Tammy:

I was wondering if your Blalock line connected with Elbert Blalock, b. 1793 Person Co., NC? Elbert had a brother, Benjamin, b. 1791 NC. Their parents were John and Catherine (Cash) Blalock; John's parents were Millington and Eliza (Mason) Blalock. Elbert m. Hannah (maiden name unk) and they had the following children b. 1826-1845 (NC-TN):

Fielding
Mary
Lucy
Samuel
Catherine
Jane
Sarah
Franklin
Matilda

Samuel Blalock married my g-g-aunt, Elizabeth Murphy 1851 Meigs Co., TN. A few other surnames connected with my Murphy line are Cash, Blythe, Lovelace, Hefley, Tillery, Ford. I know these families eventually settled in AR, then in TX and out west. I was hoping to get more information regarding the children of Samuel and Elizabeth Murphy Blalock; any death dates and burial places. I have limited family history on the Blalock, but will be more than happy to share whatever I have with you.

Thank you,

Cheryle
