Hi, this has been a hugh mystery for my family and today I dug into it a little bit deeper and found a little bit of new information for me. So I thought I would share it here in case it helps and connects us in some way.

1900 Milam County Texas Census

Sheet 12b
Line 61
M. A. Blancett, White Female, age 52, b. April 1848 in Tennessee, Parents b. Tennessee
she is a widow, 9 children born, 5 living
Daughter: Mary Blancett, age 18, b. April? 1882 in Tennessee

Son: Robert Blancett, age 8, b. Feb 1892 in Tennessee
Grand Daughter: Myrtle Blancett, age 8, b. Aug 1892 in Tennessee
Grand Son: Harvey Blancett, age 5, b. Feb 1895 in Texas
"Thomas and Lizzie Yaws with son Claude? are living next door to the blancett family. "

The Grand Son Harvey Blancett in the 1900 Milam County Texas census, I believe to be
James Harvey Blancet, my Great Grand Father. I know the Yaws to be related to the Blancet's because my Grand Mother Polly Marie Blancet took me to some of the Yaws tomb stones located in Roswell New Mexico.

James Harvey Blancet b. February 11, 1894 was reported to be the son of George Blancet, but so far I have found no information on George. George apparently was deceased before 1900.

Questions:
1. Was George Blancet the father of James Harvey Blancet?
2. M. A. Blancet, what was her full name ?
3. Who was the wife of George Blancet?
4. Did James Harvey Blancet have any other brothers or sisters other then Myrtle?
5. Where in Tennessee did this family come from? I have been told they came from Perry County Tennessee, but I have no proof they came from there.

WW 1 Civilian Draft Records
Last Name First Names Birth Ethnic GRP Birth Site or Other Info City/County State District
Blancet James H. 11 Feb 1894 W Cameron TX Cimarron OK
Blancet Robert 12 Feb 1892 W Linden TN Cimarron OK , died 7/8/1930 Cimarron County Ok, buried in Marella Cemetery

Years ago, I thought Robert Blancet was James H. Blancet's brother, but now it appears they are Uncle and Nephew.

Thanks for any help :)
Great Grand son of James Harvey Blancet and Onieta Pollock

Hello Donald,
I was interested in your information for Blancets in Tennessee and Texas in 1900, 1920 and 1930. My line is Blanset from Missouri, but I have been trying to unravel the other branches from census data.

One that is relevant to you is the 1880 census for Perry County, Tennessee, District 2, Enumeration District 146, p 386A, line 24, family 6. The last name is so faint that it is virtually unreadable and was not included in the on-line indexes, but Eual Blansett Jr identified the family as Blancet in a manuscript he sent me on “other Blansetts.” The complete family is
J H Blancet 38 self AL AL AL farmer
M A Blancet 38? wife TN TN TN
G H Blancet 9 son TN AL TN
E J Blancet 7 dau TN AL TN
M E Blancet 5 dau TN AL TN
N E Blancet 2 dau TN AL TN
M J Blancet 1 M dau TN AL TN
If you want to find this family by using an index, look for W A Richardson, the head of household just before the Blancets.

There are several things that point to J H and M A Blancet being the grandparents of James Harvey Blancet, your great grandfather.
1. In 1880, J H and M A Blancet list a son, G H. This is a match for the information you have that James Harvey’s father was George Blancet.
2. J H Blancet in 1880 reports he was born in Alabama, which matches the information given by the 1900 children of M A Blancett about their father.
3. The youngest daughter in 1880, M J Blancet, age 1 month, is a reasonable match for Mary J age 18 in the 1900 census (though 2 years off).
4. In 1900, M A Blancett said she and her parents were born in Tennessee. This matches the information for M A Blancet in 1880.
5. In 1900, M A Blancett reported she had borne 9 children, 5 of whom were listed with her. If you add the four other children listed in 1880, that makes 9.
6. I have been unable to locate a G H or George Blancet (by any spelling of last name) in the 1900 census who could be James Harvey Blancet’s father; this is consistent with the idea that George had died before 1900 and that’s why the children Myrtle and Harvey were living with their grandmother.
There are some discrepancies and questions though.
1. In 1900, M A Blancett gave her age as 52 and birth date as Apr 1848. In 1880, M A Blancet gave her age as 38, or at least that is what is listed in the familysearch.com transcript, but in the on-line image the second digit of her age is so faint it could be almost anything.
2. Who was James Harvey Blancet’s mother, and what happened to her that caused her two children to be living with M A Blancett in 1900?
3. Who were J H Blancet’s parents and where did he live before 1880? I have been unable to find him in the 1870 census. I would recommend a more thorough search (deeds, tax records) in Perry County Tennessee to find out how long he lived there.
I would be very interested to know if you can trace J H Blancet’s line back farther. It may intersect with mine.
By the way, this family is in the 1910 census too, in Oklahoma, Cimarron County, Willow Bend Township, Enumeration District 108, p 309, line 68, family 68, Township 1N Range9E. This matches the WWI draft information you had from that county. The census listing is:

Blancet, Mary A, head, 62, widow, farmer, 9 children, 1 living, born Tennessee, both parents Tennessee.
Blancet, Robert B, Son, 18, single, farm laborer, home farm; born Tennessee, father AL, mother TN.
Blancet, Harvey, grandson, 16, single, farm laborer, born Texas, both parents Tennessee.
Mary is listed as owning her farm, so it might be worth looking for land records. Although Mary lists only one child as living, I know her son Brice was alive and probably others. I think she interpreted the question as “children living WITH you.”
This is a tough family to trace! Hope we can work it out.

Hi Janet
Thanks for the great help. You break things down much like I do.
The family has known for a great many years that they came from Perry County Tennessee.

Robert Blancet was the only one to continue living in Cimarron County Oklahoma as you mentioned.
He being the same Robert listed in the WWI record

Grand Son: Harvey Blancet, age 16, b. Texas, Parents b. Tennessee

I have searched the 1870 Alabama Census Index's and have not found J. H. Blancet as of yet. I know Alabama is the key with out a doubt. The 1870 census Index for Blancet / Blancett / Blansit / Blansitt so far has not revieled a J. H. Blancet, so I will keep looking, he has to be in that census I am sure.

How anyone can read the 1880 Perry County Tn census is beyond me, I am looking at it as I write this and the surname isn't clear that is sure. If I get the time next week, I will visit the Denver Library Genealogy dept and see if I can find more.

Thanks and I will keep you updated

More on the ancestors of James Harvey Blancet (1894-1962). I believe I have James Harvey Blancet's grandfather (also father of G H Blancet, James Harvey's father) in the 1870 census:
1870 census for Tennessee, Perry County, 11th Civil District, Linden, p 501 line 33 family 66:
James Blancet, 23, works on farm, $100 personal, born Alabama, can't write.
Mary A, 22, keeps house, born Tennesse.
They are both marked "married within the year" with the notation "(Oct)".

This meshes with a record from familysearch.com from the Perry County Tennessee courthouse records that James Blancet married Mary A Richardson on 14 Oct 1869.

I traced previous censuses to find Mary A Richardson in her original family. I believe she is in the 1860 census for Perry County, Tennessee, Linden, p 300, line 23 family 116. The family is
William Richerson, 33, farmer, $300 Real, $75 personal, b Tennessee
Martha J, 32, b Tennessee
Maryan, 12, b Tennessee
Elizabeth, 10, b Tennessee
Nancy J, 10, b Tennessee
Andrew J, 6, b Tennessee
Martha C, 3, b Tennessee
Mima C [female], 1, b Tennessee.

Don't know where James Blancet was in 1860.
