- on the 1870 Census of Jackson county Ala there is a Joseph Blancett living in
Bellefonte (household 48-49) and his wife, Arinda. I suspect that Arinda is
Orinda Seay, sister of Richard M. Seay. In his personal journal he states
that he has a sister named Orinda whom he call Rinda. She was born in 1847
in Tennessee and her mother was Sarah, first married to Hiram Henegar and
second to John Seay, Orinda's Father. Hope to hear from a decendant of
Arinda and Joseph.
