I'm researching this line, too. I have a bunch of printouts someone did on family tree maker years ago but I don't have any of the sources he used. My great-grandmother was a Malley, descended from Jean Mallet (John Malley) II. I don't suppose anyone has any insight on his marriages. From the information I have he and Louise had a child in 1832 then he married Elizabeth Tillman in 1833. What happened to Louise? I have a death date of 1891 for her. Unless that's just totally wrong. Also I'm not convince that arrival log is him. That shows a Jean Mallet who was 23 in 1820 but our Jean Mallet would have been 28 and I'm sure Jean Mallet was probably a reall common name (may still be). And everything I've seen and heard had him from Normandy, also. I'd love to chat with anyone about this.

There is an error on this page that should be corrected. Jean Mallet was not from Marseille in Provence (southern France), he was from Marseille-en-Beauvaisis in Picardie, near Normandy. My mother, Nina Mallette, is descended from this family, and it was commonly said in her family that Jean Mallet and the Mallets were from Normandy. They also said he was from Marseille, a small village in northern France, not the large port city in the south. I should mention that we are descended through Peter Vincent Mallette, Henri Mallette, and Orey Mallette. The latter are buried in Antioch Cemetery in Jackson County.

Thanks for your comment William. I believe Nap Cassibry also placed Jean in Normandy. His obituary stated Marseilles, but those details are sometimes confused in being passed down. I suppose there needs to be more research to determine this definitively. Cassibry's "The Ladner Odyssey" may cite some references if anyone has a copy handy.

Mallette-128 and Mallet-1 appear to represent the same person because: Same person

Malley-147 and Mallet-1 appear to represent the same person because: Same name, dates, spouse and locations. I believe LNAB should be Mallet (French spelling from France) with other spellings under 'other last names. Thanks.

This is the same as my ancestor who came from France, married Louise (Necaise) Fayard and started a family in the Kiln, Mississippi area.

Jean Mallet (1792-)

He later married Elizabeth Tillman and moved to the Lucedale area. It looks like your information is more complete than mine.

Can we merge these profiles?
