Well, first of all, Elizabeth Lay is actually Elizabeth LEY, the name she was married under and written in the marriage book of Sumner County, TN.
Secondly, the senior citizens of Omaha, senior in 1960-65, insisted that John L Blackard married two sisters, the sisters Starkey. much of the Blackard genealogy that I have is based on oral history and memories.
Lastly, even the descendents of Grant Blackard believe that John L. Blackard, who served in the Civil War as a Sgt, Company H, 120th Illinois Infantry, and named his son after his commanding general, is the father of Grant Blackard.
The caution here is that unless one has a photocopy of written records or sees the original document for themselves, one may have mistakes based on misreading of initials by transcribers.
