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.

    • He died of smallpox. The Pension Office ruled that his death was not "service related" because there was no smallpox in camp when he left for home. The family spent years appealing this denial, and there is a very large pension file at the National Archives. It's is unclear whether or not the denial was ever reversed. The last denial on record, though undated, appears to have been in 1899.

    • This marriage date, which differs by exactly one year from the one recorded in the Marriage License book for Harford County appears to be correct. I suspect a clerical error in the book.
