The presentation tells the story of the Malloch clan from Scotland, emigrating to the North of Ireland along with other “Planters” in the late 1600’s or early 1700’s and settling around Dungannon in South Tyrone. There the family worked hard as tenant farmers and cattle drovers for more than a century before emigrating to the New World. They settled in Huron County, establishing the village of Dungannon. By then, their name had evolved to Mallough. They continued to work hard, pulling themselves up by their bootstraps, procreating enthusiastically, and became prominent citizens in the County before spreading to Bruce County and across the continent.
