Master builder and merchant John Mifflin was the son of John Mifflin of Kent County (DE) who married Hannah Taylor in 1747. Elected to The Carpenters' Company well before the date of earliest surviving records, Mifflin was totally inactive in Company affairs by the 1760s, although his name appears on the rolls and he is listed as a petitioner for The Company's incorporation in 1790. Unfortunately, there are several John Mifflins in Philadelphia at this time, one of whom was a member of the Common Council and an Alderman with Benjamin Franklin. It is not clear if this is the the same John Mifflin who was a member of the Carpenters' Company.
