I am trying to put together a complete family
petigree chart and family group records of the Blackfords. I go all way back to
approximately 1560 in Warwick England. John Blackford born about 1560, Son
Nicholas, then Samual Blackford Sr. I belive Nicholas came to the New World in
the 1640s With a brother named Peter and landed in Plymouth, MA. Peter traveled
to Connecticut, and continued to New York and settle immediately west of New
York in New Jersey. Samual and Ann Smalley had somewhere between 12 and 16
children. I believe all the Blackford in America came from this initial family from
New Jersey. In the middle to late 1700s a Benjamin Blackford moved to South
Carolina. His Son William M Blackford became the first ambasador to New Ganada
(South America) from the United States After Bolivar kicked the Spanish out of
South America. He had two sons William Willis and Charles Minor Blackford that
served in the Civil War. Isaiah Blackford probably a brother or nephew to
Benjamin followed Daniel Boone into Kentucky. There the family moved into Ohio,
Indiana, and Illinois.
Another grand son of Samual Blackford Sr. Moved into PA. Several generations of
Blackfords lived in Lafeyette PA.
Right now I am gathering some 1200 names from the Social Security death records
and following these names backwards to the right family roots.
For a full accounting of the Blackford any information would be appreciated.
First give me you direct lines, (only deceased members). As far back as you can
get with records you have now.
Researching my Grandpa Guy b. Marion, Linn Co,IA. Need info on some of his siblings. Any help would be appreciated. Thank You Contact: Janet Blackford Peters 5309 Hwy. 75 N.#119 Sioux City, IA 51108
My husband's Great Grandfather was John Alexader Blackford born 1869 in Kentucky. He was married to Elizabeth or Della Hankins and had 2 daughters. Mossie B. Freeman (1893) & Mittie Phlying (1895). Mossie was my husband's Grandmother.John A. came to Texas in about 1901-02 with his 2 daughter's from his first marriage. John's second wife was Ethel Mae Wade. Seven children were born to this marriage. John died in the 1950's. We don't know much information beyond that. Hope someone can share info with me. Like who John A. Blackford's parents were and where were they from before Kentucky, etc........
we have e-mailed before on the Mack's and Freeman.
I didn't realize that there may be more kin than I
thought. Are your Wilkerson related to Mary Jane Mack
and Samuel Houston Wilkerson ?She was Jessie Mack's
eldest daughter. They had 3 sons and 2 daughters.
I would appreciate any information you have
on Mittie Blackford and the Phlying Family
