I am looking for JOHN DEFENBAUGH of Ashland County, Ohio married to RUTH BRADEN in 1850 (he changed his name to DEVENBAUGH.) I have also seen his last name as Deavenbaugh and Deffenbaugh.
They had 11 little Devenbaughs, 6 born in Ohio and 5 born in Illinois where they relocated in 1856. Children were Lozene (Ben), John, James, Rossie, Samuel, Ephraim, Belle, Rebecca, David, Daniel, and Walter.
John died January 31, 1896 and Ruth died August 27, 1900, both in Creek Township, DeWitt County, Illinois and are both buried in Rose Cemetery there.
