Sarah , the subject to this sketch, was united in marriage to Thomas Devaney back in North Carolina and to this union, were born eight children. In 1845, Mr and Mrs Devaney came to Indiana and settled in Jackson township. Hamilton county, Indiana. Here they made for themselves a home. Here their children were born and here they lived for almost a half century. Mrs. Devaney united with the Lutheran church when she was yet a girl. She was a woman who loved her home and was devoted to her family and friends. She believed in the Gosepl of the Helping Hand and was ever ready to assist in every good work. Mrs. Devaney was in failing healthy since the first of the present year, but not confined to her bed all the time. she departed this life just as the morning sun was gilding the eastern horizon, April 11, 1908., at the age of 89 years, 4 months, and 10 days. She leaves to mourn her loss five children, one brother, and four sisters, twenty three grandchildren, twenty one great grandchildren, besides a large number of other relatives and friends. Like one of old she was not, because God saw fit to take her home with Him.
