Charles Blackemore Fayette Co., Ohio
Posted by: Florence Cannariato (ID *****6002) Date: July 16, 2004 at 18:43:07

I need some help putting this family with ancestors. The 1870 Census for Washington Court House Post Office, Union Twp., Fayette County, Ohio shows as follows:
Charles Blackemore age 39, born Ohio, farmer
Sarah, age 36 born Illinois
Phebe, age 18,, born Ohio
Joseph, age 16
Davison, age 13
Catherine, age 10
Farrel, age 8
Almedia, age 6
Matilda, age 4
and Violet, age 1

OK... now I have a Charles Blackmore born 1786 in Beaver County, Pa. His father was Nathaniel and his mother was Violet Anderson. This Charles married Rebecca Ferrell, whose parents were James and Eleanor Swearingen Ferrell, also of Beaver County. Charles and Rebecca Ferrell Blackmore moved to Washington Court House, Fayette County, Ohio in 1820 (Biography of their son Nathaniel from History of Fayette County, Ohio, page 895.) Here are their children:

Nathaniel, born 1806, m. Nancy Boggs, m. Mary Ann Crips.(This man had a son named Charles Blackmore)
James Blackmore
Thomas Blackmore
John Blackmore
Joseph Blackmore (Married Betsy Ann)
Charles Blackmore (married Mary)
Violette Blackmore (Was living with her parents in 1860 Census)age 40 then.
Catherine Blackmore
Eleanor Blackmore
Sarah Blackmore (married George Carr)
Elizabeth Blackmore.

Now, it seems a certainty that the Charles Blackmore first mentioned in my query has to be a descendant of the the Charles Blackmore who married Rebecca Ferrell. They even have a son named Farrel Blackmore, born in 1862, age 8 in the 1870 Census However, there is/are some generations between the two Charles Blackmores and their families. Can anyone fill in the missing family or families?
