Ingleside was bounded on the east by the shores of Lake Miccosukee and would have been bound on the west by Joel's mother's Blakely Plantation. Today, the land is County Road 59 (Veterans Memorial Drive).

Joel C. Blake was 29 years old in 1860. He married Laura Parish, some relation to his mother. Joel's Ingleside Plantation came into existence when Joel Blake purchased land to the east of Blakely Plantation. Blake joined the Confederacy and was killed on July 2, 1863 at the Battle of Gettysburg.
