SKETCH OF BLACKWELL

Trenton Evening Times

Mr. Blackwell was the eldest son of former Senator and Mrs. Jonathan H. Blackwell of 167 West State Street. He was a widower and associated with his father in the wholesale grocery business. Besides his parents, Mr. Blackwell is survived by a sister, Miss Clara M. Blackwell, and two brothers, William J. and Henry C. Blackwell. Miss Clara Blackwell was attending the D. A. R. Congress at Washington when the first news of the loss of the Titanic was received and was summoned to this city.
The aged mother of Mr. Blackwell has been in poor health for some time, but is bearing up bravely under the weight of sorrow. The loss of the two Trenton men, so popular in local social circles, and the sudden death of Mrs. William A. Clark, this week, has cast such a pall over society people that many affairs are being cancelled and others planned have been abandoned. The social season in this city is thus practically brought to an end by the hand of death.
