Janie, My ggrandfather was a Deviney also. I found a W.Tuner Devinney,W. could stand for Walter.He is the son of Joseph Redding Devinney.W. Tuner was born 10-12-1869. His father was born in Tennessee and his mother in North Carolina.I have looked for a while and just ran into this information.Keep in touch and hope we get somewhere.My ggrandfather spoke very little English and was said to be of Dutch desendant.
