Devall Family (Kalamazoo, MI)

Devall Family (Kalamazoo, MI)

Classification: Query
Surnames: Devall, Gumaer, Dorr
I'm trying to find out any information on some of the children of Eleazer Devall (1811-1890) and Nancy Gumaer (1812-1865) who later moved to Kalamazoo County, Michigan from New York State. From what I have, the two had a total of nine children. Of those, five moved to Michigan...Joseph (born 1836), Levi (born 1839), Charles (born 1843), Susan "Juliette" (born 1850) and William (born 1855). I believe Susan was married to a William Dorr (born 1849). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. :0)

Thanks for the information. I'm also looking for family history and descendants as well. I have children listed for a couple of them, but not all. Hopefully, I can find additional details. Once again, thanks. :0)

I was able to find a living descendant residing in my home state of North Carolina. I'll contact him within the next couple days. Thanks!

Looks like that link didn't work, just click on Kalamazoo instead of all boards and enter Devall.

Yeah, I did that already. Dagmar Averill is the only one that matches with what I have so far. I obtained contacts for two of her children as well as one other relative. I'll try them later this evening or tomorrow. Thanks.
