Recently I have been researching the Lewiston, Maine Malos. One thing I noticed on ancestry.com was that there was a lot of confusion on this line so I thought I would relay that line here and I request that anyone who has information to add to this Malo line or if there are corrections I need to make, please message me below. I do have 5th and 6th generations, but I have omitted them here for privacy.
The Lewiston Malo line originates from two sons of Pierre Hayet dit Malo (1810-1899) and Charlotte Amiot (1818 – 1881). These sons are: 1. Louis Pierre Hayet dit Malo (1843-1894) and 2. Charles Hayet dit Malo (1854-1914). These brothers emigrated from Quebec to Lewiston, Maine.
The main point of confusion is the four Joseph E Malos as they have been mixed up in various trees on ancestry.com. I wanted to delineate these four Josephs here. Two of these Josephs are not from this line, but they have been confused with it. I hope this will lead to some conversation as to the details of these Malo cousins:
The birth record below should resolve the third point of confusion. This record is for Jean Baptiste Stanislaus Malo, better known as Stanislaus B. Malo, the one mentioned above. Though most people on ancestry.com have him born in Lewiston, Androscoggin, Maine, USA, he was born in St-Damase, Québec, Canada. Next to the birth record is a photo of Marie Florida Malo, sister of Jean Baptiste Stanislaus Malo.
