Sept 1851

The body of the late Capt. Blake having been brought on Wednesday night by railroad from New York, where he died, was yesterday committed to the tomb. The obsequies were conducted by Central Lodge of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, of which Capt. Blake was an old and respected member and also by the Grand Lodge. The Washington Light Infantry, formerly commanded by Capt. Blake, formed the funeral escort. The procession was large, consisting chiefly of members of the Order, and proceeded from the late residence of the deceased to the Congress burial ground, where the corpse was interred.

Capt. Blake was buried in R44/248 of Congressional Cemetery on 25 Sept 1851, but removed to Oak Hill Cemetery on 30 Nov 1870.
