“William Blunderfield, age 21, departed England, Port of Departure - London.  On ship:  Mediator.

Volume 1, Page 13. (Note that this is the first appearance of the middle initial 'B' in his name)

Between October 1852 and March 1855, William Blunderfield and his family moved from Connecticut to Tennessee.

When the 1870 census was taken, William Blunderfield was counted  twice!  In June 1870, he was in Dickinson County, Kansas, living in what was most likely a boarding house.  Later that year, he was back in Tennessee when the 1870 census was taken there.  William had probably gone to Kansas to look for work and then returned to Tennessee to get his family.  The Blunderfield’s moved from Tennessee to Kansas between 1870 and 1875.   

The Abilene Reflector Newspaper printed the following item:
June 15, 1904 "W.B. Blunderfield is visiting sons George & William."

Mary Elizabeth HONER [scrapbook]-H0577 was born 1 on 10 Feb 1830 in Leicestershire, England. She died 1 on 16 Nov 1893 in Solomon, Dickinson County, Kansas, USA. She was buried in Prairie Mound Cemetery, Solomon, Dickinson County, Kansas, USA. Mary married 2 William B BLUNDERFIELD-B0567 about 1851 in Bridgeport, Fairfield County, Connecticut, USA.

She was recorded in a census 6 on 05 Jun 1880 at Lincoln Township, Ottawa Co., Kansas, USA.

The following obituary notice appeared in the 'Solomon Sentinel' - 22 November 1893
“Blunderfield: Mary, wife of W.B. Blunderfield, d. Nov. 16 at home N. of Solomon, age 63y; bur Prairie Mound cem; born Mary Honer at Wharton, Leicestershire, Eng, 1830; came to US 1840; m ca 2y later at Bridgeport, Conn.; lived in Tenn; mov to Kan Dec 1870 to join husb who had preceded her.

However, there doesn't appear to be a Wharton in Leicestershire (there is one in Cheshire and in Herefordshire). Also couldn't find anyone with the surname Honer in the 1841 census for Leicestershire. Could the surname have been Horner or Honor?

The following passenger ship record was found for Mary Honer for 1850. But, it states that Mary Honer came from Ireland, through Liverpool. It is possible that she might have boarded the ship in Liverpool and they incorrectly listed her as being from Ireland?

Sometime between 1870 and 1875, James Blunderfield moved from Tennessee to Texas.  In 1875, James’ parents were living in Kansas.

In 1885, James was in Galveston, Texas. This item appeared in the “Galveston Daily News”
Friday, 24 July 1885, Galveston, Texas, “J.C. Blunderfield, of Montgomery, is a guest of the Washington hotel.” . This is a curious item, was there so little news that they reported hotel guests or was James' presence of some public interest?

Between 1885 and 1891, James moved from Texas to Arkansas.  In 1891, James was living in Little Rock, Arkansas where he married a second time.  

On 21 August 1892, James C. Blunderfield died in Memphis, Tennessee at the age of 37.  He was an engineer on a locomotive and the boiler on that locomotive exploded, killing him instantly.  Also killed in the accident was the fireman that was working with James.
