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
    • She was a tall, slender lady with a real "'backwoods" approach to life. She used to pick herbs and flowers below the cliff in back of C. H. Denbow's house in Athens when she lived there the last two years of her life. She would predict the weather by looking at the back sides of leaves on trees in the woods.

      Aunt Cora was a very kind person. Frequently when we visited her and my grandparents in Woodsfield she would give me some little gift. I still have a few of these in my possession, including a paperweight.
