General Notes: Husband - William Henry MELLEN
=================================================================================================

gina,
william henry mellen was the son of grenville mellen, who was in turn a son of william
pepperrell mellen, who came south from dover, nh as don correctly states. grenville, born mar 6
1843, married very young (he was very tall for his age), had two children, volunteered in the
confederate army, and was killed at the battle of seven pines in 1862. grenville had two sons,
so william henry had a brother named grenville. i believe this brother grenville is the
grenville who lived on the mississippi gulf coast. [Martin Wehling]
