My name is Theresa Bolyard Newton. I am the daughter of the late John Wesley Bolyard, Jr. an the late Marlene Ivy Deitz Bolyard. I have been doing family research for years but the last 2 years seriously. The Bolyard name was originally Balliet, Balliette, Bailliet, Baillote, etc. among others. I'm just trying to find where my ancestors came from!
