Our family came to Illinois from Findley Ohio some time during and after the Civil war.

John BLACKFORD , made a Mason in Findley OH in May 1857 and admitted to the Bar by the Supreme Court of Illinois in June 1857. Married Susan TAYLOR of Decatur, Illinois around 1870.

Aaron, Albert, Jason and John Blackford were brothers and I have some letters written by Albert during the war. Interesting reading sometimes.

More recently our family, my grandfather Fred R. BLACKFORD and my father, Robert Rea BLACKFORD lived in Charleston, Illinois from around 1892.
