  • Notes 
    • It is rumored that Martha's son William "Bill" Melton Blalock real father was named Blackburn. However, that can not be proven. There were some people with the surname Blackburn in the area.

      William "Bill" Melton Blalock was the son of Martha Blalock who was born January 1846. Martha never married the man who fathered William. They appear in the 1870 Tattnall Co, GA census in the house of Julia Cook. Eventually Martha Blalock married Jacob Powell and they had 5 more children. Jacob and Martha are buried in Jarriel Cemetery, Tattnall Co, Georgia

      It is possible William's dad was one of the local Blackburn family, but this can not be confirmed.

      Martha was the daughter of David and Elizabeth Blalock. They appear in the 1860 Tattnall Co Census with their other two children. David was born around 1810 in one of the Carolinas.

      David is my brick wall. He is listed as having a son named "Harrison". My 2nd great grandfather was William H. Blalock. I am assuming that his middle name must have been Harrison. William and Harrison have the same year of birth, and they are the only Blalock family in Tattnall Co, GA in the 1860s. William also named one of his children with the middle name harris. I have linked them as the same person. I am about 90% certain of this link. It is that 10 % that bothers me.

      Do you have any idea who David M. Blalock is? I have been trying for years to figure out who he is and where he came from. I suspect his middle name is something like Melton or Millington. That is because Martha named her son William Melton.
