In Reply to: STILL SEEKING HELP; McMULLEN in 1820 by Daniel G. Webber of 1612

Some added information that might be a clue, Ross Co. Ohio, David Turnipseed, son of Jacob and Anna Magdalena Miller married Catherine Core September 30, 1819. They then moved to Fayette Co. Ohio. Some of the Turnipseeds went on to McLean Co. Illinois. Also some of the Millers who were connected ended up in Mclean too. These folks were all connected with the McMullens back in Pendleton Co. WV.
What I have on the McMullens is on Worldconnect. the link is

In Morton's history of Pendleton Co. West Virginia he list;
McMullen, Duncan bought Turnipseed place (another Miller connection for me) South Fork Mtn. 1802, paying $266.67 for 100 acres-died 1810 children.- 1 John Polly (Lukens, PA)-old man in 1840. 2. David (wife Margaret Bargerhoff, m. 1812.

In the Pendleton Co. Virginia (now West Virginia) probate records by Heritage Books Inc. pg 48. lists the Will for Duncan McMullen.
Willbook 1 pg 113-115 26, June 1810, Will of Duncan McMullen, son David: a last spring colt. Lan and personalty to be valued and sold as needed to pay my debts. Any remaining to my wife Phoebe and son David. David to stay on the place and take care of his mother. If he chooses to keep the lands at the appraised value and to pay proportional shares, in 9 annual installments to my other children; Daniel, John, James, Joseph, Alexander, Polly, Isaac, William, and Elizabeth. If he does not take it the land is to be sold. David to receive 1 1/2 shares, and 1/2 share to my grandson, Duncan McMullen, son of Alexander. Will proved September 4, 1810.

The McMullens, Turnipseeds, Bargerhoffs, Huffmans, and Millers are often mention together in Bills of Sales and Apprasials in the Probate records and Deedbooks of Pendleton Co. West Virginia. They seem to be connected through several marriages in within the families. for example, Isaac McMullen son of Duncan, married Susannah Huffman, daughter of Bargett Huffman and Mary Eve Miller. David McMullen, son of Duncan, married Margaret Bargerhoff, daughter of Nicholas Bargerhoff and Elizabeth Miller. Elizabeth and Mary Eve are sisters. Another Miller sister, Anna Magdalena married Jacob Turnipseed who sold land to Duncan McMullen in Pendleton Co. WV. The Turnipseeds, Bargerhoffs and some of the Huffmans moved to Ohio about 1820 so this might be the connection to the McMullens your looking for. Hope some of this helps a little. Also in the probate records the McMullens name is spelled various ways, I see McMullin, McMillin etc. Well if you want to contact me, my e mail is I am working on a book about the descendants of John Miller of Pendleton Co. West Virginia, so many of these names come up in my work.
