General Notes: August 1999: According to Michael B. DeZearn, Franklin moved to Indiana shortly after the Civil War. He spelled his surname as Dezern (that is what appears on two of his son's gravestones, both of which died in their 20's and childless). Franklin bought property in Morgan County, Indiana, and he used the land for logging. He later sold the land using several variations of his surname. When Franklin died, the county clerk asked Franklin's son, William Ivan Adolphus Dezern, to decide on a single spelling of the surname and to swear that that was the only correct spelling. In order to settle Franklin's estate, William Ivan settled on DEZEARN as the correct surname spelling.

Marriage Notes: According to research information from Thomas J. DeZern: Some believe that George married July after she became pregnant with their first child. However, the dates on records do not support this. After the birth of Hubert Cleveland, and before Eddie's birth, George left July. She then moved to Wilkes County, North Carolina from Surry County with her children. Eddie was born in Wilkes County, date unknown. As a result of George's separation with July, family members developed a dislike for him. July never again contacted any Dezern family members. July was struck by a car and died in Concord, North Carolina. Eddie disappeared during the 1930s. It is believed he traveled West or entered the Armed Services.

She was an exceptional wife, mother and homemaker as described at Proverbs 31: 10-31. She learned early in life to do a lot with a little. Jessie spent more than three years as a resident of Village Care of King, N.C., and all in her family wish to express their deep appreciation for the outstanding attention, care and love shown to her by the entire staff there.

Sophronia next married Edward Moline on 8 July 1912 in Clark County, Indiana 32.,57 Edward was born on 16 August 1879 in Jefferson County, Kentucky.32

Marriage Notes: This marriage did not last too long for reasons not known. Fronie married her 3rd husband, Frank M. Young, on 1 February 1915 in Clark Co., IN. Upon checking the 1920 census, Edward Moline (recorded as Edmund) is single and living with his mother Emma and siblings.

Sophronia next married Frank M. Young on 1 February 1915 in Clark County, Indiana 57.,80 Frank was born about 1881 in Kentucky.63

General Notes: The following article was published in the Indianapolis Daily Star, Indianapolis, Indiana, on 22 October 1922:

New Albany, Ind., Oct. 21. - Frank A. Young, slayer of Daniel Dezarn of Louisville, Ky., was indicted by the grand jury on a charge of involuntary manslaughter. He was also indicted on a charge of selling intoxicating liquor.

The killing occurred at the home of Young, Sunday, July 15, following a wedding, where it is charged wine was served in profusion. It was stated at the time that Dezarn, an uncle of the bride, who is Young's step-daughter, became crazed with drink and attacked his sister, Mrs. Young, when her husband shot him.

Noted events in his life were:

• Census: 1 January 1920, Floyd County, Indiana. ED 63, sheet 2A, line 30 - Frank M. Young, head, age 37, born Kentucky, father and mother born Kentucky; Sophonia, wife, age 42, born Kentucky, father and mother born Kentucky; William Tadlock, stepston, age 17; Agnes Tadlock, stepdaughter, age 14, and Ruth Tadlock, stepdaughter, age 13. All children born Kentucky.

• Census: 1 April 1930, Jefferson County, Kentucky. ED 56-119, sheet 16B. line 54 - Frank M. Young, head, age 49, married first at age 31, born Kentucky, father and mother born Kentucky; Sophronia, wife, age 54, married first at age 36, born Kentucky, father and mother born Kentucky; Sophronia Miller, granddaughter, age 8, born Kentucky, father and mother born Kentucky; and Genet Miller, granddaughter, age 6, born Kentucky, father and mother born Kentucky.

540. Herman DeZarn was born on 25 March 1881 in Kentucky,50 died on 19 October 1930 in Jefferson County, Kentucky50 at age 49, and was buried on 21 October 1930 in Portland Cemetery, Jefferson County, Kentucky.50

General Notes: According to her death certificate, Herman had been married and was divorced from her Whitman husband at the time of her death. Her name is recorded on the death certificate as Erman Newman Whitman. Her mother was the informant on the death certificate.

I suspect the reference to Newman on her death certificate was due to her mother's second marriage to Arthur Newman. Therefore, Erman most likely was never married to a Newman, only to a Whitman. However, it's possible that she was married to a James Newman. On Familysearch.org, Kentucky Marriages, 1785 - 1979, lists a marriage for James Newman to Emian Elise Dezarn on 26 June 1906, Jefferson County, Kentucky.

Noted events in her life were:

• Census: 1 January 1920, Jefferson County, Kentucky. ED 167, sheet 4A, line 20 - Erman Whitman, head 1, age 38, married, born Kentucky, father and mother born Kentucky; living with Susan Tadlock, head 2, age 23, divorced.

541. Daniel Boss DeZarn was born on 7 February 1885 in Kentucky56 and died on 15 July 1922 in New Albany, Floyd County, Indiana19 at age 37.

General Notes: Anna's name might be Anna Mary Hickey, as shown on son Harry Arthur Dezarn's annotated birth record included in Kentucky Birth Records, 1852 - 1910. However, in the 1900 Jefferson County, Kentucky census, she is recorded as Anna May Hickey, age 11, in the household of her parents, Thomas H. and Fannie Hickey. In the 1910 census, she is age 21, single, living with her parents in Jefferson County, Kentucky.


The child from this marriage was:

+ 1331 M    i. Harry Arthur DeZarn was born on 16 May 1905 in Jefferson County, Kentucky51,52,83 and died on 29 October 1970 in Lucas County, Ohio83,96 at age 65.

542. Erma Jane "Janie" Dezern was born on 25 August 1870 in Kentucky28 and died on 11 December 1941 in Jefferson County, Kentucky28 at age 71. Another name for Erma was Janie.

General Notes: On her death certificate, she is recorded as Janie Whitlock Mitchell, age 71. Her father is cited as Ruben Dezzern, and her mother is cited as "don't know." It states she was born on 25 August 1870 in Bedford, Indiana. The informant was Myrtle Miller, who is most likely her daughter cited as Mertie A. Hoard in the 1900 census. I believe she was born in Kentucky.

Erma is recorded as age 8 in the 1880 census, meaning she was born about 1871 or 1872, which differs from the date on her death certificate.

She is recorded as age 18 (about 1871) when she married John Richard Hoard on 13 February 1889 in Larue County, Kentucky.

She is recorded as age 36 (about 1871) when she married Burt Whitlock on 10 December 1907 in Taylor County, Kentucky.

Albert, Jr. and his wife, Edna Bernice Kinney (Leasor) raised Donna Gail Meredith (born about 1954), a daughter of Rosa Nolan and William Orval Meredith.

It seems that Albert, Sr. and his wife Maude gave up the Dezern children for adoption, but kept and raised her Nolan children from a previous marriage.

Children listed in 1900 are Hughes B., son, age 3, born January 1897, and No Name, son, age 4/12, born January 1900. Both born Kentucky. James' year of birth 1860 is not correct if he's age 29. According to the 1880 Larue County, Kentucky census, James J. Poteet is age 10, born about 1870. No Name is most likely son Curtis that shows up in later censuses.

The 1900 census (sheet 19B) lists John T. Dezern and Rebecca (Killen) Dezern also includes granddaughter, Hettie Potte (Poteet), age 7, born April 1893. It's strange that Hettie is not included among the 2 living children as mentioned before. Maybe two children is all the census taker saw in Bettie and James' home at the time. So it appears that she is instead the mother of 4, with 3 living.

• Census: 15 April 1910, Jefferson County, Kentucky. The 1910 census lists James Poteet, head, age 40, married 19 years; Bettie, wife, age 33, married 19 years, mother of 8 children, 6 living; Hettie, daughter, age 16; Husnes (Hughes), son, age 13; Otis, son, age 8; Curtis, son, age 5; Naomi, daughter, age 3; and Stanley, son, age 5/12.

• Census: 1 January 1920, Jefferson County, Kentucky. The 1920 census lists James Poteet, head, age 50; Bettie, wife, age 43; Otis, son, age 18; Curtis, son, age 14; Naomi, daughter, age 12; Stanley, son, age 10; Nellis, son, age 7 (this is Nellis H., born 24 April 1912); Marvin, son, age 3 4/12 ?; and Julia, daughter, age 1 7/12 (this is Julia P., born 6 November 1918).

• Census: 1 April 1930, Jefferson County, Kentucky. The 1930 census lists James J. Poteet, head, age 60, married first at age 22; Betty J., wife, age 53, married first at age 14; William O., son, age 28, married, married first at age 25; Stanley M., son, age 20, single; Marvin, son, age 14, single; Julia, daughter, age 11, single; and Betty J., Ferrill, sister of head, age 69, married, married first at age 15. William O., son, age 28, would have been born about 1902, would have been about 8 years old in 1910. Therefore, William O., is most likely Otis as shown in 1910 as age 8, and again in 1920 as age 18. In addition, if Betty J., married at age 14 and was born in 1875, she married James about 1889 instead of about 1891 as deduced from the 1900 census.

General Notes: According to his death certificate, Robert was divorced at the time of his death.

Noted events in his life were:

• Census: 1 April 1930, Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky. ED 56-61, sheet 64A, line 24 - Robert H. Dezern, age 57 (born about 1873), head, married first age 37, occupation was department store night watchman; Attie, wife, age 29 (born about 1901), married first age 19; Oletta, daughter, age 12 (born about 1918); Leman, son, age 3 9/12 (born about 1926); and James, father of head, age 72 (born about 1856), widower; all born Kentucky. Oletta is Attie's daughter from her first marriage to an Unknown Fitzpatrick. James Dezern, a son born to Attie and Robert in 1927, is not listed because he died at birth on 17 July 1927.

Robert married Annie Griffin on 22 May 1901 in Cross County, Arkansas.127 Annie was born on 13 November 1872 in Arkansas24,38,40 and died before 4 July 1920.

Marriage Notes: On their marriage certificate dated 22 May 1901, Robert is recorded as age 29, and Annie is age 28.

General Notes: Annie's birthdate obtained from a family bible according to an email from Donna Cain in March 2003. Although her bible entry cites Annie's year of birth as 1876, the 1880 and 1900 cenuses indicate she was most likely born in 1872.


The child from this marriage was:

+ 1458 M    i. Robert Griffin Dezern was born on 26 November 1902 in Wynne County, Arkansas,40,41,58,63,73,127 died on 18 October 1948 in Memphis, Shelby County, Tennessee58 at age 45, and was buried on 19 October 1948 in Memorial Park Cemetery, Memphis, Shelby County, Tennessee.

Robert next married Mary Birdie Hart, daughter of David Richmond Hart and Mary Elizabeth Obaugh, on 15 October 1910 in Clark County, Arkansas 41.,127 Mary was born on 19 October 1881 in Clark County, Arkansas,26,38,50,127 died on 8 May 1914 in Clark County, Arkansas26,50,128 at age 32, and was buried in May 1914 in Rose Hill Cemetery, Arkadelphia, Clark County, Arkansas.27

Marriage Notes: The marriage licence records the marriage date as both 15 October 1910 and 15 October 1901, and 1910 is most likely correct because Robert is recorded as age 38, while Birdie is age 29. In addition, a copy of their marriage certificate correctly records the marriage date as 15 October 1910.

General Notes: Birdie was the daughter of David Richmond Hart and Mary Elizabeth Obaugh. In the censuses, I found:

Arkansas County Marriages, 1837 - 1957: Birdie Hart married Charles C. Rosher (Rasher) on 28 August 1899, Clark County, Arkansas.

Arkansas County Marriages, 1837 - 1957: As Birdie Rasher, age 29, she married Robert H. Dezern on 15 October 1910 in Clark County, Arkansas.

8 May 1914 - Birdie Dezern died and is buried in the Rose Hill Cemetery, Clark County, Arkansas.

1920 Clark County, Arkansas

ED 64, sheet 9B, line 85
Richmond D. Hart, head, age 66, born Arkansas, father born Georgia, mother born North Carolina
Mary Elizabeth, wife, age 68, born Arkansas, father born Virginia, mother born South Carolina
Joy (or Jay) Thorpe, granddaughter, age 18, single, (speaks French), born Arkansas, father born France, mother born Arkansas (this is mostly Ida J. Roeher in the 1910 census)
Mildred Dezern, grandaughter, age 8, born Arkansas, father born Kentucky, mother born Arkansas (this is Mary Birdie Hart's child with Robert H. Dezern).

August 2011 - In the 1920 Dade County, Florida census, Allie M. Dezern, age 6 (born about 1914), is recorded as a niece in the household of William E. Hanson, head, with his wife, Allie J. Hanson. Allie M. Dezern was born in Arkansas, father born Kentucky, and mother born Arkansas.

In addition, Arkansas Marriages, 1737 - 1944: Allie Hart, age 18 (born about 1890), married Willie Hanson on 12 August 1908 in Clark County, Arkansas. Allie Hart would mostly likely be a daughter of Richmond and Mary Hart as shown in the 1900 census above. Therefore, the Allie M. Dezern in the 1920 Florida census could be Allie Mildred Dezern, daughter of Robert H. Dezern and Mary Birdie Hart Dezern or she might be another daughter because of the age differences as shown in the censuses.

November 2011 - To summarize, I'd earlier found a marriage record on Familysearch.org that indicated that Roy Richard Hutcherson married Mildred Dezern on 8 Sep 1929 in Cross Co. Arkansas, although Mildred's surname was indexed as Degern. I'd also found a birth record for Edward Roy Hutcherson being born 29 Sep 1931 in Bee Co., TX to Roy R. Hutcherson and Mildred Jean Dezern. See Texas Birth Index, 1903 \endash 1997 on Ancestry.com.
Over the past 2 days, I discovered that Edward Roy Hutcherson married Dolores Acosta and they had at least two sons named Chris Roy Hutcherson, born 27 Oct 1955 and Glen R. Hutcherson, born 21 Feb 1958. Son's birthdates obtained from U.S. Public Records.
Glen R. Hutcherson died on 2 Nov 2002 in Metairie, Jefferson Parish (nee County), Louisiana. Below I've pasted two version of his obit that I found yesterday. Note the names I've bolded:
Glen R. Hutcherson on Saturday November 2, 2002 at 6:45 P.M. Son of Dolores Acosta Hutcherson and the late Edward R. Hutcherson. Brother of Chris R. Hutcherson. Grandson of Mrs. Mildred Hutcherson. Also survived by four nieces and nephews.
Age 44 years. A native and lifelong resident of Metairie.
Relatives and friends of the family are invited to attend the Funeral. Religious Services will be held in the Chapel of McMAHON COBURN BRIEDE FUNERAL HOME, 600 Moss Street on Wednesday November 6, 2002 at 1:00 P.M. Interment Greenwood Cemetery. Friends may visit after 9:00 A.M.
Glen R. Hutcherson, a game repairman and Pizza Hut driver, died Saturday of undetermined causes. He was 44. Mr. Hutcherson was a lifelong resident of Metairie. Survivors include his mother, Dolores Acosta Hutcherson; a brother, Chris R. Hutcherson; and his grandmother, Mildred Hutcherson. A funeral will be held Wednesday at 1 p.m. at McMahon-Coburn-Briede Funeral Home, 600 Moss St. Visitation will begin at 9 a.m. Burial will be in Greenwood Cemetery.
From the SSDI, I determined that Edward Roy Hutcherson died 8 Dec 1997 in Metairie, Jefferson Parish (nee County), Louisiana, and his mother Mildred also died there at age 93 on 3 Sep 2004, with the SSDI showing she was born on 6 Jun 1911.
Based on my earlier findings, I'm convinced that Mildred was a only child of Robert Hardin Dezern and Mary Birdie Hart. I'm not sure at this juncture though that Mildred and Allie M. Dezern shown below are the same person.
In searching available public records, it appears that Dolores Acosta Hutcherson was born on 11 Dec 1934, and she's still living, as is her first son, Chris Roy Hutcherson. I believe that both still live in vicinity of Metairie, Jefferson Parish (nee County), Louisiana.
According to the SSDI, Roy Richard Hutcherson, Mildred's husband, was born on 13 Oct 1903, and he died in Nov 1981 in Metairie, Jefferson Parish (nee County), Louisiana. In the 1910 census, Roy (recorded as Ray) is living with his parents in Cleveland Co., Arkansas, and this family is also there in 1920 census. According to these censuses, Roy was born in Louisiana. Other records indicate that Roy was born in 1907 in Arkansas, but that year conflicts with the 1910 and 1920 censuses.
Thus far, I've been unable to locate Roy and Mildred in the 1930 census. On Ancestry.com, I did find a City Directory for New Orleans (1945 \endash 1946) that lists Roy R. and Mildred Hutcherson as living there at the time. Two other City Directories shows them living in Shreveport, Louisiana in 1938 and 1939.


The child from this marriage was:

+ 1459 F    i. Mildred Jean Dezern was born on 6 June 1911 in Clark County, Arkansas73,83,119 and died on 3 September 2004 in Metairie, Jefferson County, Louisiana83 at age 93.

Robert next married Attie Hatfield, daughter of Chester Hatfield and Viola Paris, on 4 July 1920 in Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky 32.,42 Attie was born on 15 April 1900 in Grayson County, Kentucky.38

Marriage Notes: Marriage affidavit states Robert was age 42 and widowed, while Attie was age 22 and divorced at time of marriage. This means Robert was born about 1878, and Attie was born about 1898. These dates conflict with those derived from ages given in census.

The affidavit also states that Robert's father was J. R. Dezern, and the maiden name of mother of Robert was Annie Griffin. This is incorrect as Annie Griffin was Robert's first wife. Attie's father is recorded as Chester Hatfield, deceased, and her mother's maiden name is Viola Paris.

General Notes: Attie was married first to an unknown Fitzpatrick.

In the 1900 Grayson County, Kentucky census, Attie's family is listed as follows:

ED 29, sheet 9B, line 53 - Mary Hatfield, head, age 58, born October 1841 Kentucky, widow, father and mother born Kentucky; Chester F., son, age 24, born September 1875 Kentucky, married 1 year, father and mother born Kentucky; Viola, daughter-in-law (Chester's wife), age 17, born November 1882 Kentucky, married 1 year, mother of 1 child, 1 living (Attie), father and mother born Kentucky; Attie, granddaughter, age 1/12, born April 1900 Kentucky, father and mother born Kentucky; and Maggie N., daughter, age 21, born November 1878 Kentucky, father and mother born Kentucky.

In the 1910 Grayson Co. Kentucky census, Attie's family is listed as follows:

Chess Hatfield, age 34, born KY; wife Viola, age 27 born KY; Atti, daughter, age 10, born KY; Raleigh, son, age 8, born KY; Elva, daughter, age 7, born KY; Lawrence, son, age 4, born KY, Bethel, daughter, age 1; and Mary, age 68, mother of Chess, born KY.

General Notes: Richard Morgan DeZarn was sometimes referred to as Richard "Monroe" DeZarn.

According to Vietta Jones Keith (VKeith3711@aol.com): Following the death of his third wife, Sallie Jones, Richard, who was a very young man at the time of her death, did not remarry again. He lived as a widower for over 50 years. He was known as "Pap" to family members. For many years, Pap lived with his son Bruce DeZarn, the only son from Pap's marriage to Sallie. Bruce was for many years Manchester's only barber. He shined shoes in the barbershop and sat around visiting with people. Bruce was a mild mannered, nice, unassuming man.

In the 1930 Clay Co. census, it appears Richard Morgan Dezarn was recorded twice as R. M. Dezarn. Once in the household of James T. Samples as James' brother-in-law, and again in the household of Berlin Samples as Berlin's uncle.

December 2006 - Determined that Richard Morgan DeZarn had an unmarried relationship with a lady named Maggie Samples. Maggie was born about 1894 in Kentucky. Their relationship occurred about 1915 and produced a female child named Rosa DeZarn.

The Kentucky Birth Index lists a Rosa E. Samples born 25 November 1915 in Clay County, Kentucky. Margie Samples is shown as the mother. Margie is most likely Maggie misspelled.

Following Rosa's birth, Maggie Samples later married Chesley L. Stone. Their marriage most likely took place in Clay County, Kentucky on 22 September 1918 based on the Clay County Marriage Index.

In the 1920 census, Chesley and Maggie Stone are in Knox County, Kentucky. In the 1930 census, the family is in Clay County, Kentucky.

According the the Clay County Marriage Index, 1924 - 1935, Rosa DeZarn, age 16, married Pleas(ant) Turner, age 22, on 4 June 1932. Her parents are shown as Richard Morgan DeZarn and Maggie Samples.

However, his brother Luther's card, signed September 1918, indicates Luther was born 23 March 1877. I suspect they were born definitely in March 1877, since 1877 is more consistent with census data.

Two other sources, the World War I and World War II Draft Registration cards state James was born 28 October 1878 in Clay County, Kentucky. He signed his World War I Draft Registration Card on 17 September 1918 while living in Corbin, Whitley County, Kentucky. His wife at the time was his second wife, Emily "Emma" (Burns Hacker) DeZarn.

Marriage Notes: An email from Woodrow "Woody" DeZarn on 26 June 2006 states that James' first wife, Laura Lovings, died about 1903 when their son William "Willie" B. DeZarn was age 5. The Clay County, Kentucky Marriage Index, page 15, Book III, lists her as Laura Bowlin for her marriage to James DeZarn on 18 November 1897. According to a family bible page of Daisy Ida (Hensley) DeZarn, Laura maiden name was Lovings. She was a daughter of Richard "Dick" Lovings and America Lovings. Therefore, she was most likely married to a Bowling before marrying James DeZarn.

Following Laura death, James married Emily "Emma" Hacker on 9 October 1907. Based on his World War I Draft Registration card, he was still married to Emma on 17 September 1918. According to Woody's email, Emma lived for only 2 years following her marriage to James.

James then married his third wife, Martha (Martin) Hicks about 1920.

General Notes: Based on marriage records, James' wife may have been Laura Bowling instead of Laura Lovings. However, family bible entries from Daisy Ida (Hensley) Dezarn indicate Laura's surname as Lovings.


The child from this marriage was:

+ 1695 M    i. William "Willie" B. DeZarn was born on 17 September 1898 in Kentucky,38,56 died on 13 January 1961 in Indiana40 at age 62, and was buried in January 1961 in Crown Hill Cemetery, Salem, Washington County, Indiana.27

James next married Emily "Emma" Burns, daughter of Granville L. Burns and Nancy Begley, on 9 October 1907 in Clay County, Kentucky 42.,103 Emily was born in May 1865 in Kentucky,24,38 died on 24 November 1920 in Knox County, Kentucky28,49 at age 55, and was buried in November 1920 in Pine Hill Cemetery, Knox County, Kentucky.28

Marriage Notes: Emily's first marriage as Emily Burns was to Joseph Sizemore on 27 May 1883 as shown on page 47 of the Clay County, Kentucky Marriage Index, Book II. We do not know if Joseph died or she divorced him prior to her second marriage to Hogan Hacker.

Her second marriage as Emily Sizemore on 4 December 1886 in Clay County, Kentucky was to Hogan Hacker as shown on page 20 of Book II of the above marriage index. This explains why she is listed Emily Hacker in the 1900 census and is divorced from Hogan Hacker.

Her third marriage as Emily Hacker was to James DeZarn on 9 October 1907 in Clay County, Kentucky, as shown on page 15, Book III of the above marriage index.

General Notes: Research indicates that Emily's maiden name was most likely Burns, and she was a sister to Mary Jane Burns, who married Frank "Debo" DeZarn. This is based on the 1900 Clay County, Kentucky census in which Emily Hacker, born May 1865, age 35, divorced, mother of six children, four living, is listed as a sister-in-law in the household of Frank Dezarn, also known "Debo." She would be his a sister-in-law based on his marriage to Emily's sister, Mary Jane Burns.

According to Emma's death certificate with information provided by her husband, James Dezarn, her parents were Joseph Asher and Mary Helton, which is doubtful.


The child from this marriage was:

+ 1696 F    i. Helen DeZarn was born about 1914 in Kentucky.73

Marriage Notes: Date of marriage to James DeZarn is estimated at 1921 based on date of birth of May 1922 for son Theodore Lincoln "Link" DeZarn.

General Notes: The social security card application for son Robert Franklin Dezarn lists his mother as Martha Martin. Martha's maiden name was most likely Martin, and she was married to a Hicks prior to marrying James W. Dezarn.

Martha's maiden name of Martin is confirmed by the 1920 census where she is in the household of her parents, George and Mary Martin. She also appears in the 1910 census as Martha Hicks with her first husband, Eugene Hicks.

An email from Woodrow "Woody" DeZarn 26 June 2006 states that Martha (Martin) Hicks was the mother of Theodore Lincoln "Link" DeZarn and Robert Franklin. Martha married James DeZarn following the death of his second wife, Emily "Emma" Hacker.

General Notes: According to the 1900 census, Louella was born December 1889, which differs from the date on her headstone.



Louella married Thomas Payton Hounchell, son of Unknown Coell and Sarah Hounchell, on 17 May 1906 in Clay County, Kentucky 42.,103 Thomas was born on 3 August 1878 in Kentucky,26,56 died on 5 November 1934 in Knox County, Kentucky26,50 at age 56, and was buried in November 1934 in Gray, Clouse Cemetery, Knox County, Kentucky.27

General Notes: According to information provided in September 2002 by Cheryl Arline Poe Burnette, Peyton's granddaughter, family tradition indicates Peyton was murdered in his horse barn after transacting a sale of several horses. He was robbed and shot during the attack. His wife, Louella, never remarried following Peyton's death.

Apparently, Peyton was an only child born out of wedlock. It is not known who his parents were. However, in the 1880 Clay County, Kentucky census, he is listed as age 1 living in the household of Preston Jones and Sarah Hounchell Jones. Also, listed is Sarah's sister Martha Houncell, age 25 and single.

According to information received 25 October 2002 from Cheryl Poe Burnette (email), her sister had a copy of her grandmother's bible. Note in the bible indicate that Thomas Peyton Honchell was born 3 August 1878 (apparently the initial "F" is in error). His mother is shown as Sara H. and the father is shown as Unknown Coell. This information seems to indicate that Peyton's mother was Sarah Hounchell, who later married Preston Jones as mention in the 1880 census above.

December 2002 - Information from Cheryl Poe Burnette, Peyton's granddaughter, indicates Peyton was married before his marriage to Louella DeZarn. Lena, who was born 29 June 1900 and died 1948, was a child of this first marriage.

If Lena is correctly recorded, then she was born about 1902, four years before Peyton and Louella were married. Lena may have been someone that Payton and family took in and raised for a period of time.

General Notes: Extract from Army Recruiting News, May 1925:

Completing a hike of 185 miles from his home near Shively, Ky., John L. Dezarn, 25-year-old farmer, strolled smiling into the local Army Recruiting office Wednesday morning and announced his intense craving for a
uniform and a Springfield rifle. Dezarn didn't think much of the walk. He did more work than that on the farm. But he explained that some little time ago he read in The Tcnncssean that the Army needed men. He had saved sufficient money to procure food and lodging on the route, and his arrival Wednesday morning found him in excellent condition. Lieutenant Logan W. Boyd, officer in charge, defined Dezarn as a fine, in-telligent young man - typical of the best of the Southern farmer class. His application was readily accepted and Dezarn will be shipped to Fort McPherson, at Atlanta. In the spring he will go to Camp McClellan, Ala., for special training. The announcement in The Tenncssean to the effect that the 22nd Infantry was in a position to accept qualified applicants was responsible for Dezarn's journey to Nashville and subsequent enlistment in the Army.

740. Hallie E. DeZarn was born on 24 November 1891 in Clay County, Kentucky38,83 and died on 20 March 1984 in Perry County, Kentucky49 at age 92.

General Notes: 1900 - Clay County, Kentucky census lists Halley E. Dezarn, age 8, born November 1891, as a stepdaughter to Elijah Spurlock. Halley's sister, Sopha, is in the same Spurlock household.

1910 - Clay County, Kentucky census lists Hallie Dezarn, age 18, born Kentucky, as stepdaughter of Lige Spurlock. Assuming Lige is short for Elijah, this might be a reference to Elijah Spurlock whose third wife was Elizabeth "Lizzie" Hyden. Before her marriage to Elijah, Lizzie was married to John Dezarn. So it's possible that Hallie was a daughter of John and Lizzie. Therefore, she's referred to as a stepdaughter to Elijah in the 1910 census.

761. Woodson DeZarn was born on 5 November 1891 in Manchester, Clay County, Kentucky,56,76,87 died on 15 June 1960 in Los Angeles County, California87 at age 68, and was buried in June 1960 in Willowview Cemetery, Montgomery County, Ohio.27

General Notes: The California Death Index lists Woodson Dezarn born 5 Nov. 1891 in Kentucky and his mother's maiden name is Lyttle. Woodson died 15 June 1960 in Los Angeles County, California.

Woodson's World War I draft registration card records his birthdate as 5 November 1890 in Manchester, Clay County, Kentucky.

According to the U. S. Army Register of Enlistments, Woodson served at least one enlistment with an enlistment date of 30 July 1912. Another record shows that he served 36 months from 30 July 1912 until 29 July 1915.

Woodson's World War II draft registration card records his birthdate as 5 November 1891 in Manchester, Clay County, Kentucky.

The 1900 Clay County, Kentucky census lists Woodson Dezarn, age 8, born Nov 1891, as a nephew in the household Harvey and Lily White Dezarn along with Harvey's mother and father Caleb and Elizabeth Davidson Dezarn. This implies that Woodson is a child of a brother to Harvey.

In addition, the 1910 Madison County, Kentucky census lists Woodson Dezarn, age 18, as a servant in the household of William M. Webb.

In the 1920 Franklin County, Kentucky census, Woodson Dezarn, age 29, is listed as a prisoner in the Kentucky State Reformatory.

And, the 1930 Montgomery County, Ohio census lists Woodson Dezarn, age 39, as residing in the National Military Home in that county.

An old newspaper article from the Zanesville, Ohio Times Recorder dated 11 April 1950, contains a photo and a marriage annoucement of David J. DeZarn and Iris Finley. The article states that David's parents are Mr. and Mrs. Woodson DeZarn of Dayton.

Lastly, a Woodson Dezarn applied for a Civil War pension on 3 July 1917, having served from Kentucky. This is obviously not the same Woodson Dezarn described above.

Further evidence of Woodson Dezarn is found in the following story describing a gun battle and shootout that occurred on 24 September 1916 at a church in Red Lick, Kentucky, which is in Madison County:

Mrs. Mattie (Hunter) relates a story of her grandfather, Newt Lakes, being killed while trying to stop a gunfight from taking place in the church house yard at the given location on a Sunday morning in 1916.

"Several men got into a gun battle over at the old Red Lick Church while services were going on inside. As one of the men drew his gun to shoot the other, my grandfather apparently grabbed the pistol in an attempt to divert the shot away from the other man, hoping to resolve the problem without anyone getting hurt. The failed attempt however, resulted in grandpa himself being shot. The bullet hit him in the eye and came out the back of his head. They hauled him in a jolt wagon with a team of mules to his house where he died later that evening."

Mattie also states: "I've been told by Mrs. Hunter who was there at the time it took place, that when the shooting broke out members of the congregation were diving out the windows trying to get away from the stray bullets." Mattie was referring to her late husband's (Willard) mother Mrs. Alma Hunter.

The late Mr. Richard Casteel (1901-1983) spoke of this incident to his long time friend Mr. Stanley Adams, who is 75 years of age and is known in his own right for having a brilliant memory.

"Richard was there when the shooting at the old church occurred. He was just a boy, probably around 16 years old, but he remembered it well and told me about it. Of course everybody in this country knew about it back then and they talked about it for years afterward.

The way I've always heard the story told was that Author Webb, Emery McAnaly, Woodson Dezarn, and George Hensley got into a gunfight at the old church house over an incident that occurred the year before concerning a man by the name of Green Davidson. Davidson had been sent to prison some time before for killing a man, but had escaped. Sheriff Doug Young lead a posse, which included Emery McAnaly and his brother Raz (His real name was John), to hunt Davidson down. They found Green and his brother, Harrison, rabbit hunting on the racetrack ridge near Needmore.

They were both carrying shotguns and elected to shoot it out rather than surrender. Shortly after the shooting started, one of the men in the posses shot Green Davidson square through with a 30-40 caliber Craig high powered rifle and another wounded his brother Harrison with a shotgun blast, but not bad enough to put him down. Green, probably realizing that his wound was fatal was said to have turned to his brother told him to run off before they killed him too and that's what he did. Emery McAnaly was said to have walked up and shot Davidson several time after he had already been gunned down.

There was a grudge between these men over that incident which occurred in the fall of 1916. The gunfight at the old church took place the following year. Anyway, when the smoke cleared, McAnaly lay dead in the church house yard and Newt Lakes, who got shot trying to break the fight up, died later that evening at his house.

Matt Lake also knew about this incident. Matt is another well known and well respected member of the Red Lick community. "The gun battle at the old church took place the 24th of September in 1916. After Davidson ran off from the penitentiary, a $100 reward was offered for his capture, Deputy Doug Young and his brother George, Will Layer, and the McAnaly brothers Emery and Raz, went after Davidson and caught up with him in the Crane fork of the Lonesome Hollow. Harrison Davidson, Green's brother, was with him. Green told his brother to run away and it's probably a good thing he did or he may have been killed as well. I've always heard those McAnaly boys shot Davidson to pieces after he was already dead."

Matt was eight year old when the gun battle took place. "As a boy, I remember seeing McAnaly (Emery) that morning, he had just gotten himself a haircut and apparently somebody had warned him that those boys were going to be at the old church that day, but he was afraid that people would think he was a coward if he didn't go.

They may have been having revival at the church. There was a meeting of some type going on, maybe just a regular Sunday morning service. There wasn't many forms of entertainment in those days and a lot of folk just met up outside of churches to have something to do. They would listen to the singing coming from inside the church or just socialize. A bunch of 'em met up and got into a shootout that day. Emery McAnaly was killed and so was Newt Lakes, trying to stop it.

Matt was born on the 25 of August in 1909, "My ancestors came from the country of Wales. Our name is Lake from the old country although most of our neighbors calls us Lakes. The "s" was added by the Americans after the family name was established. My great-great grandfather, Jonathon Hunter, owned slaves. We wore the grey. We were Rebels."

Matt confirms that the old church house was a log structure. The old church had reportedly burned sometime in the early 1900s. Matt says that this is incorrect. "I don't recall them ever having service after the gun battle took place. The old building just naturally deteriorated. The roof fell in and the whole thing finally just rotted away. By the 1930s there was nothing left." Ruth, Matt's wife, says "The christian people just wondered away after the killing took place. They never met there again."

Miss Kates explains "As small children, we visited Aunt Lizzie (As she was commonly called) after she moved to Red Lick in 1929. The remains of the old church sat upon the ridge, just above where we turned to go to Aunt Liza's house. There were a few graves in the cemetery below the church house. The roof of the old church house had already fallen in. Only part of the old logs remained, but they were mostly just laying in a piled up heap, rotting away."

Miss Barret had attended the old church as a small child. "About all I can remember from actually being there is that there wasn't any music. The congregation would sing, but I'm about certain that there was no piano or musical instrument of any type. Of course there was the shootout. Our grandfather, Newt Lakes, was killed trying to stop it. Arthur Webb killed Emery McAnaly that day and Woodson Dezarn killed grandpa. Both men were hauled out in jolt wagons, pulled by a team. McAnaly was killed right there in the church house yard, but grandpa didn't die until later that evening at home.

John McAnaly was crossing the ford of the creek right after it happened, hauling his dead boy, Emery home in a wagon when he met Kate Webb, Arthur's wife, headed to church. He just told her not to go around there, that something bad had happened." Something bad indeed had happened that morning. There wasn't much for people to do in those days out in the country and it was too far to town. This country carried the name of being rough. Red Lick was known for its moonshining and whiskey making. It wasn't uncommon for men to pack their pistols under their coats even when they went to church. There was several men packing on the morning the gunfight at the Red Lick Baptist Church took place.

Charlie Abney tells the story as he has heard it and learned it over the years and from knowing some of the men that were actually envolved in it. "It really all started sometime before with a man by the name of Green Davidson. Davidson had been sent to the penitentiary for killing a man, but escaped before serving his term out. He had a $500 reward on him. Sheriff Doug Young and several fellows went after him. Emery McAnaly and his brother, the one they called Raz, was in the bunch. They caught up with Davidson somewhere over in that country between the Lonesome Hollow and Needmoor on one of those Tater Knobs.

Davidson may have had his brother with him, but Green was the only one that got killed. It's been told that Emery McAnaly walked up and shot Davidson's brains out after he'd already been gunned down." Most have heard that those "who live by the sword, shall die by the sword." Ironically, Emery McAnaly may very well have made his peace with God the very morning that he was killed. Charlie elaborates further. "Jim Stevenson was courting Tank Webb's sister. He was going to see her when he met up with Emery that morning. The two men walked to the forks of the road together. Emery told Jim that he was going to join the church that morning, so he took the fork that led to the church and Jim went on down the road to the Webb's house.

Old Tank was known for being a trouble maker. When Jim mentioned that McAnaly was heading to church, Tank sent word to Authur Webb and some of them boys that he knew had a grudge against Emery. Tank told 'em that this was the time to get him, that they could sneak up on him and that he might not have his gun on him by him going to church. Emery had him a fresh hair cut and was wearing a white shirt. He wasn't carrying a gun, but when them boys started showing up and he realized what was happening, he started trying to borrow one. Fiddler Jim Lamb had a single action .45, but he wouldn't let Emery have it. He finally managed to get a little .32 hex barrel pistol off of Henry Lamb, but there was too many of 'em and they were packing heavy. Authur Webb had a .38 while Woodson Dezarn and George Hensley both had .45's. They ambushed him.

Old man Newt Lakes had partially raised Woodson and Emery, but they had a falling out between them. Old Newt saw what was happening and tried to stop them, but his words fell on deaf ears. Dezarn ran right up in his face and said "I'll get you out of the way" and killed him. That's when the guns went to blazen. After Ole' Newt fell, Emery gutshot Dezarn, but it didn't kill him. Dezarn ran and jumped the stiles trying to get away from McAnaly. Authur Webb had hid behind a pine, while George Hensley was hiding behind the church. Author shot Emery several times in the back. He still wasn't down when he rounded the church house where Hensley was waiting. Hensley shot him right through the jaw. Then the strangest of all things happened. Emery McAnaly ran and fell dead right across Green Davidson's grave! The grave of the man that Emery McAnaly had hunted down the year before. The grave of the man that Emery McAnaly had shot after he had already been gunned down, probably already dead.

Most people will tell you that it was Authur Webb that killed Emery McAnaly. George Hensley was the man that actually fired the killing shot, but he would have probably died anyway from all those bullets he took in the back from Webb. All in all, Emery McAnaly was mortally wounded right there in the church house yard that day. Woodson Dezarn had been gutshot. Old Newt Lakes died at 11:00 that night at his house and a Hunter fellow, who just happened to be at church that day and had nothing to do with it, had taken a stray bullet in the leg. Some say the part of Dezarn killing old man Newt was an accident, that Newt jerked the gun away from Dezarn and it went off. Either way, old Newt was wound up dead and Dezarn ended up going to the pen. George Hensley left the state, ran off to Arkansas. Authur Webb managed somehow to get out of it altogether.

That was the end of the old church. They never held services there again and it would probably have been impossible to have gotten a preacher even if they had wanted too. By the 1930s, the roof had fell in and the walls were just laying in a heap. Ebb Lakes burnt it for firewood.

These were the events that brought to an end "The Church of the Red Lick Fork of Station Camp...." A church that had stood for a hundred and fifteen years...Blood was spilled on hallowed ground that day. Fear and bad memories would haunt the hearts of all who bore witness and the already notorious reputation of Bloody Red Lick would become legendary.

Even the modern day circuit riders (traveling evangelist) shunned such places. For even in the most remote of the rural areas, this type of news spread like wildfire and people were slow to forget. Only the infinite knowledge of God himself and the healing hands of time can cover such scars, chase away such ghosts of the past, and heal such wounds. After that day, there was no Red Lick Baptist Church until 34 years later.

General Notes: Obtained from Biennieal Report by Industial Commission of Virginia:
Roy Dezearn
vs.
Stonega & Coke Co. and
Mabyland Casualty Co.
May 15, 1919.
No. 104.
Dependency; computation.
Memorandum : It was admitted that Roy Dezearn was killed on February 7, 1919, as a result of an accident arising out of and in the course of his employment with the defendant. The only question to be decided was whether John Dezearn, father of the deceased, was dependent.
John Dezearn, the father, is illiterate, and unable to more than small wages. In fact, his wages at the time of his son's death were 12 cents per hour. The evidence abundantly showed that the deceased furnished about $10.00 per week toward the support of his family. This set of facts clearly established that the claimant was a partial dependant upon Roy Dezearn. The average weekly wage of the deceased was $25.00, and, accordingly, the claimant was entitled to compensation at the rate of 10/25 of $10.00 per week, or $4.00 per week.
Award: The defendants will pay to the claimant the sum of $4.00 per week for a period of 300 weeks beginning February 7, 1919, out of which sum $50.00 at the rate of $2.00 per week will be paid to counsel for the claimant. The defendant will pay funeral expenses not exceeding the sum of $100.00.

Note: This description is not totally accurate regarding three German brothers.

Stewart Farm
Maxine L. Stewart
In the nineteenth century, three Dezern brothers immigrated from their native Germany to North Carolina. They then decided to move west across the mountains to Tennessee. One brother, James Clancy Dezern, established a farm of just over 200 acres in Haywood County in 1882. Married to Josephine McCoy, the Dezerns had seven children. The family raised cotton, cattle and hogs. Their daughter Hattie became the owner of the farm in 1930. Along with her husband, Floyd Stewart, they raised cotton, cows and corn on the farm. The couple had five children and their son, Floyd Dezern "Pete" Stewart became the third generation to own the farm. After Pete's death, his wife, Maxine Stewart became the owner. Today, the farm is pastureland and cattle and rowcrops including cotton. The land is worked by Pete and Maxine's son, Floyd Stewart, Jr. and Bradley Booth, the stepgrandson of Maxine. The Stewart Farm is one of twelve certified Century Farms in Haywood County.
