Martha "Dutch" King married my gg grandfather Robert "Uncle Bob" Blevins. Uncle Bob as I knew him lived with my parents and me at Weeksbury, Ky until his death. Uncle Bob and Martha "Dutch" King were maried on March 30, 1878 and had 6 children of which my grandfather Harrison was the youngest. I remember uncle Bob very well because it was my dog he fell over and broke his hip. The broken hip was his demise I'm sorry to say.

I have been looking for information on his wife Martha "Dutch" King Blevins for some time now. Her grandsons Virgil who was my father and just passed away on 11/14/01, Eugene Blevins of South Charleston, Oh and Ralph Blevins, now in a nursing home in Springfield, Oh have all told me of their lives with Dutch. Dutch and Uncle Bob lived with their mother and father and all have stated she was a very dark skin woman of American Indian descent (choctow they beleive), tall and thin. All further state she had a great sense of humor and would work from daylight to dawn nonstop. Both dad and my uncles hated to see her and Uncle Bob come around because they too would have to work like dogs all day long. Of course all three said they were just a little lazy.

All of know of her is she is buried in Paintsville, Ky and until I can find time to get to that area I will remain in the dark on her side of the family. I would appreciate it if you could shed light on her past. If you can shed light you must be some kin of mine and I would love to talk with you.

Hi, If the Martha King age 10 is the one in your line, then sorry, we have no connection. I am trying to locate Martha King b. 1857ca in AR who married 10 Jan 1878 to James McDonald in Sevier Co., AR I think Martha was an orphan but can't fin her before that marriage. She married again in 1881 and moved to Swink, Choctaw Co., OK and is buried here.
If you can document this Martha King, plaese let me know and I will cross her off my search list.

Hi .
I have a model of the Green Cove train depot that
Dutch Blevins made in 1994. She was my grandmothers Dorothy Clark school teacher. I visited
Dutch at her home to inquire about my grandmother and her life growing up in Dog Town. That is what she called the holler in between the creek and the train tracks. Would you like a picture of this model?

I just came across this query from 2002 about Martha Dutch King. Her son Garfield "Dick" was my grandfather. I too have been trying to find any info on her. If in the last 10 years you have come across any information I would love hearing from you or even if not I would love hearing from you. My mother used to tell me a story about her and her Uncle Harrison. I never met him but I did once meet Uncle Dock and Aunt Amy.
