Dead Fred's Genealogy Photo Archive, a free, fun photo genealogy research web site devoted to helping you visualize your heritage!

Dear readers,

We need your help. 90% of our expenses are covered by donations averaging $10, though not many visitors contribute. If each visitor reading this right now gave $2, we would have enough to operate DeadFred for a year. That's right, the price of a bottle of soda would do it. If DeadFred is helpful to you, please take a moment to help us. We are a very small group of volunteers serving thousands of readers daily with very little outside support. DeadFred is a place to share and discover the faces of your ancestors. The funds we receive go toward maintaining and improving your chances of discovery. Please help us so we can continue to help you.

Thank you,
Joe Bott

Comments: Ainsworth Emery Blount (Nee: ) | United States | 1851-1900 | Comments: This picture of Professor Ainsworth Emery Blount appears on page 82 of The American Breeders Magazine, vol.III, no.2, 1912. There is a biographical sketch of him on pages 81-84 of that volume. Please see that reference for more details. Mr. Blount was born at Brainard, East Tennessee on 6 Feb. 1831. As a boy he spent time with Cherokee Indians and learned some of their language. His mother was Harriet Ellsworth Blount (granddaughter of Oliver Ellsworth, first Chief Justice of the US). He graduated Dartmouth College in 1859 and became a teacher. Later he served in the American Civil War. He married the daugher of Dr. J. F. Hall of Portsmouth, NH in 1865. After the war he began serious work in the breeding of cereal crops. He later was at the Colorado State Agricultural College and then he worked at the agriculural station in NM. Failing health caused him to retire and he spent his last years among family and friends in Wellesley, Mass. He died on 21 Feb. 1911. That is all the information I have on this picture. I am not researching this line, just saw the photo and thought I'd post it.
