Mullens of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania Updated September 20, 2009
About Our Family Research
I descend from Edward Mullen, who appears to have immigrated from Ireland to Philadelphia in 1816, and married Anna Tinsley in Tredyffrin, Chester County. Their son William T. Mullen was my 2X great grandpa; he was a threshing-machine mechanic who was in business in White Oak, Lancaster County. William and his wife Sarah (nee Shue) lived in Lancaster City from about 1859 until their deaths. Their children included my great grandma Sarah Jane Mullen, who married William Gast.
Edward seems to have come over with two close relatives, possibly brothers or a brother and their father: Patrick and Thomas. I have no further information about them beyond the passenger roster on which their names are found.
