Palmer, daughter of William George Palmer and Maria Electa Brainerd, on 15 April 1885 at Jersey Co., IL, Apparently the marriage deteriorated badly sometime between 1900 and 1910. In the 1910 census, James was in the state hospital for the insane at Jacksonville, and his marital status was listed as widowed. Georgia was head of household on the farm in Macoupin County and also is listed as widowed. When James died in 1911, his body was returned to his sister, and neither his wife nor children are mentioned in his obituary. James was buried at Girard and Georgia was buried in the same cemetery as her parents at Kemper.

John Kitzmiller

M, b. 5 December 1801, d. 4 August 1894
     John Kitzmiller lived at Spring House (Stone House), DeVault's Ford, Washington Co., TN; STONE HOUSE B:

John's father built a home for them on part of his large farm. The home, built of stone, became known as "Stone House B" to distinguish it from the parents' home which became known as "Stone House A."

Stone House B was a gem of a home. When compared with other DeVault-Kitzmiller homes, it is small and lacks the setting of the other homes. But though it lacks the gracefullness of Valentine Davault's old home overlooking the Watauga River, the solid dependability of Frederick Davault's old Tavern in Leesburg and the beautiful setting of Stone House A, it has a beauty all of its own. This is primarly due to the fact that it was the home of that remarkable woman, Louise (DeWald) Kitzmiller, who gave us the first genealogy of the family of her grandfather, Henry Dewald of York County, Pennsylvania.

The house is a story and a half high. There were four large rooms on the lower floor and three rooms above. In addition, under the rafters, extending the entire length of the house on both sides were two long, narrow rooms with built in shelves. The main hall of the home is seven feet wide, it has high ceilings and very low doors. In some of the rooms below, small folding doors, less than two feet wide were used. Very similar doors were used in Jefferson's home in Monticello. These doors were taken down and stored in the second floor. Above the fireplaces are fine examples of 18th century hand-carved mantles. The house was plastered both upstairs and down. Upstairs, in a place where some of the plaster had come off, one can see the handmade laths of various widths, lengths and thicknesses. In some of the plaster, animal hair can be seen which was used to strengthen the plaster. The front porch is supported by eight hand-carved posts and all around the top of the porch delecate work was done by hand. The same kind of work as found on the porch of Frederick's Tavern and the old porch that was attached to the side of Valentine's home.

Of the homes listed in the "1957 Historical Sites and Homes, Pioneer Pilgrimage," six of those listed in Washington County were DeVault/Kitzmiller homes, including the Stone Houses A and B.
He was born on 5 December 1801 at Boone's Creek, Washington Co., TN. He was the son of Martin Kitzmiller and Mary Elizabeth DeWald. John Kitzmiller married Louisa DeWald, daughter of Philip DeWald and Catharine Lang, on 8 August 1824 at Washington Co., TN, Jacob Ellis, J.P. performed the marriage ceremony

John's father, Martin Kitzmiller, sent John on a business trip to Pennsylvania. On his way to or from Pennsylvania, John met his cousin, Louise DeWald. This meeting eventually resulted in a marriage in Tennessee.

Story told to Newland DeVault by Frederick Russell DeVault. John Kitzmiller died on 4 August 1894 at Canyonville, Douglas Co., OR, at age 92.
