The traditions of "The Descendants of James (Eli) McMullen and Mary Nancy Vick", say that their ancestor was one of three brothers who emigrated from Scotland just before the Revolution, in which James McMullen fought for the Patriots. After the war he and his wife Sarah Minton settled in Georgia, where their sons William and James were born in 1782 and 1788. The McMullen brothers married sisters Lavinia and Rebecca Fain, and James was the father of seven sons, four of whom settled in Hillsborough, now Pinellas County, Florida. James's fourth son Daniel, who was born in 1825, built "a magnificent three-room log house" there at Largo, where the descendants of the seven sons held their first annual reunion on the 4th of July 1925. Though not formally organised with a regular subscription, the Florida McMullen reunions are always amongst the biggest of annual clan events, with some 450 attending the 70th anniversary in 1995.

The society was founded in 1951. They meet on the first Sunday in August every year at Louisville for a church service and lunch. Up to 120 or more sometimes attend informally at the annual reunions, where voluntary donations are collected rather than an official subscription.

The Chlann an Taillear are the descendants of John McMillan "The Tailor" who emigrated from Ireland to Virginia, USA, in 1760. He founded the settlement of McMullen in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, from whence some of his sons - who generally adopted the spelling McMullan - travelled to Georgia and elsewhere in the south and west of the USA. The McMullens/McMullans in recent years have come together in a loosely organised society that publishes a frequent newsletter, and holds holds regular reunions in Virginia and elsewhere; but has no formal membership roll or subscription.
