Dear ?

Welcome to the group. I believe the concensus is that the Elisha Blevins

that married Alsey Tackett was born abt. 1794 a son of Levi Blevins who
a son of Daniel Jr. If you have further information indicating Elisha
was a
son of James born ca. 1751 I would like to know more about it.

Below I have pasted Owen Blevins' information on the Elisha that married

Alsey Tackett. I believe he has this correctly as he was carefully
researching the Blevins lines long ago.

Blevins, Elisha b. abt 1809 d. abt 1853 father Levi
Mother Mary_ _ _ ? m. Alsey
Tackett 7
Sep 1826 6

Below I have pasted this family. These include the Elisha and Ephriam
Ephraim) that have been mentioned recently as being sons of James
Blevins b.
1751, and I agree that they did live in close proximity to James and his

descendants over a long period of time. This may be due to their being
distantly related, rather than closely related.

Levi Blevins (5th gen.) (Daniel Jr.-4, Daniel #2-3, William #2-2,
#1-1) born abt. 1779 in Virginia. He m. Mary _____ ? b. 1781 in Va. Levi

Blevins lived in Scott Co. Va, and Lawrence and Johnson Co., Ky. He died

abt. 1855 - 1860 in Johnson Co., Ky.

Sixth gen. children of Levi and Mary Blevins have been reported as;

1. Nathan b. abt. 1804 in Lee Co., Virginia m. Rebecca Wooten
2. Ephraim b. abt. 1805 in Lee Co., Virginia m. Letitha Davidson
3. Rachel b. abt. 1807 in Lee Co., Virginia m. William Wilson
4. Elisha b. abt. 1809 in Lee Co., Virginia m. Alsey Tackett
5. Daniel b. abt. 1812 Scott Co., Va. m. Sara Cory
6. Mary b. 1814 Scott Co., Va. m. Joel Cerley 1838 Barry Mo.
7. Sarah b. 1816 Scott Co., Va. m. Daniel Collier 1855 Lawrence Co.,
8. Samuel b. 1818 Scott Co., Va. m Mary Mollett
9. James b. 1821 Lawrence Co., Ky m. Elizabeth Mollett 1838 Lawrence
10. Margaret b. 1825 Lawrence Co., Ky m. James Mollett 1834 Lawrence
11. Emily b. 1827 Lawrence Co., Ky m. James Price 1843 Lawrence Co., Ky

12. Ellen b. 1827 Lawrence Co., Ky m. Stephen Williamson 1850 Johnson
13. Thomas A. b. 1829 Lawrence Co., Ky m. Ruth Gibson 1846 Johnson Co.,

I hope this helps.
