MY QUESTION: Benjamin Dever was my direct ancestor. I have found no cousins of his that would be Grace Nevin. Can someone please identify how this family is related? I thought perhaps Elvin Dunbar was the connection, but can find nothing to confirm this suspicion. How are the Nevin and Dever family connected? Here is what I have identified about the Nevin family thus far: Apr 1833 William Nevins is born in Ohio Dec 1833 Elizabeth Daugherty (who will eventually marry William Nevins) is born, either in Ohio or Virginia http://boards.ancestry.com/surnames.nevin/81.2/mb.ashx= 1860 James Busic is born to Arthur Busic and (according to the 1925 Linn Co Census) Elizabeth Way. James is identified as Elizabeth Nevins son in at least one census. Around 1860, based on children's births (who is the mother of Inez?) William Nevins and Elizabeth Daugherty married 1826-1862 Inez Nevin is born July 1872 Maude Evelyn Nevin is born April 1874 Grace Nevin is born 1876 William Alexander Nevin is born 22 Jul 1870 Census Wm. Nevins (aged 38), Libby (35)(William's wife), Inez (9), James (9) (This is probably the Busic boy, although here his surname is Nevins) 1885 Census CENTER POINT, IOWA Elizabeth Navin 51 James E Busic 24 Maud E Nevin 12 Gracie M Nevin 10 William A Nevin 8 Louisa J Kirby 56 (relationship to the Nevin family unknown) 1894 Maude marries Elvin Dunbar (is this a variation of DaVar or Dever?) Apr 1896 Elizabeth dies 1900 Census in School District 21, Custer, South Dakota William is living alone with his 2 children, Gracie and William. 26 Aug 1919 in Custer, Custer, South Dakota William Nevin (the father) dies 1920 Census Jefferson, Buchanan, IOWA Record for Ben Dever. In his house were his cousin Grace Nevin, his wife Nellie and two children Lyle (Lisle) and Geraldine. Ben (31), Nellie (26), Lisle/Lyle (5), Geraldine (2) and Grace, the 44 year old cousin, lived in household /family 167/170.

Hello, I'm new to the list and am trying to find the connection of the DeVere family to the Carpenter and Palmer families of New York. My grandfather was Arthur DeVere Carpenter (1866-1958) and his parents were Charles Carpenter and Harriet Palmer, both born in New York as were both of their parents according to the federal census. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Joyce Carpenter Sharpley firstname.lastname@example.org

Looking for more information on John Dever. The information I have is almost all family oral history through my grandmother. John Dever was born about 1828. He was a cobbler and boot maker in Missouri. Mary Lovica ?Connelly? was born the 27th of March, 1845 (might be 1847) in Olena, Ohio, the daughter of Robert and Martha ?Connelly?. When a young woman, Mary traveled to Illinois or Missouri and married John Dever. Mary Hofer their grandchild said, "John Dever was twenty years older than my grandmother. She came to Missouri to marry him when her father wrote and told her he had found a good husband for her. Her father would give her a dowry if she came to Missouri and married him. She had a very good life with him." John and Mary had two children, a son, Elmer J. Dever, about 1867 and a daughter, Grace Ella Dever, born the 14th of July, 1870 (might be 1872) in Missouri. In about 1882 at the age of 54, John died of stomach cancer. The doctors said it was from holding the boot against his stomach. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This may be my John Dever family. The ages fit. John's occupation is right and Mary's place of birth goes with what has been told. Mary Lenora (Smith) Hofer said there were only two children born to John and Mary Dever, Elmer and Grace. I have been unable to find this family under any other name close to Dever in the 1880 Census index. There is no Elmer that fits, no other Grace that fits in all of the Missouri index. I have looked under E., G., M., L., Grace, Elmer, Deaver, Dever, Devere, Devor, Daver, Diver, Dover, Beaver, Weaver, Langdon. The 1920 and 1930 Seattle, King, Washington Censuses list Elmer Dever's place of birth as Illinois which also fits this family if Elena is really Elmer. 1880 Census: http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/frameset_search.asp?PAGE=census/search_census.asp Source Information: Census Place Pleasant Hill, Cass, Missouri Family History Library Film 1254679 NA Film Number T9-0679 Page Number 144C Name Relation Marital Status Gender Race Age Birthplace Occupation Father's Birthplace Mother's Birthplace John DEORR Self M Male W 52 ENG Boot And Shoe Maker ENG ENG Mary DEORR Wife M Female W 33 OH Kpng Hse NY OH Elena DEORR Dau S Female W 13 IL At Home ENG OH (Is this really Elmer Dever, a son?)

Hello my fellow researchers, I have updated my web site containing my family history. About 95% of the people are related in someway to my wife or myself (The others are parents of wives or husbands and such). While it contains the names of living people, no information or pictures are shown. I have only been doing this for a few years. I hope that you will enjoy looking at the information. I am sending this to all the sites I subscribe to, hoping for feed back and new and undated information. If you have pictures of some of these people I would love to have a copy to post.

WOW!!! The response is over whelming and it is great! To answer the most asked question; I am the old man with the Labrador (her name is Cheyenne, my granddaughter) and my son who has never married (Cheyenne belongs to him). I am trying to respond to the e-mails and posting to the guestbook. I will take some time. I am getting information by the ton. It will take awhile to glean it. I will e-mail responders when I update it. Thanks, to all who responded and the accolades for the web site. I must say that the software I use is Legacy (It was Free for the basic) for my database and it created the web site for me in 10 minutes. I did do some minor changes. It is the best genealogical software package I have ever used and I have used many. It took over 4 hours to upload it on a high-speed connection. (About 100 Meg.) This was very easy to do.

(Please remember that many of the RootsWeb Message Boards are gatewayed to mailing lists. This means that when something is posted to a board, it is also posted to the mailing list. When replying to a gatewayed message it is best to reply on the board where the original message was written, just in case the author is not currently on the mailing list where you found the message. TRD-H) GETTING THE MOST OUT OF MESSAGE BOARDS. http://boards.rootsweb.com/ You can search all message boards, search a category, or search only one board by selecting the appropriate button depending upon your location within the board hierarchy. To perform a simple search type in a surname (last name), a keyword, or a phrase, and click GO! In all searches, keywords or phrases will be searched for the closest to the least exact match in that order. For a more specific search click on the ADVANCED SEARCH link. A search of all boards is the default. Complete any or all of the items on the ADVANCED SEARCH form: --FIND MESSAGES CONTAINING: (list a keyword or phrase) --WITH SUBJECT CONTAINING: (searches only message subjects) --BY AUTHOR: (the posters' names will be searched) --POSTED IN THE LAST ____: (select a time period from drop-down menu) --WITH SURNAME: (searches only the Surname Box entries) also offers a check box to use a Soundex search. (For information about Soundex, a special index, see: http://rwguide.rootsweb.com/lesson9.htm). --WITH MESSAGE TYPE: (Select from the drop-down menu: All, Query, Bible, Biography, Birth, Cemetery, Census, Death, Deed, Immigration, Lookup, Marriage, Military, Obituary, Pension, or Will). Searches support trailing wildcards represented by an asterisk (*) following a minimum of the first three letters of the keyword or surname. A trailing wildcard means you cannot begin a search request surname/keyword with an asterisk -- you must start with at least three letters prior to the asterisk. For example: a search for Joh* will find John, Johns, or Johnson. Search operators you may use are the plus (+) sign which may be placed in front of any word to indicate that this word MUST appear in a message for it to be considered a match, and the minus sign (-) which may be placed in front of any term you wish to exclude from a search. A search for '+jones john -paul' will return only those hits that contain the word 'jones' -- provided the word 'paul' does not also appear in the message. The word "john" may or may not appear in the message. Messages that include both 'john' and 'jones' would rank higher in degree of match (relevancy) than those that only include 'jones'. If you search and get no matches, enter less information or search only by a surname or a keyword. Regardless of the case (upper or lower) found in the actual posts on the message boards, typing all lowercase letters in the search box will make your search case insensitive, thereby yielding the maximum number of matches. Too many matches? Enter additional data on the ADVANCED SEARCH page to narrow down your results. If the surname for which you are looking is also a common word (such as HILL) use the ADVANCED SEARCH link and search on the surname by typing it into the SURNAME BOX. This enables you to search only message board posts in which this "word" is used as a surname. Searching only on the surname field eliminates authors' names from coming up in your search results. You also can narrow search results by selecting a specific data type or messages with attachments. By searching only for posts with attachments, for example, you can easily locate those messages that include pictures, scanned images, and GEDCOMs. Previously published in RootsWeb Review: Vol. 5, No. 26, 26 June 2002. ==== BOARDS-ADMINS Mailing List ================================= To join Ancestry.com and access our 1.2 billion online genealogy records, go to: http://www.ancestry.com/rd/redir.asp?targetid=571&sourceid=1237 Forwarded by Terri Rene DaVar-Howard & Brian Howard We are currently registered to administer the following boards: Boards > Localities > North America > United States > States > Michigan > Counties > Ottawa <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=localities.northam.usa.states.michigan.counties.ottawa> Boards > Surnames > Boomhour <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.boomhour> Boards > Surnames > Cochran <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.cochran> Boards > Surnames > Darland <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.darland> Boards > Surnames > Davar <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.davar> Boards > Surnames > Dever <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.dever> Boards > Surnames > Grote <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.grote> Boards > Surnames > Haight <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.haight> Boards > Surnames > Hendrickson <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.hendrickson> Boards > Surnames > Kirkham <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.kirkham> Boards > Surnames > Otting <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.otting> Boards > Surnames > Van arsdale <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.van-20-arsdale> Boards > Surnames > Vanarsdale <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.vanarsdale>
Hello All, I apologize to anyone who gets more than one copy of this e-mail. I am considering the pros and cons of participating in this (quoted below) DNA study and am wondering if any other surnames related to my family tree are involved in a similar study? After all, if we "do it" for one family line and can use the same data/fees to research another family line then my husband's thrifty nature may be appeased <grin>. Following the two messages posted to the HOYT list you will find some questions I have sent to the coordinators. Please do let me know if any of the surnames receiving this message are also participating in a DNA study. THANK YOU. Terri Rene -------- Original Message -------- Announcing a HOYT GENEALOGY DNA PROJECT, Coordinator Dan Wharton, firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 914-738-3722 home. This project will be examining some standard marker genes from the male Y chromosome inherited biologically from father to son, conveniently paralleling the tradition of passing surnames from father to son. This project is designed to answer two basic questions: (1) How closely related, if at all, are the various Hoyt lineages and Hoyt surname variations (Hoit, Hoyt, Haight, Hight etc.)? Do the descendants of John Hoyt and Simon Hoyt have matching Y genes, indicating a recent, common ancestor? (2) What is the ancient history of the Hoyt lineages in Europe and in the British Isles in particular? It is now possible to get fairly good readings from Y chromosome DNA as to male lineage origin from one of three main populations: Ancient resident Briton/Celtic, Anglo Saxon invader, or Norwegian Viking. We are hoping to get representation from many different Hoyt lines in the USA and Europe. The database will be an invaluable resource for Hoyt family researchers finding themselves at a "dead end" and looking for that missing link. Sample collection is accomplished privately at home with simple "cheek scrapers" and samples are sent to the lab through the mail. Results will be made available to all interested parties and identified only by pre-1900 ancestors and their geographical locations. Participant identities will be confidential (e-mail addresses shared only by mutual consent). Cost per participant is estimated to be less than $200, assuming that at least six Hoyts participate in the study. Note that all Hoyt males within your own, extended family would be expected to share the same Y genes so it is most economical to process just one sample from either yourself or one of your male Hoyt relatives and share costs among all interested family members. For more information and answers to any questions you have, please contact Dan Wharton and Marilyn Hoyt at email@example.com or call 914-738-3722 USA. We are looking forward to hearing from you. >Here is an update on the Hoyt DNA study. We now have participation from >Hoyts and Hites and are continuing to get inquiries.

My apparent ancestor, John Devers died 31 Aug., 1843 in Clinton co., MO per the will date. The administrator was Merit Devers, and one of the securities was Alexander Devers. Another researcher mentioned a Nancy Maret who married a John Devers in Garrard county, KY in 1808. This is very likely the same John Devers. There were a number of members of the Maret family who lived in Clay county area at the same time as the Devers. There are a few Devers descendants with the name Merit, Merrit, etc. John's known sons were Alex, Merit, John Perry, and James. Alexander Devers, born in Crab Orchard, KY in 1814 lived in Missouri; 1840 Clay county, 1850-1870 Gentry county. Alexander spent the entire Civil War in the 1st MO Confederate Brigade. Two of his sons, John Arthur and Alva Merit, were also in 1st MO Confederate Brigade. These brothers plus two more, James M. and Alex Jr., were all likely involved with guerillas; specifically George Todd, and later Oliver Sheperd. James M. Devers was hung by a lynch mob in Richmond, MO for his participation in the Hughes Wasson bank robbery. This James was "captured" in Crab Orchard, KY circa 1868-9. Alex patented land in Gentry county in 1850. A considerable amount of research has been performed on this family by other cousins who would likely share additional data if there is some relationship. Alex was married to Penelope Nicholson and they had a number of other children; Elizabeth, William, Archie, Sarah, Robert, Mary and possibly others. Merit Devers, must have died young. I only find one other document about Merit, a land patent in Gentry county in 1848. John Perry Devers, was born 1826 in Crab Orchard, KY-died 2/17/1873 in Bethany, Harrison, MO. He married Mary Martha Lee about 1847 (would like to find marriage records). John was the sheriff of Harrison county 1856-1860. He owned and operated the Ohio House Hotel in Bethany. Would like to find John in 1850 census. James Devers-might have died young in Kentucky. Are these related? a.. Salem W. Devers born 1835 son of William Dever and Jane Clark, Clinton county, MO. b.. William Devers in 1860 Ray co., MO census. c.. George Devers in 1860-70 Clay co., MO census, born in KY in 1832 d.. James Dever 1870 Jackson co., MO census. e.. John C. Deavor 1870 Clay co., MO census. Another researcher was looking for the following who is most likely related: John Campbell Devers b. 29 Dec 1833 in Garrard Co., KY-d. Lebo, KS June 9, 1915. Moved from Ky in the 1860s to Holt, Clinton, MO. He married Josephine Holt, of Holt, MO in 1867. His first wife's name was thought to be Miranda, Marilla, or Marilda-married in KY, no children. His father's name was William or Billy Devers. There is a William Devers in 1840 Garrard co., KY census. Will be glad to share data, or help any way I can. Thanks. Don Knight
