Our family has over 10,000 members, so no I am not in contact with this particular family line. However, you can contact the John More Assoc and ask if there is an email for one of the family members and have your email forwarded to one of them. You will need to include the number shown after the names, but we no longer use () or commas. Example: How Charlotte's number now reads: 7.13.11
Please note that Charlotte is a MORE, not a MOORE. That is one correction to be made.
As to what is in the Chronicles of the More Family, here is what is printed on the names you are asking about:
Charlotte Adelia More (7(13)1,1), the only child of John Grant More, was born in Walton, January 21, 1895. On July 3, 1920, she married Henry Michell Meloney, in Walton. While the Meloney family lived for several years in Douglaston, Long Island, yet the hometown - Walton -was alway close to their hearts. Cousin Charlotte Meloney is living in Walton and her two children were born there.
John Mitchell Meloney (7(13)1,11), was born January 14, 1923, in Walton and his boyhood was spent there. He enrolled in Cornell University as a freshman in 1941, but two years later saw him in Fort Sill, Oklahoma, and enlisted in the U. S. Field Artillery. His miiltary (note this is a misprint in the book, not my bad typing!!) service took him to various locations.
While stationed in England, the family with whom he was quartered wrote to his mother, in part, as follows: "If my sons have ever to leave home and country, I can but wish they will advertise both with such gentlemanliness and consideration as does Pfc. John Meloney."
In 1947, John Meloney had an opportunity to study in the University of Stockholm, Sweden, for five montsh, in a group of American students. He found it time well spent. During the Easter recess he went with some Swedish students on a ten-day skiing journey of about two hundred miles, mostly above timberline. The excursion included country dances in small farm houses in the evenings. He had a real taste of Swedish young folks' social life!
On May 28, 1949, John Meloney and Virginia Shannon Malany were married in Sidney, New York. The ceremony took place in St. Paul's Episcopal Church, with Rev. Rollin D. Malany, father of the bride, officiating.
The bride attended Antioch College, Yellow Springs, Ohio, and Wayne University, Detroit, Michigan. During the war she served as a member of the Women's Air Service Pilots, ferrying planes. After the war she was sent by the Red Cross to France and Germany as a Red Cross worker.
A few days after the wedding, this adventurous couple started on a long drive to Alaska, camping out at night. They bought a cottage in Fairbanks, to live in through the winter, and were back in the StateS in time to attend the 1950 Reunion of the JMA. They are now established in Manchester, New Hampshire, where Cousin John Meloney has an excellent position in the newspaper field. In the meaNtime, he has given generously of his time and ability in serving as an associate editor for the CHRONICLES OF THE MORE FAMILY.
Charlotte Marion Meloney (7(13)1,12) was born Ausut 12, 1925, in Walton, New York. She graduated from Stratford Hall, Danville, Virginia, and attended Syracuse University, and the Traphagen School of Fashion. Previous to her marriage she was employed in the Department of State in Washington D.C.
On April 30, 1949, in Zion Episcopal Church, Douglaston, Long Island, Charlotte Marion Meloney married Robert Lowe Hirshberg of Washington, D.C. The bride was given in marriage by her brother, John M. Meloney. The young couple have established their home in Bethesda, Maryland, and now have two children: Debora and Robin More Hirshberg. It seems certain that they will grow up in the traditions of the More clan!
