The BLACKWOODS, who were in
Southeast Ohio in the mid-1800's scattered through out the mid-West,
to at least seven states.
I have traced them back
to the John BLACKWOOD family of Belfast Twp., Bedford County
in the very early 1800's. John Blackwood's will names: wife Rebackah,
sons: James and William, and daughters: Janey, Ezableand Nancy. John's Blackwood's will was
dated 16 Jan., 1804 and probated 17 April, 1805.
James Blackwood and his family
were living in Pennsylvania in 1820, and by 1830, the Blackwood
family had moved to Ohio, but James is not included in the listing.
I have never found what happened to James Blackwood. The records
say he was born in Ireland about 1774.
This is about all I know.
I would appreciate any help that anyone can give me.

Barbara Lee (1828
I have been trying in vain
to find the family of Barbara Lee, b. 22 Jan. 1828 in Bedford Co, PA, d. 25 Oct
1889 Tolono, Champaign Co, IL, married, 16 Jan 1851 to John Cook
in Bedford Co., Pa.
I have found Barbara Lee
living with Jacob and Matilda Dunkle on the 1850 census in Bedford Co, PA. Matilda
Lee / Dunkle was the daughter of George Lee and Mary Wertz.
It seems likely that Barbara was the sister of Matilda, but have
found nothing to substantiate this. Also living with Jacob and
Matilda Dunkle was a Benjamin Lee. These three must
have been related.
I would like to hear from
anyone who might have knowledge of their relationship. (Actually
would be esctastic just to hear from someone about them!)
