Barbara (DeVaullt) Layne first appears in the historical records when she married John Layne in Washington County, Virginia on 31 July 1789. John and Barbara Layne moved to Marion County, Tennessee where the couple raised a family. John Layne died prior to the 1850 census in Marion County and Barbara then moved to Grundy County, Tennessee to live with one of her children. She appears in both the 1850 and 1860 census of Grundy Co, TN.
DNA testing is indicating that Barbara (Devault) Layne shares a close family relationship with Mary (Devault) Six who married John Six who were also married in Washington Co, VA, with Jacob Devault who filed Land claims in Washington Co, TN which now fall into Scott Co, VA and with David Devault who married Susanna (Guest) Devault in Grainger Co, TN in 1800 with John Six shown on the marriage record. DNA indicates that these Devault were most likely siblings.

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Elizabeth by comparing test results with other carriers of her mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Elizabeth:
DeVault-152 and DeVault-255 appear to represent the same person because: Birth, Death, marriage information all match the Barbara DeVault who married John Layne in Washington Co, VA. These two profiles also match DeVault-5 for the same reasons.
