This find is one of those maybe/potentially/ooo keep on the back burner finds. To my knowledge my husband’s Deyoe line always uses that final e and never capitalizes the y. However that is not to say one stray person didn’t simply change things up for whatever reason!
Muhlenberg DeYoe’s obituary ran as a Special to the New York Times on18 November 1933. It has a Ramsey, NJ dateline which is where – for no obvious reason - my husband’s grandfather (Morgan G Deyoe) ended up with his mother and brothers, presumably after his father, Daniel, passed away. That was the first of I had hear of Deyoes being in
but I still could not connect the
two branches. In fact, I still can not with any certainty. New Jersey
His obituary reads:
Muhlenberg B. DeYoe
Special to the New York Times
I do not know of any direct relation but like I said, similarities warrant a back burner on this one.
Sunday’s Obituary is a genealogical prompt of GeneaBloggers.
