James Blake Jr. was born January, 1793, in Pennsylvania.

Sarah Ann Unknown was born 1795 in Unknown.

Sarah (Unknown) Blake died about 1798 in Pennsylvania, at age Unknown.

After Sarah died, James married Ann Unknown about 1799 in Pennsylvania. Ann was born about 1783 in Unknown and died before 1834 in Pennsylvania at age Unknown. She was the daughter of Unknown.

James Blake Sr. and his first wife, Sarah (maiden name unknown), had five children according to the family record: Elizabeth, Thomas, James, Henry, Simon. There appears in the Salem Lutheran Church record of Lebanon, PA, the baptism of an Isaac Blakes on Nov. 30, 1798 whose parents were James Blakes and wife. No further record of this child has been found, neither do we find a census record for James for the year 1800 so it may be assumed that wife and child may have died and that he was living with his five children with relatives in Pennsylvania or Maryland. He must have remarried shortly after Sarah's death for Ann is the mother of Burdine who was born Jan. 13, 1800. Another child of this marriage, Maria, died in 1804.

The census of 1810 finds James Blake in Drumore Township.

In 1815 he buys land from George Withers, iron master, for a consideration of $4,208.00, sells some of it in 1823 as a resident of Woodbury Twp., Bedford Co., but he is listed as a non‑resident taxpayer in Drumore Twp., from 1816 to 1828. During this period he was probably working in the furnaces of Huntingdon Co. for we find him and his son, James, in Woodbury township of that county for the 1820 census. These two Woodbury townships should not be confused with each other; Woodbury of Huntingdon Co., and North Woodbury of Bedford are now in Blair Co.

Henry Blake was born November 27, 1815, in Maryland.

Jane P. Bush was born March 22, 1815, in Pennsylvania.

Ann (Unknown) Blake died before 1834 in Pennsylvania at age Unknown.

After Ann died, James Blake Sr. married Polly Unknown about 1835 in Pennsylvania.

Polly was born about 1786 in Pennsylvania and died August 1876 in Pennsylvania at age 90. She was the daughter of Unknown.

James and Polly had no children.

Deeds and Orphans Court Records show that James and his sons James, Simon and Burdine with their families were living in Blair County in the vicinity of Martinsburg by 1830. James's will provided that his wife, Polly, was to receive yearly rental or full possession of lot and two houses in Martinsburg as long as she remained a widow. At her death or marriage said property was to be sold and proceeds to be divided equally between "my three sons: James, Simon, and Burdine. Eldest son, James, to have farm on which I now reside, about 70 acres, also desk. Burdine to have 20 acres of woodland adjoining and lying between his other land and that of son Simon Blake, also silver watch. Son Henry Blake now of Kentucky to receive $1,000.00 to be paid him by Simon in consequence of farm sold to him by me, $150.00 annually until the whole is paid. Grand­son John Righart $100.00 to be paid by Simon one year after date. Grandchild Ann Blake daughter of son Thomas $50.00; grandchild Sarah Blake daughter of Thomas Blake $75.00 also my bureau."

Birth: Jan. 27, 1840, Pennsylvania, USA

Death: Jul. 27, 1927, Wilkes-Barre, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, USA

Annie E Blake was born Jan 27, 1840 to Henry Blake (1815 MD - 1901 Clearfield PA) and Jane Bush (1814 PA - died before 1880). Annie was the 3rd eldest of 10 siblings. The Blake's lived in Clarion PA (1850) and Union, Centre PA (1860). Anna married Rufus D. Stratton (son of John & Jane Hoover Stratton) in 1862 in Centre County.

Annie's older brother James H Blake (1837-1862) married Rufus' Aunt Hannah Stratton (1835-1906, the daughter of William Stratton & Mary Evans) in 1860. James H Blake died in the civil war and is buried in Washington DC (as is Rufus' brother John Stratton 1846-1862).

After Rufus returned from serving in the Civil War, they had 2 sons born in Centre Co - Miles E & Harvey E. The family moved to Iowa in the 1870's along with several of Annie's siblings. The Strattons returned to Pennsylvania residing in Morris, Clearfield PA for a time and then moving to Wilkes-Barre PA around 1901. Her sons both worked for the USPS in Wilkes-Barre.

Anna died at her residence, 374 Academy St, Wilkes-Barre PA on July 27, 1927. Per her obituary she was survived by 2 sons - Harvey at home with whom she resided and Miles of Pittsburgh. Also survived by a sister Mrs. Mary M Arnot of Oregon and a brother Milligan Blake of Emmono PA and several grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Note: Anna is linked to her father buried at Kylertown Cemetery in Clearfield whose grave info is incorrect on this site (age 85, not 35 is engraved in stone and verified by his death record). Her brother T. Mulligan and sister Charilla (Blake) Shoemaker are also buried there.
