Just returned from a week in Minneapolis researching DeVol and found your message. Thanks much for responding. The 11/17/03 date of birth is the third I have, but probably the most accurate, as DeVol, himself, was the source of the other two. In Kansas State Prison he said his DOB was 11/17/04 in Battle Creek, Michigan and while in Minnesota State Prison he said 12/15/05 in Rockford, Ohio.

I did get a copy of Emma's death certificate. She died August 10, 1952 in Minneapolis and is buried in Lakewood Cemetery. The state does not have any death certificate on Lawrence. If you would like a copy of Emma's, let me know directly by email and I'll attach a copy for you.

Also, thanks much for the info on the family, I had most but the Lincoln info is much appreciated and I couldn't decifer the spelling of his father's name.

Do you happen to know of any of his direct family relatives, I would like to talk with them, if they allow it, to get a more personal picture of him.

Please contact me directly.
