Eddie if you look at John Blackstone Sr and John Blackstone Jr they are about the same age right? So I was thanking John Blackstone Sr born 1779 is John Hiram Blackstone 1812-died before 1850<< -->> note (his wife Mary Unknown Blackstone was head of house in 1850 with another John Hiram Blackstone born 1838-1913
another John B Blackstone born around 1779
And John Blackstone Jr born around 1779
If you look at 1810,1820,1830,1840 census and ages of the children wife ect. I believe we talking about three different John Blackstone's living Pickens SC and just across the line in Georgia is the other Blackstone men
On some census it list John M Blackstone also John B Blackstone then I seen John Blackstone Sr and John Blackstone Jr I believe some of the old research that has been done is all a big guess. What can I do to start over and see if I can find the problem I don't trust Find A Grave on this set now Mary Blackstone widow head of house 1850 Keowee, Pickens County is my line I may need to find death certificate's saying these children's dad was John Hiram Blackstone then find out what happened to him before 1850 then find the closest possible parents from what I understand is they lived on Little Crow Creek in Pickens County, SC do you thank he may have got sent out west with the trail of tears maybe as a Native or maybe as one that was removing them. The reason I say this is that Big Jim Blackstone had a page and had some information on line but I believe he has passed away I remember it said three Blackstone men died in this war but can't remember the year it had a father and two of his son's died then around 1877? The lnd on Little Crow Creek was sold in John Hiram Blackstone's name in a Pickens county Sheriff sale it then says that Miss Mary Blackstone died 1887 at her sons house around the Hurricane Creek area of Pickens or Anderson County now to the John Hiram Blackstone 1838-1913 is buried minutes from Hurricane Creek and I live one mile from this Hurricane Creek and I was told the land I live on was Blackstone property but the Finley family owed it for years but it was first deaded to a Blackstone from the King or Governor (land grant I guess) everybody says I need to go to the library to research this but I would like to pay then to go my self. I went the other day and meet a cousin at the White Plains Baptist Church Cemetery minutes from my home (two minutes) where John Hiram Blackstone 1838-1913 is buried he was up from Florida researching but I haven't heard back. another thing is that John Hiram Blackstone on the 1830 census with his wife was between the ages of 16-25 then looking at the 1840 census looking at it shows him most likely being born 1812 he is only going to show up on his dads census one's I guess but then this depends only if he lived next to his dad because I have seen a child on his parents census and then seen him on his own. I have also been told that the Blackstone family had a biblical dispute (religious dispute) and this information maybe why we can't find him in anyone's will these Blackstone's was Farmers I believe back to the land on Little Crow Creek it was 108 acres of land? and later Duke Energy (Duke Power) put a plant on this land I was told they may have moved John Hiram Blackstone 1812-1850' s grave if he was buried on this land or he maybe buried at the bottom of Lake Keowhee, (South Carolina needs to find my great great great granddaddy) how they lose this man. Lol I bet they don't lose anyone these days..
