Manning/Dunn Hyde County NC Genealogy

East Carolina Genealogy and more!

It has been said that James Matthias Blake and Captain William Henry Blake both came from Illinois.

Who knows if this is true or not. Could they be brothers? If someone knows please share the wealth!  Maybe they stayed in Hyde County at the end of the War of Northern Agression - who knows...

then there was a John Blake who married a girl named Aquilla who was 25 years younger. and then had 9 children. Those Hyde County men and their younger women - wow! 

My own Greatgrandfather John Edward Dunn had 4 children with a Matilda Jane Morris. At 56 he married my Greatgrandmother Margaret Minerva Winfield who was 35 years younger. They had 14 more children!
