Blevins in Carter County

Classification: Query
Surnames: Blevins
There are no Blevins appearing on 1820 Carter Census, 14 Blevins households on 1830 Census, and 4 on 1840 Census. Does anyone have any ideas why there was such an increase from 1820 to 1830? Apparently 100 Blevins surged into Carter County after 1820. I've seen some speculation about them being "squatters" and they may have moved to avoid past taxes? Any ideas?
