RE: Isaac Blades
Sorry, I don't have any Luke Blades in my files, so I guess I'm not much help to you . . .

RE: Eunice Mitchell
Hi, Carol,

It is good that you have continued following the May line, as I am quite convinced that the Eunice Harmon buried outside Brownstown, whose gravestone I photographed (my 5th great-grandmother, I think) never married a man named "May".

She seems to have died very soon after having had my 4th great-grandfather, G.W. Mitchell, who was raised by James Mitchell's next wife - so well and so long that he regarded his step-mother as his mother. Eunice had been married before, but to a man with whom she had the two girls she brought into the Mitchell marriage, Malinda and Lucinda.

My ancestor Eunice was born in Woodford, Kentucky in 1774.

Best regards,

Karla Schmidt

RE: Isaac Blades
My information is courtesy of fellow researchers, so I cannot confirm, but . . . I believe Isaac was born in either Queen Anne or Caroline County Maryland. I believe his father, Tilghman was also born in Maryland.

Hi Carol,

No, I'm sorry, I don't know. The cemetery transcript was very sketchy and not complete. Do you want a transfer? Let me know at your convenience, I'm always happy to transfer.

Take care and have a nice weekend!

Find A Grave Memorial# 57127865, just saw the note you left with the flowers. The name has been fixed, and you added the sister. I doubt that they will be confused again. Check it out when you can. She is my 6th Great Grandmother per (just FYI).

Sorry took so long to get back to you, I hadn't had a computer for awhile, they don't work so good after you knock it off the table.

I have to install my FTM hopefully today, and I'll see if I have the answer. I have some work to do on the Hooks on Find A Grave, if any of them you would like transfered that's not close related to me I'll be glad to transfer them to you. I'll get back to you soon. Good to hear from you

RE: Ephraim Davis
I don't buy the theory that E. Davis shared two families....almost impossible with the distance involved...I hope you can prove these are two different people and families.

I really don't know the background on Charity. Some other relative of hers requested the entry about her name. If you know for a fact that she was a "Nelson" let me know. Thanks.

Ephraim Davis
Ephraim Davis #35115303...I agree with you; I can't make myself believe Ephraim Davis led two separate lives with two different wives and families...1000 miles apart. That would be hard to do today with automobiles and planes. I honestly believe someone found another Ephraim Davis that truly isn't the right person.

Years ago while searching for a person in my family tree I found two listings in the census from different states. Both had wives with the same name and several of their children had the same name...but was clearly not the same families.

Just saying....

RE: Deweese
Sorry Carol,

~*~All Deweese Share A Common Haritage Deweese Family ~DESCENDANTS~
The name "Deweese" was originally "de Wees" meaning "the orphans". It is of Holland Dutch origin and is said to have came into use as a surname about the eleventh century. Adrian Dewees of Amsterdam, Holland who died in the thirteenth century, is said to have descended from the ancient lords of Kessel in Guilderland. His oldest son, Garrard (Garrett) settled in England during the reign of Henry Vlll, and there established the English "D'Ewes" family, which is the surname of the Earl of Warwick, whose coat of arms was visited in 1709. The earliest settlers of the name in America were Garrett Hendricks DeWees, his wife, Zytian~ Compiled By: Clyde Jeril Deweese
~*~-All-Dewees-share-a-common-heritage>Tamie DehlerThe Tribune-Star The Deweese/Dewees family name is an example of a surname where all of the families in the United States share a common heritage, all descending from a single ancestor. This family comes from the Netherlands. Dewees is one of the early permanent surnames of Holland, as the country used patronymic names (taking the given name of the father as the surname of the child) for many years. Currently, there are no people in the Netherlands who have the Dewees surname, but many in the United States with this surname. It is possible that this is a unique surname and that the single progenitor brought it with him when he left Holland.***The progenitor of the family in the United States was Garrett Hendricks ed below; Isaak Dewees (1619-before 1657), who married Trinjte Jans in 1846 in the Netherlands; Gerrit Dewees (1625- before 1657), no known marriage; and Tryntje (pronounce the "je" as "ie") Catherina Dewees (1626-before 1674), who married Johannes De Visscher in 1657 in the Netherlands. Adriaen Hendricks de Wees died about 1674 and wife Hildegond died in 1656, both in Amsterdam. They were members of the Dutch Reformed Church.***Second generation: Adriaen's son Hendrick Dewees was born about 1615 in Beverwijk, Netherlands. Hendrick was christened on December 6, 1615. He married Adriaentje Jans on April 22, 1640, in Leiden, Netherlands. Adrianetje Jans was born in Alphen aan den Rijn, Netherlands, parents unknown. She died after November 1661. Hendrick and Adrianetje had four children: Garrett Hendricks (1641-1700), who will be discussed below; Jan H. (1641-1674), William H. (1643-1663); and Nelletje H. (1649-1663). The father Hendrick Dewees and his brother Isaak later moved to the East Indies, where it is believed that they both died.
***Third generation: Garrett Hendricks Dewees was born was born in Amsterdam, Netherlands, about 1641. He married Sytie Lieuwes, daughter of Lieuvens, on Sept. 28, 1662, in Lieuwarden, Netherlands. Sytie was from the province of Friesland in the Netherlands and was born before 1649. Garrett Hendricks and wife Sytie immigrated to the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam (now New York City) around 1663, embarking from the Dutch province of Friesland. They moved to Germantown (now a part of Philadelphia), Pennsylvania, in 1690 and purchased land there. Their children were: Divertie (born 1666 New York), Lewis (1670 New York), Ariantie (born 1673 New York), Lambert (born 1675 New York), Hendrick (born 1677 New York), William (1679 New York-1745), Lysbeth (born 1681 New York), and Cornelius (1682 New York-1735 Philadelphia).***If you have a Deweese/Dewees lineage, your line will go back to one of the children of Garrett Hendricks and Sytie (Lieuwes) Dewees and your research will take you back to Germantown, Pa.~*~

RE: Margaret Blades Bannister
By the way, Carol I submitted an edit to change it to Catherine Osborn. It is not my page and it is already so interlinked with the Hackleman's you might be better off creating your own for both sisters and eventually Find-A-Grave will delete and/or merge were needed. I am not unreasonable and want these to be correct also.

RE: Luke Blades
Hi Carol, it seems to me you do not read the postings very well. Concerning Luke Blades, the memorial page clearly states the following:
"He last shows up in the 1800 Census in Abbeville County, SC, but exact death place is unknown."
And concerning your ridiculous comment about deceiving people, the painting from Gilbert Stuart's work entitled "Mrs. Blades and her daughter" if you actually click on the picture you will see I have clearly posted the following disclaimer: "(Disclaimer): Uncertain if this is Margaret with mother Mary Catherine.)
Yes, Luke Blades is also my 5th great grandfather and have acquired a lot of information. My mother is a Banister (only one N by the way, has always been used in our family. If two N's are used, like the way you wrote it, it is in error.) Burrel Banister is my 4th great grandfather. I will say Margaret was not a Sailors in case you are going down that path. Johann Hackleman's mother had the Sailors maiden name (Mary Elizabeth Sailors). Mary Ann Catherine also had a younger sister named Fanny Osborn who married John Sailors. I have much more, and you should reach out much more politely and much less obnoxiously if you want people to help. Good day, 'Mam.
