The Christopher Cecil Blacklock family of Durham England Updated November 9, 2000
About Our Family Research
Christopher Cecil Blacklock arrived at Ellis Island on the day that Lincoln was assasinated with no wife and several siblings. He moved briefly to Doylestown, Ohio. One of the children, Jane Blacklock, was my great grandmother. She married Jacob Santrock and together they had 7 children. Grace Santrock was my grand mother. Christopher moved to Kentucky and remarried. He had several children, only two boys that I know of survived. One of them Robert Blacklock moved his brother Fred and Father Chirstopher to Colorado to work in the mines. He visited his halph sister Jane in Doylestown when he was in his 20's and fell in love with her daughter Grace. They ran away together and lived in Colorado. They had 3 children that survived. One was my mother Grace Cecil Blacklock. Eventually they migrated to Akron, Ohio where my mother, Grace met and married my father, Vincent Prats. There are 5 Prats children. I remember looking forward to all the Blacklock and Santrock reunions when I was a child. It was the only time I saw all my cousins. I have traced the family back to my grandfather Christopher Cecil. If there are any Santrock or Blacklock people out there, let's hear from you
