Mary (Polly) Blevins (1807, married Peach Taylor),
Susan Blevins (1809, married William S. Russell),
John T. Blevins (1810, married Jane Adams Darwin), and
Lucretia F.Blevins (1813, married Henson Thomas and William Lillard).

They moved to a part of Rhea County that later became Meigs County, Tennessee.

David died in 1830 at about the age of 54 in Rhea County, Tennessee.

Sullivan County is in far northeast corner of Tennessee between North Carolina and Virginia and was originally part of those states. It was formed in 1779 when it was divided from Washington County.
