Bill Mullins

The 1900 Census shows the Hewitt family, including 13 year old Joe, living at 1014 High St. in Nashville (now named 6th Ave N). This house was on the NE side of the street, approximately where the small traffic circle on the NE side of Bicentennial Park in Nashville is now located. Note that this was only a block over from the old Sulphur Dell ballpark, which was located between 4th and 5th Ave. Joe's Draft Registration shows that in 1918, he was working as a porter at Grand Central Station in NYC, and that his middle name was William.


Interestingly looks like he lived less than a mile from the former Stars Park.
