David Elijah Blake
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1835
Dearborn County
Indiana, USA
Death: Dec. 31, 1891
Posey County
Indiana, USA

CO. C 29th ILL INF
Spouse: Louisa J Black
Marriage: 23 MAR 1856 Mount Vernon, Posey, Indiana

This David was the brother of my great-grandfather, Samuel. David and Samuel married sisters. It was a joke in my family that Blake brothers married Black sisters. I spent quite a bit of time in Posey County doing family history research. I have a copy of the newspaper article reporting David's death by pneumonia while back in Indiana visiting his mother, Elizabeth. The article stated that he had come from the "Indian Territory" which I'm assuming was Oklahoma. I can provide a copy of that article if anyone wants it.
