Family lore has it that my gr-gr-grandfather, Joseph Gillaum (Guillaume), was a recognized illigitimate child of one of the Napoleon's. Not exactly sure which one. Supposedly he was born in France, then was sent to live with a family in Belgium. Came to the U.S. when he was 17. Could speak 7 languages. Married a woman from VA, and settled in Tiffin, OH. Have further info on his children, born about 1870's.
Would appreciate any help of reference to learn if this is just a "story" or fact.
