It's hard to say why Elizabeth, and not Margaret, is given as the owner, but surely this has to be Beverly's daughter they are the only BLOUNTs in the county, and they owned one female slave in 1840.  It is feasible that Beverly willed his slave to his daughter, for some reason.

6.  Winchester Cemetery, Clark Co., KY (online in the Archives of the Clark County, Kentucky, USGenWeb; contributed by Jeni Chism):
Winchester Cemetery Is Linked With Year Of Plague
By: Lucile G. Hamilton
Taken from the Winchester Sun

The old cemetery on East Broadway... another stone was inscribed with the name Beverly Blunt...

7.  Query by Shana Proffitt posted to the Spotsylvania County, Virginia, web site (online at RootsWeb.com):
The poster believes Beverly may be the son of Michael & Elizabeth BLUNT of Berkeley Parish, Spotsylvania Co., VA, and that he may thus be the sister of Susannah "Sukey" BLUNT who married Leroy HAMILTON on 12 Jan 1800 in St. Thomas Parish, Orange Co., VA.  Leroy & Sukey moved first to Fayette Co., KY, then Clark Co., KY, ca. 1804.  Mentions that Beverly was a grocer in Winchester.
