Note: Samuel DeVault is shown on the 1910 Census for Pike County, Illinois as the grandson of Elbert DeVault. It is surmised that he was the son of Leota, and was the same individual as "Schrieber" Oakley, age 14, shown in the 1920 census. But it is also possible that Sam could have been the son of May or Margaret DeVault. Note that a Matthew Schreiber, age 26, single, appears in the 1910 census living with his brother John at Woodville, just east of Pike County, Illinois.
