an uncle?

I am sorting through the 1830 census. I found Peter Pearsol (Pursel). He lived in Jefferson Township, as he would 50 years later. The neat fact? Next door to him were Francis Blare and James Blair. Those aren't middle names, those are last names. Perhaps Francis Blair Pearsol (Peter's son) was named after... his uncle? Could Peter's wife, Sara, have been Sara Blair?
