MALLORY posted by Wendi Scally on Monday, February 26, 2007

Hello, my name is Wendi and I'm in Ohio working on my family tree. I have traced a member to the state of Iowa and was hoping for some help. His name is JAMES MALLORY. He came to Iowa from Meigs Co., Oh in about 1895 with his wife ARABELLE (She goes by BELLE) in 1895 I find him in Vinton, Benton Iowa then in 1900 JAMES and BELLE are boarders in Fairview, Jones, Iowa. They are ages 45(James) and 46(Belle) I can not find them after that. I was hoping someone could give suggestions. I found on Ancestry a JAMES MALLORY died in 1904, but I'm not sure if this is him. The Ancestry reads: James Mallory Death Dte: 28 Oct 1909 Page #: 70 Relative: 78 Level Info: Grave Records of Allamakee, Johnson, Howard and Lucas Counties, Adair, Gothrie, Madison, Marion Johnson County, Iowa Any help would be great. I would like to know if this is him and if not is he still in Iowa after 1900. I have lost him at this point. Thank you,
