Hello! you would be a cousin of mine through
Martha Baxley who is the mother of John Blume born 1830 Blackville, SC, she is also the mother ( by her second marriage ) of my maternal great grandmother,
Mary Cornelis Nevils who married William Floyd Turner all of Blackville, SCar

John and his brother in law, Willie Turner were both in the Confederate War,
I have papers from SC archives on both,

My Mary Cornelia Nevils died in 1925, and her youngest child is my grandmother, Margaret Jennie Turner who married Noel Padgett in the Blackville Baptist Church, one of her attendants was a Blume cousin who was a triplett "one of three girls" born to C. M. Van Orsdell, Jr and his wife Daisy Blume. He was a well know photo artist.
