Biography of David Devore
Arizona Biographies





DAVID DEVORE, Chairman of the Board, is a native of the Blue Grass State, having been born in Grayson, Kentucky, in 1856, but he moved with his parents to Kansas at an early age, and was educated in the public schools of that State. His parents, Robert C. and Sarah Jane Hayes Devore, were pioneers of Kentucky. David Devore came to Arizona forty years ago, and, taking the first opening which presented itself, was employed hauling lumber from Prescott to Camp Verde to build the post from which soldiers guarded the pioneers from the Apache Indians. In 1880 he moved to Globe and has been a citizen of Gila since. David Devore has always taken a prominent part in the political life of the State, and was one of the strongest supporters of Governor Hunt and a close associate of the present executive for a number of years. He has also displayed an interest in the social and civic life of the community. Mr. Devore was a member of the Board of Education for a number of years, and Road Supervisor for eight years. He has served nine years as supervisor, having been elected twice previous to the present term, and both times he received the greatest number of votes and drew the long term. He has acted as Chairman three years, and holds that place at present.
