This is a branch of the Mullikin family so early settled in Maryland and
a descendant, Mr. Joseph Laboon of (ieorj^ia, assumes that they were of
Welsh extraction, a derivation not elsewhere heard of, and probably an error.
Benjamin Mullikin of Pendleton Co., N. C. says his ancestors were Scotch-
Irish and that they came from Ireland to Virginia first, but soon removed
to North Carolina. As there are some reasons for believing that the Mul-
likins in Maryland removed from Virginia, this tradition relating t<j the
North Carolinian branch may be true. It is said that the father of the first
Benjamin Mullikin who settled in South Carolina had twenty sons of whom
eisrhteen attained their maioritv and settled in different Southern States.
Some are said to have spelled their surname "■ Mullican." I am now strongly
inclined to the belief that the numerous families named " Millican " and
"Mullican," so widely scattered in Georgia, Mississijipi, Tennessee, and
Texas, are of this stock, for they hold the tradition that their ancestors
came originally from South Carolina. It will be seen that some small off-
shoots of the old Maryland family spell the surname " Mullican."

Benjamin Mullikin, a son of James and Charity Mullikin, was b. in Prince
George Co., Md. as early as 1740, and removed to North Carolina when a
young man. He m. Margaret Jarvis, a native of Virginia, b. in 1766,
within a few miles of Yorktown, and was about fifteen years of age when
Conwallis surrendered (1781), and heard the musketry. She was m. about
1787, and d. near Anderson Court House, S. C, in 1838, aged 72 years.
Mr. Mullikin was a planter and d. where he first sat down, about 1842.
These had a family consisting of six sons and four daughters viz : /amcs,
JV/V/iaw, John, Benjamin, Samuel, Lezois, Nancy, Folly, Emily and Jenny.

^ccouD 6cncr;ition.


I. James Mullikin- (1), eldest son of Benjamin^ (1), was b. in North Caro-
lina, Nov. 9, 1794; m. Sept. 23, 1817, Malinda Norton who was b. Nov.
30, 1799, and settled on the homestead near Anderson County Court House.
The following extract from a declaration for pension on file in the U.S pen-
sion ortice at Washington, D.C., contains much pertinent information:

State of South Carolina )

- ss
County of Anderson. \

Upon this 29th day of April, 1871, personally appeared before me, A. O.
Norris, Judge of Probate for County and State aforesaid, a Court of Record.
James Mullikin, aged 76 years, a resident of the County and State afore-
said, who being duly sworn according to law, states that he is married, that
his wife's name is Malinda Mullikin, to whom he was married at .\nderson
County, S. C, on the 23d of September, 181 7 ; that he served in the military
for the period of 69 days in service of the United States, in the war of 181 2 ;
that he is the identical James Mullikin who volunteered, or was enrolled in


Captain Moses Kelly's Company, Col. Ruben Nash's Regiment, Pinckney's
Brigade, at Pendleton Village, on or about the first day of February, 1814,
and was honorably discharged at Fort Hawkins on or about the 15th day
of June, A.D., 1814 ; that he was in the cavalry service. After organization
was marched from Pendleton, S. C. to Fort Hawkins in the State of Georgia,
which was done in about a week, was there drilled about three weeks, then
crossed the river into the then Creek Nation en route for Horse Shoe Bend,
building forts on an average of every 39 miles on the route, and arrived in
hearing of the battle fought at that place by General Jackson, and joined
his army the second day after the battle, and marched to the head of the
Alabama River and built Fort Jackson ; and having scoured the country
with scouting parties, and after spending from 4 to 7 weeks at Fort Jackson
we were marched back to Fort Hawkins and there discharged as before
stated. That his discharge papers were regularly executed and delivered to
him, which have since been lost or misplaced. That he has received for
said services land warrents under the Acts of Congress in such case made
and provided. That he at no time during the late rebellion against the
authority of the United States adhered to the cause of the enemies of the
Government, giving them aid or comfort, except. as compelled by law.

The Adj. General's report on file with the above mentioned case shows
that James Mullikin enlisted as a corporal, January 29, 1814, and was dis-
charged July 20, 18 1 4. He received a pension of $8.00 per month from
February 14, 187 1. He died April 21, i888.

Malinda Mullikin received a pension as his widow of $12.00 per month,
and in her application for said pension she states that James Mullikin was
born at Slabtown, S. C, complexion fair, eyes blue.
