Collaborative genealogical research effort for the Blains of Delaware County, OH, and related
families. The family migrated west from Hunterdon Co., New Jersey, thru Luzerne Co., and
surrounding areas of Pennsylvania, on to Muskingum Co., OH and Zanesville (and surrounding
areas), to Harlem and Brown Township, Delaware Co., Emerald Township, Paulding Co., OH, and
on to Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Wisconsin, Canada, and elsewhere.
Alam Blain, revolutionary war soldier, and probable brother of Benjamin and John Blain, married
Catherine Reed in Hunterdon Co., NJ. They had 14 children, eleven surviving, in the following 25
years -- Elizabeth, Joseph, Mary (Polly), Jacob, Anna, Catherine, John, William, Luke, George,
Abraham and Elam (the names of the children are undocumented at this time). The children were
born from New Jersey to Pennsylvania. Other distinguished family members include Elem J.
Blain, Justice of the Peace of Harlem Township, Solomon and Elem J. Blain Jr., civil war soldiers.
Edward Blain, child of Sarah Cockrell who changed his name to Blain. Joseph Blain who
preserved and passed on his family Bible. All are represented here. We hope to learn more about
the many offspring of Alam and Catherine, and to eventually learn of Alam's parents.
Sirnames include BLAIN(E) BLANE, COCKRELL, REED, FERGUSON, STANLEY, BENNET,
CRAVEN, DIXON, COLE, MILLER, PACE, and many more.
