Arthur Blake and Mary Sleymaker were my great grandparents.
Childen were James, Nancy, Elizabeth, Margaret(born about 1844), Julie, John, and Henry(my grandfather).
Arthur(1813-1885), and Mary(1817-1907) were orginally buried under what is now Crab Orchard Lake. When the lake was constructed in the 1930's, their graves were moved to the Refuge Cemetery 1/4 mi. west of the Carterville Rd. on old Illinois state Rt. 13.
What I have been trying to determine is the parents of Arthur Blake. I'm fairly sure that Mary's parents were James and Margaret Sleymaker of Montgomery County NC.
Where do you live?
