The following is the information that I have either found in original
records, transcribed books, World Family Tree Maker Files, LDS Files or
received from other individuals that are researching the Blankenship
Family. If you find what you believe to be your family in this line,
please verify your line with official documents. I am providing this
information just as a place for some to look for information. I am
attempting to verify my line; however, due to the extensive family I am
still working on it.

MY LINE IS: Ralph, John B., Isham, Elijah, Isham(Isom), William E.,
Julia O.)

You will find numbers on some individuals and not on others. The
individuals that will show up later in the listing with additional
family members will have a number. Those individuals that do no have
children listed later in this report will not have a number.
