Still looking for information on Marion Vigneau Mullette. Looking for mother, father and/or siblings. Any help is appreciated.

I have the following information:

Marian Vigneau Mullette was a distinguished teacher of piano, organ, and voice in Nashville, Tennessee. He was born in London, England, on December 11, 1872, of French parents. It was stated in his obituary in The Commercial Appeal of Memphis, Tennessee, and in a previous newspaper article in New Orleans, Louisiana, that before coming to America, Professor Mullette was widely known in England and France, and that his reputation as a choirmaster and organist was firmly established in both of these countries. He had studied with the leading masters of London and Paris, as well as having had charge of two of the larger and better-known choirs in both England and the United States. He started his musical career as choirboy in Worcester Cathedral, England. He graduated from the Royal College of London with honors and then continued his musical education with the following famous teachers: Sir John Stainer, the organist of St. Paul'S Cathedral in London, a musician and composer of "The Crucifixion"; Sir William Best, of Liverpool; and Randeggo, the famous London singing master. Later, he went to the Paris Conservatory of Music and studied under M. Salome, the leading French organist. In his years of study he acquired an intimate knowledge of the organ, including its mechanism and construction. After many years as organist of the Holy Trinity Church in London, Mr. Mullette came to America. He served as organist of St. Matthews Episcopal Church, Jersey City, New Jersey, and then went to the important position of choirmaster and organist of Old St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City.
