Elizabeth Drake Blackwell
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: 1772
New Jersey, USA
Death: Nov. 9, 1862
Mercer County
New Jersey, USA

Elizabeth was born about 1772, the daughter of John Drake Sr. She married Jacob Blackwell on 28 Dec. 1796 in Hopewell Twp., old Hunterdon (now Mercer) Co., NJ.

Note: In her old age, Elizabeth lived with her daughter Rebecca Weart and grandson John A. Weart in Trenton, Mercer Co. According to her obituary, Elizabeth's funeral was held from the Weart family home in Trenton. Hence, there can be little doubt that Elizabeth was interred in Rebecca Weart's plot at Mercer Cemetery and is the "E. Blackwell" listed as buried here. The surviving Mercer Cemetery burial register ends a few months before Elizabeth's death, unfortunately; and the cemetery's burial permits begin later. But there is no other E. Blackwell identified in the extant records of the cemetery.
