Capt. John Blakeney family Bible and other missing documents
Posted by: John Hester (ID *****6721) Date: February 11, 2009 at 06:43:56

Hello,
I was wondering if anyone out there has any info regarding items that once belonged to the Blakeney family.

Apparently, Capt. John Blakeney had kept a family Bible listing the birth dates of his children. John Blakeney, Jr. still had this in his posession when replying to a question in his 1836 pension application. Does anyone have any clue if it may possibly still exist?

There were other items that were still in existence in the early 20th century. James Blakeney kept his own family Bible, which John Oscar Blakeney transcribed in the early 1920's. There were also deeds (mentioned in the 1920 book "Burch Family" by W. Burnette Burch) apparently written by Capt. John on Aug. 8, 1832 giving land to sons John Jr. and Hugh. John Oscar Blakeney mentions one of these deeds in his 1928 book.

It would be interesting to know whether or not any of these still exist. Does anyone have any idea?

Thanks,
John
