I too was born and raised in Morris County, I lived in Chester for twenty three years. There are so many Blanchards it's hard to tell which ones are related! There were at least to Blanchard families to start with in Morris County Was was AAron Blanchard and his brother, the other was mine line who came from Elizabethtown (John Blanchard). My grandmother, a Blanchard was born and raised in morris plains as was her father. There are so many Blanchards in that area it's unreal!!
