Need help in locating information on the Deavers family, they lived in southern Missiouri and northern Arkansas : South Fork and Camp in Fulton County. 1st name: William Fred or Fred William, his son Fred Miles, Delbert, daughter Alice. Their mother is Fannie Lee Murphy. There was a family fued, as well as the death of William Fred and the family split. No one seems to have any information on William Fred Deavers. There has been rumor that he moved to Kansas shortly before he died leaving Fannie and children in Arkanasas. Does anyone have any clue about this person? Thank you for your help . Von,  Deavers-33

Thank you ever so much, not knowing the correct spelling of his name I never found the census information before.

Now if I can find someone that know what split the family apart, I will be a happy camper.

Maybe if one or more of the nieces or nephews is still around, they might be able to help solve the puzzle. Jane born 1920, Alice b 1918, John b 1916, Dlebert b 1914.

Delbert Deavers Nephew M 6 Missouri
John Deavers Nephew M 4 Missouri
Alice Deavers Niece F 2 Missouri
Jane Deavers Niece F 0 Missouri
Alice is the only one living and she was so young that she doesn't remember. I don't think anyone who knew for sure about the family split is still alive to tell the story. I have been unable to locate any family Bibles, Diaries, or anything along that line, that's how bad the split was. It's like they tried to complete wipe William Deavers out of family history. I think they won. LOL!

Maybe niece in 1920 US Census. familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2CCQ-M8X

Maybe niece in 1920 US Census. familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M882-3W9

Mabe nephew in 1920 Census. familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:K73D-BCD

Did not find the Delbert Deaver born MO as an adult.

There is more than one individual to pick from in trying to guess which location in MO they were born.
