News: Looking for females who are in the pure female lines (mother to daughter) from William and Sarah who are willing to do an mtDNA test. Such a person would be descended along an all female line from Mary DEVIN Biggers or Margaret DEVIN Reynolds. The hope is to identify the markers for Sarah SMITH Devin to help identify her parents. Contact the webmaster if interested.

Devin descendant, Stanley Wayne Devin, passed away at 1:30 a.m. on Dec. 4, 2014. He was the last living child of Ira & Oleta Devin.

    High Chair
    High Chair
    Made by Carl Devin for his son, David in 1956 or 1957. It was made when David's brother, Gary, was able to sit in the baby high chair with the tray, but David was too small to sit in a regular chair at the dinner table. All of Carl and Pat's children used the chair as they got too big for their baby high chairs.

    The chair was made from wood recycled from the tops of school desks. The Woodburn school district purchased new desks to replaces the old rail desks. The old desks were being thrown away, so Carl used the wood.

    The chair was handed down to their, son David.
