Tn and Ms Blackards

My 3rd great grandfather was Carrol Blackard who married Sarah Hamm in McNairy County, Tn. They later moved just accross the line to Tishomingo County, Ms. Carrol served in the war of 1812 and died in Tishomingo County while crossing a swollen creek in the 1880's in his wagon. He had a son, John Blackard who supposably died in Blytheville, Arkansas. John's son, William, was born in Tishomingo County,Ms and moved around between there and Blythville and Pemiscott County, Missouri. He died as a young man. He left my great grandmother Emma Lee Ezell from Pemiscott County, Missouri, when their son, my grandfather, Robert Lee Blackard, was a few months old. Emma died in 1919, when Robert was 18 months old. When grown he came to Tishomingo County, Ms. I was thinking a possible connection to the Job or Willoughby Blackard. Believe Carroll was born in Tennessee. His wife's pension application says that he was dark headed, eyed and skined as all our Blackards are. Do not have many connections to this family as far as cousins, etc. Does anyone have any possible connections or suggestions? Thanks for your Help. Rebecca
