Devins Reunion History:
"Each year the Devins family, one of the earliest families to settle in Ontario, gather together to hold a reunion. The original settlers came to Canada in the 1790's by way of the Genesse Valley in New York State. Arriving in Upper Canada, they settled near the Don River on lot 20, Concession Six of York County."
Toronto Newspaper, 1961.

Devins Family History:
The Devins book committee put together a book called, Abraham Devins and his descendants in Canada and the United States, that was published in 1988. In the introduction, it states that the Devins family came from the United States 200 years ago and landed in York county in 1793. Many families were encouraged to submit information about their families. However, many families were left out. Since the publication of this book, we have learned more about the Devins family.

More Family History:
You need more information about the Devins family? Well, going to the reunon is a great place for you to find out more. Also, in the future the idea of creating a website that focuses just on the Devins history is an idea I would love to be involved in. Please e-mail me if you have any suggestions.
