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
    • In a letter to Susan Sharp from Laura Wagner of Carroll County, Ohio, dated August 15, 1994, Mrs. Wagner states that Iona Albaugh Burrier's uncle was Solomon Albaugh, husband of Kesiah Sharp. Mrs. Burrier wrote a little history of the Kilgore Area, Goose Run, and Mingo. In this booklet which is in the possession of Laura Wagner, Mrs. Burrier indicates that Martha Denbow is the daughter of Elias Sharp. She also says that Martha was born in 1798 and married John Denbow in Harford County, Maryland in 1818. Martha went to Monroe County, Ohio and she had six sons who served in the Civil War.

    • 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.
