Is this line related to Isaac Malott in Cincinnati, Ohio? Isaac married Caroline Genoways in Clermont county, Ohio in 1820. Caroline's sister Ruth married a John Stevens in the 1840's, who is somehow related to a James Stephens of Lawrence county, Indiana. James was in Lawrence county in 1820 and married there in 1821(second marriage) and then moved to Martin county, Indiana, where he died in the 1840's.
Isaac/Caroline and John/Ruth all stay in Cincinnati(Hamilton county).
I am wondering if Otho and Isaac were related and if they knew James or any other Stephens in the area.
