On my husbands side of the family there is a Bennett BLAKLEY, b. 1833, probably Sugar Creek, Putnam Co., OH.? (His father born in Ireland, according to the 1850 Census.) Would lke to find Bennett's parents and siblings if any.
Bennett BLAKLEY married Martha GUFFY, on August 17, 1854. Martha GUFFY, was the child of Issac GUFFY & Elizabeth Unknown, of Putnam Co., OH.
Bennett & Martha have children named:
Samuel R. BLAKLEY, b.July 1860
William J., b. abt 1862?
Charles I., b. April 28, 1863
Ullisses Blakley, b. Abt. 1868 (Also seen as US BLAKLEY & Grant BLAKLEY)
George Washington Blakley, b. Abt. 1871
Eva Blakley, b. 1878
Evelyn Blakley, b. abt 1878
I do not know if this is a complete list of the children or not???
