Group Description

Join us in our Blain family research. After serving as a private in the Revolutionary War, Alam Blain married Catherine Read in Tewksbury Township, Hunterdon Co., NJ. They bore 14 children, eleven of which (Joseph, Catherine, John, William, Luke, Mary, George, Jacob, Elizabeth, Anna, Abraham, Alam (Elam)) survived and produced thousands of offspring. We suspect Alam had two brothers, Benjamin and John, and that their father was Joseph Blain.



Alam and Catherine moved from NJ to Luzerne Co., PA, on to Muskingum Co., OH and finally to Delaware Co., OH. His offspring moved to Paulding Co., OH, and surrounding areas including Illinios, Wisconsin, Michigan, Canada and throughout the United States.



Surnames include Read, Cockrell, Cockerill, Miller, Stanley, Ferguson, Craven, Dixon, Bennet, Eads and others.
