Once again, I have a beautiful mystery child. The label simply reads, “Blake Storey”.
The Storey name is connected to my Ellis family. My great-grandaunt Alice Eliza Ellis married Joseph Smith Storey. They had two daughters and three sons. I would imagine that Blake descends from one of those sons in some way but I wasn’t able to find the connection.
Family of Blake Storey, if you come across this photo and can help me identify Blake and his family I would love to hear from you!
This photo comes from the thirty-fourth page of the album. Here are pages thirty-four and thirty-five to give context for this photo:
This post is part of a series sharing this wonderful old family photo album. You can learn more about the album here.

Congratulations on your blogiversary. I never knew your name until I read it in GeneaBloggers Tribe.
Thank you! Ooooh, so I was a mystery genealogist for you, huh? 😉 Haha!
What a beautiful child. I hope this proves to be another photo that finds its way to family members.
Wishing you and your family a very happy, healthy and productive 2019 Amberly.
Thank you, Su! Me too. So far, I haven’t heard anything, but I also didn’t have any leads so he’s not tagged to anyone on FamilySearch. I’ve actually been wondering if maybe he is still alive…? (I try not to post photos of living people without their permission but I have no idea about him.)
I hope you and your family also enjoy a wonderful 2019 filled with lots of joy and goodness. ❤️
Thanks Amberly. I had thought that he might be alive still. I’m sure, given that you’re trying to reunite the photo with family, that he wouldn’t mind it being posted.
I hope you are right! And he is so very young in the photo… How can one get mad when looking at that sweet, little boy smile? 😉
I am so thankful that I found you & it turned 2018 into a wonderful year. I hope you are able to locate Blake.
Thank you, Nancy! ❤️
Amberly, I believe this is JOHN BLACK STOREY born 11-20-1923 to Ephraim and Rosetta Fuller Storey. Ephraim’s parents were James and Clarissa Chadwick Storey. James Storey’s brother Joseph Smith Storey was married to Alice Eliza Ellis (the parents of Florence Storey). That makes them Ephraim’s uncle and aunt, and the great-uncle and great-aunt of John Blake Storey.
Thank you, Suzanne!! I think you mean John Blake Storey so am clarifying in case someone comes across this in the future. I will reach out and see if I can get some feedback from family members on FamilySearch. Thank you, thank you!
Yes I meant BLAKE – I think I was a victim of autocorrect!
I thought it might be! It gets us all. 🙂
