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.

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.
