  • BLANKENSHIPS ON THE WALL

    Posted on 1/2/18 - by Harvest Blankenship Kloster hkloster@earthlink.net
    I am the daughter of Major Leroy I. Blankenship, KIA 1 Apr 69. Family history says that all Blankenships in the United States are descended from one common ancestor who immigrated from England to Virginia as an indentured servant in the early 1600's. As such, all 15 men on the Wall with the surname Blankenship are distant cousins. If you knew Dencil or are related to him, you are welcome to contact me.
