MALONE--I would like very much to hear from Malone descendants in the White County area as it would help me sort them into family groups.
Some of my great-grandfather William Logan Malone's children were Laura, born about 1850, married Hiram "Tobe" Harrison; Newton Jasper, born 1852, married Mary Alice Nation; Mary Jane, born 1859, married James Skibinski; Helen, born 1861, married Wright Adams; Sarah M., born about 1867, married George R. Prince (moved to California); Hattie M. "Dorcas," aborn about 1870, married John Pyle; James M., born 1876, married Lettie Darnell; Cloyd C., born 1883, married Maggie Rockett; Susie, born about 1884, married Dave Cares; and Florence Belle, born about 1885, married Felix Tucker. James, Cloyd, Susie and Florence Belle all lived in White County, and some of their descendants are still in the area.

We hope White County students (fourth through twelfth graders) are hard at work on their essays on "My Favorite Ancestor." This is a contest being sponsored by the Genealogy Library. Word went out to the schools a few weeks ago, plus details have been in the newspapers. After winners have been declared, we expect to publish some of the winning essays.

. We have received word of an honor which has been bestowed on former White County resident Mary Smith Fay. When the American Society of Genealogists met in Salt Lake City, Utah, in October, Fay was named a Fellow of that by-invitation-only, exclusive organization. The ASC is an honorary society limited in membership to 50 living members, chosen from genealogists throughout the world! A news release reporting this stated, "Mary has been a Certified Genealogist since 1974.... In addition to her books and articles in scholarly and historical journals, Mary is probably best known for her forensic work on the landmark Howard Hughes heirship ease. Earlier this year, she was named by the Honorable Bob Lanier, Mayor of Houston, Texas, to the Board of the Houston Public Library...." I can only say, "What took the ASG so long?" Mary Smith Fay is most deserving of these honors.

Ye Olde Genealogie Shoppe is sponsoring a genealogy seminar in Indianapolis on Saturday, Nov. 22, 1997. There is a $30 registration fee. They have a reputation of putting on wonderful workshops. If interested, drop into the Genealogy Library for a brochure.

We continue to be comfortably busy with letters and visitors to our Genealogy Library. We're open from 11 to 5 on Wednesdays. Come join us.
