Bio and Links
Bio Photo An interest in local history resulted in a collection of biographies and obituaries for a book I published containing names of settlers in the area who happen to be members of Western Star Lodge No. 240 AF and AM and an unpublished manuscript about officers of the city police department. This led to many treks through local and regional cemeteries which prompted my interest in geneology.
If you find errors or changes necessary in any of my entries, please feel use the edit tab on the memorial and send me the information. I will gladly answer any and all inquiries.
I am interested in family names Godwin, Heubner, Reynolds, Wittenmyer and Buckles from south and west central Indiana and Kentucky.
If you find a relative (within Find-a-Grave guides) I will gladly transfer management of any of my entries. To avoid further errors and mismatched information, however, I will promptly honor only requests through use of the edit tab on the memorial. A family member should maintain these and enter additional information.

Memorial John Wallace Mulliken #19789610
I found this obituary in The Pantagraph, Bloomington, Illinois, 25 June 1926


Obituary reads…

J. W. Mulliken, Aged Champaign Merchant, Is Summoned Beyond

Urbana, June 24 - (Special) John Wallace Mulliken, a pioneer business man of Champaign, died at his residence, 513 West Green Street, early this morning after an illness of about two weeks duration.

Mr. Mulliken was born at Cooperstown, New York, on March 9, 1849, and came with his parents to West Urbana in June 1866. He had lived for more than 70 years in this community.

In 1876 Mr,Mulliken married Josephine Danforth, to whom was born two children A. D. Mulliken of Champaign, Lawyer and Mrs. Phoebe Storey of Seattle, Washington. He afterward adopted his grandniece, now Mrs. June Polk, of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Mrs. Mulliken died in 1909. Mr. Mulliken afterward, in 1911 married Miss Jean Agnew. He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Jean Mulliken, the three children above named and also by seven grandchildren.

Hello, I saw where you left flowers on my great grandmother's find a grave site. Are we related? I have recently started researching this side of the family and I keep hitting road blocks. I would love to compare notes if you have any on this line.

Thanks,
Mary
