Note for:   Malinda Scalf,   1837 - ABT 1875         Index

Individual Note:
     Malinda's husband, William Payne must have died prior to 1874. Malinda had an illegitimate son, Pharis, through Richard H. Holland, who was married to Elender. Richard's and Elender's legitimate son was born only three months after Pharis, and Malinda died a short time after Pharis was born. Malinda's father, Robert, died about this same time, so her mother, Martha, sent Pharis to live with Richard and Elender, who adopted him.

Death Note: Source:    Ancestors of Mary Elizabeth Scalf Lyons

Individual Note:
     Born in North Carolina, enlisted on May 30,1777 and fought in the Revolutionary War. Served for 3 years. Was wounded in the ankle by a musket ball. Served in 10th Regiment of the North Carolina Continental Line under General Nash, then under General Greene. Wintered with the then General George Washington at Valley Forge. It must be pointed out that although John Scalf had some legal troubles later in his life, he was true and loyal to his country. Some of his troubles may have been contributed to the wound he received and the fact that it left him crippled for the rest of his life.
