Denver, Im not sure either. I do know that the light blue eyes have trailed down into my family and family members. Through the years our family members have married Blacks and Indians and the Blue eyes have been domanant.I know Thomas had red hair and the light blue eyes as do all my family members. I have to look for it but I found some years back a list of imigrants that came to the U.S. in the late 1600's. Their names were Peter and Hans Splon. They came from germany. I have allways been toldthat the Splawns were german and english. I hope this helps. May I ask what state you live in im in Texas.
