John McMullan is my Gr, Gr, Gr, Gr, Gr, Gr, Grandfather on my Guilford County North Carolina mothers side (Mary McMullan). I too have seen documentation and cited it in the McCluskey My Heritage Tree, that John came from Ireland to to Colonial Virginia as a sail maker and tailor. He is documented as fighting with George Washington at Valley Forge, Pa., as well as, making G.Washington's uniform during the Revolutionary War. This is wonderful family history and I would love to hear of further evidence to this apparent factual info.
