I am aware of the Daniel Blanks who married Susan Skates on Jan 30, 1842 in Coweta County, GA, and the Daniel Blanks who shows up in the 1850 census in Chambers County, Alabama with a wife named Susan(across the river from Coweta/Heard Co., GA area.) with children Andrew, William, Mary and James. Daniel Blanks family is in Chambers Co., AL in 1860 census.There is a Daniel Blanks in Clay County, Alabama in 1870 census and an Andrew Blanks in Barbour County, AL in 1870 (from census index). I don't know how or if Daniel Blanks was related to John Henry Blanks family. There were some Blanks families in Henry County, Georgia who may have been related to the ones in Coweta/Heard counties, from my notes, as a possibility but not documented. I have more info on the Hogan families who were in multiple family lines related to my Gay/Skinner/Teal families, than the Blanks families.The Blanks family is a collateral line of my Ashley family.
Just as a note, there was a Daniel Blanks who married Martha Davidson on Sept 8, 1835 in Marion County, GA and do not know if or how he may have been connected to the Daniel Blanks who married Susan Skates in Coweta Co., GA in 1842. That's about all in my notes on the Blanks families.
