Thank you so much. By using Norman Mully in Ancestry I confirmed his mother was Sophronia but I never saw where his obituary named her? May I ask where you saw this...in the newspaper article you suggested #2 Old Fulton New York did not name her. Did you see another obituary? Working from the census material I know Norman was born in NY in 1822 so husband of Sophronia had to be alive and in the 1880 census Norman states his father came from England. In the 1830 census (when Norman would be about 8) there was a Jeremiah Mully in Troy, Renssalear, NY which I am researching....Sophronia and all the John White family lived in that area in later censuses. Jeremiah Mully is not there in 1840; (nor anywhere else...dead?) also I am trying immigration records for Jeremiah, but so far no luck. Please continue with your good research and thank you, Janice. I look forward to your reply!
