Surnames: BLAIR, BRYAN, HAMMONS
James Pearl BLAIR was reported to have married Willie Bryant in bible and marriage records but I recently found that her name was BRYAN and that her father was William Bryan and mother Mary E. Hammons... I have a lot of information on the BLAIR, BRYAN and HAMMONS families from this area. Please contact me with any questions.

Surnames: BLAIR MARKUM DEHART
My ancestor is William Blair (1792-1854) who died and left a will in Cannon Co., TN and a widow Sarah DeHart Blair. Her maiden name (DeHart) has never been proven. Over a period of thirty years research I have discovered that there are basically two lines of Blairs in Cannon County (just north of Coffee County.) I've heard of two names - Black John Blair and Red John Blair. Apparently these families lived next to each other at one time near Short Mountain. The name James Pearl Blair is not familiar to me though there was a James Blair who was son of William. Looking forward to further communication with anyone with ancestors in Middle Tennessee. I would also recommend a membership in the international organization Blair Society for Genealogical Research. We have a very active organization and a database person very talented in connecting lines.

I've heard of that possibility of course but never have found proof. Do you think there might be a connection between our two families?

I am afraid not. My group came from Rowan Co. NC to Smith Co. TN and then to Warren and Coffee Co TN.

What are the dates of your Solomon Blair?

I'm also a descendant of the mysterious William Blair (1792-1854) who died in Cannon Co., Tennessee.

I was scanning through your "short" lineage...WOW, it was amazing. I still haven't figured out how to keep the family lines straight, I might have to study yours to get some hints.

After reading your info, I decided we're not related, but the name combinations in your family are strikingly similar to ones I've come across. It's kind of freaky.

Kudos on a great job! -Mari Blair

I am looking for information about a woman connected to Nancy Blair Bates, born NC abt 1800. Louisa Sarah M Tilla ?, (maybe Matilda?) born in TN 1821, was with Nancy when she went to Polk Co, MO. At first I thought Nancy was Louisa’s mother by a marriage before Allen Bates but I have found no supporting evidence. I found an 1830 census in Warren Co, TN for Allen Bates where he and a female were the right age range but there was no younger female. I would be grateful for any information anyone knows and would like to share.
