Surnames being researched and regions.

I am presently trying to find the parents of Zachariah Hemby, born in N.C.about 1814. He is shown in the 1850 census for Scott County, Ark.,age 36, with wife Emily age 23, and children; Mary, age 3 and Matilda, age 1. Zachariah is shown as being born in N.C., Emily in Ga. and the children in Ark.

Blankenship: Georgia, Alabama, Oklahoma. Research Period: Pre 1860. I am trying to find the spouse of Nancy Blankenship and
father of William H., Eli, Elishu, Daniel H. and Benjamin F.
Blakenship. They are present in the 1860 census for Henry Co.,
Alabama. Nancy married William Peebles in Henry Co. in 1853.
William H., Eli, Elishu and Daniel H. Blankenship fought in
the Civil war for Alabama and the Confederacy. I suspect that
the father Blankenship died in Alabama in the 1848-1853 time
frame as The youngest child, Benjamin, was born in Alabama in
1849. The other children were born in Georgia.

Daniel: North and South Carolina, North Georgia, Arkansas. Pre 1830. Seeking the parents of Josiah Daniel, born abt 1809 in
