Thanks for the posts and suggestions.
Be assured that my interest is almost entirely genealogical.
I'm not a genealogist, but have been researching the Mallory Surname for over 40 years.
My query here is simply an effort to supplement
the Wikipedia Mallory pages, The Mallory Surname DNA Study and companion Rootsweb World Connect database.
I'd like to know more about how the Creek came to be called Mallory.
