I don't know alot about my genealogy, but I do know that my family descends from John Blatchford. Infact, we have a framed newspaper clipping written by John Blatchford about his capture. My Great-Great Grandfather was Benjamin Blatchford, a Sergeant in the Civil War and my Great Grandfather Ernest Blatchford was an amateur photographer. Much of his work documented the ship building industry in Gloucester. Over the years the photographs have fallen into other hands including the Gloucester Museum, the Bank of Boston and I have even seen them published in books. I would love to learn more!
