Daniel Devault and Keziah/Kezeah/Kesiah/Cisiria Green c 1768-1799 were married on May 3, 17856 by the Reverend Hugh Vance, who had started the first Presbyterian Church in Tuscorora and may have also served the Tomahawk area. Tuscorora Creek starts just west of Martinsburg, WV at the foot of North Mountain and flows north, then east through Martinsburg, entering Opequon Creek near Stonebridge Golf Course. The Tuscorora Presbyterian Church was established in 1740 by Scottish-Irish Presbyterians. The present church was built in 1802 and is the oldest in Berkeley County. It still contains the pegs on which worshipers hung their guns during services. The current church is west from Exit 13 off of Interstate 81 near Martinsburg, WV.

Daniel moved to Short Creek Township, Jefferson County, Ohio in 1798, then to Wayne County, Ohio in 1814. He died in Wayne County in 1828. From information available at this time, it appears that Keziah may have died around 1799 in Virginia.
