expand/collapse Expand/collapse Collection Overview

Size About 200 items
Abstract The collection contains letters, 1843-1848 and 1882-1892, legal and financial materials, and miscellaneous items relating to the Malloy (sometimes Maloy) family of Lumber Bridge, Robeson County, N.C. The few letters from the 1840s are to Duncan Malloy from his brother, John Malloy, describing his life and surroundings in Telfair County, Ga. Most letters in the 1880s and 1890s are from family members in Robeson County to Duncan Malloy, probably a younger relative of the earlier Duncan, who moved to Georgia in 1891; they discuss family, farm, and other matters. Legal and financial papers are chiefly tax receipts and receipts for donations to Lumber Bridge Baptist Church in Robeson County. Also included are deeds, indentures, plats, and wills, 1790-1820, of Daniel and John Malloy, and a Maloy family tree prepared in 1983.
