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.

Recollections of great-grandaughter, Gretchen Valentine:  

Gretchen knew Tena as "Grossmutter."  She remembers her walking down the street in her bedroom slippers eating a raw cucumber. (14 May 1994)  According to the recollections of Kathryn Tadsen Sharp, whenever her mother, Dora Tadsen, bought Grossmutter (Tena Lorenzen) a new dress, Tena would say, "that is the dress I'm going to be buried in."  Of course she went through about 10 dresses because she lived to be ninety-two!  Kathryn also said that Tena's three girls were so different from one another (in both physicaL appearance and personality), that you would never have known they were sisters.  Of course, she did not know Rosie who died at (about) age 10.
