Dear David, May 20, 1996, (updated Jan. 4, 1997 via Blackwell email list.)
Greetings from Central Texas!
I am including information about my Blackwell line and would be pleased if you would include it with the other American Blackwells on the the family page.

1 C.B. BLACKWELL b: 1840 d: July 27, 1897 in Pelion, Lexington Co., SC; +Sarah MARTIN b: 1845 d: June 16, 1900 in Pelion, Lexington Co., SC.

Most of the information about C. B. Blackwell and his wife Sarah Martin came from the Bible of Dock D. Blackwell and his wife Arrie, and was passed to me from the notes of Charles Huckabee of Columbia, SC. He told me that Dock and Arrie had no children, and the whereabouts of the Bible is unknown.

According to the notes, C. B. met Sarah Martin (a 100% Kusso-Natchez Indian) while on a fishing trip on the Edisto River. [The Kusso-Natchez, also known as the Edisto tribe, continue to live in SC.]

Benjamin S. Blackwell is my maternal grandfather.

Thanks so much. I look forward to hearing from you.

Hello Blackwell email list - - July 20, 1997
I would like to know if this Dock Blackwell is also known as William F. Blackwell. William F. was married to Eliza Ann Fry and he was the son of George Washinghton and Nancy Bushyhead Blackwell and the nephew of Joseph and Esther Blythe Blackwell. ```any information you have on this, I would greatly appreciate you sending me.
Thank you Ellen English.

I don't Believe so.... Finally some one knows my Blackwells!!!!!

I was courious and looked for Eliza Ann Fry and found this:

If memory serves me, George Washington Blackwell also had several businesses in Hickory Co. MO. I have heard stories about him that was passed down from family to family.... hope we can connect our Blackwells. ------------------------------------------

Joseph Blackwell came from TN. to Hickory Co. MO., before it was a county, he was one of the first white settlers in this area, it was probably around 1827.. I have some information on these Blackwells, but not as much as I need.... My maternal grandmother's name was Vada Elsie Blackwell, her dad was James S. Blackwell, and her mother was Sara Elizabeth Bartshe. If we are talking about the same blackwells I would like to exchange information with you.. below is the family you talked about in this posting I do believe!!!! If I am not mistaken George Washinton Blackwell was my g grandfathers uncle...

Let me know if any of this looks familar, and good luck!!

(note : when replying to queries you should repeat this web address (URL) so they know where you found their query.)

So do any of our readers know who C.B. Blackwell is?
The name Dock Blackwell  is odd but sound familiar, I'll (or someone) will have to check the
old Blackwell Researcher and Blackwell Newletters when we have time, DCB.
