DeVol family in IA

I found a DeVol family in IA. A daughter married into my family.

1900, Pottawattamie Co., Council Bluffs, John Walter DeVol was with his wife, Minnie Alice Lindsey. They had sons Albert and Harold with them on this census. John was born 24 Feb. 1874.
1910, Minnie A. DeVol was named head of household in the same place. Her husband was listed under her as "husband." He was a conductor on an electric car. He was born in SD and his parents in NY. Minnie and he had children: Albert L., Harold O., Ralph E., Alice D., and John W. with them.
I've not found them in 1920.
1930, they were not on the index, but son Ralph was, and still in Council Bluffs. Only son Ralph and daughter Theresa were with John Walter and Minnie Alice. Theresa Caroline DeVoll was born 12 May 1910 and married my interst, Milton Horace ETHERTON.
Theresa died April 1983 in Council Bluffs.

Would anyone have this NY family that traveled to SD, then to IA by 1900? I've not identified them in 1880.
