Phoebe Chicken is misspelled. She is my Great-Great Grandmother. After her husband, James William DeVaney was accidentally killed on a buffalo hunt in western Kansas, she remarried a German immigrant, Charles Steffen. He spoke only broken English. Her eldest daughter, Annie DeVaney, was my Great Grandmother, was sent to live with relatives because Charles Steffen was not keen on children. On the bright side, Annie DeVaney was able to complete her high school education and was later a certified teacher.
