How do you correctly spell the plural and plural possessive of the last name Mullins?

0

Mrs. Mullins is my teacher. She is helping us learn about possessive and plural nouns. Mrs. Mullins's husband has a mother named Mrs. Mullins, too. There is a total of three Mrs. Mullinses in my teacher's family. They like to plan family parties and celebrations. The Mullinses' parties are joyous events!

See example:

For plural possessive, names ending with 's' you need not add in additional s, such as:

Jesus' mother; James' car; or Mullins' husband

Jesus, James, and Mullins are not plural possessives. Each is singular: Jesus's mother, James's car, Mrs. Mullins's husband. If Mr. and Mrs. Jones, the Joneses, bought a dog for their family, it would be the Joneses' dog. "Joneses" is plural. The "Joneses' dog" shows plural possession.
