a. Continued:   "The next record we found was the census of 1790 in Allegheny-Washington Co., Penn. John had two sons under sixteen years and his Wife, Martha. The family left Northumberland Co., Penn, and moved to Kentucky. In the tax list of 1800 we find in Harrison Co., Ky., where the south fork of Licking flows from Bourbon Co. In the tax list of 1807 he was in Bourbon Co. and had three horses. In 1809, Martha Blakeney had three horses and three colts; by this we surmise that John had died and she was the widow. The census of Bourbon Co. in 1810 lists Martha Blakeney as head of household with two sons, one between 10 and 16 years, and another between 16 and 26 years. Martha was under 45 years of age. John T. Blakeney, her son, was also listed as head of household in the 1810 census. This was census was finished in 1811 and he was listed as between 16 and 26 years of age, as was his wife. Also listed was a daughter under 10 years.
John T. Blakeney had one mare on the tax list of 1810. In 1811, two horses were listed. William Blakeney also had two horses in the tax list of 1811. His age was given as 21 years. William was evidently the other son mentioned in the 1790 census in Pennsylvania."
