner about him underneath we all knew he was as soft as a teddy bear. I have many wonderful memories of this loving man. He had a love for the King family history and it was a joy for him to share with anyone that had an interest. The families loss is great. He was the second son of Ralph & Mae (Warburton) King, my father Walter the eldest, Donne King the youngest child is the sole survivor of their eight children. The King family has resided in the Sullivan County area since 1801 and many descendants still reside in the Sullivan County area. Now he's on his way to tell the stories of the younger generations to the ancestors.

The following email is from Connie (King) LaGrega on December 29, 2006 which she wrote to me regarding a few questions I had as to some of the descendants of John L. King listed in his obituary: "Lorin;

Yes it's been awhile since we spoke. I hate the new message boards. You can't see anything unless you click on everything, and how many people are going to do that except people like us.

Uncle John & Aunt Beulah's children:

John II is the oldest. I knew his wife's name but never wrote it down & they are divorced for quite a few years now, his son John III is married to a Kimberly, I don't know her maiden name, Brock is their son. Sheila is next, married a Myers, they are missionaries, for one of the churches in the Hughesville area. Next is Alex, his wife was named Connie also, she died a couple of years ago. They had no children. The youngest is Greta, we stay in touch very often. She was married to Keith Richard Evans. Before the divorce they lived on land her father gave her next to his house in Hughesville. Danielle K. & Kayla J. are their teenage daughters.

Donne's wife is Marion Stieger. Her mother use to own the hotel in Nordmont, after her father died, her mother rented rooms to hunters for awhile. I can remember playing in all the different rooms and in the creek out back as a child. Her mother was a Peterman and I think it was her family that had the Hotel first. I am not sure if it's still there, it was on the right just across from the bridge, next to Van Dynes store. Kyle G. Hoffman, is John III's step son (wife's son.). Thanks for posting the obit you did. Aunt Beulah is sending me a copy because I hadn't seen it yet. Uncle John had Leukemia for three years before he died & he made his doctor promise not to tell the family when he found out. They only found out after his death. They knew he had things wrong because he took a lot of medicine, but he didn't want them to know and worry. The doctor said his heart and Lungs were that of a much younger man, his kidney's failed because of the disease. He didn't smoke, drink alcohol, soft drinks or eat junk food. I am sure when my father and him were younger they drank but since his children were born I never heard of him drinking. He swore like a truck driver that was an out standing trait he had, but it was all just his way of talking because he would do anything he could for anyone and he helped so many people. His Uncle Tom who lived on his father's (Lemuel King) homestead until his health failed was sort of the black sheep of the King clan, he stayed on the mountain an very seldom came down, wore the same bib overhauls that needed a serious washing all the time, we all loved this old man even though he was different and rough, when his health failed Uncle John brought him home to his house to live and die. Everyone said he was a nasty old man near the end, but that didn't matter to Uncle John he was family.

Probate records:

Alfred William Mullan born 16 APR 1884 in Waterloo, Black Hawk County, IA, last child of Judge Charles W. Mullan and Emma Lucy Hammond [son of Charles and America Virden Mullan). Alfred married Helen Murphy on Wednesday, August 10, 1921, in Vinton, IA. Alfred W. followed his father's occupation, and was a lawyer, graduating from Iowa State University in 1908.

Alfred W. Mullan died January, 1969 (SSDI). Don't know the exact date, but prior to January 15, 1969. His wife Helen must have died prior to him.

They had two children. One daughter, Priscilla Mullan, born 14 MAY 1922 in Waterloo, Black Hawk County, IA. She died 06 SEP 2007 in Waterloo, Black Hawk County, IA. She did not live in Black Hawk County, IA all her life, but that is where she died.

I have calculated, from the date that Charles and America Virden Mullan first came to Black Hawk County, IA, which was June 21, 1846, to the death of Priscilla Mullan, how many years descendants of Charles and America Mullan have lived and died in Waterloo, Black Hawk County. It comes to 161 years+.
