Willie Blount
Birth: Apr. 18, 1767
Bertie County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Sep. 10, 1835
Davidson County
Tennessee, USA

Tennessee Governor. Served as Governor of Tennessee from 1809 to 1815. Half brother of Governor William Blount. In 1813, Governor Blount called for several thousand volunteers to put down the Indian uprising that had led to the massacre of 250 men, women and children at Ft. Mims, Alabama. Headed by General Andrew Jackson, this force ultimately defeated the warring Indians at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend. William Blount ran for Governor again in 1827, but was defeated by Sam Houston. He was the great-great-grandfather of another Tennesee Governor, H. H. McAlister.
