Re: Blackbourne Va>Al>Tx
Hi Vaughn, You didn't include any dates, or approximate dates, in your query, so I went back to your message history to see if you had done so in any other query.I see you are planning a family reunion and want to especially reach out to the Haywood's family, so I'll start there:
Combined info from TX Dth Idx and SSDI:
Haywood Blackbourne, b 3 Apr 1904; d 11 Jul 1968 Coleman Co, TX; last residence Novice, Coleman Co, TX; SS card issued in TX.
Johnnie Mae Blackbourne, b 10 Mar 1907; d 26 Aug 1989 Coleman Co, TX; last residence Novice, Coleman Co, TX; SS card issued in TX.
They had 2 daughters born 1933 and 1944 in Coleman Co, TX, and the following son also born Coleman Co, TX:
John Haywood Blackbourne b 1 May 1927; d 24 Jun 1995 Tarrant Co, TX; last residence Joshua, Johnson Co, TX; SS card issued in TX. [mother is Johnnie Mae Casey]
I would look for an obit for Johnnie, survivors are usually listed, and a good way to pick up names of married females in the family.If they lived out of the immediate area, often the town/state of their residence is included, too.And, then look for John Haywood, since he was the most recent, to find any of his immediate family.
Robbie George Blackbourne, b 25 Oct 1926; d 12 Dec 1992 Dallas Co, TX; last residence Dallas, Dallas Co, TX; SS card issued in TX.
Robbie was born in Coleman Co, TX; parents George Blackbourne and Ruth Ann ONeal.
Stallcup B. Blackbourne, b 3 Apr 1904; d 8 Aug 1980 Marion Co, TX; last residence Jefferson, Marion Co, TX; SS card issued in TX. [Twin to Haywood?They have same birth date.]
Tom Blackbourne and Esta May Morris had two daughters, one born 1930 Winkler Co, TX; one born 1932 Gregg Co, TX.
Using an online directory, there are only 2 Blackbournes listed in TX, you might try contacting them. http://www.four11.comhttp://www.four11.com
You might check the GenWeb county sites where some of these people live/died.Some GenWeb counties are putting their cemeteries online, and some are putting other info online, too.If not on the county site, try the archived section of the TXGenWeb Project.And, post your query on those sites, too.Blackbourne doesn't appear to be too common, and maybe someone will recognize the family.But, I suggest you include some dates to narrow down time period for the family.
Happy Hunting (^_^)
