Jim & Nettie


My Mother wrote the journaling for this layout on her paternal grandparents, James A. & Jeanetta Llewellyn Mullan. They were born in 1868. My mother grew up close to them and has many fond memories.

"Granddad and Grandma Mullan were married for more than 50 years. They had 4 kids: Russell, Vista, Estel & Ethel (twins). Granddad was a great story teller. Grandma taught me to crochet and many things. She was the queen who sat on the throne (her rocking chair)."
