Tarlton Blevins and John Blevins were amongst the first settlers in Cahokia Township. These early settlers came to Cahokia, which at that time was practically all timberland and settled in that timber where they commenced at once to make a clearing and build their homes. Another reason for settling near the timber was that the ground in the timber was not as hard as that of the prairie and it was much easier for the pioneer to cultivate the land with their crude implements.
