Devine settled the South Loup Valley Ranch, (The Devine Ranch) in the 1880s. He was a long time stockman and a substantial farmer and leader in the community. John A. Devine has pioneer honors in Custer County and his character was the positive expression of a strong, loyal, and noble nature. John A. Devine made his life count for good in all of its relationships, and helped in the civic and industrial development, and building of Custer County, Nebraska. Frank Bounce Devine served his country with the US Navy from January of 1942, until April 1946 serving on the USS West Virginia. Later the family moved to Oconto, Nebraska. In 1950 he was employed at the Farmers Bank of Oconto for over 40 years, serving as President from 1975-1983. James V. Devine once said the financial interest of any growing community are among the most important, because upon this rests the opportunity for progress or the probability of retrogression. James V. Devine was also devoted to the family farm. In 1889, they located the farmstead near Oconto and settled there. He appreciated the dignity of labor, the value of industry, and the necessity of honesty and integrity. Today the Devine Ranch still exists and is very well maintained by James T. Devine from Colorado and Frank Devine from Arizona who lease the ranch to a tenant that utilizes it. The ranch represents the care and conservation that James T. Devine has provided it over the years of his tenure. Excerpts from the Custer County Historical Society, in Broken Bow, Nebraska. Address:Oconto, NE 68860 County:Custer
