  1. Robert Lewis Malone father of Tyre Reeves Malone (wife Martha Hendricks) had about 9 children. 2 of those are special to me. Walter Hill Malone (b 02-22-1888-1967) and his brother Luther Gilmore Malone. At Luther's wedding to Maud Davidson, Walter met Maud's sister Dessie Delora Davidson (b1897-1981). They also married, July 30, 1915 or as grannyused to say exactly 9 months AND 5 days before the birth of their first child (grover leslie malone) So Luther's brother Walter married Maud's sister Dessie.

    I have double cousins! My father is Walter's youngest son, Howard Hill Malone (1927-1996) and my brother was his only son, Howard Hill Malone Jr. (03-06-1949 d.03-16-1994) who has a son, Charles a son Howard Hill Malone III and a daughter Sabrina) I am Mary Alice Malone and I was born on the same day and year as my double cousin Gary Allen Malone. Not only the same age and birthday, but our names rhyme! My great uncle Luther is his grandpa and my grandad walter s his great uncle. Wonder why these Malone lines are hard to

    Walter and Dessie had 5 live births but only 2 children lived. My father was a twin but his sister was too tiny to make it ( premmie in 1927) I am named after her. Mary Alice Malone 1927-1927. They had a set of twin boys, wallace and waller but I can only locate one of their deaths. There s no record of the other, except family memory. I think they buried them together in one casket and somehow waller got noted twice and walace not at all.

    Anyway I have chatted long enough about this. I do have a few more details, but this is what I have certain memory of without getting out the books. I have traced this line to daniel 1620 father of daniel 1642/43 who both came here from Ireland (royalist's escaping Cromwell) I have no proof of their father son relationship other than 2 other's family trees that said that, and knowing the history of the time period, I personally believe it to be true. I am texting this and am not good at that, so please pardon any typos. I will double check all numbers in this before I publish.
