Louisa DeWald

F, b. 6 August 1798, d. 17 June 1883
     Note: Preserved many of the family records that now exist, working with Dr. E. O. Guerrant of KY.

Louise (DeWald) Kitzmiller stands out as one of the most remarkable characters in the DeVault/Kitzmiller family. Her intense pride and loyalty to her family, both the Kitzmillers and DeVaults; her sayings and remarks, that have been handed down through several generations, are cause to remember her with pride.

Louise did more than anyone else to preserve the old records of the family. In the summer of 1875 Dr. E.O. Guerrant, who had married Mary Davault, daughter of Louise's cousin, John Davault, came by to visit Louise. She related the genealogy of the family to him. It included a list of the children of Henry Dewald, whom they married and all their grandchildren and whom they married. It also included a few dates and other data about Henry Dewald, such as the cost of the family's trip to America. All of this information was told from memory. Dr. Guerrant made several copies of the genealogy. One was given to his brother-in-law, John Baker DeVault. Another copy was given to Louise's brother, Daniel DeWald. These two copies were kept up-to-date. The one given to Daniel DeWald was best preserved and maintained.

Frederick Russell DeVault, who knew her well, he being 28 years old when she died, said she had the gift of "counting kin." He also said that she was charming, witty and proud of both families the DeVaults and the Kitzmillers.

Louise was the catylist that caused the changing the spelling of the family name from Davault to DeVault by insisting that the nationality of her grandfather, Henry Dewald, was French and not German. There is much evidence to suggest that she was wrong in her assertion, but today, many still believe that Henry was from France and not Germany.

Louisa DeWald was born on 6 August 1798 at Germany Twp., Adams (formerly York Co.), PA. She was the daughter of Philip DeWald and Catharine Lang. Louisa DeWald married John Kitzmiller, son of Martin Kitzmiller and Mary Elizabeth DeWald, 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. Louisa DeWald lived at Spring House (Stone House), DeVault's Ford, Washington Co., TN. She died on 17 June 1883 at Boone's Creek, Washington Co., TN, at age 84. She was buried in June 1883 at Boone's Creek Church of Christ Cemetery, Boone's Creek, Washington Co., TN.

Lydia DeWald

F, b. 4 April 1796, d. 1866
     Note: per Tracy Devault:

Newland DeVault says that there is an entry in the baptismal records for Saint Matthew's Lutheran Church that says, "Born 4 April 1796, Baptised, 10 August, 1796: Julia; Parents: Phillip Thebald and Catherine; Sponsor: Anna Marie Rustaborn." Newland said that this was the daughter that came to be known as Lydia. He suspected that her full name was Lydia Julia DeWald. When Lydia was about seven years old the family moved to Baltimore, Maryland. In 1810 her parents bought land in Hampshire County, Virginia (now West Virginia). They are shown there in the 1820, 1830 and 1840 censuses. I expect that Lydia was married in Virginia and probably had at least some of her children there.


Newland goes on to say that Lydia married William Sanders and moved to Cass County, Illinois. He says they had seven children. (In his 1937 report, he gives this list of children: Mary, Margaret, Catherine, Elizabeth, Julia, William and James. This list may have come from the final (1846) settlement of Henry Dewald's estate.) Finally, Newland says that Lydia was listed as a widow in the 1846 (final) settlement of Henry Dewald's estate. At the time she was supposed to be living in Beardstown, Cass County, Illinois.

Lydia DeWald was born on 4 April 1796 at York Co., PA. She was the daughter of Philip DeWald and Catharine Lang. Lydia DeWald was christened on 10 August 1796 at St. Matthew Lutheran Church, Hanover, York Co., PA; Christened name was "Julia". Sponsor: Anna Maria Rustaborn.1 She married William Sanders on 21 September 1817. Lydia DeWald lived in 1850 at Bernadotte Twp., Fulton Co., IL.2 She died in 1866 at McDonough Co., IL. She was buried in 1866 at Camp Creek Cemetery, Industry Twp., McDonough Co., IL.

M, b. 9 April 1837, d. 13 January 1913
     Note: In Tennessee William had grist mill, farm and store; in his spare time he was a carpenter and cabinet maker. In 1882 the family (children aged 7-22) left for Albert Lea, Minnesota where Ruble kin were established; then went on straight west to Dakota Territory (McCook County) where they bought what has since proved to be choice land, and on 800 acres they made a new home. They could have survived financially and prospered in spite of hazards of climate, prairie fires and pests, but they could not survive the local prejudice again William having been a Confederate soldier. A "shyster" lawyer found an "error" in the title and they lost everything. In the meantime their son, Henry, had gone farther west to Canyonville, Douglas County, Oregon, where Tennessee relatives (Kitzmiller/Hughes) had settled and pronounced the prospects "good," and William Valentine and the family with exception of two eldest sons moved to Canyonville and the Umpqua Valley, and soon after that to Cottage Grove where they had a fine home and a grocery store the last 15 years of their lives.

William Valentine DeWald was born on 9 April 1837 at Washington Co., TN. He was the son of Daniel DeWald and Mary M. Miller. William Valentine DeWald married Mary Ann Ruble, daughter of Rev.
