History of Lincoln County, Missouri (Chicago: Goodspeed Publishing Co., 1888) page 508.

Samuel J. BLAKELY is a native of Christian County, Ky., born in 1816.  He was brought to Howard County, Mo., when an infant and was reared here, but his educational advantages were very few.  In 1839 he was united in marriage to Susan E. MYRTLE, a native of Howard County, and seven children blessed their union, six of who are living: Sally Ann (widow of Jesse TATE), Hannah RAMSIE (deceased, wife of Julius F. COX), Olivia (wife of James SANDERS), John William (who is in a stock commission business with his brother-in-law, James SANDERS, in St. Louis), Mary Susan (widow of Job B. BALLARD), Cornelia (wife of Thomas RILEY) and Addie Belle.  Soon after his marriage Mr. BLAKELY removed to Macon County, but in 1866 came to Lincoln County, and located on a good farm near New Hope.  He is a Democrat and a member of the Masonic fraternity.  Mrs. BLAKELY and five of her daughters are members of the Christian Church, Mrs. TATE being a Presbyterian.  Mr. BLAKELY's parents, John and Hannah (HARDIN) BLAKELY, were born in Georgia and Kentucky, respectively, and were married in the latter State about 1817, and came to Howard County, Mo., where the mother died, before the war, and the father after, in 1866, at about seventy-eight years of age.  He was of Irish descent.
