◄ At the right is George and
Minerva's son, John Jasper Malcom. (1856-1907)He is killed at
age 51 when a steam powered threshing machine he was riding on crashes
through a bridge. He and his wife Emma Bell Lucas, have one son
Bernard Bertran Malcom and apparently live near Anthon, Iowa
as he is buried there. She marries for a second time in 1912 to Charles
Groom but divorces him in 1919. ▼ Below on the right is a photo that was identified in writing as "Emana" Belle Lucas and John J. Malcom. The handwriting looks very like my
Grandmother Minnie's script. These two men could be the same man only the
one below was taken at an earlier age. Something about the nose and mouth look
the same to me. I received a very poor photo copy of this picture with a
note written on the side. The note said, "Can you identify these
people?" and signed
"Lee" is Laura Lee
Malcom Beyer. It may have been sent to my Uncle Vincent who corresponded
with Laura Lee before he died. Her signature is the same on those sent to
Vincent that were
given to me and signed by her.
A 1930 census finds
Emma living in Sioux City, IA. as boarders in a private residence. She is listed as a "servant",
age 67 and he is listed as a "janitor", age 31.
Below on the left is the obituary for Emma
Belle Lucas Malcom. She died in 1935 of influenza in Sioux City, Iowa where she
lived with her son, Bernard. He was only 8 years old when his father dies
in the accident on the bridge. After his mother's death,
Bernard's whereabouts are unknown.
The last photo on this page pictures the grave stone for George, Minerva
and Charlie Malcom (their son). This stone is erected in the Maple Grove
Cemetery in Tama County, Iowa just southeast of Montour, Iowa. Sara had Minerva's remains moved from the Murty
pioneer cemetery gravesite (located near Garwin in Carlton Township, Iowa just
north of Indian Village Township) to join her father at Maple Grove
The photo on the left side of this page shows Sara with her
sister Ora Josephine (called Josie) and her half brother and sisters from her mother's second marriage to William Murty.
It appears that they remained close over the years. Sara is the middle
woman in the back row of this photo and looks to be about 50 or 60 years old.
Josie is on her right.
◄ To the right is
George and Minerva's daughter, Sara. (1835-1930). When young, she is a school
teacher. While visiting her Uncle Horatio and his family after they had
moved to Pottawattamie County, Iowa near Council Bluffs, she meets and marries a
man named Harry Green. He dies just a year and a half later.
She then marries William Sharp and when he dies in 1901 she marries her last
husband, James Lockwood.
Sara and James both die in Lodi, California in 1930.
