Moses Blakeman I, was born Moses Blackman on Mar 10, 1781 in Virginia. His name changed to Blakeman later in his life. We are still searching for information about his parents. Moses married Betty Elizabeth King on Oct 22, 1818 in Grainger County, Tennessee. We have Moses in the War of 1812, he was a Private. We have Moses buying land, 80.63 acre, on Aug 8, 1837 in Vinton County, Ohio. We have not found a sale or will on land but later Betty bought land in same area.
Here are the 1840 and 1850 Census for Moses and Betty where they moved from Porter Twnsp, Scioto County, Ohio to Hamilton Twnsp, Jackson County Ohio.
We have Moses passing away around 1850-1853, no records or gravestone for him. We believe he died in Jackson County. Betty, his wife, passed away in 1865 in Jackson County. We are part of his son Moses II and have more info on him.
