Dear Jane,
I am so glad to hear from you. I'll tell you what I know.
Your grandfather Bruce was my grandfather's brother.

Me: Marie Jane Mullis Savoy
Father: James Onis Mullis, Sr b. 20 Jul 1929 New Salem, Union County, NC. d. 17 Mar 1999 Charlotte, NC. He married Edna Marie Wright Mullis 6 Apr 1951. She was b. 4 May 1925, Charlotte. She is still living in Charlotte.

My father was an only child.
His father: Raymond Onis Mullis b. 10 Jul 1908, d. 17 Jan 1993 Concord, NC. He married in 1928 and then divorced 9 Nov 1944 my grandmother: Margaret Faye Purser b. 21 Jul 1911 Union Cty, NC. She died 28 Oct 1994.

Later, they both married other people, but did not have children.

R. O. Mullis's parents:
Julius Bartley Mullis b. 1 May 1881, d. 25 Nov 1921. He married @ 1900. I do not know the date.
Oelie Tinnie Williams b. 1 Oct 1882, d. 25 Nov 1921. They were killed in an auto accident. My grandfather went to live with his grandparents. Anyway, their children:
Girl Mullis,
Wilma Mullis m. ? McIntyre
Emma Jane Mullis b. 27 Apr 1907 Monroe, NC. d. 3 Aug 1985 Tucson, AZ. (Emma was the 2nd wife to Margaret Faye Purser's Father, Zeb Vann Purser/Pusser. Together they had several children.
Raymond Onis Mullis
Efird Joe Mullis who lived his life in California.
Leila Mullis or married (Robert?) Knox [I am not looking at my notes on this one.]
Bruce Mullis

Parents of Julius Bartley Mullis according to my grandfather:
Ed Mullis
Elam Morgan

They had: Julius Bartley, Joney Mullis, David Mullis, Seif Mullis, Richard Mullis, Sarah Mullis, Tinnie Mullis, and Matt Mullis.

Parents of Oelie Tinnie Williams according to my grandfather:
J. Riley Williams b. 25 Jun 1856, d. 22 Apr 1913
Oelie M. Griffith b. 4 Jul 1855, d. 26 Jul 1920.

They had: Oelie Tinnie, Jack Williams, Atlas Williams, Jim Williams, John Williams, Mary Jane Williams, Lydi Ann Williams, and Cora Williams.

This is all that I know. Oelie M. Griffith is buried with her husband J. Riley Williams at Meadow Creek Primitive Baptist Church, Locust, NC.

I really wish I knew more. I have been successful with some of my other lines.
