  • Notes 
    • Assuming the Colonel's first and only settlement was on land south of the Holston, he probably did not arrive there until after 1778 as no Blevins names appeared on the 1778 Washington County, NC tax list. One source of evidence as to the time of the Colonel's move and his place of origin is the 1850 census. William R. Blevins, a proven son of Colonel William survived for the 1850 census in which he indicated that he was born about 1774 in Virginia.
