MARYLAND FAMILY.






*.. . M



k.. .J



Capt. James Mullikin^ (1), eldest son of Capt. Thomas and Elizabeth Ellen
(Williams) Mullikin, was b. on the old plantation at the "Forks of the
Patuxent," Anne Arundel Co., Md., about 1765-7. He m. for his first wife
a Miss Pettie, and as he was joint-heir with his brother Benjamin to the
homestead, we supposed that he lived there, but others believe that he had
an estate some twenty miles from Baltimore. In the year 181 1, he sold his
share of " Simpson's Choice " and " Merriton's Fancy," comprised in the
old plantation, and with his family, household goods in enclosed wagons,
slaves, and stock removed to Kentucky. It was the springtime. In passing
from Maryland to Kentucky it was neccessary to cross a section of Ohio, a
free state, and the citizens along the route followed by the Mullikins, threat-
ened vengeance upon them unless they hurried across the river. The poor
negroes were terribly frightened, fearing the " Abolitioners" would take them
away, and crowded close to the wagons. Families of Duvall and Terrence
went with the Mullikins. They crossed the Ohio river from Virginia to
Ohio, going down the north bank to Aberdeen, where they waited for favor-
able weather ; then crossed on a ferry boat to Kentucky. They then fol-
lowed the old buffalo trail road southward about 25 miles to Mount Tabor,
where they settled. Here several hundred acres of land were acquired, a
large log house flanked with enormous stone chimneys, built, and a home
established.

The county records show that Capt. James Mullikin sold his Mount
Tabor farm, where " Mullikin's Inn " stood, and conveyed it by deed to
Daniel Runnion on May 5, 182 1. This estate comprised 122 acres after he
had sold a small parcel to the "Union church," now " Mt. Tabor church."
He lived for a short time, before going to Indiana, in a hollow near one fork
of Buchanan's creek ; and Robert E. Hildreth remembers having attended a
religious service in the house (now torn down) when a boy. The records
show that some of the deeds of Captain Mullikin were recorded in Nicholas
Co., Ky. Tradition says he lost all of his property in Kentucky by " going
security " for others ; and his slaves were probably taken from him by pro-
cess of law.

The farm of Capt. James Mullikin in Fleming Co., Ky., was about 300
yards from the old Mt. Tabor church, and on the old state road leading from
Blue Lick Springs and points beyond, through the Kentucky and Virginia
mountains, to the eastern markets to which the farmers drove their fattened
stock to be sold ; and there he kept the well and widely known " Mullikin's
Inn," where the drovers passed the nights and fed their cattle. The old
house is still standing in very good repair, and occupied by James Ogdon.

One fork of Buchanan's Creek, called the " Mount Tabor Branch," flowed
up on the south side of the Mullikin farm, while Elk creek on the north,
headed up near the house.

When the Mullikin family settled on their land near Mt. Tabor church,
there was only an old log structure and a burying ground there ; but about

1823, the citizens of that locality replaced the oriojinal buildin<j with a brick
chapel, and Richard and Uasil Mullikin helped lu make the bricks and did
other work on the house. It is said that the wife of Capt. Mullikin, beinj^
an old-fashioned Methodist, used to make the walls of the old log meetinj^
house rinii; with her puljlic exhortations and invocations.

Among the slaves carried from the old plantation on the Patuxent to the
new plantation in Kentucky, was a full-blooded (niinea negro purchased of
the slave-traders. Marv, the slave girl given his daughter, Henrietta Hil-
dreth, by Capt. James Mullikin, was the child of his (Juinea negro. Her
children's names were : Richard, Henry, Caroline, America and Susan Jane.
Henry and Caroline are still living, aged respectively 60 and 58 years.

Three solid silver spoons, on the handles of which are engraved the let-
ters "J. A. M," are now owned by Robert E. Hildreth of Klizaville, Ky.,
and are highly prized as heirlooms that were handed down in the Mullikin
family. It is related that Capt. Mullikin, when living in Maryland, was ac-
customed to go from his home to Baltimore Bay to procure tish and oysters
for his family, and that a considerable stock of the bivalves were planted
in the home cellar, and by feeding, were kept for some time.

Capt. James Mullikin did not return to his early home in Maryland but
once; in 1814, he appeared with a drove of horses and mules which were
sold to the planters round about ; then went back to the " Corncracker State"
and was not afterwards heard from by his kindred, save by a rumor that he
had removed to Ohio.

He had married a second wife in Marvland named Aw Duvall,* of an
old aristocratic family frequently connected with the Mullikins by the bolts
of wedlock. By this union there were not less than nine children of whom
more presently. She was a woman of fine intelligence and not unconscious
of the social standing of her ancestors whose prestige she wished to main-
tain. She was a devout Methodist of the old stamp who exhorted in meet-
ings and prayed in public and at home. Her children were trained to be
God-fearing and honest, and she left upon them the ineffaceable impress of
her own excellent character.

Tradition says that Capt. Mullikin was, in early life, a chivalrous, dash-
ing fellow, fond of athletic sports and hunting, and rode to hounds with a
reckless contempt of danger that challenged the courage of the best horse-
men in the chase. Brave, ambitious and aspiring, he coveted military honors
and was commissioned a captain while yet a young man.

In the year 1834, with his wife and four younger children, he joined the
army of emigrants and removed to Crawfordville, Montgomery Co., Ind.,
but subsequently crossed the state line and settled in Illinois, where they
are said to have passed the remainder of their days.

*There is a dircrepancy of opinion respecting the maiden name of Capt. James Mul-
likin's wife. Henry C. Mullikin of ^Vood\vardville, Md.,\vho lives on the I'atuxtent plan-
tation, said her name was Ann IIowakd. Jessie H. Mullikin of Ewing, Ky., says her
name was Su.san Howard. James S. Mullikin of Willmore, Ky., believed her name was
Eliza Duvall. Robert E. Hildreth of Elizaville, Ky., supposed her name was A.\N
DuvALL, and finds that she signed her husband's deeds as Ann Mullican. Mr. Hil-
dreth says a family named Duvall moved from Maryland to Kentucky with the MuUikin's
and settled near them ; and the children of " Capt. Jim," called them "uncle " and "aunt ;"
but Mrs. Duvall may have been a Howard and a sister of Mrs. Mullikin. The Duvall
children, cousins of the Mullikins, were named Marcus, Joseph, Eckcaui, Thomas, Allu\

CHILDREN OF JAMES AND ANN DUVAL,!..

1. William Mullikiir ( 1), eldest son of James' (1), b. in Anne Arundel Co.,
Md., Nov. 7, 17S9; m. March 28, 1816, in Shelby Co., Ky., Dorcas Kin-
KADE,* and d. in Montgomery Co., Ind., Apr. 3, 1855. He was grown to
maturity when, in the spring of 18 11, his father and family removed from
Maryland to Kentucky. He seems to have settled some distance from his
parents, in Shelby Co., Ky. The army rolls at Franklin, Ky., and the U.S.
pension records and documents on file at the Auditor's department, Wash-
ington, D.C., disclose the fact that this William Mullikin enlisted Nov. 10,
18 14, as a private in Capt. James Ford's Co. of the 13th Ky. Reg. of militia
for one year, and was discharged May 10, 1S15. He was wounded in the
left thigh at the battle of New Orleans. He moved to Brown's Valley,
Montgomery Co., Ind., Sept. 12, 1831, where he cleared his farm and where
he resided the remainder of his days. His homestead was near the "Old
Freedom " Baptist church of which he was an honored deacon, and his wife
an active member. Both were buried in the " Old Hickory graveyard,"
some two miles north of their home.

Mr. W. W. Stewart, whose father and uncle served in the war of 18 12
with William Mullikin, informs me that he had a good farm in Brown's town-
ship ; that his house, part of logs and part framed, was considered to be a
comfortable pioneer home ; that he was of medium size ; that he always lived
well ; that his wife was small, very enterprising, an excellent cook, and a
tailoress by trade who, like her namesake, Dorcas of the bible, " made coats
and garments." Mr. Mullikin was a plain, old-fashioned man, peaceable
and honest. His house was on the road leading from Crawfordsville to
Deer Mill, ten miles southwest from the former place.

On March 23, 1849, he applied for a pension and was allowed $8.00 a
per month. His last payment was made through the Indianapolis agency,
March 4, 1855. As no widow applied for pension his wife evidently pre-
deceased him. Children, of whom more with 3d generation, named William,
Preston CaiToll, James Galey, Addison, John Kinkade, Hugh, Mary, and
America. Two d. in infancv.

2. Adaline Mullikin- (1), eldest daughter of James' (1), b. at the "Forks
of the Patuxent " in Anne Arundel Co., Ind., about 1790 ; went to Fleming
Co., Ky., with her parents in 181 1 ; was m. to Peter Moss, and removed,
some say, to Missouri. She has been lost sight of by her relatives in Ken-
tucky. Supposed to have had children.

*The wife of this William Mullikin was a near relative of the celebrated Christian
minister, Rev. William Kinkade, so well known throughout the south and west in early
pioneer days. He traveled extensively for many years, and was the author of a valuable
l)Ook, titled " Kinkade's Bible Doctrine." Tradition says he was many times a welcome
guest in William MuUikin's home in Kentucky. The Kinkades moved from the back-
woods of Pennsylvania to Kentucky, in 1786. Elder Jacob Kinkade a Missionary I'.aptist
preacher from Kentucky, and a brother of Dorcas, was a neighbor to William Mullikin in
Brown's township.

ten. When Capt. Mullikin and his wife died, Julia Ann (Mullikin) Carter advised her
relatives in Kentucky by letter.

Co., Ky., and settled near the famous battle ground on Licking river, where
the Whites were defeated by the Indians. Here the MuUikins resided the
remainder of their days as farmers. He was a land and stock dealer, an
officer, auctioneer, and merchant. He was a slaveholder. In early life he
was employed with his brothers, Richard and Basil, on the great bridge
that spanned the Licking river. Later he engaged in land speculation,
acquired an extensive plantation and purchased slaves for its cultivation.
He lost heavily in consequence of signing a sheriff's bond, but saved some
money and engaged in merchandising, continuing till he d. in 1894. His
wife predeceased him in 1S84. He was a " heavy-set man of fair complex-
ion." The old house in Robertson Co., Ky., where he lived, is still standing.
Eleven children. See 3d generation.

7. John Mullikin'- (1), second son of James^ (1), b. say 1813, near Mt. Ta-
bor, Fleming Co., Ky. He remained a bachelor for many years and run a
freight wagon between Mayesville on the Ohio river and Lexington, Ky.
He finall)^ went to Harrison Co., Ky., where he m. Susan Wolf, but lived
for many years near the home of his brother Benjamin in Robertson Co.,
Ky. He returned to Harrison Co., however, late in life and continued his
residence there until killed by his runaway horses. The rattling of a load
of poles upon his wagon frightened the spirited animals ; he lost control of
them, fell under the wheels, and was found dead. John Mullikin was a man
of originality and something of a wit. A very worthy young man named
Fox courted one of his daughters and would have married her, but her father
objected for the reason that there was " enough of wild blood in the family
already, and he did not believe in crossing the wolf and fox." He was about
75 years of age. Eight children named as follows: Leu<is,fa7nes, TJwvias,
Samuel, Barbara, Ellen, N'ancy and Sarah. See 3d generation.

8. Richard Mullikin'- (1), fourth son of James^ (1), b. in Fleming Co., Ky.,
181 5. Spent his young days on the homestead. He and Basil, his brother,
assisted in making the bricks for Mount Tabor church, besides doing con-
siderable other work on the new building. In 1834, in company with his
parents and a brother and two sisters, he removed to Crawfordville, Mont-
gomery Co., Ind., where he lived until, with his parents, he crossed the state
line and settled in Illinois.

9. Basil Mullikin- (1), fifth son of James^ (l)jb. in Fleming Co., Ky., 18 16,
spent his early days on his father's plantation. When the bridge was built
across Licking river on the noted Maysville and Lexington turnpike, he
turned a grindstone for sharpening the workmen's tools at a wage of $100
per month, and scrupulously saved his money to invest in cheap land in
Indiana and Illinois. With his parents and others of the family he removed
to Crawfordville, Montgomery Co., Ind., in 1834, and thence to Illinois.
Basil was a man of good judgment, prudence, and industry, and acquired a
handsome estate.

Note. — Many letters of inquiry were forwarded to the descendants of John MuUikm,
and the family genealogy requested, but they have not furnished any information ; conse-
quently, the author is not in the fault. Relatives have said that the sons of John were
m. and settled near, if not on, his homestead farm at a place called Renaker, in Harrison
Co., Ky., and it is supposed that numerous descendants are still living in that vicinity.
Samuel Mullikin is reported to have d. from injuries received in a walking match.
