In Reply to: Margaret Maloon, Shelby Co., IL, 1900 census by Linne Gravestock of 36

Margaret A. Maloon's maiden name was "Moxley". She can be found after her marriage to John M. Maloon (1825-1899) in the censuses 1870 - IL/Shelby/Shelbyville, p292, "Malone"; 1880 - IL/Shelby/Windsor, ED203, p341A, ""Molone"; the 1900 you have cited; and again in 1900 - IN/Vigo/Harrison, ED100, p2B, "Meloon". John M. Maloon served in the Union Army in the Civil War and his service records spelled his name "Maloon" which is how I picked him up. Margaret Moxley was apparently born in MO in March 1839 but I have been unable to find her in either the 1850 or 1860 census. She was originally married to a William Brown who moved to Shelbyville and died in 1867. John M. Maloon's first wife died in 1868 and after several months, he married Margaret (Moxley) Brown before dying in 1899. She filed for a soldier's pension and there are at least three affidavits in his pension file which conclusively outline her marital history as having been married to William Brown until 1867, then to John Maloon from 1868 until 1899. She had at least two sons with Maloon, Henry E. Maloon (1870 - 1918) and George Maloon (1876-1939). George is believed to be the father of Otis (1895 - ?). Margaret died in Shelbyville 27 December 1903.
