Blackburn Cemetery

Several members of my family are buried at Blackburn Cemetery in Saline County, Missouri (County Road 432, GPS coordinates: N 39.11778, W 93.48 – for location assistance, refer to the maps below).  Rev. Thomas White Hancock and his first wife, Jacintha Ann (Pollard) Hancock are my paternal 3rd g-grandparents.  At least three of their offspring (my 2nd g-grand aunts and uncle) are buried in Blackburn along with their parents.  My 2nd g-grandmother, Elizabeth Minor (Hancock) Gunnell (1850-1928) is buried at Evergreen Cemetery in Colorado Springs, Colorado.  I have the names of Thomas White Hancock‘s parents from handwritten notes which Thomas wrote on the back of his marriage certificate with Jacintha Ann.  They are John Hancock (1796-1837) and Elizabeth White (1802- ).  Elizabeth married a man by the name of Green after John‘s death.  I know that John Hancock was born in Woodford County, Kentucky, where his family must have been early settlers.  Unfortunately, I have been unable to trace this line further back.
