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.

Richard Gramlich in 2003 said about his biological father, mother and his adoptive father: "Emma Pearl (known by everyone as Pearl) was born 5-8-1917 in Monroe County. She had an out-of-wedlock son in 1934 [that's me]. She was 16 when the child was conceived, 17 when born. The father, a Michael Zlate, age 23 at the time, upon learning of the pregancy, took off, never to be seen again & hardly ever heard of. Recent resarch indicates he had 3-4 successful meat markets in Cleveland, Ohio. He married & died in Cleveland. He is survived only by 2 living daughters. One son died in a boating accident when he was in his 20s. The out-of-wedlock son acknowledges only that he was his biological father -- absolutely nothing more.  He regards his father as Otto Joseph Costa, Emma Pearl's husband. He was everything a father should be -- an excellent father in all ways. Thank you Dad!!!!"
