I have, on my mother's side of the family, a strong Irion line. John Snyder Irion is my grandfather, and was born in Illinois in 1876. His father was Jacob Irion and he was born on June 12, 1837 in Wurtemberg, Germany. His wife was Louisa Schneider and she was born on Oct. 20, 1845 in Bavaria. Also, I have another relative who was born in that part of the world, emigrated to America and was born in Reading, Pa. in 1860.
