One of my relatives, not sure how many generations back, was Abraham Darby and was instrumental in developing the process to make steel out of iron. He was from northern Brittan. His family moved to the US and settled in Kentucky and then on into Missouri and Iowa. The family on my mother's side came here from Germany. Not sure of the time they immigrated here, but my great grandmother spoke fluent German and had such a strong accent that as a kid I could not understand anything she would say.
My great grandmother on Dad's side was quite an old lady, she smoked a pipe and chewed tobacco and cussed like a sailer, I only saw her one time, not long before she passed away but that was a real experience. She raised 12 kids, that I can remember, never met them all, no wonder she cussed.
