Birth:  bef. 1775
Death:  ca. 1808, Fairfield Co., OH

Wife:  Athaliah "Atha" ROBERTS
Birth:  bef. 1775

"Athaliah" is a scriptural name, so I suspect other variants are misspellings or misreadings she is called "Athalia" on her daughter Delilah's marriage bond.

1.  Delilah BLOUNT, b. 1800
2.  William BLOUNT, b. 1800/1
3.  Azariah BLOUNT, b. ca. 1802 
4.  (Child) BLOUNT, b. ca. 1803 

5.  Abigail BLOUNT, b. ca. 1805

One of the two unnamed children had passed away by 1820; the surviving one was a daughter.

Redding is the only BLUNT/BLOUNT indexed in "Ohio" on this CD.

4.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1810 (Broderbund CD-313):  not found.  The 1810 Census of Ohio was destroyed (except for Washington Co.), so if Widow Athaliah was still there in Ohio, we couldn't prove it, except possibly via tax rolls.  On the other hand, as a newly widowed mother with six young children, she was likely staying with her kinfolk, probably back in Kentucky, so wouldn't have been head-of-household in any case.

These data indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 16-18 1801-1804 = Azariah (b. ca. 1802)
1 male 19-25* 1794-1801 = William (b. 1800/1)
2 females 10-15 1804-1810 = Abigail (b. 1805)
= Daughter
1 female 16-25 1794-1804 = Delilah (b. 1800/1)
1 female 45 or over in or bef. 1775 = Athaliah
*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25; therefore, any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.  By subtracting the number in column three from the number in column four, you can create an age class "19-25."
