Balsom may be his mother's maiden name. An older couple appears on the 1850 Ohio census in Union Co. in proximity with the Bailey family. We have a family(?) photo of an Indian couple in mostly Euopean dress of the Civil War period. Oral history was that Balsom was part Indian through his mother, a second wife look down on by her step-children. Please see messages in the Bailey Msg Board for more info including complete listing of Balsom's parents and siblings. Tricia

To Peggy,
Thanks for your note, my ggrandfather came from Tavistock, Devon England, as far as I know he was the only member of his family to come to the U.S. He traveled directly to the Upper Peninsula. It is not a common name, but I don't think we have any Indian blood on that side of my family. Jerry
