Birth: Nov. 27, 1848
Death: Jul. 25, 1937

Wilson Blackwell, who had lived in Hopewell about thirty years, died in the 89th year of his age Sunday at his home, 17 Center street, this place [Hopewell]. Mr. Blackwell was a retired farmer and head of a large family.

The survivors are a daughter, Mrs. William J. P. Sked, of Pennington; six sons, James, John, and George, of Hopewell; Edgar, of Pennington; David, of Hopewell-Woodsville road, and Elwood, of Skillman; 12 grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and two brothers, John, of Hillwood Lakes, and Wallingford, of Hopewell.

Mr. Blackwell was the husband of the late Emma Sutphen Blackwell, and a son of the late Liscomb T. and Sarah Drake Blackwell. Until thirty years ago he conducted a farm in Skillman, and in 1907 built the home on Center street. His wife died about two years ago.

Funeral services were conducted at the Blackwell home this afternoon, with Elder Charles W. Vaughn, of Old School Baptist meeting house, officiating. Burial was in Old School Baptist churchyard, under direction of F. C. W. Rorer.
