Patrick and James Blake, brothers, emigrated from Ireland in the 'forties, and lived in Pennsylvania until they came to Washington township in 1856. The party consisted of the brothers, a sister, Mrs. Patrick Blake, and her three children. James Blake was married in 1876. Both became prosperous, the latter becoming the eventual owner of 320 acres and the former (Patrick) of 360 acres of finely cultivated and improved land.
