DUNN, MULLIN, MULLINS posted by Kelly Parks on Friday, November 1, 1996

For year I have search for info for Ann "Elizabeth" DUNN who married MULLIN/MULLINS. In 1888 she had Robert "Walter" Price. Walter was illegitimate. His father was Robert "James" Price of Lincoln and Lawrence Co. MS. Family legend says that she had already had 3 children by her husband who had died. These 3 children were Joe /Joseph, Eligah, Ada/Ava that married S.B. Harris. I have never found Elizabeth or any of her other children in any record.[census (not as a adult or child), Tax, Deeds, etc]. I did find a marriage record for a Elizabeth Dunn and William E. Mullins in Jan 9, 1879 Jefferson Co. My question is this my Elizabeth Dunn. I could not find a William Mullins in the 1880 census for Jefferson Co. I have just about given up hope of ever figuring out this family. Kelly Parks 2112 Hawkins Rd., Pattison, MS, 39144.
