I'm trying to find George's parents.
I looked for parents of George W. Malone, born in Virginia in 1816, but did not find anything at . There may be a way to uncover his parents names there, but I have not found it. You might also try and/or others with the Malone surname at or
Try starting with Daniel Malone b.  1620 killucan, westmeath Ireland or Daniel Malone b. 1642/43  (father and son, says I  ;-)  ) then work down to George from there ... Dan 1642/43 had a George born 1670 or thereabouts, first born in the Americas... family names do tend to repeat.
It has been my understanding that you start with the generation that you know about and then work back to the next generation.

In spite of efforts to do that, I have not come up with anything yet.
and if that doesn't work, try the other direction!  That is sometimes the
best if the other way doesn't work.  I did that... started with me and got
to my Great Grandfather and was a bit stuck, so I started with the first
American Generation and actually was able to get it to a direct connection from there....  It at least gives you and idea of where to look for the proofs!

Howard Hill Malone (1927, my dad) Walter Hill Malone (1888) Tyree Reeves
Malone (1853) Robert Lewis Malone, John Malone (married to Gracie Eaves
daughter of Izza Malone and John Malone... John and Gracie were most likely
first cousins and they have lots of us related to them)  to Robert Malone
(the 1750 one born in VA) Robert Dennis Malone (1736) son of  Col. Robert Dennis
Malone, George Malone, Daniel Malone 1642/43, Daniel Malone 1620

That is from memory and could be off a bit, but by starting with Daniel I
was able to find the bridge from Tyree Reeves Malone all the way to Daniel.

so starting at the one you know is best, but if you are stuck, try going
the other direction and see if it helps! It at least gives you more information and a better idea of where to look for proofs.  Remember that first names are often skip generation, so they would name the first born son after the father's father rather than after the father like we do.  Just gives us a nice hint to help, your George might have been the grandson of a George. (second born sons after the mother's father, if I remember correctly and daughters the same way, after the mother's mother, etc.)  So your George might be a grandson of the George who is the son of Daniel 1642/43 who came in in about 1655 from Ireland.  Just a thought... when you are stuck you can try other directions.
Mary, for some reason I hadn't seen your reply until today. I will look into your suggestions.

Thank you!
