This family is an importation from North Carolina, and a good importation it is - would like to
have several others such. The first of the name in the county was the late Colonel William S. Mullins,
followed a few years later by his brother, the late Dr. James C Mullins, and from these two brothers
came all by that name now in the county. Their parents were Fayetteville, N. C. people - names not know.
It is said their father was a merchant in Fayetteville, and did not succeed in making a fortune for his
children - only enough to educate them - three sons, William S. James C. and Henry; one daughter, as
known the to the writer, Ida, who became the wife of E. B Owens of this county and another daughter,
who became the wife of a Mr. McNeill, who finally settled in Horry.
