B.Y. Blodget, a successful and enterprising farmer of the Bitter Root Valley, located three miles south of Grantsdale, was born in Ogden Utah in 1852, a son of Newman Greenleaf Blodget who was born in Vermont, September 22, 1800. He spent his early life in his native state and was there married. His wife died, leaving five children. Mr. Blodget was afterward married to Elizabeth E. Reid, the mother of our subject. They then located in Council Bluffs, Iowa and in 1850 removed to North Ogden Utah where the father died in 1882. He was a farmer and carpenter by occupation and was a Mormon in his religious faith. His widow is still living aged seventy-four years.

In 1871 he came to Montana and engaged in freighting from Bitter Root to Corine and also over the entire settled portion of the Territory, continuing that occupation until the railroad was built. April 10, 1878 Mr. Blodget secured from the Government his present farm of 320 acres. May 22, 1878 he married Miss Adaline Josephine Blodget, a native of Montana and a daughter of Joseph Smith Blodget. Although of the same name they were not related. To this union were born four children, one of whom died in infancy and a son Horace Bliss, died at the age of twelve. The surviving children are : Tyreen Ann and Newman Benjamin. The wife and mother died May 17, 1890 and is buried in the Grantsdale cemetery.
