Frank and Jessie (Burch) Devers lived in (now) Meade Co., South Dakota which was Dakota Territory until 1889. They came in Nov., 1885 and lived about
3 miles away from my great grandparents, John Erickson and his wife, Julia (Thompson) Erickson.

Jessie Devers was a midwife to all the pioneer ladies in the area for 40 miles around. In fact, Jessie Devers
delivered my grandmother, Eliza Erickson, born in 1885
in a home birth. Eliza Erickson was born on Morris Creek in then Dakota Territory...she being the dau. of John Erickson and Julia (Thompson) Erickson. Eliza grew up
and later married in 1910 in Meade Co. to Wm. Sullivan.
