Mr. Blount (pronounced "Blunt") was the first Mayor of East Point, Ga. and a founder of the Capital City club in Atlanta. He was a member of St. Luke's Episcopal Church, the Capital City Club, the Piedmont Driving Club and the Druid Hills Golf Club.

He was born in Talbotton Georgia to John Thomas and Louise Kilpatrick Blount. His father was an intimate childhood friend of Confederate General Benning.

At the age of 16, he became a traveling salesman for a plow blade manufacturer and three years later in 1878, he went to Atlanta and formed a partnership with D.P. Ferguson to manufacture plow blades and stocks.

Eventually the Blount-Furguson combine was dissolved and A.W. Hill entered the business. It then operated as "Blount & Hill" in the manufacture of Farm Wagons and Carriages. in 1884 the firm was moved to East Point and after several years was taken over entirely by Mr. Blount, who changed it's name to the "White Hickory Wagon Company."

Later he manufactured carriages and buggies under the firm name of "Blount Carriage and Buggy Company."
