Surnames: Malloy Molloy Eikhof
In October 1916, my grandmother, Mary Ann Malloy, emigrated to New York with her sister, Sarah Malloy, aboard the Philadelphia. According to the ship's manifest they were met at Ellis Island by their brother, Charles Malloy . They were from Silverwood and Lurgan, County Armagh.

Charles Malloy came to New York a few years earlier and started a window cleaning business in New York City. He later married a woman name Margaret. (I've discovered that Charles and Margaret lived in Flushing, Queens...Jackson Heights, New York and passed in 1975 an 1974 respectively). There was another brother, Henry Malloy, and he too...came to New York before the sisters. I know of one brother who stayed in Ireland and his name was Thomas Malloy. I've been told he was in the Military.

I am looking for Malloy/Molloy family members. My father's mom, Mary Ann Malloy, died when he was two or three. His father remarried and as a result....my dad lost touch with his Malloy/Molloy family.

My dad, R.Thomas Eikhof...(named for his Uncle Thomas Malloy who lived in Ireland), turned 85 this week, and has always wondered about his Irish Family and Heritage. Years ago we began searching records in hopes of at least finding the cemetery in which his mom is buried. We end up with nothing. It has been very disappointing.

I know there are Malloys out there.....perhaps, in the Queens New York area as well as County Armagh and would love it if afer all these years my dad had the opportunity to meet his long lost family.

I have read your letter and think that I might be able to fill in some gaps. I believe that Mary Malloy who you have mentioned is quite possibly my great aunt?!
My grandmother was Agnes Malloy and she lived in Lurgan, County Armagh. She had a sister called Mary that I know about, Agnes moved to Glasgow around 1916 (or at least thats when she was married) but i dont know what happened to Mary?! Thats about all i know im not sure if your Mary had any other siblings and if there is any connection between the two but please e-mail back if you think we might be getting anywhere!

Hello...Her name is Mary Ann or Marianne...I do know she had a brother by name of Charles and sister, Sarah as demosntrated by the documents obtained from this site as well as Ellis Island. I appreacite the fact that you took the time to write to me as I keep hitting dead ends and it has been a goal of mine to find my father's biological family. He is now 88 and it would be wonderful to find some cousins.....Charles, my grandmother and Sarah came to NY around 1916....there may be a Henry and I know that there was anohter brohter named Thomas who stayed in Ireland and served in the military. The two names I would like to find are Malloy and McKeown. I think McKeown was the name of my great-grandmother. Again, thanks for writing...hey.... who knows... we may be Malloy cousins via our Armagh connection...
