Well, that's interesting. I don't have an Anna Blanton, but I do have a David J McCarty b:19 Nov 1843. His sister Minerva m:Elias "Bud or Ed" Blanton. His brother Nelson m:Louisa "Dicy" Blanton. Alas, neither Elias or Dicy have a sister named Ann. Would this be our Dave McCarty of interest? Any clues to Anna's lineage?
