My name is Christy Gilbert. I am trying to trace my husbands heritage. Hopefully to prove a Native American Link. So far I have the Following information: His grandfather is James Paul DeLoach, Son of Sam Deloach and Verona G. Boliew. Verona is the daughter of Thomas Richard Boliew (who I believe is the same person as Thomas W. Bellew) and Mary Jane Ware. I understand that Mary Jane is the Daughter of Miles Fuller ware and Eddy Murphy. And that is as far back as I can get. I can not find the parents of Eddy or Miles. And Thomas Boliew changed his name every time he married. Do you have any more information or have I completely confused you. I would greatly appreciate ANY help.
I have a message from a message board that states:" I am looking for info on Thomas Bellieu. He married 3 times and changed the spelling of his last name every time he married. First Wife Tresa Terrell. Second Wife Effie Paulk. Third Wife Mary Jane Ware. Thomas was born around 1852."
Ok. here we go.
Thomas Wear Bellew Born: June 15, 1852, Died: Feb. 2,1928, Married: (1) Effie Polk who was born Jan. 12, 1844 Married (2)Tresa Terrell
Thomas Richard Boliew Born: Unknown, Died: Unknown, Married: Mary Jane Ware who was born 1852.
Thomas R and Mary had a child named: Thomas W. Boliew born on 6/15/1892
I think that (the first) Thomas Wear Bellew and Thomas Richard Boliew are the same Person.
