      Conclusion: the above census 1820, 1830 and 1840 all fit the family known in the Glaspie/Swank works as William and Ann Williams Blakeney. First and middle name transposition was and is not uncommon. Son James was probably born in 1819 [not 1820] and daughter Martha were probably born 1820 [not 1821].
