Lary (sic) DeVault, 2 1/2 of 3227 Fairmount Ave. probably has lost his taste for ant syrup because he doesn't like luke warm salt water.

Police yesterday forcefully induced him to drink large quantities of the "icky"-tasting stuff after he had swallowed a "jigger" of syrup. Their explanation that it was an "antidote" didn't help a bit.

Oakley, proprietor of the Oakley Theater, died at 1:35 a.m. Monday at her home on Lake Avenue after a serious illness of more than eight weeks duration. Death, which relieved her of a long and patient suffering was said to have been caused by a complication of diseases following an operation performed some time ago.

Besides her husband, Mrs. Oakley is survived by one son, Schreiber and two daughters Margaret W. and Jaunita E. Oakley. Many sorrowful friends viewed the body at the Cadien and Kay funeral home Monday afternoon. The remains accompanied by Mr. Oakley, were shipped Tuesday morning to Pittsfield, Ill., Mrs. Oakley's former home.

Pittsfield Woman Dies In Florida
Body of Mrs. Clarence Oakley Will Be Brought Here For Burial.

Mrs. Clarence Oakley died at the family home in Lake Worth, Florida, on Monday morning at 2:30 o'clock after a long illness of kidney trouble and complications. Mrs. Oakley underwent an operation four months ago for appendicitis and since that time has been in a critical condition. Charles Oakley received a message on Monday informing him of the death and asking that arrangements be made to meet the body at Louisiana on Thursday afternoon at 4:35. Mr. Oakley and R. D. Plattner accompanied by the family will bring the remains here and funeral services will be held on Friday. Interment will be in the West cemetery. Mrs. Oakley was formerly Leotta DeVault, daughter of Edward DeVault of this city. She is survived by her husband and three children Schreiber, Margaret and Juanita; a brother, Charles DeVault; and a sister, Mrs. Bessie Kramer of Barry. The Oakleys left Pittsfield a year ago last June.


Leota E. Oakley, wife of C. E. Oakley, died at her home in Lake Avenue, Monday 1:30 A.M. Death came as a blessing to the patient suffering after a lingering illness of the past 9 weeks. Mrs. Oakley was well liked in this vicinity and her many friends sympathize with those that are here to mourn her loss as she was known by all her friends to possess such a pleasing personality. Mr. Oakley and family came to Lake Worth two years ago. The body remained in state at the Funeral Home of Cadieu and Kay, until Tuesday A.M., when it was accompanied north by the husband to Pittsfield, Ill. to be laid to rest beside that of her son William who died five years ago. Mrs. Oakley was born in Pittsfield, Ill., February 1st, 1886. Surviving her are Clarence E.

She was buried in May 1925 at Pittsfield West Cemetery, Pittsfield, Pike Co., IL, Findagrave #122922670.

Child of Leota Eleanor DeVault

  • Schreiber Lucian Oakley+ b. 22 Feb 1905, d. 27 May 1954; There is some uncertainty about this relationship and name. The 1920 census shows "Schrieber" Oakley, age 14, living with Leota and Clarence Oakley. He was the same age as Clarence's son Everett C. Oakley, but Everett was consiistently listed with his mother and was apparently in her custody. So one assumes that "Schrieber" in 1920 was the same individual as "Samuel" in the 1910 census, grandson of Elbert DeVault. It would appear that this individual was an out-of-wedlock son of Leota E. DeVault, and for some reason his name was changed from Samuel to Schreiber. In 1910, one can find Matthew Schreiber, age 26 and single, living with his brother John in Woodville, a short distance east of Pike County, Illinois. DLB 2013

     Louis Pence DeVault was born on 1 March 1908 at Shelby Co., IN. He was the son of William Walker DeVault and Estella Mae Pence. Louis Pence DeVault married Bertha Lou Ella Plowman, daughter of John S. Plowman and Sarah Emma Foster, circa 1928. Louis Pence DeVault began military service in 1931 U.S. Army, listed as a private on U.S. Army Passenger List, A.S.N. 6356816, 13 Eng. PS, on the ship St. Mihiel, departing Ft. Slocum, New York on 18 MAR 1931. He died on 30 June 1969 at Madison, Jefferson Co., IN, at age 61.
Note: Louis suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and was hospitalized 1942-1943 and again from 1943-1969 at Madison State Hospital, Indiana.

Per Tracy Devault, Ellen Hoyt wrote:

Louis was married to Bertha Lou Ella Plowman (1906-1991) born and died in North Carolina and they had a son Bobby Louis DeVault (7-7-1928-8-12-1993). He was married to Mary Louise Covington (1926-1985) and so far one daughter Valerie "Rene" DeVault (7- 4-1960-8-11-1979). She was murdered in Florida by Joseph Alan Marter who hung himself in his cell in 1992. I have been trying to find obituaries for Bobby Louis, Mary Louise and Valerie and Bertha but with no luck.

Also the reason he was donated to science is because his sister Elizabeth and some of the other siblings said they couldn't bury him due to financial reasons. In actuality there was a grave for him next to his parents in Acton. In 1920 William and Stella purchased 6 plots when William David died. Two are unused and since I'm a descendant they are now in my name. Also since he was in the military he could of had those benefits but they refused. Louis' wife Bertha remarried in 1952 to a Turner Lee Gregory. Elizabeth didn't even send him to Madison with his own clothing. He was there from 1942-1943 and 1943-1968 and 1968-1969. In early 1968 he was released to the care of Minnie Bear who ran the Bear family care home in Dupont Indiana. It was a farm which is a setting that he wanted to be in. He worked on the farm earning some money and was very happy and had no issues while living there. Only reason he was sent back to Madison was due to his cancer and his health failing fast. Minnie actually visited him after she had to send him back to the hospital.
