I did find a very possible brother to Levi, Henry Blake. He along with 2 other brothers, who are unknown to me, along with Levi's 4 brothers in law, enlisted in the Civil War (have not had time to find regiments, but take it for granted all enlisted in the Castleton/Rutland Vt areas and were in regiments associated with those areas).
Henry moved after the war, to Cheboygan, MI, and on censuses, is listed as either a lumber merchant or machinist. I did find a business listing (but no info) for a Watson and Blake lumber yard in Cheboygan, operating in the 1870's.
Can anyone corroborate, that Henry and Levi were brothers? Do you know who the other brothers, and who the Freelove brothers in law were? Any info on the Watson of Watson and Blake?
Thanks!
