|I am currently researching the Blanton family in Bexar and Kinney Counties - Texas. The search is extending to Georgia and overseas to Scotland. I have turned up many "Blanton's", but so far have not found direct connections to my relatives that lived in and around San Antonio, Texas. Through sketchy documents, I am led to believe that they would have been Lawyer's, Judges, and Cattlemen.|
The surname "Gillis" is on the maternal side of the Texas connection. James Dallas Gillis was my Great Grandfather, and reportedly was a cattleman / rancher in the San Antonio region.
Information relating to the above would be greatly appreciated. I am willing to share the limited information that I have.
