You can find a short but very helpful item in Volume 4, page 549 of the
Funk and Wagnalls Jewish Encyclopedia, published some 85-90 years ago .
It is under "Devenishki"

My family came >from there originally, and took the family name of
Devenishky when they moved on to other villages (Eisheshok and
Butrimantz). When they came to the U.S. at the turn of the century some
took the name of Devins. Others became Alpert
