John Bojalad, of Lebanon.

Postby moxie » 10 Feb 2008, 03:40

Here is all I can find of him:

Birth Date: 8 Feb 1910
Death Date: 11 Nov 1998


Death Residence Localities
ZIP Code: 15801
Localities: Du Bois, Clearfield, Pennsylvania
Dubois, Clearfield, Pennsylvania

He was my great grandpa, all I know is that he came over on Ellis Island and he was I think 14.

Could the name possibly be Bojallad?

I thought the same thing, so probably yes. I'm just curious as to how it got somehow legally changed. If they had it recorded as Bojalad, then I'm not sure when it dropped the second L.
My great-grandma is still alive, and she spells her last name with the one L, and from what I remember, so did my great-grandpa.

I haven't, but I don't know who that would be. His mom, maybe? It could be anyone. I've never heard of a Marrie Bojallad. I do know that my relatives came from Beirut, which is what I assume they meant when they wrote "Beyrouth".
