Birth: 1840

Death: 1871

Abigail "Abby" (Blevins) King was born in Wayne Co., KY about 1840. She was the daughter of Talton Blevins (1810-aft 1880) and Mary Ann "Polly" Woods (1811-aft 1880).

Her father, Talton, was born in Wayne Co., KY. He was the son of Jonathon Blevins (1779-1863) and Catherine Troxell (1783-1814).

Her mother, Mary Ann, was born in South Carolina. She was the daughter of Belfield Woods (1753-1836) and Nancy Kidwell (1792-1870).

Abby was the first wife of Thomas Braxton "Brack" King (1839-1918), son of Thomas Murray King (1790-1880) and Mary Rebecca Cox (1800-1881). Thomas was the patriarch of the King family having moved from Campbell Co., Tennessee to the Marsh Creek area about 1829.

Brack and Abbey wee married for about 13 years and had six known children. She died about 1871 around the age of 31.

It is thought that Abby was buried in what is now called the Duncan Cemetery in McCreary Co., KY. According to McCreary Co. historian Robert Ernest Stephens (1990), this old cemetery has 77 readable headstones and 86 unmarked or unreadable markers.

There is a field stone in the cemetery with the faint markings of "A. B. K." (Abigail Blevins King ?) on it. This may well be her grave marker.

After Abbey's death her husband, Brack, married her Abbey's sister, Nancy Blevins (1852-1914). Brack and Nancy were married over 30 years and had nine known children.

Nancy died in 1914 at the age of 70, Brack in 1918 about the age of 79. Both are thought to be buried in the Duncan Cemetery with unidentifiable markers.
