DeGolyer as a first name
Posted by: Lelia Date: June 30, 2000 at 08:50:00
  of 46

My Grandfather was DeGolyer Loren Straight b.9-7-1861 in Michigan. I have not been able to trace his family beyond his parents. Did any of your families marry into a Straight or Allen family? His Parents were William C. Straight b. 1821 and Maryette Allen b.1832. Since grandpa and 1 cousin are the only ones I have ever heard use this as a 1st name I am thinking it might be a family name. Thank you.
