Thanks her mother's maiden name was Bessie Mull from Piedmont S.C,  she was also a Cousin on my Parker /Cope line I'm working on , I believe they came out of Canada, Jackson Co, N.C, or may be from Piedmont S.C,   If you find anything on Bessie Mull Blackston and she had two sisters Gracy and Macy Mull, one of these Lady's married an Owen , all lived in Piedmont S.C , one of these twins didn't never marrie, They was also a David Mull of Piedmont, S.C , They connection to the Mull/Owen/Spearman /Blackston /Blackstone and Parker family seems to be all related to me anything about these families the information will help with my WikiTree  Thank's for your help  !!

Hiram /Hyrum Blackstone 1800-1850 disappeared and Lucinda Breazeale and Robert Scott was Elizabeth Marzeila Breazeale 1841 1913 parents but do not understand,  who or nothing about Why Elizabeth Marzeila Breazeale 1841 1913 didn't carry the Scott name, this section of my family tree is very important to me.  being I'm Blackstone and don't know nothing about my Great Great Grandparents that my name came from.
