Deveney & White Memorials

Headstones, Gravestones, Dorchester, MAIn 1946 there wasn’t a Southeast Expressway.  The Streetcars ran on Neponset Avenue and turned around at the circle.  On Gallivan Blvd., where McDonalds and CVS are now, The Purple Cow and Dutchland Farms once stood.  On the other side of the street was E.P. Deveney & Sons Granite Co.

The Deveney family history in the Granite industry dates back to the time of the Quincy Quarries at the turn of the last century, 1898.  At that time, Quincy was the granite capital of the world.  My great-grandfather, Edward P. Deveney Sr. and his six brothers started a wholesale granite business, Deveney Bros., on Dysart St. in Quincy, creating beautiful, sought after memorials out of the finest Quincy granites, shipping them to New York and the Midwest.

Long after the quarries closed, my great-grandfather and my grandfather, Edward P. Deveney Jr., purchased some land that was, at the time, just an empty field and moved the business from Quincy to Dorchester in 1946, where it stands to this day on Gallivan Boulevard.

My father, Gerard L. Deveney, along with his brother-in-law, Walter White, eventually purchased the business from my grandfather in the late 1970s, establishing it as Deveney & White.
