General Notes for Child Armstead Blake

On the Death record of William Young, he stated that he was a step-son. In his Marriage Record, he stated that his parents were Lemurah(Samuel?) and Lucy Blake. Is it possible that Sarah had married his father first and then William Young second? That would make Sarah his step-mother and William Young his step-mother's husband, which he might refer to as a step-father.
