John married Eleanor Morgan 25 March 1852 at Tipton, Cedar County, Iowa (Cedar Co, IA Marriage Records Vol.D Pg 26). They were the parents of Charles William Blaylock, Lewis Morgan Blaylock, Helena Blaylock(died 29 Sept 1856 on way back from CA), Oscar Vanroy Blaylock, Thomas Lee Blaylock, Angeline Blaylock Hill, Wallace A Blaylock, Martha Ellen Blaylock Coffman, Cora Alice Blaylock Wenger and Leo Adolphus Blaylock.

John and brother William went to CA before 1853 in search of gold with their families. They probably went by the overland Route of the Oregon Trail from Missouri and returned to Iowa about1858 and they are listed in the Cedar County Federal Census Returns of 1860. The trip was full of hardships and they found little or no gold.
