The Jesse Kilgore Blake you refer to is not the one I was talking about, but I would assume he was probably a descendant. The Jesse I was referring to was born in 1817 and died in 1875. I don't have any other Jesse's in my files, but as I said, he was probably a descendant. You might try looking in census record for 1900 or 1880 to find your Jesse.
Sorry I can't be more help.
