Shared note
In the 1920 US Federal Census for Nineveh, Johnson, Indiana, 36-year-old Indiana-born farmer William and his 32-year-old Indiana-born wife Hattie N [Luyster] Mullendore have in their household their Indiana-born children, 9-year-old Marion J [sic] and 7-year-old William O, and Hattie's mother 64-year-old Indiana-born widow Hattie D [McCaslin] Lyster [sic]. Marian and William O have attended school in the past year. Everyone can read, write and speak English. Everyone's parents were born in Indiana except Hattie D Luyster as her father was born in Kentucky and her mother in New Jersey. William seems to be renting the land he farms from his father 63-year-old Andrew Mullendore who is living next door and does own a farm, but is not engaged in farming. Obituary from Find a Franklin Evening Star 21 Jan 1921 A. O. MULLENDORE DIES SUDDENLY AT FARM HOME LEADING FARMER IN UNION NEIGHBORHOOD FOR 40 YEARS Andrew O. Mullendore, for forty years a leading farmer of the Union neighborhood, died suddenly at his farm home just south of the Union Christian Church Monday afternoon at 4 o'clock. Mr. Mullendore had been at the barn caring for stock and suffered from a severe pain over his heart. He went to the house and told Mrs. Mullendore he was ill. He seemed to get better and she hurriedly called Dr. Oran Province by telephone. Dr. Province drove to the Mullendore farm in about ten minutes but before he arrived Mr. Mullendore suffered another attack and died a few moments after Dr. Province reached his side. It was the first attack of heart trouble Mr. Mullendore ever had had, according to members of his family. Mr. Mullendore was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Mullendore and was born Nov. 1, 1856 in Shelby county. With his parents he came to Johnson county in 1860 when his father settled on the farm now operated by Otis Mullendore. They were pioneers of the Union neighborhood and Mr. Mullendore spent his entire life in the community. On Sept. 19, 1881 he was married to Addah Tulley of Bartholomew county and they went to housekeeping on the farm where Mr. Mullendore died. During these forty years he built up one of the finest farms in the county. It comprises 207 acres of splendid land which has been carefully and scientifically cultivated. Mr. Mullendore devoted his life to farm and his home. He was also an active member of the Union church and had served as deacon several terms. Besides his wife, Mr. Mullendore is survived by a son, William T., and a daughter, Mrs. Millard Moore. He also leaves four brothers, Otis and Louis of Franklin, and John and Edward of Indianapolis, and a sister, Mrs. James Pritchard of Franklin. Funeral services will be held at the home Thursday morning at 10:30 o'clock with burial in the mausoleum at Greenlawn cemetery. Mr. Mullendore was a quiet, unassuming man but he had the respect and confidence of a wide circle of friends. He was regarded as a wise business man. News of his sudden death brought forth many personal tributes to his ability as a farmer and his personal industry honesty and thrift.
