My Joel Blackwell was born ca 1737 most likely in VA. He has one brother proven by Will named Isaiah. It is believed that Daniel Blackwell is probably a brother as well.
My Joel Blackwell was married 3 times. He married the first time most likely in Orange Co. NC. His first wife was HENRIETTA Byars. Her name was NOT Elizabeth. All of the documents that I have for Joel's first wife name her ONLY as Henrietta. Therefore, the Joel Blackwell who is married to an "Elizabeth Byars" is NOT mine as your book claims.
There is a Rev. Joel Blackwell who is 15 years younger than my Joel. The two men have often been confused in printed articles, books, etc. Perhaps, this Joel also married a Byars. I do not have a wife or children for Rev. Joel myself personally.
I have two documents which list all of the children of Joel Blackwell by two of his wives. He did not have issue by the last wife. Neither of these documents mention an Elizabeth Byars as my Joel's wife.
It appears that the author of the book did the same thing as the others before her. She has confused my Joel with another Joel Blackwell or possible with Rev. Joel Blackwell of Rutherford Co., NC.
Would you be able to copy off the pages that pertain to my Joel Blackwell for $10?
