Hi. I didn't check the site for a while. Asa Blankenship/Blankinship and Amanda S. Jent were the parents of my maternal great-grandmother Mary Etta "Etta" Blankenship who married ROBERT Washington Hale.
Robert and Mary Etta were the parents of my grandfather Sammie (not Samuel) Asa Hale.
Asa Blankenship/Blankinship's parents were John Blankenship and Sarah 'Sally' Roark. John Blankenship goes back to Barnette Blankenship/Barsheba Meador to Isham Blankenship/Sarah WIlkinson.
If you have any more info re: Hale, Blankenship, Roark, Gent.
