Back to Charles Malcom

































Descendants of Samuel Malcom and Juditha Kinney


Generation No. 1

The information on this page was researched by Donna Meszaros who received much of her information from Nila (Hardin) Malcom, the wife of Lewis Malcom's great-grandson, Raymond Boyd Malcom.   All the photos of the Malcoms in Oregon and Washington were sent to me by Robin Malcom Owen who is the great-great granddaughter of Lewis Asa Malcom, the main focus of this web page.  


1.  SAMUEL MALCOM (4) (CHARLES3, MICHAEL2, WILLIAM1) was born 19 May 1815 in Wendell, Massachusetts, and died 06 Nov 1900 in Buried at Maple Grove Cemetery, Concord, MI.  He married (1) JUDITHA KINNEY 14 Jul 1834 in Pike, New York. 

Notes for SAMUEL MALCOM: Samuel was a cooper by trade but also farmed. He also dabbled in land speculation at times.



              i.   LEWIS ASA5 MALCOM, b. 05 Aug 1835 Pike, Allegany County, New York; d. 24 Nov 1918, Clatskanie, Columbia Co, Oregon.  He is buried at Maplewood Cemetery.  Click here to read a compilation of facts telling the story of Lewis Malcom after he leaves his home in Michigan before 1860 and goes to California. He is 26 years old in 1860.

             ii.   LUCY MALCOM, b. 1840, Jackson County, Michigan; d. 14 Feb 1874, Cedar Springs, Michigan; m. RICHMOND BLACKMER, 12 Jan 1862, Mosherville, Michigan; b. 1837, Hillsdale County, Michigan.


            Generation No. 2

2.  LEWIS ASA5 MALCOM (SAMUEL4, CHARLES3, MICHAEL2, WILLIAM1) was born 05 Aug 1835 in Allegany County, New York, and died 24 Nov 1918 in Clatskanie, Columbia Co, Oregon buried at Maplewood Cemetery.  He married OLIVE JANE STRONG PARCHER on 13 Mar 1866 in Tama, Iowa, daughter of SAMPSON STRONG and FRANCES KELLER.  She was born 15 Mar 1840 in West Mansfield, Logan Co., Ohio, and died 03 Apr 1931 in Carlton, Oregon and is also buried Maplewood Cemetery in Clatskanie, Oregon.   Here at this internet site is a story about the pioneer life of Olive Jane Parcher Malcom.  It is quite a tale and shows the remarkable strength and fortitude it took be a pioneer woman in the United States in the 1800s.  It will also fill in the details of this family (put flesh on their bones)" much better than a long list of names and dates only.  I was alerted to this story, thanks again, to Robin Malcom Owen.


    Olive had three sons by George Parcher.  The children were Rodney George, and Ira Sampson and Boyd, who were twins.  Ira and Boyd were born on June 25, 1863 but Boyd died the same day. Rodney lives until age 17 but then is killed by an accidental gunshot wound while hunting near home in 1879.
At the right is a photo of Olive, her son Fred S. Malcom and daughter, NIna F. Malcom.

    Her first husband George Parcher enlisted as a Private in the Union Army on March 31, 1864.  He was age 34.  He died of a cholera in Centralia, Illinois on Sept 29, 1864 while returning home from the Civil War on a furlough. It seems to me to be very odd for him to join the war effort when the war is almost over.  Perhaps the death of his twin son, Boyd, in 1863 had something to do with his decision.
What you see below is a wonderfully historic photo of the extended family of Lewis Asa Malcom, his oldest daughter and his sons by Olive Strong Parcher Malcom.  Lewis and his sons are in the front row and others surrounding him who are various relatives, grandchildren and perhaps employees of the Malcom Brothers shingle mill in Clatskanie, Oregon. This photo was taken in 1902 and was sent to me by Robin Owen Malcom who in turn received it from one of her cousins.    A key to the persons seen in the photo follows.

▼Here is the tombstone of Lewis and Olive Malcom, buried together at Maplewood Cemetery in Clatskanie, OR.  Their son Victor, who died the same year as Lewis, is buried beside them.  Victor dies in February ▼and Lewis dies in November.  It must have been a hard year for Olive.                         These two photos are from Donna Meszaros. Thanks Donna.
