John McMullan is my 5th great grandfather, he and His son Patrick are buried in Georgia. All others in my line are buried here in Newton County, Mississippi. I have a family book that was researched by Albert McMullan that shows an article from a newspaper stating that John had made this uniform. It is to my delight that I discover it has survived and is in the Smithsonian.
