Charles Blair was born somewhere around Clinton Co. (or around Malone, Belmont Center way) in 1881. He married Annie La Cross (or La Croix) who was from N. Hero, VT. and they settled in Beekmantown, Chazy and finally Rouse's Point. Charles' father was named Ludovic or Ludovice Blair. Charles and Annie had several children inlcuding Florence, May, Mary, Laura, Arthur, Elmer, Clifford and Wilmer. In 1921 after or during the birth of another child, Annie died in Rouse's Pt. Charles met Lucy Mesick and started another family. At that time, he took his two youngest boys by Annie to the St. Joseph's orphanage in Ogdensburg, NY where they remained until they came of age. Charles and Lucy had two children, Victor and Myrtle - and in 1925, they ALSO put those children into St. Joseph's orphanage. In the late twenties, Lucy Mesick Blair came back and took possession of her children and they went to Canada before finally settling in Vermont. She never mentioned what happened to her husband, Charles. None of Charles' children ever heard from him again after he abandoned them. However, it recently came to light that he had died in the mid-sixties in Mystic/Stonington, CT where he had been living since the late 1930s. He was 86. If anyone has any information about this man, please contact me. Thanks, Linda
