Greg Vonda writes:
What we know:  My stand on Isaac's parentage is-I ain't gonna take one.  As far as I'm concerned, the jury is still out.  That he is connected to the French Hugenot Billiou os Staten Island, NY/Six Mile Run, Somerset Co. NJ, there appears to be no doubt.  How he is related, however, despite the extensive research done by both Bilyeu and workman researchers, is still up in the air.
