    Adam and Lucretia’s daughter Juleyan Campbell Blevins, marriedReverend Armstead Elza Blevins, Jr. on 28 Oct 1868 in Walker County,AL. I have a copy of Juleyan’s application for admission into theCherokee Nation for herself and six of her seven sons. (The oldest, myGG-Grandfather General Jackson Blevins, was 24 at the time and notliving at home). Here is a copy of the application (it is hard toread):

    The application was never approved, and we have hit a dead-end whereLucretia’s family is concerned. We suspect that her mother wasCherokee and that Lucretia was actually 1/2 Cherokee. But it is alsopossible that her father John Green, is the same John Green who’ssister Nancy Anne’s descendant Sheri Horton, wrote you that she hadproven the Cherokee lineage of John and Nancy Anne’s parents, Meshackand Lucretia Franklin Green.

    Juleyan Campbell Blevins
    Birth Nov 12, 1844, USA
    Death Jan 14, 1921, USA

    Juleyan was the daughter of Adam and Lucresa Green Campbell. She isreported to have had red hair like her father Adam.

    She married Reverend Armstead E. Blevins on Oct 28, 1868 at her familyhome.

    Her mother Lucretia Green Campbell is believed to have been ofCherokee blood. This is further evidenced by the fact that Juleyanmade an application in 1894 for Citizenship in the Cherokee Nation forherself and her sons: Benjamin F., Bird and John Robert (twins),Joseph, Dillard and Armstead A. We don't know why she didn't list herson General Jackson, or her daughters Peggy, Mary and Minolevia"Minnie."

    See the photo of this application: It appears to be dated and signedby Juleyan on 7 Sep 1894. She made the application at 49 years of ageas the daughter of "Lucretia Campbell" whom she "believes was anIndian belonging to said tribe."

    We do not believe that the application was ever approved and at thistime, have no information as to why.

    She is buried with her husband in the Blevins family cemetery, locatedon property formerly belonging to her son General Jackson Blevins andlater to C.P. White, MD near a house of rock built by G.J. Blevinsnear McKinley's Chapel in Cullman County, AL near Wilburn and Bremen.The rock house had a building stone (but it has disappeared) thatshowed:
