Surnames: Blesing, Blessing
My Blessing line goes from VA to Wisconsin.
My GGGGGrandfather was Abraham with an unknown wife; the first I encountered him he was a widower with two daughters, Elizabeth Jane Blessing b. 22 Dec 1822 in Wythe Co., West VA; died 03 Dec 1890, Lancaster, Grant Co., Wisconsin. Her younger sister was my GGGGrandmother, Ann Eliza Blessing, b. 25 Aug 1826, in Wythe Co., West VA. Ann married William James Winney in Grant Co., WI in 1845. Her older sister Elizabeth had married a man who was to become a Wisconsin state legislator, Luther Moulton Basford.
I have a copy of Abraham's signature for his daughter Elizabeth's marriage in 1839, Wisconsin.

The next place that I am aware Abraham lived was California, after the daughters' marriages and settling in Grant Co., WI. I have often wondered if we were related to the Greene Co., OH Blessings but I have no proof of this.

We have Indian blood and I am suspecting more and more that it originates from the Blessing line. Would love to know more substantial information.
