John L. Malcomb
Hi--In that 16 x 20 portrait of John L. you sent me, he seems somewhat younger than what he was in the family portrait. Any ideas on when that picture may have been taken? (1880's perhaps). If you have any other pictures of Howard Ford, your grandfather, or your father, that would be great! Just seeing the family resemblance through the generations would be so cool. When I look at John L., it is startling how much my grandfather looked like him! I wish I had more to offer from my end.

RE: Levin Malcomb
Wow--Mattie lived to be 101 years old. Gertrude and Robert Ford also enjoyed long lives. Interestingly, two of Howard Ford's kids (Gertrude and Robert Ford) married Forresters. Poor Dixie Howard... I wonder why he lived to only 27? I also noticed that it seems the Malcombs intertwined a lot with the Fowlkes over many generations. Ella Malcomb married a Fowlkes and my grandfather (Samuel Guy) married one (Ethel Fowlkes). Getting back to Mattie... Walter White, who married Mattie, his mother was named Latitia Fowlkes. Coincidence... probably not.

RE: Levin Malcomb
Hi--Wow, the final portrait you sent of John L. is an epic picture. I remember as a kid asking my grandfather about his dad (Samuel Guy) and all he used to tell me was that he "passed away many moons ago." Turns out my grandfather was about two years old when Samuel Guy died (1911), so he never really knew him. I have no idea what he died of, but take your pick back then. If you bump into any other pics, let me know. I'll do the same for you.

Mattie/Ella Connection
In regards to your other question regarding Mattie or Ella, I have no direct line to those ladies. By the way, interesting that John Levin Malcomb was living in the home of a Stribling (not Almeda) when he was sixteen. Could it be that, while there, he met Almeda, who was a relative of Uriah. I say relative instead of sister because Uriah is not listed as a child of Pleasant Stribling and Zerelda DeHoney like Almeda is. Also, would you say that the Malcomb family portrait was taken around 1890?

RE: Levin Malcomb
Hi--Yes, the spelling of Levin or Leven Malcomb seems to be used interchangeably when researching. I've also hit a brick wall with anything beyond him. Apparently John L. was the only child between him and Osbourne. I believe she remarried no long after. Anyway, here's my line:

Leven Malcomb
John Levin Malcomb
Samuel Guy (S.G.) Malcomb
Samuel Guy Malcomb Jr. (Although he never went by Jr.)
Susan Malcomb
Jason Jones (great, great, great grandson)

Would love for you to email me those pictures. That big portrait of John L. Malcomb must be grand! Can you imagine how many relatives from that clan we'll never know (that family portrait that included our great grandfathers looked to be seven kids total (between Almeda Stribling and John L.), right?

By the way, the name Stribling pops up a lot in my ancestry too. I'm curious to know more about that.

Levin Malcomb
Hi--I am Levin Malcomb's great, great grandson. Where did you find those pictures of his whole family? I wish those pictures were bigger so I could print out decent copies of them.

Mattie Gordon
Is your Weatherspoon the same person as 28250189 ?

I have transferred the memorials to you as you requested. The Striblings are my father's (and thus mine) ancestors.
