Ardeth Children of Lloyd and Ardeth Molby: XI. gen. 1. Ladina Sue Molby, b. May 14, 1964, at Genesee Memorial Hospital in Batavia, New York. 2. Katrina Ann Molby, b.

The writer of this biographical sketch was eight years old when Clarissa, widow of John (6) Molby, came with most of her married sons and daughters to make their homes in and about Green- leaf, Kansas. These were the Molby kin of the writer in his childhood. Aunt Clarissa died soon after Lloyd's grandfather, George Hervey, and Fred A. Molby matriculated at Baker University. For most of four years at Baker George and Fred were roommates. So it happened that we knew each other's families very well. George Hervey Molby farmed his father's homestead and about 1920 they sold out and he and his sister moved with their families to Weslaco, Texas, which was then a newly developed settlement. They remained there during their lifetimes, to ripe old ages. My wife and I visited them there in 1948. George, son Hervey and wife, and his grandson Lloyd and his wife have all visited me here at Baldwin, Kansas. It was my esteemed privilege to go with Lloyd and his wife to meet several of Lloyd's Molby relatives and to show him his great-grandfather's homestead on which the Maple- wood Cemetery at Barnes, Kansas, has come to be a landmark. The graves of a number of Lloyd's ancestral relatives are located there, among them his great-great-grandmother's, (Clarissa, widow of John (6) Molby), his great-grandparent's (Molby), and graves of his grandfather's uncles and aunts who were some of Clarissa's children. In his father's automobile shops Lloyd became an adept mechanic. He also studied in trade schools. At an early age he became associated with the Trojan Division of Yale & Towne, Inc., Batavia, New York; tractor shovels are in his line. As of 1964 his business card indicates he is Manager of Advanced Engineering, and another card refers to him as Director of Development and Design. As of February 1967 his address is 4990 Barrville Road, Elba, New York, near Batavia. / Fred A Molby /
