A friend in Ireland has informed me of deaths for 2 McMullan's from diary records Aynsworth Pilson kept for Downpatrick, County Down.
One was for December 5, 1846: "Susan (Galway), wid. of Arthur Macmullan, pensr., Bridge-st., 60.
The other for June 10, 1848: "John Macmullan, Bridge-st., shoemaker, 81.
I'm not sure how, or if these McMullan's were related to my own John McMullan, but it does seem possible. My John McMullan was a shoemaker living on Bridge Street when he married Margaret Orr May 2, 1844 at the Downpatrick Cathedral, and I don't have birth info for him. In 1845 their first son was Arthur, and by 1847 they were in Quebec, Canada.
I do have knowledge of British Military records that could fit the husband of Susan, who was an Arthur McMullan, and for the John McMullan who was a shoemaker.
If anyone happens upon more information from the diaries of Aynsworth Pilson, mentioning any McMullan's or Orr's of Downpatrick, I'd be very interested in knowing about it!!
For anybody that is willing to share the information on Death records obtained from offical sources as LDS, PRONI or church. If need be I will start separate area forums
