Donnie Alan Blackstone was born in Greenville, Greenville County, South Carolina, United States of America (history of Greenville, Sc : [1]) at the Old Greenville General Hospital the third child and only Son of Donnie Joe Blackstone of Grove Station, Greenville, SC and Janet Maxine Spearman Blackstone of Brushy Creek, Piedmont, Anderson, SC.. Donnie was raised in The Judson Mill Community [2]. on West Wilburn and Valley Street, I'm dedicated to my work here on wikitree just as I was for years being a professional automobile technician & restorer of vintage automobiles, I've had the opportunity to work on all kinds of automobile's, also a WWII Jeep that I restored that was in the VFW Museum in Greenville County, South Carolina many in Car & Truck shows, restored pedal cars one of my favorite was a 1962 Buck Reveara, I started working on Cars as a child in my friends fathers garage in Judson, Greenville, SC, I got my first car after my uncle passed away in 1986 it was his 1966 Chrysler Newport. many other cars came and went over the years, started working at Lawton Lumber yard that year. but landed a job with Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet in 1992 in the body shop after working as a clean up boy on freshly painted cars they ask did I want to work on cars I wanted to paint! Kevin Whitaker and GM Corporation sent me to Atlanta School of Paint to get my certification. In 1995 I went to work on dragcars this is when I learned to cut and buff automobiles this makes a car flawless, 1998 I went to work doing plumbing with my uncle Piedmont Rooter after a year, I went to work at Hartness International that's when I took a class in Blue print drawing and readying, I left their went to work at Charlie's Body Shop in Pelzer, SC. I built my shop at home. after this I went back to GMC another dealership called Arnett Moters they was located in Anderson, SC. I left GMA went back to Charlie's Body Shop my dad died around this time this was in 2005, I opened my Body Shop full-time 2005. Well between 2005 and 2012, (I was in my own world). I worked in my shop? during this time 2010 wasn't good, I lost my mother, I completly lost my self by this time I had been drinking over 20 years about 2012 we also lost a child, this child would have been my 5th child with my 2nd wife. I stop drinking on December 13, 2014 after finding out I had cirrhosis of the live, I tured my life over to the Lord and we made many trips to the MUSC hospital in Charleston, South Carolina as of (July 25, 2018 my liver is working but cirrhosis never goes away this date will be updated) around 2015/16 for an early Christmas gift my son in law & 2nd oldest daughter by my first wife gave me a 23andme test and I sent it in, I didn't even know what a DNA test was. Lol now 2016, I needed something in my life and God Blessed me by being invited to Wikitree by Ms.Cousins (and I thank her so much). after researching endlessly where John Hiram Blackstone Sr est. 1805sc1849? was from, and his parents names, I still haven't found this information out. 2018 has been quite a year so far we are expecting a little boy we have decided his name to be Hiram Gabriel Blackstone. we was expecting another child 2020 we had another miscarriage, Now working on my family here in South Carolina I have come across lots about natives being kin folk, At the end of the Revolutionary War, all of present-day Greenville, Anderson, Oconee, and Pickens counties was Cherokee land. my families was already here before they changed to counties or districts so if family was born on Cherokee land seems that makes them natives right? Hope to find more. I will add more later. added on January 24, 2019 Information shared says the many of the Scots Irish migrated from Pennsylvania down the Shenandoah Valley to the Carolina’s O- yea...How blessed is the man whose quiver is full? Feeling Blessed!!

Do you know anything about William Pressley Dillashaw’s parents? Chidale Blackwood, my Delachaux./Dillashaw family was In South Carolina. Jaques Francois Delachaux (1745 - 1790).

Just looking his parents maybe Peter (Delachaux) Dillashaw bef.1800 and Mary Cathy (Graham) Dillashaw (bef. 1805) It looks like they married in 1822?

Hi Donnie! It looks like you're creating some duplicate profiles this morning. Don't forget to search and connect to the existing ones. : )
posted by Karen Lowe
Whoops! It looks like this is happening in part because some earlier duplicates weren't caught. I'm proposing some merges for the Presley/Pressley family, which is quite close to my daughter.

Ok yes seems some of the family was in South Carolina then moved to North Carolina, Georgia then I believe the Mills may have been the reason some moved back to Piedmont, Greenville, area. Thanks for helping me out Laura DeSpain.

Hi Donnie,

I sent you a message a week ago to let you know about the exciting changes in the US Southern Colonies Project to ask you about your continued involvement but have no yet heard back from you. Do you still want to be in the project? If so, which team(s) would you like to be on and please can you private message me with your e-mail address so I can get you added to the project’s Google Group?

If I don’t hear from you by the same time next week I’ll assume that you’ve moved on to other things but you’d be most welcome to re-join the project at any time.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Best wishes,

Susie - US Southern Colonies Co-Leader

Shilow United Methodist Church Cemetery, Piedmont S.C Shiloh Church in Piedmont SCPosted 25 May 2013 by judicwillard


Located in back of the old Piggley Wiggley store.

Latitude N 34 42.146 x Longitude W 82 28.254


Spearman descendants, believes that Edmund Spearman and his wife, Dinah Oldham, are buried in this cemetery along with their son and daughter-in- law, David Samuel "Samuel" Spearman and his wife, Nancy Clardy. They came from Caroline County, VA. URL:

Shiloh has a long and fine history in this upstate corner of South Carolina. In a community known back then as Golden Springs, there was a general merchandise store which handled the mail delivered by pony express from Williamston Railroad Station. In this early 1800 community, the Holy Spirit directed the organization of a church. It began as Shiloh Methodist Episcopal Church in 1815. Land for the building site was donated by the late David Spearman family. He was a strong layman who gave leadership for many years. From the beginning until the present time, his descendants have been members of this church. Shiloh’s first building was of log construction, which was replaced before the Civil War by a frame building in 1860. This frame building served as sanctuary until it was replaced by the former brick building in 1938 that stood until 1995. Now in a forth sanctuary, members worship in a grand and beautiful sanctuary.

+7 more children if they are this many more I can't find them, possibly daughter

Hey Donnie,

I have no idea about Jasper or Susan Clardy or another wife. Please take it on and find information to beef them up. I have abandoned them for you to take on - I think they may be related through my Hunt line via the Mauldin's?
