He is living in household # 269 with William H. Dodson and family (no relationship given, but it looks more like he is boarding with a couple other men).
December 4, 2012 note from Clifford Mullis, "Here is an interesting tidbit from a biography of his brother Robert Mosby Blakemore: 'Since the war Mr. Blakemore has prospered as a planter, and is one of the prominent men of his parish. His brothers in the Confederate army were William L., who died after the war in Gibson county, Tenn., from the bite of a spider; P. M., who enlisted from Jackson parish, survived the war and died about 1875; Jefferson C., of the Twelfth Louisiana infantry, army of Tennessee, who was an extensive planter of Morehouse parish after the war until his death; and Andrew J., who had the rank of captain and was wounded in the left arm, in consequence of which amputation became necessary in 1871, causing his death.'"
William died on his 41st birthday.
