New article on Capt. John Blakeney's origins

Hi everyone,
In an attempt to pinpoint the sources of family legend which gives the birthplace of Capt. John Blakeney (1732-1832) as Mt. Blakeney in County Limerick, Ireland, I have written an article to build a case for Mt. Blakeney, using circumstantial evidence. It is based on previously known sources, including John Oscar Blakeney's book, as well as additional sources I have been able to find using Google Books.

Since we have no contemporary records from Capt. John's time which answer the question, I have tried to find out if this information originally came from people who may have known Capt. John personally.

To read the article, go to http://www.jfhester.com/blakeney/

Click on the article, "Reading Between the Lines: Capt. John Blakeney and the Case for Limerick".

Feedback is welcome!

Thanks,
John
