Though George Mullis made a will in 1833--recorded in Surry Co.--there is no evidence it was ever probated.Katheryn Manard has discovered that a daughter, Caroline Mullis Roark, unnamed in that will, recorded a claim against his estate in early 1850, naming George Jr., her brother, as her power of attny; in which document it appears that George Mullis had only recently died, so perhaps he actually died in 1849.An elderly male is ennumerated with George Jr. in 1840 Fed. Census, who, by age-bracket could certainly have been George Sr.
Also newsworthy:Ambrose Mullis Sr.(b.c. 1771), George's younger brother, was recorded in 1840 Fulton Co., Ill under Mullace; with him was a (likely son) George who died in 1848/9 in his thirties, owning land in neighboring Knox Co., Ill., his estate was probated; he left heirs, including one male (John Mullis) who removed to Johnson Co., Tx. by 1870, after which I loose track of him.
