[NC] Barnes & Blackshear
I am a member of CAAGS and know Alva. I have connected to the Tues. nite chat session on several ocassions.
Cager Barnes married Darcus (Dorcas). Records indicate that he was born in Alabama in 1802 and she in 1805, however, I realize Ala did not become a state until about 1819. So it could have been Mississippi territory.
Abram Blackshear married Amanda Holland in Montgomery Co. Alabama. I am only aware of 2 children, altho, I believe there were others. William Blackshear who married Margaret "Janie" Tresevant, They had two children: Beatrice Blackshear and Phoecion Blackshear. William Blackshear moved to Washington D.C. and divorced Janie. I have not been able to find any other info on William Blackshear. I was told he worked in the White House with President Theodore Roosevelt, and Edward L. Blackshear who married Rachel Works. They
