In 1840 Greenbrier WV (then VA)census is the following:
1840 Census Jerry or Jany? Blake 1 male 10-15 1 male 15-20 1 female 5-10 1 female 40-50
In 1850 Greenbrier census is the following: Jane Blake, 54 Jonathan Blake, 22 Amanda Blake, 11
In 1860, Jonathan and Amanda are living with what I believe is their older brother, Lewis (b. 1823)and his family.
I have been trying to determine the father of Lewis, Jonathan and Amanda, and would welcome any help. I have traced many descendents of Theophilus Blake, but this family is either not connected or is the result of a lost son or possibly a divorce.
