Are you a descendant of Capt. John Blakeney, Irish immigrant to South Carolina and Revolutionary War captain?  This blog is intended to be a place for descentants, or plain old researchers, to share research, theories, and information.  The idea began a couple of years ago, in PDF form, but hopefully this format will be a little more informal and interactive.

I hope you will not only decide to follow the posts here, but contribute as well.  I hope to encourage everyone out there who is researching Capt. John and his family, to put aside all of those incorrect, undocumented online family trees, and visit the archives in South Carolina to see if we can uncover something new.
