    Sons of the American Revolution Membership Applications, 1889-1970
    Application of Oliver Max Gardner, born 22 Mar 1882
    Traces ancestry  through Burwell Blanton, reported as son of George and Susannah
    Ancestor George Blanton born 1743 died 1800, wife Susannah (birth and death unknown)
    "His father, George Blanton, moved to North Carolina from Virginia and in his early life was a Justice of the Peace and the colonial records give evidence of his service to the State 1765-1775.  He was one of the petitioners to establish the South Carolina Line and did service for the King's Most Excellent Majesty."

    Note that according to the family lists above, Susannah was not the mother of Burwell (Burrell) Blanton, but his mother was Elvira Lee.  Burwell's date of birth about 1862, is about a year after the marriage of George Blanton to his first wife Elvira Lee.  Note that George married Susannah Blanton in 1770, following the death of Elvira Lee.
