The Descendants of Joseph Bledsoe and Elizabeth Miller
     These are the descendants of Joseph Bledsoe and Elizabeth Miller. On the following page you will see the outline of Mary (Fanny) Bledsoe, his sister. Just to make things "easier" for me ;) the granddaughter of Mary (Fanny) Bledsoe married the grandson of of Joseph Bledsoe. Generations 3 and 4 are the only differences between the two pages. The names with the double ** are the generations that moved to KY and this is where the duplication starts, both of these families are mine.

    
I want to thank Barbara Coffey for the Bledsoe family information, her email address is - bkcoffey@insightbb.com. If not for her, I'd still be trying to sort this all out. :)

     (the numbering on this page is set up this way because this outline is an excerpt from the George Bledsoe page under the state of Virginia. I decided to split them up in case someone does not know the Virginia information and therefore would not think to look there. I hope it doesn't make things too confusing.)

At this time my knoweldge on this family is limited to the information on this page.
