Ida Bell DeVault

F, b. 16 August 1868, d. 10 November 1927
     Ida Bell DeVault was born on 16 August 1868 at Clark Co., MO.1 She was the daughter of George C. DeVault and Prudence Davalt.

Note: from Tracy DeVault:

At age 2, Ida's family was living at St Francisville, Des Moines Twp, Clark Co., Missouri. When Ida was about 20 years old she married Peter John "Pete" Peterson. They must have had a hard life losing 3 of their 5 children before they reached adulthood. For much of their married life Pete, Ida and family lived in Peterson, Clay, Iowa. (Peterson, Iowa was not named for this family.) Ida died in Missouri in 1927, the year her first granddaughter was born. From pictures it looks like she was a lady of short stature, her daughter Leona was less than 5' tall. Ida's husband, Pete Peterson, came to the United States with his parents at age 10 from near Copenhagen, Denmark. His granddaughter, Lucille Marilyn "Lou" (Parker) Cassady-Pillow, was 13 when he died. She had fond memories of him. He lived with her family when she was a kid. His farm was in Cane Creek, 8 miles west of Poplar Bluffs on Highway 60. He sold the property in 1933 for $578.00. He originally bought it for $1,300.00, but the depression made the price come down. Pete was a carpenter. He built the family home in Peterson, Iowa, when his daughter Leona was 3 years old.

No record of this marriage has been found in Burke County, North Carolina.

Letter from Miss Nancy Louise DeVault to Newland DeVault:

"I visited my Grandfather on several occasions when I was quite young -- when I knew my Grandfather, he seldom left the house, did not use glasses and could read well without -- my two Uncles Frank and Ed, lived with him. Neither were married until after his death (in 1908), when Ed married my mother two years after my father's death (Hugh). The farm is still in the family, but is being sold since my mother's death (1951). It's seven miles from Morganton in Burke Co., N. C. on the Bowa River. Most of the homeplace came from my grandmother's family, Alexander, 50 acres of which was a land grant. We children would like to keep it in the family, but so many heirs it had to be sold."

On December 26, 1862, Jacob A. DeVault received a land grant from the State of North Carolina containing 50 acres in Burke Co., North Carolina (Number 6461, recorded in Book F-3, Page 291).

[His brother, George Henry DeVault also operated a tannery at Elizabethton, Tennessee, which was also destroyed by the Federals.]
"My grandfather [Jacob DeVault, Sr.] came to the DeVault Settlement when my father was a young man, 16 years old." [Joseph remembers his father telling him this and as his father was born in 1819, this would make the year 1835, when Jacob, Sr. left Washington Co., Tennessee and moved to Sullivan Co., Tennessee, just east of DeVault's Ford. This was about the time of Jacob, Sr.'s second marriage.] "The home in which my Grandfather lived near the DeVault Settlement, on the Watauga, was burned. He was badly burned and spent the remainder of his life with his datghter, Mary, who married Warrington Hunt and was buried in the old Cemetery at Jonesboro. I do not know where or when his first wife died or was buried."



Note: Jacob, Sr.'s first wife, Rachel Dorothy (Kitzmiller) Dewald died on August 8, 1826 and was buried in the church yard of St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Hanover, Pennsylvania.

Note: Letter from Joseph G. DeVault to Newland DeVault, 1957:

Just a little to acquaint you with our children. We raised six and helped to raise three of my younger brother's. We gave all six of our children a college education and helped two of my brother's to get one (one died) -- not a black sheep in the family. All are doing excellent in their work, but so, so far from home that most of them do not get here more than once a year -- all members of the Church and I hope Christians. I pray daily that they may live better lives than I have been able to do. And may God continue his mercy on us. May God bless you and yours."

Joseph Gilbert DeVault died on 30 October 1961 at Emory, Washington Co., VA, at age 89
