I don't want to echo too much of what Carolyn has provided. I'm a direct descendant of the William Henry you've described and pretty much can account for 95% of all his descendants to date. He is the son of Nathan and Mary Rogers. It's this Nathan, his father, that "may" be the brother of Linkhorn, James, and Levi, and a son of Daniel and Sarah, or he may be a close cousin of them and a nephew of Daniel and Sarah. In any case, I'd be happy to share what I know for a fact and help you with sorting out the remaining speculations and reasoning for and against, possibly including some of the missing males you may be speaking about.

This is to all the veteran Blevins researchers and anyone else who knows this line. Alot of you have heard of the Levi Blevins b 1817 Ky or Tn. He married Elizabeth Young in Tishomingo Ms 1840. These are my gr gr grandparents. I have found something that I would like to see if anybody knows any info or can tell me where to go on this line. I have found a Wm Henry Blevins b 1841 VA. I first find him in 1850 at age 9 with his mother Mary Blevins age 48 Tn, and his brothers & sisters, Candes, Linkhorn, Daniel, Thomas, James & Fletcher. I follow Wm all the way to Crawford Co. AR where spends the rest of his life. He and his wife Cynthia are buried there. The point to this is, I do believe there is a strong connection between this Wm Henry Blevins and my Levi Blevins b 1817. I dont think they are brothers unless they are half brothers, but I do believe that possibly Wm's father could be brother to my Levi Blevins. The reason for this is that when Wm Henry Blevins & h!
wife and family, move to Crawford Co Ar. They are right next to, or in between all the other family of Levi Blevins, like James Henry Young, which is the gr nephew of Elizabeth Young Blevins and James Phillips, who is the brother of my gr grandmother Nancy Phillips Blevins. Also the Cradducks are close by too, which are connected to my Blevins family. I think that the father of Wm Henry Blevins is Linkhorn Blevins, and I would like some suggestions from anyone from this line or some thoughts about any missing Blevins males from this line. Thanks for your time.
