The info I have on James Newton Blake is as follows:

. James Newton Blake was born in 1780 in Greenbrier County, Virginia (now West Virginia). He died on 9 Sep 1833 in Kanawha County, Virginia (now West Virginia). He was buried in Myles Family Cemetery at Fayetteville, Fayette County, West Virginia.

James Newton Blake and Martha Jane "Patsy" Hazlett were married on 3 Apr 1803 in Kanawha County, Virginia (now West Virginia). Martha Jane "Patsy" Hazlett (daughter of James Hazlett and Unknown) was born in 1785 in Greenbrier County, Virginia (now West Virginia). She died in 1813 in Scary Creek, Kanawha County, Virginia. James Newton Blake and Martha Jane "Patsy" Hazlett had the following children:

i.Charles Blake was born in 1806. He died in 1837.
ii. George A Miles Blake.
iii.Andrew Hazelett Blake.
iv. Samuel T Blake.
v. Shelton H Blake.
vi. Lewis S Blake.

James Newton Blake and Jane B Lewis were married in 1814 in Meigs County, Ohio. Jane B Lewis (daughter of Miles Lewis and Ann Betts) was born in 1797 in Harrison County, Virginia. She died in 1853 in Lawrence County, Ohio. James Newton Blake and Jane B Lewis had the following children:

i.Miles Lewis Blake.
ii.Charles C Blake.
iii.James Newton Blake.
iv.William Lewis Blake.
v. Orasmous E Blake.
vi. Artemissa Ann Blake.
vii.John U Blake.
viii.Ephraim M Blake

While the wife's name of Jane seems right, the children don't seem to match. Do you have any additional info to support the idea that Lewis, Jonathan, and Amanda are related to James Newton Blake?

Thanks!
