Blevins' Genealogy Page

Updated January 15, 2002

About Our Family Research


I am researching all connections to Adams, Allen, Ammons, Andrews, Armstrong, Arp, Asbury, Asimov, Atkins, Bailey, Baker, Barkley, Barnard, Barrs, Baruch, Beckley, Beers, Belden, Bing, Blevins, Bonnell, Bosworth, Breece, Brotherton, Brown, Bulkley, Bundy, Burr, Bush, Carbrera, Caldwell, Caro, Carter, Chaudron, Chaulott, Childress, Connally, Coopender, Cooper, Corbin, Crispin, Cutt, David, Dean, Dickey, Dillard, Dittman, Douglas, Dowse, Dugger, DuVol(DeVal,DeVol), Einstein, Ely, Ensor, Essinger, Estes, Evans, Falcon, faust, Fletcher, Fowler, Frazer, Gansworth, Garland, Gibson, Giles, Gille, Glass, Golin, Golphin, Goodman, Guerra, Guillier, Gwin, Hamby, Hart, Hartman, Hauser, Hennessey, Hickman, Hidalgo, Holme, Holt, Hopkins, Home, Howard, Howle, Humphreys, Hyrne, James, Jennings, Jones, Kemme, Koch, Kohn, Lagrange, Lamar, Lane, Leggett, Lehmann, Lewis, Little, Lockwood, Low, Lowry, Machado, Maura, McKay, McPherson, Merton, Miller, Mitchell, Moore, Moos, Morrell, Morris, Neale, Newton, Nicholson, Norton, Obernauer, Odingsell, Park, Parker, Parks, Pate, Perry, Phillips, Phipps, Pipkin, Poissant, Proctor, Read, Reynolds, Roberson, Roberts, Robinson, Rogers, Ross, Rowan, Rush, Samuel, Sands, Scheuren, Screven, Seawell, Sharp, Sherril, Skaggs, Slay, Smith, Stamps, Stephens, Steppach, Stewart, Stollenwerck, Stout, Strubbe, Sturgis, Taylor, Teva, Thale, Thomas, Thompson, Virgin, Wagoner(Waggoner), Walden, Ward, Waters, Watson, Weaver, Westmoreland, Whitaker, Wilkins, Winn, Witter, Wray, Wright and Young.

I have a fair amount on the Blevins, Howard, Jones, Winn, Sturgis, Parker, Asbury & Robinson names.

I am most desperate for information on Henry Crawford Bailey & his parents.

Several distant cousins & I are in the process of reclaiming & restoring a Blevins family cemetery known as, Pleasant Valley Cemetery, located in Selma, Dallas County, Alabama. Or more precisely @:

32 30' 10"N, 86 59' 59"W

or

www.topozone.com/map.asp?z=16&n=3595975&e=500024&s=25&size=l

The cemetery is located at the RED crosshair symbol.

We have recently had a fence erected there and in the process have discovered three more graves. These three additional graves bring the total known buried there to seventeen. While we have no information or names to associate with these graves, we have every reason to believe they are Blevins.

I look forward to sharing any & all data I am fortunate enough to possess with all interested parties. I especially hope to meet more cousins!!
