  • Notes 
    • Susannah was born in Green County, Ohio, and moved to Danville, Illinois in 1821. She married William Blakeney on November 25, 1834, and they had twelve children, eight of whom survived. They are Sarah (McCorkle), T.W. Blakeney, Susannah (Brooks), Nancy (Stevens), Rachael (Ellis), Mary (Royse), Martha (Field). They liked to smoke pipes made of clay on their back porch. One of the stories told to the grandchildren was of the Indians who came to visit their home. The Indians liked fire water (whiskey) and fly (raisin) bread. If they saw the Indians coming, they would go under their trap door in the house and hide after putting bread or whiskey out until the footsteps departed.
