Please contact me if you have any information about this tree at or at . We're searching for ancester information as well as descendants of my uncle, Henry Blain (son of Benjamin, son of Solomon, son of Elam, son of Alam)

From the 1880 Delaware County History sometime after 1880, Elem (II) a widower by this time, went to Paulding, OH and lived with Solomon or other family there, and died there. "His father (Elam the first), was born May 15, 1760 , in New Jersey, who, at 17 years of age, enlisted in the Light Horse Command, under Gen. Anthony Wayne, and fought three years in the Revolutionary War. When in his 23d year, he was married to Catherine Read; she was born in New Jersey Oct. 28, 1763. A few years after his marraige, he moved to Pennsylvania, where he remained until 1815 when he came to Ohio, locating in Zanesville, and in 1820 came to Delaware Co., locating in Harlem Township, where he died in 1845, and some seven years later his wife died; they were members of the Christian Church."

According to 1850 Ohio census Elam Blain is married to a Sarah (maiden name not supplied) and the children include Solomon, Catharine, Matilda, Elam, Emeline, Leonard, Rhoda. Living with the family is also Catharine age 87, probably mother. Solomon is next oldest at age 22 in 1850.

Also looking for information about wives of Blain's: Idabelle Ferguson (Benjamin), Susanah Stanley (Solomon), Sarah Cockrell of Virginia 1807-1863(Elam) and Catherine Read of New Jersey mid 1763-1858(Alam).
