Ann Blades would have been the name from Ann’s second or third husband or an affair, before 1850, the first husband most likely would have been a McFarland. William would have been a son of John Stewart’s sister (??), who most likely married a Graham. No sister is listed in their family between 1860 and 1880, who most likely married in the 1850s to a Graham.
In the Ligonier Borough census there is a Sarah A. Blades (most likely A is for Ann). Sarah is the most likely female that married a Graham, who had a William that showed up in the June 12th 1880 Ligonier Twp census.
