Hi Carol,
I just found your posting regarding the origins of the name Loyall. From a Dieter Loyall in western Germany my family has recieved verification that the Loyall name is French. Dieter and my family were Huegonots(Protestants) driven from the Metz area of France in 1686 by Catholic persecutions. Our Loyall line ended up near the Lithuanian border by 1711.
I would venture that the USA Loyalls also are of Huegonot ancestry and came west instead of east, as my Loyalls did.
I hope this is of help. Gary L. Wiese
