I am looking for information on a George Frederick BLACKWELDER who was born Nov. 1913 in NC. He died June 1984 in Cleveland County, NC. I have no information on his childhood or parents other than the fact that was born in NC. He said he left home at age 13 with nothing but a shotgun and never returned. He never mentioned his father by name, only called him some rather unflattering terms.
George married a Nellie SWINK. He married her rather late in life so I have no idea if there was a first family or not. Nellie was born in 1936 and died in 1987. She died in Cleveland County, but I believe she was born in Burke County. I know at least one of their children was born in Burke County.
Nellie appears to be the daughter of W.H. SWINK and Annie SPEAGLE of Burke County, NC.
Any help on Nellie and Annie would be greatly appreciated
