age 72

In the 1870 U.S. Census, farmer James Blaney, 72, born Ireland, was living in Alexander, Maine, with Isabel, 70, born Ireland; and Edward O'Neil, 10, born Maine.

In the 1860 U.S. Census, James Blaney, 50, born Ireland, was living in Alexander, Maine, with Elizabeth, 48, born Ireland; Thomas, 22; and Sarah, 21, both born in Maine.

166 Pokey Road (lot 28) - James Blaney acquired a bond for this lot in 1861; actually, Hugh Griffin held the original bond from the William Bingham estate, but assigned it to Blaney; the deed would follow in 1883. James and Elizabeth (Scott) Blaney had arrived in Alexander via New Brunswick after 1850. They were married on July 18, 1834, likely at St. Andrews NB. James built on the central part of the lot. Their son Thomas and his bride of the year Sarah (Lyon) were living with them in 1860. Just to the north was the home of their daughter Margaret and her husband Francis Westbrook Brown, an Alexander native. Sometime in the mid 1860s Brown disappeared from our records. Margaret married John McLaughlin. Margaret's children were Francis, James, Thomas Brown, and William McLaughlin all born between 1860 and 1870; after 1870 were Henry, George and Frederick McLaughlin.
We old timers refer to the place on the road where the drive leads to the two Blaney farms as the Johnny Gate. Strange how some old names disappear and others persist. In the early part of the twentieth century, Edward Harriman stayed in the older Blaney house. (Mainething)
