Through the gaps they came, crossing valleys, fording streams and rivers, climbing hills, mountains and slopes, these soldiers of the Revolution. They were planters, traders and trappers, husbands, mothers and sons. Daughters, wives and fathers came, slowly, strenuously forging their ways through the wilderness, cutting futures out of the wild and untamed new Continent. They became part of the fabric of America, the New Land talked about around the world, the land of freedom, hope and opportunity. They were part of the early struggles with France and England, they traded and lived alongside the American Indians, and fought for their respective sides in the countrys devastating Civil War. Their descendants live today because of their foresight, their fortitude, their eagerness to better themselves, their bravery, and their commitments to others. Lets never forget their dreams, their hopes and their sacrifices. We live today the magic they hoped for us.
Were in the process of researching the John B. and Mary Molloy (Maloy?) family of Cincinnati, OH so if you have any information regarding this line it is most warmly appreciated. Somewhat unique in family histories, what you will find here are stories of people who are mostly related to each other by blood and so also to many of us Vaught/Jasper/Trusty/Molloy researchers. If youre a descendant, youre most likely reading here about your own family!
Its with great appreciation that we acknowledge the myriads of Vauught/Jasper/Trusty/Molloy and allied family members whove shared their personal family information so generously. The information contained in these pages is the result of the work of many people over many decades, which, along with our own research compiled over the last several years, is an on-going labor of love for all citizens of the world. Were open to and welcome wholeheartedly all additions and corrections. What youll find here are different lines: about ten generations of descendants of John Paul Vaught 1680-1761 who came from Germany, the same number of descendants of Lancelot Jasper and Rose Shepard (born mid 1500s) of Redgrave, Suffolk, England whose son John Lancelot Jasper, b.1592/93 and wife Sarah Sheppard came to America, settling first in Richmond, VA in the early 1600s. Youll also find seven generations of the Trusty family from John Trusty born 1700 England, died 1760 Spottsylvania County, VA, and eleven generations of Bakers from William Baker b.abt.1653 England and, believe it or not! thirty-two generations down from William the Conqueror, King of England 1066-1087. Someone laughingly referred recently to us as the nearly regal Molloys. We liked the moniker and hopefully itll stick! ;)
This site is dedicated with loving appreciation to our Grandmothers, Fannie Bonnie Vaught Trusty (1899-1947) and Mary Cohen Molloy (1869 -1923) and to our Grandfathers, Walter Vernon Trusty (1891-1945) and Daniel J. Molloy (1869-1937) and to our Mother, Marguerite Jean Trusty Molloy (1918-2000) and to our Father, Daniel Anthony Molloy (1909-1975) and to all our fore-parents who sacrificed much so that we might tell their stories someday.
Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will show thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee." Deuteronomy 32:7
"They are truly not gone, Unless they are forgotten."

Relationships, our degree of kinship, can be confusing. We use the term "cousin" to denote any relationship with another person that we share a common ancestor with. This may help you understand relationships.
