About Mulvany Street--My daughter & husband visited Knoxville about 5 years ago and saw the street name sign. They took a one-day side trip and when they returned, the sign had been replaces with "Convention Way." So much for respect for history.

My Mulvany brick wall is William Mulvany who died 1814 in New Orleans (War of 1812). Hia wife was Sally Jordan, believed to be Cherokee as the Mulvany's were traders and a family connection was needed to trade with the Cherokees. William's son, John W. Mulvany (not the John Wesley Mulvany who migrated to Illinois) sold the Knoxville property and moved the family to Iowa traveling with the Callens, Wakefields, Cates and other families. Several of the children migrated to Oregon around 1850.

I have been searching for William's connection to the rest of the Mulvany's in Tenenssee. I have seen the name spelled Mulvania as well as Mulvaney and Mulvany.
