I believe MAHALY's surname may be BLANKENSHIP. Early Blankenship lines found in VA(WV) as early as 1714, several of which migrated to IL. Blankenship/Totty m. Chesterfield Co, VA, their 4 children may have migrated to Clark Co, IL...know female did for sure. I have no data for Blankenship's b. in 1800's. Hope this info will be helpfull.
