Our families are names Blankenship, Cameron, Ellison, Whitman, Bolan, and Mitchell plus other related families. Both of us were born and grew up in Alexander City, AL where we still live. We have 4 sons and 11 grandchildren.

Allen Robinson
Allen Robinson is my 5th generation direct ancestor on my maternal grandmother's side of the family.My mother is Mary Naomi (Winningham) Williams My grandmother is Vera Donie (Oliver) Winningham. From Tallassee. I would like to know if the birthplace of Allen is accurate, considering his three other siblings were born here, in Tenn. If his parents traveled to Ireland and came back (between children born here)there any ship record of a trip? Why would they travel to Ireland between two children's birth's, have Allen, and come back? Thanks for the lovely site.- RD

Blankenship's of Henrico Co., VA
I have traced this line of Blankenship's back to Ralph and Martha (Stanley) Blankenship of Henrico Co., VA, in the early 1700's. I hope it is the correct line.

Blankenships' in Kentucky
Good day Edith, I am doing the Blankenship family genealogy for those in Christian County Kentucky and those that moved out to Humboldt County California. I have traced them to your Blankenships. Henry B. Blankenship's Birth 20 Aug 1821 in Virginia, USA Death 9 Jan 1896 in Christian, Kentucky, USA

He is descended from Blankenship families in Chesterfield, Roanoke, Virginia, United States.

I hope I have my facts correct.

Thank you,
