Looking for additional info on my gg-grandfather, John MALONE (name is spelled MELLOWN in mariage records). The following is basically all I know of him. 1) found on 1870 census - Polk Co., TX 2) born ca. 1840, possibly in TX 3) married Charlotte Elizabeth GAY, 25 Dec 1867, Nacogdoches Co., TX
Their children: William Calvin MALONE ('Cal') b. Apr 1865, Elbert Eli MALONE ('Eb') b. 28 Sep 1867, and Solomon MALONE b. Mar 1870.
Charlotte Elizabeth marries again in 1876 (to James OWEN/OWENS, and again in 1886 to John CARTER). New information indicates that the couple may have split-up. Solomon was unknown to the desecendants of William and Elbert, so he either died young or went with John if there was a seperation. Descendants of William heard that William and Elbert were seperated for a time as children. Descendants of Elbert heard that John had returned on horseback, swooped Elbert up and carried him off. Elbert said that was the last he ever saw of his mother.
So, what happened to John MALONE? Did he remarry and have another family? Also, who were his parents? Thanks for any information.
