I am trying to find information about Mary O'Malley. I think she was born around 1858 in Minnesota due to the fact that a census report from 1880 has her born there. However, family lore is that her parents died on a ship from Ireland. So maybe her mother died shortly after giving birth??? Same report shows Mary as a servant working at a hospital (Texas Institute of Learning for the Blind) in Austin, TX. In 1883 she marries Samuel Payne and their home was in Travis County, TX. Children were Samuel, Edgar, Myrtle, Gracie, Otis, Hettie, and Ralph Payne.
