Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my BLANTON ancestors for more than 30 years. We originated in England, then to Virginia, then to NC, SC, GA, AL and all points west. Am interested in contacting ANYONE who has ANY connection to ANY Blanton.

Leander Scates - Sorry, but I don't have any records to check. I just copied what was on the stone and posted it on the memorial......Jean

I FOUND HER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The reason I could not find her is because of her surname. It is PAIR.

I am putting her photo online, and will leave it up to you to make the changes.

Happy New Year - Merry Christimas - and Happy Birthday!!!

RE: Elmer Francis Robinson
I'm sorry but there is no tombstone for Elmer. I made that notation on the picture of his gravesite but you have to click on the photo to read that note. I double checked with the cemetery office to make sure I was at the correct site and they confirmed that yes, that was the correct site but they have no record of a memorial marker being placed there. Unfortunately, that does happen occasionally if there is no family or friend left to purchase one and the deceased did not make pre arrangements. If you are family, you may want to look into placing a marker there.

Thank you for the transfer. Did my Blantons link to any of your Blantons?

Sarah Jane Blanton (Wissel)
Sarah Wissel (9/4/1932~4/22/2003) was my paternal grandmother. She was the youngest of 7 children born to William Guy and Birtha Blanton (Scruggs).

The other 6, in order of youngest to oldest are:

Caroline Benett: 5/8/30~12/17/2007

Betty Fowler: 6/12/1928~10/12/1981

Louise Haulk: 12/18/1924~Feb. 17, 1991

Pantha Wilson: 4/28/1922~10/1989 (exact day of death is unknown to me. I do know her & Jim were buried at Maple Ridge Cemetery in Peoria County, IL and their grave is still sadly unmarked)

Hilda Cornwell: 12/8/1918~10/22/1987

And the first born was an infant son. My grandma once showed me the paper. I could swear his name was James, and I could swear he lived within 1917. Though there is a stone marked "Infant Son of Mr. & Mrs. Guy Blanton (unknown dates)" at Cool Springs Cemetery, where my great-grandparents are buried, that stone appears to be too new to be his. Though if it is right beside them, the mystery would be solved. I'd love to make it down there someday to see for myself.

One genealogy page lists their infant son as James William Blanton (Sep/17/1915~9/5/1916) who is buried in Palm Tree Methodist Cemetery, in an adjacent county. But there is also a James Blanton and a William Blanton buried in that same cemetery, and both are the right age to be his father. Not to mention, my great-grandparents were married in 1915. It seems unlikely they would have had a child born by September of that same year. I wish my grandma or one of her sisters were still alive because they could confirm these things.
