RESEARCH NOTES:

From "Some Descendants of Lieutenant William Blackburn" compiled by Annie Noble
Sims, Savannah, GA, published in Tyler's Quarterly Magazine, Vol. II:

In the Land Office at Richmond, VA, in Bk H, pg 594, it is recorded that A.D. 1755
Lord Fairfax made a Grant of land to "Arthur, George and William Blackburn of Fairfax
county, VA". The land granted them was in Frederick county, VA, "on Mulberry Run."

These three brothers at a much later date removed to what is now Washington
County, VA; see pages 619, 809 and 813 of "History of Southwest Virginia," by Lewis
Preston Summers. Scores of references in "Southwest Virginia" show that these men were
prominent in the political, religious and social life of Washington Co.

That "Arthur, George and William Blackburn" were brothers is stated in the Will of
George Blackburn, recorded August 18th, 1778 at Abingdon, Washington Co., VA in Will
Book 1, page 13.

Their relationship is also stated in the Will of Arthur Blackburn, recorded August 20th,
1782 at Abingdon, Washington Co., VA, in Will Book 1, page 82.

In both Wills two sisters are also mentioned; Margaret (Blackburn) Casey, wife of
William Casey and Mary (Blackburn) White.

Lieutenant William Blackburn of Washington Co., VA, was killed in the Battle of
King's Mountain, October 7th, 1780, see page 304 in King's Mountains and Its Heroes," by
Lyman C. Draper.

The widow of Lieutenant William Blackburn, Elizabeth (Black) Blackburn, her
brother, Capt. Joseph Black, and John Blackburn were granted letters of administration on
the estate of Lieutenant William Blackburn, Nov. 24th 1780, they together with Samuel
Newell and John Davis gave bond in the sum of eight thousand pounds, see Court Minutes of
Washington Co., Book 1, page 97, at Abingdon.

The final settlement of the estate of Lieut. William Blackburn did not take place until
Dec 20, 1796, see Will Book 2, page 105, Abingdon, VA. This settlement is very important,
because not only were Lieut. William Blackburn's daughters mentioned, but the names of their
husbands were given also.

The heirs mentioned in this final settlement were as follows:
"A daughter, Mary Blackburn, who had married Samuel Vance.
A daughter, Jean Blackburn, who had married Joseph Cusick.
A daughter, Elizabeth Blackburn, who had married John Lusk.
A daughter, Margaret Blackburn, who had married David Evans.
Two daughters, Patsey and Sally Blackburn (evidently unmarried at this time) and the widow
Mrs. Elizabeth Blackburn".

The authority for the statement that Elizabeth Blackburn, wife of Lieut. William
Blackburn was the sister of Captain Joseph Black is to be found on pages 221 and 223 of
Rev. Samuel Rutherford Houston's "Genealogy of the Houston Family", published by the Elm
Street Printing Company, Cincinnati, OH, 1882.
