Thanks Ron. I went to a Trent family genealogical forum to get more on Margaret Elizabeth Trent’s lineage. They show no Margaret as a daughter of Obediah Trent and Nancy Blankenship but do show an Elizabeth H born 1815 who married David A Trent 28 Aug 1849 in Campbell Co. VA. So now I’m trying to reconcile that info with your info. I will put a query on the Campbell Co forum. What do you think?

Margaret's maiden was not Trent-it was Cumpton. William Milton Blankenship, my gg gf, married Margaret Cumpton on Sept 13, 1843, Montgomery County,Va. They were the parents of Joseph Friel, Elizabeth Adeline, Romulus Arthur, Lucretia, John William (my g gf) and Leonidas Wilborne. My gf, John Hampton Blankenship, my namesake, was the 5th child of John William Blankenship. Someone is posting incorrect information. Hope this helps. John Hampton Blankenship
