    Notes 
    • In 1880 John was a Wagon Maker and in 1900 a Real Estate Agent.

      He was educated at So. D'ville and Alfred, N. Y. Academies; came west with his father, whom he assisted in business, and with whom he was first in partnership and later succeeded in the wagon manufactory. In 1889 he sold out the wagon factory at Harvard aud established at Rockford, Ill. (but kept his home in Harvard), the J. C. Blake Heating Co., a corporation for contracting and erecting, aud for dealing in, all kinds of steam and other heating apparatus and similar supplies. This he conducted very successfully until fall of 1892, when his father's failing health made it necessary that a stronger and younger person should be constantly at hand to aid him and watch over him. Accordingly, under guise of partnership, with his latter in the real estate and collection business, he established himself as his father's physical guardian without the latter's perceiving the real intent. The Heating Co. was left in the management of his son, Jesse C. Blake, with Ruel E. Dewey, a second cousin, as supt. of construction. Since his father's death, his mother's health is by no means good and Mr. Blake has given his whole time to the Harvard office business, with sufficient attention to the Heating Co. at Rockford to keep it up to standard. Jesse C. has, however, proved a careful manager and has relieved Mr. Blake of more and more care each year in this respect. John C. Blake is a "chip of the old block" in character.
