Ancestry has a Family Group Sheet. Richard Thomas MULLIKIN (2 Apr. 1864, MD - 6 Mar. 1934) m. Barbara Ellen MOORE (25 July 1857, Forestville, PG, MD - 5 July 1924, Washington, DC [or PG, MD?]) Richard T. had wf. Lillie I., 52, in 1930, PG, MD. In 1940, PG, MD, Lillie, 63, was a widow living with a nephew, John J. [HENGLESTER?], 32.

Ada Geneva MULLIKIN / MULLIGAN (15 Mar. 1888, MD - 6 Oct. 1970, PG, MD) m. Howard Arthur SWEENEY (25 Feb. 1886 - 14 Mar. 1950, PG), son of Greenbury SWEENEY (1863 - 1938) & Margaret COOKE (1868 - 1936).

FindaGrave has obit. for Howard Arthur SWEENEY, bu. Forest Memorial Cem., Forestville. He died at Upper Marlboro, survived by wf. & seven ch: Mack SWEENEY, Ada BEALL, Ellen R. COOKSEY (1915 - 1972), Aurelia I. MOORE (1917 - 2001), Margaret E. LEWIS (1919 - 1987), Bessie L. LEWIS, & Annie H. BURROUGHS.

You can probably find exact dates on the Social Security Death Index.

R. A. (16 Jan. 1927 - 30 Aug. 1928, PG, MD)
--three others listed as private-- perhaps Bessie, 8 [m. LEWIS]; Annie, 5 [m. BURROUGHS]; & Howard, 9 mo. on the 1930 census. Annie was 16 in 1940. Howard might have been Mack, 10 in 1940.

Richard was son of John Thomas MULLIKIN (4 Jan. 1841, MD - 14 Sep. 1902, Meadows, PG, MD on FindaGrave, bu. Bells Methodist Cemetery, Camp Springs) & Sophia Ellen R. HUTCHINSON (28 May 1840, MD - 21 Feb. 1926).

John T. was son of Benjamin K. MULLIKIN (1804/5 - 1880) & Nancy / Ann KING (1809 - 1882), married 21 Feb. 1838, PG, MD.

Benjamin was son of Thomas MULLIKIN (1775 - 1850) & Mary KING (1776, St. John's, King Wm. Co., VA - 11 Nov. 1882 {sic}, King Wm., King Wm. Co., VA). Thomas & Mary m. 5 Jan. 1799, PG, MD [verified by online database at Ancestry.com].

Census of 1820 has Thomas MULLIKIN, 31111 - 2111, Piscataway, PG, MD. That indicates a male aged 26 to 44 & a female 45+ with a large household, but the total is listed as 11 free white persons [not twelve].

Abstract of Graves of Revolutionary Patriots has a Thomas MULLIKIN, bu. near Woodwardville, PG, MD. That might be an earlier Thomas, not Thomas born in 1775, the year the war began.
