Here is the obituary of Elizabeth Blekkenk - wife of John H. Blekkenk. The information provides some addition information on the Blekkenk girls, but is most interesting for an omission - where is the oldest son Abraham Blekkenk? Was there some family tension that had estranged Abraham and his sisters? A new mystery to solve!
