Illinois Blakeny Ancestors

Help! I have been trying with very little success to find out who my gggrandfather's parents were. His name was William A. Blakeny b. 25 March 1843 and died in Wabash Co. Illinois on 28 Sept. 1915. Married Mary Ann Morgan in Wabash County on 31 July 1864. One census record states that he was born in TN, but I am not sure I believe that. Based on cemetery records and other research I have done, I am thinking that he had brothers named Levi, George W., Thomas J, Alvin (Jr.?) and Tobias, and he might have had a sister named Ann. I know Tobias was born in Wabash County in 1852 moved to Vermillion Co. IL after marrying. But I cannot seem to tie any of them together with any certainty. Any help anyone could provide would be appreciated!
