In 1910 Oklahoma City John J. Malone, 50 born in New York, has been married 28 years to Mary, 49, also New York - he's a plumber.  So this is not likely the same one.


There was a John L. Malone born in Missouri in 1868, married Lida Allen, and they had Elsie in 1892.  So this Malone is probably not related to the John Malone marrying Anna.

In 1900 Butler County, Nebraska John L Malone born Aug 1858 in Missouri, a dry goods merchant, and Lida Nov 1867 Indiana, have Elsie M. born July 1892 in Nebraska.

Florence is widowed in 1940 Twin Falls, still saying she was born in Michigan.

Florence Symon Snodgrass, born Oct 8, 1875, died in Twin Falls Dec 31, 1948 - so she's probably not the one in Phillips County.
