Chuck,I just came across your post on the Richard and Susannah Blankenship of Greenup County Kentucky and the Richard and Susannah of Daviess County, Missouri. The Richard of Greenup is my 4th great grandfather. His wife in the 1850 census is shown as head of household, but not sure if she was widowed.I have searched for years to find out what happened to Richard and have not found Susannah in any census since the 1850. Do you have the names of the children that moved to Missouri with that Richard? My Richard and Susannah had the following children: Ezekiel, John, (both stayed in the Greenup area), Elizabeth (married William Long and settled in Kansas), William, Joseph (both settled in Arkansas), Mary and Lorena (I have found no information on these two girls). I would be interested in any information you might have on this family. Thanks....Joyce
