The following posts are gathered from genealogy inquiry posts on the web for Blansit, Blancet, Blanset and other variations of our surname.
I am seeking information about the parents of James Preston BLANSIT (b. Oct 1858 in TX). The family oral history of James Preston is that he was raised by his grandmother. Then when he was about 14 years old, his grandmother send him down the road to get some coal when the fire went out. But, he left and never came back home. He, supposedly, rode with some outlaws, i.e., Jesse James and others. James Preston BLANSIT married 16 Dec 1883 to Nancy Ella HARRINGTON (b. Dec 1863 in MS). According to the 1900 federal census, Nancy had six living children out of ten births. It is noted that her father was born in NC and her mother was born in AL. It is noted that the father of James Preston BLANSIT was born in AL. James Preston and Nancy Ella had the following children: Charles Walter BLANSIT (b 22 Dec 1886, Palo Pinto, TX - d 22 Oct 1970, Dennison, TX Railroad Hosp.) who married 15 JUL 1906 to Elizabeth A. ANDERSON (b 2 Feb 1887, Alvord, Wise Co., TX - d. Pittsburg Co., OK); Benjamin Arthur BLANSIT (b Oct 1888, TX); Nelson Henry BLANSIT (b Mar 1892, TX); James Preston BLANSIT, Jr. (b Jul 1895, OK); John Wesley BLANSIT (b Feb 1898) who had four daughters; Mary Ella BLANSIT; Fannie Ann BLANSIT (a twin); Frank BLANSIT ( (a twin).I would welcome any data regarding the ancestors or descendants of this BLANSIT family.Nancy Hughes [ firstname.lastname@example.org ]

Posted by: Don GlossingerHello Cousin,
I am also descended from Peter Blansett. You probably already know about the
book John C. Rowland: Missouri Pioneer and His Kin. There is a lot about
Blansetts in it. It does connect St. Louis with Robert Majors. I have worked
hard, but have made little progress on Peter Blansett b. ca 1792. Drop a line if
you get time.

it be the same one or an ancestor? Please let me know (or any other info that
might help me with my tracing efforts).

their family in Dekalb and Jackson County AL. Their children are Nellie, Joseph,
Elbert, Nick, Annie, Fracis Lula, cora, and Horace (all with last name Tripp)

with TB while there, as did Annie" Sarah, (sallie) was born in October 1871
in Al. her father was born in TN and her mother in AL. Any info would help.
Hi Norman! I am a descendant of John Blanscet who was born about 1807 - 1809 either in Kentucky or Jackson county Alabama. He was possibly the third son of Peter Blancet and his first wife Lucy. My John Blanscet married Catherine Conatser in Jackson county Alabama and had two children with her. Their children were Nancy Elizabeth Blanscet and Andrew Jackson Blanscet. They moved to Marion county Tennessee before 1830. I am a descendant of his son Andrew Jackson Blanscet. What I wanted to tell you is I have a history of the Blancetts (or Blanscets) that was given to me and some information on my line of the Blanscets that I'll share with you if you want it. I would very much like to have your information if you don't mind. You can contact me at email@example.com Thank you, Carlyon Sue McKinney
Hi Allen! If you will go to my website at http://groups.msn.com/MyMothersFamily and sign in using your dot net passport, and then scroll down the left side of my page and click "documents". Then click Blanscet files. Then click my file named Blancett # doc. Then scroll down until you come to Peter Blancett and Lucy____? (Peter of Peter's Pond) I think you'll find the information that you need there.
James Blancett and my gggggrandfather John Blanscet were brothers. They are thought to have both been the sons of Peter Blancett and Lucy. John married my ggggrandmother Catherine Conatser sometime in the early 1820's in Autauga county Alabama, (not Jackson county as I thought when I wrote that message.) John and Catherine moved to Jackson county AL after they married. Their three, (not two), children were born in Jackson county.
According to the file that I have Elizabeth was living with a Abraham Knertzer (Conatser) when she married James Blancett. The writer of this file thought she was probably his sister. I don't. I think she and my Catherine were his nieces. I think they were sisters and were the daughters of John Conatser and Nancy Howard. This John Conatser was born in 1774 in Rowan county NC and died before 1837 in Davie county NC. He was the oldest son of Johannes Nicholas Conatser and his first wife Catherine Hainline and was a older half brother to the afore mentioned Abraham Conatser. He married Nancy Howard about 1790 in Rowan county NC. She was born before 1775 in Rowan county NC and died before 1830 in Davie county NC.
The reason that I think this is the fact that no one has ever found any record of Johannes Nicholas Conatser ever having a daughter named Catherine. Also if you will, look in my Conatser files on that same website and click on my file named GENERATI.txt and scroll down to Generation Five, you will find that this John Conatser had a daughter named Caty, born about 1802, and another daughter named Elizabeth, born about 1804. This seems to me to be the most likely case. I believe they were sisters and they married two brothers.
I don't think my files say what happened to Elizabeth, though. Do you know what happened to James and Elizabeth? Could they have moved to Arkansas with my family?
