Quite simply, this book has primarily been written to replace a raft of unsubstantiated, often illogical factoids about the family of William and Sina (Knight) Blagg. With the exception of information about their youngest daughter (Mary Montgomery [Blagg] Parrish Roberts), virtually everything that has been written about them has been inaccurate and completely bereft of fact or evidence. The reasons for this are many, though it appears the damage began when facts of another, unrelated, William Blagg were wrongly attributed to him. Things only devolved from there, as most of what had been attributed to his family defied the simplest, most basic logic. The hope is that this situation will now be corrected, at least to the extent possible, given the scarce availability of public records in many jurisdictions.
