W. (William?) Blankenship, wife Elizabeth 'Lizzie' Blankenship, children- Rosa Lee, Andrew Jackson, John Henry, Charley (Charlie, Chas) William Balnkenship. This family lived in the Choctaw Nation in the 1880's-1890's. It is said they had land in the Kiamichi Maountains. I am desperate and any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you much, Sarah

I am in the direct line of Reuben Blankenship. I have 2 third cousins that have already proved their lineage. Have you had in success proving yours?

I don't have Reuben in my information, but the William Blankenship mentioned is my 1st cousin 4 times removed. In other words, his father Lewis Blankenship is a brother to my ggg-gf Gilbert Blankenship. That is if we're talking about the same William. I only have one child listed for William which is Lee.

Do you have parents Reuben?

To begin with I might need to tell you that I am from a double line of Blankenship. This began with my 4th Great Grandparents John Buck Blankenship and Millie Thompson (1800-1870).

My Great Grandfather William Joseph Blankenship(3 Feb 1847- 27 Aug 1929)m: Martha Jane Coleman

My 2nd GG James Thomas Blankenship(1828-1893)m: Martha Ann Epperson

3rd GG John Buck Blankenship (1793-8Oct 1857)m: Millie Thompson

4th GG Reuben Blankenship (1765-1850): I have his papers from when he was in the American Revolution, thus anyone able to prove their linage to him can become a member of the DAR Daughters of the American Revolution. m: Elizabeth Wilkinson

Reuben's parents were: Hudson Blankenship(1729-1814) and Edith Wilkinson(1733-1826)(and yes his mother's maiden name is the same as his wife's maiden name. I have not gotten to their lineage yet to know how and if they are related)

On my other line of Blankenships: My 3rd GG mother Anna Elizabeth Blankenship (18 Dec 1817-27 June 1893, and thus her parents were also John Buck Blankenship and Millie Thompson.

My grandmother Eva Lena Blackmon Snell is the daughter to William Joseph and Martha Jane

And Hudson's parents are John Blankenship and Elizabeth Hudson. John's parents are Ralph Blankenship and Martha?
I'm descended from Hudson's younger brother Isham. Isham was married to Edith's sister Sarah. Their parents were John Wilkinson and Jane. I have all this information online if you would like to look at it. 14 generations of about 38 Blankenship families.
