Nice to hear from you. I would love to hear what your father hears about the Deverell family and see if we are related.
My great grandmother, Genevieve Deverell was born 1886 Lapeer, Mich. to Robert and Cora Bronson Deverell. She married Anton (Anthony Keppler) and were in Montana 1907, Las Vegas 1910, Seattle sometime after that and she died 1923 Alberta, Canada.
I have heard that Anton married Vivian Gordon, Genevieve's cousin?
I know that she also had a brother, Robert Deverell, that lived sometime in Las Vegas, Nevada.
I have worked my maiden name line clear back to the 1740's, and haven't really started this maternal line of mine yet. I do have some paperwork (buried somewere around here) that dates back to (talking off the top of my head here)George Deverell, who I believe was a traveling minister. I have a story that was written by one of his children.
I live in Seattle, and you can e-mail me at MCampen@aol.com. I'm married with two children ages 13 and 9.
