Hi Anna,
Sorry, I don't have any history on our line except that both grandparents were born in Ireland and that they lived in Oakland, California. I am fairly certain that Malley was the original name. Sorry I can't be more help.

I'm a direct decendent of Jean (John) Mallet.
He was born in 1792 in Normandy France and died Nov. 20th 1885 in Lucedale, MS. He was married to Elizabeth Tillman Mallet. Marriage year: 1831 in MS. They had seven children. Their children carried the Mallette name. Do you have any info on his life in Normandy?
His brother is Marquis (Marcus) Mallet. There is also a third brother. I heard they came over on cattleboat to escape Napoleon.

Hi, cousin. I'm just typing the 2009 supplement to the family history of the George L. Mallettes in Fort Bayou, Mississippi. You and I have a common ancestor, Jean. But his wife Elizabeth is not the wife that my ancestors came from. He had a first wife, near Bay St.Louis, and the search for her identity continues. One genealogist has suggested Louise Necaise Fayard, a widow; the 1820 census might suggest this. She vanishes from census records in 1830. Jean soon married the daughter of a next-door neighbour, John Tillman Sr. and all of them move during the 1830s to the northern part of old Jackson County, now George County. The children by the first marriage, including my great-great grandfather Vincent, go with them. the youngest of those children was apparently named after the young Elizabeth Tillman, who was 16 in 1830. I live in England and am depending with all my energy on the generosity and kindness of genealogists on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi to dig a little deeper. I thank you for mentioning the cattle boat; I will include it in what I am typing today.

Please write back, Whippet12, and consider yourself invited to the family reunion at St. Martin Community Center in D'Iberville, north of Biloxi Bay, at 11:30 on Sunday July 12th 2009.

Hey, I show Jean (John) Mallette Born 1792 Normandy, France
Died November 20, 1885 in Lucedale, Mississippi.
His Wife Elizabeth was born 1814 in Georgia. They were married in 1831. They had 7 children. Both Jean and his wife were buried in the Mallette Cemetery, Lucedale, Mississippi.
I have an article January 25, 1973 George County times, Lucedale, MS Continual Cavalcade by Harvell Jackson. The brothers came over from France in 1810 on a cattleboat to "New France" on the Central Gulf Coast. "The Mallettes had to leave France to escape the guillotine. They were loyal subjects of the crown and Napolean Bonaparte did not like popular dissent. He just put a price on their heads and spread his dragnet."
We didn't know anything about his first wife. How many kids did they have? We will be out of town for a week. Can't make the family reunion, but have mentioned it to my mother. Do you have info on Jean's life in France? Thank you!!

Yes, I do have some information on Jean's early life--just by piecing together what turmoil was happening in France. the Revolution happened 3 years before his birth (his obituary says in Marseilles, on the opposite side of the country from Normandy)--our family said he and his kin were forced to take land in Alsace-Lorraine, in the east near the German border. The Napoleonic persecutions of royalists, as you have said, brought the immigration.

Children of Jean by his first wife are Jean Mallette II, Lucien, Vincent Peter (my ancestor), Anna, and Elizabeth. Children of Jean and Elizabeth are Celena, Clement, William, possibly Samuel, and James.

I would be glad to send you and your mother copies of "The Mallettes of Fort Bayou", 2008 big edition ($25) and 2009 Supplement, all new material ($10). Genealogists along the Coast, most generously Else Martin, have contribued a lot of records, and they are in the "Ancestors" sections of both books. This year, William Horne, a descendant of Clement (Clemmer), has an article on the Mallette Old Place near Lucedale, and a really nice sketch. His family had always said that Clement and Vincent were half-brothers, and they were delighted to learn last year how this was true. There must have been a very warm relationship between those children; Vincent named one of his sons William Clement, after his half-brothers.

Our ancestor Vincent is said to have been a native of Mobile. I am starting communications with the State of alabama and the Archdiocese of Mobile to see if I can substantiate this. Those records would have a certain name for his first wife, Louise Necaise or otherwise.
