You're part of the family I've been searching for. Delbert's grandfather was
Hugh Devling. Hugh's son Robert is my great-great-grandfather. Hugh's father Roger
had 12 sons, no daughters.
A couple of years ago my mother & I spent a week in Pennsylvania and visited Lock
Haven and the Devling Family cemetery in Sterling Run. I have a transcription of all the
graves we found there and can share the information I have. It's been rough getting
all the Devling boys straightened out because of their tendency to name them all Hugh,
Robert and William. Then there were the instances where the orphan children of one son
went to live with another...so I know we've gotten some of the children mixed up with
their cousins or uncles of the same names. Any info you could provide would be greatly
appreciated. I can share the info I know is correct about our side of the family.
