The Blevins men were among the Overmountain Men from Pittsylvania, Henry County, Virginia to settle the Holston in Sullivan County, Tennessee. As with all information there are still many differences in agreement on the Blevins family line. This is the best approximation on my part and my sources. Thank you!
