History of Lincoln County, Missouri (Chicago: Goodspeed Publishing Co., 1888) page 532.

Frederick DUVEL was born in Hanover, Germany, February 29, 1840, and is a son of Henry and Wilhelmina (WESTFALL) DUVEL, and at the age of twelve years came with his parents to America, locating in Lincoln County, Mo., in 1852. The mother died in Warren County, Mo., in 1852, while on the way here, and the father died about two years later. Thus Frederick was left to fight his own way in the world. He worked for wages during the summer time, and in the winter attended school. He continued to work in this manner until twenty years of age, when he started out for himself as an independent farmer, and has succeeded well in his undertaking, being now the owner of 500 acres of land, and is a member of the merchandise firm of Mason, Duvel & Co., of Olney. Emma F. OWINGS became his wife December 27, 1850. She was born in Kentucky, and when a child was brought to Missouri. They became the parents of eight children, only seven of whom are living, and are members of the missionary Baptist Church. Mr. DUVEL’s father was a carpenter and cabinet-maker by trade. When twenty-three years old, he first married Hannah ALBERT, who died at the age of thirty-five years, leaving five children, and he afterward married Miss WESTFALL, and by her became the father of four sons and two daughters.
