Captain John Mallory and his progeny with notes by Mallory Smith:

[Mallory, Caleb R., Hamilton, U.C. 1828. Present residence unknown. (Fifty Years of Cazenovia Seminary) Caleb lived in Hamilton Twp, Northumberland Co., Ontario, Canada.   For photo of Caleb Mallory and his children, contact below.]

[Capt John Mallory came with his seven sons and several daughters to Nelson, Madison County, NY. Caleb was one of his sons. It is uncertain exactly which Caleb attended the seminary....John, Jr. had a son Caleb, too. The seven sons: Simmons, Thomas, Caleb, Reuben, John Jr., Elijah, and Noble. Noble died young and Capt John had an eighth son and also named him Noble. It's possible Noble was father of Solomon as they both purchased land in Wisconsin.]
One of Capt Mallory's daughter married Ira Alvord..... Caleb had a son, Ira Alvord Mallory died young.
 (7) Ira Alvord Mallery 5 pm Friday 8 Oct 1819 Cobourg, Northumberland, Ontario d Sep 27 1837 (the Thursday morning before this date) “He was seated on a loaded waggon, driving homeward. In descending a step hill near his father’s house he endeavored to curb the horses, and unfortunately missed his foothold in the attempt. The horses, finding themselves at once free from the restraint of the rein, started at a rapid rate down the hill, and the deceased slipped, or was jerked, from his seat over the front of the waggon, and, the wheels instantly passed over his body. Some persons, passing at the time, immediately conveyed the poor young man home. He lingered about two hours and a half after the accident, retaining his consciousness and the power of speech until the last. The deceased was a fine young man and in the 18th year of his age.”  Coburg Globe

 OBIT: Death of an Old Pioneer of St. Clair Co
On Tuesday March 14th, 1893, at his residence in Kimball Twp, Caleb Mallory, aged 74.Caleb J Mallory was born in Dryden Twp, Jefferson Co., in the State of New York in 29 Aug 1819 and was the second in a family of seven children. His father John Mallory moved near Coburg in Canada when he was 12 years old. In 1843 he was married to Cynthia Blakley and in 1851 he moved to Michigan, arriving in St Clair with only fifty cents in his pocket. He immediately went to work in the lumber woods and about the first jobbing he did was building a wooden track railroad for one Fletch in the township of Kimball. He had fair success in the lumbering business, at one time owning as much as 1000 acres of land in Kimball. He also built a steam sawmill on his farm in 1869.Although a professor of religion he belonged to no particular denomination believing the bible to be all the creed necessary. A wife and seven children survive him, four girls and three boys, all of whom are married.  The eldest DW Mallory living in Kansas; Sarah A. now Mrs WJ Terney of Roscommon, Michigan; Warren B. of Thornton Michigan; Louisa C., Mrs JD Palmer of Detroit; George E. of Smith’s Creek, Michigan; Nancy A. now Mrs Richard Hubble of Smith’s Creek, Michigan, and Clara A now Mrs MO McFarland of Lennon, Michigan.  Caleb’s brother was Benjamin Richardson Mallory.  They were sons of John and Sarah Richardson Mallory.

        -Notes from Methodist papers (Ontario)

“The rise and fall of the Patrons of Industry in Ontario, and for that matter in Quebec and Manitoba, was meteoric. Founded in 1889 at Sarnia, the Patrons of Industry almost completely replaced the more staid and conservative Patrons of Husbandry, or Grange. Like the Grange, the Patrons originated in the United States but - again following the Grange - quickly asserted their independence.

C.A. Mallory, the grand master of the Patrons, described his movement's platform with engaging naivëté in 1893. "Ours is a platform of the people," he declared. "Party platform is the expressed desire of the wearied toilers anxiously 1onging for freedom from the thralldom of monopoly and praying for the country's good."(10)

After the Patrons elected seventeen members to the Ontario legislature in 1894, Grand President Mallory declared that "the members of the labour organizations in the towns and cities did us good service in the provincial campaign and, by that course, have proven their willingness to cooperate with us for the relief of the masses. When such organizations exist in any part of the constituencies. I would advise that they be invited to participate by sending delegates to our conventions."(13) Or as the editor of the Sun put it a few months later, "the tillers and the toilers are in perfect harmony. Let them march to the front together."(14)

                Caleb Mallory, the Patrons' leader, reportedly told a meeting in Picton in 1893 that "the legalized tariff of the doctors and the lawyers prevented them from coming into competition with one another. He referred to the coffin combination and declared that from the hour of his birth until the day he was laid in the grave the farmer was confronted by combinations."(28) The following year he told the annual convention that "Capital has always claimed the right to combine. Manufacturers meet and determine prices in spite of the laws of supply and demand. Capitalists, by united effort, strive to control the legislature, the judiciary, and the executive. . . . Why should the monopolist and the combinester assume to control the destinies of the land?"(29)

Marion (Rhodes) Beaumont Lawson)
I remember my Great Aunt Dora fondly. She lived in Jamestown, NY, most of
her adult life, and I lived in Richmond, VA and only saw her every few
years. She was known, at least on my part, for her impeccable manners, and every time my family visited she would take us out to some wonderful restaurant for dinner. Our family didn't eat out at restaurants much as I was growing up, so my sister, brother and myself would be quizzed on our etiquette before we visited with Aunt Dora. Not that we were bad mannered, I don't think we were, but at home we only used the basic silverware - no extra forks or knives. I was scared to death that I would do something wrong. I remember a very special luncheon. Aunt Dora and my Grandmother, Marion Beaumont Lawson decided to take me out to lunch without the rest of the family. I believe there was another lady along, but I do not remember who she was. I don't have any idea how old I was, but I felt like such a lady. What a wonderful meal! When the
bread was put on the table it smelled heavenly. After taking a dinner
roll from the basket, I raised it to my nose and took a deep breath - "Ah! This smells so good," I proclaimed. I can't recall if they said anything to me at the restaurant, I don't think they did, but later that
evening my mother told me that Aunt Dora and Grandma had been embarrassed
by this uncouth behavior.
Aunt Dora never married. My mother said she thought Dora once had a beau
who was a soldier and was killed. The truth of this I do not know. I have a stamp collection that my Great Aunt Dora gave to me as a teenager. She was the consummate teacher, wanting to pass on the love of
learning or encourage others in some new activity. All I had to do is mention that I had begun to collect stamps and she gave me her collection of many, many years. This is not a valuable collection - because the
stamps are cancelled and affixed to envelopes, but it is precious to me
and goes back to the early 1900's.
Dora was a fine Christian woman and attended the Methodist Church. She
loved supporting mission work and corresponded regularly with her cousin
Robert A. Blasdell, who was a missionary to Malaya and her cousin Jenny
A. Blasdell, who was a missionary in India.
Aunt Dora loved to travel! Being a

PS: There was an Ephraim Mallory who lived in Nelson in 1806.....    I believe I know which to the two Ephraim's that lived in the area he was, but not with absolute certainty.  One would have been from the Public Universal Friends Settlement...a son of Meridah Mallory who died in 1788 (during that first harsh winter).   Meridah had three sons, John, Meredith, and Ephraim.  However, Zaccheus Mallory who lived in Wells Rutland Vt also had a son Ephraim and his son Ephraim eventually moved to Sandy Creek and had 13 children.  Vt congressman Richard Walker Mallary is a descendant of that Ephraim.
