Belle H. Piper, mother, b: Mar 1835, 65, widowed, 3 children with 3 living, b: PA, parents b: PA. [Note: Isabella Yocum] I am still trying to figure out who the other two children are that she says she had.

I know that Joseph Devor's 2nd. wife Elizabeth was a Piper, in 1880 her two sister's Katharine & Jane Piper were living with her.

I also know that the Jane that is married to William Yocum is Barbara Jane Devor, d/o Joseph & Maria ? Devor.

Can anyone shed any light on these families. I have the Yocum family as that is my direct line into the Piper, Devor/Deavor's.

Kind regards,
Cheryl Myers
