  • Notes 
    • BIRTH:
      Year of birth would be 1841-1842, according to age (54 years) given in his 1896 Philadelphia death record.
      Consistent with the description of his age ("full age," or over 21 years) in 1877 Marriage Record for Anne Dolin and Michael Mullan. Father named as Michael Mullan. Mother not named. At the time of his marriage, he was resident in Killen, which is likely the nearby townlands of Killen Near and Killen Far. It is therefore likely that he was born somewhere in County Tyrone.

      MARRIAGE:
      Husband of Anne Dolan identified as John Mullen by John Joseph Dolan, a nephew, in informal notes.
      Husband named as Michael Mullen in birth records of their children in Ireland.
      Year of marriage estimated as about 1877, given that first child was born in 1878.
      Full date of 24 August 1877 in 1877 Marriage Record for Anne Dolin and Michael Mullan. Marriage in "Termonamonagan RC CH Parish of Termonamongan." Witnesses were Patrick Lynch and Bernard McNally. Marriage Record obtained from the Irish World Heritage Center (www.rootsireland.ie).
      Image of marriage record in parish register is online at the National Library of Ireland at http://registers.nli.ie/registers/vtls000632975#page/15/mode/1up.

      OCCUPATION:
      Carpenter (1877 Marriage Record, 1881 Philadelphia City Directory, 1885 Philadelphia City Directory)
      According to family oral history related by John J. Dolan (1884-1971) to Margaret Dolan Callaghan, Michael Mullen made coffins.

      ADDRESSES:
      Killen, County Tyrone, Ireland (1877 Marriage Record)
      3714 Elm Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (1881 Philadelphia City Directory) [note: this is the same address as 3714 Wallace Street, and was the address of his sister-in-law, Ellen Dolan McGuire]
      In 1883, Micahel and Anne's son, John Mullen, was baptized at St. Teresa of Avila RC CHurch, now closed, but then located at South Broad St. and Catharine St., in South Philadelphia. This likely indicates that they were living in that area around that time.
      3714 Wallace Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (1885 Philadelphia City Directory) [note: this was the address of his sister-in-law, Ellen Dolan McGuire]

      DEATH:
      Full date of 17 March 1896 given in two death certificates for Michael Mullen in the "Pennsylvania, Philadelphia City Death Certificates, 1803-1915" database on www.familysearch.org. The address given is 3814 Wallace Street, Philadelphia. Cause of death was cancer of the rectum.

      BURIAL:
      Full date of 21 March 1896 given in death certificates for Michael Mullen in the "Pennsylvania, Philadelphia City Death Certificates, 1803-1915" database on www.familysearch.org.
      Full date of 20 March 1896 given in records of Holy Cross Cemetery, but these dates are often off by a day or so from the actual dates listed on death certificates.

      ADDITIONAL POTENTIAL RECORDS:
      Two other Philadelphia City Directories after 1885 list a Michael Mullen, carpenter. These are the 1888 and 1895 Directories. Both give an address of 1128 Milton Street. This is an address in the Mount Airy section of Philadelphia.
