My Mystery Great Great Grandpa Nathan Blevins, son of Linkhorn Blevins
We had our family all figured out except for one great grandpa and we finally located him. Seems as if he took his second wife, Matilda Steele and left Wise, Va. His children from his first wife, Mary Ann Green went also and were raised by Matilda and Nathan Blevins in McDowell Co., West Va. Nathan Blevins was his name and he was a son of Linkhorn Blevins and Sarah Belcher of Wise, Va. His father was Daniel Blevins and Sarah Belcher( Yes, another Sarah Belcher), related????? and then Daniel"s father was Daniel Blevins and unknown. Wells Blevins seemes to be the likely canidate for Daniel"s father from what I have been able to uncover. Some say that he could be James Blevins and Elizabeth Ward from Grayson, Va. too. This has to be proven by some of us. The Blevins DNA confirms that my research is correct so far when it comes to Linkhorn Blevins descendants. I have talked to a lot of Blevins descendants and the lineage is there for sure. Ashe county, N.C. is where the older Daniel lived among other places. James, Daniel and Wells Bleins lived here for years. Other surnames are Ratliff, Case. Hall, Potter, James, Belcher, Mulins, Bentley, Hughes and Blevins from both my parents lineage. They were cousins!
My Dad died and never knew this but surely they knew it was possible with the same last name.
