      Samuel Johnson in his Regiment

      Is John Blake 12546 r Grand Manan 1808 related?

      Timothy Blake was Samuel Johnson's Sergeant in Lieut John Hobby's Company, Henry Jackson's Regiment 1777-1779. When he deserted in 1779, he was probably returning his family home.
    • When Joanna Greenlaw and Samuel Johnson were married in 1840, they were connected through obvious channels: Samuel's second wife Sarah was Joanna's sister; and Samuel owned a farm he bought fromm Ebenezer, Joanna's father. There were a couple of other interesting connections that ran deeper, and weren't so obvious. These connections were through Joanna's first husband Timothy Blake.

      Timothy Blake and Joanna Greenlaw were married in 1797 at the All Saints Anglican church in St Andrews. Timothy was born in Maine in 1775 and lived at Penobscot before coming to New Brunwick. He was probably among the Loyalists who arrived in the area, since his mother went there, and despite the fact that he wasn't on the 1784 return in Passamaquoddy inhabitants. He was said to have died at sea.

      His parents Timothy Blake and Prudence Webster, both born in New Hampshire, were married at Georgetown in 1764. By the late 1760s, the Blakes had moved to the Penobscot River, settling in the area of present-day Bangor callen Penobscot Falls. By the time of the Revolutionary War, the family had come to Penobscot, but may have abandonded the place when the British took control of the town and built the Fort in 1779.

      Some unnamed Blake acquired land on Deer Isle some time before 1777, and only for a short time. A "Mr Blake of Bagaduce" was said to have purchased the improvements of William Greenlaw there, but it is unclear who that Blake was. Living at Penobscot at that time were Moses, Timothy s Moses, Israel, and Ephraim s Israel, all of whose families returned to Penobscot after the war. Despite the fact that we can't precisely determine which Blake had land on Deer Isle, the tangible connection between the Blakes and Greenlaws came in the marriage of Timothy Blake and Joanna Greenlaw in 1797. The question of whether the Blakes and the Greenlaws knew each other before the Loyalist Exodus is open.

      Despite the schism caused by the Revolution, there was still a relationship between the people of St Andrews and those of mid-coast Maine. This line of open communication--primarily over the water--brought some families back to Maine, and more to New Brunswick. One example is the Carlow brothers who returned to maine for a period, then came back to New Brunswick. Three Tibbetts sisters came to St Andrews after their family moved from Bangor to Penobscot around 1790. Their brothers John and Samuel came from Penobscot to Grand Manan before returning around 1810. Timothy's apparent occupation as a mariner probably brought him back and forth between Penobscot and St Andrews many times. The Greenlaws came back to Penobscot after the war too. In 1789, Jonathan, Ebenezer, and Alexander Greenlaw returned to Maine to dispose of a lot of land on Deer Isle formerly owned by their father, and two of Jonathan's sons returned to Maine permanently.

      There are few records of Timothy. His birthdate was recorded in the family bible. The next mention of him I could find was his marriage record in 1797. Prudence Blake born in 1799 was probably his daughter. An 1803 deed between his aunt and brother was witnessed by a Timothy Blake, which is probably him. He is said to have died at sea, and it could have been around this time. He doesn't head any households in censuses; no deeds are recorded in his name; no probate record exists for him. His widow Joanna's life was unsettled too, always in motion. When she married Timothy in 1797, she already had one daughter. After Timothy died she married a Collins (who I can't identify), a Palmer, a Keezer, and finally Samuel Johnson.

      Joanna's first and last husband had something in common too, both of their fathers served in the same unit during the Revolutionary War. Who knows if this is knowledge any of them had, retained or shared, but it is an interesting thread. Timothy's father was Sergeant Timothy Blake, who was with Captain John Hobby's Company. Samuel Johnson's father Samuel Johnson was a private in that same Company from April through September 1779. Timothy Sr and Samuel Sr certainly knew one another, but since Timothy Sr is said to have died at West Point, presumably soon after his discharge in 1783, their only relationship would have been in the service.

      Timothy Sr's death would have left his children with no direct knowledge of his service. They certainly knew local soldiers who served with him, as is evident in his son Moses's application for Bounty land due his father. Samuel Sr's recollections could have been buried too. He deserted his regiment in September 1779. The Regiment was on its way from Castle Island off Boston to Penobscot when they were informed of the disastrous rout of the Americans there. The transports would have laid in at a Maine port, where Samuel may have jumped ship, so to speak.

      Desertion during the war was not uncommon, as there may have been a desertion rate of 25% during that conflict. I can't say what kind of stigma was attached to this, and how his neighbors at home may have received him as a deserter. Nearly all the Balltown men named in a 1777 list of men of age for militia service served at some time during the war. And more than half of those returned to Balltown after the war. So the Revolutionary War was not soon to be forgotten in that neighborhood. Who knows how much the war was remembered in Samuel Sr's household.

      Samuel Sr's service included the frigid winter near Valley Forge, several bouts of sickness including smallpox, as well as the battles and his ultimate desertion. At home it would have been just as trying for his wife Lydia, who had 4 small children to take care of without a husband for nearly 2 years. The war was clearly misearble for his whole family. However, the whole affair may have not been something to be recalled in the family. This possible lack of recollection in the family would have been compounded by the fact that no pension was ever sought by Samuel Sr or heirs. Although there was pension Acts passed in his lifetime, Samuel Sr was not eligible due to the length of his service. His widow Lydia died before the law granted widows a pension too.

      So the knowledge of the common service of Samuel Johnson Sr and Timothy Blake Sr was quickly lost. And the connection between Joanna Greenlaw and her fifth husband Samuel Johnson was never know, not revealed until more than two centuries later.
