Thomas BLACKERBY was born in KY in 1867. 

Both Franklin & Thomas were in Springvale Township by 1890.

Thomas & Elva were married in Logan Co. on Dec. 26, 1891.  We do know that her family came from Michigan Valley, KS, and that her father homesteaded in Section 24, but have no evidence that the two families knew each other earlier. 

The mysterious George W. BLACKERBY had children born in MO during the unaccounted for years, so it is possible that the BLACKERBY's migration path was KY>MO>O.T.


Unsolved Mysteries:

The 1900 census shows that Mary POLLARD BLACKERBY had had six children, two of whom were still living.  We know that Thomas was one of them. Was the other surviving one also in the area? What were the names of the four who had died?

Who was the Henry BLACKERBY who also homesteaded in Section 25-15N-1W?  He appears on the 1890 Directory of Homesteaders, but not on the 1900 census.  

Who was the George W. BLACKERBY who settled only a few miles away in Oklahoma County?  He appears on both the 1890 Directory of Homesteaders and the 1900 census:

1 Blackerby, George W. b: December 1844 in Kentucky d: Aft. 1900

.. +"Blackerby", Eliza A. b: February 1850 in Missouri d: Aft. 1900

......... 2 Blackerby, Fannie b: September 1870 in Missouri

......... 2 Blackerby, Thomas E. b: July 1873 in Missouri

......... 2 Blackerby, Amlet b: July 1885 in Missouri

......... 2 Blackerby, Margie b: September 1889 in Missouri
