Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 362, Monon Township, White County, Indiana.

"JAMES M. DeVAULT was born in Fayette County, Ohio, January 24, 1842, and is a son of NICHOLAS and LAVINA (KILGORE) DeVAULT. His father removed to Madison County, Ohio, when he was eight years old. JAMES attended school until he was about fifteen years of age, when he worked for himself until 1861, when he enlisted in the Eighty-sixth Ohio Infantry for three months; he was honorably discharged, resumed work at home, and in July, 1863, re-enlisted in the Tenth Ohio Cavalry; he was in the battle of Shelbyville, under GEN. KILPATRICK, and with GEN. SHERMAN from Atlanta to the sea. He was finally discharged July 21, 1865, and on February 22, 1866, was married to DEBORAH RIGHTSEL, daughter of JOHN and JANE (ORCUTT) RIGHTSEL, by whom he had seven children - JOSEPHINE E., ULYSSES GRANT, LAURA R., LOUIS and LERRY (twins), JENNIE and FRANK E. In 1866, MR. DeVAULT came to this township and purchased sixty acres of wild land in Section 2, which is now well improved. MR. DeVAULT is an Odd Fellow. His daughter, JOSEPHINE, is a teacher in Beaver Township, Pulaski County."
