Julius Alvin Blair was the son of Alvin and Mary Minegar Blair. He was always called 'Capt.' or 'Cap,' a nickname which his daughter, Mary, believes he got in childhood rather than after military service in the Civil War. He was an active member of the Methodist Church, a Replublican, a Mason, a member of the Blue Lodge, The Royal Arch and the Eastern Star. Julius and Emma were married in Red Oak, Montgomery County, Iowa in February 1880. They had seven children, but three were still-born and their twins lived to be only nine and eighteen months old.
