JAMES Marion Blakeney was a wealthy business man who owned much land and timber, owned a general merchandise store, his son Dan end up with most of the land ,was also wealthy, it is said that when Dan was old that he went blind was tricked into signing it over to a relative and they were also rich, but lost it all in the end. Barney Blakeney owned a large farm on the Leaf River, had cattle and grew crops, owned store,and stockyard. Alonzo and Albert also were farmers with property. I have seen things posted about how hard the Blakeney's had it, and some did have it hard but there are many that were wealthy and lived well.
