Hi Lisa,

I am hoping that maybe you can help me. I am trying to find into which Blackston(e) family mine fits.

My Great Grandfather, Dekalb James, married Rachel Blackston. They are buried about 5 miles up the road at Mt. Lebonon Baptist Church. I have a incomplete listing of the Blackston(e)'s and James that are buried up there. They are pretty much the main families.

Anyway, I have found that Rachel, b. abt 1870, has brothers named Ransom,b. May 24 1890, Tom(?), George Washington Aug 24, 1885, Hattie March 15, 1893, and James Jr. May 17, 1874. There may be more. Their father's name is James M. (Madison?) Blackston and he married to Martha Jane Hays Dec 4, 1869 in Glascock Co., GA.

I cannot find where James fits into the families. HELP!
