I am trying to prove that William Bledsoe (born about 1824 in Indiana; died about 1856 in Martin County, Indiana), who was married about 1842 to Louisa ?Walker?, was the father of Henry Bledsoe (or Bledsaw), who was born about 1846 and died 2 June 1917. Henry married Eliza A. Hitt on 27 September 1868 and they had a son, Charles Bledsoe (born 1871).
All the records I have found so far have been in Perry or Center townships in Marion County, Indiana. Apparently the family went to Martin County, Indiana, before 1824.
