John Blackburn (son of William Blackburn and Jenny Maynard, born 1812-1816 in Virginia) had at least 25 children and several wives. The known wives are LYDIA BLANKENSHIP, dau. of William Blankenship and Celia Bishop, married to John in Pike Co., on October 11, 1834), Elizabeth Whitt (married John in Pike Co., KY on Sept. 15, 1867), Martha Blankenship, and Betty Gooslin.
