Notes

Note 1

CONNECTION BETWEEN GEORGE AND SARAH BLAKEMORE AND OUR FAMILY

Compelling evidence exists to support the argument that the George & Sarah Blakemore described in these Fold 3 records are the parents of Harriett Blakemore, the wife of our George Hall.

 

SOURCE DOCUMENTS AND SUPPORTING EVIDENCE (in chronical order)

 

1787 Sumner Co. marriage of George Blackmore and Sally Thompson 10 Sept 1787; in addition to the existence of a copy of the marriage bond, the marriage bond record was certified by the Sumner County clerk in 1841 as part of proof used by Sarah Blakemore in her widow pension application.

 

1806 Davidson Co. marriage between Harriett Blakemore and George Hall- 25 March 1806 – copy of original marriage bond obtained from Nashville Downtown Library Achieves. The Bondsmen were George Blackmore and George Dawson Black

 

Various Davidson and Lincoln county census records; George Blakemore was in Lincoln county by 1820. George Hall went from Davidson county to Lincoln county sometime after the 1830 census.

 

Lincoln county court Minutes 1836-1844 page 74 on 2 Oct 1837, George Hall was appointed administrator of the estate of George Blakemore who died without a Will.

 

1839 Land record V-366 Lincoln County

In September 1839, two years after George Blakemore died, George Hall bought out equal shares of land from Andrew Jackson Blakemore; George W Blakemore; Tarpley Flynt & Eliza M Flynt, his wife; & Thomas L Blakemore. The land is 75 acres, part of a parcel of 150 acres granted to George Blakemore. Sarah Blakemore signed the document. It was not recorded until 1856. These sellers appear to be legal heirs of George Blakemore, with Eliza being a daughter; however, we know that Tarpley Flynt married Eliza Claiborne (instead of Blakemore) on 22 Mar 1838. There are Chancery Court records from June 1838 that states Phil J Claiborne died in the summer of 1833 leaving a widow Eliza M Claiborne and infant and that Tarpley Flynt married Eliza Claiborne in March 1838.

 

1850 census has 80 or 81 year-old Sarah Blakemore, born in NC, living in the household of George Hall age 70, born in Virginia and Hammet Hall age 61, born in TN.
