6 November 1854 in Springville, Utah, Utah, Devereaux Goodale married his second wife Mary Dorcas Warren.

Sadly, Mary died soon after she gave birth to their son Zenos D. Goodale. See the attached picture of their grave stone, the Find A Grave memorials, and Utah Cemetery databases for more details, although each contains slightly different data. Combining the details, Zenos was born 6 December 1855. 12 days later Mary died 18 December 1855. Zenos only lived one month and 15 days until 21 January 1856.

She died in 1851 - place not given [Probably 18 September 1851 in Goodale Township (later renamed Grant Township) near Wauconda, Lake, Illinois, United States]. He md (3) Alice Elizabeth Fisher, born 4 January, 1842 at Cedar Fort, Utah, Utah [Alice had a twin sister named Elizabeth who died as an infant. Before their birth records were found, many assumed they were one and the same, but Elizabeth was her twin not her name. She was born 4 January 1842 in Preston, Lancashire, England to John Fisher and Jane Pearson Fisher (Jane was the widow of James Hacking, so Alice had 6 Hacking half siblings and three Fisher siblings). Alice was married to two time widower Devereaux Goodale in 1858, probably in Cedar Fort, Utah, Utah where her mother was living at the time]. They moved to Star Valley, Elko, Nevada where she died 26 November, 1879, being the first person to be buried in
the cemetery there. From this marriage 7 children were born. Devereaux Goodale died at Star Valley, 10 November, 1887. Through Mildred Shortt writing to a member of this family after reading an obituary a granddaughter, Mrs. Bernice Madsen of Wells, Nevada was able to furnish many details on his life."
