These extracts were taken by Cathy Wood Osborn from the McLennan County, Texas Marriage Records occurring before 1900.  The dates are presented in the same format as they appear in the records – m/d/y.  I have identified as many as possible and would appreciate any information about any of these persons.

*James Mullens and Thomas Mullens were sons of William Thomas Mullens and Sarah “Sallie” (Potts) Mullens.  The Mullens family came from Virginia to Wayne County, Kentucky to Madison County, Mississippi Territory to Franklin County, Alabama.

** Shepard Mullens probate documents call Mary E. Fuller his step-daughter. In the probate documents of Agnes Mullens, she is named as daughter of Agnes. It is surmised that Shepard and Agnes may have had a common law arrangement, and Mary E. was their child. More research is needed to clarify these relationships.
