Friday, July 13, 1973

Returned today to Hartford Connecticut and the state library. I had hoped to check the "Barbour" Collection for names and dates missing in my "Ancestral Record" book. I found practically nothing and half-way through the list realized that most of the names I knew came from printed genealogies and the authors had already gleaned all the information available in the Barbour Collections. . . . .

BLAKE FAMILY ÊPage 641-642

(Taken from a booklet Our Folks, by George M. Blake, Attorney at Law, Rockford, Ill.; pub. June 1, 1895.)

John Blake1, b. prob. Malden, England, about 1652, was the son of Capt. (???) and Elizabeth Blake, and a step-son of George Durant who married his widowed mother about 1660. John Blake came to New England with his parents, who must have come to America about 1660-61, when John was about 9 or 10. He died at Middletown, Conn., Nov. 11, 1690. His children were not baptized until after his death, which may indicate that he was a Churchman.
