Mallory, Price (30 MAR 1848 - 16 MAR 1905)

The subject of this sketch was one of the pioneers of the town of Loyal, Clark County, Wis. He was born at Meaford, Canada March 30, 1848. He was left fatherless at the age of eight and from that time until he grew to manhood he made his home with his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Hallock, who lived at Iron Ridge, Wis.

With the tide of emigration moving northward they left their home in the last named place and came to the town of Loyal, taking up their home on what was afterward known as the old Hallock homestead, which is located just south of the village and a part of it is now owned and occupied by John Arquette.

Here it was that Price grew to manhood and is well known to all the first settlers that are now living in this vicinity. To these he is remembered as a jovial good-natured boy and young man. His genial disposition remained with him through life and he was always known to be optimistic in times of adversity as well as in prosperity. He was a man of business ability and acquired a goodly portion of this world's good, but his means were somewhat reduced in his last years, owing to the frequent changes of location and their attendant sacrifices mad necessary by his failing health.

In 1864 he enlisted in the Union Army, with which he served until the close of the war.

After the war he went to his boyhood home in Canada where he was married to Miss Susan Hallock in 1870. Here Mr. and Mrs. Mallory made their home for several years. From this place he moved his family to Manitoba, Canada, where he engaged in farming, real estate and the mercantile business. In this enterprise he met with more than ordinary success and accumulated considerable property. His health began to fail here and he sold his property and moved to California, which was about three years ago. Before going he paid Loyal and his old friends with a visit. He was a brother-in-law of G. W. Allen.

Not being benefited by the California climate, he again sold out and went to Texas, buying a cotton plantation. This in turn he was obliged to dispose of and he returned to Wisconsin, taking up his home at Stevens Point, where he died of bronchial trouble on March 16, 1905. The funeral services were held at Stevens Point and the remains brought to Granton and buried in the Granton Cemetery by the side of his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Hallock.

Mr. Mallory leaves to mourn his loss, besides a large circle of friends, a wife, who within the last year became totally blind, two grown sons, James, a resident of California, and Wilson a minister of the Gospel, living at Stevens Point, and two daughters, who with their mother, will make Loyal their home for the present.
