I have virtually no knowledge of this ancestors. I do know that Broyles is an Americanized form of German Breil or Breyhel, a variant of Bruehl. I believe they arrived from Germany in the early 1700s and settled at the Germanna Colony in Virginia.
The only thing I know about great-grandfather James Hendrickson were the stories told by my Aunt Helen. One was his talking about a prairie fire in Kansas and another of an Indian raid in Kansas. I bet he had some fascinating stories – just wish someone would have saved them.
