DuVall April 9, 1851 and went at once to housekeeping in the house in which she died which was at the time the most northerly house on that street except one. Her husband was a long while in the carpet and wall paper business on South Illinois street with the father of WH Roll and died July 26, 1872 aged 48 years. Of the family, five children survive: Charles E.
