My maternal Malones, Hollingers, de Juzan, Rochon, Russell, et al, were early Mobile, Alabama, families. My Thomas Malone, Sr., from Bute/Warren/Wake Cos., N.C. in 1802 was U.S. Land Office Agent, U.S. Magistrate, Clerk of Court, and Asst. U.S. Indian Agent, and Freemason, Ft. St. Stephens, Ala. I noted an earlier silversmith (John?) Sossaman there who lived in a tent and made silverware there. He seems to be kin to my paternal Cabarrus Co., N.C., Sossamans. My John Cyrus Miller, born 1811, Cabarrus, died 1893 Rowan Co., wed 1st Sophie Propst. His father was John "Henry" Miller who wed second, the widow Mrs. Emilia "Milly" Fisher Sossaman, the daughter of Capt. Frederick Fisher and first wife Rosana. Since Sossaman the silversmith from Cabarrus was an early settler above Mobile, possibly a Propst was also? At Magnolia Cemetery, Mobile, the adjoining old grave to my 1815 Col. Gilbert Christian Russell, Sr., 3rd U.S. Infantry, is a Sossaman, but in a separate family lot.
