Charles left Caswell Co NC and was recorded in Nashville, Davidson Co, TN in 1805 and 1806 and then Barren Co KY census in 1810.
He married Nancy Vermillion in 1780 in Caswell Co NC. However there is another marriage of a Charles Blackard to Betty Henderson in Granville Co NC in 1783. I suspect that they are different Charles but am not certain.
Does anyone have any information on this Nancy Vermillion who was the daughter of William Vermillion of Maryland? Did she die before 1783 perhaps in childbirth as was unfortnately so common?
Also does Charle Blackard's migration coincide with the movement of the Vermillion family NC->TN->KY ?This might be a clue that Nancy was still living.
