I don’t know how can I find his records maybe at his church in Pendelton?
I looked at what I could I would say they married 1830 because they didn’t have children on 1830 census they was only 15-19 that’s why I say he was born 1812 now on the 1840 census his wife is in a different age range 30-39 and he is 20-29 I believe John Hiram Blackstone 1812 and wife Mary was about 1810 you know how these census is they aren’t always correct ages listed now first child I have was Thomas born 1833 then two daughters then my John Hiram Blackstone 1838-1913
There’s nothing to suggest a Native American connection for Hiram.  He and his wife and family are all listed as white on the 1830 and 1840 censuses.  The Cherokee and other natives were pushed out of South Carolina before the Revolutionary War.   Hiram probably doesn’t appear earlier because he wasn’t old enough or was not living on his own.  He may have been living with his mother and a stepfather so no Blackstone on the 1820 census.  I would look for court records.  I’m always amazed at how much time people spent in court - they always seem to be complaining about neighbors, or their animals, or land boundaries, or serving on juries and the like.
If the church still exists, I’d ask then if they have records.
Ok they was a possibility that a lady named Judith Blackstone living close to him and a Mary on one census and then a Thomas Blackstone that was in the War of 1812-15 so his parents maybe this Thomas Blackstone and Judith Blackstone but then that is another dead end Thomas is on the 1810 census Pendelton District and Mary I believe was on 1820 census and then 1840 census has Judith Blackstone and Judith is also the name of a Sister to John Hiram Blackstone 1838-1913 so they may have named her after a grandmother, I know I’m rambling on about this family but all these are hints  / notes, with this line everything we add helps, when I ever make it to the library I hope I can sign on to my wikitree account and look my notes over.  Thanks for helping on my family everything is like a blessing finding out the correct answers to things I assume about the family is a step closer to things I need to research
I don’t see anything about Perkins Baptist Church in Pendelton but they are a Baptist organization but I can’t fugue out how to research it on line

Here is the 1840 census with Judith Blackston that could be the mother of the John Hiram Blackstone born 1812

Name: Judith Blackston
Home in 1840 (City, County, State): Pickens District, Pickens, South Carolina
Free White Persons - Males - 15 thru 19: 1
Free White Persons - Females - 15 thru 19: 1
Free White Persons - Females - 60 thru 69: 1
Free White Persons - Under 20: 2
Total Free White Persons: 3
Total All Persons - Free White, Free Colored, Slaves: 3
 
He was already on his own but she would be of age and he named a daughter Judith.

And here is that Thomas Blackstone that could be the father of John Hiram Blackstone 1812-18

John Hiram Blackstone 1812-1850 named his first son Thomas Blackstone he was born 1833 so this John Hiram Blackstone 1812-1850 may have named a son and a daughter after his parents, That is if this above listing Thomas Blackstone born going by census abt. 1771? was in the War 1812 and Judith born between 1771/1780 is his parents..

if all this is true that still doesn’t tell me who these Blackstone men’s wife’s (my grandmothers) maiden names was or who Thomas Blackstone’s (1771-1814?) died before 1820 in war assumed parents was

Yes I’m sure this is my line, Mary Blackstone on this record was my Great Great Great Grandmother she became the head of house 1850 her husband J.H.Blackstone, John H. Blackstone or John Hiram Blackstone must have died before 1850 they had a son named John Hiram Blackstone 1838-1913 this is my line but I can’t find Mary Blackstone’s maiden name or her husband John Hiram Blackstone’s Parents, I’m guessing here on wikitree.

Thanks for helping

Still trying to fugue these Blackstone’s out on the 1810 census it says son under ten I’m looking for Thomas Blackstone that would have had more then one son from Information that has been said for many years is that Richard Blackstone born 1794/1800 and John Hiram Blackstone (1805/1808 that was on the 1830/40 census living close to one another in Pickens County is brothers and that on one of these census Judith Blackstone age about 60 is the mother of these boys and the only male Blackstone in the area was a Thomas Blackstone in the 1810 census Pendleton District or Pickens County District
