Surnames: Mullikin
I am looking for informaiton on the family of Thomas Alexander Mullikin. I know he was married to Phyllis Bonghi and they had one son, Richard Edgar, Thomas' father was also Richard Edgar and I think his mother was barbara Moore. That is about all I have from this end. Can anyone help to fill in the blanks? I think Thomas is descended somehow from James Mullikin but I have a lot of missing space. Any help will be appreciated.

I am also researching the Mullikin/Mulliken/Mulligan family which is on my mothers side. My great grandmother is Ada Geneva Mulligan/Mullikin and one of her siblings was Richard Edgar Sr. Their parents were Richard Thomas and Barbara Ellen. I have a bit more info in addition if you like. It can be tough to find this family with so many last name changes listed due to how they were interpreted and written down. Would love to trade any info.

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.
