There's a place, now our own, That is vacant and lone,
Since the angels took Mother away;
Though we know she's at rest With the pure and the blest, Still we miss her sweet presence each day.

Daniel Albertus Malloy was born April 30, 1876 at Linn County, Missouri and died in the Clinton hospital at 7:20 p.m. Saturday, February 10, 1951, at the age of 74 years, 10 months, and 10 days.
He had been in ill health many months but was seriously ill only about a week.

Funeral services were held at the Leedey Methodist church at 2 p.m. Monday, February 12, with the pastor, Rev. V. V. Voss in charge.
Interment was in New Herman cemetery.

Mr. Malloy came to Oklahoma while he was a small child. He lived at Perkins, in the eastern part of the state, until 1905, when he moved to Ellis county.

He was married to Miss Ada Grace Allington in 1900 at Lyons, Kansas. Six children were born to this union, four sons and two daughters, all of whom survive, except a daughter, Gila, who died in infancy. The others are: Lloyd of Pampa, Texas; Mrs. Gladys Foster of Skellytown, Texas; Wayne of Hollis; Arlie of Pryor; and Neil of Shamrock, Texas.

Mr. Malloy with his wife and two oldest children moved to a farm 8 miles southwest of Leedey in 1912, where they resided four years, establishing a home in town in 1916. For about two years he traveled as a salesman, later doing carpentry work which was his occupation until retirement. During the past three and one half years, following Mrs. Malloy demise in 1947, he had made his home with his daughter, Mrs. Foster, at Skellytown.

He was a member of the Methodist church in Leedey, having placed his membership here October 12, 1925, during Rev. H. A. Stroud's pastorate.

Besides his children he leaves two brothers, Luther Malloy and John Stone both of Perkins; two sisters, Mrs. Eunice Adams of Gotebo and Mrs. Ethel Noah of Borger, Texas; 10 grandchildren and 4 great great grandchildren.

A kind and loving father, a quiet friendly neighbor who always was ready to help his fellow man, and a God-fearing follower of the principles of the Christian religion, he will be missed by all who knew him.
