Devine/Devane from Ireland

Ellen Devine (born 1825) married Patrick O'Brien (born 1802)in Dingle, County Kerry in 1844. They had two sons that I know of, supposedly born in County Kerry -- Patrick in 1844 and Thomas in 1847. Patrick (2) is my husband's gg grandfather and he married Catherine (Kate) Mahoney in 1866 in Norwich, Connecticut -- and around 1870's settled near Melrose, Iowa (aka Iowa's Little Ireland) and had 11 children. We're told the Devine name was actually Devane in Ireland ... would like to find out how/when they came to America and then moved on to Midwest ... anyone out there with ties to Patrick & Ellen Devine O'Brien of County Kerry? Good hunting & God Bless!

my husband's grandmother was a Devine from Co. Kerry, and they also say the name was Devane in Ireland. I know she spent time in CT after coming to the US around 1900-ish (she came to San Francisco in 1902, around the Horn--not sure if that date was when she arrived or when she left, though), and I believe a sister lived there. I don't have much detail, but here goes:

I have a Thomas Devine who was born in Ireland, Nov. 1847. He came to the U.S. abt. 1863. Ended up in Iowa married to a Sarah McGinnis Devine. Anyone with further info on this family...it would be greatly appreciated.

Surnames: O'Daimhin
O'Daimhin would have been pronounced O'Devin according to Gaelic pronunciation. eg The female name Nieve, was spelt Nimh. So when Brits took over and recorded subjects names for the Queen, it would have been a simple matter to drop the Gaelic O and spell Daimhin as it sounded to anglo-saxons, ie.Devin or Devine
