I have some additional information about the lineage of Catherine Malott.My connection is that I am related to the
McAlexander's.My ggg grandmother was Margaret McAlexander, who married my ggg grandfather, Reuben Harris.My Harris line came to Jackson Co., MO in 1830 from Patrick Co., VA. Your line ofMalott's whom I have discovered and I know died in Platte Co. seem to all be buried in one of the following two cemeteries both very near the south end of the KCI Airport in the greater Kansas City area:Hampton Cemetery and Rush (Brush) Creek Cemetery.You would also be interested, I suspect, in the fact that a third cemetery has recently been found in the same area, where some McAlexander-Harris'es were buried.For more information on this latest discovery, go to the McAlexander GenForum site, and see several very recent articles that I have written regarding this new cemetery site, and other bits of information on the McAlexander-Harris connections.
