Does anyone know who the parents of Joseph Blades b.1845 d.1926 are?
Joseph Blades md. Mary Hester McCarty b.1849 d.12-20-1923 (Sorry I don't have a marriage date for them yet)

I have checked all the KY counties in the 1850 census and have not been able to locate him.
The following are the children from the marriage that I have so far from the 1880 census records.
1) Marcus "Mark" Blades b.1867
2) Thomas Blades b.1869
3) Martha Blades b.1871
4) John Roy Blades b.1873
5) Matt Blades (dau) b.1878
6) Unknown son b. May 1880

I do have access to the 1880, 1900-1920 census records here at Ancestry so I can check the areas for other children if you know the area(s) they were in.

Hi, I ran across a Joseph A Blades, living in Bracken county, Kentucky in 1910 & 1913. Appears he died in Ky around 1936. I am a volunteer entering names from old newspapers into a database.
It appears he was a noted inventor around 1913. He invented a car which started when the driver sat down & turned itself off when the driver got out of the seat. A small article about this was in a 1913 newspaper in New Mexico.
hope this helps.
Pat O.

Thanks for that interesting piece of information, Pat. I'm afraid that, in my mind, I could see all sorts of problems resulting from a car starting up when one sat in the drivers seat! Thanks again.
