[Hello David and Blackwell email list, March 10, 1997]
Joseph Blackwell & Sara Chandler Banks are 6th generation ancestors of mine.
I don't have much information, but Joseph was born ?1742, Beaverdam district, Granville County, North Carolina. Served during Revolutionary War with Granville Militia. His brother-in-law Ralph Banks was Captain in this same militia. (Vol 22 page 174 State Records of North Carolina by Walter Clark). Joseph is first mentioned in Georgia in 1785 (tax digest of Wilkes County). His will was probated Sept 1806 in Elbert County, Georgia. He had six children.
He married Sarah Chandler Banks (Ralph Banks' sister) April 2, 1772. She was born June 4, 1748 and died after 1827 in ?Georgia.
I am interested in locating information on Joseph Blackwell's ancestors and those of Mathias Williamson (who may be from England). I have a browser.
Best wishes, Please email should you have any information.

Thank you for the 2 files. Don't know if they are mine but, EDWARD b.1857 son of Nicholas Blackwell could very well be my Edward............my Anna Elizabeth was born in 1887, so the time frame is right<:) The fact that Nicholas was born in NC and moved to AL could mean that Edward returned to NC.........I am trying to locate a 1st cousin somewhere in SC that has Anna Elizabeth's family Bible and her old records. in the meantime don't forget that she had at least one brother named Freeman Blackwell<:).
Hope you have better luck with your Millie Blackwell, and I really appreciate you keeping a eye out for all my Blackwells. I will keep you posted as I learn anythin
Ken......PS. At least this is the First Edward I have seen in any records other than Anna Elizabeth's death certificate. Thanks.
Hold the press<:) was about to send this when there was another letter from you on Freeman Blackwell.........I'm a little confused....so what else is new<:)<:).......where you say "He used his mothers surname" and she was Mary Ann Blackwell??? did you mean He "listed" his mothers surname??. Looks like you are batting a hundred<:) twice now you have come up with two names "Edward & Freeman" that here to fore I was unable to find. Thank you and of course all this helps. if only I could get off my duff and locate that cousin in SC to get her Bible and possibably start tieing this all togeather. Looks like this just may tie in when I do.
