a. Note:   1782, Dale Parrish, Chesterfield Co., VA,
 "Will of James Atkinson of Dale Parish, 26 cot. 1782, mentions a John Blankenship (poss. born 1745) who will receive a part of the estate upon Atkinson's death. This John must be the son of Ralph who was the son of Ralph and Martha Blankinship. There also is mention of a Joseph Blankenship who is to be given a portion of the fruit of the orchard of Atkinson for his entire lifetime. This Joseph must be Joseph, son of Ralph who was the son of Ralph and Martha. It looks like this Joseph must have married into the Atkinson family line. The witness on this will is Matthew Blankenship (b. 1748), another of the several sons of Ralph Blankenship who was the son of Ralph and Martha Blankinship."
