PATRICK J. MALOY, the genial and popular proprietor of the Kromer House, Scottdale, Pennsylvania, is a native of that state, born in North Uniontown, June 15, 1867, son of Patrick and Mary (Mullen) Maloy, both natives of county Galloway, Ireland. They came to the United States about 1851-52, visited different localities, and finally located in Pittsburg where they remained until 1865, when they took up their abode in Fayette county and have since resided there. Patrick Maloy served the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Company for many years as section boss, but is now leading a retired life, enjoying the competence he accumulated during his years of activity. Their family consists of four children: John, employed as clerk in the Kromer House, conducted by his brother, Patrick J. Maloy; Mary; Patrick J., mentioned hereafter; and Matthew, engaged in the construction of iron at Indianapolis. Indiana.
Patrick J. Maloy was reared and educated at Uniontown, his birthplace, and in the spring of 1900 engaged in the hotel business at Masontown, Pennsylvania, under the firm name of Maloy and Johnson, but the following year, December 18, came to the borough of Scottdale and has since assumed complete control of the Kromer House. Under his efficient management the hotel has been entirely renovated, and is now the leading hostelry in that local. The house contains forty-five rooms, which are cheerful and well furnished, and the table is abundantly supplied with the best that the market affords. No one more fully understands or better provides for the entertainment and accommodation of the public than Mr. Maloy, who is ever obliging and courteous, and in this way he has secured a large and liberal patronage. His political affiliations are with the Democratic party, but in local politics he casts his vote for the candidate who in his opinion is best suited for office. He is a member of Scottdale Lodge, No. 777, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. November 24, 1896, Mr. Maloy was married to Grace McNally, and they are the parents of four children: Raymond J., Josiah T., John Donald and Arnold Edward. The family are members of the Catholic church.
