Tarbell (Appendix), 265. Blankenship was a merchant in Springfield, Il-linois.
 Probably a misreading for ``Guliher.'' The muster roll of Lincoln's company shows that David Rankin transferred to the foot company of Captain Seth Pratt on May 19, and on this same day Isaac Guliher transferred to Lincoln's company from Pratt's company. The name appears as ``Guliher'' on the muster roll, but appears in other sources as ``Gulihur,'' ``Golliher,'' or ``Gollihur.''
