William's sister, Abigail, was also married on 26 Dec 1821.

2.  Message #365 in the Blount Family Genealogy Forum (online at GenForum.com) in which it states that the marriage bond of Delila BLOUNT and James ROBERTS was attested to "by James H. Shankland with Athalia Blount."  The connection between Athalia BLOUNT and James SHANKLAND supports her connection to the SHANKLANDs and to our subject, William BLOUNT, as her son.  In the 1820 Census, Athaliah (ROBERTS) BLOUNT, her children, and her grandchildren were the only BLOUNTs living in Nicholas Co., KY.

Given that the adult female is older than William, she may not be William's wife, Hessy, but other kin or hired help living in to care for the children.
