John MuUican^ (1 ), whose parentage is unknown, may be properly designated
the head of this branch of the Kentucky family. His descendents are quite
sure that he was a native of North Carolina, but the author inclines to the
belief that he was born in Montgomery Co., Md., as this branch of the
" Western Shore " family of Mullikins were in the habit of spelling their sur-
name " Mullican." He was, however, a resident of South Carolina at the
time of his removal to Casey Co., Ky. He may have been one of the "twenty
brothers ' of whom tradition says eighteen reached maturity and became the
lusty progenitors of a mighty Mullican host in the southern states. It seems
probable that he was a relative, in no remote degree, of the other Mullikin
and Mullican families that removed from North to South Carolina ; and we
know they originated in Maryland.

The Mullikins were clanish, and this John may have been induced by his
kinsmen who preceded him, to remove to Kentucky. While investigating
this man's history, for some time it seemed probable that he and a John
Mullikin, a soldier of the Revolution who settled in Shelby Co., Ky., were
identical. Both were in the state at contemporary dates. A more careful
study of the family records in comparison with data found in the archives
at Frankfort, Ky., and in the army rolls and pension records at Washing-
ton, has convinced the author that they were not identical. Although the
names Mullikin and Mullicafi were used interchangeably in the public re-
cords through errors in the spelling by scribes, it is significant that the
families themselves have universally continued to use the orthography by
which their immediate ancestors were designated. The posterity of John
Mullikin who removed from Spotsylvania Co., Va., to Shelby Co., Ky.,
and now so numerous in the west, spell their name Midlikin ; while the
descendants of the John who settled in Casey Co., Ky., have spelled theirs

This John Mullican was living in Casey Co., Ky., as early as 1818, and
is supposed to have come from North Carolina in company with his son
Solomon several years previous to that date. He was located on Knoblick
Creek, in the Green river valley and on the county road between Somerset
and Middleburg. His grandchildren remember the ruins of the foundation
of his house and of playing in childhood days with fragments of the bricks
which once composed his chimney. The farm is now owned by Mr. Leslie
Carman. Polly Elmore, an oracle in the family, says John Mullican went
to Warren Co., Tenn., with his sons John and William, but his descendants
there have no knowledge of his living in that state. His widow, however,
whose maiden name is believed to have been Nancy Ann Allen, d. at the
home of her son John in Warren Co., Tenn., when very aged.

This pair had no less than eight children whose names and history, as
far as known, will follow. In but few instances, have any vital records been
found in this family and, consequently, their genealogy will be deficient in
dates of births, marriages and deaths.


1. Solomon Mullican'^ (1), a son of John* (l), b. in So. Carolina, Sept. i,
1784; m. Naxcv Ridckway, ( b. June 28, 1784) Feb. 3, 1804, and .settled
first in Lincoln Co., Ky., where he remained till 1818, when he removed to
Casey Co., Ky., between Somerset and Middleburg, where, in 1822, he built
a large, hewed-timber dwelling which is still standing but used as a store-
house by Mr. Durham, who owns the farm. Here he lived until his death
which occurred Nov. 17, 1871. His wife d. in Jan. iSSo. Thev were
buried in a small lot not far from the house. He was a prudent and' indus-
trious farmer, a member of the Christian church, and a man whose upright
character won the esteem of his neighbors. He was verv t;\ll and of hiir
complexion. Eleven children. See 6th generation.

2. John Mullican' (2), a son of John^ (l), removed from the (.reenville
district. So. Carolina, in 1818, to Warren Co., Tenii. He located on the

afterward called "The Mullican Settlement." John's homestead was .some
four miles southw'est from that of his brother William. He m. M.\rv BRLfCK

^Ir. Mullikin was of medium size, of dark complexion and cross-eyed. Time
of d. unknown.

3. William MulUcan^^ (1), son of John^ (l), b. in So. Carolina, removed to
Warren Co., Tenn., in 1818 and located on a mountain stream near " .Adam
Tittle's mill," about four miles northeast from the homestead of his brother
John, just mentioned. He m. four times; first wife was Wii, moth Bruce
by whom nine children ; he m. second, " an old widow woman," Elizabeth
FuSTON, who had raised a family. He m. thirdly, "an old maid" named
Elizabeth Smith, who, dying, he m. lastly, " an old widder woman " named
Fraxky Barnes ; both were rising 80. Well done ! Willam Mullican survived
until 84 years of age and his widow until she was nearly 100. He was tall,
large, and of dark complexion. For names of children see 6th generation.

4. James Mullican"' (l), son of John* (l), removed to Indiana when a young
man. He was probably b. in South Carolina. His wife was named Lamb,
sister of Frazer Lamb who lived on Noblick Creek in Casey Co., Ky., where
he was evidently m. A son, James Mullican^ w'ho visited relatives in Ky.,
is remembered. This is all we know of his family.

5. Thomas Mullican' (l), a son of John* (l), b. in South Carolina. Said to
have settled in Tenn.

5. Ning Mullican'^ (1), a son of John* (l), b. in South Carolina, is supposed
to have settled in Tenn.

6. Nancy Mullican^ (!)» a daughter of John* (l), b. in So. Carolina, was m.
to John Vickers, a soldier of the Revolution, and lived in Tenn.; and letters
were received from her by relatives in Ky. She was one of John's oldest
children. She did not live in Kentucky.

Note. — Xancy Ridgeway, who became the wife of Solomon Mullican, was b. in Vir-
ginia and was carried by her father, .Samuel Ridgeway, and her mother, Millie Phillips,
to .So. Carolina when six years of age. The mother of Samuel Ridgeway was Charity
Hendrix. The mother of Millie Phillips was Catherine Bastin.


7. Sally Mullicaii' (1), a daughter of Johir* (l), b. in So. Carolina, was m.
to William Carr and lived in Ky. until children reached maturity; then
