Ercel MULLINS was the son of my g-grandfather Alexander MULLINS (1870-1946)
and Laura Bell HALL (1882-1943). I found Alexander and Laura in the 1910 &
1920 Knott Co. Census books published by the Letcher Co. Genealogical and
1910 Knott Co. KY Census, page 244

Family lore has it that Alex MULLINS came to Beaver Creek, Knott Co., KY,
in about 1886 when he was 16 years old. His sister was Nancy MULLINS
(1867-1945), who married Dr. Giles SHORES (abt 1855-bef1945) in Mullen, WV.
Nancy then became a midwife and was known as Granny SHORES.
I am stuck at Alex and Nancy MULLINS parents. Who were they? I believe
they are somehow related to Andrew Jackson MULLINS -- who founded Mullens
WV. But, no proof. I was told that Alex MULLINS and Nancy MULLINS also
had two brothers (Jack and Harrison) and a sister Eliza.
Alex MULLINS death certificate lists that he was born in WV and the son of
Nancy (MULLINS) SHORES death certificate lists that she was the daughter of
Rachael MULLINS and born in WV.
Please contact me if you know anything about ANY of these ancestors.
