John Blassingame IP: 188.8.131.52 Posted on May 5, 2009 at 12:35:02 PM by Nancy
I am puzzled by the entries I've found regarding the John Blassingame who was the first husband of Sarah Maria Sloan, daughter of David Sloan, Jr. and Nancy Trimmier.
I've seen him as John G E Blassingame on family trees but in court records - his will for instance - as John W M Blassingame. Also, there is quite a discrepancy regarding his death date. His will was administered by his wife's cousin, Thomas Major Sloan, in 1836 in Greenville County. But this site and others has him dying years later in Alabama. I think there may be some confusion between the Blassingames. Any guidance from Blassingame researchers would be appreciated. Thanks!!
(His will has been transcribed and is available on the SC Dept of Archives and History website) Replies:
