RE: Samuel and Emily Blake
Most of the early information I have was from Marie Gouber Ward. She was descended from Emma Rosinia Blake Churchill. (Emma and James are also buried in the Manhattan cemetery). Marie had only a very early pc and did all of her genealogy through documents that she had ordered and interviews with family still alive at the time. She did not have internet access to do research. She died in 2009. I was able to get copies of as much of her volumes of pictures and documents as possible during an afternoon visit with her at her California home. Knowing her, I would be confident of her information being accurate. Since I am not at home, and will not be for several weeks, I am not able to check the copies from her that I may have. Most of the pictures of the Blakes from that era, I got from her. I have not been able to find any of my gr grandfather, Frank Nelson Blake. Anyone in particular you are looking for?

RE: Samuel and Emily Blake
Samuel's father was Gideon Blake. b. Feb 14, 1793, Thornton, Grafton Co., NH. He died after 1871 in Wisc.

Samuel's mother was Johanna Sanborn. b.Feb 2, 1794, Kingston, NH. She died after 1870 in Rumney Co., NH.

Emily's father was Stevens Willey b. May 1, 1793, Ellsworth, Grafton Co., NH. d. Feb 28, 1868, Ellsworth , NH.

Emily's mother was Betsy Avery. b. June 19, 1794. d. Nov 12, 1884 in Plymouth, NH.

This information was given to my by Marie Ward of Rancho Cordova, CA. She has since passed. She had amazing Blake history. Wish I could have had more time to spend with her.

RE: Blake Family
I am sorry I can't help you Jerry. None of these names are in my Blake family. My Blake family originated in England, immigrated to NH, USA late 1630s, then moved to Ontario, Canada in 1790s. They lived in Frontenac County for many generations. My branch moved to Innisfail, Alberta in 1905.

RE: Robert Bartlett
I don't have any problems with my photos being placed on other memorials or used else where. According to CADI Letha was born in West Virginia and her full DoD is 06/20/1954. Her plot info will be the same as Robert's.

RE: Robert Bartlett
You are very welcome. Please note the discrepancy with his birth year. 1891 is the correct one.

RE: Legg Cemetery
Sorry for the wrong picture...
that Tery Legg was her Daughter. I have a hard time
Reading that type of head stone. That was the better of the two pictures that I took that day. I will place them both on her daughters website and you can let me know which to delete.
