Hi Jean,
I appreciated your email in regards to the Jacob Blank & Company furniture store in Batesville, IN. Batesville in in Ripley or Franklin County (the SE corner of the state). I have yet to connect this Blank family to mine, but I have always felt there was a connection as I believe my Blanks came to Ripley County from Germany in 1861. Unfortunately, my Blanks were painters and I don't know of any furniture makers. But then again, I know very little about my Blank side of the family. Your query just gives me the urge to do more investigation. Jacob Blank's will was listed on the Ripley County Website (USGENWEB) but I was unable to pull up. Shall have to try again later. If I come across anything I shall let you know.
You might want to pull up the website and see if there are any volunteers who can look up information on the furniture store. If you find out anything let me know.
Again, thanks for your interest. I always like the story behind the facts.
