George C. Blackwell was born June 24, 1870 in Gentry County, MO., coming to Daviess County at the age of sixteen.

He attended the Stanberry Normal after which he taught a number of country schools in the County and adjoining Caldwell County. He was married to Miss Lillian Dale, September 24, 1893 and they made their first home in Lock Springs. Between 1899 and 1903 Mr. Blackwell published the Lock Springs News, the town's first newspaper, and ran the post office from his place of business east of the Lock Springs Hotel. Later he served as carrier when the first rural route was established.

The Blackwells then moved to the Grand River Farm owned by her father, L.T. Dale. In 1909 they moved to Harrison Township and in 1915, moved to Colorado for the benefit of his health, returning to Breckenridge, where he served until his death in 1928. The Blackwells were parents to parents to four children: Dale H., John Donovan, Alma (Mrs. A.B. Cleaveland), and George C. Jr. Only Mrs. Cleaveland survives. Mrs. Blackwell died in 1936.
