They come from the north of France, the department of Nord, the District of La Bassee. The area was formerly once the county of Flanders and the County of Artois.

Born in 1570 Thomas Billiou was his son. The data in the database and the Mormons, which can be found on Ancestry, soft, however, are different. Also to the person Jean Jacques Billiou are contradictory. There is a book (no longer available), in which the author about the family Billiou and the contradictions takes a position, as follows on this subject ... Mary Greenawalt Murphy in her book "Billiou/Bileau Family, including Polhemus and Seubring Families," 1991, published by the author, Claverack, New York, states that research has shown that a Jean Billiou accompanied son Pierre, when Pierre became betrothed at the Walloon church in Leyden, Holland. A first name of Jean was given in the church record and Jeacq or Jacques in the civil registration of the marriage (remember this was Holland, and official records would be in the Dutch language). The author notes that Jean is probably brother to Abigail and Anna Billiou and son of Thomas and Aime. Pierre is estimated to have been born Abt 1625. Aimee was buried 1 Jul 1621 in Leyden and is therefore more likely the grandmother of Pierre. .. Huguenot (a.k.a. French Protestant).

The pedigrees with the ancestors of Ann Aime Billiou (born Barlow) and their children Anna, married.

The Wedding of Anna was on 06/15/1624. Was (born in 1625) Pierre Billiou alongside Jean (* 1620), the second son of Jeacq Billiou (born about 1595). In connection with the various attributions is to say that the Billious französche were Protestants. This meant in those days, that was on the run or emigrated. So also understand that some data to the ancestors Billiou (Billau, Biljou, Balliou, Biljow) come from suffering and the emigrants (Abigail, married. Dunham, Anna, married.

That Pierre Billaud was the father of Esther Billiau (* 1758), which in turn with Pierre Lefevre (d Elder.) - Whose second marriage also - was married. This revealed that - can be traced back two parallel branches on Billiou Thomas and his wife Ann Aime, born Barlow - even schedule a generation. For one thing, there is the branch with Rachel Lefevre, born Billau - married to Pierre Lefevre (d Younger.) - My Urururgroßeltern and the branch with Esther Lefevre, born Billiau - married to Pierre Lefevre (d Elder.) - My Ururururgroßeltern

VIII. Pierre Billaud, born in 1720, was the brother of Isaac (see above); Pierre's daughter Esther, born Billau (* 1758), later a married Lefevre.
