Israel Joseph Blagg (1812 – 1882)

Israel Joseph Blagg was the father of William R. Blagg.  He first married Mary Patsy (H)eaton.  Nothing is really known about her at this time.  He later married Nancy Edgerton(Eddington)Kell.  His parents are uncertain.  He is most likely the son of John Blagg and Elizabeth Whitworth, but could be the son of William Blagg and Sina Knight who were brothers.  He frequently is near John M. Blagg who was his brother or cousin.  Reference to his first wife are found in William R. Blagg’s Cherokee application where she is mentioned as a native Cherokee who died prior to his marriage to Nancy.  His first tombstone had the intital E. J. Blagg.  There is another Israel Blagg who seems to be a generation older as well.
