Henry Walton Blair

I am trying to find information on my gr.grandfather Henry Walton Blair b. Abt. 1870 d. Abt 1932. I believe my gr.grandmother's name was Maggie Thomas and they
had one daughter Willie Mae Blair (Hill), my grandmother. Henry was also married to a Belle ? and had two children, Jack and Lenore. A copy of the obituary was sent
to my grandmother and signed "Your Cousins Grace Ennis Wayman and Theo Carney". The obituary was in the Knoxville News-Sentinel but I have no date. It read:
Henry Walton Blair died at 3 P.M. Thursday at his home, 718 Luttrell Street. He was 62. He was a member of the Baptist Church, and of Holston Council, Jr.

Surviving: his widow, Mrs. Belle Blair; two daughters, Lenore Blair and Mrs. Mae Hill of Atlanta; one son, Jack Blair; five sisters, Mrs. Anna Schape, Mrs. W.A.
Carney, Mrs. A.R. Ennis of Knoxville, Mrs. J.C. Miller of Harriman, Mrs. Clara Wilmoth of Oklahoma; two brothers, S.P. Blair of Knoxville and Lonas Blair of
Oakland, Calif.

Funeral at 2 P.M. Saturday (sp) at Seven Island Church, Kimberlin Heights, the Rev. B.M. Larson officiating. Burial in the church cemetery.

Pallbearers: John T. Parkinson, J.C. Ramsey, George Simmons, Foster Young, Clarence Copeland, and Ireland Hansart.

So all I know is that Henry was buried in Knox County Tennessee.

Alameda County
