He was pre-deceased by his wife (on January 20, 1898), and by one son and three of his daughters, as well as by two of his grandchildren. His three remaining sons are also deceased, the youngest having passed away in July 1955 (South Early Bevins). All, except one daughter (Leslie May Bevins Hurt) and her child (Edgar B. Hurt), are buried in or near the family burying ground at the old home place, which for many years has been known as the 'Mont Bevins Cemetery'. This cemetery is also the last resting place of many other earlier members of the Bevins and Lesley families, as well as many of their friends and neighbors."
