What was your great-grandfathers name? Was it Hiram B, Willis Willie, or James Henry (b. 1825). How was Reuben related to you? R Ashley Blagrave is my look alike cousin's (Dale Blagrave's) father and Reuben's grandson. Did your grandfather have a brother named Willis Willie and one named James Henry. Or was Rueben your gandfather's brother? My grandfather was a cousin to Rueben, and my grandfather's name was Elbert Blagrave. He had a double-first cousin named Leonard (mothers were Marie Annie and Jennie Harrison , sisters who married the Blagrave brothers, James Henry and Willis Willie). Leonard had a brother named Ruble, and I believe one name Tom, as well. There were two or three Toms in the Blagrave family it seems, around the same time. One of these was the Tom Blagrave (my great-grandfathers younger brother) and the other was either Rueben's brother or Leonard's (I think this was Oscar B, nicknamed Tom)as I understand it from Ashley Blagrave.

I beieve most of this is correct. I am James E Blagrave II, Elbert Blagrave's eldest grandson; brother to Veta Jean Blagrave (killed by lukemia age 14) Frances Cecilia Blagrave-Chandler, William Henry Blagrave, and John Christopher Blagrave. We are the children of James Elbert Blagrave. We grew up outside of Madisonville in Normangee, Texas and went to school in North Zulch, Texas.

Thanks, Jimm
