    Notes 
    • Mary Frances Fisher Smith has in her notes a copy of an affidavit by Richard Eugene Blackburn. She writes that deposition was signed on April 23, 1963, and witnessed by Paul V. Draughn and H. J. Love. She said that all efforts to locate the original deposition have been in vain. It is not known which of the families he mentioned were trying to verify information, or for what purpose the deposition was prepared.

      He stated that his father was Irvin Armstrong Blackburn, son of Ferdinand Boon Blackburn and Sarah Elizabeth Tyner, and that his mother was Amanda Jane McGrew was the daughter of William McGrew and Dorinda Lott. William McGrew was born in Covington Co, Mississippi about 1815. He was the son of John (Jack) McGrew.

      Later, he states that "Ferdinand's father was Gabriel Blackburn, a veteran of the War of 1812, who is buried on his old home place on Highway 13, near Columbia, Mississippi. This place is now owned by a Mr. Polk, an electrician."
