I've never heard of a Lillian Blanton... but then there's so much about our family that I don't know!

Do you know any Blanton's that ever lived in Florida? I'm looking for relatives of Darla Blanton, her dad was David and her mom was Ellen and she had a brother Alan. They were my next door neighbors growing up in Tampa.

RE: Blanton's
Not a whole lot actually. When my sister was born, she insisted to my mom and dad that they name her Gingerbell, or something stupid like that (with a bell in it)... my mom and dad refused and she didn't speak to them forever. At some point in the mid to late 80's, me and my dad drove to somewhere in bumf#*k Indiana and visited her one time. That's really all I know. She was not close to me at all.

RE: Andrew Blanton
Hi there! We must be cousins then. How are we related. My father is Kenneth L. Blanton, who was the son of Fee Calvin (F.C.) Blanton. He had 4 children... Mazie, C.B., Iris, and my dad. I do believe F.C.'s had 2 siblings, Robert and Octabelle. Does that narrow it down any?? LOL. Nice to meet you!! Drew

RE: Rutha Lee Baber
Sandy, I looked in the 1930 and 1940 census records and found Rutha in 1930 age 3.(but no Mabel) and Mabel in 1940 age 13 (but no Rutha). It would seem that they might be the same person, because I didn't find a death record for Rutha.

My grandma was named one thing in her first census and something completely different in the next one, so as strange as it sounds, it does happen. We found out that there had been a falling out with the family member she had been named for, so her parents changed her name!

RE: Baber
Hi Sandygirl,
I am sorry but I haven't heard of Rutha either. Did you find her in the 1940 census? If not, she most likely died young. That is odd that your Grandmother didn't mention her either - which gives more weight to the theory that she died very young.

Do you have access to If not, let me know and I will look through the Ky death records for her.

RE: baber cemetery
Hi Debbie,
Yes, I put the marker in the Baber Cemetery for my gg grandfather. It is not an easy cemetery to locate, and yes, it is on private land. I believe the owner is Tom Quisenberry. One of my relatives in Winchester spoke to him and was able to borrow the gate key to get on the property. Once we were on Mr. Quisenberry's farm, we had to drive through several pastures (I would recommend using a truck or SUV, because there are no roads) and through a creek. The area where the cemetery is located is at the edge of a pasture under a thicket of trees, and the old stone church nearby now stores hay and provides shelter for the cattle.

I took photos of every marker in the cemetery, so if your ancestors aren't listed, they may have a field stone for a marker. There were quite a few field stones in there.

The cemetery used to have a fence around it, but it has collapsed and cattle are free to roam inside. They have knocked over a lot of the headstones. It's a mess, unfortunately.
