BLILEY GENEALOGY -- BY FRANK ANDERSON BLILEY
Frank Anderson Bliley provides an extemporaneous review of his genealogy in answer to a request by his son, Frank Dawson Bliley. His extensive work on the family genealogy over the years made it possible. However, his recollection is frequently punctuated with apologies for his lack of notes or recollection. Even so, it is amazing what he does remember and it is great to hear it in his own voice.
He closes with a quick summation of the letter his father, Charles Arthur Bliley, wrote in 1897 to his grand daughter providing the background story on why and how his family came to America from Germany. A faithful transcription of letter is available on this Web site as well as photos of the letter itself.

Special Note: Frank Bliley's fuzzy recollection that his grandfather, Andrew Bliley, did come to America in 1834 alone. The ship passenger list lists his brother, Sebastian Bliley as traveling with Andrew.
