I'm researching the Blansett Family Tree. So far the areas has been around the east central part of Indiana. Mainly in Jay, Randolph and Wayne Counties in Indiana from the years 1807 to present. I have done a little bit of research in Blanchester, Clinton Cty. Ohio where my great-great grandfather was known to be prior to residing in Randolph Cty., Indiana. I've been at present unable to get past this generation. Is there any one out there that can help me make the connection?
The names that I'm looking into the most is: AUKER, AUCKER, BARNES, BEALS, BLANSETT, BOYD, BRIGHT, CAMPBELL, DETRO, HAWKINS, HAWLEY, HIATT, HUFFMAN, INGLE, PIERSON, STONEROCK, SCOTT, SMITH, WINKLE, WOOD, WOODS.
I have been trying to graft many of our stray branches back to the tree since 1993, and of course some of the surnames are better recorded than others at present. I could use any help that I can get and I'm willing to share information.
