Death: May 11, 1891
Rusk County
Texas, USA

Daniel Blackstock married Malinda Deason (daughter of Joseph Deason and Jelico Cates) on December 12, 1839 in Pike County, Georgia. After Malinda's death on September 12, 1848, Daniel was left with five children under the age of 8. Within three months (December 8, 1948), he married Malinda's younger sister Nancy Caroline Deason in Pike County, Georgia.

Private Daniel K. Blackstock was a Confederate Soldier in Company F, Anderson's Texas Cavalry.

"Confederate markers were dedicated Sept. 19 at the Lewis Cemetery in Rusk County Minden community for two southern soldiers. Sons of Confederate Veterans Cross of Saint Andrew Camp #2009 of Cherokee County held a double military grave marker dedication Saturday, Sept. 19 in the Minden area of Rusk County. Markers were dedicated for two forgotten soldiers who served in the southern army during the war between the states. The veterans honored were Pvt. John Deason Jr. of Company B, 3rd Texas Cavalry and Pvt. Daniel K. Blackstock of Company F, Anderson's Texas Cavalry who are both ancestors of camp Color Sgt. Ronnie Blackstock.
Both veterans are buried in Lewis cemetery which is an old forgotten family plot on private property. The camp recently cleaned, restored and set these two markers to ensure that their service during war time would not be forgotten.
The ceremony began with an opening prayer, the Charge to the SCV, several tributes to southerners and the salute to the Confederate flag by Color Sgt. Blackstock.
Several descendants of these two soldiers read life and military histories on their ancestors and the troops in the rifle squad fired an honorary rifle volley to officially dedicate the two new military markers. The ladies of the Saint Andrew Southern Belles presented flowers as a final tribute to these forgotten heroes.
Dixie was sung by everyone in attendance to conclude the ceremony."
