I worked on this family back in 1960's. My late husband is a gr.gr.gr.son of Adoniram Baker and Nancy Sandlin, d/o Lewis & Sarah Kennedy. I have their picts and several others.

The story on Blankenship was started some yeaars ago before researchers were very good. They said because Sarah signed her name with Sarah B. Sandlin it meant she was a Blankenship. I dont think so. They named their son Kennedy and when the death record surfaced she was a Kennedy. I believe they were in Wilkes NC for a while from York CO SC.
One other major issue is with James Sandlin's wife, Zilphy Baker. Her grandparents are John Renta Baker & Susanna ROWLAND. THERE IS NO SUCH PERSON as Elizabeth Terrill. Old Obadiah Terrill was a club-footed bachelor. These ROWLANDS ARE CONNECTED with the BAKERS early...John's father was Andrew and grandfather was living with
Thomas Rowland in the area. John Baker & Susanna Rowlands marriage bond is signed by Charles Roowland in Wilkes CO N.C.

Zilphy and James Sandlin are buried right next to Robert Julius Bob Baker at Cortland Cemetery in Owsley CO Ky.

Dotti...first of all, John Renta Baker was the grandfather of Boston Bob. Boston's father is Julius Bob Baker.

There is no Elizabeth Terrill and John was legally married only one time in his life. She was
Susanna Rowland.

These are facts that can not be changed or altered as no one has any evidence to the other stuff that has floated around without proof for years.All from what one person said they THOUGHT but wasnt sure of.

The marriage bond exists and John never married again. He came to Clay out of Madison and his wife stayed in Madison with her daughter, Igha, when they were getting old.
