I'm looking for information on the Mullins/Wright families. My ggrandfather was Morgan Mullins he married Mamie Wright abt the mid 1800's. They had aleast 3 children 1. CorbettMullins, 2. Sam(Samuel) Mullins, 3. Ollie Mullins not sure if this is short for Olivia or Oliver. Corbett Mullins is my grandfather hewas born on Georges Fork, Clintwood, Va. Dickerson, County,VA. DOB was April 23, 1902. He married Stella Hall (mullins). They moved to Lechter County, Ky . To little coal mining town called Jenkins. they lived at 1295 Straight Row, Corbett and Stella had 5 children: 1. Leanore Mullins,2. Dorothy Mullins,3. Clayton Mullins,4. James Mullins and 5. Leroy Mullins. Leanore died at the young age of 17. Dorothy died in November of 1979 in Baltimore, Md, James went into the Military and was sent to Korea and was a MIA and Leroy died at the young age of 43 in Manchester, Md. this was July 23 1978 .Leroy Mullins is my dad. Stella my grandma died at the age of 30 around the beginning to middle of December 1934. Corbett died in June of 1977. I think Morgan had sibilings but I not sure who they are. This about all I know about the Mullins side. I know nothing of the Wright side. This is my ggrandmother's side. If anyone has info they would like to share I would greatly apperciate it. ect. dates of birth and dates of death. this is of great interest to me.

I'm not sure, but I may be related to another branch, or maybe it's just coincidence. My great grandfather was Lindsey Mullins. He married a woman from Wise Co., Va. Her name was Eliza Bell. She had two husbands prior to my great grandfather, so we're not sure what her maiden name was. My mom said maybe Belcher, but she's not at all sure. Eliza Bell was born April 2, 1865. My mother thinks Eliza Bell's mother's maiden name was Wright, or perhaps Eliza Bell's maiden name was Wright. She can't recall who carried the name Wright, but members of my family have traced the Wright lineage in our family to "Devil" John Wright, who I'm told came here on the Mayflower. The Mullins family originated in Ireland, travelled to England, then came here. Eliza Bell and Lindsey Mullins had four or five children together. The ones we know of are Oscar Lilburn Mullins (my grandfather), Fon Roger Mullins, and Orbin ? Mullins. My grandfather's birth records were destroyed in a fire. No one's sure if he was born in 1910 or 1909. Eliza Bell had 15 children, between her three husbands. We know she had a son Foster, a daughter Harriet, who was her oldest child, and died last year, I believe, at the age of 102. She lived most of her life in Elkhorn, Ky. Eliza Bell also had a daughter Angie Bell, who died about the age of 2. My grandfather, Oscar Mullins, was known throughout his life as Jack. Does your line and mine connect? Can you help me??? I can't get further back then Lindsey and Eliza Bell Mullins. Oscar Mullins married Dorothy Biddle from Baltimore, Md. and had four children. These four are still alive, but everyone else before them is deceased. If you have any info, please email me at Thanks, and good luck in your search! Leah in Baltimore

Terri, My GGrandmother was Lexsetty Mullins who married Abraham Newsome as I'm told they were married on Valentines Day 1900. Her Mother's Maden name was POTTER I believe. I don't have my information with me but if you e-mail I'll get you what I do Know. She had a brother by the name of Alford but I'm sure he went by the name Alfonso. They lived in Dortan, Vergie, Jenkins area of Pike County. Hope it helps.

I'm Alex and Clarinda's Great Granddaughter. I'm Magaline's granddaughter. I'm trying to find a photo of Magaline's Mom and Dad. Also, my Mom is no longer living but she told me of someone by the name of Alesaberry, Whinny, Carl, and Walter. Most died as young children. I'd love to hear of any info. you may have. I have photo's of Magaline and my grandpa Johnny. I'm not finding much on John...but added some info to my tree that I did find...I'm just not sure it is correct. I've just started searching since my Mom passed. I miss her bunches and just trying to find our more about my roots. Thanks
