Per Randi Richardson research:

James and Robert Blaine were brothers. The eldest, James, entered the army in Virginia and served the entire seven years without a wound. His brother, Robert, served four years and was equally fortunate in escaping a wound. After the war, Robert married Sarah Miller, and the town of Lebanon, Kentucky, was built on their farm. In 1818 he moved to Owen County and shortly after to Bean Blossom Township, Monroe County, where he spent the remainder of this life. He was the father of seven children, and his descendants are among the most worthy citizens. They are mostly descended from his daughter, Isabel, who married Zachariah Chambers. Isabel's children are: Mrs. Sam. B. Harris, Mrs. Mary James, deceased, James, John, Robert and Sam Chambers. Robert Blaine was remarkable for his neat and methodical method of farming; even his rail fences being symbolical. He died in 1844. James Blaine was a bachelor and lived with his brother, Rob. He died 1839.
