There are two Martha Blizzards living in east-central Ohio over the same time period.  This one, whose death record and gravestone lists her birth in 1947 and the other, whose marriage license to William Butler in 1869 says she was under the age of 18 (thus born after 1851).  In spite of this evidence of her age, Martha Butler was listed in subsequent censuses as being born in 1848, 1849 or 1850.  I believe Martha (Blizzard) Chaney was the daughter of William and Maria Blizzard and living in Frazeysburg/Jackson Twp prior to her marriage to Joseph (somewhat supported by the fact that Joseph and Martha also lived in Frazeysburg for a while after their marriage) but without more specific evidence for Martha's parentage, I'm not listing the 1850, '60, or '70 censuses for her.
