"The LaFayette Sun" - May 20, 1896:

Residence Burned.

The residence of Mr. J. M. Blanks, of Beat 4, this county, was burned last Sunday night. The residence was recently built and was a good one and Mr. Blanks has the sympathy of our people in his misfortune. The fire was discovered about 9 o’clock. Its origin is unknown. The loss is partly covered by insurance.


October 24, 1900:

The gin of Mr. Jim Blanks, in Beat 4, was burned on Sunday morning. The loss was heavy. We sympathize with Mr. Blanks in his loss.
"The LaFayette Sun" – October 2, 1907

Burke's Peak - We, with many friends and relatives, were shocked to learn of the death of Mr. J. M. Blanks, which occurred at his home in Lineville one day last week, from a recent attack of paralysis. His remains were interred at the cemetery at Rock Spring with Masonic honors. He was a consistent member of the Missionary Baptist Church. We sympathize with the grief stricken family.
