Devereaux, Patrick, a prosperous farmer of Hartland, was born in County Wexford, Ireland, in 1831, a son of Margaret and John Devereaux. His father died in Ireland. He and his mother immigrated to America in 1852, landing at Savannah, Ga., whence they came to New York State, settling first in Utica, thence to Lockport, where he engaged in farming. In the spring of 1867 he came to Hartland and purchased the farm he now owns, which he cleared and improved. In July, 1878, he married Bridget Kinney, daughter of Thomas and Anne Kinney, also natives of Ireland and who immigrated to Lockport in 1873. Mr. and Mrs. Devereaux have six children: Margaret A., born in June, 1880; Georgiana, born in March, 1882; John, born in September, 1883: Mary, born in January, 1885; Thomas, born in December, 1887, and Kittie, born in July, 1890. They are all at home, and are a refined and courteous family. They are members of the Catholic church at Hartland. Mr. Devereaux is a practical farmer, and is proud of the fact that he owes no man a dollar.
