Hi Uncle Walter - was perusing and found your post. You have talked to Todd, yes? Todd has done quite a bit of geneological research on the Irion side and got us back to some villages in Alsace Lorraine and I think about the 1500s... you should give him a call. He's got it all documented and so on. Call Mom and Dad's for Todd's latest contact info, or email me back. Miss you and hope all is well. I would love to have some pictures of your dad and mom and Aunt Mary, if you have them.
