Given to Alexander Devin, son of William Devin of Pittsylvania County by one of his brothers either William or John Devin. Family stories say the horn was carried by his brother while serving in the Revolutiionary war. It was carved while the brother was recovering from an illness or injury.

Alexander used it when he went off to preach. The horn was (1950) in the possession of William Devin, son of John Devin, son of Peyton Devin, son of Alexander Devin. The photograph was submitted by Carol Rick, a grand-daughter of William Devin. She presented the powder horn to the Indiana State Library.
