My middle name is Ion, as was my father's and grandfather's. I am curious as to where it came from. My grandfather, Ernest Ion Motley was born in Friestatt, MO )Lawrence Co.) on October 2, 1894. His parents were William J. Motley and Mary E. Shipman. I suspect that the Ion middle name came from Mary Shipman's family since there is no record of an Ion in the Motley chain since James arrived here in 1666.
