 INTRODUCTION

 

The descendants of Simon S. and Mary M. (Ambrose) Blake are many and are widely scattered throughout the United States. It is truly a family which typifies the settlement of America from earliest times to the present. While they were not frontiersmen they were among the pioneers who went forth to clear the land, make homes and build towns in areas as they became available for settlement.

 

All of the immigrant ancestors of the Blake-Ambrose family arrived in America before the War of the Revolution and some were among the earliest settlers of New England and Virginia. They came from the troubled places of England and Europe where persecution and privation were prevalent. They landed at the ports of Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Jamestown, but within a generation we find them beginning to converge in the colonies of Pennsylvania and Maryland, the two colonies which granted the greatest freedom to the individual and which were most tolerant in religion. They ultimately gathered in the southern tier of Pennsylvania counties and in Frederick and Washington counties of Maryland before crossing the Endless Mountains in search of land, independence and opportunity.

 

Among them was the spirit of dissent as well as an intensity of religious fervor, and all were avid for land. The Abbott and Walling families were established members of Roger Williams' colony in Rhode Island by 1650; Charles Gorsuch had left the Church of England and Virginia for Maryland where Quakers were accepted; and the Walborns and Batdorfs went through untold hardships in search of the kind of the farming land they had left in Germany finding it eventually in Lancaster and Berks County, Pennsylvania. The Blakes were devout Methodists and in every line descended from the Rev. Burdine Blake there may be found ministers or missionaries. Matthias Ambrose helped establish the first Reformed Church in the Monocacy Valley of Maryland; Christian Walborn and Martin Batdorf did the same for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in the Tulpehocken Valley of Pennsylvania.

 

The chief motive which impelled a settler to leave one home for another was to possess land of his own. As soon as grants from the king to colonizing companies made land available, people were there to occupy it. Movement away from New England began early, partly for religious reasons and partly for more fertile land. The Germans landing in Philadelphia pushed westward quickly for farm land. The soil of Virginia was exhausted from tobacco culture years before the Revolution, and the colonists in their search for a better living, moved north and south before attempting to cross the mountains which faced them on the west.

 

Frederick County, Maryland was the focal point of settlement for our families, thereby illustrating perfectly the statement made by Dieter Cunz that "Frederick County was the first place in America where immigrants from England met and mingled with the continental European." In fact, all our ancestors were in that vicinity or in nearby Pennsylvania at the time of the Revolution, ready at the end of the war to follow the path made by the frontiers­men through the pass made by the Potomac River and its tributaries.

 

The Ambrose family was among the first to settle in Brothersvalley Township, Bedford County, Pennsylvania. At a later date the Blakes joined other Maryland families who had gone to Morrison's Cove in northern Bedford County.

 

A generation passed before the Ambroses ventured another move west, going first to Clinton County, Indiana, and about twenty years later to the far frontier in Wisconsin on the banks of the Kickapoo River in Richland County. The Blake family dispersed in many directions across the newly opened western lands ‑ to Ohio, the Indian Territory, Kentucky, and Wisconsin.

 

In 1854 Simon Blake took up land in the town of Orion, the center of settlement and supplies for Richland County on the northern bank of the Wisconsin River. The first year he was engaged as a clerk in a store and it was no doubt there that he met Mary Ambrose whose family had recently arrived from Indiana. They were married in 1855 and remained in Wisconsin as did many of their children, but others continued on to the Pacific Coast. One such was the family of James E. and Viola (Blake) Mason. Their story of going by covered wagon to Rooks County, Kansas, living there during eight years of drought and catastrophe, then moving on to Spokane County, Washington, again by covered wagon, will be told in a further publication on the Mason-Bradshaw family.

 

As one of their children, born in a sod house in Kansas, I am grateful for the opportunity I have had for doing personally the research which has led back to so many of my immigrant ancestors. My thanks go to the relatives who have supplied information on the more recent generations, especially to Mrs. Arline Ambrose Ringhand of Oregon, Wisconsin, who gathered the Ambrose material; to Mrs. Marian Hadden Jones of Denver who spent many hours in research on the early history of the Blake family; to Glenn A. Lovell of Oak Park, Illinois, for his interest and encouragement; to Mrs. Marian Pratt O'Brien of Santa Monica, California, for technical assistance; and to Glenn Allan Abbey, Foreign Service Officer of the United States Department of State, now deceased, who started me on the search for my ancestors.

 

I wish to express my appreciation for the cooperation and courtesies extended to me by the many County Court Houses, libraries and Historical Societies in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Washington, D.C.
