    Maloy family came in the 1820s

    Ancestors of the local Maloy family were residing in Covington County by 1 850 when the federal census was taken. Daniel Maloy, born in 1786 in Nor th Carolina, emigrated to Santa Rosa County Florida fairly early. Ther e, in Escambia County, he married Nancy White, and the couple began the ir family. Their first six children were born in Florida before they mov ed to Covington County during the late 1820s.

    In 1854, he purchased 40 acres of land in the Oak Grove community betwe en Burnout and Brantley. During the next year, he acquired 81 acres in t he Union community. His son, Angus, bought 200 acres in the same area in 1 855. At some point, Daniel was awarded a Spanish Land Grant for 640 acres.

    When Daniel arrived, he and his wife, Nancy White, had 10 children. They w ere Sarah, b. 1816 in Fla., d. 1855, m. James Smith; Angus (or Anguish) B ., b. 1818, d. 1900, m. (1) Serena Mahala Turman (2) Elizabeth Johnson ( 3) Martha Hawthorne; John M., b. ca 1820, d. 1902, m. (1) Elizabeth Mari ah Sasser (2) Mary Anne ?; William, b. 1822, d. 1863, m. Sarah Lawson; Cel ia, b. 1824, d. 1865, m. Isaac Davis; Charles, b. 1825, d. 1903, m. Sar ah Lollis; Evander A., b. 1832, d. 1875, m. ? Singleton; Nancy, b. 183 5, d. 1904, m. Green Underwood; Martha, b. 1838, d. 1904, m. Henry Davi s; and Emily, b. 1842, d. 1880, single.

    During 1960, Daniel died and is buried in an unmarked grave. His widow, Na ncy, is listed in the same year as owner of three slaves. She died 12 yea rs later in Covington County.

    Angus was the oldest son and lived near his father. During the War Betwe en the States, he served as a private in Co. I, 4th. Regt. Ala.
    (Senior) Reserves. He was listed as being 45 years of age with the followi ng characteristics: blue eyes, light hair, fair complexion, and
    standing four feet and 10 inches in height.

    Angus was married to three different wives, but the only known children
    are by the first two. He and his first wife, Serena had three children:
    James Jefferson, b. 1842, d. 1858; William M., b. 1844, d. 1866; and
    Edwin Jackson, b. 1846, m. Fannie Linday.

    Angus and his second wife, Elizabeth, daughter of Hyrum and Sarah (Cosey)
    Johnson, reared the following children: Arra Ann Bashaby, b. 1849, d.
    1907, m. James Wesley Richards; Charles Allison, b. 1851, d. 1864; Sarah
    Elizabeth, b. 1853, d. 1893, m. Jasper Turner; Malza Serena, b. 1854, d.
    1925, m. William Morgan; and Marion Daniel, b. 1857, d. 1925, m. Ada Lee

    Family anecdotes reveal that after Angus had lost his second wife, he was
    faced with enlisting in the Confederate Service and having young children
    in his care. He settled this by marrying Martha Hawthorne who promised to
    care for his children during his absence. Descendants have been told that
    upon his return after the war, Angus found his children in good health,
    and the house was in very neat order. He and Martha remained married for
    the balance of his life. (Someone in the family has a photograph taken in
    the late 1800s of Martha with her oldest stepdaughter, Arra Ann (Maloy)
    Richards, and family.)

    The next son, John M. Maloy, had the following children by his first
    wife, Elizabeth Sasser: Stephen D., b. 1843; William B., b. 1845, d.
    1864, single; Andrew m., b. 1847, d. 1912, m. Nicie Hendricks (or
    Herricks); Matilda Ann Frances, b. 1849, d. 1915, m. William Monroe
    Reeves; Charles Irvin, b. 1850, d. 1924, m. Annie Butler (2) Nancy
    Kilcrease Butler, widow of his first wife’s brother, Coleman Butler;
    Vincent LaFayette, b. 1854, m. Americus Stromen; Hardy Thomas, b. 1856,
    d. 1930, m. (1) Mary Ann Bridges (2) Jessie Lee Mills; John G., b. 1858,
    d. ca 1928, m. Amanda Josephine Cottle; and Taylor Harrison, b. 1861, d.
    1884, m. Mary Nichols.

    The fourth son, Charles Irvin, became a Primitive Baptist minister. His
    first wife, Annie, is buried in the historic Veasey Cemetery beside her
    mother, Elizabeth (Wages) Butler.

    John G. was married second to Mary Anne Boland. By her, he had eight
    additional children. Between 1860 and 1872, John homesteaded 80 acres and
    40 acres, but these were both canceled.

    His son, John G., and wife, Amanda, reared the following children: Eula,
    b. 1884, m. Henry M. Jacobs; Roba, b. 1886, m. James A. Guinn; Samuel O.,
    b. 1889, d. 1958; Katie Bell, b. 1892, m. Frank A. Mills; Willie B., b.
    1894, m. Hugh Sweet; Jonnie B., b. 1897, m. Emmett Foreman; and Joe G.,
    b. 1899.

    Another son of Daniel, Charles, served in the state militia as well as
    the Confederate Army. He became a 2nd Lt. in Beat #3 Co., 60th. Regt.
    (Cov. Co.), 8th. Brigade, 11th. Div., Ala. Militia, 1848-1863. He later
    served as a private in Confederate Co. F, 33rd. Ala. Inf. Regt.

    Charles and his wife, Sarah Williams, were enumerated in the 1860 census
    as having three children: Amanda E. (4), Celia Ann (3), and Duncan (1).

    Still, another son, Evander A., was residing in the home of John B. Dixon
    when the 1860 federal census was taken. He was an 18-years-old farm
    laborer for Dixon in the Dixie community. By 1867, he was listed as a
    registered voter.

    During these early days of Covington County, there was a settler named
    Nathan Maloy whose relationship to the above lines has not been
    identified. It would seem that he might have been a nephew of Daniel or a
    younger cousin.

    Nathan was quite active in public affairs during the first years of the
    new town of Andalusia. In 1843, he was Constable for Beat Four. In 1848
    and 1851, he served as Justice of the Peace for Beat Four. During the
    W.B.T.S., he served in the same company with Charles Maloy — Co. F, 33rd.
    Ala. Inf. Regt. which was formed in 1862.

    Nathan is listed in the 1850 and 1860 censuses of Covington County. In
    1860, he (36) and wife, Martha (28), are shown with the following
    children: Tempy (11), Andrew J. (8), Martha A. (6), Hiram M. (4), and
    Susan B. (1). Nathan died in 1910 and his wife, Martha Henley, in 1808.
    They are both are buried at the Enon Baptist Church Cemetery.

    Most of the above descendants lived near the Oak Grove community in the
    northeast corner of Covington County. When Crenshaw County was formed in
    1866, much of their land was included in it. A number of the families
    moved to Florida, Louisiana, and Texas. One set became Mormans and moved
    to Arizona. However, there are many descendants currently residing in
    Covington and surrounding counties.

    A well-remembered business, located on Andalusia Court Square, was the
    Maloy-Beck Hardware Store. Samuel O. Maloy was co-owner and his son, Jim
    Maloy, was an employee. Jim died in the past few years after moving from
    Andalusia to Auburn.

    Baker, Fla., and an area genealogist, Scott Smith, of Enterprise. Anyone
