Occupation and any other info
« on: Thursday 08 April 21 09:38 BST (UK) »
I have been trying for years to find any information on my family McMullan or McMullen in Antrim.  I have found that my 3x Great Grandfather Patrick McMullen b.March 1813 in Antrim, his occupation was a Flax Dealer in 1862.  Firstly I'd like to know what a Flax Dealer did (I presume sells the flax) or where he did it. If I can find any information on this point it may point me in the direction of any other information on the family. He died in Lancashire in 1881. His parents were Patrick McMullen b.1791 believed to have been in the Battle of Waterloo and Sara Ann Walsh married 28 Sep 1823, in St Patrick's, Belfast city.
Any information would be amazing. :)

You've posted on ANTRIM RESOURCES & OFFERS which is not for queries so this post could easily be overlooked. Just click on 'report to moderator' so it can be moved to the main ANTRIM board.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

Thank you Aghadowey, I have done what you suggest.  Sometimes not clear as to which board to post on.
