    Does anyone know what relation his grandmother Grace Mallory has to Joseph Clyde Mallory? She is listed as his relative here:

    Joseph was the son of Rita Torres.

    There are church records of an Elisa Graciela Mallory born to a Rita Mallory in Caracas, but she is too close in age to Joseph to be his brother.

    There was a Venezuelan-born Rita Torres in New York in 1940, who had children with the surname Mallory.
