Hi I put this out as some other Blankenships might be interested.

well, we are definately related...hahah...
>From what we can figure...(nothing really definate)...Spicey and William
were brother and sister.....(this came from an obit for one of William's
sisters) and both were children of Hugh McCowan and Spicey Blankenship. I
don't have information on Hugh's and Spiceys parents as of yet...
Hugh was married several (4) times...His children by Spicey, include
Spicey, William, Mitchell, John, Mary Ann, Lucinda, Lindsay, and Nancy.
Spicey, who married William "Buck" Blanenship, was born abt 1814. she was
married on 27 Oct 1836 in Pike Co KY.
They had 11 children:
Pricey, Milly, Mitchell, Lucinda, Vina, Elizabeth, Spencer, Jemima, Candice,
Rissy and Christina. (these two possibly the same one).
does this coincide with what you have?
Pricey Blankenship married James C. Jones...
I have attached a file on decendants of Hugh McCown...This would be all I
have on him....
Hope this helps....
