Chasing footnotes down rabbit holes is one reason I get relatively little
accomplished, but I thought you'd get a kick out of the following reports
from The Nevada State Journal (Reno):
Francis Bolton Mallory was the youngest son of Smith H. Mallory's brother,
Albert D. "Bert" Mallory. Bert married the unfortunate Susie Kubitshek at
Chariton (then apparently divorced her during the mid-1890s) and they
produced Margaret and Meredith Mallory. Smith H.Mallory started Bert out at
Farmers & Miners Bank in Lucas, then apparently shipped him off to Kansas
when building railroads there. By 1895, Bert was back in Batavia, Illinois
(where Jane Henderson Mallory, mother of Smith H. and Bert, lived) where he
married Frances Bolton Hazen during 1895 and they produced Richard Henderson
and Francis Bolton Mallory.
Bolton passed the coffee at the Orlando wedding of his cousin, Jessie
(Mallory) Thayer, to William O'Neal, according to that report. Anyhow, here

Nancy Carroll Is Awarded Divorce At Carson City
CARSON CITY, Nov. 6 (UP) --- Nancy Carroll, red-haried screen actress,
today was granted a divorce decree by default from F. Bolton Mallory,
magazine author, on her charges of cruelty and non-support.
Mallory divorced the actress in Omtepec, Mexico, last July. But Miss Carroll
was understood to have insisted on obtaining her Nevada decree so that the
legality of her divorce could not be questioned.
It is rumored Miss Carroll intends to marry William van Renselaer Smith,
wealthy young attorney.
The Mallorys were married in Connecticut in 1931 and separated in Hollywood
in 1934, according to her secret complaint.
Soon after his Mexican divorce, Mallory married Carlotta Lobato, 15-year-old
daughter of a restaurant owner.
The divorce today was granted at a closed hearing by Judge Clark Guild, and
papers were sealed.
