Our Blackstone DNA was submitted by my father, Robert E. Blackstone, who is now deceased. He was born in 1930 to Benjamin Joseph Blackstone and Laura Ethel Arnold. Benjamin was born in Missouri in 1872 and Laura was bornin 1894 in Gatesville Texas.
According to our DNA we are related to the Argyle Blackstone clan. During the Civil War there were documents destroyed. Our DNA takes us back to John Blackstone living and dying in Missouri. We have to jump back in time a few years to find the Argyle Blackstone relatives.....and we know by our DNA that they are our relatives.
John Blackstone lived in Tennessee and Kentucky. He moved his family to Missouri. One of his sons was William A. Blackstone who was the grandfather to Robert E. Blackstone.
