Hello Stacey Blanton,
I too am interested in Blantons from Magoffin and Johnson. My Blantons are particularly difficult as the mother died young and the children were scattered. And I don't know if all the kids were from the same parents/"legitimate."
My grandpa is Harry B Blanton, was shot in 1937 by his wife's (Cora Saylor's) second cousin Grant Saylor over a poker game at Green Rock in the Oil Springs area of Johnson County.
The mother's name was Martha Blanton. Harry had 3 brothers and 1 sister, Frank Blanton, Fred Blanton, Shade Blanton and Martha Blanton. I know that Shade moved to Greenup County and worked for the railroad. I know Frank moved to Indiana and might have been raised by the Arms family after the mother (Martha Blanton) died. One of Harry's death certificates lists his dad as Sile Ratliff (my best guest from the handwriting). My grandma doesn't know much about her dad's side.
Would love to collaborate. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
