Michael Malone was born in New Ross County, of Wrexford Ireland, on the 25th of July, 1798. He studied with an apothecary in Dublin, attended lectures on anatomy, and received a surgeon's license. His family removed to Montreal and subsequently came to Albany, where he was licensed by the Medical Society of the State of New York in 1826. After several years in Albany, he removed to Philadelphia, where he continued in his profession until his death, which took place on the 17th of July, 1844, he being forty-six years of age. Dr. Malone gained a considerable reputation as an accoucheur, and was a man of marked benevolence and kindness to the poor. A brother, Dr. Cesar Malone, resided a short time in Albany, but subsequently died in the South. Dr. Malone left one son, and one daughter; the former entered the military service in 1861.
