2. Oertel, Kay, Email, 29 June 2000. "Mrs. Nancy Jane Adams married my G-granddad Owen M. Mulinex/Mullenix, etc. We do not know who her 1st husband was."

Note-1: Ernest Abicht wrote: "Sorry but I have no pictures of the David Mulinex Family, Germantown, or the cemetery. However i have been to both many times. There is not much left of Germantown anymore and I doubt if the old [Walters] cemetery can be reached by automobile now. It is at least two miles off of the Saltpeter creek road. The church was torn down several years ago and there are several graves without markers if they ever had one."

Note-2: Louisa Josephine Adams Addleman saved a handwritten copy of the David S. Mulinex family in her collection. She seems to have included others on the same page, i.e., "Louisa Josephine Adams was born January 1, 1867 [died Nov. 1955]" & "Rhobirdie Camcedell Adams was born Oct the 10th 1869." Of course, the death of Josie was added by my mother, Mrs. Paul Addleman. The "MULINEX" name was repeated after each given name on the record above but I didn't record it above to save space -- Bob Addleman.
