Mullins’ youngest sister, told how he came walking home after the war from an easterly direction she and some of her sisters were out on the porch. All at once there appeared a heavily bearded man, shaggily dressed, with no shoes except ragged leather pieces barely holding together, whom she had never seen before. She screamed for her mother, who asked the man who he was. “Why, Ma, don’t you know me?” It seems he had a hard time trying to make his identity known to his family, but when he finally did they gave him a hearty welcome.
