Hi Lisa & Randy,

I am also reserching the Blackwell Family for my book "The Descendants of Edward Williams Sr. of Spartanburg Co., SC.
and have included below all the information I have thus far on the family.
You may already have this but, George Blakwell was the father of Zeno George Blackwell Sr. and his mother was Narcissa Williams (daughter of William & Nancy Martin Williams). George's parents are Tench & Rhoda Elizabeth Blackwell.
I would very much appreciate your contacting me and shairing information cocerning your families.
Also a cousin from Cowpens, SC sent me a very nice picture of Zeno Blackwell, with a sort write-up concerning his funeral home, which I could send to you if you don't already have it.

Your cousin,
Johnny L. Williams

W.H. Jenkins of Chesnee is killed in road accident.
Collision of truck, Auto is fatal for driver; rites planed today.

William Hoyt Jenkins, 27 of Chesnee, was killed almost instantly about 2:30 a.m. yesterday
when the car he was driving collided with a truck near Chesnee, county officers reported.
At an inquest at Chesnee shortly before noon yesterday, a coroner's jury reported that Hoyt
Jenkins came to his death as a result of reckless driving on his own accord. Coroner John W.
Pearson said.
Only two witnesses were examined at the inquest. They were J.W. Maynor and Tod Loving,
both of Chesnee and both of whom were riding in Jenkins' car at the time of the accident.
Maynor and Tod Loving, both of Chesnee received slight injuries. They were dismissed after
treatment at Mary Black Hospital. Jenkins was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital,
officers said. He had head injuries, a fractured left jaw and fractured left arm.
Investigating the wreck were Deputy Sheriff B.B. Brockman and County Officer R.R. Souther.
Jenkins' death was the second traffic fatality of the year in the county.
Vehicles Damaged
They said both vehicles were damaged considerably. Their information was that Jenkins was
driving north on the Forest City road. When he reached a sharp turn to the right, he met the
truck, driven by G.C. Laughridge of Greenville, which was headed south.
Officers said Jenkins' car apparently headed straight into the left side of the truck, just behind
the cab, and struck the left side of the cab, hitting the front end of the truck bed and stripping
the whole side of the bed and side plank even with the chassis side members. Jenkins' car was
damaged in front of the driver's seat and also on the lift side.
Laughridge, who was not injured, said he was driving the truck at about 30 miles per hour and
had slowed down as he neared the curve.
