Alexander Mulholland was born in Dorigiven, County Derry, Ireland, May 10, 1803 and came to America in 1825, settling near Patterson, New Jersey, the same year where he was employed in the Rodgers locomotive works for seven years. In 1833, on March 15, he was married to Margaret Malcom, who was also a native of Dorigiven, Ireland, born in 1808, her parents moving to Scotland when she was a little girl and coming to America in 1829, settling in Patterson, New Jersey, where she became acquainted with her future husband, their marriage following in 1833. There were born to them while they lived in Patterson, four children, Elizabeth, James, Alexander and Martha. In 1840 Mr. Mulholland, with his family came to Rushville, and entered into the employ of Mr. Joseph Hamilton, brother of Mr. Samuel Hamilton, of this city, whose father he had worked for in Ireland for many years. While living in Rushville five more children were born to them, Jane, Sarah, George Hibbin and Mary; Sarah and George Hibbin being twins. Those who survive are James, who lives at Oakland, Illinois; George Hibbin, who lives at Brightwood, Indiana; Elizabeth Lewis, widow of John Lewis of Geneva, this county, and Jane Redshaw, widow of Ashland, Illinois. About 1850 he moved on the farm of Isaac Arnold about six miles northeast of Rushville, living there until about 1855, coming to Shelbyville in August of that year with the expectation of moving to Illinois, but the late Alfred Major, between whom and deceased there existed the deepest friendship, persuaded him to go down on Flat Rock, where, liking the country, he purchased a little farm, living there until about 1877, when he moved here, where his aged wife died some six years ago.
