This week’s blogging prompt is the State of Tenneesee. Blog about an ancestor or your families connection to Tenneesee. If you don’t have any connections to Tenneesee, find a Tenneesee resource useful for genealogy research to highlight and write about. This week’s prompt runs from 4/21/2013 – 4/27/2013. If you choose to follow along, I would appreciate a mention to the Hidden Genealogy Nuggets website.
Robert David Malone was born in Fayetteville, Lincoln County, Tennessee on 23-June-1916. He was married to my 1st cousin once removed, Lillian Ruth Dorman. The reason I’m writing about his connection rather than any other connections to Tennessee is the work that his wife Lillian Ruth Dorman was instrumental in putting together so much of the family history before the rise of computers to do genealogy research.
Lillian Ruth Dorman visited my father back in the 1970s through the early 1990s in part to gather information about the family history. She with her sister Dorothy M. Stroble wrote a genealogical publication entitled “One Dorman Family of Connecticut & Allied Lines Laurie Banks”. A copy of this publication is at the Connecticut State Library.
Lillian was born on the 3rd of September in 1918 in New Britain, Connecticut. Robert and Lillian had three children.Lillian died on June 4, 1994 in Saint Petersburg, Pinellas County, Florida. Almost exactly one year later, Robert died on Jun 28, 1995 also in Saint Petersburg, Pinellas County, Florida.
