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
    • A certificate of baptism for Frederick, b.31 March 1844, gives his parents as Anna Gilgen of Riieggisberg (it may be Rueggisberg -- spelling unclear) and Frederick Gigax, s. of Jacob of Bleienbach. Jacob Gigax is a witness, b. of the son. This inforamtion is from a chart given to Russell Arndts by a woman named Ruth.

      It appears that Frederick and Hannah came to the USA in 1851. The last child recorded to have been born in Switzerland is Sophia (b.1851).

      After coming the the USA, the spelling of the last name was changed in this branch of the family from GYGAX to GIGAX. Other branches maintained the Old World spelling.
