Her obituary found in The State 15 November 1899: A dispatch received in the city yesterday morning conveyed the sad intelligence of the death of Mrs. Robt. E. Blakely of this city, which occurred in Greenville. Mrs. Blakely was boarding with Mrs. Marshall in Greenville, so as to be with her only child, Miss Sophie, now attending one of the female colleges there. The remains are to be brought to this city for interment. Mr. Blakely, who is a traveling man, was at Raleigh, N. C., when he received the shocking news of his wife's death. No particulars were given in any of the dispatches received here. Mrs. Blakely was 50 years of age. She was a daughter of the late Maj. S. S. McCully and her mother before her marriage was Miss Sophie Nye. Mrs. Blakely was a woman of many striking traits of character, and was loved by all who knew her.

Found in the same paper: BLAKELEY-The friends and acquaintances of Mr. and Mrs. R. E. BLAKELEY are invited to attend the funeral of the latter at the First Baptist church THIS (Wednesday) AFTERNOON at 4 o'clock. Interment in Elmwood cemetery.

She can be found on the 1850 US Census for Columbia, Richland, S. C. at age 1, living with Samuel S. McCully, 42, Sophia, 33, and Mary E. Nye, 35, and Mary A. Morgan, 35.
