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

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

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

See the photo of this application: It appears to be dated and signed by Juleyan on 7 Sep 1894. She made the application at 49 years of age as the daughter of "Lucretia Campbell" whom she "believes was an Indian belonging to said tribe."

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

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

Erected by G.J. Blevins August 1907.
