1843 seems to be a good birth date. In the 1850 Red River census, he is apparently listed as Benjamin McCrory, age 7, living with John McCrory near Elizabeth (Isabella ? Blanton Ward) "Word." In the school census of 1854 he is listed as B. F. B. Blanton with parent John McCrory, along with Samuel H. Ward, who had been in the HH of Elizabeth in 1850.
