Part of the following info on this line was submitted by a Lovell Davis (III, I think) to a Mullican newsletter for the June 1994 issue.
Lovell Davis Mullican Sr b March 04, 1893 DeKalb Co, TN (m Martha Lessie Cooper)
< John William Mullican March 20, 1866 Warren Co, TN d December 14, 1910 Nashville, TN (m Hannah Elizabeth Davis b April 14, 1858 d September 14, 1931 Nashville, TN)
< James Polk Mullican b July 1845 DeKalb Co, TN d aft 1900 Warren Co, TN(m Kate Forester b1844 TN)
< Perry G. Mullican b April 14, 1822 Warren Co, TN d 1860 DeKalb Co, TN (m Martha Jones b 1822)
< John Greenbury Mullican b November 17, 1791Spartanburg, SC (m Sarah Barnes b December 25, 1797 NC d May 20, 1876 DeKalb Co, TN)
< William Mullican b 1769 Bedford Co, VA d March 24, 1851 Warren Co, TN (m Wilmoth Bruce and 3 others)
< William Mullican b Abt. 1741 MD d 1815 Casey Co, KY (m Nancy Ann Allen b abt 1742 Brunswick Co, VA d Abt. 1820 Warren Co, TN)
There are also other Mullican / Davis connections:
Pleasant Mullican b abt 1818 (parents: Jerimiah Mullikin and Frances Holbrook) d after 1860 m a Nancy whose last name was thought to be Davis; Pleasant lived in Simpson Co, MS in 1840, and I believe moved to Winn Parish, LA by 1859 according to Ben Wynne's research with land records there.I suspect the MS Mullicans to be related to the TN Mullicans.
Dovie Lee Mullican b June 24, 1892 Warren Co TN was thought to have m a Davis (and at least one other spouse); her parents were John J.Mullican and Rebecca Allen < John Jefferson Mullican < John Greenbury Mullican etc.
There were a couple of other Davis/Mullican marriages, but I doubt they are pertinent here.
