The Family Bible with records were presented to John P. and Sallie Blackwell by their "affectionate mother Mrs. Mary A. Blackwell Jan 23, 1888". (as written in the Family Bible-see notes on grandson Benjamin Thomas Blackwell, son of John Pomphrette Blackwell, Jr.)
These records were added to by B. T. Blackwell [Benjamin Thomas Blackwell], copied and given to Ruth Coleman Garrett Adkins and given to this researcher, L. Bolling Hagen, husband to Ruth's daughter, Mary Lou Adkins Hagen in Dec 1998. Updated to Hagen Genealogy Jan. 1999
The death certificate of her son, Robert Marshall Blackwell, indicates that his mother, Mary Ann Webb, was born in Alamance Co., NC.
