Pete Blake

From "The History of the Upper Mississippi Valley" published in 1881, available online at Google Books

I know I've heard of Pete Blake in Buckman. Was his wife Christina MUELLER? Maybe I'm thinking of this couples' son... And, now, I'm trying to remember who mentioned Pete Blake to me lately....
It's a tough job, but somebody'd gotta do
