Igo Name Study, United States

According to family legend (as of yet unconfirmed by documentation), the Igo surname arrived in British Colonial America in 1767 when a Louis Igou (a.k.a. Henri Jourdain Louis Igouffe) came to Baltimore, Maryland with his bride Marie. He arrived as part of a Huguenot immigration from England, previously to England from France. His departure from France came about as he disgraced himself and his family name by marrying below his standing and therefore was disinherited.

From Maryland, his descendants spread to Pennsylvania and then Ohio, Kentucky (with Daniel Boone) and Texas.

To prove or disprove this legend, we will research all known Igo or variant names on all Federal and state censuses since they began, and work toward adding profiles for each entry or tying that entry to an existing profile.
