Hillbillies & Vikings

This site is focused broadly on all descendants of John Denboe, an indentured servant who came to the Crown Colony of Maryland in about the year 1664. Also, it maintains a special emphasis on the descendants of John Denbow (1797-1862) and his brother Bazeleel (1795-1857), early pioneers in the hills of Southeastern Ohio, as well as the descendants of Jón Jónsson (1841-1934) of Dalasýsla, Iceland, who was an Icelandic immigrant to Canada and now has progeny throughout North America.

    Anecdote 7 Aug 1994  [1
    • By the time of diagnosis, his lung cancer had spread to the brain. He received a few weeks of chemotherapy and died as a result of septicemia (blood infection), secondary to the treatment itself. That is, his immune system did not recover from the effects of the chemotherapy, which allowed the infection to run wild [There was some disagreement among his doctors whether the brain or the lung cancer were primary.]
