CHARLES & HANNAH DEVLIN
Return to Family Index
THE STORY AS I KNOW IT
Charles Devlin was born about 1785, give or take 5 years
Re the 1830 Census, page 148, roll M19-12. According to
his daughter's reports in later census' he was born in Pennsylvania.
However we have no direct information about that. Most
information I have seen strongly suggests that Devlin is an Irish name.
Hannah was born about 1785,
the 1870 Pa Census gave the info that she was born in Delaware but that
both her parents were foreign born. So far we have no further
information on her family.
He married Hannah, last
name unknown, about 1822. We do not know whether in Pennsylvania
or Delaware. However, at the time of the 1830 Census the Devlin
lived in Mill Creek Hundred,
New Castle County,
Delaware. By that time they had 3 sons and one
They continued on the farm in Mill Creek Hundred and on the 1840 Delaware Census roll 33, page 266,
they either have another son listed as under 10 and the youngest list
in 1830 as under 5 had died, or (I believe) there was a reporting
mistake and the son listed was between 10-15.
Charles Devlin died between
1840 and 1850. At least he is not on the 1850 census and Hannah is living with her newly
wedded daughter Martha Ann Missimer.
With them is son David Devlin,
age 23. We believe the children of Charles and Hannah Devlin were:
son born c 1820-1822
son born 1823-1825
David Devlin born c 1827
Martha Ann Devlin, born 1830, died 1909, wed William Missimer (known from the Missimer Bible Records published by John B. Perry, philadelphia PA 1851.)
