Biography
1. Edward Bliven. Born in Wales circa 1643. Died in April of 1718, in Westerly, RI.
THE EARLY BLIVENS. A great deal of this file comes from that written by William Warren Bliven's folder entitled "The Early Blivens". The earliest mention of the Bliven name in Rhode Island so far as known, is the record, in Westerly of the marriage of Edward Bliven and Isabel Maccoon, daughter of John, 2 Oct, 1691. Edward's ear mark was recorded under date of 4 Feb 1697. He was admitted a freeman (i.e., a voter) of the town 13 Jun 1698, and was mentioned in a list of freemen dated 1 May 1704. In July 1704 he received from the town 100 acres of land. In 1705 he was Town Sergeant. (Town Records - New Book 1661-1707, p39. He was impressed for Queen Anne's War - n.d. - General Register of the Society of Colonial Wars 1899-1902. 821pp. New York, 1902. October the 2nd the 1691: then Edward Bleavin and Isabel Maccoon both of Westerly was joined together in marriage by and before me. Tobias Saunders conservator of the peace. Entered June 20, 1742 by W. Babcock TC. Page 121, Book 2, Westerly Town Records. 3 Jan 1707/8 he bought for 10 Pounds 100 acres of land near the great bridge from Ninecraft, Sachem of the Narragansetts. 9 Feb 1707/8 he bought from Job Babcock 100 acres more. Also 8 Nov 1715 he bought of Edward Larkin 4 1/2 acres of swamp land. His farm was mortgaged 10 Oct 1715, and the mortgage discharged after his death by his widow Isabel, 12 May 1721. Edward and Isabel were Seventh Day Baptists. Isabel's name appears on the church rolls in 1708, 1712, 1718 and 1740. Edward's name is found there 5th of 9th month, 1712. Edward died early in 1718. His will, made 22 Aug 1716 was proved 30 April 1718. He gives the land bought of Ninecraft to his son Edward, the homestead to his son James, it being the 100 acres bought of Job Babcock, and six acres also bought of Job Babcock and the land bought of Edward Larkin to his son John. He directs that the Homestead be cleared of the mortgage for 50 Pounds and that his son John shall on coming of age pay his sisters Jane and Rachel 10 Pounds each. His widow Isabel and Capt. John Babcock were executors. Letters were granted them 2 May 1718. On 2 June 1718 Isabel was fined 30 shillings by the Council, as a meeting of that body has been called by her omission. 26 Nov 1742 Commissioners set off her thirds in her husband's estate. Her will made 14 Oct 1742, was proved May 28, 1753. It names her daughters Jane Clark, Rachel Sa(u)nders, her daughter-in-law Mercy Bliven and granddaughter Mercy Bliven, and her sons Edward and James Bliven. (Her son John had died in 1728). Contemporary with Edward in the same town was James Bliven an inn-keeper. On 22 Aug 1698 he applied for a license to keep public entertainment and received it. It was renewed as ofdate. 22 Aug 1700, on 17 Feb 1700/01, 6 Jul 1702 and 2 Aug 1703. 22 Jan 1702/3 he was greanted 100 acres by the town on consideration that he had lived a considerable time in the town. 29 Jan 1702/03 his ear mark was recorded. (His name appears as that of a witness on 14 Jul 1704, 6 Oct, 31 Oct, and 1 Dec 1705). 13 Apr 1708 he bought for 5 Pounds 100 acres of land from Ninecraft, and the next day conveyed the title to his son James after the decease of himself and wife. 12 Aug 1714 James Sr and his wife Ann, and James Jr with his wife Margery Acres, sold this land to Daniel Maccoon for 56 Pounds. On 1 Jan 1714/15 James Jr and Margery appeared to swear to their signature on this deed, and 25 Jan 1714/15 James Sr appeared alone for the same purpose. There is a record which seems to show that the wife of the younger James was Margery Tosh, dau. of XXXX. No further record of these Blivens appears, but tradition alludes to the removal to South Kingston and Newport of an early branch of the family, which tradition I suppose to relate to the younger James. From all the circumstances I conjecture that the elder James was an older brother of Edward.

Edward Bliven married 10/02/1691 Westerly, RI to Isabel Maccoon (ca. 1676-1753), daughter of John Macoone, 2 Oct 1691, in Westerly, RI (Westerly, RI Town Records, Book 2, Page 121). Isabel died, circa 1753, in Westerly, RI. She was the daughter of John, formerly of Aberdeenshire, Scotland. (John Maccoone -18 May 1669 -... list of Westerly inhabitants ).
Isabel Maccoon’s father was John Maccoone (ca. 1630-1705). Her mother was either Mary (ca. 1643-aft. 1705) or Deborah (Bush).
Isabel and Edward were both members of the First Sabbatarian Church of Hopkinton, RI. Sep 1712. Vol 10, VRRI, p 95.

Notes
!VRRI: Arnold & Beaman. 1988 IGI (extractions). According to "Representative Men And Old
Families Of Rhode Island" published in Chicago, IL in 1908 by J.H. BEERS & Co., the immigrant
BLIVEN ancestors were three brothers: Joshua, James, and Edward BLIVEN, all coming from
England and arriving in Salem, MA before 1650. According to this account, James remained in
Salem, Edward's whereabouts are not mentioned, and Joshua is reported as being in Newport by
1669, and it mentions that his sons, James and Edward, both settled in Westerly, RI.
This lineage begins with Edward-1 BLIVEN of Westerly, RI. NOTE:
There is an Edward BLEVIN in Oyster Bay, LI, NY who makes his mark as a witness to a deed of
James Blevin, dated 1687. An Edmon Blevin also is a witness 12 Apr 1687.
Three brothers, (Edward, James, & John or Joshua), came from England to America, probably landing at Salem. Upon arriving in America or possibly earlier, Edward & James changed their last name spelling to Bliven. Edward Bleavin, (Bliven) born in Wales, ca.1643 and died in 1718 at Westerly, Rhode Island. Edward sailed from Wales to Oyster Bay, Long Island in his own ship called the "Arabella" in 1684. This was his second trip from England. Edward married Isabel Maccoon from Aberdeenshire, Scotland, in Oct. 2, 1691. Very little is known about John/Joshua and James. John spelled his last name Blethin and also Blevin. One account says that James went back to Wales after spending about a year in the colonies. Another account says that James had a son, James, who lived with his brother, first at Oyster Bay, Long Island, and then moved to Westerly, R.I. James family line is said to have died out with James and his son, James. "Representative Men And Old Families Of Rhode Island" published in Chicago, IL in 1908 by J.H. BEERS & Co. says that James remained in Salem and Joshua is reported as being in Newport by 1669, and it mentions that his sons, James and Edward, both settled in Westerly, RI. One of the earliest records of the Bliven family in America, is the conveyance of Property by James Bliven to Bridget Oliver, (widow of Thomas Oliver) in 1679 at Salem, where the original parchment was at one time displayed upon the walls of Essex Institute.

John Blevin 1 is the first of the Blevins ancestors in America. (The "s" was added to Blevins in the early 1700's). John Blevin arrived in Salem Massachusets about 1659. His son John Blevin 2, moved to Swansea, Massachusets shortly after 1700. Another son William Blevins 2 moved to Virginia. He married Agnes Walden and they settled in Virginia around 1741. His youngest son William Blevins3 married Ann Morrell. They left Pittsylvania Co., Virginia and settled in Sullivan Co., Tennessee around 1775; William signed the Watauga Purchase.
Children of William and Agnes Blevins.
* John Blevins3 is listed with William Blevins in The Overmountain Men by
Pat Anderson as being a Longhunter. Longhunters were men who explored
deep into the mountains of Tennessee and hunted for game; they ate the
meat and used the fur for trading. The name Longhunter was used because
they were gone for long periods of time. William and John are listed in
Ramsey's Annals of Tennessee as joining a party of fifteen, headed by
Elisha Walden, in 1761. And in 1763 they went deeper into Cumberland
Territory. Elisha Walden married a daughter of William Blevins.
* Armistead Blevins3
* Boneparte Blevins3
* William Blevins Jr.3
* Dillon Blevins.3

Dillon Blevins3 was born in Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, in March 1750. On
November 12, 1770 Dillon married Ann Armstrong in Virginia. Ann Armstrong
was born on May 21, 1750 and she died on October 22, 1844. Dillon is listed
in the Pittsylvania Tax list from 1767 (the first from this county). Dillon
served in the Revolutionary War in Henry Co., Va in 1777. He is on the first
list of persons renouncing all allegiance to George III, of England and
allegiance to Virginia. It is dated December 31, 1777 and signed by George
Waller. By 1796 Dillon is listed on the Sullivan Co., Tennessee Tax lists,
also on the 1797 list, with William, John, and Armstead. By 1809 Dillon was
in Madison Co., Missippi Territory. Dillon died in April 1836 in Dallas Co.,
Alabama.

Children of Dillon and Ann Armstrong Blevins.

* John Blevins4, b. January 7, 1795.

John Blevins4 Married Margaret Oldham Conally on February 24, 1825. Margaret
was born September 14, 1808.

Children of John and Margaret Blevins.

* Mary Jane Blevins5 b. July 9, 1826.
* John Faulkner Blevins5 b. January 13, 1828 born in Nashville and died
in Selma, Alabama.
* Ann Blevins5 b. December 29, 1829.
* William Armstrong Blevins5 b. February 18, 1831.
* Katherine Louise Blevins5 b. January 6, 1833.
* Parolee Pope Blevins5 b. December 11, 1834.
* Lucian Moore Blevins5 b. July 11, 1836.

John Lucian Blevins5 was born on July 24, 1817 in Hawkins Co., Tennessee. He
was raised by James P. McCarthy's family. He was an illegitimate son of John
Blevins4 and an older half-sibling of those listed above. When his son
Robert Lucian Blevins6 married Kate Bean it was common knowledge that he was
marrying a cousin; John L. Blevins mother could have been a Bean.

As a youth he was employed as a driver for the Great Eastern and Western
Stage Lines, operated by Absalom and William Kyle of Walnut Hill, Hawkins
Co., Tennessee. (James P. McCarthy was a nephew of Absalom Kyle and lived on
an adjoining plantation.) John L. Blevins, at eighteen, eloped with the
sixteen year old daughter of Absalom Kyle. They rode over the mountain to
Clinch and were married on October 29, 1835. Absalom refused to see them.
Stockley D. Mitchell of Rogersville went to Clinch and got them. He took
them to Minerva's Grandfather, Pharoah Cobb, at Cobb's Ford, and though the
old man fussed at their being such children, he took them in and kept them
until her parents relented.

In March 1838, though not yet of legal age, John Blevins was elected Clerk
of Hawkins Co., a position he had held by appointment since the resignation
of the previous clerk the preceding October. In 1846 and succeeding years he
operated a Tavern at Rogersville. In 1849 John Blevins had been elected
Clerk of the Bank of Tennessee at Rogersville; Absalom Kyle was the
President of the board at this bank.

In November 1854 the Blevins family had moved to Aberdeen Monroe Co.,
Missippi, where they had relatives. In 1856 they were back in Hawkins Co.,
and John Blevins bought Barsheba Cobb Kyle's dower interest in the Walnut
Hill place, including the Mansion House. They made their home there until
1874.

John Blevins was a strong Union Man; though his eldest son was a Major in
the Confederacy. It has been written that John lost in property, slaves and
horses over $100,000.00 from the war. A Confederate straggler, attempting to
steal his horse, shot John Blevins in the foot, causing him to limp the rest
of his life.

After the war John Blevins was appointed United States Marshal of the
Northern District in Mississippi by President Andrew Johnson. His term was
from 1866-1868 but his family remained at Walnut Hill. He appointed his
brother-in-law L.N. Kyle (an ex-confederate Captain) as his deputy and had
conspicuous success. After returning he twice represented Hawkins Co., in
the State House and the Senate in the 37th and 38th General Assemblies of
1871-75. He and his family left Walnut Hill December 1, 1874 and moved to a
log house near Mooresburg, Tennessee.

During his last years he was "greatly afflicted and nearly helpless from
paralysis or palsy". He was greatly beloved by all his wife's family and is
remembered as one of the kindest, most genial men that ever lived. He died
July 16, 1887 and his wife died September 14, 1889; both are buried at
Walnut Hill. Minerva Leah Kyle was born October 13, 1819.

The Blevins family fits the mold of a Civil War family with the first
daughter marrying a Union Soldier and two sons being in the Confederacy, and
there were daughters who married into the Confederacy. I bet their family
reunions were interesting.

Children of John Lucian and Minerva Leah Kyle Blevins.

* Parolee Pandora Blevins6, b. March 31, 1837. d. January 26, 1921 at
Waco Texas. On August 31, 1858 she married James Reid Pace, who was a

On September 29, 1881 she married Warren Leftwich Hudnall.

Absalom Kyle Blevins6 was born on January 19, 1841 in Hawkins Co., Tennessee
and was killed near Dallas, Georgia on May 27, 1864. In 1855 he attended the
McMinn Academy in Rogersville. In 1861 a Company of men was formed in
Rogersville. The Company was organized August 13, 1861 at Knoxville and
Absalom was elected Captain. It became Company E of the 29th Tennessee
Infantry. In 1863 Absalom was promoted to Major, and was succeeded as
Captain by his Uncle Leonidas Netherland Kyle.

Absalom was killed in battle with the Union near Dallas on a friday evening,
his remains were removed from the field and taken to Marietta, then to
Decatur, where he was temporary interrod. In a letter to Hugh G. Kyle, Bill
Tilson says he was there when Absalom Blevins was shot. He said that Absalom
was in front arranging the picket when a Federal Sharpshooter shot him
through the head. He lived for about two hours but was unconscious. Mrs.
Kate Miller Kyle of Knoxville had his sword.

Robert Lucian Blevins6 was born on March 9, 1846 at Walnut Hill, Hawkins
County. He died in Knoxville on May 14, 1933. He married Kate Bean on
December 25, 1869 she was born on December 25, 1869 at Aberdeen, Mississippi
and she died on July 17, 1919 in Knoxville. They are buried at the Methodist
Cemetary in Rogersville.

Robert attended the McMinn Academy in Rogersville, and in 1862 he joined his
brothers Company, and served through the war with the 29th Tennessee
Infantry. After the surrender he clerked in a store in Knoxville and for
Beanner and Johnson at Mossy Creek. He farmed with his father at Walnut Hill
from 1868 to 1874. He traded horses and mules until 1876, when he ran for
Sheriff of Hawkins County. He was elected and served three terms 1876 to
1882, the first Democrat elected in the county after the war. His
predecessor in the office was his brother-in-law, Captain Christopher C.
Spears.

In 1885 he became deputy collector for the Federal Government for thirty
eight counties in East Tennessee for four years. In 1889 he was appointed
Warden of the Oliver Springs branch of the state penitentiary by Governor
Bob Taylor. In 1891 he was appointed Warden at Nashville for two years. He
transferred to the branch at Brushy Mountain in 1894 and served until 1909.
In 1910 Captain Blevins was elected Marshall of the State Supreme Court,
Eastern Section, at Knoxville, and served until his death. After his wife's
death he lived with her sister Mrs. Della Spears in Knoxville. He always
wore Confederate Gray and was a well known and loved figure.

2. Joan2 or Jane Bliven (Edward1). Born, 1 May 1692, in Westerly, RI (Westerly, RI Town Records, Book 2, Page 121. Joan, in Arnold.). She is called Jane in her father's will. NEHGR 14, 25(1860), (2-119).
She married William Clarke, 2 Sep 1709, in Westerly, RI, by, Peter Crandall, Justice. (Westerly, RI Town Records, Book 2, Page 119).
Children of Joan & William Clarke:
i. Judith b. July 9, 1710 d. Apr. 6 1791
(602) ii. Susannah. Born Feb. 8, 1711 in Westerly, RI
iii. Lucy3. Born Feb. 21, 1712/3, in Westerly, RI.
iv. William. Born Dec. 25, 1715.
3. Edward2 Bliven (Edward1). Born, 5 Aug 1694, in Westerly, RI (Westerly, RI Town Records, Book 2, Page 121). Died, circa 1775. On 2 Jun 1718 he was serving as clerk of the eldest Train Band of the town. 12 May 1719 he married Freelove Swaros (as nearly as the town record can be made out). There is reason to believe that the bride was Freelove Barker, daughter of Peter. Four facts point in this direction: (1) Edward Bliven was bondsman for Peter Barker's widow Susannah respecting the inventory of her husband's estate, 7 Dec 1725. (2) Edward Bliven was administrator of the estate of John Barker, 30 Mar 1740, who died about 27 Dec 1738. (3) The commissioners appointed by the Town Council of Westerly to divide the real estate of Peter Barker were formally warned by Edward Bliven not to run any line there, and accordingly desisted. The date was 11 Aug 1740. (4) The farm in Westerly on which the Bliven burying ground is situated formerly belonged to the Barker family, and John Barker is buried there. This identity of Freelove Bliven is supported by the examination of birth dates and by the fact that she had a son Peter who was born in 1727. It is probable that she was earlier married to one Swaros and that the Abigail Swaros who married, 25 Oct 1739, William Ross was her daughter by this earlier marriage. Edward and Freelove Bliven were Seventh Day Baptists. The latter's name appears on the record in 1718, 1740, and 1768. It is interesting to note that Peter Barker and both his wives were members of the same communion. Freelove died subsequent to 1768, and Edward in 1775. His will, made 29 Oct 1772 and proved 24 Apr 1775, mentions all his sons except Peter and all his daughters, but not his wife who probably died between 1768 and 1775. His grandson Edward received all his landed estate and was his executor.
He married Freelove Barker, 12 May 1719, in Westerly, RI, Joseph Stanton, Justice. (Westerly, RI Town Records, Book 2, Page 110). Born, 1698, in see Gen Dict, of RI. Died, circa 1768. She was the daughter of Peter and Freelove (Bliss) Barker (who were Seventh Day Baptists) and granddaughter of Benedict Arnold, first Governor of RI.

NOTE From ANNALS OF YARMOUTH & BARRINGTON, N.S. by Edmund Duval Poole. 1899 To the Hon'ble the Council and the Hon'ble the House of Representatives of the State of Massachusetts Bay.
Humbly Sheweth SARAH LEWIS, that WAITSTILL LEWIS, my husband,
with your petitioner, some years since, went from Rhode Island to
Halifax, where we kept a public House, and by keeping good order lived
in much reputation and got considerably beforehand. But at the
commencement of Hostilities between Great Britain and the Colonies, and
hearing of the fight at Concord, my husband was like a distracted man
to get away from Halifax, to help his country where he was born against
the British King, and as he could not get away directly from Halifax,
he went to Liverpool with his family, and got to Boston directly upon
the Troops leaving it, and left almost everything behind, and said he
would rather be a beggar in his own country with Liberty, than a rich man
at Halifax under the then present government, and after giving all the
help he could to the War, thinking to do better for his large family,
to get two and a half shares he went Steward on board the Sturdy Beggar
Privateer, almost three years ago; which Vessel is supposed was
foundered at Sea. This grievous affliction was most severely felt by
your petitioner, But a kind providence kept me along with the
assistance of my son, who went to Sea and was exceedingly kind and
tender to his Widdow Mother. He was in the West Indies last Summer,
and gave an acquaintance of his hard money to buy a barrel of Sugar and
a bag of Coffee to bring home for me, but the man sold it and spent the
money, And I was not able to get any more than three hundred paper
dollars for it, but this with hard labour, and a few dollars from one
and another I have rubb'd through the Winter- Where my Son
abovementioned is I know not but believe he sailed last out of Maryland,
where I hope soon to hear from him, and have some relief.
My next son of fourteen years old went with Capt. Dillaway thinking to
get something to assist me a few months ago, and was taken and is now in
Gaol with the Enemy, And I have four children now at home with me, The
oldest but nine years old who turns a wheel for a twine spinner for a
dollar a day, & I find him victuals- the next is a little tender girl of
six years old- the next four, and the next a little better than two and
was born six months after my husband went away. And I have a breeding
sore in my hand that adds greatly to my other troubles, as it prevents me
from labouring. And your petitioner is now in great distress- almost to
distraction- knowing not which way to turn, or go, and must without some
help sell my Bed from under me, to pay my rent and get some necessaries.
Your petitioner feels grieved to trouble your Honours with her case, but
great & pressing necessity urges me, and I would not apply did I know of
any other way in the world where to get relief in an honest way. I
therefore most earnestly pray your Honours would hear me, and as I can
bring suffcient evidence to the truth of my Representations, I hope for
that relief which your Honours from your Compassion & Benevolence to the
Widdow & fatherless who has none other to help, shall seem meet to bestow,
and your petitioner as in duty bound will ever pray,
Boston, April 27, 1780. Sarah Lewis

Lewis, Waitstill1st.

Waitstill Lewis 1st., whose ancestry still remains a genealogical puzzle, was probably an unrecorded son of Joseph Lewis (John, John) of Westerly R.I. who married Mary Lewis (David, John, John).
"Wait" Lewis married in Westerly R.I., 2nd Oct. 1754; Sarah Bliven born in Westerly, 26th May 1736, daughter of Edward Bliven by his wife Freelove Swaros, whom he married in Westerly 12th May 1719; grand-daughter of Edward Bliven and Isabel Maccoon (or McCoon) his wife the daughter of John Maccoon, who from his own account "came from Aberdeenshire, Scotland;" great grand-daughter of Edward Bliven, who with his brothers James and Joshua, came from England to America some time prior to 1650, probably landing at Salem.
The earliest record of the family in America, is the conveyence of property by James Bliven to his wife Bridget Oliver, at Salem, where the original parchment is displayed upon the walls at Essex Institute. Nathan Bliven, brother of his wife Sarah, married 16 Mar. 1756, Elizabeth Lewis, daughter of Joseph Lewis (John, John) by his wife Mary Lewis (David, John, John).
Waitstill Lewis served in Colonel Henry Babcock's Company, in 1758, in the "Old French and Indian War", commonly called by European historians as "The Seven Years War" (See Howard M. Chapin's "History of Old French and Indian War," page 95).
Waitstill Lewis came to Nova Scotia, with other settlers from Rhode Island, and probably settled at Halifax. In the lists of grantees of twelve townships his name is not seen.
The "Halifax Gazette" (Date missing) advertises, that Samuel Albrow informs "all gentlemen travellers, and others" that he has opened "a house of entertainment for man and horse, in Halifax, at the house lately occupied by Waitstill Lewis".
Waitstill Lewis enlisted in the Revolutionary War service as a private in Captain Caleb Brook's Company, Colonel Dike's Regiment, and served from December 14, 1776 to March 1, 1777. His residense is given in the Muster and payrolls as Cape Sable.
He re-enlisted in Captain Thomas Bumstead's Company, Lieut. Col. Jabez Hatch's Regiment, for on May 7th following, he was one of a detail drafted from that company for guard duty at and around Boston, under General Heath, upon which service he was engaged five weeks.
He lost his life in one of the privateer called "Sturdy Begger", thought to be the one of that name of which Heman Doane was the commander. (See Louisiana Volume XI, Book VIII, Chapter CCCXXV, page 117.)
The petition of Sarah Lewis, widow of Waitstill Lewis, to the Massachusetts General Court, dated August 4, 1780, states, that her husband went from Rhode Island with other settlers to Nova Scotia; that he kept a public house at Halifax; that he went from Halifax to Liverpool, and that he returned to Mass. in time to fight for Independence and thereby lost his life. Her petition was granted, and the sum of 200 pounds was ordered to be paid her, "for reasons set forth in her petition."

Who was the John Bliven that was captured and carried to Quebec? The following letter was found by John Dunn, while cleaning up some old papers at the Town Clerks office in Westerly. It may interest some people. Who can tell about the family of the writer? In what battle of the Revolution was John Bliven captured and carried to Quebec? Kingsbury is in the Eastern part of the state of New York, near the southern end of Lake George, in Washington County. The day of the month was obliterated by the wafer used to seal the letter. Kingsbury June xx 1794 Honored Parents I take this chance once more to write to you to inform you how we are. We are in a good state of health at present and hoping these few lines will find you all enjoying the same. We have a fine season as ever was and everything looks well. I have about 8 acres planted and it looks as well as I a(l)most ever see. It is about (k)nee high. We had a very frost and it hurt my flax a good deal and others and it hurt wheat a good deal. I dont know when I shall come down but you must come up this Fall and see me and the country. Daddy Cook is coming in September and you can come up with him. I talk of buying me a lot this Fall and if you can let me have a horse or a yoke of oxen it would help me much and fetch them up when you come up and I want you to write Back by James Sheffield the bearer of this letter that forerly lived in Voluntown; he will be down to his Uncles Thomas Sheffields and you will have a good chance. I want you to write how you and all my Brothers and Sisters are and where they are and how the neighbors is, etc. I find some of the old Rhode Island folks here their is Mr Benjamin Bently that formerly lived at Thomas Stantons and and Mr Littlefields that married Elder Saunders Daughter and Augustus Laundeon lives close by me and they are all well and if any Boddy to send letters up they can. You may tell Thomas Sisson's wife that Boardman has run away from his wife and left her and she can send him a letter if she wants to. I have heard from Uncle Johns Blivens family. I saw a man and talked with him about it. He told me he was in the battle with him and saw him when the Indians carried him off and another young fellow with him. They were taken and carried to Quebec and put on board the prison ship and were coming to York to be exchanged and Uncle John was taken sick and died against Marblehead and was thrown overboard and the young fellow got home again and brought the news. He left a widow and five children and his wife had seven children when he married her. he told me that he made fifty tons of potash a year. He lived close to him. I have nothing new to write. Rebecca remembers her love to you all and Uncle Daniels folks and I do the same. I had almost forgot to tell you that I had not got my things down from Hoosack yet xxx dont know as ever I shall. If you come up I wish you to come through there and find them. So I must subscribe myself your ever xxxx well wishing and dutiful son until death, Luther Bliven.

Saml Bliven, Esq Westerly State Rhodeisland per favor of Dr. Sheffield. Who was John Bliven? East Greenwich reader gives considerable information on this subject. In answer to a question raised in a recent article in the Sun, giving an old letter found in the town clerks office on Union Street, in which mention is made of the capture by Indians of John Bliven in one of the battles of the American Revolution. N.B. Vars of East Greenwich writes that "James Bliven, son of John (actually Edward)and Isabel, was born in Westerly Oct. 27, 1702, and James married Ann, daughter of Theodaty Rhodes in Westerly Jan. 22 1734, John Richmond, Justice of the Peace performing the ceremony. Their children were, first and second, James and John, twins. This John is the one taken prisoner. They were born March 22, 1735. Then third, Daniel, born March 12, 1737. Fourth Mary, born May 13, 1739. Fifth, Theodaty, named for his maternal grandfather, born May 3, 1741. Sixth, Samuel, born March 12, 1744. This Samuel was a prominent man in Westerly, having been a notary public, and then Clerk from 1791 to 1796. The letter referred to had been received by this Samuel while Town Clerk, from his son Luther, who lived near Lake George in the state of New York."

He married Rebecca Cook, 28 Nov 1792, in Preston, CT, by Rev Paul Park (Westerly, RI Town Records, Book 4, Page 72). Born, 10 Jan 1775. Died, 15 Feb 1844. Burial in Fort Ann, NY. The DAR #31842 in Vol 32, 1900 gives her death as 1840, but see Luther's will. There appears to be an error in the Barbour Collection card file in the Connecticut State Library, hartford, CT.

49. James4 Bliven (Samuel3, James2, Edward1). Born, 27 Jun 1787, in Westerly, RI (Westerly, RI Town Records, Book 3, Page 168, and Book 4, page 194). Died, circa 1860, in Illinois, or, perhaps, New York, or ??. I have documented only his birth record. There is, however, a short biographical essay on Sammuel G. Bliven in "Atlas Map of Adams County, Illinois"; Andreas, Lyter & Co., Davenport, Iowa, 1872. As the book also contains his "portrait" and a drawing of his farmhouse, I infer that Samuel G. either wrote or provided the data for the essay. It states that: S.G. Bliven is the grandson of Samuel Bliven, a soldier in the war of the revolution. S.G. Bliven is the grandson of Benjamin Burroughs, a soldier in the war of the revolution. S.G. Bliven was born in Rensselaer county, New York, July 26, 1809. S.G. Bliven's father, a farmer, was born in 1774. He married Mary Burroughs, daughter of Benjamin, of New York, about 1795. They had thirteen children, only four reaching maturity; S.G. is the only one living in 1872. [The "Portrait and Biographical Record of Adams County, Illinois", Chicago, Chapman Bros., 1892, page 265, states thar Samuel G. Bliven's father was James Bliven]. S.G. Bliven's mother, Mary Burroughs Bliven died at their residence in Wyoming County, New York, in June, 1831. S.G. Bliven's father survived until 1860. S.G. Bliven married Maria M. Wheeler, daughter of Henry Wheeler, around 1834. Maria M. Wheeler was born May 16, 1809, in Washington Couunty, New York. S.G. Bliven landed with his family in Adams county, Illinois in June, 1835.

He married Mary Burroughs, daughter of Benjamin Burroughs and Nellie Lyons, circa 1808. Born, circa 1785.

So we have Benjamin Burroughs, who bought the North half of lot #11 in 1816, sell the lower section to his son Samuel for $400 on 26 Aug 1819. And recording them both in 1828. He sold to Samuel Burroughs what must have been his house lot, 80 rods, for $10, on 2 Apr 1828. Benjamin Burroughs died 14 Aug 1831. He was born in May 1752. Mary Burrough Bliven died 10 Jun 1830. She was born in 1785. Jefferson Burroughs was born around 1801. He died 11 May 1856. Samuel Burroughs was born about May 1799. He died 4 Aug 1870. Russel Wheeler and his wife Clarissa sold the middle 60 acres to Samuel Burroughs for $100 on 21 Nov 1831. Samuel and Mabel Maria Wheeler Bliven sold the entire 182 acres to Samuel Burroughs on 21 Jan 1833. And again, on 30 Aug 1848, Samuel Bliven and his wife Mabel Maria (Wheeler) Bliven, Benjamin Burroughs Bliven and his wife Avis C. Bliven, Samuel Bliven as guardian of Helen I. Wheeler and Henry Wheeler, minor heirs of Simon C. Wheeler and Nancy Wheeler his wife formerly Nancy Bliven, sold the entire 182 acres to Samuel and Jefferson Burroughs. From the above it is possible to infer that: Samuel G. Bliven, Benjamin Burroughs Bliven, and Nancy Bliven Wheeler, and Clarissa Wheeler were children of James and Mary (Burroughs) Bliven, and that they had inherited land from either Mary Bliven or Benjamin Burroughs, and were signing it over to Samuel Burroughs. And, it is possible that the four Blivens married four Wheelers. Benjamin Burroughs Bliven's wife was Avis C.; on her tombstone is that she was the daughter of H. Wheeler and wife of Ben B. Bliven.
Children:
133 i. Samuel Green5.
134 ii. Benjamin Burroughs.
135 iii. Nancy S.
iv. Clarissa. She married Russell Wheeler, son of Henry Wheeler and Rachel A. Russell C. Wheeler and Clarissa his wife of the town of Pike, Allegany Co., NY, sold, for $100, 60 acres to Samuel Burroughs on 21 Nov 1831. I guess that she had received the land in the will of either Benjamin Burroughs or Mary Bliven. Clarissa Wheeler, with no husband, is 43 years old and born in NY in the 1850 census, Pike County, NY.

AFFIDAVIT WRITTEN BY JOSEPHUS BLIVEN FOR MARTHA TO RECIEVE JOHN M. BLIVEN's
CIVIL WAR PENSION. Written when Josephus when he was 50 years old -
Sept.25, 1896. Flag Springs, Missouri (County of Anderson)

I am a son of John M. Bliven by his first wife whose name was Permelia
who died when I was a child not over 5 or 6 years of age. My father
remarried a woman by the name of Lucinda and soon after obtained a
divorce from her. He then remarried a woman by the name of Jane Seward (It looks like it’s spelled, “Janice Leonard”) who is now dead so also is said Lucinda.
Then he remarried Martha who still remains his widow and is the above
claimant who has not remarried since the death of said John M. Bliven.
I am satisfied that my father had not been married prior to his
marriage to my mother, (Permelia), if he had I think I would have
heard of it. I know my father never left any children except by his
first wife.

------------------------
Maybe this is the Capt. George Bliven:
There was a Capt. George Bliven who was a whaling captain in the north Pacific near Mystic, Conn. He did the actual whaling; staying out on the water and other "barks" would ferry out supplies and transfer the supplies for the oil. Old George lost one bark in the ice. Apparantly back in those days (the 1860's) if the ocean froze they'd lose the boat, cause the barks were wooden. There was a freeze and George and crew just walked away and the ice crushed the bark. The log makes note about how many 'masts' they would spot in a day and if there were no whales, they would go after walrus'.
-------------
In the Mystic Seaport Library (part of the museum) are two ships logs from a George Bliven. George was a whaling bark captain who hunted in the north Pacific ocean. His period was the 1860's however. Also, in the part of the Mystic museum there is a display of local boat builders and a "cat boat" builder from that area was one John Bliven. John's name is recorded on a plack on the wall of the display room.
Daniel in the early 1700's, there was a packet boat captain, who ran passengers between Westerly, RI and Oyster Bay, NY (Long Island).

AFFIDAVIT WRITTEN BY JOSEPHUS FOR MARTHA TO RECIEVE JOHN M. BLIVEN's
CIVIL WAR PENSION. Written when Josephus when he was 50 years old -
Sept.25, 1896. Flag Springs, Missouri (County of Anderson)

I am a son of John M. Bliven by his first wife whose name was (P)ermelia
who died when I was a child not over 5 or 6 years of age. My father
remarried a woman by the name of Lucinda and soon after obtained a
divorce from her. He then again married a woman by the name of Janice (Jane)
Seward who is now dead so also is said Lucinda.
Then he remarried Martha who still remains his widow and is the above
claimant who has not remarried since the death of said John M. Bliven.
I am satisfied that my father had not been married prior to his
marriage to my mother, (Permelia), if he had I think I would have
heard of it. I know my father never left any children except by his
first wife.

================
This is the WWB whose document C. Melvin Bliven used to compile most of his information?
I remember my Grandfather, Wesley Joseph Bliven saying that there was a lawyer that sent out letters to a bunch of Bliven’s asking for family tree information. He claimed that their was a BIG inheritance in Wales that could be claimed if ALL of the Bliven family tree could be completed. (What a great scam, leave it to a lawyer to come up with a way to get a bigger response!) Bill Bliven -531
----------------------------
Below is a letter from WWB (William Warren Bliven) that I got from John Bliven Morin, Jr. -652:. The letter dated 1889 and was sent to Mary E. Bliven after she had returned his inquiry:

"Dear Madam: Your received, and for which I am very much obliged. My object is
to try to write a geneology of the Bliven family. I have a great deal on the
subject. In olden times there seems to have been three brothers came to
America, viz: John, James, and Edward. Of John and James we know very little
about. John spelt the name Blethin and also Blevin. There is a large family
now in existance by the name of Blethin. James had a son, James, and used to
live with his brother, first at Oyster Bay, Long Island, and thence to Westerly, R.I.
With James, his son, this family is supposed to have died out. Edward is our
great parent. Of him the Blivens of today are descended. There is a Major John
Bliven, who spells the name Blevin, who was captured and died in captivity at
the battle of Oriskany, Aug. 6, 1777. I cannot find who were his children. He

---------------------
William Burton Bliven lived in various places throughout his life, i.e.; Flag Springs, MO, Grand Forks, ND. "Bert" built a log house and saw mill in Pitt, Minnesota in 1904, (I have a picture of the house, taken by his son, Roy, in Sept. 1959). I have a picture os a "school souvenir" for District No. 100, Wabanica Township, Beltrami County, Minn. (1908-9). It shows that W.B. Bliven was the school board Director.
While living in Pitt, they had to leave their house and borad a train when a fire swept through the area. The Baudette-Spooner fire was the worst of more than 900 that occurred in 29 counties that year. The Baudette and Spooner fire of 7 Oct 1910 destroyed Pitt, Graceton, Cedar Spur, and Williams. 220-300,000 acres burned. 29 deaths. 1910 was one of the driest years on record. 1910 death total was 42.
Wes Bliven, "Bert's" son buried his violin in the yard as the fire approached. He didn't have time to dig a deep hole, so he had put a bucket over the neck. After the fire, when he returned he found the violin and it was unharmed except for a burn mark on the neck. (The violin was stolen in Bellingham, years later).
William Burton Bliven ("Bert") owned a big steam-driven thrashing machine and he thrashed wheat in North Dakota & Montana. He eventually moved to Saskatchewan in 1913 where he homesteaded and farmed until a drought caused him to move to the Bellingham area in 1928 where his son Wes was living since 1926. Bert farmed for a short time in Ferndale, Washington until he retired. While living in Saskatchewan he was a "Reeve" in the town of Little Woody. Bert played the fiddle and loved to dance. He invented a "chaf-blower" fan to separate the wheat from the chaf. He mounted it on his thrashing machine and it worked great. He tried to patent it, but was told that it couldn't be patented because it used the "wind" and that the "wind" couldn't be patented. Later, and now, all the thrashing machines have a fan, "chaf-blower" mounted on them.

This story was told to Cecile Newell Farrar by Maud Edna Bliven-Asbury-Foster-Look

Maud Edna Bliven was born in Donaldson, Minnesota on July 24, 1888 to William "Burt" Bliven and Ida Ann Riegle. At an early age her parents divorced, and Edna as she preferred being called, went to live with her grandparents. Her brother Roy was several years younger (born 1891. He was raised by his father and his second wife. Burt always said they were two of a kind and deserved each other, and if the family
would of stayed out of it they would never have separated. When Edna was 9 years old she was living in Missouri on a farm. One day after a heavy rain she was walking along a very muddy road stepping over and around puddles on her way home from school when three young men came along, two on horseback and one in a wagon. They asked Edna directions as they were not sure of the way. She told them how to get there. The young man on the wagon was about 22 years old. He asked Edna if she wanted a ride since they had to go by her home, she said she would, so they helped her onto to the wagon. They let her off at her home and went on there way. The young man's friends were teasing him about his new, little girlfriend. He jokingly told them it was the girl he was going to marry, that when she was old enough he was going to look her up. They told him that may be hard to do since he did not even know her name.
The years went by and Edna's grandparents moved to South Dakota. When she was 17 she fell in love with a cowboy named Alfred Asbury. They were engaged. She had been brought up as a strict Babtist and she did not approve of Alfred's friends. They were always drinking, gambling, and carousing. She told him she wanted him to get rid of them or she would not marry him. He thought about it awhile and then he told her he had those friends long before he had ever met her and he was not about to give them up. So Edna broke the engagement. Soon after, Alfred's brother , Archie, started coming to see Edna. He had kept his distance because of his brother, but he was really attracted to her. She liked him because he did not drink, smoke, or gamble. Every time Edna saw Archie she had the feeling she had seen him somewhere before, or someone like him. He asked her to marry him and she accepted. One day she asked him if he had ever been in love or engaged before. He told her he had not, but he had met a little girl in Missouri one time he wanted to see again, but never seemed to get around to it. Edna asked him a few more questions about when and where, then she told him that he did not have to go to Missouri to look for that girl because she was the one he had met on that long ago day.
They were married soon after that. There was Quite a bit of talk. Some thought she had married Archie on the rebound, that she did it to spite Alfred. They said that she had never acted like she loved Archie and never treated him very well. ( Years later they learned that Alfred Asbury was buried in a paupers grave in Grass Range, Montana and that he had never married ). If Edna had any regrets she didn't have much time to dwell on them. They were married 26 years and she gave birth to 13 children, 8 boys, 3 girls, and 2 stillborn.
George " Archie" Asbury ( Archie was the name he went by ) was born in Colorado 14 April 1875. He was a quiet, gentle, good, loving father. All of the kids loved him very much. He left a unhappy home in his early teens and had quite a few different jobs including: a Cowhand, Sheep Shearer, and a Truck farmer. After he and Edna married he worked mostly as a Sheep Shearer. That meant following the herds so they moved around alot. The children were born in South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, and Washington. They were living in Husum, Washington in 1927. He and his son-in-law Paul Newell were splitting cedar post fences.
Archie died in Underwood, Washington in 1930 at the age of 55, leaving Edna with 7 children at home. Ava went to live with Alma and Paul. Irwin hit the road just "bumming" around. Edna moved to Yakima and married a man named Jack Foster, a year or so later . After they had spent all the money that Archie had left her, he took off and was never seen or heard of again. He might have had good intentions, but Edna's five young sons didn't like him and proceeded to make life miserable for him.
Edna moved to Hood River, Oregon then and worked as a housekeeper. She left Clarence and Virgil in Yakima with their older married brothers, Vere and Ralph. Lawrence was sent to Alma and Paul's as soon as Ava married. She kept Ronald and Lyle with her. After working as a housekeeper for several years, she married Les Look. They lived happily until his death July 2, 1958. She never married again.Of her 11 children, Lyle was the only one to graduate from High School. Edna really changed down over the years. She learned to play cards and really enjoyed Pinochle. She and Les went to the movies once or twice a week. She still went to church, but not very often.

9. Alma Edna10 Asbury (Edna Maud9 Bliven, William Burton8, Josephus7, John
Maxson6, Pardon Clarke5, William4, Edward3, Edward2, Edward1) was born August
10, 1905 in Belle Fourche, Butte Co., South Dakota, and died March 04, 1969 in White
Salmon, Washington. She married Paul Ernest Newell May 07, 1924 in Kennewick,
Benton Co., Washington, son of Charles Newell and Ida Ducker.

Notes for Alma Edna Asbury:
Story by Cecile Newell Farrar:
Alma was the first born and remembered her childhood living on the prairie. She
enjoyed watching the Prairie dogs and their antics. The most frightening thing was
grass fires, they traveled so fast that they never knew which way they would go. They
had to keep a fire trail dug around the house. All they could do was wait with the pails
of water and pray the fires would go around them, and the wind would not blow the fire
beyond the trail into the grass around the house.
The winters were bitter cold, snow drifts would bury one side of the house one day,
then the wind would change and bury the other side. That was on the prairie. The
snow usually never got very deep, but the wind would keep it blowing around.
Alma's mother Edna was a very strict mother. They always went to church whenever
they lived near enough to one. They could not dance, Edna felt that was sinful and so
were movies. They were not allowed to play most games, especially cards, because
they were a form of gambling. Sunday was " The Lord's Day," so after church they
had to sit quietly, no playing was allowed. Drinking and smoking were the worst sins
of all.
Being the oldest child, Alma's days were really busy. When she got home from
school there were dishes to wash, a house to clean, babies to change, diapers to
wash, and dinner to fix. When she graduated from the eighth grade she wanted to go
to High School, but Edna said "NO", she needed her at home, " besides anymore
education for a girl was unnecessary."
When Alma was 18 she fell in love with Paul Newell. They were married May 7, 1924.
