  • Notes 
    • Obituary taken from the Western Methodist: " Tribute of Respect; Harrison Blevins was born in Meigs county, Tenn., July 23d, 1826; was married to Miss Nancy Blevins, March 23d 1848; in 1849 he removed to Independence county, Ark.; he made a public profession of religion at Salem church, White county, in 1868, and joined the M. E. Church, South, in which he lived an exemplary member until his death, which occurred December 15th 1881. In the death of Bro. Blevins, the Church has lost a faithful and efficient member; the neighborhood, in which he lived, a good and tried friend; and his wife, a devoted and loving husband. Soon after joining the Church he was elected Steward, and acted in that capacity until death. He was a member of the last session of the White River conference; while attending its meetings he was taken sick, was granted leave of absence, and came home to die. He told some of the brethren when he left, that it would be the last conference he would ever attend on earth; but blessed be God, he has gone up to the General conference, to enjoy the blessings of an endless life with all of God's redeemed ones. To the afflicted wife we tender our heartfelt sympathies, and pray that God may give her grace to bear submissively, this the saddest of all afflictions. John Peebles --|L. G.
