- 9 Jul 1724 Martha got 250 acres on the S side of the James River beginning Henry Marshall's lines to east side of the main road
- Ralph Blankenship came to the colony of Virginia as an indentured servant in 1686 or 1687 and settled in Henrico County. On 1 April 1690 Mr. Richard Kennon of Henrico County came into court and made application for a patent of 8000 acres for importing 90 people and 70 Negroes. Kennon named as headrights the following individuals . .(Henrico Co. Record Book 2 [1678-1693], page 326).
- Ralph Blankinship deposed on 2 April 1695 that he was about thirty-three years of age.
- Martha married second Edward Stanley by 5 Oct 1725 he d. by 5 Jun 1727
- Ralph, John and James are named in Stanley's will pg 26 4 Jul 1726 to receive 3 plantations at Coldwater Run 230 acres
- He did not leave a will. Inventory page 258. Hers is page 125
- Not in the 1705 rent rolls

Children of Ralph1 and Edith
- Thomas G
- Nancy m. John Hix
- Priscilla m. Thomas Yates
- Edith married a second time to Gregory Grant. His will lists his children as: William, Thomas, Nancy, Priscilla Yates, Edith.
- Ralph's will Chesterfield Co VA book 1 page 285 20 Oct 1758 inventory page 313 14 Apr 1759 lists wife Edith and sons Gid, Womack, and Ralph. It also lists a Francis with no relationship but this is probably his brother not a son. Francis noncupative will dated 20 Oct 1758 and witnessed 7 Apr 1759 is on the same page and gives his items to Womack son of Ralph.
- There is some confusion with the names. Ralph's will refers to Gid and the guardianship record Gideon. Walter Nunnally's will refers to daughter Eve Grant and grandson Gad. Edith married second Gregory Grant will Chesterfield Co VA book 3 page 313 she is referred to her as Edith as does Ralph's will. From this point forward all references show Gad and I do not see Gideon listed again.
- Who is the Womack Blankenship listed in the noncupative will 7 Apr 1759? Ephraim Blankenship the next of kin.

Children of Gad and Sarah

- John N b. ca 1784 d. 1834 Robertson Co TN m. Elizabeth Tapscott
- Gad b. ca 1786 d. 1847 Robertson Co TN m. Delilah b. 1780-90 d. 1853
- son b. 1820-1825
- Mary b. 10 Apr 1807 VA d. 13 Aug 1864 Robertson Co TN m. Thomas W Harris b. 15 May 1805 TN d. 10 Oct 1860 (C: Rosanna, James b. 1832, Delilah b. 1834, Gad b. 1836, Thomas b. 1837, Burgess b. 1839, Mary b. 1842, Marvel b. 1844, Richard b. 1846, Alexander (Ank) b. 1849, Georgia Ann)).
- The name Gad is one of the sons of Jacob and brother to Joseph from the book of Exodus. This makes Gad the name of one of the 12 tribes of Israel
- I have found no proof that Sarah was the daughter of John since most of the records of Buckingham burned but it is extremely likely. Gad Blankenship's entry in the land tax records indicate that he was responsible for the land which was John Nunalley's. It is this land that Gad gave to his sons. John started assigning his lands gradually to his sons in 1794 with the bulk of it being spit up in 1799 when Gad received his. I also suspect that John N stands for John Nunnally Blankenship. John almost always used the N even though there were no other John Blankenships in the place that he lived (at least in any records I found) but the name is not spelled out.
- Was Gad's wife Delilah a Hudgens? She is mentioned as a sister in the will of Mary Hudgins 1 Feb 1835 but not sure if Mary Hudgins is a spinster or this is a married name. The Hudgens do appear in Buckingham county from 1787 through at least 1806 (where Gad would have married by 1806) so that makes it at least possible. Harris's are there as well.
Chesterfield Co VA
- Chesterfield Co VA book 3 page 168 5 Aug 1768 Womack and Gideon are listed as orphans with Walter Nunnally their guardian
- Gad bought land 4 Jul 1777 from William Smith 8-214
- 1783 census with 6 whites
- May 1784 Gad listed in will of his grandfather Walter Nunnellee. This is very important as there is a related case in Chesterfield Chancery Court (file 1819-11) which spells out the relationships and identifies the Gad Blankenship of Buckingham as the grandson of Walter Nunalley. It indicates Gad did leave a will filed in July 1802 (executor Thomas Ballow) but this was burned along with the land records of Buckingham County. The case involved true ownership of some slaves left in both Walter's will and Gad's step-father Gregory Grant's will.
- Feb 1786 witness in will of John Atkins
- 1790 census - 6 people
- plat book 4 Oct 1797 Gad's land adjoins Richard Bondurant, ? Maxey, Elijah Howle
- plat book 19 May 1798 Gad's land adjoined John Maxey, Nathl Burton, Edward Maxey, Charles May, Richard Bondurant, Elijah Howle on Goodwin's road
- Land tax - 1789 John Nunnalley appears with 300 A followed in 1791 with an additional 1666. In 1794 some of this is in the hands of Arthur, Josiah, and eventually Barnett. In 1799 400 A are in the hands of Gad Blankenship (specifies for John N). In 1801-7 Gad's 400 A does not mention John N. 1808 missing, Between 1809 the 400 A is divided into plots for Gad est., Elijah, and John N of 133 1/3 A each. In 1818 we see Ezekiel with 35 A for the first time and it is in a different area of the county. 1819 Elijah disappears, 1820 missing, 1821-2 John N, Gad est, Ezekiel 55, 150 acres Hatchers from John Bronson, 1823 John N 133 1/3, Ezekiel, Burton now shows Gad est, 1824-5 missing, 1826 Ezekiel 150 acres at Hatchers
- Personal Property Tax - Gad first appears in 1791, 1796-1800: Gad & Elijah B, 1800: Gad, 1802-4: Elijah, John N, and Gad est, 1805-6: Elijah, Sarah, Gad, John N, 1807: John, 1809: John N, Gad est, 1810: Sarah, John N , 1811: Gad est, John N, 1812: Sarah, John N, 1813 -5: Gad est, John N, 1816: missing, 1817: Gad est, John N, Ezekiel, 1818: Elijah, Ezekiel, Gad est, John N, 1819: Gad est, Ezekiel, Thomas, 1820: John N, Gad est, Ezekiel, Thomas, 1821: John N, Gad est, Ezekiel, Elijah, 1822: Elijah, Ezekiel, John N, 1823: Ezekiel, Elijah, Elisha (other part of county), 1825 Ezekiel, Elijah, William, 1826 Elijah, Thomas, Ezekiel.

He also was born when Gad was very young. Also Gad Sr's land is divided 3 ways. One goes to John N, one to Elijah, and one to Gad est which is sold by Gad Jr (I'm adding the Sr & Jr to avoid confusion but the terms do not appear in records) in 1822 while in Robertson to Burton and we see Gad est disappear after the Burton reference to it in 1823. By 1824 we also see all references to John N disappear as he moves to TN where he first appears in 1823. Note in 1805-6 it lists both Sarah and Gad which is probably Gad Jr. as in other references we see either Sarah or Gad est. An Ezekiel had a land deal Chesterfield 1807 17-462

- William b. Jul-Aug 1823 - last year of guardianship 1844 is consitant with hist birth date (guardianship reaffirmed in court in Oct 1842)
- I am still trying to verify that William H is the William listed as a minor son of John N and not a a son of Gad who had a possible son around the same age whose name I have not identified. That would mean they both named sons William at almost identical agers. The reasons I think William H is John N's son and not Gads is William H named his first son Robert which is his brother's name if John N is his father. Also an Elizabeth Blankenship was a member of a Free Will Babtist church in 1826 with men who would latter on be connected to William H as an afult and his becoming a Free Will Batist minister. There is also a strong connection between William H Blankenship the adult and the people connected to the people mentioned in the processing of John N Blankenships's estate. Another clue is William H lives 2 households from John Forbes in 1860 who was the guardian of the William son of John N. Based on all this I think William H is the son of John N and not Gad.
- John N's census would indicate that William H is too young for the sons listed in the 1830 census but the other dates including John N are wrong too in this census. Its almost like they were one column off so the 1830 census is not compelling. William had a guardian until 1844 the same age William H became 21. Gad does have a son the correct age in 1830 and 1840 so he is still possible but he has an older son in 1830 which does not show in 1820. It could also be that William H was living with Gad but still be the son of John N. Neither left wills. John N sold his land before his death but Gad's land was not sold and I have not been able to trace when and who sold it.
- I think Andrew J and John C are also sons of John N and not Gad but nothing proven. See detail on them below.

- The marriage date came from a letter written by Juanita Pauline Wright and she refers to a bible record.
- William was a minister of the Bethlehem Free Will Baptist Church north of Ashland City. .It was founded in 1847 by Elder W. L. Gower (in those days, they were apt to use Elder where we use Reverend.). Services originally were held every 3 months in homes with the frequency of service increasing over time. The original church was built around 1857 and is now in private hands on Lockertsville Rd. The center part is the original church with other parts added on over time William H. Blankenship appears several times in the list, as follows:
- Elders W. L. Gower, William Blankenship 1855-56
- Elder William Blankenship 1856-57
- Elder A. Rose 1857-58
- Elder William Blankenship 1853-60
- Elders William Blankenship, W. L. Gower 1860-61
- Elders W. L. Gower, William Blankenship 1861-62
- Elder William Blankenship 1862-64
- He married several people in this time period including Hudgens and Harris families starting with the first county record marriages in 1857 through Mar 1862
- Good Springs Free Baptist Church was also founded by W. L. Gower and eventually Alex Rose was also a paster. This should be checked out to see if there is any connection to William B.
- William H was a road overseer from Springfield to Sycamore Mills 185?
- Among the first church organizations of Cheatham was one of the Free-Will Baptists, established on Blue Spring Branch, near Sycamore Mills, by Rev. Robert Heaton. In Robert Heaton's journal, dated Jan 10, 1826, the name of Elizabeth Blankinship is listed among the members of the church at Marrowbone as well as W. L. Gower. I assume this is William's mother Elizabeth. And about the same time Vicks old meeting-house was erected in the Boston Hills, about four miles northeast of what is now Ashland City and Lowe's meeting-house was built about three miles north of Sycamore Mills. In 1835 Braxton Lee conveyed two acres of land, where this old log church still stands, to the following trustees: Gideon H. Lowe, Matthew Harris, Jonas Manafee, Thomas W. Shearon and himself, as a trustee. A part of this land has been and continues to be used as a public cemetery.
- I have been unsuccessful at tracing Fanny's marriage, and where the eldest son moved. Did he move to Nebraska?
- Gilbert is listed in the Marion Monitor 22 Feb 1876 as guardian of John Chamness's two children.
- A family story says he left TN during the Civil War because he was against slavery and was told by a neighbor that someone was coming to kill him that night. They fled. They stopped at one set of grandparents when they left. While they were sitting on the hill they could feel the cannon firing.
- W. H. signed a bond for A Rose along with Elizabeth S. Cochran (wife of John Cochran) in 1 Aug 1859 Cheatham Co TN. Is A. Rose Alexander Rose b. 1801? He also bought several items during the estate sale in 1861.
- William's church in IL was Free Baptist Church at Freewill. He was named as pastor of a Free Will Baptist Church in his obituary when died in Cottage Home. This predates the church built by his son-in-law T.O. McMinn.
- Mahala's parents are Thomas and Rhoda
- Bascum suffered from Epilepsy
- One of the brothers left the area - was this the eldest?
- Luanna and Georgeanne were close - Luanna told the story of Georgeanne being called to testify at church meeting and her answer was “N0 - I feel cold tonight.” (They had young men waiting to take them for a buggy ride). Luanna was quite elegant and her son was a milliner and clothes designer from St. Louis.
- Fanny married in 1925-27 a third time and was living in Marion when she married. She said she had taken care of Georgeanne's children when she died and John B. got on a stump and started preaching. She knew he would become a preacher.
- I assume that WJR is the the eldest son although one census has the initials reversed. The marriage records are under WJR.

- There anre many trees that make no sense with this family. They have a Samuel, Mary, Frnacus, and Susannah as younger children of William but born in Fauquier, VA yet the earlier children were born in Warren County NC and William died in Warren County. I see no evidence he moved from Warren County to to Fauquier, VA and then back again. I think 2 different William Durham have been mixed together. The Samuel I have here as his son was born on NC and married there and shows up in census there and then smoothly shows up in census in TN in 1850 with wife Sally.along side his daughter's family and other children. There was also a Samuel Durham in Green Co KY marrying a Sally Counch but this was a different Samuel as evidenced by census records showing both recorded in the same census but in totally different states. The one in KY is there long after this Samuel had moved to TN. So t.There are multiple Durham families and they are getting mixed up.

He brought with him his second wife, Susannah, and their two young daughters, plus the adult children from his first wife, Phoebe, and their families. His son Edward Hudgens arranged the purchase of a 1,000 acre land grant from John Nichols, and James, Sr. purchased 500 acres of that grant. He sold a 100 acre plot to Thomas John Miles, husband of his daughter Elizabeth Hudgens, and other parcels were sold to his other sons who had accompanied him. The deeds are recorded in the Robertson County courthouse in Springfield, TN.

We do not know where James Sr. or James Jr. are buried although I have been shown an area on a farm outside Ashland City where I was told there were some old, unmarked Hudgens graves.

- There was a book written by Sue Puckett Payton in 1955 that states that John Puckett may have come from Dorset, England. The book states that a search of English records in London and the County of Dorset as well as church records had been searched and the Puckett family did come from England. According to the research done by Sue, the Pucketts are mentioned in detail in the files of the Society of Genealogists, Chaucer House, Mallet Place, WC London, and in the Dorset records preserved on the Hose of lords and designated THE PROTESTATION RETURNS 1641-42.
