Kristy: I had no trouble finding John & Nora in 1900.
John died before 1910, but Nora & the 2 kids are still in Broome, NY.
John's Parents appear to be Patrick Malarkey (Ire 1838), and died > 1870 and May or Mary (unk) Malarkey(NY 1839), with siblings of Margaret(NY 1859-60), and Patrick (NY 1864).
In 1860 - Pat & May living in Spartansburg, Spartansburg County, South Carolina, w/Daughter Margaret (NY 1)
In 1870 - May/Mary (Wd)living in Broome County, NY, w/ 3 children: Margaret 10, Patrick 6, & John 4. (All born in NY - as least that's what is posted)
In 1880 - I could not locate any of the Family ! ? ! ?
I have copies of these two Census records, if you want them ! But you would have to send me your Email address so I can attach them to an Email.
I am very confident, that this is the correct Family.....John might have been born in Spartansburg, as well as Patrick......But at least you have a location, to continue your investigation.
