Death of Mr. Blake

All the acquaintances of Mr. John Kerr Blake will be sorry to learn of his death which occurred in this city at the Blake residence, corner of First avenue and Grape street, Wednesday evening, August 5, 1908, and of tuberculosis after a long and painful illness. Mr. Blake was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Marcus J. Blake, was a carpenter by occupation and had been absent from Gallipolis nearly 25 years, until last spring when he came home ill. For the past six years he had resided at Warren, O. The funeral services will be conducted at the residence by Rev. Arthur P. Cherrington, pastor Grace M.E. Church, Friday morning and the interment will follow by Wetherholt at Mound Hill cemetery. He is survived by two brothers, Aleris, of the hardware firm of Womeldorff & Thomas, and Milton, living in the West, and five sisters, namely, Mrs. John W. Richards of South Chesterville, Maine, and Misses Mary, Pearl, Viola and Anna at home, Miss Viola, a teacher in the public schools and Miss Pearl with the Deardorff & Poore Company, all prominent and well known people, who have the sympathy of an extensive circle of friends.
