      ==================b



      Jeremiah Blanton, per DNA evidence, was NOT son of Reuben Blanton. His father was Archie or Archer Blanton

      Until evidence surfaced in the Blanton DNA project, many people believed that Jeremiah Blanton was the son of William Blanton. Others thought he was the son of Reuben Blanton. However, after DNA testing of desc. of William Blanton, Abraham Womack, and Jeremiah Blanton and after some additional records were uncovered pertaining to Archee Blanton it was ascertained that Jeremiah Blanton was the son of Archee Blanton , Have you examined the results of the Blanton DNA study? DNA studies have proved that Jeremiah Blanton was not son of William Blanton. Jeremiah Blanton was the son of Archie or Archer Blanton, whose parents were Abraham Womack and Ann aka Nancy Blanton. They were mentioned in the bastardy court records of Amelia Co., VA. There's much information about the Womack-Blanton's that can be found on the internet. Let me refer you to http://rebgen.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default - using your search engine to find Blanton just keep paging down for information. Another webpage can be found at http://www.womacknet.com/sources/wgv4n1.html. Also, there is discussion about the matter at in the Blanton and Womack surname pages found at genforum.com. Bottom line, Jack Womack, desc. of Abraham Womack was tested. Keith Blanton, desc. of Thomas Jefferson Blanton, who was the son of Josiah and grandson Jeremiah Blanton was tested as well as James Blanton, desc. of Julia Blanton (dau of Josiah) and her husband Benj. F. Blanton and the results showed that the REMINISCENCES of CHRISTENBERRY LEE 1823 - 1895 were right - that Jeremiah's father was Archie or Archer Blanton, the "bastard" child of Ann Blanton and Abraham Womack discussed in Amelia Co., VA bastardy court record. For additional or more specific information I refer you to Robert Stafford, -- just go to genform.com, look at both the Blanton and Womack surname pages and read all the information there about discredited Blanton genealogies, the DNA project, etc. You can write Bob a note via genforum or if you have problems using genforum, email me privately at delins1@verizon.net and I'll give you Bob's email address. Please do let me hear from you. Thanks. There are a lot of family trees "out there" naming Jeremiah as son of William or as son of Reuben. It has been impossible to get rid of them; but, it would be helpful if you were to review the available evidence found on the internet and change to records to show that Jeremiah Blanton is the son of Archee and part of the Blanton family group that has become known as the Womack -Blanton's.
