I tryed to e-amil you, but it bounced back so I post it instead. I just found your post on "genforum.com" I feel that my FIERS line could have come from Belgium in the early 1700s. FIERS is not a very common name here in the U.S. and it is almost always misspelled and mispronounced. But,
the same spelling has survived for 300 years here in the U.S. when it would have
been much easier (on all of us) to have changed it. We pronounce it like as
"fires". How do you pronounce it?
Do you know of any early 1700 FIERS that had a son named William who disapeared from Belgium? We know "our" William was in Sussex Co., Virginia in 1770 and probably earlier. He named his sons William, Jr, John, Drury, and Thomas, and a daughter named Lucretia or "Crisey". We haven't been able to find him on any ship list. He must have been a man of meager means because
he never owned any land.
Do you know of any migration patterns from Belgium during the 1700s? Thanks for any help you can give. It would be great to find a connection back to Holland.
