James Henry Blakesley was born in 1880 In Kansas, as per the U.S. Census of 1920.He was living in Election District No. 1, Washakie, Co, at that time and owned his home but was a single man.His brother John Blakesley lived with him at the time.In 1930 U.S. Census he was still single and a boarder at William H Deterís farm and says he is 54 b (about 1876) and a farm laborer.The Worland Grit(Austinís extractions) list him as getting married in March 1939.The same source (Wyoming Daily News) indicates he died in March of 1959 at Thermopolis, WY.




Memories of the Blakesley men:The only memories I have of them is associated with the Ten Sleep Inn where John Blakesley stayed a good portion of the time.All that I recall is that he and/or his brother were upstanding men and kept to themselves for the most part.Fb
