    Madison County...Blankinship's Buried Silver

    Maybe with a little digging from someone wjho lives near here....they might be able to find Walters buried Silver......

    western NC (Madison Co).

    Sidney Blankenship m. Susan Lupar. Their children (not all proven) were:
    Walter, James Thomas, Quince, Vance, Emmaline (twin), Clementine (twin) and
    Jane.
    It has been said that Walter was an accomplished
    silversmith. They say he made his own silver coins and bullets; that he
    buried silver treasures

    I was able to track
    Robert Vance Blankinship who was from Madison County (Hot Springs, NC). I
    His parents are listed as Sidney Blankinship and Susan Jane Looper.


    Then from roots web someone had posted this:
    "
    Sidney Blankinship was my Great great-grandmothers father.
    (Emmaline Rose Blankinship) here in Alexander Co., NC
    He married Elizabeth Williams and had two daughters here.
    Then as the story went ran off with Liz Looper and went West and they never heard from him again. Emma married
    James W. Gilreath and had 11 children. Her sister never married. They all lived on the same Farm that the Williams owned."


    1850 Census, Alexander Co, NC
    Benjamin W. Blankenship 45yrs (Born Ca 1805)
    Wife, Jane 38 yrs.
    Children: James 17: Sidney 15: Tizah 13: Martha 8 and Benjamin 4

    Census records indicate Benjamin's father and mother were born in NC

    I go a great distance,while some are considering whether they will start today or tomorrow

    Sidney Blankenship lineage
    The story I heard about Great, Great Grandfather Sidney Blankenship is when he came home from the Civil War, his wife had given birth to a black baby. He sent her away. My Great Grandfather was Robert Vance Blankenship. As a youth, I spent a lot of time in Hot Springs and Madison County. I still go there at least twice a year. The family cemetery is up at Bonnie Hill, off Shut-Inn Creek. I have a letter that my Great Aunt Georgia wrote about some of the history. Sidney Blankenship raised his family in Madison County, North Carolina on Shut-In Creek.
