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.

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.

RE: Bettie Wright
Joseph Wright and Mary Jane Blanton were my 3rd great grandparents via their daughter Charlsy. I think we've chatted before. :-)

Actually, I don't see the changes. Are we talking about the same person?

RE: Green Hill Cemetery
Evelyn, I can do that. His wife is still living. Or I should say there is not death date on her side.
