Introduction to this page

Normally, pedigrees are shown in pedigree charts, however, these charts are horizontal 
and aren't easy to read (or maintain) on a website. For the website I developed verticle 
pedigree charts with east-to-follow links that tie families together. In addition, each 
family name can be traced back to the children of Ralph & Florence DeVan (DeVan 
children) by following the list of names at the bottom of each listed name/family.


Legend:



b:   -  born
d:   -  died
m:   -  preceded by a black square, married; the children of the marriage are listed 
	below the name after m:
nm:  -  preceded by a black square, not married but had children
CA   -  Circa; approximately; give or take a few years
GF   -  Grandfather; may be used in brackets, as [GF].
Gr   -  Great, when used with Grandfather or Grandmother; Great (preferred) or Grand 
        when referring to sisters/brothers of grandparents; Great Uncle or Grand Uncle. 
        For example, (see Bowyer) if Thomas Giddings is a 6th 
        Gr-Grandfather then his brother Solomon is a 7th Gr-Uncle. 
[P]  -  Parents
[GP] -  Grandparents
  -  Indicates a direct ancestry link to the DeVan children. 
        Follow the red arrows to go down the direct line to the DeVan 
        children. All other links are "indirect" ancestors, that is, aunts, uncles, 
	cousins.

⇒   -  Names appearing on right of or below arrow means those people are one 
	generation below the names on left or above the arrow; typical use (in Trace) 
	is: parents ⇒ child + spouse or simply ⇒ child + spouse.

[n]  -  Where n is a number, means the generation of Gr-Grandparents. For example, 
        under "Adams," Edward & Mary (Patchen) Adams [8] means that Edward and 
	Mary Adams are the 8th Gr-Grandparents (and so on down the line) of the children of 
	Ralph & Florence DeVan (DeVan children). This is, in fact, ten generations of 
        separation if parents and grandparents are included. Note that a number in []s 
	is ONLY used for Great-Grandparents. Parents are noted as [P] and 
	grandparents are noted as [GP].

	Do the math. At the 8th great-grandparent level, each of us has 1,024 grandparents 
	AT THAT LEVEL alone. The total of grandparents to that level is 2,044. Go to the 9th 
	great-grandparent level and you add another 2,048 grandparents to your family tree.

Note 1: Children are generally shown under the father's listing in this section. For 
        example, the first listing in this section is Edward Adams, and his and Mary's
	chilcren are listed there. But to see the children of Ganda Adams and Moses Knapp, 
	you must click on Moses Knapp's name. 

        In the rare instance where the father doesn't have a listing (yet), children 
        are listed under the mother's name where the mother is listed under her 
        parents' names (if her parents are known).

Note 2: On this page, DeVan children refers to the children of Ralph & 
        Florence (Giddings) DeVan.

Note 3: First-cousins are children of siblings (sisters/brothers), with the common 
        ancestor being either the maternal or paternal grandparents. Second cousins are 
	the children of first cousins, and so on. Another way to look at it is a person 
	with whom one shares a grandparent (but not a parent) is a first cousin; someone 
	with whom one shares a great-grandparent (but not a grandparent) is a second cousin; 
	and someone with whom one shares a great-great-grandparent (but not a 
        great-grandparent) is a third cousin; and so on. Where it gets confusing is 
        when once removed, twice removed, etc. are used. 

Note 4: "Removed" (as in first cousin, once removed) indicates the degree of 
        separation (generations) there are between the two cousins. 

        Wikipedia summarizes it as: 
        "The remove (once removed, twice removed, etc.) indicates the number of 
        generations, if any, separating the two cousins from each other. The child of 
        one's first cousin is one's first cousin once removed because the one generation 
        separation represents one remove. Oneself and the child are still considered 
        first cousins, as one's grandparent (this child's great-grandparent), is the 
        most recent common ancestor, represents one degree. Equally the child of one's 
        great-aunt or uncle (one's parent's cousin) is one's first cousin once removed 
        because their grandparent (one's own great-grandparent) is the most recent 
        common ancestor." 

	Once removed, twice removed, etc., are best explained with a chart. Here's an 
	example of 3X removed in our own family (see Butterfield below:
	
	Erastus A. DeVan is the son of William R. DeVan, grandson of 3rd Gr-Grandfather 
	Talcott DeVan, and the nephew of 2nd Gr-Grandfather Erastus N. DeVan. The common 
	ancestor is 3rd Gr-Grandfather Talcott Devan, making Erastus A. DeVan a first 
	cousin, three times removed, to the DeVan children. Here it is graphically:

        The Wikipedia article contains an extensive discussion and a couple charts to 
        help simplify the distant cousin confusion.

The parents of Solomon are unknown; however, it's probable that Col. Ransom & Mary are his parents. One ancestral record shows
Col. Ransom & Laura as his parents but Ransom & Laura were married when Solomon was about 19 years old.

Col. Ransom Billings was married to Erastus' sister Laura; Solomon was married to Ruth's sister Sarah.

    7. Laura Devan b: 1849 in New York.
— See the 1850 census image (line 6) for the Henry Devan family.
— In July 1893 the Oneida Post published the names of numerous Civil War veterans from the
Smithfield-Madison, New York area.. The list included six Devan's—Milo, Henry, David, Wallace,
Truman, and Jay. All five of Henry's sons served in and survived the Civil War.
DeVan connection - indirect: Henry Devan "might be" the son of Talcott Devan and the brother of Gr-Gr-Grandfather Erastus N. DeVan.

Note: This information was gleaned from the 1850 census records but has not been confirmed as of 12/28/2010. However, two of Henry's children have the same names (Milo & Laura) as two of his siblings. The 1810 census shows that Talcott had three sons under 10 years old—Milo, Erastus and an unnamed. It's highly probably that Henry was the unknown son. Henry was born within a year of Erastus and he named two of his children—Milo and Laura—after two of Talcott's children.
