This information provided by Gwen Gwen Plyler

James Blevins was still alive age 85 in McCamorin Twp. Martin Co. roll 160, page 13, in the 1850 census. He was the head of household. There are also: Elindor Blevins age 45, Lucinda age 40, James age 19, Lucinda age 18, and John age 12. I had thought his pension ended in 1843, it must have been an increase. Did the county line move between 1840-1850? I checked for a will in Lawrence Co. but I didn't know he had moved after 1830. I'll let you know if I find anything.
