My apologies for not answering what I think must have been your Email a couple of days ago but I did not recognize the email address or the topic given and with all of the virus scams lately I have not been opening mail from people I don't know - unless it has a title of one of the geneological families I am searching.
Anyway, my mother Alice is not the one you are thinking of.In fact I do not have the name Vera Cldye in any of my DeVane files so she must be from another line.I understand that many Florida DeVanes are descended from Samuel R. DeVane and I have only a little info on that line.
Mother has two brothers - E J and Charles.Their parents were Aaron J DeVane and Beulah Albritton, then descended from Edward J DeVane, Benjamin F DeVane, Benjamin DeVane, John DeVane Jr, John DeVane Sr and Thomas.
My mother Alice is doing pretty well for her age, 83 1/2, but she is getting weaker and always afraid of falling.She already has one articifical hip from a fall.We probably will not get to the reunion if she doesn't want to go.Unless it rains between now and then I know we will not go.It is JUST TOO HOT!
Anyway, it's always good to be in touch with cousins, no matter how distance.I just posted a message in the DeVane GenForum about some of my efforts to update the DeVane geneology.I was appreciate any info you may have to share - and of course, I am willing to do the same for you.
