Descendants of James? Blakely Generation No. 1

1. JAMES?1 BLAKELY was born Abt. 1720 in probably Ireland, and died WFT Est. 1751-1811. He married JENNIE? TYE? WFT Est. 1751-1785. She was born WFT Est. 1696-1724 in probably England, and died WFT Est. 1751-1813.

* Notes for JAMES? BLAKELY: James Blakely may have been the father of our Charles Blakely. If so he probably emigrated from Ireland to Virginia or the Carolinas, prior to the French and Indian War of 1755. He probably brought his wife and children with him. Among his children were probably three sons - James, William and Charles. bib: "The Charles Blackley Family of Knox County, Tennessee, Vol. I" by Gregory M.

2. iii. CHARLES BLACKLEY, b. Abt. 1736, ?; d. Aft. 1816, probably Knox County, Tennessee. Generation No. 2 2. CHARLES2 BLACKLEY (JAMES?1 BLAKELY) was born Abt. 1736 in ?, and died Aft. 1816 in probably Knox County, Tennessee. He married MARGARET DAVIS WFT Est. 1767-1798. She was born WFT Est. 1734-1761, and died Aft. 1823 in ?.

*Notes for CHARLES BLACKLEY: Charles Blackley was probably born about 1736. There is some doubt about this date, however, because it would make him nearly 40 before his first child was born. His wife was probably named Margaret Davis. Nothing is known of Charles Blackley until 1770, when he appeared as a taxpayer in Botecourt County, Virginia. In fact we cannot be certain that this Charles was the same man that later lived in Knox County, Tennessee. We do know, however, that our Blakely family lived in Virginia in the 1770's, that this Charles was probably the only Charles Blackley or Blakely in Virginia during this time, and that he disappeared about the same time our Charles appeared in Knox County, Tennessee. During the early 1770's Botecourt County covered most of the Upper Shenandoah Valley and the Virginia panhandle. The location specified by the tax collector for Charles and his neighbors was at the headwaters of the Middle Holston River, located near the present town of Marion in Smyth County. At that time this area was on the very edge of the wilderness. The Loyal Land Company sold land in this area for $0.10 per acre. In 1776 the Virginia assembly passed a law allowing previous settlers to pre-empt 400 acres of land whether or not they had title. A visit to Smyth County today may leave one puzzled as to why these early settlers would choose to homestead there. The terrain is steep and the soil rocky. Little of the land is currently used for anything other than pasture and forest. It is hard to imagine how these people were able to produce enough food to survive during those early years. In fact, in Charles' day the area where he settled was known as "Hunger's Mother". The Smyth County area is crossed by a ridge dividing the Shenandoah River system from that of the Holston River, a major tributary to the Tennessee River. Trails used by both whites and natives into Tennessee and Kentucky followed these river systems. This information suggests Charles settled in this area not with the intention of farming, but to run a freighting business. His location would have enabled him to provide an important service to those travelling by river, freighting their things over the ridge separating the river systems. Perhaps he was also involved in constructing boats or other forms of transportation for these western-bound immigrants. A couple of other evidences support this belief. In the 1787 tax list Charles was reported to have 15 horses, more than just about anyone in the county. This was many more horses than a farmer would need, but would be useful in a freighting business. In addition, Charles was for a time Superintendent of the roads in his area. It seems natural that a "muleskinner" would be interested in seeing that improvements be made in local roads. Numerous family historians have suggested that Charles fought with the Colonists in the Revolutionary War. Evidence to support this idea is scanty. The U.S. Government has no record of a Charles Blackley serving in the Continental Army. Charles lived far from the "action" connected with that war and had a number of kids born during the 1776-1783 period. These points suggest Charles was not actively involved in the war. Contrary evidence suggests that "he slept and fought in the tents and battlefields of the Revolutionary War". It has also been suggested that Sarah Blakely Williams witnessed a skirmish between the British and Colonists in 1782 when she was seven or eight years old Charles Blackley appeared on numerous tax lists during the 1770's and 1780's, and also served as a witness for a will. He disappeared from the records of Western Virginia after about 1793. In 1794 the man we know for sure as our Charles Blackley appeared in Knox County, Tennessee. On September 7 of that year, he purchased 246 acres of land from Joseph Karns. Land deeds from that day make it difficult to identify current day locations, but apparently the land was south and west of Knoxville near Lyons Creek on the Kingston Pike, which was the main wagon road heading in that direction. Today the land has been incorporated into Knoxville and is covered with homes and businesses. Again the Blakelys were pioneers to a new area. Knoxville had been founded in 1787 by James White, a fellow Scotch-Irishman, who built a fort and several cabins on 1000 acres of land he purchased near the Holston, now Tennessee, River. In fact, the home and store built at that time by White still stands. No doubt Charles Blackley walked through its doorway many times. In fact ownership of much of this land was still in dispute with the native Indians. In 1791 William Blount, the territorial governor, met at White's fort with 41 Cherokee Indian chiefs and negotiated the treaty of Holston, which legitimized settlement by whites of the land around Knoxville and south of the French Broad River. Despite this treaty, numerous Indian attacks occurred in the area until 1793. One story, passed down by Sarah Blakely Williams, is as follows: When Sarah was 17 years old she travelled on foot with her brother, probably Alexander or James, and a neighboring man seventy miles through the Virginia wilderness, and they had to camp one night on the way. About sundown they halted at a creek to camp and the men noticed smoke coming through the brush and they started to reconnoiter to see who was there and saw two Indians, and they deliberately raised their guns and fired on the Indians, killing one Indian and wounding the other, and then rushed on the crippled one and finished him with their tomahawks, then got their guns and blankets and hid them in a hollow tree, and on their return trip got the guns and blankets and took them home and hid them for a time and afterward got them out and sold them. Charles remained at his Lyons Creek homestead for the remainder of his days. In 1799 he sold 9 acres of land to Simon Adamson, then sold 100 acres to John Barger in 1801. He was listed on most Knox County tax lists up through 1812. Tax lists are not available thereafter until 1826. In 1807 he or perhaps his son was appointed constable for Knox County. Fortunately for us Charles left a will listing all his children, 6 sons and 5 daughters. Subsequent research suggests he listed his children by age in his will. The will was dated 17 July 1816 and Charles probably died soon after. His wife Margaret and son Joseph received the bulk of the estate. Margaret lived until at least 1823, when she approved the sale by Joseph of their farm. bib: "The Charles Blackley Family of Knox County, Tennessee, Vol. I" by Gregory M.

*Notes for ? BLAKELY: This daughter of Charles Blackley had apparently died prior to 17 July 1816. Her husband, Joseph Adamson, was mentioned in Charles Blackley's will. Joseph Adamson lived near the Blackley family and was listed on the 1807 to 1811 Knox County tax lists. He probably was the same Joseph Adamson who married Alsey Adamson on 3 October 1815 in Jefferson County, Tennessee. More research is needed to determine what happened to Joseph and his family. bib: "The Charles Blackley Family of Knox County, Tennessee, Vol. I" by Gregory M.

3. JAMES3 BLAKELY (CHARLES2 BLACKLEY, JAMES?1 BLAKELY) was born Bef. 1773 in ?, and died WFT Est. 1794-1863.

*Notes for JAMES BLAKELY: Almost nothing is known for sure about this James Blakely. He was apparently the oldest son of Charles Blackley and was born between 1768 and 1773. Knox County court records identify a James Blakely as a petitioner for custody of Charles Blakely, the son of Charles Blakely, who probably was the son of Charles Blackley. Refer to the history of James' brother, Charles Blakely. In addition, James Blakely was the subject of criminal proceedings in the 1820's because he owed $250 to the state. He was found guilty by jury and was held in custody until the debt was paid. If James was still alive in 1830 and living in Tennessee, he likely was living in Franklin County. This James had a son John P. Blakely. Further research is needed to establish what became of James and his family. bib: "The Charles Blackley Family of Knox County, Tennessee, Vol. I" by Gregory M.

4. ALEXANDER3 BLAKELY (CHARLES2 BLACKLEY, JAMES?1 BLAKELY) was born April 03, 1773 in probably Smyth County, Virginia, and died August 13, 1849 in Penn Township, Jefferson County, Iowa. He married SARAH LAKEY November 18, 1799 in Knox County, Tennessee, daughter of WILLIAM LEAKEY and ELIZABETH SCOTT?. She was born November 26, 1781 in probably Surry County, North Carolina, and died April 29, 1861 in Penn Township, Jefferson County, Iowa.

*Notes for ALEXANDER BLAKELY: Alexander Blakely was born on 7 April 1773 in Virginia, probably in present day Smyth County. He was one of the oldest children of Charles and Margaret Blackley. When approximately 20 years of age he moved with his family to Knox County, Tennessee. One of the Blakely's neighbors in Knox County was the William Lakey family. Among William's children was a daughter Sarah. She was born on 26 November 1781 in North Carolina, perhaps Surrey County, and apparently moved with her family to Knox County in 1793. After living nearby for several years, Alexander and Sarah fell in love and were married. The date of their marriage was 18 November 1799. No record exists of Alexander buying land in Knox County, so he probably farmed land belonging to his father or in-laws. He may also have been living in Jefferson County during this time period. Children came in rapid succession to the couple; Mary in 1800, Isaac in 1802, and Elizabeth in 1805. The joy of these new arrivals was marred by the death of Isaac in 1804. It is not known whether Alexander or Sarah were members of any church before their marriage. Soon after their marriage, however, they were actively involved in the Paw Paw Hollow Baptist Church. This church is located near present day Kodak in Sevier County. Minutes from the congregation indicate that Sarah Blakely was "received by experience" in March 1803. Alexander in October of that same year was "granted liberty to exercise his gift in church", meaning that he became a licensed preacher. In August 1804 Alexander and Sarah were "dismissed by letter", meaning they were probably moving and wanted a letter as evidence of their activity in the Baptist movement. Another source lists Alexander as a delegate to the convention that organized the Tennessee Baptist Association, indicating he played a prominent role in his local association. A historian wrote the following about these pioneer Baptists: "There were few meeting-houses in those days. When members met for their monthly meeting, it was often in the house of some centrally located member. Business sessions were always held on Saturday before the preaching service on the Sabbath. The business sessions were formal, their rules of behavior strict. Drinking, card playing, and dancing were prohibited. Members were sometimes 'churched' for unnecessary gossiping. These Baptists were loyal law-abiding citizens and among the leaders of their community." Possibly as early as 1804, Alexander and his family had moved to their new home in Warren County, Tennessee. The 1806 Knox County tax list does not mention Alexander, but does mention his father, Charles, and several of the Lakey family members. When they moved the approximately 150 miles west-southwest from their home in Knox County to the wilderness of South Central Tennessee is not known. Several items of interest are known. Although Knox County lay on the "frontier" of the original 13 colonies, it was by no means sparsely inhabited. Knox County was an important stopover on the road between Virginia and North Carolina on the east and the Tennessee and Mississippi River Valleys to the west. For a young man looking for good cheap land, movement farther west likely offered greater opportunities. In 1805, Indian claims to the Cumberland Plateau region in Tennessee, of which Warren County is a part, were extinguished, permitting settlers to inhabit the region. The opening of this large area to settlement must have been just what Alexander was seeking. Much of this early land was deeded to Revolutionary War veterans, particularly those from North Carolina, as compensation for their service. Many of these veterans chose to sell their land, rather than settle on it. William and Jeremiah Lakey were two of many who purchased land from veterans. William and some of the other Lakey family members may have persuaded Alexander and Sarah to move with them to Warren County. It also seems likely all families moved together. This move probably occurred between 1805 and 1810. The first mention of Alexander Blakely living in Warren County is an 1812 tax list. Again the importance of religion in Alexander's life was made manifest. In 1812, Alexander and another man contracted with a Williaiu Smith to build a 25'x2O'xl2' meetinghouse near John Lakey's property. No record has been found to demonstrate that Alexander served in the War of 1812, although his brothers and several of the Lakey family may have served. If Alexander came to Warren County in 1810, he and Sarah had seven children while living there, namely Sarah, Isaac, Effie, Alexander Jr., George and Isham who were twins, and Rhoda. He also lost his daughter Elizabeth while living in Warren County. Alexander made his first known land purchase in 1817, buying 117 acres of land for $500. He later acquired or purchased 50 acres in 1824, 170 acres in 1828, 300 acres in 1830 and 67 acres in1837. This series of land purchases suggest Alexander and his family prospered while living in Warren County. One by one Alexander and Sarah's children married and left home. Charles and Margaret moved with their families to Illinois in 1830. Isaac followed in 1834. Amos and Margaret moved to Jefferson County, Iowa in 1836. No doubt stories of the rich Iowa farmland filled the letters these children wrote to their parents. Even though Alexander was in his sixties he remained involved in civic activities. In 1837 a petition was drawn up to create a new county from Warren County. Alexander was one of a select group who determined the boundaries for this new county which was named Coffee County. By 1839 virtually all of Alexander and Sarah's married children were living in Iowa. Consequently, Alexander and Sarah moved with their daughter Mary and unmarried children to Penn township in Jefferson County, Iowa. Only their daughter Sarah and her family remained in Tennessee. Alexander and Sarah homesteaded 200 acres approximately six miles north-northwest of Fairfield. It was here that Alexander and Sarah lived out their remaining years. These last years should have been satisfying to Alexander and his wife but fate intervened. Life on the frontier was difficult. Disease, poor nutrition, long hours of work, and poor shelter all took their toll in the lives of both children and adults. The Blakelys were not insulated from this loss of life. In the space of five years, from1842 to 1847, Alexander and Sarah lost one son and five daughters. Of their original family of twelve children, only three remained alive. Surely this must have been a difficult time in their lives. Alexander's sojourn in life came to an end on 13 August 1849, probably at his home in Jefferson County. He lived to the age of 76 years and was just three months short of celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. He was laid to rest in Upper Richwoods Cemetery, located about four miles east of their farm. To the last he maintained a fervent faith in God and his religious convictions. In his will, after specifying how his estate was to be divided among his children, Alexander directed that the executor of his will purchase "a sufficient number of large Bibles, one bible of which shall be given to each of my grandchildren then living...". This directive was carried out and many bibles were distributed to his grandchildren. Those family members currently possessing one of these bibles, if any still exist, possess a true heirloom of the Blakely family, one that should be treasured and saved for future generations. bib: "The Charles Blackley Family of Knox County, Tennessee, Vol. I" by Gregory M.

Isham was retarded, or an "idiot" as they were labelled in that day. When his parents died the bulk of the estate went to Isham for his care. His two remaining brothers, Isaac and Charles, went to court after their mother's death to decide who should be appointed Isham's guardian. After several rounds Isaac won appointment. Isham remained in Jefferson County, however, until his death on 12 December 1897. He was also buried in Upper Richwoods Cemetery and was the last of his siblings to die. Isham was remembered in his obituary as a pleasant fellow, who would be missed. His prominent, and relatively new, headstone suggests he was important to someone, since his family was long since departed when he died. Isham Blakely was a twin brother of George Blakely. He never married. bib: "The Charles Blackley Family of Knox County, Tennessee, Vol. I" by Gregory M. Perry, Amundsen Publishing Co., Decorah, IA, 1991; Jefferson County, Iowa Records

5. SARAH3 BLAKELY (CHARLES2 BLACKLEY, JAMES?1 BLAKELY) was born January 05, 1775 in Montgomery County, Virginia, and died May 27, 1861 in Westville, LaPorte County, Indiana. She married AZARIAH WILLIAMS Abt. 1800 in Virginia, son of DAVID WILLIAMS and DEBORAH HORSER. He was born April 15, 1775 in Orange County, North Carolina, and died September 26, 1838 in Westville, LaPorte County, Indiana.

*Notes for SARAH BLAKELY: Sarah Blakely was born on 5 January 1775 in Montgomery County, Virginia, of which Smyth County was then a part. In 1800 she married Azariah Williams in Virginia. Azariah was born on 15 April 1775 in Orange County, North Carolina, the son of David and Deborah Horser Williams. The Williams family were Quakers. Shortly after his mother died, Azariah ran away from home and left his Quaker faith. At the time of his marriage he was not a Quaker in good standing. According to one record, the family moved Friendsville, Blount County, Tennessee soon after their marriage. They may have been living in Jefferson County, Tennessee, however. Friendsville is about 40 miles downriver from Knoxville and Jefferson County is just across the Tennessee River. Apparently during this time Azariah returned to his Quaker faith and Sarah also joined. In about 1813 the family moved to Economy, Wayne County, Indiana, near the Ohio state line, and later to Westville in LaPorte County. Azariah died on 26 September 1838 in Westville and was buried in the Old Quaker Cemetery. Sarah died on 27 May 1861, also in Westville. bib: "The Charles Blackley Family of Knox County, Tennessee, Vol. I" by Gregory M. Perry, Amundsen Publishing Co., Decorah, IA, 1991;

6. JESSIE3 BLAKELY (CHARLES2 BLACKLEY, JAMES?1 BLAKELY) was born December 25, 1777 in probably Smyth County, Virginia, and died January 17, 1858 in Gentry County, Missouri. He married MARY KERNS WFT Est. 1808-1842. She was born Abt. 1777 in ?, and died January 17, 1858 in Gentry County, Missouri.

*Notes for JESSIE BLAKELY: Jesse Blakely can probably best be described as the "character" or black sheep in the family. He was born on 25 December 1777 in Virginia, probably Smyth County. He married Mary (Polly) Kerns/Keams, who was born about 1777. She may well have been related to the Karns who sold Charles Blackley his Knox County farm, although no evidence has been found to support this idea. Jesse united with the Paw Paw Hollow Baptist Church, located near present-day Kodak, Tennessee, in 1803. The church minutes record that he was received "by experience" in February 1803. Alexander Blakely and his wife Sarah also belonged to this church. However, Jesse was excluded, apparently meaning kicked out, from the church in April 1804 for drinking and fighting. Knox County court minutes record that on 16 April 1802 Jesse Blakely and three others were fined $5 for "breech of the Sabbath day". This fine may also have been the result of drinking and/or fighting. Jesse disappeared from Knox County tax rolls after 1804, but apparently still lived in Tennessee for several more years. A Jesse Blakely was listed on the Davidson County tax rolls of 1805. A descendant of Jesse, Lois Laird, feels certain Jesse Blakely served in the War of 1812 as a Lieutenant from Sevier County. Less certain is family tradition that he fought with Andrew Jackson in the battle of New Orleans. In about 1820 Jesse and most of his family moved to Whitley County, Kentucky. About 1834 they moved again to Daviess County, Missouri, which at that time lay on the very edge of the American frontier. During the 1836-1838 period many members of the Latter Day Saint or Mormon church settled in the Daviess County area. Their numbers immediately caused a change in the balance of political power in the area and created a great deal of resentment among the non-LDS population. Given his background, it seems quite likely that Jesse Blakely and his family were among those resentful of these new settlers. On April 10, 1839 a man named Blakely was among a set of guards overseeing a group of church leaders being tried on what were subsequently shown to be groundless charges. The church leaders called upon a Stephen Markham to give witness in their defense. History of the Church (v3 pp 314-315) states that "After he [Markham] had closed [his testimony], Blakely, one of the guard, came in and said to Markham, that he wanted to speak to him. Brother Markham walked out with him, and around the end of the house when Blakely called out, '..... ..... you ..... old Mormon! I'll kill you!' and struck at Markham with his fist and then with a club. Markham took the club from him and threw it over the fence." In 1840 Jesse Blakely was appointed county assessor. A subsequent court record noted that because he "hath failed to enter into Bond for the faithful discharge of the duties of said office [assessor] according to law" he was replaced in 1841. On 17 January 1858 both Jesse and his wife Polly died in Gentry County, Missouri. Jesse's son Charles, in a letter to Asa Ross, the husband of Charles' sister, dated 3 April 1858, states: "I had newes from father and Mother that ? was not expected to live And it turned out so it is with pane to me that I have Give you the newes of thar death Thay both departed this Life on the 17 day of January 1858 father died at 3 AM and Mother at 10 AM Both beried in one Grave Both willing To Go and felt well Satisfied thay was going to a place of Rest wher we all Must Go Sooner or latter". bib: "The Charles Blackley Family of Knox County, Tennessee, Vol. I" by Gregory M.

*Notes for AGNES BLAKELY: Little is known about this daughter of Charles Blackley. She was probably born in 1779. All evidence suggests she was married to William Dodd. William and Agnes served as witnesses for Alexander and Sarah Blakely's marriage. William served as the executor of Charles Blackley's will, was a witness to the sale of the Blakely family farm in 1823 by Margaret Blackley and her son Joseph, and appeared on legal documents dealing with the Blakely family on several other occassions. William Dodd was the son of Josiah Dodd who died in 1809, and Mary Luttrell Dodd. He was born between 1770 and 1780, probably in Virginia. In 1811 he purchased 350 acres from William Leaky in Jefferson County, Tennessee. William lived there until 1826, when he sold the farm. By 1840 William was living in Morgan County, Illinois. He probably died there before 1846. They had six children, of which only one, Ann, is known for certain. bib: "The Charles Blackley Family of Knox County, Tennessee, Vol. I" by Gregory M.

*Notes for CHARLES BLAKELY, JR.: Little is known about Charles Blackley, Jr. Apparently he was born in 1785. A Charles Blakely married Polly Ruth on 27 November 1815 in Knox County, Tennessee. Court records state that on 3 October 1825 Polly Blakely appeared in court in a custody battle with James Blakely. James sought to gain custody of the son of Polly Blakely and her deceased husband, Charles Blakely. The court ruled that the son, also named Charles, be left with Polly. Based on the court records, the son was about three years old when his father married Polly Ruth. Consequently, James may have attempted to gain custody of the son because he was his brother's son by a previous marriage. Additionally, William Dodd provided security for the debts of Polly Blakely. Although the evidence is not definitive, it does support the idea that Charles who married Polly Ruth is indeed Charles Blackley's son. Polly later married Jesse Mason in Knox County. bib: "The Charles Blackley Family of Knox County, Tennessee, Vol. I" by Gregory M.

10. JOSEPH MARTIN3 BLAKELY (CHARLES2 BLACKLEY, JAMES?1 BLAKELY) was born Abt. 1787 in probably Smyth County, Virginia, and died January 21, 1857 in Barnard, Grant Township, Nodaway County, Missouri. He married JINCY DIVINE ANN BROWNING March 18, 1808 in Knox County, Tennessee, daughter of JAMES BROWNING. She was born WFT Est. 1773-1797, and died WFT Est. 1835-1887.

*Notes for JOSEPH MARTIN BLAKELY: Joseph Martin Blakely is generally believed to be the youngest son of Charles and Margaret Blackley. He also apparently was his father's favorite son, judging from the inheritance he received. He was born in 1787 or 1789, probably in Smyth County, Virginia. He married Jincy Divine Ann Browning on 18 March 1808 in Knox County, Tennessee. Apparently her father was James Browning and they were from North Carolina. Joseph served as a private in the company led by Captain Joseph Calloway in the 1st Regiment of Tennessee Mounted Volunteers in the War of 1812. He volunteered for service on or around 28 September 1813 and was honorably discharged around 20 December 1813. Joseph apparently lived in Knox County until at least 1823, when he and his mother sold his father's farm. By 1830 Joseph and his family were living in Jefferson County, Tennessee. On 1 July 1836 Joseph volunteered to serve one year as an Orderly Sergeant in a regiment of Tennessee Mounted Volunteers. This service was connected to the Seminole War. Joseph actually served one month before being honorably discharged at Dandridge, Tennessee. As a result of this service in 1851 he applied for and received 40 acres of bounty land in Andrew County, Missouri. In 1838 the family came by river to Missouri, leaving the Missouri River at Westport Landing in what is now Kansas City. They settled in Platte County, Missouri. Here they prospered. In the 1840 census he owned nine slaves. In 1844 they moved to Barnard, Grant township, in what was soon to become Nodaway County, Missouri. Joseph died there on 21 January 1857. He was buried in Washington township, Nodaway, Missouri. bib: "The Charles Blackley Family of Knox County, Tennessee, Vol. I" by Gregory M. Perry, Amundsen Publishing Co., Decorah, IA, 1991;

Thomas was elected to the Missouri legislature in 1846 and again in 1852 and 1854. He was a slave owner and sympathized with the Confederates, for which he was thrown in jail at different times. During a time when Thomas was in jail, a band of men came to his house commanding Margaret to prepare a meal for them, also intimidating her with "threats of great ferocity". After they left she was "nervously prostrated" and died a few days later from effects of the scare she had received. She died on 16 September 1862 in Nodaway Missouri.

*Notes for JOHN LEMMONS BLAKELY: John Lemmons Blakely was born on 17 March 1834 in Morgan County, Illinois. Early in 1841 John moved with his family to Jefferson County, Iowa. John received his education in the common schools and the Fairfield Seminary. On 10 April 1857 John was married to Lydia Sampson in Jefferson County by the Rev. Joseph Gassner, the local Methodist minister. Lydia was the daughter of the Rev. Thomas and Mary Grundy Sampson. She was bom 20 August 1840 in Golzithney, Cornwall, England where her father was a miner. The family emigrated to America in 1848 and finally settled in Jefferson County, where Thomas was a Methodist minister. John and Lydia moved their family to a farm in Taylor County, Iowa in 1870, settling near Gravity. The trip was made in a covered wagon. John farmed his 160 acres and worked closely with the local Baptist Church. In 1875 John was ordained a minister of the Baptist Church and had charge of a congregation near Hopkins, Missouri. In the summer of 1875 a terrible tragedy occurred. Lydia had washed clothes that day and, after she was through, put a tub of nearly boiling hot water down to scrub the floors. To her horror, her seven-year-old son Roscoe came running into the room and fell into the tub. He later died from infections resulting from these bums. Death and hardship had been constant companions to this young couple, but nothing had prepared John and Lydia for the loss of this dear little boy. And it was said that Lydia was never heard to laugh aloud again. In 1876 Lydia's health began to fail, the result of consumption. She died on 18 May 1877 and was buried in old Lexington Cemetery, near Bedford, Taylor County, Iowa. After Lydia's death John gave up his pastorate and devoted his time to his children and the farm. In the fall of 1882 John began to think of going west to Nebraska. He would take the older boys with him and take out a homestead. The area that interested him most was north of the Niobrara River. They went there in the spring of 1883, homesteading southeast of the village of Springview. They built a 15'x3O' home, made of logs with a sod roof and brown tarpaper. John retumed in July 1883 to Iowa to bring out the rest of his family. John's mother begged that he leave behind his seven-year old daughter Edna, who was weak from an apparent bout with spinal meningitis. John responded by saying that "I would rather bury her along the trail than leave this dear child of mine behind". Life was hard in this new country and the Blakelys encountered many trials as they improved the original homestead. John planted a fruit orchard and built several outbuildings for his farm. He also was actively involved in religious work from the outset, being the first Baptist preacher in Keya Paha County. In 1913 his health began to fail and he made his home with his children. John passed away on 16 February 1923 in Springview, Keha Paha County, Nebraska. He was buried in Springview Cemetery. bib: "The Charles Blackley Family of Knox County, Tennessee, Vol. I" by Gregory M. Perry, Amundsen Publishing Co., Decorah, IA, 1991; Jefferson County Records;

*Notes for AMOS LEMMONS: Amos Lemmons was born on 2 July 1808 in Montgomery County, Virginia, the son of John and Elizabeth Morgan Lemmons. In 1820 John Lemmons and his family were residents of Warren County, Tennessee. Soon after his nineteenth birthday, Amos Lemmons married Margaret Blakely on 25 July 1827 in Warren County, Tennessee. Their first child Elizabeth Lemmons was born on 2 July 1828. Alexander Blakely Lemmons, second child of Amos and Margaret Blakely Lemmons, was born in Warren County, Tennessee on 13 March 1830. When Alexander was about one year old, the family moved to Morgan County, Illinois with Charles and Licettee Blakely and farmed there until the spring of 1836. John A. Lemmons, Sarah B. Lemmons and George Washington Lemmons were all born in Morgan County, Illinois. The family then moved to Jefferson County, Iowa with Isaac Blakely, being among the first pioneers of that area. Amos Lemmons and his family settled on the southeast quarter of section 27 in what is now Round Prairie Township The winter of 1836-37 was a terribly severe one, and the cabins of the settlers were poor protection against the wintry blasts. Snow commenced to fall early in November, and fell to a great depth and continued to cover the ground until the first spring month was well advanced, so that it was with difficulty that men could get around to attend to their domestic duties or prosecute the plans laid out for the "campaign" of the spring and summer. The trails leading toward the settlements in Henry County and the trading-places on the Mississippi River were so blockaded as to render travel by teams almost, if not quite, impossible. Provisions grew scarce, and suffering from hunger followed. Among the settlers already mentioned, was the family of Amos Lemon (sic), consisting of his wife and five children. Mr. Lemon was a preacher of the Baptist faith, and had but little of this world's goods, preferring rather to lay up his treasure in heaven "where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt." He came to found a home in the land of the Iowas for his wife and little ones, but came too late to sow a crop of any kind. He brought but a small supply of provisions, expecting no doubt, to be able to visit the trading-places before mentioned to procure provisions as the needs of his family demanded. But the winter came and the snow fell so as to render such trips beyond the power of human endurance. The scanty stock of provisions disappeared day by day until the last crust of food was gone, and the family compelled to resort to the bark of slippery-elm as the means of supporting life. It is said they actually subsisted in that way for several weeks before their condition became known, and relief rendered. "Me ordeal was so trying that in pity and anxiety for her suffering, hungry children, the mother's reason partially gave way, and from which she did not fully recover for many a long, weary month." Amos and Margaret's children Effie B. Lemmons, Amos K. Lemmons, and Jacob Spainhower Lemmons were born in Jefferson county, Iowa. Amos and Margaret were charter members of the Round Prairie Primitive Baptist congregation. On 30 April 1846 Amos Lemmons was ordained as a Baptist Minister by Elders Alexander Blakeley and Jacob Spainhower. Sometime between 1842-1847 Margaret died. Her place of burial is not known, but was probably in Upper Richwoods cemetery. On 12 Jan. 1847, Amos Lemmons, 38 married Mrs. Nancy Hawk, 27. Both were residents of Pennsylvania Township, Jefferson County, Iowa. Apparently Nancy Hawk Lemmons died soon thereafter. On 20 March 1849, Amos Lemmons, 40 married Mrs. Nancy Sutherland, 32 at the house of Henry Sutherland probably in Jefferson County, Iowa. They were married by Jacob Spainhour. The couple moved to Ioka, Jackson Township, Keokuk County, Iowa in about 1850 and eventually had six children: Isaac N. Lemmons, Jane Lemmons, Martha Lemmons, David Lemmons, Lesitta Lemmons and Mary Lemmons. By 1860 Amos Lemmons had real estate holdings worth $2,600 and a personal estate worth $800. On 21 January 1862, Nancy C. Sutherland Lemmons, Amos Lemmons' third wife, died at Ioka, Keokuk County, IA. Amos Lemmons died on 28 March 1863. bib: information from James Norine; information from Pat Allsman Lemmons; information from Jacob Felde; manuscript of Ruth Heller; "The Charles Blakely Family of Knox County, Tennessee, Vol. I" by Gregory M.

*Notes for ALEXANDER BLAKELY LEMMONS: Alexander Blakely Lemmons was born in Warren County, Tennessee on 13 Mar. 1830. Alexander was about one year old when his family moved to Morgan County, Illinois and farmed there until he was six years old. They then moved to a wilderness home in Jefferson County, Iowa. It must have seemed exciting to him as the Indians had just left that part of the country that spring. The family lived in Jefferson County the next 14 years. In 1850 they moved to Keokuk County, near Richland. In 1848 Alexander ran away from home and worked for a while. In 1850 he married Elizabeth McCuin. In 1852 a son was born and died. That marriage didn't work out and Alexander and Elizabeth got a divorce. He moved to Henry County and on 11 November 1853 he married Sarah Ann Brittian at the Courthouse in Mt. Pleasant. Alexander moved to Grundy County, Missouri near Trenton in 1856. For the next five years he farmed in the summer and was a rail maker in the winter. In 1861 he enlisted as a private in Co. M 7th Cavalry Mo. Volunteers in the Union Army. After his discharge in 1862 Alex moved back to his farm. In 1856 he was ordained a minister by the Little Flock Church of Separate Baptists of Henry County, Iowa. In 1877 the family moved to Republic County, Kansas where he took out a homestead. There he built a rock house and worked mostly at cutting rock and building. In about 1890 Alex started a store in Harlan, Smith County, Kansas which he ran until 1906. He sold out and bought a home in Cleo Springs, Major County, Oklahoma. He died there on 3 March 1908 and was buried in Mount Zion Cemetery, west of Fairview, Oklahoma.

* Notes for JACOB SPAINHOWER LEMMONS: Jacob Spainhower Lemmons was born in Jefferson County, Iowa on 4 December 1842. His parents were some of the earliest settlers in Iowa. His mother died when he was quite young. His father married twice after her death. Jacob moved with his father and second stepmother to Keokuk County, Iowa where he grew to maturity. On 13 August 1862, Jacob Lemmons a resident of Pella, Marion County, Iowa enrolled at Pella, Iowa as a private in Company G, 33rd Regiment, Iowa Infantry Volunteers for a term of 3 years. He was mustered in on 4 September 1862. He was described as being five feet nine and one-half inches tall with a light complexion, blue eyes and light or sandy colored hair. He was a farmer by occupation. On 20 November 1862 the regiment left for St. Louis, Missouri. The regiment left for Columbus, Kentucky on 21 December 1862, arriving on the 24th, where it was immediately engaged in building earthworks, the men without shelter, sleeping on the bare ground in the mud and rain. on 3 January 1863 the regiment returned to Columbus, the enemy failing to attack, as expected. On 8 January 1863 the regiment embarked for Helena, Arkansas, arriving on the 13th, where several expeditions were made. Jacob Lemmons participated in the battle of Helena in April of 1863. It was reported Colonel Hood had declared he would take his dinner, July 4th, in Helena, Arkansas. The regiment at once prepared to give him a hearty reception, and at two o'clock in the morning were called out to receive him. The contest lasted until eleven o'clock when Hood was driven back toward Little Rock, and the Thirty-third remained masters of the position, having acquitted itself bravely. It had five hundred men engaged, the enemy over two thousand. The Thirty-third captured as many prisoners as it had in action. Jacob Lemmons was left sick at Duvals Bluffs, Arkansas on 20 Aug. 1863 but had rejoined his company by September. On 10 September 1863, they captured Little Rock. There the regiment built log barracks and remained until March, 1864. The regiment started on the southwestern Arkansas expedition in March of 1864. They fought at Prairie d'Anne, in Hempstead County, Arkansas. On 2 April 1864, General Steele decided to march on Camden with his division. This became known to the enemy, and the race was a lively one. The first engagement was had at Elkins's Ford on 4 April 1864. The second was at Prairie D'Anne on 10 April 1864. The Thirty-third entered Camden on the evening of 15 April 1864, where for five days there were no rations, the men subsisting on four ears of corn per day, which they ground in hand mills and made into cakes. The Battle of Jenkin's Ferry on 30 April 1864, was the great battle of the expedition. The regiment, with the division had reached Saline River, on its return to Little Rock, on the evening before. The enemy were in force in the rear, while in front was a swollen river and no bridges. The battle began in the morning and lasted until near noon, when the enemy retired. It was during the evening's last charge that Colonel Rice was wounded in the foot. He died from the effects of that wound on the following August 6th. It was also at either the battle of Elkin's Ford or Jenkin's Ferry that Colonel Mackey was severely wounded in the arm. The loss of the regiment was severe being one hundred and twenty-three. Jacob Lemmons participated in the Battle of Jenkin's Ferry 3 May 1864. The regiment arrived at Little Rock on 30 April 1864 where it remained on garrison duty during the year. Jacob Lemmons was present on the Company Muster Roll as being on extra duty as Company Cook until October of 1864. On 13 January 1965 was sent as a guard on an expedition to Alton, Illinois with some prisoners. He was was promoted to corporal on 24 March 1865. In March and April 1865, Jacob Lemmons participated in the Seige of Spanish Fort. The regiment started for New Orleans on 14 April 1865, thence to Navy Cove, Alabama, where it joined a successful expedition against Mobile. Thence it moved to Whistler's Station and McIntosh's Bluff, Alabama where it remained until June. The regiment started for Brazos Island, Texas, thence up the Rio Grande to Bagdad, thence to New Orleans. The regiment was mustered out in New Orleans, Louisiana on 17 July 1865, except the three year's recruits, who were transferred to the Thirty-fourth regiment, and unusual act which received the firm protest of Colonel Mackey. The casualities of the regiment were: 26 killed in action, 236 died of wounds and disease, 164 discharged for various causes, 166 wounded, 73 taken prisoner, 27 transferred to other regiments, and 430 mustered out. Jacob Lemmons was mustered out with his regiment as a corporal on 17 July 1865. After the war,. (told to Dorothy Lemmons Snyder by Samuel Jacob Lemmons) After being mustered out of the service, Jacob Lemmons lived in Iowa, Wyoming, Colorado and then moved to Kansas. Apparently he had a saloon in Denver near the railroad tracks for a time. On 8 May 1872, Jacob Lemmons married Harriett Seward at the residence of John D. Wright in Mills County, Iowa. The ceremony was performed by A. P. Powell, Justice of the Peace. Witnesses were John D. Wright and L. D. Seward, the father of the bride. Harriett's father, L.D. Seward had to give consent because Harriett was 15 years old. Apparently the newlywed couple set up housekeeping in Mills County, Iowa for a time for Ida Francis Lemmons, their first child, was born there on 13 February 1874. Their second child, George Washington Lemmons, was born in Monona County, Iowa on 23 September 1876. The family moved to a homestead in Custer Township, Mitchell County, Kansas in 1877. In 1880 Jacob had a farm worth $1,500, tilled 40 acres and produced $300 worth of crops. He owned two horses and two cows. Jacob and Harriett's third child, Lorenzo Dow Lemmons was born on 1 May 1880. Jacob Lemmons received the Patent on his homestead on 15 November 1881. The couple's fourth child, Sarah Grace Lemmons, was born on 3 September 1884 and their fifth child, Eva May Lemmons was born on 2 June 1887. Margaret Elizabeth Lemmons was born on 4 August 1889. In 1893, Jacob and Harriett Lemmons sold their homestead and moved to a rented farm in the Green Valley Community in Cedron Township in northwest Lincoln County, Kansas just a few miles from their original homstead. Their seventh child, Samuel Jacob Lemmons was born there on 28 August 1894. Jacob and Harriett Lemmons moved to Lucas, Kansas in 1916. Jacob Spainhower Lemmons died on 29 August 1920 in Salina, Kansas. He was buried in the Lucas, Kansas Cemetery. bib: Civil War records, Civil War pension file, National Archives; National Tribune; History of Jefferson County, Iowa," by Charles J.

*Notes for HARRIETT SEWARD: Harriett Seward, daughter of L. D. Seward was born in Butler County, Ohio on 8 April 1857. She was of full-blooded Scotch heritage. Her mother died when Harriett was still a child. Her father re-married and Harriett moved with her half-brother and half-sister to Lyons Township, Mills County, Iowa sometime before 1866. Harriett's half-sister may have been named Sally Jackson or she may have been Minnie Seward. Her father felt he was unable to care for her so he farmed her out to work as a "bound girl" apparently with the Thomas Crum family who lived one dwelling away from her father in 1870. As a consequence Harriett did not have the opportunity to acquire a good education and never learned to read or write but she became an excellent cook and seamstress. Harriett Seward married Jacob Lemmons at the residence of John D. Wright in Mills County, Iowa on 8 May 1872. The ceremony was performed by A. P. Powell, Justice of the Peace. Witnesses were John D. Wright and L. D. Seward, the father of the bride. Harriett's father, L.D. Seward had to give consent because Harriett was fifteen years old.

*Notes for JOHN JACK PATTON: John Patton was born 13 October 1821 in Jefferson County, Tennessee. When 10 years of age he moved with his father to Jackson County, Missouri, where his father took up 600 acres of land in the East Bottoms, where Kansas City now stands. Here he lived until 1843, when he traded 80 acres he had accumulated for land in Nodaway County, Missouri, getting out just in time to escape the big flood of 1844. It caught the senior Patton, and when the water reached the joists of the house, he decided it was time to move, so he almost gave the land away, and followed his son to Nodaway County. A brother-in-law who refused to let the Missouri wash his courage away, held on to his land, and sold it for $1,000 an acre. Jack Patton was married in Kansas City on 12 May 1846 to Sarah Bowers, and farmed in Nodaway county until August 1846, when he went to Leavenworth to form a regiment and engage in the Mexican War. His good luck began here, for though he was in many skirmishes, he was never wounded. In the winter of 1847, he made another trade and moved to Gentry county, but moving from one county to another did not quicken the blood; there was not excitement in it, and in 1849 he engaged to drive an ox team to California. There were twenty-seven wagons in the party, and they were six months on the road. The geographies and school histories picture these pioneers of the plains attacked by Indians, but the real enemy was cholera, which marked the trail of the little band across the desert with grave after grave. Uncle Jack had a touch of it, and his partner and brother died of it, and were buried by the side of the Big Platte river in Nebraska. He was gone from home over four years, and though he tried prospecting, all the money he made in California was in keeping a miners' store on the south fork of Feather river, in Yuba county. He returned with $10,000, and found that his wife had died in his absence in 1850 leaving two children. Jack wandered so much it's confusing to learn when he was at home, but he seems to have returned to Missouri in 1853, to have married again on 15 January 1855 to Almeda Jane Sego, granddaughter of Jesse Blakely, and to have gone away again, this time in answer to the call of the South for men, in 1861. In May of that year Patton and a man named Dick Childs raised a battalion of 400 men in Daviess and Gentry countries, known as the state guards. Patton was major, and served until January 1862, when the men were disbanded and reorganized in the Confederate service in Colonel Gage's Second Missouri regular cavalry, with Patton as captain. The first battle at Blue Mills was a Confederate victory. Shortly after Patton started south with the army, he learned that his son, a boy of fourteen, was following him. Recognizing the fellow spirit of wandering in his son, he did not send him back, but kept him with him until his capture in 1863 at Champion Hill, Mississippi. The boy was in some of the hardest battles of the war, fighting to the last ditch with his father. Shortly after they left home, the boy was taken with typhoid. The army was then camped near Newtonia, Missouri, and for three weeks Patton nursed him at the home of a farmer between the lines, and fought death as he never fought it at any time on the field of battle. The boy recovered, and was soon so hearty that the great problem was to get him enough to eat. Neither father nor son had a scratch to show for their experience during the war, though the father had a horse shot and killed under him. When Patton was taken prisoner, he was sent to Johnson's Island, at Sandusky, Ohio, where 3,300 men were confined, but the hardships were not as bad as tradition reports. The fare was not bad except for three months when they were fed on retaliatory rations. They were allowed mail from home; there was a store at the prison, and when their folks sent them money, they bought little pecunuries. When paroled in March ... Patton was sent by boat to Baltimore and then by train to Richmond, Virginia, where he was turned loose, without a friend and without a cent. He spent two nights in Libby prison for shelter, and walked all the way to Mobile. From there he walked to Memphis, and friends gave him $5, and assisted him to reach his home, which he reached, heartsick, footsore, to find that all he had to show for the time spent in the service was his expertise, a wife, a baby, two cows, two beds and a stiff-necked horse; he was worth $21,000 when he enlisted. Patton moved to Armour in March 1867, where he earned a living chopping wood on Sugar Creek. Later, through the influence of friends, he got back 400 acres of the 800 acres he held in Gentry county before the war, and traded it for 145 acres at Armour. He built a home there, gradually added to his land, and has lived ever since in the same place. It is the big white house just south of the depot at Armour. All the land stretching to the north as far as the eye can see, and all the big hills to the south of the house, belong to "Uncle Jack." Here he is content in the twilight of his days, surrounded by the love and devotion of his son Sterling and his son's wife. There are two grandchildren in the family. Another son, Ambrose, is clerk of the circuit court of St. Joseph. A daughter lives in Montana, and the son who followed him to war is still wandering. When last heard of, he was in the mountains of Arizona. "Uncle Jack" is in excellent health, though he didn't "winter" as well as usual. His eyesight is fairly good - he takes six daily papers, and reads all of them, and though he has a cupboard full of false teeth he eats without any, preferring to "gum it." He is particularly proud of his fine head of hair, both of his sons being bald. There are not many in this section who have owned slaves, but when a division was made of the property of "Uncle Jack's" father, ten negroes were sold on the block in St. Joseph, three years before the war, and Uncle Jack at one time owned seven. The late Andy Parker was one of them. Jim Parker, of Leavenworth, still living was another. Jim Parker was appraised at $1,000 at the sale, but he cried so hard for Patton to buy him that he paid $1,500 for him. John died 8 May 1908 in St. Joseph, Buchanan County, Missouri and was buried in Sugar Creek Cemetery in Rushville, Missouri. bib: "The Charles Blackley Family of Knox County, Tennessee, Vol. I" by Gregory M.

37. JOHN JACK4 PATTON (MARTHA3 BLAKELY, CHARLES2 BLACKLEY, JAMES?1 BLAKELY) was born October 13, 1821 in Jefferson County, Tennessee, and died May 08, 1908 in St. Joseph, Buchanan County, Missouri.

*Notes for JOHN JACK PATTON: John Patton was born 13 October 1821 in Jefferson County, Tennessee. When 10 years of age he moved with his father to Jackson County, Missouri, where his father took up 600 acres of land in the East Bottoms, where Kansas City now stands. Here he lived until 1843, when he traded 80 acres he had accumulated for land in Nodaway County, Missouri, getting out just in time to escape the big flood of 1844. It caught the senior Patton, and when the water reached the joists of the house, he decided it was time to move, so he almost gave the land away, and followed his son to Nodaway County. A brother-in-law who refused to let the Missouri wash his courage away, held on to his land, and sold it for $1,000 an acre. Jack Patton was married in Kansas City on 12 May 1846 to Sarah Bowers, and farmed in Nodaway county until August 1846, when he went to Leavenworth to form a regiment and engage in the Mexican War. His good luck began here, for though he was in many skirmishes, he was never wounded. In the winter of 1847, he made another trade and moved to Gentry county, but moving from one county to another did not quicken the blood; there was not excitement in it, and in 1849 he engaged to drive an ox team to California. There were twenty-seven wagons in the party, and they were six months on the road. The geographies and school histories picture these pioneers of the plains attacked by Indians, but the real enemy was cholera, which marked the trail of the little band across the desert with grave after grave. Uncle Jack had a touch of it, and his partner and brother died of it, and were buried by the side of the Big Platte river in Nebraska. He was gone from home over four years, and though he tried prospecting, all the money he made in California was in keeping a miners' store on the south fork of Feather river, in Yuba county. He returned with $10,000, and found that his wife had died in his absence in 1850 leaving two children. Jack wandered so much it's confusing to learn when he was at home, but he seems to have returned to Missouri in 1853, to have married again on 15 January 1855 to Almeda Jane Sego, granddaughter of Jesse Blakely, and to have gone away again, this time in answer to the call of the South for men, in 1861. In May of that year Patton and a man named Dick Childs raised a battalion of 400 men in Daviess and Gentry countries, known as the state guards. Patton was major, and served until January 1862, when the men were disbanded and reorganized in the Confederate service in Colonel Gage's Second Missouri regular cavalry, with Patton as captain. The first battle at Blue Mills was a Confederate victory. Shortly after Patton started south with the army, he learned that his son, a boy of fourteen, was following him. Recognizing the fellow spirit of wandering in his son, he did not send him back, but kept him with him until his capture in 1863 at Champion Hill, Mississippi. The boy was in some of the hardest battles of the war, fighting to the last ditch with his father. Shortly after they left home, the boy was taken with typhoid. The army was then camped near Newtonia, Missouri, and for three weeks Patton nursed him at the home of a farmer between the lines, and fought death as he never fought it at any time on the field of battle. The boy recovered, and was soon so hearty that the great problem was to get him enough to eat. Neither father nor son had a scratch to show for their experience during the war, though the father had a horse shot and killed under him. When Patton was taken prisoner, he was sent to Johnson's Island, at Sandusky, Ohio, where 3,300 men were confined, but the hardships were not as bad as tradition reports. The fare was not bad except for three months when they were fed on retaliatory rations. They were allowed mail from home; there was a store at the prison, and when their folks sent them money, they bought little pecunuries. When paroled in March ... Patton was sent by boat to Baltimore and then by train to Richmond, Virginia, where he was turned loose, without a friend and without a cent. He spent two nights in Libby prison for shelter, and walked all the way to Mobile. From there he walked to Memphis, and friends gave him $5, and assisted him to reach his home, which he reached, heartsick, footsore, to find that all he had to show for the time spent in the service was his expertise, a wife, a baby, two cows, two beds and a stiff-necked horse; he was worth $21,000 when he enlisted. Patton moved to Armour in March 1867, where he earned a living chopping wood on Sugar Creek. Later, through the influence of friends, he got back 400 acres of the 800 acres he held in Gentry county before the war, and traded it for 145 acres at Armour. He built a home there, gradually added to his land, and has lived ever since in the same place. It is the big white house just south of the depot at Armour. All the land stretching to the north as far as the eye can see, and all the big hills to the south of the house, belong to "Uncle Jack." Here he is content in the twilight of his days, surrounded by the love and devotion of his son Sterling and his son's wife. There are two grandchildren in the family. Another son, Ambrose, is clerk of the circuit court of St. Joseph. A daughter lives in Montana, and the son who followed him to war is still wandering. When last heard of, he was in the mountains of Arizona. "Uncle Jack" is in excellent health, though he didn't "winter" as well as usual. His eyesight is fairly good - he takes six daily papers, and reads all of them, and though he has a cupboard full of false teeth he eats without any, preferring to "gum it." He is particularly proud of his fine head of hair, both of his sons being bald. There are not many in this section who have owned slaves, but when a division was made of the property of "Uncle Jack's" father, ten negroes were sold on the block in St. Joseph, three years before the war, and Uncle Jack at one time owned seven. The late Andy Parker was one of them. Jim Parker, of Leavenworth, still living was another. Jim Parker was appraised at $1,000 at the sale, but he cried so hard for Patton to buy him that he paid $1,500 for him. John died 8 May 1908 in St. Joseph, Buchanan County, Missouri and was buried in Sugar Creek Cemetery in Rushville, Missouri. bib: "The Charles Blackley Family of Knox County, Tennessee, Vol. I" by Gregory M.

38. JAMES4 BLAKELY (JOSEPH MARTIN3, CHARLES2 BLACKLEY, JAMES?1 BLAKELY) was born November 26, 1812 in Knoxville, Knox County, Tennessee, and died January 29, 1913 in probably Brownsville, Oregon. He married SARAH DICK WFT Est. 1843-1875. She was born November 24, 1815 in Jefferson County, Tennessee, and died June 14, 1888 in Brownsville, Oregon.

*Notes for JAMES BLAKELY: James Blakely was born 26 Nov 1812 in Knoxville, Knox County, Tennessee. He worked hard on the home farm, and at irregular intervals attended the remotely located schoolhouse with its puncheon floors and greased paper windows. He grew up a bare-footed boy, but with good health and a great abundance of spirit and vitality. He worked for his father until he was twenty-two years old, and then hired out to a nearby farmer, because his many brothers and sisters could do all the needed work on the home place. He married early in life, marrying Sarah Dick, a native of Jefferson County, Tennessee. Sarah was bom 24 November 1815 and was three years younger than her husband. She died in Brownsville, Oregon on 14 June 1888, at the age of seventy-four years. After his marriage, James rented a piece of land near the home place, and in 1838 came overland with his father and remainder of the family to Missouri, taking up a government farm of 160 acres. This undertaking did not prove particularly profitable, so he soon sold out and leased a place for a couple of years. To this quiet inland farm came news of awakening possibilities in the far West, which seemed to be his golden opportunity. It did not take him long to purchase oxen and otherwise equip for the long journey. This pioneer of Oregon, together with his Uncle Hugh Leeper Brown, and family, started from CIay County, Missouri in April 1846. For months they travelled on and on, over the plains and deserts, crossing mountain barriers, swift mountain streams, and sullen rivers, camping at night with their wagons together in a circle. One day, Jame's little son William was run over by a wagon. After picking up the supposed lifeless form and handing it to a bystander, he said in a quavering voice "I cannot go on and leave my little son buried here in this desert." But little William revived and they swung a feather bed up on the bows of the wagon for him and proceeded on their journey. Once when the children were all very sick and in need of fresh milk, the wagon train stopped for the night, and because James Blakely was a devout man, he began to pray for a goat or cow so the children of the wagon train might have the fresh milk they needed. The next morning when they arose they found a cow had wandered into camp sometime during the night so the children had their fresh milk. After staying in the camp until they felt strong enough, the company decided to push forward once again. Sarah Blakely wanted to take the cow with them, but James said "no", that they should leave the cow, for there would be other travelers coming along the way and they too would need fresh milk. The Barlow Pass around the base of Mt. Hood had scarcely been completed when the Blakely train arrived at The Dalles, so the emigrants had the distinction of being the first to travel it. The emigrants made no stop but came on south through the Willamette Valley, keeping along the eastern edges of the hills, and on 9 October 1846 arrived at the ford of the Calapooya River. The land was very fertile, raising an abundance of grain. The grass was very abundant, often growing to a height as to hide stock grazing through it. There was heavy brush along the river, but the hills that are now covered with timber were bare at that time caused by the Indians keeping it burned off. He took up a donation claim upon a portion of which Brownsville is now located, and built a little one-room house in the wilderness. The Calapooya Indians were a very peaceable tribe according to James Blakely. They camped along the river banks principally. After the high waters and freshets, the squaws would go along the bank and kill the mice which climbed onto the bushes. They would strike them on the heads killing them, then throw them into their sacks. These sacks they wove out of a kind of grass, sometimes five or six feet long. The mice were taken to camp and roasted in hot ashes, then boiled in water and used for food. Gophers were also used for food, and any stock the Indians found dead would all be taken to camp for food. They hung them up on poles near the fire and the creepers continually dropped, but it was never too rotten for the Indians to eat. The squaws dug camas roots, pounded them up and made bread. In 1848 the pioneer settlers of Brownsville found themselves in need of a religious leader and an educator, so a delegation was sent to Oregon City to prevail on Reverend H.H. Spalding to come to Linn County. In 1836 Rev. Spalding and his bride, accompanying Dr. Marcus Whitman and his bride and W.H. Gray, crossed the plains to locate mission stations in the far West and form a nucleus of settlement for American occupancy of the Oregon County. Their work was brought abruptly and tragically to a close by the Whitman massacre in 1847, when at least 14 persons were brutally murdered at Waiilatpu, near Walla Walla, Washington, by the Cayuse Indians. At the time of the massacre, Rev. Spalding had left his mission at Lapwai, Idaho, going up into the Umatilla country to visit the Indians there. On his return, he was just on the point of stopping at Waiilatpu, but was fortunately warned, and rode safely back to Lapwai. The plan to come to Brownsville pleased Rev. Spalding and he took a donation land claim just south of the Calapooya, adjoining the homesteads of Brown and James Blakely. In the winter of 1848 the settlers began the erection of the schoolhouse which was to serve as an early day auditorium for the pioneers in many meetings, civic and religious. Rev. Spalding resided on his claim for 20 years, teaching school, preaching, writing, serving as County School Superintendent, Indian Agent, but all the while engaging in the business of stock raising and farming. Then in 1871 the old missionary, stooped with age and broken in health, and after 24 years away from the scenes of his first missionary labors in the West, returned to Idaho to continue his work among the Nez Perces. He was received joyfully by the native tribes and he conducted revivals wherein it is said he baptized 694 Nez Perces and about 300 Spokanes and Umatillas. In March 1856 James Blakely organized a company of volunteers: Company D of the Recruited Battalion, Second Regiment, of Oregon Mounted Volunteers commanded by Colonel John Kelsey, which was called into the service of the Territory of Oregon by a proclamation of the governor, 11 March 1856. He served from 4 April 1856 to 3 July 1856. He marched at the head of his company, as elected Captain, to the seat of hostilities in the Rogue River country against the Indians. Here again he distinguished himself by his energetic prosecution of the duties that fell to him. During the Rogue River Wars, Captain Blakely was ordered to select twelve men of his command and march as best they could during the night through a mountainous and timbered country in order to intercept and disperse a band of hostile Indians about to join the main band. He related his feelings on the march as seemingly foolishness to send a handful of men against a band of Indians at least ten times their number and possibly twenty times, but "it was not his to reason why" and such an order from a superior officer, in the presence of a hostile enemy could not be disobeyed. As they marched through the long night, they thought of home, as most soldiers do at such times, and wondered if they would ever see their loved ones again. About four o'clock in the morning he halted his little company under cover of timber just in sight of the Indian wickiups and proceeded to reconnoiter the sleeping enemy's position. Ascertaining the most advantageous point of attack he dispersed his men accordingly and awaited sufficient light, for the struggle must of necessity be short, sharp, and decisive, and every bullet must do its work thoroughly and well. Soon daylight began to stream over the mountain tops and on the Indian camp but no warrior came forth and even the Indian dogs did not seem to be in evidence. He gave the order to advance across the opening and soon found that the "bird had flown" and probably the evening before had joined the main band and were now ready to assist in the coming fray. Destroying the Indian camp, he hastily rejoined his main company and led them in the direction of the supposed junction of the Indian bands. Here he encountered them in full force in a patch of timber across an intervening creek, at which point the Indians had thrown out skirmish lines along a mountain side opposite Captain Blakely's advancing company, where from behind trees and rocks they fired with poor aim at his men. These Indians on the mountain side had to be dislodged and driven away before advancing upon the main force. This was the first time his command had been under fire and he was amused to see some of the boys trying to dodge the Indian bullets. Placing a few good marksmen of his company in an advantageous position, they soon cleared the mountain side and then with the main company he dashed across the creek into the timber and soon had the entire band of Indians on the move. At the end of three months arduous work, Chief John had been conquered and a treaty signed with the Indians. Captain Blakely marched with his company back to Brownsville, and arrived there on 4 July 1856, receiving an enthusiastic celebration in his honor from the citizens. His favorite expression and counsel to his men during the campaign was "Boys, don't get shot in the back." With his Uncle Hugh Brown, he established the first mercantile store in Brownsville, which later became G. C. Cooley & Company. James Blakely and his son William ran a freighting business in the spring of 1862, both driving an outfit. They took sugar, flour, bacon and other supplies to the mines at Auburn. James Blakely was a prominent member of the House of Representatives of the State of Oregon of the Session of 1872, having subscribed to the principles of the Democratic Party all of his life. For two terms he was a member of the city council of Brownsville, and for many years served as school director and road supervisor. He was fraternally connected with the Masons. When the Native Sons of Oregon established a Cabin at Brownsville they named it in honor of him. He was a lifelong member of the Presbyterian Church and assisted in its organization in Brownsville, taking an active part in its affairs and attended services faithfully to within a few months of his death, when failing health compelled him to stay at home. On 26 November 1912 James Blakely celebrated his 100th birthday, surrounded by his children and his grandchildren to the fifth generation, at the home of his son, Henry Blakely. Feeble in body, but perfectly clear in mind he rounded out a century of life, enjoying an event which marks the life of few men. He died on 29 January 1913 after an illness of several months. He and his wife were buried in Brownsville bib: "The Charles Blackley Family of Knox County, Tennessee, Vol. I" by Gregory M. Perry, Amundsen Publishing Co., Decorah, IA, 1991;

40. FELIX4 BLAKELY (JOSEPH MARTIN3, CHARLES2 BLACKLEY, JAMES?1 BLAKELY) was born March 15, 1821 in Jefferson County, Tennessee, and died December 13, 1915 in Atchison, Kansas. He married (1) ANN LACKEY January 04, 1844 in Andrew County, Missouri. She was born WFT Est. 1806-1830, and died WFT Est. 1849-1918. He married (2) CHARITY JANE SHOUGH September 27, 1868. She was born WFT Est. 1818-1851, and died WFT Est. 1873-1938.

* Notes for FELIX BLAKELY: Felix Blakely was born 15 March 1821, in Jefferson County, Tennessee. A biography on Felix was supposedly published March 16, 1911 in the Atchison, Kansas newspaper. The original was found by Mrs. Rollin Hedrick and was lost in a house fire. Nobody has since been able to find the article. One of the greatest characters in Kansas is Felix Blakely, who yesterday celebrated his 90th birthday. Who ever heard of a man of that age, or any other age for that matter, who knows when he is done talking and who makes a specialty of not annoying people and tries to be of as little trouble as possible? And do you know of a man who has lived within two miles of Atchison for 17 years, who has never come to town just to load, and who has come to town only when he goes to the station to take a train out of town? These are only a few of the unusual characteristics of Felix Blakely. Sometimes old acquaintances call to see him. If he is in his room he will go to the parlor, talk to them politely until he has "said his say" and will then get up and leave. If he should be out on the lawn or in the orchard and an acquaintance approaches him, he will receive them politely and will then leave if his audience does not. He is down and out as far as usefulness is concerned, and knows it. He never tries to show how spry he is or what feats he can accomplish for a man of his age but goes quietly about the house and premises attending strictly to his own business. Last year he decided to make a trip to California. He didn't ask anybody's advice about trains, the Grand Canyon, the Northern or Southern route. He went to the depot, bought a ticket, got on the train, and went. After he got to California he decided to go to Oregon to visit a brother, Capt. James Blakely, who is 99 years old. The man who sold him the ticket routed him wrong and he didn't get to see his brother, so he came right home, traveling six days and nights in a common chair car. There was no one to meet him when he left the train in Atchison, so he "footed" it home. About once a year he goes to Leavenworth to visit another daughter, who lives a few miles out of the city. When he arrives at his daughter's home, he stays there until he is ready to return to Atchison, and never goes into Leavenworth to see the sights. Mrs. Wells has often tried to coax him to come to Atchison to attend the moving picture shows, the theater, or entertainments at Forest Park, but he refuses. He has no business in Atchison and has no desire to see the newfangled methods of entertainment nor any desire to make new acquaintances; he wants to stay home and stay at home he does. He reads without glasses and reads everything he gets his hands on. His stomach is as good as his eyes. After eating a hearty supper he will return to his room and play solitaire. His "game" will be finished by about II o'clock, then he will eat a lunch which he took to his room with him, and will then retire. He has been a great smoker for years and has no notion of quitting on the theory that it might prolong life. Felix Blakely is never a kicker. If things don't quite suit him at the Wells home, he gets on a train and goes to Leavenworth to stay with his daughter there. If he gets the notion that it is about time to move, he does, and returns to Atchison, and nobody knows why. He has trouble with his feet. They get so hot he can hardly stand it and he gets a bucket of cold water and keeps his feet in it until they are comfortable. In winter he often lets water freeze in a bucket, then breaks the ice, sticks his feet into the water and quietly smokes his pipe until his feet ease up. In summer time his loafing place in the orchard can be found through a pile of shavings made with his knife. Possibly he whittles and thinks over the "good old days" when he was known as one of the greatest gamblers along the Missouri River, and is the only one left of them. With his father and other members of his family he came from Tennessee to Platte City in 1838, when he was 17 years of age, but found that life too monotonous. He married in 1844 and settled on a farm in Nodaway County, Missouri, he allowed his wife to manage the home while he managed the business. His wife was a good manager, and when the Civil War broke out, they had 700 acres of good land, and a number of slaves. Felix Blakely entered the Confederate service and was made a captain. He went through the war, was in battles at Lexington and Pea Ridge. He brought back $30,000 in Confederate money he had won in gambling, but that wasn't worth thirty cents. Just before the war broke out Blakely's wife died, leaving him with nine children. Not long after he returned from the war, he married again and had six children by his second wife. Here are some gambling experiences he tells about. One day he went over to a neighbor, Wash Campbell, and they played a game of seven-up, a horse being at stake for winning the game. They played all night and when morning came Blakely had one dollar left. He was a great gambler, and so was Campbell. Campbell had a rooster he could bet him on. Blakely bet him he had a rooster that could whip it in three fights, naked spurs, for $200, $100, and $50. Blakely took his dollar and had a scrub rooster, which won the $50 bets. Once he won $5200 in hours on a $20 ante and had given $3600 to the man he won the money from. In his balmy days Felix Blakely was the best judge of horse flesh, cattle, and hogs in Western Missouri. Felix married Ann Lackey on 4 January 1844 in Andrew County, Missouri. She was the daughter of Jeremiah Lackey and apparently the cousin of Alexander Blakely's wife Sarah. One Sunday morning Ann went to the garden to gather lettuce. She did not see a rattlesnake coiled in the lettuce bed and was bitten. She died shortly afterwards. Felix remarried on 27 September 1868 to Charity Jane Shough. He died on 13 December 1915 in Atchison, Kansas and is buried in King Hill Cemetery in St. Joseph, Missouri. bib: "The Charles Blackley Family of Knox County, Tennessee, Vol. I" by Gregory M.
