In Reply to: Job BLACKARD by Margaret Blackard Clarke of 256

The family legend is that two brothers Blackard, sailed from Aberdeen, Scotland for Charleston, SC. I have found a Blackard living in NC in 1720.
For many reasons, I believe that the original name was Blaccard, they were French Huguenots and the route was France, Ireland, Scotland, SC and NC. part of the Blaccard family fled to Switzerland from France and at least one emigrated to the US in 1862.
Your Job is , I think, related to Jeremiah, not my line although undoubtably the same ancestor, and moved to Mississippi.
I had some info about this line but those papers are with another party and I do not readily have access to them.
A Mrs. Tonroy, living in Dallas, as I remember, was the family researcher. This was about 30 years ago.
