mother's d. and in consequence of the burning of their home and its con-

No-i K — The surnames of the Mullikiiis on the Muster Rolls in the Adjutant General's
office, Frankfort, Ky., are spelled Mullikin, Mnllicaii and Miilicaii.

*I assume to say that Foursee — sometimes spelled Forshee and Forsee — is a French
surname, and that the Kentucky family came from Oiange or Chatham Co., N. C, where
some of them witnessed wills in the carlv days. — Autlior.
