I'm also researching Blakeslee's in Ashtabula, OH. Specifically Bela Blakeslee (1805-?) who married Sarah Burnett and his parents Bela Blakeslee (1762-1825) & Olive Brown (1766-1832). Bela's an unusual name, isn't it? Do you know anything of why the Ashtabula Blakeslees left CT for OH? Bela & Sarah had three children Orra, Jane and Burnett. Jane was my gggrandmother.
