THE BLACKSHEARS FAMILY HOMEPAGE

Updated March 18, 2006

About Our Family Research


I AM RESEARCHING THE BLACKSHEAR FAMILY FROM GARDNERS, MILLEN GEORGIA. THE NAME APPEARS IN THE 1840'S CENSUS. LEM BLACKSHEAR MARRIED A WAMAN NAMED AMANDA AND THEY HAD FOUR CHILDREN- REV. MATTHEW BLACKSHEAR, JULIUS BLACKSHEAR (WHO WE ALL KNOW AND REMEMBER AS UNCLE BUDDY), MARY BLACKSHEAR-WALDEN, FLORA BLACKSHEAR-KING. THEY LIVED AROUND THE FLORIDA AREA BEFORE MIGRATING TO ALL POINTS IN UPSTATE NEW YORK. REV. MATTHEW BLACKSHEAR AND HIS WIFE MARY ELLA BUTTS SET ROOTS DOWN IN UTICA, NEW YORK AFTER LIVING IN RICHFIELD SPRINGS. THEY HAD THREE SONS AND FIVE DAUGHTERS. HE STARTED THE FIRST PENTECOSTAL CHURCH IN 1942 IN UTICA, N.Y., WHICH HAS BECOME A LEGACY IN OUR FAMILY. ANY INFORMATION WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. I AM ALSO WILLING TO SHARE THE INFORMATION THAT I HAVE.

"AS THE PRODIGAL SON RETURNS SO SHALL WE"
FOR I AM PERSUADED THAT NEITHER DEATH, NOR LIFE, NOR THINGS PRESENT, NOR THINGS TO COME, NOR HEIGHT, NOR DEPTH, NOR ANY OTHER CREATURE, SHALL BE ABLE TO SEPERATE US FROM THE LOVE OF GOD, WHICH IS IN CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD. ROMANS 8:38-39
