Have located Ella's mother (Ellen Egan Mullin) in the 1871 Canada census. She's listed as 52 years old at the time, Irish Catholic, and living in Toronto West, St. Andrew's Ward. Assume her husband Richard is deceased, or he (not Ellen) would be listed as head of household. I've sent to the LDS Library, Salt Lake City for the actual census sheet, and expect it shortly. It'll breakdown members of the household, ages, places of birth, occupations, etc. Also located the Ellen Egan birth info in Ireland (through the LDS data base) - born 1820 in Kilbride, Kings Co., Ireland to Thomas and Catherine Egan.

When I was looking up your email address (in my Ella Mullins Thorn file), found my note that I was going to send you a hard copy of Ella Mullin's death certificate. Mea coupa! Will snail mail it out to you promptly.
I scoured manifests of the eleven 1823/1825 Peter Robinson settler's ships. Following are the Egans and Mullins listed. They all ended up living in Ontario's Peterborough region, where our Canadian family "rooted." I included a Mulane, since (I believe) it's an alternate spelling for the Mullin(s) name. In fact, Mulane is noted (as such) for the first Mullin's family below.
The 1906 Thomas Egan death notice (at age 83) you sent me corresponds with the Thomas and Frances Egan family on the 1825 Brunswick passage. Note they had a one year old (at the time) child with them also named Thomas. No doubt the same Thomas of your 7/20/06 Peterborough obit. I have LDS obtained info on (I believe) our Ellen Egan (Ella Mullin's mother), born about 1820 to Thomas and Catherine Egan in Kilbride. Kings Co., Ireland. Then found Ellen Mullin in Ontario's 1871 census (LDS microfilm # 0349172); age 52, born in Ireland, living in Toronto West. It fits well! Unfortunately, it doesn't gel with any of the Egan families (below) who came to Canada with Peter Robinson. Plus, Ella Mullin's father (Richard Mullin) isn't apparent on the (below) manifests either. Highly probable our Irish lineage came later (in the 1840s) on the "coffin" ships during the mass potato famine migration. Any further thoughts, Ginny?
