About James Thomas (Tom) Van Deventer

His second marriage occurred while fourth child was on the way; it is said that sons Win and Ab insisted on their father getting married and accompanied them the courthouse because they did not trust him to get married.

He was a well to do farmer in Greene co.Indian in his early years; but later he by what I am told drank it all up. This was related to me by Mandie (Vandeventer) Crites daughter of Win.

Another ads that "I would add that I have heard this story also, from a niece of Minnie Alice Barker. Tom seemed to be quite an influencial farmer, but in his later years he drank quite heavily."
