TIMELINE


Rodman Cemetery, Roaring Spring, Blair Co., PA.

Data from Geo. H. Liebegott record of headstones in the cemetery at the foot of the mountain, near the paper mill, known as the Rodman cemetery, by Gerald H. Helsel, Letter Feb. 20, 1954. 

SURNAME         NAME                   BORN          DIED         AGE AT DEATH  COMMENT

BLAKE           Sarah Ann              Jun 12, 1847  Aug 26, 1849 2y 2m 14d     d/o James & Sarah BLAKE


The 1790 U. S. Census shows James Blake is the head of household living in Rapho Twp., Lancaster Co., PA. There are 2 males 16 and over; 1 male under 16; and 2 females.

This township at that time lay along the northern boundary of the county and included the first low range of mountains of the Appalachian chain. Tax records list James Blake as a "founderer" which was an important and skilled job in the iron furnaces which dotted South Mountain from Berks County to the Maryland border. A high grade of iron ore was mined in this area from earliest days to the present time. As mines developed we find the "iron master" taking his skilled workers from place to place, so a study of the movement of the Blake family follows along the line of furnaces from the Mt. Hope Furnace Lancaster Co., where his record first appears, to the furnace in Drumore township near the Susquehanna river, thence to Maryland a back again to Pennsylvania in Franklin, Huntingdon and Blair Counties.

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.

James and Ann had two children:

  1. Burdine Blake, Sr.: b. January 13, 1800 in Lancaster Co., PA; d. August 26, 1874 in Martinsburg, Blair Co., PA (age 74)
  2. Maria Blake: b. Unknown in Pennsylvania; d. 1804 in Pennsylvania

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.

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." This will was probated Aug. 28, 1845.
