Joseph Blankenship who paid William Blankenship's bill?
Ralph

Ralph,

What I have in my records is the following and all of which could be wrong.
I show Ralph that married Martha as having six (6) children. They were
Richard, James, William, John, Ralph and Ann.
My line goes from Ralph1, Ralph2, then to William3.

To answer your question I think the Joseph that was helping Abraham and
Benjamin with William estate was the son of Ralph and Elizabeth, BROTHER of
William, Uncle to Abraham and Benjamin. This would have been Joseph
Blankenship, Sr. that married Mary Elizabeth Anderson.
Please check the following and let me know if I have it close to being right.
