LEMUEL BLACKMAN. Mr. Lemuel Blackman, one of the original proprietors, and one of the first, if not the first, of the actual settlers, died this year much regretted by the entire community. Mr. Blackman had brought a large family with him, and with them had labored early and late to build up the village. In a number of instances he gave away lots to induce men of a desirable character to build on them and locate here, and in many other ways laboring for the common interest of the settlement. Mr. Blackman kept the tavern which went by his name from the time it was built until his death, and was highly esteemed as a landlord. After his death the house was kept by his son, Horace Blackman, until it was burned in the winter of 1837-8."
