In 1840 on census, Richard P. King, age 20-30, lives alone. He lives 3 homes from "Mrs Blalock" and her two sons, who I know to be William and Charles. In 1850, William Blalock (separated from wife Elizabeth Pitts Blalock) and his mother "L.M.Blalock" now live with "R.P.King" from NC. In 1860, William Blalock still resides with R.P.King in the household of Benjamin Singletary and his family. I can't find Richard P King after 1860 but I know William Blalock married a second time in 1860 and moved to Coffee CO, AL. My question: who is Richard P King? Is he kin to the Michael Devane King family out of Cumberland CO, NC? I'm wondering if he is a cousin to the Blalocks. Thank you in advance.
