Biography

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!! † † † † † † † † † Blackstone's † “Get busy living or get busy dying.”

Hi Donnie,

It’s time for our annual Ireland Project check-in! Please respond within the next two weeks to let me know:

  • If you are happy with the team you’re on or if you’d like to make a change. It is now required that all members with an Ireland project badge work on at least one of the project’s team(s), so if you’ve not yet signed up please do so in your reply to this check-in.
  • What you think the project is doing well, and what (if any) changes you would like to see us make? Are there any teams you would like to become more active in?
  • Would you be interested in helping to work on an Ireland Project newsletter?
  • Please give us some feedback on the use of google group and discord. Do you use one or both of these? If you don’t use either of them, what is the best way for us to ensure you receive project communications? If you would like to join us on either one, Just let us know in your response and we will get you signed up.

Please respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message on WikiTree. If we don’t hear from you within two weeks, we will assume you are no longer interested in participating in the Ireland Project, and your badge will be removed. If you wish to reapply for membership later, we will be happy to have you back. Many thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely, Jen Hutton, on behalf of the Ireland Project
