This is the person Malcolm was going to in Elmira NY - 1910 census 575 W Church St Elmira

Alicsondier (Alexander) P Morrow 55 years. Born NY. Both Parents born ireland. President of Manufacturing Co.
Susa C Morrow   51
Mable F Morrow   28
Mary E Morrow   12

Alexander married Susan Crane

Checked 1915 New York census but Malcolm was not with the family

Alexander P Morrow   60
Susa C Morrow   56
Mabel F Morrow   30
Mary Ethel Morrow   17
Anna A Malloy   27
Mary P Woodruff 21

Perhaps Malcolm went to work for the company A P Morrow was President of.

Interesting snippets -

Coaster brake invented by A P Morrow

http://www.rootschat.com/links/01l76/

https://www.google.co.uk/patents/US611073

Bicycles brought A.P. Morrow to Elmira in 1895 when the Eclipse Bicycle Co. moved here from Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania. Morrow was superintendent of the plant and inventor of the Morrow coaster brake. He left Eclipse in 1905 to establish his own business. In 1907, the Morrow Manufacturing Co. was organized in Elmira and capitalized at $25,000. His son, J. Edwin Morrow, was a partner, and they manufactured parts and supplies for automobiles and bicycles. Originally on LaFrance Street in 1909, the company moved to South Main Street and built a new plant in 1910 manufacturing machine parts, including orders from Glenn Curtiss, who was building airplanes in Hammondsport...............etc etc
