Funeral services were conducted at St. Jo, Montague County, for Mrs. SUE O. BLEVINS, 88, widow of a Confederate veteran, who was one of the first men to begin fencing the then untamed prairies of Texas and who died at the home of her daughter Mrs. R. B. POWELL, 1141 North Madison. Mrs. Blevins was born in Meggs County, Tennessee in 1844. In 1867 she married D. C. BLEVINS, who served as a captain in the Confederate Army.

Following the death of her husband in 1922, Mrs. Blevins came to Dallas to make her home with her daughters. Surviving are three sons, BASS BLEVINS of St. Jo, R. W. BLEVINS of Midland, JOHN D. BLEVINS of Oklahoma City; three daughters, Mrs. W. J. WALKER of St. Jo, Mrs. POWELL and Mrs. J. O. NORVILL of Dallas; two brothers, T. J. DAVIS of Decatur, Tennessee and I. J.
