Andrew J. Blevins

A prominent pioneer family of 1850 is represented by Andrew J.Blevins, one of the venerable and highly honored agriculturists ofLinn county. Mr. Blevins is one of the very successful farmers andagriculturists of his neighborhood, and his farm of two hundred andten acres, a part of the old donation claim settled by his father, hasevery evidence of being managed by a painstaking and progressivetiller of the soil, and one who has thoroughly appreciated thepossibilities of the country in which his lot has been cast. Aconsiderable revenue is derived from the raising of Clydesdale andPercheron horses, Shorthorn cattle and Cotswold sheep. Thesehigh-grade animals have for years been an interesting study to Mr.Blevins, who is thoroughly conversant with their good points, andpossesses the best facilities for rearing and caring for them.

The early life of Mr. Blevins was passed in Clay county, Ky., wherehis father, Isaac, was known as a large landowner and blacksmith.Isaac Blevins was born in Tennessee, January 12, 1799, and therelearned the trade to which he devoted many years of his life,remaining in his native state until his sixteenth year. He then wentto Kentucky, and there married, in 1833, Eliza Maupin, who was born inthe Bourbon state January 18, 1809. Seven years after his marriage, in1840, Mr. Blevins took his wife and children overland to Missouri, andfor ten years engaged in farming with fair success. In 1850 he soldhis farm and purchased the required outfit for joining an emigranttrain across the plains, his son, Andrew J., being at that timefifteen years of age, and therefore of practical assistance in drivingthe oxen and caring for the loose stock. A great deal of this stockpassed into the possession of the Indians, notwithstanding the careexercised in keeping it together. Otherwise the travelers had fewadventures out of the ordinary, and reached Linn county, Ore., wearyenough to appreciate almost any permanent abiding place. Mr. Blevinstook up a section of land eight miles southwest of Albany, a portionof which is now occupied by his son, Andrew J., and which is locatedon the old Albany and Harrisburg road. In the lonely forests, withneighbors many miles remote, and with few financial or other resourcesat his disposal, he laboriously hewed out timber for a little logcabin, his family in the meantime continuing to live in the prairieschooner which had housed them so many nights on the plains. It may beimagined with what speed the land was prepared for crops, and howimpatiently the wife and children waited for the maturing of the grainand other commodities which should furnish them the necessary food forsubsistence. The father was successful, soil and climate conspiringfor the comfort and even enjoyment of himself and family. He was agenial and whole-souled man, and as the district became settled, andthe homes separated by fewer miles, he made many friends among hisneighbors, all of whom admired his strength of character anduprightness. He took an active part in political affairs in thecounty, and was equally active in the church, which he attendedregularly, and taught his children to do the same. He lived to beeighty-five years old. One of the cherished memories of his youngerdays was that he met Lewis and Clark, now famous as discoverers ofOregon. Mr. Blevins was survived by his wife until her ninety-firstyear. In his young days in Tennessee Mr. Blevins offered his servicesto General Jackson in the war of 1812, but owing to his size and agethey were not accepted. Besides Andrew J., who is the second of thefive children, there was Pendleton, now of Crook county; Alfred,living in this vicinity; John, a resident of Whatcom, Wash.; and IsaacC., deceased.

As a young man Andrew J. Blevins, who was born in Clay county, Ky.,December 17, 1835, followed mining in California, British Columbia andIdaho, for several years. His educational opportunities werecomparatively limited, owing to the unsettled condition of thecountry. In 1859 he was united in marriage with Alvilda Miller, anative of Iowa, with whom he went to housekeeping in Linn county, andin 1863 settled on his present farm, a part of his father's donationclaim, and has since uninterruptedly devoted himself to itscultivation. His wife, who lived to be only twenty-eight years old,left him three children, of whom Edward A. lives near his father; Maryis the wife of Asa Lewelling, of this county; and George S. is on theold homestead. Like his father, Mr. Blevins has taken an activeinterest in politics ever since arriving at years of discretion, andhe has been a member of the Grange for many years. Like his sire,also, he has made many friends as he pursued the even tenor of auseful life, and no name in the community carries with it more ofrespect and good will on the part of his fellow agriculturists.
