Mary W. Mullis Little
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 6, 1821
Death: Dec. 6, 1870

Wife of Farrington Little (Controversy over whether she was a Polk or a Mullis)


This should clear up the controversy over her last name.
Per PPC (#47065016)

(Mary was the daughter of Soloman Mullis and his wife, Edith. This is proved in the North Carolina Estate files 1663-1979 (online at familysearch.org) under Union County Estates, look under Mullis, A. J., 1862. A. J. was one of the brothers of Mary. He had died, and as he was unmarried, his estate was left to his siblings. Jacob C. Mullis was the administator, and a case was filed in 1873, naming all of the heirs, and although Mary W. Little and her husband, Ferrington Little, were deceased at this time, they are named in these estate papers, as are their surviving children.
