Hi Wayne and Debbie! I was glad to hear from you again. I have thought that Isaac was the son of
Luke and Catherine Osborn Blades for some time but had no proof. Here is what I have put together:
I may be on the right track, I hope so. John Blades born abt 1775 is the son of Luke and Catherine.
Isaac,born about 1780 is also there son. Daughters are Grace,Mollie, Elizabeth, Jane and Margaret
who was born Feb. 28th 1783. She married Burrell Banister July 9th 1799 in Abbyville, S.C.
I don't know why the name of Sailors keeps coming up, but I believe that Catherine was an Osborn
and the daughter of Thomas Osborn and Elizabeth Simpson Osborn.
My line is Isaac, born about 1780 and married to Sarah Higgs. Isaac, I just found out, is buried
in Bartholomew County (the county I live in) in a cemetery called Stringer. He died Feb. of 1865.
Sarah Higgs Blades died in Bartholomew County in 1834 and is buried in another unknown cemetery
in Bartholomew County Indiana. They were parents of : Sarah (my line) born abt 1800 in S.C. and
married in Franklin county Ind. to John Bradford in 1817. 2. Catherine, married Jesse Piles in
Franklin County Ind. April 24th 1822. Jesse died in Bartholomew County in 1845. 3. Anna, who
married Wm Stringer Jan. 29th 1824 in Franklin county Ind. This is the family graveyard where
Isaac Blades is buried without a stone. 4. Isaac Jr. maried Sarah Smith July 21st 1839 in Bartholomew
County. 5. Mary who married Richard D. Andrews who married in Franklin Co. Indiana Jan.9th 1825.
6. Matilda who married James Loller April 29th 1828 in Franklin co. Ind. and 7. John who married in
Franklin Co. Ind Sally Alley Dec. 3rd 1835.
Brother John,(brother to Isaac and son of Luke) was born abt 1775 and died in Bartholomew County
Ind. in 1841. He married Elenor Stucky. She died after 1841. They were parents of 10 children:
1. Jane who married James Hackelman Aug. 21st 1817 in Franklin county Ind. 2. Isaac who married
Patsy Lines( her second marriage) She was first married to a Matthew Faren. Patsy is the daughter
of Greenbury and Mary Hackelman Linesand was born abt 1802 and died abt 1880. Isaac and Patsy
Blades had a daughter named Rebecca. 3. Elizabeth who married George Windship in Rush Co Ind.
Feb 25th 1826. 4. Thomas Blades who I think married Dianna Hunt Mar. 13th 1827 in Shelby Co Ind.
5. James who I think married Mary Harcourt in Rush Co Ind Sept. 17th 1829. 6. John Blades who
married I think in Rush Co. Ind to Cassander Barrett Jan. 19th 1832. 7. George Blades who I think
married Sarah Jane Wilson in Marion county Ind. Feb. 13th 1847. 8. Susanna who married in Bartholomew
County Ind. Allen Anderson Jan 1st 1839. 9. Mariah who married Alfred Campbell March 19th 1839 in
Bartholomew Co. Ind. and 10. Lucinda who married Moses Joiner Jr. March 27th 1845 in Bartholomew
John Blades (brother to my Isaac) was a Baptist minister and was in Franklin, Rush and Bartholomew
Counties of Indiana.
In searching the Sailors family, I found that a sister of Catherine Osborn married a Sailors. I don't have
the data in from of me right now.
I would like to know where Luke and Catherine died and if there was a will. Does anyone know??
Hope this helps.If anyone gets help from this or wishes to compare notes, just let me know. Carol
