I found an L.W. Blackshear in the 1870 Quitman Co., GA census records, with his children: Mary A., Julia, Alfonse, and John, along with a James Ray.
This was entry # 477-493.
According to my family records, my great-grandmother's mother was Julia A. (July) Blackshear (Blackshire) and Julia's father was Leonidas W. Blackshear. I am trying to find who Leonidas' parents were.
I have found mention of a Leonidas Wiley Blackshear, and a Julia A. Blackshear, but it doesn't show who their connection is to.
Also, according to Blacksheariana, there is no such person as Leonidas W. Blackshear.
