Benjamin was born and died in Hopewell Twp., old Hunterdon (now Mercer) Co., NJ. He married Permelia Drake on 2 May 1776.

Benjamin served as a private in Carle's Troop of Light Horse, Hunterdon Militia, during the Revolutionary War. In 1795, he was keeping the Horse & Groom Tavern on what is now Broad Street in Hopewell Borough. He was a surveyor of Highways in 1797-8. He was co-executor of his brother Andrew in 1818. He was referred to as of Hopewell, 1814 & 1830.

Note: I have created a virtual cemetery for Benjamin and his descendants - Blackwell (Benjamin, son of Thomas) Family [Mercer Co., NJ]. -JK
