Comments:
I know quite a bit about my mother's side but very little of the
Name I have carried since birth it is hard to say where my grand father's line originated I know we have family in GA my grandfather was in the
AF so they traveled all over as my grandma was from newfoundland ca and they met and married and she came to the us her name us mary jessie blanton lockyer they had 5 kids Debbie born in TX, Allen Eugene born in SC (my dad) Ricky Albert born in 58 in NC died in Newfoundland in 82 James Henry born in 61 in NC died in Newfoundland in 82 and Mary Elaine born in 64 in NY died in May 2006 believe my great grand father was Henry James Blanton his wife was Elizabeth Jane can not remember her maiden name . I know so little because my grandma passed before I ever learned any of it what I know is what my mom knows and being that my grandfather really never spoke of home nor was he home much my grandmother also knew very little . Sadly my dad being the only son to live to have children has two daughters so this branch ends here. I just would love to know more if anyone can shine light on what little info I have

Earliest Known Blanton Ancestor Marion J Blanton
Comments:
My Gt Aunt Mary Esther Blackshields met Marion J Blanton in Cork City, Ireland during WWI when he served on USS Panther. They married and had Florence and then Mary Esther left Cork to live in South Carolina with her husband. They went on to have several more children. I can find them on 1920/30 censuses but can find no record of Marion on any earlier census or records. I know he was born on 7 May 1893 and died in September 1965 but would like to find out who his parents were etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated. All best wishes...Viv

Earliest Known Blanton Ancestor John Fondren
Comments:
I looked at your website and did not see any contact emails. I am hoping this reaches one of your researchers. I have strong reason to believe that there is a Fondren/Blanton connection in the late 1700's in North Carolina. I have a document where one Daniel Fondren assigned his right to a land grant in Tennesee in 1799 to a Charles Blanton and then to James Wilkins. Please get in touch with me at the above email address. Thanks!

Earliest Known Blanton Ancestor Reuben Blanton
Comments:
Thanks to the hard work of many I am able to trace my Blanton lineage from my mother Wauna Lee Blanton back to Reuben in Brunswick Co, VA in 1782 where he bought land from William Blanton. To shortcut a bit, the line goes: Reuben, Lewis, Edmund, William Newton, John Allen, William Thomas, Riley Eugene ... and then my mother Wauna Lee Blanton. The histories and inter-connections are fascinating. There are a lot of Blantons!

Earliest Known Blanton Ancestor Thomas Blanton
Comments:
I am almost certain that Thomas Blanton's parents were William Blanton & Elizabeth Mauzee. I think they got the year of his birth wrong tho. Once document stated 1839 & the other one listed as 1835. He was born in Estill County, KY which is where I was born. But on the 1870 & 1880 US Census, they were living in Kavanaugh,KY. I assume that he named his children Eliza & William after his parents. I also noticed one of Thomas daughter's names listed as Leathy or Lenthy. I think it was misspelled. I believe it was meant to be 'Leahy', which is an irish name. Looking at the William Blanton line, I came across the name Alitha "Leatha" HARRISON, & I also noticed that Thomas's brother, Alexander , whose daughter Sarah Ann Blanton had named her son, John Lewis - probadly after Thomas Blanton's son John L. Blanton. It just seems like a coincidence to me. What do you think?

Earliest Known Blanton Ancestor Thomas Blanton
Comments:
I am the great-great-granddaughter of Thomas & Mary Blanton. Not sure if there is any relations to your Blantons or not, but I am trying to find out lol. I have no idea of who his parents are. He is listed on the 1880 US Census. I havent been able to find anything more about him, his wife or his children after that time frame. It seems like they have disappeared or something. According to stories, I had heard as a kid was that they had came from England and set sail in Virginia. According to the 1880 US Census, they were living in Kavanaugh, KY. which is near the KY- VA line.

Thomas- born 1839
Mary - 1850

Children:
Eliza J. - 1867
Leathy - 1869
Mary - 1871
William - 1873
Lydia - Jan.1875 ~ This is my great grandma
Wilburn - 1878
John L. - 1880

Any help would be greatly appreciated : )

Found your website very helpful. Have several relatives that are working on the Blanton side. I know my Great Grand father was William Thomas Blanton and married Nellie Brown (b. 1865)... now trying to fill in the blanks. My mother's maiden name was Blanton, her father Emmet, whose father was William Thomas, whose father was Gazzaway Blanton, whose father was Obediah Blanton, whose father was William Blanton (1733) whose father was William Blanton (1678) whose father was Thomas Blanton (b. 1648)... There are way too many Davids, Williams, and Thomas. I hope that is correct. Thanks, Rita

Comments:
These are my biological parents, I am looking for any information on this line. I believe he may have been born in NE or KY. He divorced his first wife and married my mother. Due to the fighting and instability of the marriage they gave me a great gift of giving me up for adoption. My Mother is alive, but she has so much guilt I didn't want to get too involved. Any information would be very helpful for me to know where both of them come from and thus where I do. Was told I'm welsh/norweigen(sp) I did some basic search and it seemed more likey with the locations of Blantons settling that we hailed from Scotland and or the Wales.

Comments:
Alexander's daughter Macie Almanda Blanton (Truesdale) is my Grandmother. My family comes from Kershaw County S.C. The info I have is that Alexander MacAskill Blanton is a decendant of Angus MacAskill the giant. I'm having a much harder time tracing my grandmothers side of the family than the Truesdale side.

I have just recently found my biological roots. I know that my father's middle name was Blanton, which was passed on to my brother and myself - leading me to believe it is a family name being passed down. My father lived in Pennsylvania and had a brother named James Pennington. If anyone has any info on this family tree, I would be greatful. Thanks

Comments:
I am looking for any information on her. I don't know who her parents were are anything but I've kind of pieced things together. My cousin has done very in depth research on the Hardin side plus DNA. We started out from Rutherford Co,NC the Hardins and the Blanton came togethermy ggrandmother Frances (Kitty) Blanton married Silas Hardin around 1872 around Ponotoc Mississippi if anyone has any information please let me know. I know he was born in Alabama and I think the Blantons followed them through the same path They had Four children, Linnie, Ruebin,Carrie and Samuel Taylor Hardin my grandfather who passed away in 1957 I would love to have some information on Kitty as my father referred to her. In some of your information on the web site I saw where there was a Benj Burton in Pontotac, I'm wondering if there is a connection. Would someone please help me?
Thank you,

Comments:
I could probably go further than Matthew, but not much is known about my Blanton heritage. I am 18 and live in PA but most of my family whom im very close to lives in Kentucky. They lived in a small farm in Lincoln County (Crab Orchard) Kentucky... My great grandparents were William J. Blanton and Mary E. Blanton, and my great great grandparents were Mary Alabam and Mattison (Matthew Blanton). I have a federal census from 1920 in Lincoln County and pictures of gravestones, let me know if anyone is familiar with this. I am the only one wanting to go further into this unknown history...email me if you have info. This site is very very wonderful, keep up the good work.
