Blankenship--Hodges--Brown House

Hi. My wife and I just purchased this home in hope of restoring it to its former glory. If anyone has any original pictures of the the home that would aid in the restoration we would appreciate it if we could have a copy.

Blankenship--Hodges--Brown House
Posted May 19, 2011, by Cynthia Boyd Farley (antqfreek [at] aol [dot] com)

I'm doing family history research & discovered the "Blankenship--Hodges--Brown House" in Paragon, Ind. My maternal grandmother was Hope Blankenship, youngest sister of Cordelia, Ruth & Lois. My mom & I visited Paragon in 1994 to bury grandma's ashes in the family cemetery there & stayed with my 2nd cousin, Milicent Duckworth (Lois Blankenship Duckworth's daughter)--I think we were directly across the street from the house listed above. Is it still owned by a Blankenship? My mother & I are putting together a family album that starts with photos of Harriet Milicent Sterling & Mr. Benedict--their daughter, Minnie Enola married Perry Magnus Blankenship, Jr., then they had my grandma Hope in 1900. If you have info going farther back than Perry Magnus Blankenship, Sr., I'd love to see it. Also, do you have a picture of the house listed above? I want to compare it with the family photos that I have.

Thanks for any info you may have, Cynthia
