One of my grandmothers, Sarah Mulkey was married to Boyd Jr.'s brother William. She too, wa s a daughter of John Mulkey and Polly Lewis. John Mulkey was not only my grandfather but al so my step-grandfather, he married a second time my Grandmother, Charity Stark Vernon, wido w of my Grandfather, Nehemiah Vernon. It even gets better. Charity Stark was a sister to my o ther Grandfather, James Stark.
John Mulkey married a third time a Sarah Williams.
I, like you, would like to find out where John Mulkey came from and who his parents were.

Sara,John Lewis, according to "The Mulkeys of America" was born close to Nashville, TN. H e died as you probably know at Yoncalla, Oregon at the home of Charles Applegate. I have no t checked out this fact but William Miller, husband of Sarah Mulkey had a cousin Malinda Mill er married to a Charles Applegate that was in Oregon. Isabella Mulkey was born in Rutherfor d County, TN on the 5 May 1807. Charlotte Mulkey was born in Rutherford County, TN on 15 Ju n 1815.War of 1812, Information provided by Grace Farmer, obtained from the war archives a t Washington D.C. :He enlisted as John Mulky in 2nd Regiment Mounted Gunman, Western Teness ee Militia, 1812.

South Carolina to Jeremiah Stark & Mary King.

She married John Mulkey on 25 July 1847. She died i n 1852 in Howard, MO.Barbara Hobbs Pollack
More on the ancesty of this John:
John Mulkey appears in the 1790 census in Ashe County, North Carolina, if I recall. So does a nother newlywed, James Mulkey. This latter person eventually moved to Jackson County, Missour i, as some of his children did.
Philip Mulkey, who went to Knox Co., KY, was probably a brother of theirs (his children als o went to Missouri).
I believe they were probably the sons of James Mulkey, who was in Ashe Co. (earlier Wilkes) i n the 1770s and 1780s. This James may have been the son of another James, who was in Orange C o., NC, in the 1740s, if I recall, and this latter James was probably the son of John Mulke y (d. 1736).
