These are the children of William Maltby, the names, etc. of his father's family are committed in the letter of Stephen L. Maltby. William Maltby died in Worthington, Franklin Co., Ohio, 1836 in the 67 year of his age.

My Mother Rachel Maltby is still living in Ashtabula.
               Affectionately & sincerely Yours,
                             Benj. K. Maltby"

"To Rev. Jonathan Maltby."

*Note. Benjamin Kerr Maltby gives only four children. Accord- ing to Col. Ralph Robinson Maltby, there was a son Clayton. He had probably died quite young.

Also, Benjamin K. gives the children of Daniel as "Lydia and Ann." My notes give the children as "Lydia Ann, b. 1844, and Flor- ence Isabella, b. 1848."

We can date the foregoing record, roughtly, from the statement that William Wesley Maltby "has two daughters, now aged four and one, respectively." The daughters, as sent me, were: Lydia Marie, b. 1845 and Helen Marr, b. 1852. Probably the record was written about 1849-1850.

     Children of Benjamin Kerr Maltby and Harriet S. Butler:
          (according to records sent)
CFE-DCD-a.  Alice Maltby
CFE-DCD-b.  Mary     "    One of these daughters "was an artist and
CFE-DCD-c.  Julia    "    m. Lieut. Shelby.  One resided in Louis-
CFE-DCD-d.  Ellen    "    ville, Kentucky in 1880."

Col. Ralph R. Maltby wrote: "There was a son Clayton." If so,

he probably died young or was born after the record of Benj.

K. Maltby was written. Rev. Benjamin Kerr Maltby painted the portrait of Col. Ralph R. Maltby's father.
