It is believed that Elizabeth's maiden name was Baker, but this is not proven to the best of my knowledge. Their house was built by Cornelius Devore around 1800 on Wills Creek. The property is now owned by a Mrs. Deal (1968). When approaching the house, it appears to be a modern dwelling made of brick. This house, however, is built on the foundation of Cornelius Devore's house, and has been bricked over the original. In the dining room, it is possible to see the original woodwork of the old Devore house. Outside, in the barnyard, under a load of hay, are found the original foundation of the gristmill. This mill was later rebuilt and called Cook's Mill.

The place where Cornelius and Elizabeth gravestones are is on top of a small hill next to the Methodist Church. They were originally on top of the bluff near the church, but the Wills Creek had undercut the graves and the stones had fallen down the bluff, where they had been recovered, re-cut and removed to a hillside northeast of the Methodist Church, of which the Bedford County Devores were members.
