Does anyone know the name or have any information on Stephen W. Blackwell's wife?

All I have on her is that she died in 1906 at age 24.

Thanks,
Leigh A. Ross

Her full name is Emily Thomas Lake. She was born in Mar 1882 in Washington, Warren, New Jersey to John Ross Lake (born Apr 1848- New Jersey) and Martha Thomas (born Sep 1848 - Pennsylvania).

She married Blackwell 5 Jun 1901 in Washington, Warren, New Jersey.

Just to clarify the hometown of the late Emily Blackwell, Washington is the actual town of her birth while "Warren County" is the region encompassing Washington, New Jersey. At the northern edge of my old "stomping" grounds, Washington is still a small town of around two or three square miles and pretty much resembling what it no doubt looked like in the early part of the 20th century.

This is my first post. i hope this will help. i was looking for information on Stephen Blackwell and i came across this newspaper which reads.

The Hopewell Herald dated Wednesday Dec 19,1906

Mrs Emily Thomas Blackwell wife of Stephen Weart Blackwell of New York City was buried in the Old School Baptist Churchyard in this place saturday afternoon. The funeral was held from the residents of ex-Senator Jonathan H. Blackwell father in-law of the deceased in Trenton and was largely attended. The florist display was gorgeous.
Mrs. Blackwell was well known here, her husband being a nephew of Nelson D.(i think i can't make it out clearly) and David B. Blackwell, resident of the borough.
Mrs. Blackwell's death was due to typhoid fever. she was sick for weeks.

Hello, Lisa---

Great article. You should add it to Blackwell's bio page on the main site; it would be a nice addition.
