John MuUiken^, whose parents are not certainly known but who was born in
Bradford, Mass., as early as 1735-8, was married June 15, 1758, to Susanna
HusE, and they are both styled in the records "of Haverhill." She died Mar.
I, 1S20. The statement "John the husband died," stands on record, but no
dates are given. These had a family of nine children born in Haverhill, Mass.,
whose names and wliat we know of their posterity will follow:

Jfouvtb cOcncvation.


1. Stephen MuUiken^ (1), eldest son of John'^ (1), and Susanna Huse, b. in
Haverhill, Mass., Nov. 7, 1759; d. there July 13, 1763.

2. Samuel Mulliken^ (1), second son of John^ (1), and Susanna Huse, was b.
in Haverhill, Mass., Sept. 22, 1761, and was three times married. His first
wife was Susanna Pearson, widow of Jonathan Mulliken, of Newburvport,
Mass., to whom he was married Mar. 20, 1783. He had worked with her first
husband as a clockmaker and may have learned the trade of him. By this
woman, who was several years his senior, and who was said to have died in
Lynn, Mass., with yellow fever, he had i-ssue three children. He was m. 2d,
in Salem, Mass., Apr. 19, 1789, to Sally Newhall of that town, daughter of
Col. Ezra Newhall of the Revolution, by whom there were eight children. He
was m. in Salem, Mass., May 8, 1819, to Miss Lydia Sanderson. Mr. Mulli-
ken lived for several years in Salem, Mass., where he worked at his trade of
watchmaker, but, later, removed to Lynn, Mass., where he remained till his
death, which occurred Nov. 25, 1847. ^^i"- Mulliken did a large business, for
many year?, as a tanner and merchant, at one time having a large store at the
southern end of Market Street. He was a man of strict integrity and great
industry. He had a strong will, which being usually set in the right direction,
stood him in good stead. He once related an instance of its operation which
seems more amusing than beneficial. During the active portion of his life, it
was a custom, as public conveyances were few, for a couple of business men to
Aisit Boston in company, one to pay for the horse and vehicle, and the other
paying the tolls and horse keeping. One chilly November day, he and Jere-
miah Bullfinch, a neighbor, agreed to visit Boston in that partnership way.
Mr. Bullfinch was to furnish the conveyance, and Mr. Mulliken to pay expenses.
WTien they arrived at Charlestown, which was early in the forenoon, they found



that an additional toll, or some other charge, to the amount of sixpence, on which
neither had calculated, had been levied. Mr. MuUiken contended that the
extra charge should be equally shared; but Mr. Bullfinch declared that none
of it rightfully fell to him. They were equally matched for stubbornness and
there they sat, disputing and arguing, till the declining sun warned them that
it was time their horse's head was turned homeward; and home they rode, each
undoubtedly congratulating himself on his triumph, "and," added Mr. MuUi-
ken, as he related the incident, his countenance radiating with the old fire within,
though he was more than 80 years of age, " I would have sat there till this time
before I would have paid it." — {History oj Lynn, by Alonzo Lewis.) Mr.
MuUiken had issue, by two wives, eleven children. (See 5th generation.)

3. Susanna Muliiken* (1), eldest daughter of John (1), b. in Haverhill, Mass.,
Jan. 26, 1764; d. May 12, 1766.

4. Stephen MuUiken^ (2), second son of John^ (1), b. in HaverhiU, Mass., Oct.
31, 1766.

5. Joseph Mulliken^ (1), third son of John^ (1), b. in HaverhiU, Mass., Oct.
22, 1768; d. Feb. 27, 1770.

6. Joseph MuUiken^ (2), fourth son of John^ (1), b. in Haverhill, Mass., May

6. 1771; d. Aug. 9, 1795.

7. Ruth MuUiken^ (1), second daughter of John^ (1), b. in HaverhiU, Mass.,
June 12, 1773; d. Aug. 11, 1773.

8. Susanna MuUiken^ (2), third daughter of John^ (1), b. in HaverhiU, Mass.,

2. William MuUiken^ (1), second son of Samuel* (1), b. in Newburyport, Mass.,
Sept. 17, 1785; m. Submit Sanderson of HoUis, N. H., and lived in Lynn,

Eliz.^beth Smart, who d. in i860, aged 50 years. The family settled in
Augusta, Me., in 1S45, and Mr. Mulliken was a director in the Freeman's Na-
tional Bank there for many years. He was a man of retiring habits, never wish-
ing to be conspicuous, and a real " home body." He was famihar with all cur-
rent events; not a great talker, but a tireless reader. He was also a director for
a railroad. He did an extensive business, always paid in full, and was respected
by his fellow-citizens and beloved by his family. Always voted the Whig or
Republican tickets, believing that the best results come from the government
by that party. He was 89 years of age at his death. There were seven chil-
dren, named as follows:

I. George S. Mulliken®, a lawyer and judge, d. in San Antonio, Texas,
where he had been associated with his brother in business.

n. Charles Henry Mulliken®, b. in Hallowell, Me., on Mar. 18, 183 1;
m. Dec. 3, 1851, Miss Sarah E. Hallett, daughter of Watson F.
Hallett of Augusta, Me. He was educated in Augusta, Me., until eigh-
teen years of age. He then went to Boston, where he secured a situation
in a merchandise broker's office, in which he spent three years. Return-
ing to x\ugusta, he started in business on his own account, as a member
of the firm of Davis & Mulliken, and was thus engaged for seven years.
He was president of the Freeman's National Bank in Augusta for about
40 years. His next venture was in the southern commission trade,
founding the house of Means & Mulliken, with headquarters at Boston.
They estabUshed a line of packets between that city and Indianola,
Texas, having also a store at San Antonio, where a brother of Mr. Mul-
liken was located in charge. The firm did a thriving business until the
breaking out of the late Civil War, which brought, as a rule, speedy
ruin upon all Northern men who had business enterprises in the South.
Their stock of goods, valued at nearly $50,000, was seized by the Con-
federate government and confiscated. Mr. Means, on hearing of the
calamity which had befallen them, went South to see what could be
done toward retrieving their los-ses. He was at once arrested at San
Antonio, and sent to Matamoras under guard, where he escaped to
Mexico, and afterward got to New Orleans, whence, by the help of
General Butler, he came North. Their losses amounted to $50,000,
and as Mr. Mulliken had his all invested in the enterprise, this misfor-
tune, of course, left him a ruined man. At the same time, too, his health
failed him, which for years compelled him to retire from anything like
active business Hfe. The sudden and disastrous termination of his busi-
ness affairs, also, left him deeply in debt, but these obligations he after-
ward liquidated by paying one hundred cents on the dollar to his credit-
ors. He then made up his mind to go west, and in August, 1S65,
went to Chicago, which has since been his home. Here he first entered
the employ of Page 8z Sprague, wholesale dealers in paints, oils and


glass, on Dearborn Street, as confidential man. He continued with them
until 1872, meanwhile losing all he had in the fire. He then became
cashier in a savings bank until 1874, when he entered the real estate
business, in which he has remained until the present time. Mr. Mulh-
ken is an elder and active member of the Fourth Presbyterian
Church. He is particularly active in mission work, and is assistant
superintendent of the Howe Street Mission, with a Sunday school num-
bering six hundred, and a very prosperous industrial school attached.
He is also a member of the Citizens' Association, Chicago Club, Union
Club, Real Estate Board, and is on the Executive Committee of the
Presbyterian Social Union. As a real estate dealer Mr. MuUiken has
from the first taken a leading position, and since 1874 has been con-
nected with many of the important changes in Chicago realty.
