Big heads are rolling. I think I'd have been a Jacobite. We founded Catholicism in Maryland, as it turns out. You probably understand the GREAT SIN in having a religion block our records for political and economic gains. Dad was Catholic by the 50s, after serving as a corpman, during the Korean War. Gregorian music soothes PTSD and other stress-related problems common around the Beltway. It's purpose was to marry Eastern and Western philosophies. But we were taxed out the wazoo!
I'm 2.5 of 3 raised at Sacred Heart (Gaga's franchise) in Maryland after returning from the Midwest, having intentionally cured our melanin / Vitamin D deficiencies..... *ahem*
but it was St. John's that (grand) knighted him in New Bern, North Carolina in 1999. Before that, we were not recognized in the Levittown social experiment we integrated. (EYEROLLs until my eyes pop out)
@thygeekgoddess if you're not following @Twitter right now, cinders and planks are flying all over the place! oy-vey and ufta!
A hard head makes a soft tuchos!
Thanks for the HIStory,
I'm interested in critiques as I work out my HERstory.
(wink, wink, nudge, nudge)
BTW, even our Mennonites, most of our marriage certs have brides at least 19 years old and alt-facts have people marked "deceased" when they merely removed to another territory. Men also lied about their age in order to save their lands, or enlist in the military.
Cowboys were commonly used as the first medics, during the American Revolution and prior, as it turns out.
We go back to House of Kent. and Grant of Ballindalloch and Ballimore
....and founded New England.
So, you're quasi-illiterate gaslighter was the FIRST in your family to serve?
edit later, maybe

SHOW YOUR WORK!
OK, OK.... Good Grief
As it turns out, we'd been fighting RW Tories and Dixicrats on BOTH sides of the pond at the same time.
My dearest cheaters, gaslighters and bigots.
this isn't a game of "Finders Keepers"
(btw, I'm a geek, NOT an end user!)
PMW I've been giving my best effort, but object impermanence is as rampant as opioid addiction.
(I'll flesh this out later.... exhausted)
This came around about the same time as George Carlin's rant. "stuff"....sheesh
Kinda funny what "AF" stands for THESE days, huh?
I wonder what part of "NEVER" this world doesn't understand?
Don't panic, CALL A BLACKWELL!
My favorite bird. "Lima-Lima THREE THREE"!!"
I wanted to gut the gear (except for the radios and V-Sat), and paint it like
the Partridge Family Lego bus.
OF COURSE, I wanted to fly it!
KNOWING that, the gaslighters who couldn't retain talent, decided to put me in Nav-Comm C-school and THEN tell me that locked me as a landlubber, for the rest of my Naval career.
E4 paid 10k/year where the same private sector gig had a 40/hour market value...which was what Texas offered before I got my degree!
(so my market value would stay nice and LOW where jerks like it)
before I left, honorably discharged, it was clear they were trying to feed female Trons and ground crew into geisha and whores. The Tailhook scandal took place 6 months after I was gone. As gaslighting goes....morons suck at IT fiercely.
and no family is complete without one of these!

It'd been building for awhile
Dad and my brother gave that same advice when I left Levittown.
"Don't cause an international incident!"
at 18 yrs old, my flight was already delayed. I had no idea a kid could divorce their parents!
Dad wouldn't divorce his 2nd wife, soooo
I went to PG Community College, NOT LOYOLA, thanks to the S&L, and all the Reaganomic crap that pushed us out of our homes. We were taxed so high, Dad was paying to work at Ft. Meade. Those Levittown social experiments were not equalizers, they neutralized professional, upper-middle class families! Gerrymandering had my siblings bused from one Levittown jr. high to the other, just when they were making friends.
Our house had our own DEFCON status. The neighborhood was built on an old tobacco farm in Bowie, MD. My folks were Hidden Figures and somehow, I got deleted completely! Born 100 yr anniversary of Juneteenth. Father's Day. SOME people noticed.
not in a good way

Glasgow City Crest, for Provosts of Glasgow
Submitted by 1_becky13
Description From: https://glasgow.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=2998 Here is the bird that never flew Here is the tree that never grew Here is the bell that never rang Here is the fish that never swam. The City of Glasgow had no single official armorial bearings until the 19 th century. There were at least three official seals in use and a patent was granted by the Lord Lyon in 1866. The emblems had been used in various forms and can be traced back to the seals of the Bishop of Glasgow. The fish was the first to appear, on the seal of Bishop William Wyschard in 1270, to be joined by the bird in 1271, on the seal of Bishop Robert Wyschard. On a later seal of the prelate the tree, or at least a branch, is shown along with the fish and bird. The bell first appears in 1321 on the privy seal of the Chapter of Glasgow. The first seal on which all the emblems are represented together is that of the Chapter of Glasgow used from 1488-1540, but it was not until 1647 that they appeared in something like their present combination on a seal. There were several subsequent variations, the latest being in April 1996, when the present Lord Lyon granted a patent to the city following Local Government reorganisation.
He's a bit removed, but this name cracked me up.
He's a bit removed, but this name cracked me up.
Mungo Nutter Campbell, of Belvidere, and afterwards of Ballimore, Dean of Guild 1823, Provost 1824, born circa 1785, died 1862. (13) He was son of Alexander Campbell of Dallingburn, Collector of Customs at Port Glasgow. Collector Campbell was a cousin of John Campbell senior, to begin, and married his sister Elizabeth. Mungo Nutter Campbell, their son, married (as we have seen), first, his first cousin, Helen, daughter of his uncle and partner, John Campbell senior; second, a sister of his brother-in-law, Possil's wife, viz., Amelia MacLachlan, who was a daughter of Donald MacLachlan of MacLachlan, and Susanna Campbell of Park, and was, therefore, like her sister, Harriet, her husband's first cousin once removed. So that Mungo Nutter, besides being John Campbell senior's partner, was his nephew, and his cousin's son, and his son-in-law, and his niece's son-in-law, and his son's brother-in-law, which is abusing the liberty of the subject. To make some amends, his godfathers and godmothers (or some one for them) had equipped him at starting with kenspeckle agnomen, drawn from Miss Nutter, the wife of Uncle Mungo of Kailzie.
(13) Ballimore (who was a strong Tory), for some reason or other, at one keenly contested election for Argyll, refused to take part with either side. They said then he should have been called Mungo Neuter.

But Hogwarts can't help a new player setup a page without being COMPLETE ASSHOLES?!
I said they were being ABUSIVE, not RACIST...because they could NOT explain how to get a new player started who happens to have REAL SCOTTISH ANCESTRY!
Cheating nerds deleted the conversation, but all I needed them to do was help me setup my real world BACKGROUND information BEFORE role playing. I think one of them even said they'd been in OPENSIM where we have Hogwarts themed regions, or used to.
They were having a very interesting conversation about REAL issues involving childhood grief, orphans, etc... but
REFUSED to help ME set up and get started.
They have a FAKE "House of BLACKWELL" family tree borking up my BOOLEAN with....but REAL legacies who built the grids can't join in?
I'd looked at other pages focused on real Scottish history which I've been trying to put together for DECADES.
When I showed the character I wanted to play, IMMEDIATELY responded with .. I don't give a MONKEY'S....blah blah blah..
Then deleted the entire conversation and blocked me. I've never seen WORSE mods or customer support. THAT's why real girls won't play with you guys! And that's why you guys SUCK to work with IRL. You can't separate your role playing from the REAL WORLD.

Customer Service FAIL
When I shared this picture and said I wanted to play her, THEY IMMEDIATELY shot back a "monkey" remark that they didn't care WHO I WAS. Those were just facts, I wasn't bragging.
Seriously, the ego was off the charts.
They were talking about "Arcadians".......smdh... That's how they treat a real one?
Gamifying Education is all we did after coming to help cure The actual PLAGUE!
But some people won't be educated.

So they fed their, uh... "first lady" his Dad's book and REFUSE to Apologize to the Obama family for their outrageous LIES about his citizenship.
OH, and they were lying about ours as well. Where we thought Irish, we were Scottish
The Brittish and the German were likely on Dad's side.
I was being paper-shredded by the VA's fascist "perception is reality" crap and using an outdated CALVINIST "GASLIGHTING" method PROVEN to be not just mental cruelty, but INSANELY evil.
If we are not blood related to the first medical doctors, we're the military doctors and engineers predating the Continental Congress.
Oh.. and there are much cooler people to call Grandad than a president.
I figured it likely we tracked back to President Grant. We have this Uncle Grandad mess where Father and Son passed in the same year.
There was definitely more to being "Because you're a BLACKWELL, dammit", building on a Roman Catholic foundation.
I'd disproved Keynes a few times before I met Big George out in post-1984 Chicago.
I found out I got fired from the Archdiocese of Milwaukee because they mistook me for Spike Lee's "NOLA" character.
So, we're back to A$$, Ga$$ or Gra$$, Nobody rides for free, while we're waking up to a world without my favorite teachers.
Law of something or other is,
You gotta pay your dues before you can sing the blues.
When I asked why they wouldn't embrace wind turbines and other emerging technologies,
The excuse was.. "Donald Trump ......"
anyway, now after all that violence and hate, they had the nerve to
have their first woman of the poser
plagiarize "Word is my Bond?"
House Gop and trumps administration grade
F - - - - - - - - - - - -
Emphasis... FUCK YOU, PAY ME
GamerGate recovery from JOB HOARDERS and Calvinist pigs. (not bacon)
Leading from behind is now... again... "MOVE, Bitch, get out my way!"
Wooo-Wheeee.. all those broken rules and a new dating website trolling for
that app better make it REALLY CLEAR
there can be NO TOLERANCE for ambulance-chasing
STOLEN VALOR... already my friend dumped a guy claiming to be in the Army.
...he said some crap that put up my red flag....
I told her to have him show her his military ID and blah blah military blah blahs....
and see what happens.
she's good after the storm. she finally checked in..
So.. Peter Tosh was murdered today...
The towers fell while we were troubleshooting that Kennedy crash in 1999
and I played Air Traffic controller with a track star from High School who turns out to be my RL cousin.
I miss her Aunt... FIERCELY.
All this mess over TWO MINUTES response time since that bobble-head fucked up a plan BECAUSE it was WORKING OUT AS DESIGNED!
So.. I'm just finding out we are North Carolina Blackwells...
damned right it matters.. I was likely related to the cutest kids at school!
Also, the Grants on both sides are the family weren't BLOOD RELATED, NOR were our brides marrying under the age of 19...more or less thanks to genealogy's ALTERNATE FACTS and DELAYED BIRTHS
Your busted bitches...
....... I'm already drained....... not editing..... scroll the hell back if you want details.
and remember, the Radcliffe-Harvard project I never knew about was started in 1981 and Blackwell's Island was seized ILLEGALLY by the state of New York while we were patching up solders AGAIN, since the American Revolution.
/me middle fingers up at Chrome.. no pics of the applications by other Daughters of the Revolution.
Oh my.. am I extinct?
Fuck your fears... (fuck is also an alliteration for FORGET... remember, I have a speech impediment)
I also have been gaslit to only cry when I'm PISSED THE HELL OFF
A Lady knows the difference between how the House Republicans CURSED The Obama Family and has REFUSED to make up for their mistakes.
Yes wypipo, go ahead and take credit for calling this bullshit an election.
"You go give those liberals HELL, Ronnie... Ronald the Ray-gun... I called him the Bobble-Head Doll... the John Wayne knockoff." Ah know.. the USED-to-Haves didn't have a voice... AGAIN!
To hell with the never had a chance in the first place
BTW, who the fuck did they ask about Space Travel being BORING?
Could it have been, Donald J. Trump? AKA Kaptain Krunchy Kombover?
shit.. that server is LONG gone, Paulites.
Ayn Rand is hereby and OFFICIALLY BANNED from my AFTERLIFE
Ancestry research was my mission for education, legacy, tracking Genetic medical issues and my ex is pissed because after Quantum Mechanics/Physics ... his BS paper about "The Genome Project" in Miami had me wondering about our initials spelling the word, "AMOEBA" and why I call John McCain's showboat a Petri Dish manufacturing widows, orphans and social diseases...like my ex, who had better cough up from the Cuban Mafia he threatened ME with.
When he DARED threaten me,
I said... "Um... HAAAAVE you met DADDY?"
Because the LAW is, if you can't outrank Daddy, good luck pushing ME around.
.....bootcamp was hilarious for me, but I lost hair because for being the ONLY ONE who didn't go to IT. That's worse than getting over it and I do suspect they were just served cookies and milk, then instructed to whine about it when they returned.
US Navy bootcamp was nothing BUT a gaslight.
We had a saying back when I was a recruit Religious Petty Officer who yelled,
"ATTENTION ON DECK" when night watch came in from the hallway....
The saying was,.... "BLACKWELL?!..... drop"
Once Chief Blackwell and my CC carried on an entire conversation as
I counted off ... embarrassed because it was in front of our brother company
who was a bit ... um... happy we wailed on them in every way.
I was at "150 Ma'am" when I finally stopped and requested permission to recover.
....laughing my ass off because I could have asked at #30.
Some bitch in Tigard Oregon is reading some of those letters right about nowish...
or she wiped her ass with them for being WRONG to have done what she did when the government shut down. They moved Rose Morrison of PRINCETON apartments in Tigard Oregon. It also has a label "GEORGETOWN SQUARE" on it.
Oh yes, he'd been groomed just for me.... but it wasn't by GOD.
This is what I told my Dad when I was 14 about his wife.
The REAL anti-christs are being outted as
I ramble ....on another 9-11.
Retro-vertigo to where I just learned what we called "sections" in that Levittown were actually called, "QUADRANTS"
...no, not Trek at all.. I'm not sure who started calling Sci Fi space coordinates, "sectors"
but mincing words doesn't negate the FACT that HAMSTER BITE!
and they're not DOGS.
and dogs sure as hell aren't horses.
We saw this coming. When I talked to Dad about the Bible Code and Remote Viewing,
and they said it wouldn't work anymore, we had a GREAT talk about that.
And I couldn't believe he actually quoted the AMAZING Jamaican PROPHET, Gil Scott Heron.
We were stunned to be finally connect on that level.
Nothing made him happier than when my light came ON.
He said, "What's the first thing you do when your code is broken?"
I'm like.. "Duh.. change the code.. or the codex... or the key....."
and we went .. "woah"
War economies are EVIL, PERIOD!
I doubt seriously that Steve Case didn't have our rants about Kennedy's crash in 1999.
fascism negates that deep inside we're all the same crap.
The call center got the news on Weatherbug. People said, "accident".
I said, "Accident my ass... BIN LADEN!"
and when the "music died" (phones went dead)
We, the people IN THE KNOW... contacted all our friends on AOL and Yahoo messengers getting our friends out of their offices around the Beltway.
I was online with my BFF at FAA.
"Hey, did you know they're talking about THREE PLANES?"
She said, "THREE?"
Yes THREE, it's ON!
Due to the FASCIST, TRUMPIST, hiring freeze, there was NO FAA CHIEF that day.
yeah yeah, we knew, we knew... we just didn't figure on getting LAID OFF after pulling through stuff like that while we were being LAUDED for our TEAMWORK!
and after SHE did the 9-11 report, they put some blonde with really thick kneepads in HER office!
Don't THANK US for our SERVICE AGAIN!
APPRECIATE IT, because there's NO WAY IN HELL you earned IT!
The next day, since UNIX Networking wasn't getting called until power was restored, I attended my first and ONLY trade convention.
....and was INSULTED by a little table in the corner with a MORON from CHINA at the table.
Why was he a MORON?
Because the 100$ WiFi kit was sold expecting an INSTALLATION charge of 150$ or so.
and he got PISSED AS HELL for what is now OBVIOUS.
It was INCONCEIVABLE that a BLACK Maylasian WOMAN could EVER have been EDUCATED enough to know such a thing. Boy I let that PoS have it! And I don't EVEN think I got loud, but I told EVERY OTHER BOOTH until I got my cool back to where it belonged.
AKA "Flashing One's Crow"
Man, you never seen the color of my eyes when my blood boils.
It even shows through colored contacts.
In the case of hazel eyes, no optometrist has admitted the FACT that hazel eyes do that.
In that case green means GO......FAST......while you still can!
I doubt that little bitch in the little booth with the OLD TECHNOLOGY
Ever saw a woman who'd nearly gave three Chinese Offier's a coronary.
"No.. BABY, not BUDWEISER!"
I had to pull the pickup over to ROFLMAO
I delivered a bout 7 weeks later.
And Ra Ra Rasputin's lyrics aren't quite right.
I think it was the guy with the SOLID STATE TERABYTE chip for 1000 bucks who heard the full bitch of it.

We missed "Hall of Fame" Company by TWO points.. count 'em...
I was RPO for K-108, the Mad Dawgs.
But we beat the snot out of everybody else and was the first female company to march out ahead of the guys.
Dad sat up next to Admiral Koenig and I never got a picture of them from anyone else. ..it actually pissed me off. and then I was balled out at Church for ...making E-4 out of Avionics. I have no idea what happened, but for years that pastor gave a shout out to whoever came back in uniform.
I got a public lecture on the EVILS of the Civil Rights movement and how it should have been called the "Equal WRONGS movement".
Dad was in uniform (a three piece suit) and his side eye said,
I didn't know the homeownership benchmark was E-4 income for a basic Levittown house I grew up in. and it was set by the REPUBLICANS!
pfft.. US Navy was a life sentence for this Blackwell. They should have KNOWN we had a foundation set up at Harvard-Radcliffe!

Southern Campaign American Revolution Pension Statements & Rosters Bounty Land Warrant of William Blackwell BLWt1861-300 VA Transcribed and annotated by C. Leon Harris. Revised 4 July 2014. [The following is the only primary document in the file.] Land Warrant No. 1861 for 300 acres issued on the 17 th July 1832 in the name of Elizabeth Scott only surviving child and heir at law of William Blackwell deces’d. who was a Captain in the Virg’a. line – in virtue of the Special Act of Congress approved 14 th July 1832. Wm. Gordon Clk. [The following are from bounty-land records in the Library of Virginia. Some online images are illegible.] Tuesday Jan’y 21 st 1777 The committee of the Treasury reported that they have had under consideration the requisition of Capt William Blackwell for a sum of money to be advanced him bounty and subsistance of his company in a Virginia Regiment under the command of Col [Moses] Rawlings, that there shou’d be advanced to the said Col Rawlings, he to be accountable the sum of 1477:85 and that the sum to be delivered to the said Capt Blackwell for the purposes aforesaid. [In the item below missing parts of the online images are indicated by * or inferred in brackets.] Washington Feb 7th 183 Sir [Alexander Scott] I received yesterday your letter making enquiries respecting the military services of Capt. William Blackwell deceased. H[e] was in July 1776 appointed a Captain in a regiment composed partly of Maryla[nd]ers and party of Virginians which was [I] think to be commanded by Colo. McG[*; probably Robert Magaw] or Colo. Rawlings. The Maryland part of [*] was captured in Fort Washington [16 Nov 1776]. The Virginia companies were not completed ti[ll] about the close of the year 1776. In the b[e]ginning of 1777 they were attached to th[e] 11 th Virginia Regiment then command[ed] by Colo. Daniel Morgan. I was well acquainted with Capt. William Blackwell and know that he served through the campaign of 1777. In the course of the year 1778 as well as I recollect the number of Virginia regiments was r[e]duced by putting two together, and several officers became supernumerary there being no troops for them to command. I do not know certainly whether Capt. Blackwell resigned or became a supernumerary officer, liable to be again called into service. [See endnote] I do not recollect his resignation, and am confident that I did not see him afterwards in the army. I have always understood that the muster rolls of the continental army were burn[ed] when the war office was consumed in this city. The public papers in Virginia were destroyed by the British during the invasion by Arnold [Gen. Benedict Arnold, Jan 1781], but I do not suppose those papers contained any evidence of Capt. Blackwells service I do not believe that any person now alive can say whether Capt. Blackwell resigned or became a supernumerary. Every officer from the county [Fauquier] except myself, is, I believe dead. Capt. Philip Slaughter [W29886] of Culpeper was an officer in the same Regiment and may possibly be able to give some [*]tion on the subject, tho’ I do not thin[k] [*] I do not recollect any other officer [*] [r]egiment that is now alive. I am Sir very respectfully your obed’t/ [signed] J Mars[hall] [John Marshall, pension application S5731, Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court] Washington Feb. 18 th 1830 Dear Sir [Alexander Scott] Your letter of the 15 th is just received. I was first Lieutenant in Capt. William Blackwells company. No person I believe ever doubted his courage. He conducted himself as other officers without attracting any particular notice. I am very respectfully your obed’t Dear Sir [Alexander Scott] March 28 th 1830 Your letter of the 2d this Ins’t. came to hand to day, I am sorry it not in my power to give you the satisfactory infomation you require, I was acquainted with Cap. Wm. Blackwell previous to the revolion I think as well I can recollect he went into the service in 1776 and left the service sometime in year 1778 that he had the commission of a Captain but wheather he retired from the service on furlough or as a supernumary I can’t inform you or what Regiment but think was the 10 th in the Va. line in the Continental service, I was near neighbour to Cap’n. When he died and know that your Wife Mrs. Elizabeth Scott was his only child I shall be glad to give you any information in my power, Please present my respects to Mrs. Scott I am with Rispect your most Ob’t. Serv’t./ Wm. Foote Culpeper September 25 1830 Dear Sir Your favor dated the 24 th of July last [several illegible words] did not come to hand untill this Thursday on Court day. I can with truth say that it will at all times afford me pleasure to give any & all the information that may be required by the Descendants of any of the old Brother Officers I shall therefore proceed to [illegible word] you, which information I possess respecting the services of Capt Wm Blackwell In July 1776 the Committee of Safety of the County of Culpeper (for I was then Clerk) proceeded agreeably to a decision from the General Committee of Safety, then sitting in Williamsburg to appoint a Captain, & other Subaltern officers & raise a Company of Rifle Men [several illegible words] I was appointed a Lieutenant – the June next the Committee of Safety of Fauquier County [several illegible words] appointed William Blackwell Captain & John Marshall Lieut [the rest illegible] [signed] Phil Slaughter Augusta Va 10 th Dec’r 1830 Sir [Alexander Scott] Your letters of Oct’r. & Nov’r 20 th arrived on the 3rd Instant. To your first & fifth Interrogatories I answer that I was well acquainted with William Blackwell of Fauquier. He was a Captain in the Virginia Line on Continental Establishment, and, my recollection is, belonged to the 11 th Virg’a. Regiment. To your 2nd 3rd & 4th Interrogatories I answer that I have no distinct recollection of the precise time Captain Blackwell was in actual service but, from circumstances, believe it could not have been much mor or less than two years. At or near the close of the campaign of 1778 the ranks from various causes had become thin, and the recruiting service having lingered, It was thought proper to blend & consolidate the Regiments which left a considerable number of supernumerary officers, some of whom were ordered on recruiting service, others to retire. until called for and some few perhaps too umbrage [two or three illegible words] and resigned but to which of these classes Captain Blackwell belongd I do not now remember About that time however he [illegible word] the Army and I think it most [illegible word] as a supernumerary. Captain Blackwells patriotism or bravery I believe was never questioned or doubted by any. respectfully/ our ob s’t/ Ro. Porterfield [Robert Porterfield S8965] To the Honorable the Governor and Council of the Commonwealth of Virginia; The memorial of Elizabeth Scott respectfully sheweth, that your memorialist is daughter and sole representative of the late Captain William Blackwell of Fauquier County, that her father was appointed in July 1776 a Captain in the Virginia service and continental line, Chief Justice Marshall, being, as he states his first Lieutenant (no 2) It appears from the evidence submitted that Captain Blackwell was a patriot, and a brave and meritorious officer (no 4 & 6) that he was at the head of his company at the battles of Brandywine [11 Sep 1777] and Germantown [4 Oct 1777]; that he belonged to the eleventh Regiment (see adjutant Gen’l Porterfield’s letter No 14). it is proved by Col Slaughter (no 3) that the 11 th Regiment was, about two years after Captain Blackwell entered the service, consolidated and annexed to the 7th Virginia Regiment and a number of officers discharged as supernumeraries; it is very certain from the testimony here presented that at or about that time Captain Blackwell left the army. Neither Chief Justice Marshall nor any other person remembers to have heard that he resigned; on the contrary the respectable revolutionary officers herein referred to, are of opinion that he left the army as a supernumerary. Captain Thomas Blackwell [S35193], who served to the end of the war states that “being a near relation and [one or two illegible words] of great intimacy with Capt Blackwell, the resignation [illegible word] so intimate a friend at that critical period of the revolution wou’d have made so deep an impression on his mind that he must have retained a recollection of it!! (no 10) William Foote Esq’r whose estate joined that of Captain Blackwell, is uncertain whether he returned on furlough or as a supernumerary (no 5) For the character of Mr Foote see Nos 6 & 7) Your petitioner wou’d observe that most of the military Documents in relation to the Virginia troops were consumed by fire in Washington (see No 1) She is therefore compelled to resort to [several words missing from the online image] of the testimony of surviving revolutionary officers; after the lapse of half a century, the ravages of death, the destruction of fire, and the casualties of time and chance it is matter of surprize that she has been able to throw so much light on a subject, which in a few years more would have been buried in the midnight of oblivion. Your memorialist wou’d observe that her father and all his brothers, three in number were found at the post of honor in their country’s course (see 3d auditors statement) Her uncles did not resign and why shou’d it be presumed that her father did? The same motives of patriotism which induced him to take up arms, wou’d have prevented his resigning while his country required his services. Your memorialist wou’d observe that her father died in 1785 when she was about six years old, & she having married at an early period, has from the time of her father’s death been incapacitated from prosecuting her rights – In consequence of this long delay, her witnesses are few in number, tho high in respectability. She has often heard her mother (who died in 17[last two digits illegible)] say that her father was entitled to land and pay for his military services. A similar statement was made many years ago to your memorialist’s husband by the late uncles Col John [John Blackwell, possibly BLWt264-300] and Col Joseph Blackwell [S37781]. Your memorialist, under an impression that her father was entitled to five years pay, or the Commutation, at the last session of Congress presented a petition, which was referred to the committee on military affairs in the Senate. No report was made, but the chairman, Col Benton, stated to your petitioners husband, that “the committee was perfectly satisfied with the testimony as establishing the facts of Captain Blackwell’s having served two years, and retiring as a supernumerary or deranged officer, but that having been deranged prior to 1780, when the resolve of Congress passed, no precedent allowing similar claims cou’d be found” – that this was the only difficulty in the case, is proved by the letter of the Hon’ble Mr [illegible], a member of the committee (see no 15). The committee admitted that Capt Blackwell had a good claim on the United States, for one years pay, and three hundred acres of Land but it was too [two illegible words] the session for another petition. Your memorialist reflects with pleasure that he native state has always been distinguished for gratitude, justice, and liberality, to thos brave men, who in the hour of danger repaired to the standard of their Country; who encountered the inclemencies of the Seasons, and perils of war, to obtain that independence which we now enjoy; by whose valor this nation has been able to assume a high rank among the sovereign powers of the earth. It is gratifying to her to reflect that her father and all her uncles were in this number. Your memorialist under these circumstances prays [unknown number of words missing form the online images], and that they will direct a warrant for her father’s bounty land as a Captain serving from July 1776 to the end of the war to be issued in her favor. [signed] Elizabeth Scott [A note at the bottom of the above states that 4822 acres were claimed, of which Elizabeth Scott received 4000 acres. Among rejected claims in the Library of Virginia is her petition for the additional bounty land. In addition there are the following.] I was well acquainted with the late Captain William Blackwell of the Virginia line, on continental establishment. He was appointed a Captain by the Court or Committee of Fauq’r County, I forget which in July 1776 (as well as I remember) in a regiment composed partly of Marylanders and partly of Virginians, to be commanded, I believe, by Col Stevenson. The second in command was Col Rawlings. I was myself appointed first Lieutenant of the company on the same day. The Maryland companies were captured with Lieutenant Col Rawlings in Fort Washington as I have always understood, and believe. The Virginia companies were not then completed, and did not march until late in 1776, or early in 1777. The original regiment being broken up by the capture of a large part of it in Fort Washington, the Virginia companies including Captain Blackwell’s, were place in the 11 th Virginia Regiment then commanded by Colonel Daniel Morgan. Capt Blackwell served tho’ the campaign of 1777. At it’s close he went home, and as well as I can recollect I have never seen him since. I think he marched with us to Valley Forge and left us there. I certainly have no recollection of his resignation, and think my situation in the company wou’d have induced me to notice it had the fact occurred J. Marshall July 6th 1831 In a former certificate I mentioned Col Morgan as the original Colonel of the regiment in which Captain Blackwell was appointed. That mistake was occasioned by the fact that Col Morgan was captured in Fort Washington I am since satisfied that Col Stevenson was to command the regiment. Tho’ this variance is unimportant, I think proper to mention it. I never saw Colonel Morgan or Col Stevenson J Marshall State of Virginia and City of Richmond Ss The Honorable John Marshall this day appeared before me the subscriber an alder in and for the said city and made oath that the foregoing certificate by him subscribed, is true according to the best of his knowledge and remembrance. Given under my hand this 6th July 1831 James Rawlings [Copy certified by Alexander Scott.] Augusta County Virginia Mr Alex’r Scott/ Sir Sept 20 th 1831 Your letter of the 31 st Ulto was duly received; my health however and other circumstances, and especially an unwillingness to undertake weilding a pen with my tremulous hand, has prevented in this my complying with your request. You have my statement and affidavit Below. Yr obedt Servt/ Ro. Porterfield I hereby certify that I was well acquainted with William Blackwell dec’d late of Fauq’r County Virginia. He was a Captain in the Virginia line in the War of the revolution. He belonged to the 11 th Regiment, which was blended and consolidated with the 7th regiment. My recollection is some time in the year 1778, about which time Capt Blackwell retired from the army, and I believe did not again join in during the war – but whether Capt Blackwell resigned his commission obtained a furlough, or retired as a supernumerary I have now no distinct recollection, but am under the impression that he retired as a supernumerary Given the 20 th day of Sept 1831 Ro Porterfield late a Captain in the 11 th Virginia Regiment. [Certified copy.] NOTES: Virginia provided bounty land to soldiers who were in active service or supernumerary to the end of the war in 1783. According to F. B. Heitman’s Historical Register of Officers of the Continental Army During the War of the Revolution, William Blackwell resigned on 10 Jan 1778. Muster rolls of the combined 11 th and 15 th Regiments for June 1778 and afterward do not list William Blackwell. Nor is he found on muster rolls of the 7th Regiment in Sep 1778 and afterward. William Blackwell is not listed among the officers made supernumerary at the White Plains Arrangement of 14 Sep 1778 (http://revwarapps.org/b138.pdf).

I'd been joking through the show about doing white things while brown when BOOM. and then my cousin John B, during the next Victorian show Portland knows who kicked their butt in the 1948 Wichita version.

Who remember the WAR on PINBALL by LaGuardia in 1976?
Japan had Pachinko
They had nothing better to do than throw all that steel in the HUDSON RIVER?
tsk tsk tsk
I think I rolled the one at Tasker's Teen-Club 3 times
It was one of the first multi-ball formats they still use
in video pinball....with different skins.
There was a Latin Club in Milwaukee where an old rocker
from the 70s used to play. Maybe it was
The Stroll Inn"
He looked familiar, but I was in "The Zone" and wore the him out.
Who was that guy?
In Bowie, GALAGA and Cyrus were my faves, but PGCC's Student Union played "Woodstock" concert videos and had "Dragon's Lair" for 25 cents.
Sometimes I let the dragon win, after mocking the princess.
It was filarious!

Grandma graduated from North Carolina. and when WE stepped up Reagan said.. "OMG, they're KIDS are freaking SHARP!" and Nixon was.. "Oh, yah... and they don't sit around PLOTTING to get WHITEY" like we told WashPo! OMG Better Shut down the little Android, SHE get's "fuzzy Logic" because she IS Fuzzy Logic. She's got her business plan setup in KINDERGARTEN By First Grade, the chunky little brat solved for TAO n shit! ...for the Peace Ninjas... and THAT is how they TREAT BROWN BLACKWELLIANS

"ARCADIAN BUILDERS ASYLUM!"
By 1979, I'd already been to Camp David, I SURE AS SHIT didn't want to spend the last
summer I'd have with MY COUSIN

I think I HURLED when I saw the Mt. Holyoke brochure
It was not long after a stomach flu triggered my first period.
I was sick as a DOG for a month with fevers like 101 and 105 for a month.

AFTER Military service,
Many turn to CATHOLICISM because the holy rollers

OBAMACRATS are working....
The hum is not helping, but it's cool to drown it out I think.
But NO.. they've shredded my progress AGAIN and out of petty spite and jealousy
because they don't think they have to know what DIVERGENT thinkers
think and feel when a MORON decides a MORON should be in charge of
The Arts, The SCIENCES and ALL THE MUSES....
