Blackmon was born in 1819 in Sequatchie Valley Tennessee. This is from an article from the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram 1932. He died on 2-17-33. On your site for Jesse B. Shirley you have Blackmon Ligon Shirley(dob 6-15-29). Is it possible that Black Ligon Shirley is a younger brother? Civil war records show a Black L. Shirley, PVT E Co 11th Cav Bn(CSA)...also Blackmon L. Shirley PVT F Cp 5th INF(union). Family history has his middle name as Filander but pronounced Lander. I can update some of the information I sent earlier.
Blackmon married Mary Francis Worthington (1832-1869)
Sarah (Sadie) Jane b 1846 d2-28-1942 m William H. Fitts +
Margaret Elizabeth m James Aaron Freiley (my line)
Katherine (Kitty) m William Thomas Fitts +
Hester Ann died as a minor
Jesse Carrol b 1-15-1869 m Anna Lu Vernon
James b 1869 (possible Mary died in childbirth)
Blackmon m Cassandre (Cassie) Dilbeck Fitts (widow)+ (before 1880)
Filander (Fie) Lee m Edith Holeman
2 infant sons died
Blackmon m Annie Moore (widow) (@1907)
(Annie Moore had five children most living in in Prescott Arkansas)
Gladys L. b8-5-1911 m W. W. Waters
+William H. Fitts & William Thomas Fitts, Cassie's child?
When I can get more information I'll snail-mail copies of Blackmon's obit and ft-w star article.
