BILYEU (BALEW in listing),Martin was listed in the 1880 Collin CO. census with wife (Mary IRBY)& daughter. He is my great grand father. He was born in 1860 I'm not sure where but possibly in MO. He died in OK in 1906 & was in OK as early as 1903. The person next to him on the census was BALLOW, John. I think both census spellings are corruptions & they may be brothers or cousins. Wishful thinking perhaps. Martin & Mary Married in Dallas Co. 1 July 1878 (name spelled Bauard in the typed version of that record) These are the only records I have. If anyone can help me I would be most grateful. Land records list him & at least tell me when he came to Collin Co. & when he left. Thanks so much for any help.
