It took me quite a while to piece together where the Malloy's fit in with my Maxwell/Duffy cousins.  I finally figured it out on Ancestry.com.  Ellen Duffy was their mother and she must have died rather young.  I find her son's living with their grandparents out at the Duffy Ranch in Napa circa 1910.  Ancestry.com populates the family tree incorrectly off the U.S. Census mixing and matching the grandchildren with one of their uncles.  It took me a while to figure that mistake out.  Once I fixed it, I had to figure out who the Malloy's mother was.  It was Ellen Duffy.

I find myself in a bit of quandary when it comes to the Duffy's.  I have limited information about the actual members of the family tree.  The line on Ancestry.com looks very incomplete.  I know that there are still Malloy's living in Napa.  I've been hoping to bump into a Duffy or Malloy researcher on Ancestry.com.  They did research their tree.  At least one descendant visited with my grandfather years ago about the family connection.  He gave my grandfather Duffy/Maxwell information.  I think my mom went to high school with a Malloy, too!

So where do I go from here on the Maxwell/Duffy line?  I have information but am not sure about the family line.  I also have some very strong evidence that the Duffy's connect to Newport, New York and the Irish Settlement.  I also think that some Duffy's moved to Montello, WI and married into the McLaughlin line that went there too. 

Will a Duffy or Malloy researcher please stand up?  I hope to find one someday.  I do know that there is a Duffy descendant still probably living at the Duffy property in Napa.  Maybe I should quit being so shy and write them a letter.  There is definitely more information to discover here.

To be continued................
