BAPTISM: Joseph Blake was also baptized while living.
Joseph Benjamin Blake's occupation was share-cropper and sawmill laborer. He sharecropped on the "Old Fancher Place" near Six Mile in Bibb County, Alabama.
A family reunion for the descendants of Joseph Blake, Grover Warren, and Samuel Warren is held on the 4th Sunday in June every year at the Cahaba Valley Baptist Church grounds located adjacent to the Cahaba River near Marvel
in Bibb County, Alabama. Descendants were still attending as of June 1995. Since Grover Warren had few descendants and both his wife and Samuel Warren's wife were daughters of Joseph Blake, this should be considered as a Blake
Family Reunion although most in attendance have other surnames (Warren, Vest, etc.). This 4th Sunday meeting is formerly a "Homecoming" for former members of the Cahaba Valley Baptist Church and their descendants. There will be others in attendance not related to us. -Ronald Eugene Vincent, 1995
