Charles Millington Blaylock

Aged: 84 years
Charles Millington Blaylock was born in North Carolina about 1786. He married Philadelphia Kelly who was born in South Carolina. I have not found a record to determine when Charles and Philadelphia were married because marriage records in South Carolina were not considered a civil matter but were kept by local churches, if at all. They were enumerated in the 1830 census in Lancaster County, South Carolina and moved to Pickens County, Alabama around 1835. They moved to Georgia about 1841 and were enumerated in the 1850 census in Lumpkin County, Georgia with the following children; Lucinda, James Leander, Francis Marion, Parrina, Helena Elsma, Alfred Newton, John and a grandchild named Benjamin. They likely were married in the 1805-1815 timeframe and had at least 4 additional children prior to those listed in the 1850 census that had left home by 1850 but were included in the counts in the 1840 census. Philadelphia died prior to the 1860 census. The 1850 census accurately lists the State of birth of each child but all subsequent censuses, when the family was enumerated in Arkansas, listed the State of birth of every child as Georgia.

One of these older children was William Matthew Blaylock who patented 80 acres of land in 1860 in Sebastian County and lived next door to James Leander Blaylock in the 1870 census and next door to Francis Marion Blaylock in the 1880 census. One of the older girls was Mary Ann (nee Blaylock) Strickland who was living in William’s household in the 1870 census and in Francis’ household in the 1880 census. She had married Silas Stricklin in Lumpkin County, Georgia on December 20, 1846.

Charles Blaylock’s family moved from Lumpkin County, Georgia to Sebastian County, Arkansas around 1856. While he was too old to be conscripted, his sons James Leander, Alfred Newton and Francis Marion Blaylock were conscripted into the 35th Arkansas Infantry Regiment, CSA. Alfred’s twin brother John may have died prior to the war because there is no record that he was conscripted or served in any capacity on either side in the war. All three conscripted Blaylocks deserted the Confederate Army by the end of September, 1863.

William Matthew Blaylock patented 80 acres of land in 1860 in Section 15, Township 6 North, Range 31 West in Sebastian County with patent numbers 3675 and 5808. The patent number 3675 for 40 acres was cancelled leaving him with 40 acres. William’s original cabin built about 1848 was restored by the Sebastian County Historical Society in 1996. Based on this information from the historical society, William moved to Sebastian County around 1848 which was about eight years before Charles arrived with the remainder of his family. His home was used as a school and as a first aid station in the Civil War. This cabin is referred to as the Vineyard Cabin named after the family that donated it to the Sebastian County Historical Society.
