Yep, just checked out the Blalocks buried at Michigan Memorial Park... they go back to North Carolina in the 1700's, so they are related. :-)

Added by EveyBl on Jun 18, 2015 10:32 AM

If they were in Michigan prior to 1850, then they are distantly related to us. Literally all of the Blalock/Blaylock/Blacklock families who were in America before 1850 trace back to just one immigrant, by the name of Thomas Blacklock, who arrived in Accomack, Virginia, in 1622. The grandsons all went different directions and chose different spellings of the last name. If you saw the name spelled Blalock, then they trace back to the same grandson as us... but probably many generations back. No other Blalock family shows up in America until a Scotsman decided to join the party in the mid 1800's. :-)

You're welcome!

As I mentioned before, if you have any other questions about the burials in Pleasant View, just drop me a note.

Thompson Children @ Pleasant View, MI
Hi Suzanne,
I am working on a large project of going through all the Pleasant View Cemetery records held by the Summerfield Twp Clerk to update the records in Find A Grave. I am adding pages when needed and requesting pages be removed when the people are not actually buried there. I am also looking up info and adding it to the others that are already there. Then, I am providing the data back to the Twp Clerk so they can update their records where they have missing or incorrect data. The Clerk provided me the records of the burials at Pleasant View and the 4 Thompson children are buried there in Sec: O.C., Lot #326, owned by Allen Thompson. In case you are interested, the following is the list of the 16 people in that plot:
Nancy (Thompson) Acebes
John Wesley Collum
Mathew Thomas Collum
Allen I. Thompson
Child Thompson
Clarence Everett Thompson
Earl O. Thompson
Grant Henry Thompson
Harry Thompson
Isaiah Allen Thompson
James Henry Thompson
Lawrence Thompson
Marcella Thompson
Mary Kathryn Thompson
Orville Thompson
Raymond Thompson
Just to let you know, I have not gotten to update all those records yet in Pleasant View. I did add the death certificates for 3 of your 4 Thompson children to their pages. The image is not available for James Henry. My guess is that the 4 probably don't have headstones. The majority of the burials with headstones already have Find A Grave pages. Most of the burials without stones don't have pages. That is the original reason why I started this project. I have a lot of family buried there and many of the old ones don't have stones.
In doing this, I have come across several burials that are either duplicates between the old Petersburg Village Cemetery and Pleasant View or they are listed in one when they should be in the other. Many times the death certificates and obituaries just say "Petersburg" for burial location. Since they are both in Petersburg, that makes it a little confusing and has lead to lots of mix-ups.
I hope this gives you the information you are looking for without too much extra babbling along the way. If you have any more questions, just let me know.

I am not sure I said, "Thank you" for you going out and taking her grave photo, so, "Thank you." I'm reaching the point I can't walk in cemeteries anymore so I couldn't get out there, myself. I really do appreciate it.

Best Wishes,
