Newsletter for the interchange of genealogical data and history of the Blassingame (and variant spellings) families who settled in Virginia in the 1600s. Some settled in Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, and South Carolina in the 1700s. Some focus is on (but not limited to) descendants of Thomas Blassingame (d. 1859) of South Carolina, the son of John and Rachel McElroy Blassingame. This Thomas married Nancy Easley (1776-1810), the daughter of Robert and Mary Allen Easley. Other early progenitors include John Blassingame (1769-1823) and his wife Elizabeth Smith Easley (b. 1774) of South Carolina; Thomas Blasingame and his wife Frances McIllroy, the daughter of James McIlroy; Robert Blasingame and his wife Molly; and Phillip Blassingame who lived in Snowy Creek, Henry County, Virginia in 1778. During the 1800s, Blassingames moved to Alabama, Arkansas, California, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, Tennessee, and Texas. Later descendants and relatives also lived in Arizona, Florida, Idaho, the Indian Territory, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Utah, Washington, Washington D.C., Wyoming, and elsewhere. Some have American Indian bloodlines, especially of the Choctaw and Chickasaw Nations. Some mention is made of slaves' names. Information is transcribed from cemetery inscriptions, census records, correspondence, marriage records, obituaries, shared research, voter registrations, wedding announcements, and other sources. It includes births, marriages, deaths, and other vital information from ca. 1600 to the present.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.


Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

Thank you!

We will use this information to improve our records.
