    "Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties" - by J.D. Warfield, A.M. ; published in 1905:
    Marriottsville:
    " The late Henry O. Devries was for many years the leading farmer of this section. It was in this village he organized a Farmer's Grange. ... Henry O. Devries, the late President of the School Board of Howard County and long State Grange Agent, was born near Sykesville in 1826. His father, Saib Devries, came from Holland in 1803, where his family was prominent in the wars of Holland. Mrs. Sarah Devries was of the Elder family, who took a large estate upon the border lines of Howard and Carroll Counties. In 1850, Mr. H. O. Devries married Anne E. Shipley, daughter of Judge J.H. Shipley, of Carroll County and grand-niece of Colonel Beale Randall, descendent of Thomas Randall and Hannah Beale, of Annapolis. The Devries estate is a part of the property once held by Colonel John Eager Howard, near Marriottsville. Mr. Devries was Judge of the Orphan's Court.
