I have been looking for my 2 g grandfather, William Blaine Devers for years. I found him on the 1880 census in Wetzel county WV. At that time he had 2 children -- Mary, my great grandmother and Florrance D. Mary was 10 and Florrance was 3. His wife's name according to the census was Elvina. It indicates he was born in VA and was 31 at the time of the census. My great aunt told me that he died in Lansing, Michigan the day my dad was born, June 20, 1920 I wrote to Michigan for a death certificate and they could not find him. I am told he left his family in WV and moved to Michigan. I also thought his wife's name was Ellen Ferguson but I don't know. I don't know if his wife died and he left or what. Mary died in 1955. Someone said that they wondered if he had another family in Michigan. I don't know if there is a connection.
