About Me

My name is Holly Sharp. I'm from North West Indiana. I'm a wife and mother of three. My parental grandmother Mary Florence Taylor was an Irish woman born in Waltham Mass. Her father was from Ireland and her grandfather William McMullen was from Tyrone County, Northern Ireland.

Though my grandmother was born in the States she could speak Gaelic and because of her I've always had a life long passion for our family's roots.

About Me

My great great grandparents were John and Jane (McMullen) Peterson. Jane emigrated to Ontario, Canada with her parents John and Margaret (Dudgeon) McMullen. I would love to continue leaning about John and Margaret's history in Ireland. Where they lived, their family history, etc.

About Me

I trace my McMullen heritage back to my seventh great-grandfather, born in 1673 in Antrim, Ireland. My maternal grandmother, Nellie McMullen had strong genes, providing me with my dashing Irish good looks!

My wife traces her Irish heritage back as far as Prince Iar Mac Dedad O'Haongus of Ireland in 160 BC.

About Me

Hello, my name is Russell "Rusty" Brown.

I live in Portland, OR, USA. I have always been interested in my genealogy. I grew up in a southwestern city of Oregon, called Myrtle Point. Growing up we used to have McMullen/Panter family reunions in the beach city of Bandon in one of the county parks. In more recent years I have been curious from what side of my family I have had the curiosity and now creative side of carving Celtic Art. I am not sure if is from Scottish, Irish or English.

 

I descent from

David McMullen born in Ireland in 1800- his wife Ellen Strong born in 1795 died in 1880 in Ireland.

 

their son and his wife

James McMullen born in Cork, Cork, Ireland in 1826 died in Bloomfield, Huron Co., Michigan, USA in 1919- Susanah Hanah born 1838 Canada and died Bloomfield, Huron Co., Michigan, USA in 1914

their son and his wife

Richard Lewis McMullen born in Tara, Ontario, Canada in 1881, died in Myrtle Point, Coos Co., OR, USA in 1956-Mary Ella Panter, born in 1887 in Parkersburg, Coos Co., OR, USA died in 1978 in Coquille, Coos Co., OR, USA

 

their daughter

Dora Belle McMullen Train. born in Myrtle Point, Coos Co., OR in 1920 died the day after her 29th birthday in 1949 from Cancer. Leaving behind 4 children, her husband, Russell Train to mourn her loss.

 

My mother Miriam Marie (Cole) Train was one of those children. She and her sister Charlotte were from a previous marriage of Dora's. Russell adopted them 3 months prior to Dora's death.

 

I did the ancestry.com DNA test. I am waiting results.

About Me

My GG Grandparent's married at the Down Cathedral (Church of Ireland) in Downpatrick, County Down, Ireland May 2, 1844. They were John McMullan or McMullen and Margaret Orr. Their first son, Arthur was born in Downpatrick in 1845. In 1847 my Great Grandfather, William John was baptized at Holy Trinity Cathedral (Anglican) in Quebec City, Quebec (John signed this baptism as "McMullian", so perhaps that's the spelling he preferred). Unfortunately, I don't know John's fate. The last glimpse of him was an 1850 Montreal directory where he is shown as a shoemaker.

At some point William John changed the spelling of the name to McMillan. It's possible he did this to differentiate himself from other William McMullen's in Wellington County, Ontario.

The family had lived in Montreal, Quebec; Kingston, Ontario; Fergus & Palmerston, Ontario; and by 1879 William John relocated to Breckenridge, Minnesota and later to St Paul, Minnesota. William John was the personal conductor for James Jerome Hill who built the railroad from The Great Lakes to the Pacific Ocean. In 1913, William John started the Great Northern Railway Veteran's Association which was a social outlet for retirees, and helped with retirement funds. He was President from 1913 up to his death in 1930.

William John McMillan Jr, (my Grandfather) was born at Fergus in 1869. My Father, William John McMillan III was born at Gladstone, OR in 1904. My Brother, William John McMillan IV, and I were born in the mid 1940's in Oregon City, Oregon. By 1947, our family relocated to Camas, Washington, and I still live in the general area.

Glad to be part of this group!! I have had the Y-DNA 67 marker test, and am hopeful to eventually tie into more definitive information for my Irish McMillan roots.

I've also had autosomal DNA tests at ancestry.com; 23andMe; and Family Finder at Family Tree DNA. The free website gedmatch.com is a good place to compare chromosomes. My gedmatch numbers are: F260182; M142720 amd A176526

MacMullen is my mothers family name and the surname I was given at birth in lieu of my fathers Welsh name of Jones.

I served six years in the US Navy and am presently a Staff Sergeant in the Florida Army National Guard in a cavalry unit. I spent a year in Iraq.

I have a B.A. in History with a Minor in Anthropology have plans on eventually getting a job teaching fulltime (history of course).

I love reading, books, antiques, the outdoors, and martial arts. I have been studying martial arts since I was 13 and presently practice Japanese swordsmanship, Kendo, and Aikido. I also scuba dive and run long distance.

About Me

I live in Pennsylvania withy my wife and two children. I am an IT consultant for a large global consulting firm. I've only traced my line of McMullin back to around 1847 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania where my great great grandfather, Alexander (Mc) Mullin was born according to his marriage record in Philadelphia. Family lore states that our Mullin family were McMullin at one time and came from Ireland. It appears that Alexander was the one who dropped the 'Mc' when he joined the Union army at the age of 14 as there are records of him in his regiment as both McMullin and Mullin. Looking forward to the day when I discover when my family came to America from Ireland and from where.

About Me

Our family came from Cloontra in Clare. We are MILLANES but our name is part of Maolain, Mullane etc derivations as well. All different variations of the spelling are our lot too. We can trace our lot back to around 1700's with some certainty but it gets fuzzy after that. Hope that we can find out more. It is said, that Dan OÇonnell had a mother who was a O'Millane~! Family left Ireland in 1850's and came to the gold fields here in Australia. Large families are descended from them.
