Hello all Belins and others who may or are related to the Belins. Starting from the top: my mother told me that my grandmother's maiden name was Josephine Lewis or Louis. My grandmother's mother died giving birth to her and so my grandmother's grandmother raised her. My grandmother's grandmothers' name was Eva Belin Lewis or Louis. My grandmother had a brother named Sam Lewis or Louis. Now, my grandfather's name was Henry Belin. He had a brother named Anderson Belin. Henry's nephews were:Pervis Belin, Moses Belin, Garland Belin and Earl Belin. Earl died last year or year before last I think. Earl Belin lived on Bristow Street in Bronx, New York. He has 2 sons :Calvin Belin and Alphonso Belin who I believe still live in New York. Henry Belin, my grandfather, has 2 nieces:Flossie Belin and Delores Belin. Delores Belin resides in either Orange or West Orange , New Jersey and she is a school teacher. Delores's husband's name is Benjamin Lemmon who I was told , has his own history show on television in New York. My grandfather, Henry Belin died at the age of 68 or thereabouts on March 31,1960 or in 1962. While living, Henry Belin worked at Providence National Bank at 46th and Market Street in Philadelphia. He was the groundskeeper there and he retired at about age 65. He served in World War I. He and my grandmother are buried next to each other in the military cemetary in Beverly, New Jersey. Now some more about my grandmother, Josephine Belin. She had a sister named Idell Donnelley whose husband's name is Dave Donnelley who were or still are from Kingstree, South Carolina. They have 5 children named: Burine Donnelley who lives in Washington,Gladys Donnelley who also lives in Washington, Toppy (is her nickname because she is so tall) her real name, my mom cannot remember, there's Dave Donnelley, and Ernestine Donnelley who both graduated from Grambling State College. My grandmother was born in the year1901.
My mother mentioned cousin Evalee Quick who now resides in Philadelphia and she has a son named Johnny who also lives in Philadelphia.He was a security guard last and may very well still be.
Okay , that is all of the information that I have and know right now. If anyone knows anyone or any more information about these line of Belins , please let me know.

Thank You,
Jane E. Belin
(last name taken from my grandmother at birth)

Hello,
I reconize most of the names you mentioned.
Anderson Belin was my grandfather. Henry was his brother.
Anderson lived in Latta SC and had 10 children whom are all deceased now. There were six more siblings you didn't mention, one of them was my father Herbert; I have 5 siblings all living, 3 children and two grandchildren. I met great Uncle Henry's son in the late 70's or early 80's before he became a Bishop in the A.M.E.Church. I believe he has two sons who ars also AME Ministers.

Hello merby50. How are you today? I saw your message and decided to write to you. Well,Perhaps you can give me all the fill in stuff that you said that I missed. Please help me. I am the granddaughter of Henry Belin the oldest and I have two sisters and a brother. My name is Jane Elizabeth Belin, named after my grandfathers daughter(my aunt), who was named after a sibling from Florida(daughter my grandfather had before he married my grandmother.I believe her name to be or have been Lizzie Bessie Belin. Anyway, I live in Las Vegas with my three children, they are all grown except one and she will turn 17 on May 5. I also am a grandmother now. He is 1. My sister Kim is out here with me and my family(she has no children). My youngest sister Deborah has 3 children too and she still lives in Philadelphia. Our mother Ernestine Hopson passed away in November of 2002. Her sister and our aunt Jane passed away not long after her in about 2004. Cousin Catherine I still sometimes call, I did the other day but, maybe she didn't want to be bothered and she hung up. I will try again soon. My uncle Frank William Scott lives in Maryland with his son, Billy. We don't talk to them because they don't want to be bothered or maybe because my aunt Jane has passed and they are still feeling the crunch. I really don't know why. Well please feel free to write to me and there are so many people that we don't know in our family that hopefully before some more of us pass away we will all get to know one another. It is all so important. Talk to you soon.
