Asa H. Mallory was born about 1819 in New York State the son of Allen “Horace” Sr. & Lucina Mallory.He grewup,in New York State, andwould have been a young man of about 19 years old when he came to Iowa in 1838 with his parents. Asamarried Hannah “Darling” Aug. 19, 1846 in Clayton Co. Iowa.Asa was27, and Hannah 25 years old when they were married. Asa & Hannah had a son Charles E. Mallory born1847-48. Asadeserted Hannah, and went to the gold rush around 1850, not many years after they were married.Hannah never told Charles much about his father. In the Josephine County, Oregon 1860 & 1880 census I was told there is listed Asa Mallory b. 1819 N.Y. that is probably him.If anyone has any info. that might help in any way, Please let me know. Thank You.
