Alright, so this is my first foray into Kious genealogy. I was able to build a crude family tree through what information was available on here, but I want more. I want it to be correct.
My name is Andy Kious, from Mattoon, Illinois living in Germany with my wife and son. My grandmother Ruth (wife of Eldon Dean) did some research, I'm not sure how much and I currently don't have access to it yet.
My Great-x2 Grandfather was Gilbert Kious, son of Jasper and like many on here the line goes to Nicolas (or a "Nathan") who may or may not have been married to a Frances Valentine.
I don't have much to give in terms of information, but I am looking to gain knowledge, be it through letters, certificates, photos, or whatever.
I'd just like to be able to tell my son where we come from...besides Illinois.
