There wasn't anyone on the Virginias CD or the Tennessee CD of the 1880 census that matched James McMullon (or variations of the name).
Nor could I find one that fit on the Nat'l Index of the 1880 census.
The 1860 and 1870 census of Giles Co that we have at our FHC is so poor that every other page is entirely unreadable!
