Researching the following with NO luck thus far:

Benjamin Blackburn b early 1800's England
married Ellen Johnson

Walter Blackburn b mid 1800's England
married Elizabeth Hannah Sedgewick b mid 1800's England

Children of Walter and Elizabeth Blackburn:
Earl b abt 1869/79 England
Annie b 1872 England d 1971 Michigan
Ellen Jenkinson Blackburn b 1883? England d 1926 Michigan

Sources say this family came from West Yorkshire, but have no viable proof.

Any information GREATLY appreciated. "stuck"

Dear Jackie, Have you tried
The town of Blackburn is in Lancashire, England, from whence sprang all Blackburns.
Earliest record I found was John de Blackburne ( Knight) born 1720 in Wiswall, Lancashire.
My great grandfather was Fergus O'Connor Blackburn married Miss.... Seddon.

Frank-I am writing a book on a branch of the Blackburn family from Lancashire. Would love to communicate with you, and exchange some names... My Blackburns lived in Manchester, Newton-le-Willows, Oldham... all in Lancashire. My genealogy goes back to my 5th great grandfather, William Blackburn who married Mary Pearson. William was born ca. 1760. Am interested in knowing more about Lancashire Blackburns, and maybe, just MAYBE finding someone who is related to me through my Blackburn line beyond my great great grandfather, who is the topic of the book.

Hi - I just saw your posting and am wondering if you have my Blackburn. My Blackburn is Vincent Blackburn born 14 Mar 1806 in England possibly in or around Prestion in Lancashire. He died 29 Oct 1870 in Florence , Oneida Co , NY. He married Ann Pollard 16 April 1827 in Preston , Lancashire England. Ann was b 19 Feb 1804 in England possibly Preston. She died 2 Jan 1877 not sure where possibly in Schenectady or in Florence NY not sure . Both she and Vincent are buried at the Vale Cemetery , Schenectady NY.They had 6 children and at least one of them was born in England. The children are Alice b 21 June 1828 in England d 7 Jan 1896 Union Twsp NJ m David William Consaul, Mary Ann b 22 Jan 1830 d 24 May 1899 m Jacob Sanders Glen, Vincent Blackburn Jr b 1834 m Margaret Foreman,Anna Electa b 1841, Peter H b 1841 and Frances b 17 Sept 1848 d 10 Aug 1870 in Schenectady , NY. Is there any connection between your Blackburns and mine . Would love to exchange information and give some input from this side of the pond. Jan

I do not know of any connection. I am gathering descendants of my great great grandfather Alfred Lamb Blackburn, born in 1849 in Lancashire. I have only a short list of Blackburns beyond him.

Wish I could help. I have gathered quite a large amount of information about Alfred, but beyond his parents I have nothing on the Blackburn line. My Blackburns were Latter-Day Saints, and left England between 1869 and 1890 or so. Alfred's father Samuel was not close to his family, and so I really have very little on his ancestry. I have back to his grandfather on his Blackburn line, but, nothing further despite my efforts.

Vincent is not a name in any of my Blackburn lines--There are quite a few Blackburns out there, and so many lines which connect someplace but no one is exactly sure how.

No--my previous message did not really deal with Pennsylvania Blackburns. Your reply should have been just a message to the message board--as it would have been better recieved by the message board. Its smarter to start a new message, rather than reply to another's message unless you think their is a direct correlation.

Sorry, we do not connect. All my Blackburns went directly from England to Idaho and Wyoming.

Do any of your Blackburns connect with Thomas Winfield Scott Balckburn, born 11/3/1849 in Tennessee, died March 12, 1925. Had a daughter named Anna Lydia Blackburn born July 20, 1888 in Olathe, Co and Died July 31, 1943 in Denver Colorado. Buried in Trinidad, Colorado.

Thanks for any information you might have.

My Blackburns came from England, emigrated to Canada, then to IL. There is an excellent Blackburn site for the southern Blackburns. Have you visited it? This line came from Ireland. Sorry I couldn't help. Happy hunting. Doris
