We are not sure if George Washington DeHaven was born in Indiana or Ohio. This tombstone says he was born in 1849, but that might not be correct. Census records report the date as 1855 and even George gave a different date on his marriage license. He is the son of Ezra and Elizabeth Hower DeHaven. He lived most of his life in Michigan.
He was married to Sarah (Sadie) Lent. He had four sons, Ivan who died in Colorado in December 1911, unmarried, George Frederick, William and Claude.
George died in Ledwidge, Perry Co. Arkansas April, 1915.
Pictured next to his tomb stone is his great grandson, William R. DeHaven, b. 1942 in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
Many thanks to Barbara Rogers for her help the day we visited this cemetery. Love You Barbara!
