John Blackman - Private   
John was the son of John and Elizabeth Lane Blackman. He was married to Caroline Mears and Ann Bird.

The following account comes from the book A History of Marion County by W.W. Sellers:

'The whole South might be challenged to Produce a parrallel to John Blackman for unquestioned patriotism and cool courage. He volunteered in the Southern cause at the age of fifty-nine; he went into the army in Virginia, and after staying in service, was discharged on account of his age.

He knocked around the camp for three or four days, with a discharge in his pocket. In the meantime, a battle occured. Jack went back to his company, took his gun and went into the fight, was shot through the abdomen, the ball passing out at the rear-it happened not to cut any of his intestines, and Jack survived it; he lay in the hospital for two or three months, and then returned home.

Jack Blackman lived to be ninety years of age; in many respects, he was the noblest man of his day. Jack ought to have a monument erected to his memory-it is already erected in the hearts of all who knew him and knew of him.'
