Robert was first married to Margaret Gordon then to Margaret Campbell. His son, Alexander was b. 1780 in Pa. Later when Alexander was standing on his land in Montgomery Co., Indiana he declared it reminded him of his beloved Ball'hinch.

red mail Blakely/Delacherois
I am researching the family of BLAKELY /DELACHEROIS. I would be interested to hear from anyone with any information.
Delacherois BLAKELY
Researching into my Great Great Great Grandfather Delacherois Blakely's family from Lower Ballykine, Ballynahinch. His daughter Dorothy was my Great Great Grandmother born ca 1833 and married my Great Great Grandfather, the miller John Lewis (son of Wm Lewis a labourer) at the Wayside Mill in Magheraknock (where they may have been cohibiting) on 7 July 1854 at Lisburn Registry Office. Their son John, my Great Grandfather, was born 3 July 1864 in Annahilt. I would like to know if there are any other siblings in his family or that of the previous generation. Delacherois Blakely also had a son of the same name and his daughter died and is buried in Ballynahinch First Presbyterian Churchyard. He also had another daughter and made a will in 1914, still in Lower Ballykine, which is where his other brothers, John and William also lived. Other possible brothers of Delacherois Jnr were David of Magheradrool, Joseph of Ballymacarn North and perhaps a cousin Wm of Lisburn St, Ballynahinch. As many of the Blakelys sons in Co Down were given their mother's surnames as their Christian/first names, it is highly probably that his mother was surnamed de la Cherois and descended from the French Huguenot family of Nicholas de la Cherois of Lisburn (and later descendents from Donaghdee). Any information on the Blakely, Lewis or de la Cherois family would be grately appreciated. Thanks!
