I am the 5x grandchild of Lydia sizemore and James Blevins. I am wondering if any one has any info on this family line stemming from ash co. N.C. and Grayson co. Virginia. Especially on the white top Cherokee tribe connection.  I do know that Lydia Sizemore  daughter of Indian chief old Ned Sizemore married James Blevins

I'd like to contact anyone who descends circa 1850's Ashboro, North Carolina, area Blevins. They may have had earlier Guilford/Rockingham Counties, N.C., Blevins connections?

I'm already a member of DAR. I am trying to find information on James Blevins who married Hannah Lyon (s) and his line for my husband SAR application. I did find his pension papers on Heritage Quest and hitting road blocks as to other documentatin that is required, marriage, birth, death records for him and the others in the line. The only sure things I have so far is my husband's birth certificate, our marriage license, my in-laws marriage and death certificates, an obituary for his grandparents (John William Blevins and Nancy Wilson). That is where the researching stop. Have not got copies of their death certificates as Kentucky doesn't seem to be able to find them. Also I'm trying to find obituaries on James Blevins and Pheobe Stephens. Can anyone help me. At present time we cannot travel to Kentucky and do the research ourselves.

Seeking information on Frederick Blevins. He is buried in Wooster Cemetery in Danbury CT 1909.   I can find no other record of him.  There is also a Charles H. Blevins buried there who died in 1918.

My Great Uncle was named for Frederick Blevins and that is why I am trying to tie him to the Russell family of Danbury CT.

From what I can find from husband is related to the same line as yours. Trying to find documentation for him to join the Sons of the Revolutionary. I am currently working on my side for the DAR. Running into brick walls on both accounts. Would like to share what I have. Although some has not been documentated. Email me at:

I am related to the Blevins line from southern way-back grandpa, James Blevins, was a Revolutionary War soldier..James was married to Hannah (O. Lyons)..I am interested in info and have info to share...I would like to know where this line originally came from as I have read and heard different stories..It gets rough with so many in these families having same names and such!!!
