Moses B Blakeman II was born Feb 02, 1824 in Big Sandy, Kentucky son of Moses I and Betty Elizabeth. Moses married Elizabeth Betty Butler on Aug 06 1852 in Piketon, Pike County, Ohio. They had 10 known children from 1852 to 1873. We have a land purchase for a M Blakeman n Jackson County but no proof that it was for our Moses but most likely.

There are 2 marriage dates for Moses and Elizabeth. Still trying to figure out which is correct.

Here are the 1860, 1870, and 1880 Census.

Moses B Blakeman II moved with family to Piketon in 1894. Moses died on Sept 20, 1898 in Piketon, Pike County, Ohio. Where his son Moses III cared for his mother Elizabeth until her death in 1911. He then moved to Chilicothe and lived out the rest of his life except for the last couple days where he lived with his sister in Piketon. Moses II is buried with his wife Elizabeth in Mound Cemetery.
