Descendants of William Blain

First Generation


1. William Blain was born between 1770-1780 in NJ and died between 1832-1835 in Possibly Manlius Twp., Onondaga Co., NY.
General Notes: The path that I have followed:
I found a William Blain (we'll call him Sr to save on confusion) and Sarah Sparling married on Dec. 19, 1798 in New Brunswick, NJ (See marriage notes). (William Jr was born in Essex, NJ.)
John Blain was married in Manlius, Onondaga Co., NY July 04, 1825 to Zervilla Duncan.
William Blain (Jr) married Fanny M Hackett about 1828, this date is based on the oldest childs birth date.
Charles Blain was born in Onondaga, NY in 1814.

Using the above clues this is what I've found so far:

PROPERTY SALES BY DATE OF RECORDING
TOWN OF MANLIUS: 1830-1839
Blain, William by Admr. to W. B. Goodfellow 1835 (58,183) lot 63. I believe this is the sale of William Sr.'s property after he died. This could have been what set the boys in motion toward Ohio. Looks like the Goodfellow's were associated with the Blain family for a quite a few years (note to the 1810 census).

One of the early State Gazetteers, published in 1824, gives the following description of this town:
The south part is moderately hill, the north part more level and the soil of the whole is very fertile of grain, grass, fruit, &c. In this town are abundance of mill seats, on Limestone, Chittenango and Butternut creeks, and a great number of mills...The inhabitants are immigrant Yankees, or German and Dutch, from the Mohawk river, industrious and prosperous...There are four post-offices and five "villages" known by local names. Manlius, a Post borough (or incorporated village with a post-office of same name,) is situated on Limestone creek at the junction of three or four turnpikes. It contains 100 dwellings, and about 200 buildings of all kinds, 3 churches, a Masonic Lodge, a printing office, a cotton factory, and has a great deal of hydraulic, mechanical and trading business. The Post Village of Fayetteville, 2 miles north of Manlius, on the north branch of the Seneca turnpike, has 25 houses. The Post Village of Orville, 5 miles northwest of Manlius, on the same turnpike, has about 20 houses, a church, and a side cut to the Erie canal. Eagleville, 1 1/2 miles east of Manlius, has about 20 houses. The Post Village of Jamesville, 5 miles west of Manlius, is on Butternut creek and has mills and about 35 houses...Within two miles of Manlius village (which is on the border of a deep gulf, through which flows Limestone creek) are four grain mills, 5 saw mills, 2 fulling mills, 2 carding machines, 2 nail factories, an oil mill, and a cotton and woolen factory.

A PIONEER
Closes His Life's Work. Royalton Township Loses One of Its Prominent Citizens.
----------------------------
One by one the pioneers of the county are laying down their life's work and entering into eternal rest. Last week William Blaine, of Royalton Township, at the age of nearly ninety-five was ushered into the great beyond. By his kind and considerate treatment of others; by his generous acts; by loyalty to his home, country and Creator, he was known as one of the ideal citizens of this county.

Mr. Blaine located in this county in 1833, shortly after the first white settlers had arrived and from that time until a few years ago he was active in clearing away the forest, draining and improving the lands of the county, building and establishing schools and churches and devoting every energy to bring about the pleasant and happy condition which we enjoy today.
He was born in Essex, NJ August 16, 1809 and when but a child moved to New York where he grew to manhood. For a number of years he was employed as a boatman on the Erie Canal.
He was united in marriage to Miss Fanny Hackett of NY and into this home came eleven children, who have grown to manhood and womanhood and who are now located throughout this county and constitute a part of its best citizens.

The Blain family started to move:
From the book "Landsman of Lenawee County" by LT. Col. Paul R. Peck:
Town 9 South Range 4 East
Charles Blain, #4062 Sec: 19 Acres: 51.39 Patent Date: Oct. 10, 1834
William Blain, #4715 Sec: 19 Acres: 51.30 Patent Date: Dec 23, 1834
Sarah & Gilbert stayed on this farm (in Sylvania Twp. now) until Gilbert died then Sarah moved in with Charles.

Charles Blain purchased land in the Monroe Detroit strip 10/1/1835, he was from Monroe Co., MI.
[I believe this to be our Charles.]
William Blain purchased land in the Monroe Ohio Michigan strip 3/16/1837, he was from Monroe Co., MI [This is my William Blain, I have located this farm, the 2nd house to be built on this land is still standing. This piece of land was passed down to William's daughter Jane, then to her son, Thomas then to his son James. The property was sold in 1975 to someone outside of the family. That farm was in this family for 138 years.]

Notes to the above purchases: Charles & William both show that they are from the Monroe Co., MI area. The Toledo area back in the 1830s was included in the area know as Monroe/Detroit Land strip. Toledo was a part of Monroe Co., MI at the time of their purchases. These purchases were in the Fulton Co., Amboy Twp. area.

From the book HISTORY OF FULTON COUNTY, OHIO
By George P. Monagon and George M. Liscombe published in 1877:
"Fulton Township was organized at a very early date, embracing Amboy Township. Among its first inhabitants were Hiram Bartlett, John Blain, William Blain, and Charles Blain, the mother of whom lived with her son Charles and died some three years ago at the ripe old age of one hundred years. David and Jerry Duncan, Tunis Lewis, John Lewis and Charles Welch were among the first."

From the book History of Fulton Co., OH published by Northwestern Historical Assc. 1905, Page 189:
"Among the other settlers who came to this township in 1833 were Alvah Steadman, Aaron Steadman and David Steadman (the latter being the father of Alvah and Aaron), Frank O'Neil, Charles Blain, William Blain, John Roop, Joseph Roop and Alfred Gilson. The Blains were originally from Lodi, near Syracuse, Onondaga Co., NY and they first made a halt at Toledo, at a very early day, from whence they came on foot across the country westward, and settled in Amboy, then, however, under the jurisdiction of Blissfield Twp. in MI. Coming here in the fall of 1833, each of them raised large families, all of whom grew to man and womanhood and have since been respected citizens of Amboy Twp. Alvah Steadman is supposed to have been the second settler in the twp., but possibly the honor will have to be divided with John and Joseph Roop, yet Oliver B Verity is authority for the statement that the best information of the old pioneers accorded that honor to Alvah Steadman. Frank O'Neil settled where Metamora is now located and built the first cabin in that part of the twp., enjoying with his family alone the full fruits of a pioneer's life and the honor of being ahead of the other settlers.
Following the settlements of 1833, there was a large accession of the population. In 1834, David Duncan from Onondaga Co., NY; also John Blain and Jerry Duncan from the same place; Lorenso Abbott, Seneca Corbin from NY; Park White and his son David White, Jonathan Gilson, Clark Gilson, James Hallett, John Labounty, Samuel Purdy, Joseph Richey, Nathaniel Welch and Harry Welch. Park White was a native of Vermont. In the year 1835 there came Hiram Bartlett, who first emigrated from Cooperstown, Otsego Co., NY in 1826 and settled at Port Lawrence (now Toledo), and resided there nine years before coming to Amboy Twp. Calvin Skinner, Cyrus Fisher, Horatio Stevens and Caleb Remilie came from Niagara Co., NY."

Quoted from the book History of Fulton County, page 252: [See Charles Blaine Jr., notes for the full story.]
For six years Mr. Blaine [Charles Jr.] served as trustee of Amboy Township, and as path master fourteen years. Some of the family ancestry were among the earliest citizens of Fulton County. John Roop, William Blain, Alfred Gilson and Aaron Stedman were pioneers of the community. The Blaine's are members of Amboy Grange and Mr. Blaine is a member of Baxter Post, Grand Army of the Republic, of Lyons. He is vice commander and has held all of the chairs except treasurer of the Post.

Quoted from the History of Fulton County, Chapter XV, History of Royalton Twp. page 327. Found at the Delta Library.
"...However, to state the record as it is, among the settlers who came in 1834 were Butler Richardson, George W. Welsh, Warren Dodge, Frazier Smalley and Joseph H. Applegate; in 1835, Nathaniel S. Ketchum, Charles D. Smith, John Sturdevant, Will L. Windship, Joshua Youngs, David Wood, and the brothers Blain, Wm and Charles;..."
Same book, page 328.
"... The brothers Blain settled on the line of Amboy and Royalton."

Quoted from the History of Fulton County, Royalton Twp. Published 1888, Found at the Flint Library,
page 203:
"...and in 1835 came William and Charles Blain, brothers, who settled in the eastern part on the line of Amboy and Royalton Twps..."

His Obituary reads:
Myron D. Blain.
Myron D. Blain was born in New York State, Allegheny County, July 16, 1831. At the age of three years he came with his parents to Toledo, which was then a mere treading station, consisting of a few log buildings and only one frame building.
They came by boat and later traveled with an ox team as was customary for the early settlers, enduring all the hard ships and privations and dangers incident to pioneer life as he grew up with the new country.
(The family first camped on what is known as the Beulah farm, near Whiteville, Ohio and afterwards located on a farm in Fulton county.)
He was married Nov. 7, 1854, to Mary Parent by the Rev. S.D.Rogers. To this union five children were born: Josephine, who died in 1910; Samuel C. Blain of Jasper, Hattie LaPoint of Toledo, Mary Mackey of Ridgeville, and Benjamin Blain of Adrian.
Of a family of 11 children only two sisters survive him, Jane Hyland (Hallnan) and Fannie (Cordelia) Beals of Toledo. Besides these he leaves a number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Loyal to his country, Mr. Blain enlisted when the Civil War broke out, in the 67th Regiment, Company F, of Ohio serving three years and three months.
Here, too, he endured untold hardships as did many of his comrades, being many times without food and comfortable clothing and exhausted by long, continued marching, all for his home, loved ones and his country.
As long as he was able he attended the soldiers reunions and looked forward to the day as one of the best days of the year.
Helping as he did in the early settling of the country, Mr. Blain took great interest in watching its progress and development and had vivid mental pictures of the past, relating names of friends, places and incidents with accuracy as though it was only yesterday. Memories of former years seemed a great comfort to him in his declining years.
His life companion was taken by death January 14, 1905, since which time he has made his home with the younger son on the farm where he settled 54 years ago, south of Jasper, Michigan.
His willingness to help in time of need made him many friends. He led a quiet, unassuming life and was known as an honest, upright citizen, a loyal friend and neighbor.
His was a life well spent and he shall surely receive the reward to which he was called Nov. 29, 1920.
The burial was made in Fairfield cemetery.

General Notes: From History of Fulton County Vol. II, page 260 & 261. (Found in the Delta Library)
Robert Blaine, who for more than twenty years was a resident of Delta, Fulton county, Ohio and to whom death came in that town on January 19, 1918, came of a family which is placed among the pioneer families of Amboy Twp., Fulton county and which has notable record of national service during the Civil war, Robert Blaine and his four brothers all having served in the Union Army. Robert Blaine himself also should be classed among the pioneers of the county, for during his active lifetime, which with the exception of his years of war service was spent almost wholly in Fulton county, he cleared a large acreage of wild land, converting the unproductive wilderness into tillable agricultural district it is; and it was by such wholehearted personal service as that of Robert Blaine and his four brothers that the cause of the Union and of the southern slave ultimately triumphed in the severe and prolonged Civil War.
Robert Blaine was born in Amboy Twp., Fulton county, Ohio, August 7, 1837, the son of Charles and Rachel (Bertholf) Blaine. The Blaine family was in colonial days resident in New York state, and Charles Blaine and his wife were both born in that state, although it appears that soon after marriage they settled on wild land in Amboy Twp., Fulton county, Ohio, in which township all their children were born, including the five sons whose patriotic war service brought to the family such an enviable record. Charles and Rachel (Bertholf) Blaine were the parents of nine children, five sons and four daughters, five of whom are still living. The surviving children are: Charles, who lives in Amboy Twp; James, now of Wichita, Kansas; Marion of Toledo, Ohio; Elmina, who married William Driscoll, of Amboy Twp.; and Emily, who married Thomas Stedman, of Amboy Twp. And lives in the old Blaine homestead in that township.
Robert Blaine, born and reared in Amboy Twp. Attended the district school nearest to his father's farm, although the school term in those days was short, the vacation extending through practically the whole of the growing season, during which Robert as a boy did much agricultural work. When he finally left school he took good part with brothers in the work of the home farm, which was for the most part timber land. He married when he was twenty-one years old and after taking this step he also began to farm independently, but the farm to which he took his wife was at that time all wild timber land, with just sufficient cleared space to permit of the erection of a log cabin. The early married life of Robert Blaine and his wife was passed under the rigorous conditions of the pioneer. But he was a sturdy pioneer and during the next few years cleared quite a satisfactory acreage of his farm. He had been married four years when a momentous question came to them for decision. They decided, and the outcome was the enlistment of the husband as a soldier in the Union Army for the term of the Civil War. Some of his brothers had already gone into the service and all had decided to enlist. Robert enlisted in the spring of 1863, in Company I of the 47th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, which became a part of the Army of the Cumberland and as such took part in the southern campaign of General Sherman, including Sherman's famous march through Georgia to the sea. Robert Blaine served until after the termination of hostilities in 1865 and having received honorable discharge he returned soon afterward to his native county and township and again took up the task of clearing his eighty acre farm. This eventually he accomplished with forty acres additional, so that he ultimately possessed a fine tract of tillable soil, upon which he and his family lived until 1894, when he had reached a state of material wealth to enable him to retire from agricultural work. He rented his farm to another and went with his wife into Delta, building a fine home in the village and there residing in comfortable circumstances until his death, January 19, 1918. The expressions of sympathy his widow received at that time clearly indicated the respect in which her husband was held in the village of Delta, and in their native township. Mr. Blaine lived a worthy, helpful and unselfish life. He took good part in the public responsibilities of the township, serving for twelve years as justice of the peace, two years as assessor and at one time was township trustee and a member of the School Board. Politically Mr. Blaine was a republican and at one time was a factor of some consequence in political movements in Amboy Twp. He belonged to the Delta Post of the Grand Army of the Republic and was an active church worker in his younger days. In fact, when he lived in Amboy Twp he always served as steward of his church.
Robert Blaine married on July 4, 1859, Laura M Robb, who had been born in Medina, Ohio, but had lived in Amboy Twp for about four years with her parents before she and Robert Blaine married. Her parents were Nathaniel and Calista (Parent) Robb, the former a native of New Hampshire and her mother of Ithaca, New York. Her parents had married in New York state, but had early come into Medina county, Ohio, of which county they are among the pioneers and in 1855 moved into Amboy Twp of Fulton county, where they lived for the remainder of their lives. Robert and Laura M (Robb) Blaine lived a praiseworthy married life to within eighteen months of fifty years. Mrs. Blaine still lives in Delta, where she has many sincere friends. She is in comparatively good health, is comfortably circumstanced, and has the solicitude of many true friends. She owns sixty acres of her late husband's farm in Amboy Township, which property is in the hands of a reliable tenant. Robert and Laura M (Robb) Blaine were the parents of two children: Viola, who is the widow of William Carter, who for the greater part of his life was a resident of Delta, where his widow still lives, near her mother; and Ella who married Frank Penny, of Metamora, Fulton county.

Quoted from the book History of Fulton County, page 252:
Charles Blaine. The Blaine family history began at Toledo as early as 1830, with the coming of Charles Blaine, Sr., from Onondaga Co., NY. Charles Blaine, Jr., of Amboy, was born November 1, 1847-territorial days in Fulton Co., and he has always lived in the same community. His mother, Rachel (Bault) Blaine, was born in Sylvania. When they located in Amboy the whole face of the earth in as far as their environment went was in timber and under water.

Mr. Blaine entered a quarter section of land, which he cleared and improved, and he and his wife both died there. The children in this pioneer family are: Robert and Benjamin, deceased; Sarah, wife of George Havens, of Swan Creek; Elmina, wife of William Driscoll, of Royalton; James, of Wichita, Kansas; Charles, of this sketch; Marion, of East Toledo; Esther, deceased wife of William Stillwell; and Emma, wife of Thomas Stedman, of Amboy.

Let the mathematician estimate the age of a young man born November 1, 1847 who enlisted in the Union Army March 1, 1864. Charles Blaine enlisted in Company I, Forty-seventh Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and his regiment was assigned to duty at Chattanooga. He was in the Army of the Cumberland under Generals Sherman, Logan and Hagen, and he was in some of the hard fought engagements. He was at Missionary Ridge and Atlanta, and went with General Sherman "from Atlanta to the Sea while marching through Georgia."

Mr. Blaine was in different engagements in South Carolina and went with his regiment to Raleigh, North Carolina, being there when Johnston surrendered, and he also witnessed General Lee's surrender. He went to Petersburg, Richmond and on to Washington. He was in Washington at the time of the Grand Review, as the soldiers were disbanding and being sent to their homes all about the country. He went from Washington to Parkersburg and down the Ohio River to Louisville. After camping five days in Louisville he went to Little Rock, where he remained four weeks, and from there to Camp Denison, where he received his discharge August 11, 1865 and returned to Fulton County.

On February 3, 1867 Mr. Blaine married Estner Roop, a daughter of William and Lauretta (Gilson) Roop, of Amboy. The father was born in Toledo and the mother in Vermont. The paternal ancestry, John and Mary (Mills) Roop, came from Buffalo, NY and Sandusky OH. The maternal grandparents, Alfred and Jane (McAllister) Gilson came from Vermont. When Charles Blaine was married he settled on forty acres he had acquired and remained there ten years clearing and improving it. When he sold it he bought fifty acres of his present farm, when it was all in timber and he had to clear the space for the first house built on it. He now has thirty-five acres under cultivation, the remainder in wood land and pasture.
In the was of business enterprise Mr. Blaine owned and operated a cane mill when people lived on sorghum molasses, and as the orchards came into bearing he added the cider mill. He made sorghum molasses and cider fro the public until 1902, and he continued in the saw mill business until 1917, when he disposed of it. There was little demand for sorghum and with the destruction of the forest the orchards and more enemies and there was fewer apples for cider. However, the cane mill industry revived in war times in some communities. Sorghum molasses was often substituted for sugar.

Mr. Blaine has added to his landed possessions until he now has 213 acres in three different places and he personally manages the 120 acres in the farmstead where he lives. He combines livestock production with farming and keeps a dairy. The dairy farmer maintains soil fertility and thereby increases the land production. His children are: Ina, wife of Frank Carter, of Amboy; Charles Ernest, of Delta; Van Harry, of Constantine, MI; and Myrtle, wife of Emmet Wilcox of Amboy. For six years Mr. Blaine served as trustee of Amboy Township, and as path master fourteen years. Some of the family ancestry were among the earliest citizens of Fulton County. John Roop, William Blain, Alfred Gilson and Aaron Stedman were pioneers of the community. The Blaine's are members of Amboy Grange and Mr. Blaine is a member of Baxter Post, Grand Army of the Republic, of Lyons. He is vice commander and has held all of the chairs except treasurer of the Post.

A birthright pioneer of Fulton County one of the youngest surviving veterans of the great Civil War, a farmer and promoter of home industry, these and other services have made Mr. Blaine, one of the most interesting and useful citizens of the county, and he well deserves the respect and high esteem in which he is held by the members of his community.

General Notes: His Obituary:
Wm. B Goldsmith, son of Harmon and Alnora Goldsmith, was born in Fairfield Township, Mich, July 24th, 1870 and died at his home in Fairfield on Monday, April 11th, 1898, at 7 o'clock a.m.
He was married Sept. 14, 1897 to Miss Anna Hatt, of Palmyra, Mich.
Willie will be greatly missed not only in the home circle, but in the entire community where he was a general favorite.
The school where he attended but a few years ago was closed, and the bearers were selected from his schoolmates.
The funeral was largely attended and was held at the Ridge church, April 13th. The services were both solemn and impressive and were delivered by the same pastor who officiated at the marriage so short a time ago, the Rev. Geo. Humphrey, of Palmyra.
The pallbearers were Archie Morse, Samuel Raymond JR., Fred Morse, Clifford Ayers, Eugene Stout and Frank Raymond.
Universal sympathy goes out to his parents, who have seemingly had more then their share of trouble, this being their last child, the support of their declining years, they having lost a son a little over a year ago; also to his widow, who so shortly started with him on life's voyage, with bright prospects of a long and happy life together.
