I am just starting to do some research on my husband's family. Looking for any information on the parents of his grandfather John William DEVER born June 3, 1852 in Bristol, Elkhart County, Indiana and died December 31, 1928 in Brookfield, Linn County, Missouri.In 1892 he married Mary Elizabeth COOK STONE BAKER born December 27, 1857 in Indiana, the daughter of Daniel COOK and Katherine MACKLIN COOK. I have information on Mary COOK but almost nothing on John DEVER.
John and Mary had two children:
Martha Elizabeth "Mattie" Dever SWANK born 1894
Noel E. DEVER born 1900 in Linn County, Missouri (my husband's father)
Thank you in advance for any help on the parents of John William DEVER.
