What is this Website Anyway?

In the year 1740, a baby was born in Tralee, County Kerry, Ireland that would be very important to thousands of people, including me.

John Patrick McMullan was born and when he was about twenty years old, around 1760, he emigrated to British Colonial America to the colony of Virginia.

John would marry and start a family but then the Revolutionary War broke out in America. John served in an all-Irish volunteer group. When he finally returned home, his wife was gone. He had five children with her and after he remarried, he had ten more. John became the progenitor of hundreds and thousands of McMullan's across the United States of America! From humble beginnings in Virginia, in 1797, all but two of John's children left Virginia with him, loaded up all their belongings and moved to northeastern Georgia where more land and more opportunities awaited. McMullan's spread out through Georgia, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, Indiana and even further.

John's descendants served on both sides of the American Civil War. Many McMullan's were farmers, businessmen, ministers and about any other occupation you can imagine. It is to those McMullan's that this web site is dedicated!

Have you ever wondered about your family history? Have you ever wondered where your family came from? That's what this web site is for. I have compiled the most comprehensive Family Tree ever for the McMullan family. It is an ongoing effort. This is a private web site I will never spam you or sell or share your information.
If you have scanned photos of your grandparents, great grandparents, etc., and they are from the McMullan family or related to the McMullan family, PLEASE email them to me so we can include them on this web site

What is Available On This Site?

First and foremost this is your family tree and it is here, in an electronic file. This file is in a "Gedcom" format. Various apps are available that will open a .ged file and help you view your family tree. Many people use Family Tree Make but it was discontinued after the 2017 version. I recommend Family Tree Builder that is available free from MyHeritage.com. Doing a search on the web will help you find a program.

That's just a small part of this website. You will also find stories and photos from McMullans throughout history.

To View the McMullan Family Tree You Need a File that Will Read a Gedcom File Such As Family Tree Builder or Family Tree Maker.

I NEED your help to make this the most comprehensive family file for the McMullan family! Please send me your family line, even if you don't know a lot of it.

If you have questions about your family line, email me or call me and I will take a look to see if you or your family is in the new family file. If it isn't, once we can trace your line back to John McMullan, I will add your file to our McMullan Family Tree!

Learn About John Patrick McMullan

In the early 1990's, I began to take an interest in my family's history. I knew that many of the McMullan's had come from and still lived in Newton and Decatur, Mississippi. Researching this, I contacted Milton McMullan of Newton, Mississippi and he mailed me a copy of Captain McMullan's book. I am deeply grateful to Milton, who has since passed, for sending me the copy of the book and I am also grateful to Captain McMullan for doing the research on the McMullan family and putting it in print for the McMullan family. Again, in late 2002, I began to take more interest in finding out more about my family's heritage. Captain McMullan's book had a somewhat incomplete history in my line of the family so I decided to correct the mistakes. As I began to read through the book, I began to see how terribly hard it was to follow the lineage of the families in the book. Because of the difficulty, I decided to put the information in the book into a computer file. A few months later, I completed entering all of the data into a Family Tree Maker file. Through many of the online web sites, Ancestry.com, Genealogy.com, Rootsweb.com, etc., I was able to contact other distant family members. They have been so helpful in finding information on the McMullan family and in helping to correct some of the mistakes that are in the McMullan book.

With the help of many distant relatives, I am able to offer the GEDCOM file of the McMullan family history to the McMullan family. This is truly my gift to my living relatives and to my ancestors who have gone on before me. I can remember the hours I would talk to my Grandfather, Hubert Newton McMullan. He truly did live in a different world when he was my age. I only wish I would have had many more years to sit and listen to the stories of his life and to the many other Grandparents, Great Uncles and Great Aunts.

If you are a descendent of John McMullan's, I need your help. I would like to make this file the most complete file available for any family in the world. It is my wish that each and every McMullan or any other person that has a tie to the family will be able to quickly and easily see where they came from. If you have family photos, stories or family documents that can be added to this file, please make them available to me and the rest of the McMullan family. I do not wish to capitalize by making this file available. It will be available at cost or, if you send me a blank CD with the necessary return postage, I will send you a copy of the file and all the photos and documents that I have. As I add more photos and information, the file will obviously change. Because of this, I will give each revision a new revision number. To see which revision is the most current, look at the top right corner of this web site. You may also download the GEDCOM file which is much smaller in size, from this web site. It will not contain photos and copies of family documents. The Family Tree Maker file is too large to be available at this site.

Thank you for your help and may God continue to bless the McMullan family!

Calling on All McMullans!

I started this website back in 2003, after making my trip back to Mississippi and Georgia and meeting so many of you wonderful McMullan kinfolk! I wanted to put together a website that would be a place where people could get come and learn about their family history. Capt. Albert McMullan's book was out there but as many of you know, his book is full of mistakes and not all the family lines are there. He did a great job with what he had at the time but we can do better with everything we have now.

I am asking all of you McMullan's and McMullan relatives to help me make this the best McMullan resource on the Web. I need copies of your photos and family stories to put on here. Email them to me and if you don't hear from me, keep at me. Sometimes I miss an email here and there.

If you have ideas for the website, I am open to that too. If you think of ways that the site can run more smoothly, let me know! And if you are ever in the Orlando, Florida area, let me know, I'd love to meet you!
