JAMES SAMUEL MALCOM

*****

Emma Long Malcom Zelgar

********

James Samuel Malcom was the next to the youngest of 11 children, born to James Earnest and Mary "Polly" Neel Malcom.

The exact time the family left Illinois is not known. But, we perhaps can speculate from the census.

The Malcom family was listed on the 1830, 1840, 1850 Census in Marion County Illinois. They were living by 23 June 1860, in Macoupin County Illinois per the U. S. Census.
By 6 July 1870 census, the Malcom family was living in Pettis County Missouri.
By 8 June 1880 James Samuel Malcom, along with his mother and brother Francis are living in Sniabar Twp., Lafayatte County Missouri, not far away from his sister Sary who had married George Kessler.

We know that Emma's parents and family moved from Grayson county Virginia to Belton, Cass Co Missouri in 1894.

Unable to locate a marriage record, the family said they married in 1895. James was 37 and Emma was 22 at this time.

Their first son, Ernest Chapman Malcom (my grandfather) was born 4 January 1899 in Kanses City MO. By 13 June 1900 Census, this family is now living in Cherokee Nation, Indian Territory. Their second son Howard was born 1 July 1901 in Kansas.
By the time of the 1910 census, they are living in western Kansas, Syracuse, Hamilton County. James was supposed to have died in Kansas City Missouri in 1911. To this day I have not been able to find exactly when and where he died.

Emma shows up next, with her two son, she was married to Henry Zelgar on 19 February 1913, Nowata Co., OK. Henry was a widower. His wife Sarah Ellen Brown, had died on 20 October 1904, leaving him with 3 girls; Mary, Jo and Elva Zelgar (my grandmother).
