I saw on the Martin Co. marriage records 1872-1884 that Reubin C. Bland marrried Julia Coburn Jan. 7,1874. I don't know if that is the same person that you are looking for or not. I am looking for information on Blands from Martin Co. also.

I'm trying to find a Reuben Gurganus and a Frances Bland. They were married probably between 1835 and 1845. Among their Children is a Frances who I find in New Bern just after the Civil War and Married to John Fleming- they move to NYC about 1873. Evidence has lead me to Martin Co and more precisely Williamston. Any clues or suggestions welcomed. Will share info- thanks- Jim M

I have been researching the Bland family in Martin County because Reuben Bland is my grandson's great, great, great, grandfather on his daddy's side. Lynn B. Clinard has the names of his children posted at:

There are also the birth dates. This was a tremendous help to me. Let me know if you can fill in any missing pieces.

I am looking for any information on Charlie Columbus Bland; people called him "Lum" according to a distant family member. He was born 1877 and died in 1954. He married Croshie Mae Manning in Martin County sometime after 1910. I am particularly interested in the names of his parents. Thanks,

Arnet Nelson Ange and Martha Bland md. Preston Ange. (*NOTE the three Ange's listed were brothers from Jamesville, N.C.) John Bland who md.
