Blanche Etta Sill

F, b. 28 October 1858, d. 7 December 1952
     Note: Blanche Sill was born in Pennsylvania in 1858, the daughter of John and Mary (Stiver) Sill. Mary died in childbirth, and Blanche was raised by her father and her mother's sister, Mariah. When Blanch was twelve*, Mariah and husband Jacob Fetter moved their family to Leesburg, Tennessee. They took Blanche with them. Twice Blanche's father came to Tennessee to coax her home, but she was happy and thriving in Leesburg. She was educated in private Lutheran Boarding Schools and also at Washington College, in Washington College, Tennessee. (Much of this information was provided by Mary Russell (DeVault) Butcher.)

Jacob and Mariah (Sill) Fetter, their two children, Mariah's brother, Frederick Sill, and Frederick's one-year-old daughter, Blanche Sill, are shown living together in the 1860 Census for Bedford County, Pennsylvania. Jacob and Mariah, daughter Sarah Fetter, son Thomas Reuben Fetter and Thomas' wife, Nancy (Dickins) Fetter moved from Pennsylvania to Leesburg, Washington County, Tennessee shortly after the Civil War. They are shown there in the 1870 Census and Blanche is listed as being eleven years old. The Fetter's daughter, Sarah Fetter, married a Gideon W. Carmack. Gideon was a brother of Mary Caroline (Carmack) DeVault, second wife of John Davault.

Leah Cromwell Sill was Blanche's grandmother. Leah was reportedly also grandmother to Charles Cromwell (husband of Doris Duke) and to his sister, Margaret Cromwell (first wife of General Douglas McArthur), but these relationships are not confirmed.

There is an old photo of the DeVault Tavern showing a number of guests in the yard. The caption says that it was on the occasion of Frederick Russell "Russell" Davault going to visit Blanch Sill before they were married. In order to make sense of all of this, one needs to know that the Fetters were living in the DeVault Tavern. Prior to the Civil War, John Davault, who had inherited the Tavern, had moved with his family to the nearby farm known as Sunnyside. (Sunnyside or Sunny Side was a farm and large brick house originally owned by the family of John's wife, Amanda Jane (Russell) Davault. At the time that the above mentioned photo was taken, probably the late 1870s, Russell was living with his family at Sunnyside. Russell and Blanche were married in 1880. Russell and Blanche lived their entire lives in the DeVault Tavern, Leesburg, Tennessee.

Blanche Etta Sill was born on 28 October 1858 at Bedford, Bedford Co., PA.1 She was the daughter of Frederick Sill and Mary Stiver.1 Blanche Etta Sill married Frederick Russell DeVault, son of John DaVault and Amanda Jane Russell, on 4 February 1880 at Leesburg, Washington Co., TN. Blanche Etta Sill died on 7 December 1952 at Leesburg, Washington Co., TN, at age 94. She was buried in December 1952 at Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Leesburg, Washington Co., TN.
