Sorry to have just found your blog. The Blackard and Trousdale families are intertwined in Gallatin and White Co.'s in Illinois. Between Shawneetown and Omaha, Illinois you will find many Blackard and Trousdale graves.
Thanks for all of the DNA research updates!!!

Not sure if anyone can help with my dna mystery. My Dad is an Allen and we can trace back to the early 1800s with the Allen line. When I had my Dad's DNA tested to 111 markers he matches 2 Blackards. Had never heard that name in our genealogy. Any possible stories anyone has heard through the years regarding the Allen/Blackard connection ?
