The Death Summons Comes to Mrs. Anselm T. Blake, Wednesday, May 1, 1895.

This community was saddened Thursday morning, when the intelligence of the death of Mrs. A. T. Blake, at Swan Creek, the day before became known. There was probably no lady living in the county so well known as she, and no one more universally respected. Growing up with this county, she had come to be a well known part of it during her late years.

Mrs. Blake was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. David Trowbridge, who departed this life years ago. Deceased was born in New England in 1803 and removed to this State when only eight years of age. She was united in marriage to Mr. Blake in Athens County, Ohio, December 10, 1826, and came immediately to this county where they resided.With a family of six children, two of whom are dead, she has lived among us almost a century, until summoned to eternal rest to await the sounding of the trumpet on that eventful morn.

Mrs. Blake has been an invalid for over four months, suffering from heart and stomach trouble, together with old age. She realized her condition, but was patient and loving and her earthly life went out quietly and peacefully, surrounded by the tender and attentive hands of the family. Deceased was a woman of great hospitality, taking delight in seeing her house filled with her friends.

While not a member of any particular church, Mrs. Blake professed her faith in Christ at the M. E. Church and a firm believer in its doctrines. One of her characteristics was that of a charitable feeling for everybody, and of forgetting all harsh feeling herself and having a kind word for all her acquaintances.

She was probably the oldest resident of Ohio Township, and that community can never forget her labors for the advancement of any and all good deeds proposed. She was ever faithful to all trusts, unswervingly loyal to her friends and an earnest worker of that _______.

Besides Mr. Blake, who is very poorly, deceased leaves three married daughters and one son, Mrs. E. T. Moore, Mrs. W. H. McCormick, Mrs. John Eaton and Mr. C. B. Blake, to cherish and hold sacred the memory of a true and kind parent.

The funeral services were held at the family residence at Swan Creek, Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock, and were preached by Rev. J. W. McCormick. The burial was in the family burying ground and the remains carried to their last resting place by the deceased's six grandsons. Messrs. Paul, Walter and Alex McCormick, Sherwood and Harry Moore and A. F. Blake. The casket was furnished by Undertaker Wetherholt.
