Nancy. finding the parents of my John Hiram Blackstone Sr est1812-1849 is so important. my wife and I are having a new baby boy in December we going to name him Hiram Gabriel Blackstone, (had to share), but if John B Blackstone born 1779 is his father. and then John Pope Blackstone is his father then I need to build some proof, maybe the 1810 and 1820 census for John B Blackstone born 1779 would show proof of my John Hiram Blackstone being in his home, but then I would need proof John B Blackstone is the son of John Pope Blackstone now on John B Blackstone born 1779 could he have been married twice and had two sets of children the marriage record he has with Mary was in the year 1817 maybe second marriage?
I'm so sorry if I'm confusing you with all these John Blackstone's but I'm like you I believe this is my set, I just would like wikitree, ancestry and everyone would all agree on what we see. I don't believe anyone has ever said that this wasn't correct it's just that 1817 marriage date for John B Blackstone and John Hiram Blackstone being born 1812 just don't add up.
Thanks again for helping, I can't wait to see them papers on the other Blackstone/Blakiston's
