Genealogy of three Balliet families. Paulus Balliet (1717-1777) emigrated from France to Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania in 1738. He married Marie Magdalena Wotring (1721-1802). Joseph Balliet was born in Lorraine, France, son of Abraham Baillet and Susanna Hahn. Joseph came to the U.S. in 1749 and settled in Heidelberg Township, Pennsylvania. Johannes Balliet (1746-1831) settled in Sugar Loaf Valley, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania in 1784. Many descendants lived in Pennsylvania. Others are scattered throughout the U.S.
