            Otto N[athan] Blakesley was born in 1853 in Illinois (as per 1920 U.S. census) and his father was born in Canada and mother in NY.  His own marital status at the age of 57 (1920) was ‘divorced’.  He was listed as a boarder at the McCann residence (no given name for McCann) in Worland, WYO.  It is believed he is a relative of John and James H Blakesley whom also, both are listed in the 1920 U.S. census records—all three in Worland, WYO.   He passed away 13 June 1942 in Worland and his obituary showed up in the 16 June issue of the Wyoming Daily News (A Austin’s extractions).
