DEATH of a PROMINENT CITIZEN -- Captain John McMULLIN, long a resident of San Joaquin county, and a highly respected gentleman, died at his residence in Castoria township, at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon, of typhoid fever. He was a native of Maryland, aged about 45 years. He came to California in June, 1849, and settled first on Wood's Creek, Tuolumne county, and in 1854 removed to San Joaquin, where he has since resided. Captain McMULLEN was a gentleman of high character and sterling worth. He leaves a wife and 9 children to mourn his death. The sadness occasioned by the loss of a loving husband and an indulgent father is shared by the community at large, who deeply sympathize with the family in their bereavement. The funeral takes place from the First Presbyterian Church in this city, at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon.

SF CALL 9 August 1906
It is is announced that the wedding of Mrs. Rebecca McMullin Belvin and Francis J. Heney, which was to have been celebrated next month, will not take place until the end of the year. Mrs. Belvin is in Arizona, spending the summer as the guest of her sister, Mrs. E. B. Perrin, and will not return for some weeks yet. Mr. Heney is in town for a few days on a brief business trip, but is returning almost immediately to Portland. He will complete the land fraud cases in which he is engaged there and will be compelled to make a trip to Washington as well; so it will be the end of November at least before he will be able to return here for his wedding.
