Henry Graydon DeVault

M, b. 21 October 1892, d. 6 November 1971
     Note: When Tracy Lynn DeVault was a kid, he was told several times that Henry had left his grandmother shortly after his dad was born. As he grew older, the story changed somewhat. Also, he was able to unearth some heretofore unknown facts. Here is what is now known.

Cecile moved to Bayard with her parents and two brothers some time after 1910. They had been living in Kirkman, Iowa. Cecile's father died in 1913 of appendicitis. His death left the family in a severe financial strait. Cecile was living with her mother when she and Henry were married on May 4, 1915. Cecile was then 21 years old and Henry was 22.

Sometime after they were married Cecile and Henry moved to Des Moines, Iowa. Tracy was told that they moved to Des Moines because Henry could find work there. (Tracy has since learned that Henry did not get along with his dad and that may have been the reason they moved away.) Cecile and Henry were living in Iowa when she became pregnant. The story Tracy's mom was told is that Cecile, being such a small women, caused concern that she might have a difficult delivery. It was decided that she would return to Bayard, so that she could be with her mother when their child was born. William Dallas DeVault (aka Bill) was born on March 7, 1918 (almost three years after Cecile and Henry had married). Apparently the delivery went well, but William became ill shortly after he was born. Within about three months Cecile had returned to Iowa. The story goes on to say that while cleaning their apartment she discovered evidence that a women had been living there while she was in Nebraska. She is supposed to have confronted Henry and he is supposed to have said, "Well, what did you expect would happen if you left me alone for several months?" Cecile then left Henry and returned to Bayard. Cecile told Marvel (Bill's wife) that Henry returned once when Bill was a couple of years old. Henry said he wanted to get back together, but by then Cecile was managing without him, and they apparently had some differences that they could not overcome.

Tracy's biggest problem with this story is that in tracking Henry down, he located the 1920 census for Des Moines, Iowa. It shows Cecile, Henry and his dad (then almost two years old) all living together. He is sure it was Cecile that provided the information to the census taker because his dad is listed as "Dallas". Only Cecile called his dad "Dallas" (Bill's middle name after Cecile's father). Henry called him William (his first name after Henry's father). This means that Cecile and Henry had been together for at least five years. They may have been together even longer than that. It is not known when she returned to Bayard.

In 1933, when Bill was fifteen years old, Cecile wrote to Henry's brother, William Lynn DeVault (aka "Lynn") who was then living in Livingston, Montana. She was out of work and trying to locate Henry. It is doubtful that she was able to locate him.

Letter from Cecile DeVault to her brother-in-law, William Lynn DeVault:

Bayard, Nebr.
Jan 19 - 1933

Dear Lynn:

Do you know where Henry is at this time? We heard he was with you some time ago. I'll tell you why I am asking.

I am out of work just now. Can't seem to get a job at any price, and since Henry hasn't sent Bill a thin dime in the past ten years, I thought he might help him a little now. You know Bill will be fifteen in March, is a "Freshie" this year, also a member of the Boy Scouts, he needs clothes. We have never asked Henry for anything (and never would could I find work) it seems to me it is no more than right for him to at least help some at this time. What do you think?

Would surely thank you a lot, if you help me locate him. We hope you are well, happy and prosperous.

Sincerely,

Cecile & Bill


As for Henry, he eventually moved to Detroit, Michigan. Tracy spoke to the oldest nephew of his second wife. He said that Henry showed up about 1935. He began working at the Chrysler automobile assembly plant on Kurcheval Street. Apparently he worked there until he retired. Shortly after he arrived in Detroit he began dating Josephine Brusso. They were eventually married and lived together until Henry died in 1973. Henry and Josephine owned a small wood frame house that was appraised at $32,000 when Josephine died in 1983. Henry was described as a difficult person to get to know. He worked during the week, had a garden and enjoyed keeping up his yard. On the weekends he would watch television and get mad at the commercials. (Tracy's dad used to watch television and get mad at the news.) Josephine's niece said that Henry had told them that he had been married before and had a son. Henry never talked about his family, but he did talk about farming when he was in the country.

Henry Graydon DeVault was born on 21 October 1892 at Bayard, Morrill Co., NE. He was the son of William Peter DeVault and Anna Elizabeth Campbell.

Letter from Miss Nancy Louise DeVault to Newland DeVault:

"I visited my Grandfather on several occasions when I was quite young -- when I knew my Grandfather, he seldom left the house, did not use glasses and could read well without -- my two Uncles Frank and Edd, lived with him. Neither were married until after his death (in 1908), when Ed married my mother two years after my father's death (Hugh). The farm is still in the family, but is being sold since my mother's death (1951). It's seven miles from Morganton in Burke Co., N. C. on the Bowa River. Most of the homeplace came from my grandmother's family, Alexander, 50 acres of which was a land grant. We children would like to keep it in the family, but so many heirs it had to be sold."

On December 26, 1862, Jacob A. DeVault received a land grant from the State of North Carolina containing 50 acres in Burke Co., North Carolina (Number 6461, recorded in Book F-3, Page 291).
