Three of John DeVane s sons served as Officers in the Revolution: Captain John DeVane, Jr., Lieutenant Thomas DeVane and Captain James DeVane. John DeVane and his family were members of Saint James Episcopal Church, where he served on the Vestry for a number of years.

In the Revolution, John served as a Major in the New Hanover County Militia. He also rendered support freely in the way of supplies.
