(BELOW NOTES of CARL ANDERSON, 27 Dec., 1998)

WILLIAM B.4 BLANKS (THOMAS3, THOMAS2, JAMES1) was born Abt. 1827 in Charles City County, Virginia, and died May 1874. He married MARY E. Abt. 1848 in Charles City County, Virginia. She was born 1829, and died September 14, 1902 in Claybank, Charles City County, Virginia.

Notes for WILLIAM B. BLANKS:
by 1860, William had a substantial farm with real estate valued at $3500 and personal property valued at $955. Apparently in 1860 he also had a family of a Christopher Haynes, wife Elizabeth and infant daughter Lucretia living with his family.

"William was born and raised in Charles City County, Virginia, but the records are very confusing about the date. The records show: tombstone-d. May 1874 aged 63 years (b. 1811): 1850 Charles City Co. Census (r. 939, p.408) age 28 (b. 1822); 1860 Charles City Co. Census (r.1340, p.118) age 42 (b. 1818); 1870 Charles City Co. Census (r.1639, p.541) age 53 (b. 1817) and the death register (Charles City Co. Historical Society Library) d. Jun. 1872 age 45 (b.1827). Based on the time his father's land on Morris Creek was in estate, the birth date about 1827 is probably most correct, since inheritance was normally age 21. William was a farmer and owned 227 acres of land when he died. He is buried in the Old Micah Church Cemetery on the left side of State Route 623, 2.1 miles north of State Route 5 in Charles City County." (notes of Carl Anderson, 27 Dec., 1998)
