I have just recently started my own family tree search. I am looking for the DeVille history also. My grandfather was Louis DeVille. His children are Lillie, Mary, Martin, Sydney, Louie and another? He had a sister named Lou, I believe. His brother(?) married Josephine. His father's name was Basile DeVille. I think his father was Alexander DeVille. Someone in the family married an Indian woman. She was hanged because of it. My mother Lillie has a picture of her that I'm trying to get a copy of. Does any of this sound familiar?
