Mallalieu Family Genealogy Forum
My 2gr-grandmother was Mary MALLALIEU who was born in Chorley in either 1802 or 1806. She married Thomas RICHARDSON in Walton-le-Dale in 1824 and had eight children in Preston before emigrating to the U.S. with her husband and surviving children about 1843 as part of the Mormon Migration. Her ninth child, Thomas(2) from whom I am descended, was born in Iowa in 1844 and Mary died in Nauvoo, Illinois in October 1845.
Because she died so far from her home and family, and while her own children were so young, viturally no information has been passed down about her beyond her name. It does seem a good possibility that she is the daughter named Mary born 5Oct1806 in Chorley to Benjamin and Mary MALLALIEU.
Would appreciate any help you good people might give toward establishing the parentage and ancestory of my Mary MALLALIEU.
