I am looking for a connection between the Hendersons and Blackmore families.Uriah Henderson married Miami Blackmore.They lived in Ashtabula Co OH.They were married in 1833 and Miami was from Austinburg. These two people have 3 children Wallace, Orwell, and ?. Uriah Hendersons parents being Chloe Austin and John Henderson. I believe the Austin family had something to do with the town of Austinburg in Ashtabula Co OH.Chloe was born in Conn. One of the sons of Uriah and Miami (Blackmore) Henderson went to Colorado and was a pioneer of the town of Leadville. His wife was Mary and they had sons Will and George.. I am looking for the Henderson connection.I believe this may have taken place in Washington Co PA.My ancestor Uriah Henderson was born 1811.He shows up in Fayette Co PA after his marriage in 1838 at Washington Co PA.He lived there until he moved his family to IL about 1854.I found another Uriah Henderson in Frederick Co MD in the 1830/40 period of time.He died and is buried there.His father is said to be a James Henderson.So I believe that if I can find the connection in the 3 Uriah's and their families I could find the father of my Uriah.I followed some of the Blackmore family and they appear in a large group as early as the 1790's in MA.They are also in Mass and about 1800 a couple go to KY.Here are some of the Blackmores I have found.
...in a very early record of the proceedings of the Council of Maryland 1696-98 there was a "high Sheriff of Anu Arundell Co and acquainted the Board that by Virtue of his Excelencys proclamation for supressing Pyrates he had taken into his custody M'John Blackmore and M'William Cotter being called in and examined before his excellency in Council they say they went out of Jamaica under the command of one George Rainer in a private man of war Cimmissionated by the Lord Inchequin then Governor of Jamaica, went from thence to the red Sea and returned to Carolina having been out near two Years from Carolina they went to Pensylavania and from thence they came hither to Maryland in the Year 1692 in the time that Colonel Copley was Governor of this Province...." 1790:there was a Ezekel Blackmore and Levi Blackmore at Windham Conneticut Thompson twp.Ezekel lived next to Jacob Reynolds IN West Maryland running the Clearspring Old Tavern there was a Wm Blackmore in 1821 1800:Ezequal and Henry Blackmore from Windham Co thompson twp in Conn. 1810 in Washington Co PA Peters twp-William Blackmore and Thomas Blackmore 1810 in Maryland Washington Co Conocoheague Hundred was a Wm Blackmore. and in 1800 there was a Samuel and Mary Blackmore in Beaver Co PA OH twp. There were no Blackmores in Conn. from 1810-1830 1840 at Luzerne Washington PA there was a Anthony Blackmore age 40/50.
James and Arabella Blackmore and Patrick of Pittsburgh PA.Grandfather Blackmore (of this family) was a t one time mayor of Pittsburgh.(I found this to be abt 1868 and the mayor to be a James Blackmore).
There was a Charles Bryant of Vermont and his mother was a Eunice Blackmore.
If anyone could help me with the Henderson/Blackmores I would be so grateful. Thanks so much. Lois
