Jacob Blasdel served in the American Revolution and his only pay was a land warrant in the northwest territory of the Ohio River. So Jacob left his New Hampshire home and migrated to Columbia, Ohio but stayed just a short while before coming on to now Dearborn County, Indiana.

Jacob Blasdel married Ruth Morse in 1778 in NH. Nine children were born to this family. The oldest, Enoch (1779-1847) married Susanna Ferris in 1804 (1782-1821) and had 8 children. After Susanna’s death, Enoch married Elenor Majes in 1826 (1773-1858). Jacob Blasdel (1782-1841) married Elizabeth Weaver in 1812 (1791-1883) and they had 8 children. Nabby Blasdel (1784-1864) married Thomas Townsend (1780-1855). Polly Blasdel (1784-1800) died while the family was in Columbia, Ohio. Ruth Blasdel (1787-1839) married in 1808 to Elisha Scoggin Jr. (1789-1821) and they had 7 children. She then married Bailey Guard (1788-1869). Jonathan Blasdel married Nancy Cooper (1794-1869) in 1815 and they had 11 children. Sarah Blasdel, better known as Sally was married twice. Her first husband was Ezekiel G. Harper (1785-aft 1850) and had 3 children and she married Leonard Chase (1793-1841) in 1834 and had two children. Leonard was married to Mary Lee Ferris and had 9 children. Sally finished raising his children and many married into the Blasdel family. Elijah Blasdel (1796-1863) was the youngest son. He married Clarissa Waring (1794-1857) and had 10 children. The youngest daughter was named Betsey Blasdel (1799-1875) and she was married twice. The first was Aaron Burroughs (who died in 1828 and had 5 children and she also married William Leeper. Most of these are buried at Cambridge Cemetery.

Jacob and his wife, Ruth and eight children came and settled near Tanner’s Creek. He settled in now Miller Township about 1804. An entry for Section 28 was shown as Jacob Blasdel and Archibald Stark but the patent from the government was only for Jacob Blasdel

By 1817, Jacob had founded a small town and called it Cambridge. It had a church, a store, a hotel, blacksmith shop, a school, a gristmill and sawmill that operated on water power and a school of higher learning that was the first to be incorporated in Indiana.

Cambridge Cemetery was founded when Jacob Blasdel’s daughter-in-law, Susanna (Ferris) Blasdel died in July of 1821. She wanted to be buried near an old tree, that ran near the mill race. He granted her last request and plotted a family cemetery. Soon this cemetery was opened to the public.

In this small cemetery, we have Jacob Blasdel who was a Revolutionary War Veteran, from NH. Samuel Houston was also a veteran. Enoch Blasdel was in the War of 1812. Jonathan Blasdel, called Captain was a Ranger. Under his direction, a blockhouse was built. John F Blasdel and John Goodwin both served in the Civil War. James McMullen was an old Army Scout who served under General Custer.

These old cemeteries are a part of our heritage and steps need to be taken to prevent people from destroying these small cemeteries.

To obtain a cemetery heritage sign for a cemetery, it must first be listed in the DHPA Cemetery and Burial Grounds Registry, which was established by Indiana Code 14-21-1-13.5. The cemetery must be at least fifty years old. A two page application must be completed. A check or money order for $125. Plus tax and shipping and handling must be accompanied with the application. This cemetery became known as Pella or Pelley Cemetery in 1866 when Judge Hohlman reestablished a post office here.

(This information was used for the program we had for the first Cemetery Heritage Sign in Dearborn County.9,5,6

Jacob resided in Amesbury, MA; Kingston, Brentwood, Tamworth, Eaton, Burton, NH; Columbia, OH; and Cambridge, IN. He was a Lieut. in the Revolutionary War where he served three enlistments and was paid a Warrant for land by the US Government. He sold 1,000 acres of land in New Hampshire, went by horse, oxen and by foot to the Allegheny River near Pittsburgh, PA, then by flat boat down the Ohio River to Marietta, Columbia and Cincinnati, OH. He stayed five years near the Great Miami River. In 1804 he bought Section 23 and 1/4 of Section 29 in Township 6 of Range 1 West, Indiana, three miles west of the Ohio line. He named the place Cambridge, now known as Pella or Pella Crossing. In 1805 at age 51 he began to clear his land. Usually a family could clear an acre a year. One of his first acts was to establish an Academy, a 20' x 24' timber house, believed to be the first college in the Indiana Territory. Lt. Jacob Blasdel was an experienced blacksmith, iron worker and millwright. He built a grist mill and saw mill, operated by power from Tanners Creek.

The following biographical information appeared published in Chicago, Illinois, 1885:
Jacob Blasdell, a soldier in the Revolutionary war, settled on Tanner's Creek, southeast of Guilford in 1805. He was a native of Massachusetts, but removed to New Hampshire and was there married, and possessed upward of 1,000 acres of land. In 1799 he removed to Columbia, at the mouth of the Little Miami River, where the family remained until their removal to this township. Soon after his arrival he built a grist-mill and saw-mill on Tanner's Creek, he being a mill-wright. He also erected a schoolhouse, and in 1811 himself and neighbors built a fort, as it was termed, for defense against the Indians, but they never experienced much trouble from them. Mr. Blasdell understood blacksmithing, and did that class of work for the neighborhood. His death occurred in 1831. Before coming West he had several times served as a member of the Legislature.13


The following biographical information appeared published in Indianapolis, Indiana, 1915:
Jacob Blasdel, who settled on Tanners creek, at the locality where he after wards laid off the town of Cambridge, now a switch on the Big Four railway called Pella, was born in Salisbury, Massachusetts, April 8, 1754. He was a blacksmith by trade and worked in the Brentwood iron works. He married Ruth Morse, of Brenton, March 25, 1791. He had served in the Revolutionary War. Shortly after his marriage he immigrated with his wife to Columbus, Ohio, then in 1804 he came to Miller township, settling on Tanners creek on what was even at that time called “Cherry Bottoms.” He soon after locating there erected a grist-mill, the old race can yet be traced. It was after that for a number of years called Blasdels Mills. Later on he laid out the town of Cambridge there. In recent years it has been called Pella, although the school house near the residence of H. M. Shanks is given the name of “Cherry School,” after the original name given in the early part of the last century. Mr. Blasdel brought with him his family of four sons and four daughters. He and his son Enoch served in the War of 1812. He was a public-spirited man and was very active in everything that helped to develop the country. He deeded a lot in Cambridge to be used for school purposes, which in the quaint language of the time specified that it should be used for educational purposes “So long as grass grows and water runs.” The first building erected on the site donated is said to have to have been a log one with a puncheon floor, a huge fireplace, and the seats for the pupils were made from slabs of trees with legs inserted by means of anger holes. The house was called an “academy” and it has been claimed that-some of the higher branches were taught there by some of the teachers. The ground has continued to be used for school purposes from the days of the rude “academy” to this day.

A FAMILY OF PATRIOTS.
Jacob Blasdel had four sons, Enoch. Jacob. Jonathan and Elijah. each of whom reared a large family. ' His daughters, of which there were four, married as follows: Nabby married Thomas Townsend and had no children; Ruth married Elisha Scoggins; Sally married twice, first to Ezekiel Harper, then to Leonard Chase; Betsy to Aaron Borroughs and after his death to William Leper. Each family was identified with the early history of the country. Jacob Blasdel’s son Jacob, it is said, made the first temperance speech ever heard in the county. It was at a campmeeting held in the forest on the tract of land recently laid off and platted by the Greendale Land Company in their addition to Greendale. He got up to talk and attempted to tell the “cost of a bottle of whisky” and told of a barn raising at his place, where one man lost his life on account of hands made unsteady by liquor, letting the timbers slip. At that time temperance was not popular, the ministers tried to sing him down but he was possessed of a powerful voice and raising it he continued to pour out his invective against the use of liquor and it is said was only silenced by being pulled down by the coat tails. He was also a very public-spirited man with strong convictions on other subjects besides temperance. Among the descendants of Jacob Blasdel in Dearborn county are Ambrose E. Nowlin, banker; F. J. Nowlin, Harry L. Nowlin, and R. Nowlin, now trustee of Miller township, farmers; J. H. Eubank, abstractor; L. J. Eubank, and W. A. Harper, T. W. Harper and Sherwood Blasdel. Jacob Blasdel had four sons, Enoch, Jacob, Jonathan and Elijah, each have had something to do with the patriotism of the Blasdel family. Patriot ism is strengthened by training, and the family of Blasdels had it to an unusual degree. A list is here appended to some of Jacob Blasdel’s descendants who served their country in the Civil War from 1861 to 1865: James M. Blasdel, Jacob W. Blasdel, Lewis Crosby and Jacob Crosby, Second Illinois Cavalry; Thomas Blasdel, Ferris J. Nowlin, Charles B. Blasdel, Jonathan P-. Nowlin, John Blasdel, Huron Blasdel and Alonzo Jackson, Eighty-third Indiana Infantry; George Blasdel, Fifty-second Indiana Infantry; Richard Robinson and Anthony Blasdel.14
