David was a member of a large family of Blackmons descended from Richard Faro Blackmon, who married three times, having four children by each of the first two wives who themselves each passed shortly after the birth of their fourth child. David's grandmother was the second wife. The third wife bore 8 children who survived beyond infancy. This family resided primarily in the Four Oaks, NC, area and consisted largely of hard-working farm folks, from which David inherited his strong work ethic and sense of family. David's generation is now the oldest surviving generation and continues to reunite annually at Banner Chapel Advent Christian Church in Benson NC on Labor Day Sunday in remembrance of Richard Faro Blackmon and all his descendants. David will be remembered at this years reunion.
