THE BALLEW's
may have been religious (non-catholic) refugees from Flanders/France, who emigrated to America. Family oral history, through great-uncle Earl Ballew, says "two brothers came from France and settled near Lynchburg, Virginia; one brother married and had a family; the other did not."

LILLIE MARSHALL's family
lived about 50 miles inland of Galveston, TX and weathered the devastating 1900 hurricane; hand-in-hand they made their way to their shelter; theirs was one of three homes standing in their town the next day. Lillie's lineage, through her maternal grandmother, appears to link to Simon de Montfort usurper of the English throne in 1265; the Plantagenet kings of England; their Norman forebear Henry I of England; Louis VI of France; Russian Grand Dukes of Kiev back to 877; Charlemagne; kings of Sweden, Norway and Finland back to the 200's; King Coel of Britain born 125 A.D.; Clodius II King of the West Franks died 20 A.D.; and other historic figures.

THE MINTON's
are said to be related to the famous Minton pottery/china founders in the United Kingdom.

THE STRICKER's
were German farmers living near the Volga River in Russia, who emigrated to Canada then to the United States.
