Re: James Blanding - 1910 census
- Keith ...
Yes, James C. Blanding died in 1929. His widow applied for pension
benefits in Nov. 1929 and again in 1934. I have a copy of the
document, and will request copies of all related documents, including
his Civil War service records, from the National Archives. Copies of
the required forms are on the way to me.
- I've found other miscue's with DB himself. Always
have to check data and sources. I ordered newspapers
from Gardner and Livingston from 1894-1912 figuring
that Yellowstone was a big deal then and maybe James
Blanding would be featured somewhere as he was cutting
in the original roads to the new National Park. Maybe
a teenager named Don Blanding will be standing/sitting
next to him. We'll see.....tj

This James B.

is not our James.
On the other hand, with all the errors I've been

I could accept
our James being in both Jardine School District, Park

as well as in Gardiner.
I've also discovered a major discrepancy in James
The pension document of 1890 shows James with 3 years'
1862 - July 1865, in Company H, 41st Wisconsin.
However, last night
I printed out the regiment's history and part of the
soldiers, including James C. Blanding of Lancaster,
WI. The regiment
was not even formed until May 1864 and mustered out in
1864. It was the last of three 100-day regiments from

I checked the 1910 census again. The James Blanding in Gardiner is a
49-year-old widower whose parents were born in Missouri and
Pennsylvania. No others in his household.
Our James C. Blanding is listed in the Jardine school District, Park
County, and by 1910 was about 62 years old. His wife Mary C. is also
listed, with years of marriage shown as 15. Certainly, if James and
mary were married in the area, an 1894 or 1895 newspaper might yield a
clue. I think the earliest that DB went to Yellowstone was the summer
of 1909, about age 15.
