Pat, here is where I got James Dever as father of Henry Dever. Aug. 2,1996 from William J Dever Jr. 435 S Anaheim Hills Rd.,Apt 343 Anaheim, CA. 92807
I understand that you are researching a Dever line. My Dever line is as follows James Dever b.unk d.abt 1778 wife ukn. Henry Dever b.abt 1745 d. 1806 wife Elizabeth Miles Henry was Rev. War Vet. came to Ky from Penn. in 1790? Stephen DEver b.abt 1790 Penn. d.ukn wife, Eunis Atherton Benjamin Dever b.1814 Ky d. ukn. wife, Sarah Daily Miles Dever b.1841 Ky d.1919 wife, Eliza Howard Thomas Dever b. 1867 Kan. d.1934 wife, Eliza Huffman William Dever b.1898 MO. d. 1942 wife, Katherine Moore William Dever JR. b. 1918 Kan. wife, Laura Bell Davis.
I have a fairly complete history of all above except James Dever.
Signed, Wm Dever Jr.
I haven't compared this to what I have now, which is prob. more and more correct dates, and keep in mind this is Wm.Jr's lineage.
