Biographical Souvenir of the State of Texas, page 623[#247]J.M. Mullens was born in Franklin County, Alabama, March 2, 1846. He was reared on his father’s farm in that county, until the fall of 1856, when his father moved to north Mississippi, where he lived until the war. He and his father enlisted in the war in 1862, joining the Confederate service as members of Company B, Sixteenth Mississippi Cavalry. J.M. Served through northern Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee, taking part in the engagements in these States. At the close of the war he returned to his native county and went to farming. On January 2, 1866, he married Miss D. B. Jobe of Tishomingo county, Mississippi. To this union were born six children, namely – Carrie B., Mansel G., John W., Tolbert F., Walter C. and Opie D.
In 1869 Mr. Mullens moved to Texas, settling in Grayson county, on the waters of Cedar creek, where he engaged in farming for about fifteen years. Afterward he moved to his present place, four miles southeast of Sherman, where he has continued farming, and in addition thereto he has erected a steam cotton-gin, which he has conducted very successfully for the past six years.
July 4, 1879 Mr. Mullens lost his wife, and December 23 following his youngest child, Opie D. He subsequently married Miss Virginia Lambert, of Grayson county, who has borne to him two children – Sallie Belle and Dellie.
Mr. Mullens has never aspired to anything beyond his chosen calling as a farmer. At this time he has been more than ordinarily successful, and stands well as a citizen of his county, is prominent among his brother farmers as a strong Alliance man, and is also an influential member of the Christian Church.
