     Note: Samuel DeVault was the eighth child born to Frederick and Margaret Davault. He was born in 1824 at the DeVault Tavern in Leesburg, Tennessee. In 1848, Samuel married Nancy Kitzmiller, the daughter of his first cousin, David Kitzmiller. Samuel and Nancy were married in her parent's large 2 1/2 story brick home near Buffalo Ridge. At the time it was built, it was the finest home west of Roanoke, Virginia. It was reported to be a double wedding, with Nancy's sister, Sarah Kitzmiller marrying Samuel Backman.

After the wedding, according to Russell (Frederick Russell) DeVault, Samuel DeVault and Samuel Backman went into business together in Leesburg under the name of BACKMAN AND DAVAULT. The building they used was the same building that Frederick Davault had lived in while building the Tavern. The two families were living together in Leesburg. By 1860 the families were no longer living together, the Backmans having moved to Sullivan County near Kingsport.

Samuel and Nancy had settled on a farm at Cedar Creek and opened a grocery business. They joined Buffalo Ridge Baptist Church, the first Baptist church in Tennessee. Nancy's brother, David, and grandson, Robert, were ordained there. Samuel and Nancy's son, Frederick, was pastor at Buffalo Ridge from 1905 - 1910.

In 1860, Samuel and Nancy's two-story frame house was destroyed by a cyclone. Their son Frederick was left sitting on the fireplace hearth.

Both Samuel and Nancy are buried in the Buffalo Ridge Church Cemetery.

Obituary -- The Telephone, Cuba, Crawford County, Missouri; Friday, September 21, 1900:

DAVAULT, SAMUEL
A Popular Young School Teacher Is Dead.

Samuel Davault departed this life September 9, 1900, being cut down in the prime of his life, being only 32 years of age. In this as in many other cases we see that death has no respect for persons. Those who are in the track of the destroyer must yield to his power, whether they be young or old. All men prepare for life but how few prepare for death. Mr. Davault never made any public profession of religion, but many times in conversation with the writer he has remarked I have great faith in God and His promises are sufficient. He was born in Maries county April 16, 1868, and was the second son of Jacob and Sarah Davault. He was one of the most prominent school teachers in Crawford county and had followed that profession for over ten years. At all times he was a man of kind heart and excellent judgment and loved by acquaintance, and the many expressions of sympathy on his untimely death warmly attests the strong friendships held by him in his life. About four weeks ago he fell down stairs, which caused malarial fever, followed by cancer of the spleen, which finally resulted in death. His death will be most widely felt as he was a most intelligent, useful and valuable citizen. With a mind perfectly clear and a faith admitting of no doubt, he peacefully fell asleep. To his widowed mother, brothers, and sisters we kindly say you are left to travel the balance of life's journey alone, but rest assured your parting will not be long. You shall meet again where there will be no more sad farewells and where all tears will be forever wiped away.-G. S. McIntosh.
