Nathaniel and Abiah are the progenitors of all of the Mallorys of Mallorytown. They are buried In the cemetery at Mallorytown, apparently In one grave, having a tombstone inscribed

also Abiah wife of the above who died March 15, 1828 aged 82 years

In 1936 Visa Huldah Mallory of Mallorytown stated that her great- grandmother was Abiah, wife of Nathaniel Mallory. Her father's genealogical record gives the name Abiah. Abiah (Beardslee) Mallory was undoubtedly a first cousin of Henry French, the Loyalist.
