Maloy family came in the 1820s
Ancestors of the local Maloy family were residing in Covington County by 1 850 when the federal census was taken. Daniel Maloy, born in 1786 in Nor th Carolina, emigrated to Santa Rosa County Florida fairly early. Ther e, in Escambia County, he married Nancy White, and the couple began the ir family. Their first six children were born in Florida before they mov ed to Covington County during the late 1820s.
In 1854, he purchased 40 acres of land in the Oak Grove community betwe en Burnout and Brantley. During the next year, he acquired 81 acres in t he Union community. His son, Angus, bought 200 acres in the same area in 1 855. At some point, Daniel was awarded a Spanish Land Grant for 640 acres.
When Daniel arrived, he and his wife, Nancy White, had 10 children. They w ere Sarah, b. 1816 in Fla., d. 1855, m. James Smith; Angus (or Anguish) B ., b. 1818, d. 1900, m. (1) Serena Mahala Turman (2) Elizabeth Johnson ( 3) Martha Hawthorne; John M., b. ca 1820, d. 1902, m. (1) Elizabeth Mari ah Sasser (2) Mary Anne ?; William, b. 1822, d. 1863, m. Sarah Lawson; Cel ia, b. 1824, d. 1865, m. Isaac Davis; Charles, b. 1825, d. 1903, m. Sar ah Lollis; Evander A., b. 1832, d. 1875, m. ? Singleton; Nancy, b. 183 5, d. 1904, m. Green Underwood; Martha, b. 1838, d. 1904, m. Henry Davi s; and Emily, b. 1842, d. 1880, single.
During 1960, Daniel died and is buried in an unmarked grave. His widow, Na ncy, is listed in the same year as owner of three slaves. She died 12 yea rs later in Covington County.
Angus was the oldest son and lived near his father. During the War Betwe en the States, he served as a private in Co. I, 4th. Regt. Ala.
(Senior) Reserves. He was listed as being 45 years of age with the followi ng characteristics: blue eyes, light hair, fair complexion, and
standing four feet and 10 inches in height.
Angus was married to three different wives, but the only known children
are by the first two. He and his first wife, Serena had three children:
James Jefferson, b. 1842, d. 1858; William M., b. 1844, d. 1866; and
Edwin Jackson, b. 1846, m. Fannie Linday.
Angus and his second wife, Elizabeth, daughter of Hyrum and Sarah (Cosey)
Johnson, reared the following children: Arra Ann Bashaby, b. 1849, d.
1907, m. James Wesley Richards; Charles Allison, b. 1851, d. 1864; Sarah
Elizabeth, b. 1853, d. 1893, m. Jasper Turner; Malza Serena, b. 1854, d.
1925, m. William Morgan; and Marion Daniel, b. 1857, d. 1925, m. Ada Lee
Family anecdotes reveal that after Angus had lost his second wife, he was
faced with enlisting in the Confederate Service and having young children
in his care. He settled this by marrying Martha Hawthorne who promised to
care for his children during his absence. Descendants have been told that
upon his return after the war, Angus found his children in good health,
and the house was in very neat order. He and Martha remained married for
the balance of his life. (Someone in the family has a photograph taken in
the late 1800s of Martha with her oldest stepdaughter, Arra Ann (Maloy)
Richards, and family.)
The next son, John M. Maloy, had the following children by his first
wife, Elizabeth Sasser: Stephen D., b. 1843; William B., b. 1845, d.
1864, single; Andrew m., b. 1847, d. 1912, m. Nicie Hendricks (or
Herricks); Matilda Ann Frances, b. 1849, d. 1915, m. William Monroe
Reeves; Charles Irvin, b. 1850, d. 1924, m. Annie Butler (2) Nancy
Kilcrease Butler, widow of his first wife’s brother, Coleman Butler;
Vincent LaFayette, b. 1854, m. Americus Stromen; Hardy Thomas, b. 1856,
d. 1930, m. (1) Mary Ann Bridges (2) Jessie Lee Mills; John G., b. 1858,
d. ca 1928, m. Amanda Josephine Cottle; and Taylor Harrison, b. 1861, d.
1884, m. Mary Nichols.
The fourth son, Charles Irvin, became a Primitive Baptist minister. His
first wife, Annie, is buried in the historic Veasey Cemetery beside her
mother, Elizabeth (Wages) Butler.
John G. was married second to Mary Anne Boland. By her, he had eight
additional children. Between 1860 and 1872, John homesteaded 80 acres and
40 acres, but these were both canceled.
His son, John G., and wife, Amanda, reared the following children: Eula,
b. 1884, m. Henry M. Jacobs; Roba, b. 1886, m. James A. Guinn; Samuel O.,
b. 1889, d. 1958; Katie Bell, b. 1892, m. Frank A. Mills; Willie B., b.
1894, m. Hugh Sweet; Jonnie B., b. 1897, m. Emmett Foreman; and Joe G.,
Another son of Daniel, Charles, served in the state militia as well as
the Confederate Army. He became a 2nd Lt. in Beat #3 Co., 60th. Regt.
(Cov. Co.), 8th. Brigade, 11th. Div., Ala. Militia, 1848-1863. He later
served as a private in Confederate Co. F, 33rd. Ala. Inf. Regt.
Charles and his wife, Sarah Williams, were enumerated in the 1860 census
as having three children: Amanda E. (4), Celia Ann (3), and Duncan (1).
Still, another son, Evander A., was residing in the home of John B. Dixon
when the 1860 federal census was taken. He was an 18-years-old farm
laborer for Dixon in the Dixie community. By 1867, he was listed as a
During these early days of Covington County, there was a settler named
Nathan Maloy whose relationship to the above lines has not been
identified. It would seem that he might have been a nephew of Daniel or a
Nathan was quite active in public affairs during the first years of the
new town of Andalusia. In 1843, he was Constable for Beat Four. In 1848
and 1851, he served as Justice of the Peace for Beat Four. During the
W.B.T.S., he served in the same company with Charles Maloy — Co. F, 33rd.
Ala. Inf. Regt. which was formed in 1862.
Nathan is listed in the 1850 and 1860 censuses of Covington County. In
1860, he (36) and wife, Martha (28), are shown with the following
children: Tempy (11), Andrew J. (8), Martha A. (6), Hiram M. (4), and
Susan B. (1). Nathan died in 1910 and his wife, Martha Henley, in 1808.
They are both are buried at the Enon Baptist Church Cemetery.
Most of the above descendants lived near the Oak Grove community in the
northeast corner of Covington County. When Crenshaw County was formed in
1866, much of their land was included in it. A number of the families
moved to Florida, Louisiana, and Texas. One set became Mormans and moved
to Arizona. However, there are many descendants currently residing in
Covington and surrounding counties.
A well-remembered business, located on Andalusia Court Square, was the
Maloy-Beck Hardware Store. Samuel O. Maloy was co-owner and his son, Jim
Maloy, was an employee. Jim died in the past few years after moving from
Andalusia to Auburn.
