Mulligan family in Maine

I am looking for any persons who have  Mulligan relations in the Island Falls, Crystal, Haynesville (Aroostook County) area.  I'm having a lot of problems with my great-grandfather Melvin M. Mulligan.  He died approx. 1923 (per family lore, in a lumbering accident,) however, I cannot find anything on Ancestry.com regarding his birth, supposedly New Hampshire, or death.  He was married to Rose Glidden and had several children, one of whom is my maternal grandmother.  Any help?
