Linda, I was going back over posts and saw only one followup. I have a Matilda D Malott, b ca 1869, Brown Co, OH, who married 20 Sep 1887, Butler Co, OH, Elias "Jack" Renner (1865 - 1955). If this is the correct Matilda, she is d/o Lorenzo Dow Malott (12 Apr 1839, Brown Co, OH - 8 May 1881), married 24 Aug 1861, Brown Co, OH, Margaret Ann Walls (19 Jun 1844, OH - 27 Dec 1927). Both buried Taylor's Chapel Cem, Brown Co, OH. Have more on the Malott line if needed.
