Theodora Blakeney, sally green, 7-19-2001,13:19:15
Looking for info about Theodora Blakeney b. about 1820? and married William O'Brien around Dublin. Theodora's father or grandfather was alleged to be a high ranking British Army officer. She married a Catholic (O'Brien) and was banished from the family. Their daughter was Katherine (Catherine/Kathleen) Almira Theodosia O'Brien b. 1839/41 near Dublin. Theodora and William came to America sometime after Katherine's birth, but both died soon after arriving. Relatives sent Katherine to America/Canada on her own at about age 10-12 (1850ish?)She ended up in Canada and then New York and married Seymour Green of Wayne Co., New York. Later settled in Saginaw Michigan. Does anyone possibly have any info about this family? Thanks!

Nice to see a Blakeney family homepage - keep up the good work! Would love to hear from any of the Blakeney connections from the eastern shore of Nova Scotia. -- How's the book coming? - cousin Crafty impatiently tapping toes awaiting it's arrival.

documenting Blakeney genealogy, Rocky, 9-24-2007,8:20:56
I believe that I am a descendant of the Blakeney line;
William Blakeney (b. 1715) m. Elizabeth Chambers
David Blakeney Sr. (b. 1745) m. Elizabeth (---)
Chambers Blakeney (b. c. 1773) m. Sarah Lewis
Jerusha Blakeney (b. 1804) m. Charles McCready

I would like to prove my U.E. lineage with this line.

Problem is I can find various webpages, surname forums, various printed text, but ALL of them do not seem to cite their sources. Some cite each other, but no primary documentation is ever cited.
Where is all the primary evidence? Are there any compilations with referenced evidence?
Is it all conjecture, and family lore, or, has someone found the "proof" to make these connections and documented it?
I do not live close enough to New Brunswick to sort through the archives there and read the actual documents. I have gone through what primary and secondary records the NB Archives have posted. It is frustrating seeing the amount of unsubstantiated material out there some with glaring misspellings and errors!
Please point me to where I can find the documentation that I need.

Ivy Blakeney, Don, 1-17-2008,7:6:38
