Georgeann ancestors include:

Bridget (McFARLAND) MALONEY, born Ireland and Isaac MALONEY, born Ireland are listed as the parents of John MALONEY/MALOWNEY (7 Mar 1816-11 Apr 1911) on his death certificate.

We are unsure if this ceritificate mispelled the last name as MALONEY since John's descendents spell it with a "W" but his brother's descendents spell it MALONEY. My aunt thought that John Malowney came to the U.S. in the late 1820s but I haven't been able to document this. So it would seem likely that his parents came with him since he would have been only 14 years old  in 1830. My aunt also thought that John and his brother Dennis were born in Galway, Ireland, but again we have not been able to document this yet. It is quite likely that when she was collecting information in the 1970s, she learned found MALOWNEY listed in County Galway and simply thought they might be related to us.

John MALOWNEY/MALONEY died in Dayton, MD and was buried in St. Louis Cemetery,   Ellicott City, Howard County, MD on 14 Apr 1911. Howard County was formed from Anne Arundel County, MD. During the civil war, John's brother Dennis went to Massachusetts. John married Bridget LAWLESS and his brother Dennis married her sister, Catherine LAWLESS.

Research plan:

1) Maryland Archives might have death certificates for Bridget (McFarland) MALONEY/MALOWNEY and Isaac MALONEY/MALOWNEY.
