Although 8 children have been reported in this marriage, we can only list 7.

After the death of Mary, Frank married Miss. Lilly Moses of Battle Lake, Minn. in 1915.

Note:  Mary Janette was not of age so Henry Blackwell (her father) signed for her.  Witnesses were Emma V. Blackwell (wife of Stephen VanLoon who remarried to James W. Blackwell 10.2.6) and Henry Blackwell )10.2.5).  Mary Janette was married by John Salmon

Mary Janette Blackwell 10.2.5.1 married Frank B. Mackenzie and had 7 children.  Upon giving birth to their last child, Mary Jane on Christmas Day of 1900, Mary Janette died.  It was reported that the child died also.  However, that was not the case.  It was learned that the baby did survive the birth.  It has long been questioned as to what became of the child. (Photo 61)  A letter provided by Marilee Larkey (Cohoes) has provided as good part of that answer.   To read the letter exactly as it was written click on Letter #7

Important Information
It was Mary Janette (10.2.5.1) that died during child birth on Dec 25 1900.
It was reported that her child also died.  However, the family reports that the daughter, named Mary Jane (10.2.5.1.7) was actually taken and adopted by Frank Morse.  ( She was raised by her father's sister and renamed Marie Morse ) She later married
Sidney OliverHer photo is below at age 10 (see Photos 61 - 64 - 65)

More Information on the Child of Mary Jeanette Blackwell

Mary Janette Mackenzie - Blackwell died on December 25, 1900 during childbirth.  The child, named Mary Jane Blackwell was taken to the home of William Minor Blackwell because his wife, Wilhelmina, had recently gave birth and was able to care for the immediate needs of the child.  About a week later, Ruth Mackenzie Morse (sister to John H. Mackenzie) came and took the child home to live with her and her husband, Frank Morse and was adopted by the couple.  They resided in Alexandria, South Dakota.  The child grew up as Marie Morse.  Marie Morse eventually met and married Sidney Oliver. View


Kathryn Johnson, a resident of Minnesota and a provider of information to this website, has found newspaper clippings explaining why there was such confusion over the apparent death of Mary Janette and her daughter. 
"We had a newspaper account of the death of Mary Janette on Dec. 25, 1900.  That report said her death was followed by her newborn baby.  I recently located the following newspaper account from the Alexandria Citizen of Jan. 10, 1901.- Page 8, Col. 4:  It states - """We were wrongly informed in regard to McKenzie's newborn baby and told that it died at the same time as its mother.  The baby is still living and doing well.""".

JOHN H MACKENZIE - FATHER-IN-LAW TO MARY JANETTE BLACKWELL
MACKENZIE INFORMATION - INDIAN FIGHTER

JOHN H MACKENZIE - FATHER-IN-LAW TO MARY JANETTE BLACKWELL

Kathryn Johnson has also been able to find confirmation to confirm the birth rite of Frank Mackenzie.  It had been reported that Franklin was the son of William L. Mackenzie.  Another account stated he was the son of John McKenzie.  Kathryn has found a report in the Alexandria Post of Jan. 24, 1901 an item that was in turn, from the Hutchinson, Minnesota Newspaper which stated that the wife of Franklin McKenzie (Mary Janette) had died.  It also states that the McKenzie's came to Hutchinson in 1856 and from there came to Holmes City.  It says Franklin was the son of John H. McKenzie and a nephew of William L MacKenzie and Susie Mackenzie.  (See Photo 103 below of John H. Mackenzie)
Comment:  Hutchinson was the location of a major celebration of all the old Indian Fighters.  See John H. Mackenzie.  (Photo)

The Father-in-Law of Mary Janette was John H. Mackenzie.  His story is right out of a Hollywood movie.  He was an Indian Fighter, Secret Service Agent, Trapper, and overall, was typical of our vision of the heroic pioneer.
See John H Mackenzie

Indian Uprising
The Indian Uprising in Minnesota that involved our family, ended with 486 white settlers being killed.  (Other reports state higher numbers)  On December 26 - 1862, 38 Indians were hung at Mankato, Minnesota.  It all started over the Indians not receiving the money promised them for the land they sold to the Government.  It is reported that during the time, local writers supported the claim of the Indians against the Government.   See Below

Interesting information
He was an interesting person and was obviously a brave and resourceful individual.

Murders committed by two Indians put them on the run. 
The story of their capture and hanging is interesting.
John H. Mackenzie made the capture of these two killers.

OLDEST LIVING SETTLER OF NORTH DAKOTA DIES
Frank B. MacKenzie

With the passing of Frank B. Mackenzie of Gwinner at the Britton hospital on Sunday, Aug. 13. 1939. the last chapter in the eventful career of North Dakota's oldest living settler came to a close.  A recent survey by the state historical society proclaimed him the oldest living settler in the state.  Heart failure was responsible for his death.   Frank B. Mackenzie was born March 2, 1857 in old Fort Snelling, now Minneapolis, Minnesota.  His father worked in Minnesota, Dakota and Canada so his boyhood was spent in the Northwest.  He first came to what is now North Dakota in 1865.  He led an adventurous life and once in company with his father and others was taken captive by the Chippewa Indians at Fort Ransom.  Two days later however, he and his companions
were released.  In October 18, 1879, he was united in marriage to Miss Mary Blackwell.  To this union, eight children were born; four boys and four girls.  His wife passed away on December 26, 1900.  His second marriage was in 1915 to Miss Lily Moses of Battle Lake, Minnesota.
The deceased came to Dakota the second time in 1884 and operated a hand-fed threshing machine in this section of the state.  Since 1904 he has resided continuously at Gwinner, North Dakota.  He was a carpenter and builder by trade.  The deceased is survived by his wife and four children as follows.
    Mrs. Ruth Cohoes of Zimmerman, MN.
    Mrs. Sarah Graves of Alexandria, S. Dakota
    Mrs. Mary Oliver of Peoria, Ill.
    Ernest Mackenzie of Milnor.
    Also, seventeen grandchildren and two brothers in Oklahoma.
Funeral services were conducted from the family home in Gwinner Wednesday afternoon with Rev. James A. Sanaker of Milnor officiating.  Burial was in the Milnor Lake View cemetery.
