Rev. William Mulkey was born between 1800 and 1820.  He was a Baptist Minister and had two wives, Anna Prater and Lucy Clemmons.  Said to have had 24 children, Six Sons and Six Daughters by each wife.  Among his children were Martha, Polly, Lizzie, Susan, William Posey Mulkey, Leander Mulkey, Jacob Mulkey, David Mulkey, Columbus Mulkey,  Caleb C.(Doc) Mulkey. Not sure where Rev. William Mulkey ministered but somewhere in the Georgia-Carolinas-Tennessee region.  

Caleb C. (Doc) Mulkey was born in 1848 in Ducktown, Tennessee and married Martha Jane Sims on July 22, 1866 was the oldest son of Rev. William Mulkey.  William Posey Mulkey also born in Ducktown, Tennessee on June 6, 1867.  Columbus Andrew Mulkey was born in Rome, Georgia on June 16, 1875.  

In 1867, Caleb C. (Doc) Mulkey lived near Ducktown.  When William Posey Mulkey was born.  In 1873, Caleb moved his family to Georgia where he worked in the copper smelters.  In 1880 they moved to Texas to where he worked on the railroad and then moved to Colorado in 1882 to work in the mines.  In late 1889 he again moved his family to Mehama, Oregon in search of fertile farm land.  The other brothers; William Posey Mulkey and Columbus Andrew Mulkey soon joined their older brother in Mehama, Oregon.  

William Posey Mulkey was the most unforgettable brother of the three.  His first job was when he was six years old, yielded him five cents for two days work, holding sheep by their heads while they were being sheered.  When he was 15 years old, he cooked for eight men at a mining camp.  After William moved to Oregon in the early 1890's;  the brothers built and operated the first saw mill in Mehama Oregon located on Stout Creek. On his first day at the saw mill,   he worked for just a half day when he lost his leg.  For the rest of his life this talented and courageous man made his own wooden legs.  William Posey was a cabinet maker, carpenter,  blacksmith, prospector, butcher and he made a few caskets for children.  He was a news agent (on trains) when he was young.  He was a wagon wheel maker, miner, shoe repairman, and he owned a "Fix it Shop" in Mehama.  He owned and operated a photo studio, and took pictures of beauty spots, and places of interest in and around the country.  His pictures appeared on what was called "Penny Postcards".  
William Posey Mulkey was Justice of the Peace for over 40 years, and was a Notary public for nearly as long.  He was school teacher for the only school in town (Mehama School) for which he donated the land.  This school still stands today and is now a community center for Mehama.   He was an elder is the Mehama Church for which he also donated the land and helped build the first Church and the current Church which still also stands today.  William Posey Mulkey delivered more than a dozen children, including a set of twins.  He was observer of the U.S. Weather Bureau and Geological Survey approximately 39 years.  There were so many things this talented man could and did do.  He was a Godly man and he lived the Golden Rule.  He was compassionate and no one got a bad break when dealing with him.   

William Posy Mulkey married Clara Rebecca Stout on December 23, 1897 and his brother Columbus married Clara's sister, Mary Elizabeth Stout. 
William Posey Mulkey and Clara Rebecca Stout had five children.  The first of them being Meral Jean born 1869, Lawrence Ivan born 1901, Elisabeth Jane on 1904, William Theodore in 1906 and Claraedna in 1910. When the children started to come along, William built, what was to be a temporary
structure to house his family. In approximately 1870;  but with the arrival of Lawrence it soon became the family home and Williams place of business.  He was a clerk in his Store which housed the Grocery Store, the Blacksmith, Shoe Cobbler, Pharmacy, Livery as well as the Post Office.
