General Notes: January 2005 - I suspect that George F. DeZarn (son of George Washington Dezern) is the husband of Ollie May Comley.

In the 1920 census, George F. Dezarn, age 23, is an inmate at the Eddyville Work Farm in Lyon County, KY.

By the 1930 census, Ollie (Comley) Dezern, head, age 22, married first at age 15, is living in Jefferson County, KY with daughters Mildred, age 6, (born 13 April 1924 in Nelson County, KY) and Martha Evelyn, age 3 8/12 (born 11 July 1926 in Nelson County, KY), and sister Pearl Comley, age 21, single. Ollie married about 1923, most likely following George's release from the work farm.

Also in the 1930 census, George, age 38, is in Nelson County, KY in the household of James R. Constant and his wife Mayme (Dezern) Constant.

World War I draft card records record a George Francis Dezarn, born 15 June 1894, Taylor County, Kentucky. This might be George F. Dezern, although the birthdate is different from other records. The draft card record also states he is in jail for having intercouse with a female under age of consent. He signed the draft card on 5 June 1917. This seems to support his being an inmate at the Eddyville Work Farm, Lyon County, Kentucky in the 1920 census.

James Leon Dezern was born 24 May 1916 in Jefferson County, Kentucky
to Albert Dezern and Anna Elizabeth Myers. There is evidence that his
mother later remarried, taking the surname of Hanners. There is an
Albert H. Dezern buried (section C, grave 1365) in the Rock Island
County National Cemetery, Rock Island, Illinois,

James had two sisters named Elise and Mattie Lee and a brother named
William Clarence.

At some point following James's birth, he and his siblings were given by their father to a Bapist Children's Home in an unspecified location in Kentucky.

James was adopted into a Smith family. For some period of time, James
used Smith as his surname. In later life, he apparently reverted to using
his given surname of Dezern.

Later in his life, James married a lady whose first name was Elaine.
James and Elaine had a daughter named Valerie Rane Smith who
was born 14 April 1941.

James and Elaine later divorced and she remarried to Terry J. LaVerne.
At the time of this marriage, Elaine and Terry probably lived in Portland,
Oregon or its vicinity.

Dezern died 29 March 1983 in Oroville, Butte County, California, ZIP code
95965. His SSN of 535-28-4363 was issued in the state of Washington. One
might consider ordering a copy of his original SSN application since it may
provide some clues regarding his whereabout at the time of the request.

The 1930 Marshall Co. KY census lists:

Madge, wife, age 17, married age 15

They are living next door to William's father James H. "Bud" Dezarn, age 56, and Emma Foster Dezarn, age 53.

So, it appears William Edison Dezern married Madge Smith about 1928.

Noted events in his life were:

• Census: 15 April 1930, Marshall County, Kentucky. ED 79-9, sheet 2A, line 23 - James H. Deserne, head, age 56, married at age 24; Emma, wife, age 53, married at age 21. Both born Kentucky. Living next door is son, William E. Dezern and his wife Madge (Smith).

General Notes: Robert's age on 22 July 1930 was 27 as shown on the bond for marriage license. This differs from his age being 34 on 1 April 1930 in the census.

In the 1920 census, he is recorded as age 17, which agree with his being age 27 on his marriage bond on 22 July 1930. He was most likely born about 1903.

The 1910, 1920, and 1930 censuses show Robert had a connection to Mollie V. Griffin Garrett's family in Wynne, Cross County, Arkansas.

The 1900 census for Wynne, Cross County, Arkansas records Mollie's family as:

ED 28, sheet 31A, line 17 - George Griffin, head, age 60, born July 1839, married 39 years, born Georgia, father and mother born Georgia; Mary E. Griffin, wife, age 57, born April 1843, married 39 years, mother of 12 children, 5 living, born Tennessee, father and mother born Tennessee; Annie, daughter, age 27, born November 1872 Arkansas; Mollie, daughter, age 24, born November 1875 Arkansas; Mattie, daughter, age 22, born April 1878 Arkansas; Lee, son, age 15, born June 1884 Arkansas; and Hugh, son, age 13, born August 1886 Arkansas.

In the 1880 census, the family of George W. Griffin, including daughter Mollie V. (age 5), are living in Searcy, Cross County, Arkansas.

He enlisted in Captain Martin's Company, Fifth Arkansas Regiment, Trans-Mississippi Department, and was in the battles of Greenville, Prairie Grove, Jenkin's Ferry and Pleasant Hill, and also in a number of minor engagements, serving in the cavalry for some time. After his return from the war he farmed for one year, then opened the shop at the old stand continuing there until the spring of 1882, when he moved to the village of Vanndale and engaged in business there. Mr. Griffin was elected to the office of county treasurer, and served two terms by re-election. In 1861 he was married to Miss Mary E. Snowden. . . . . . .

According to the Arkansas Death Index, 1914 - 1950, Mollie Garrett died in Cross County, Arkansas on 8 November 1932.

The index for Masonic Death Records from Grand Lodge of Arkansas, 1941 - 1990, lists Robert Griffin Dezern. Compiled by Desmond Walls Allen, Copyright 1999

April 2009 - Email from Donna Cain states that her grandfather's family bible cites Robert G. Dezern's birthdate as 26 November 1903. However, Tennessee Death Records, 1914 - 1955 records his date of birth as 26 November 1902.

Noted events in his life were:

• Census: 15 April 1910, Cross County, Arkansas. ED 51, household 288/294, line 76 - Robert G. Dezern, grandson, age 7, born Arkansas, father born U.S.A., mother born Arkansas, is recorded in the household of Mary E. Griffin, head, age 68, widow, born Tennessee, father and mother born Tennessee; and Mollie V. Griffin, daughter, age 31, single, born Arkansas, father born Alabama, mother born Tennessee.

• Census: 1 January 1920, Cross County, Arkansas. ED 86, sheet 1B, line 82 - Robert Dezern, age 17, is recorded as nephew-in-law in the household of James and Mollie Garrett. His entry is lined out and annotated as "out of town."

• Census: 1 April 1930, Cross County, Arkansas. ED 19-16, sheet 1B, line 51 - Robert Dezern, white male, age 34, single, boarder in household of Mollie V. Garrett, born Arkansas, father and mother born Arkansas, occupation was fireman on Sierra Railroad. He has not served in any war. Mollie is age 57, widow, married first at age 30.

Marriage Notes: Bond for marriage license was taken out on 22 July 1930. Robert's age is recorded as 27, and Catherine's is 24. Robert's residence is Wynne, Cross County, Arkansas, and Catherine's is Memphis, Shelby County, Tennessee.

General Notes: Catherine Rose, age 23, born Tennessee, divorced, married first at age 20, is living with her father, Thomas E. Rose, in the 1930 census for Memphis, Shelby County, Tennessee.

1459. 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.

General Notes: 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.

Mildred married Roy Richard Hutcherson on 8 September 1929 in Cross County, Arkansas.127 Roy was born on 13 October 1903 in Louisiana73,83,127 and died in November 1981 in Metairie, Jefferson County, Louisiana83 at age 78.

Marriage Notes: The marriage record image for Roy and Mildred I found on Familysearch.org indicates that Roy was age 25 and Mildred was age 19. Mildred is recorded as a resident of Jackson Co., Mich. (I assume Michigan), which is puzzling. Roy was a resident of Jefferson Co., Arkansas.
Also, the image shows them being married in Prairie Co., Arkansas vice Cross Co., Arkansas as I reported earlier. Cross Co. is crossed out and written above is Prairie Co. on the marriage certificate image.

His administrative residency was at Norton Memorial Infirmary, Louisville, Kentucky, and his first professional employment was at Hardin Memorial Hospital, Elizabethtown, Kentucky. Later he was with the Kentucky Department of Health, as Chief of the Medical Facilities Division, administering the Hill-Burton construction program and the nursing home licensure program. Appointed Assistant Administrator of Fort Hamilton Hospital in 1957, Gaston became Administrator in 1958, serving 23 years until his retirement in 1981. In 1972 he was appointed Administrator of the merged Fort Hamilton-Hughes Memorial Hospital Center. In February of 1980, Gaston presided at ground breaking ceremonies for a $40.8 million replacement and renovation project at the hospital. Upon retirement he embarked on a new career of local realty sales and appraisal, and owned American Blueprint in Hamilton.
Among his many professional activities, in 1966 he participated in a comprehensive national executive development program at Cornell University, Ithaca, New York; and served as a consultant in Honduras, during a six-week period in 1967, to CARE-Medico, advising and assisting two government hospitals. He was a long-time member of the American Hospital Association, serving on the Blue Cross Association Joint Conference Committee and the Health Insurance Joint Conference Committee; a member of the American College of Hospital Administrators; a member of the American Protestant Hospital Association, serving on the Board of Trustees from 1968-1977, as Treasurer from 1970-1974, and as Chairman of the Board in 1976; a member of the Ohio Hospital Association, serving as Chairman of the Regional Political Action Committee; Past-President of the Greater Cincinnati Hospital Council; a member of the Central Ohio River Valley Health Planning Association, serving on the Board of Directors from 1974-1976; member of the Ohio Valley Regional Medical Program devoted to research and development in health care delivery; and Past-President of the Community Home Association (Westover Retirement Community) and past-member of the Hamilton Public Utilities Commission.
Locally, Gaston was a long-time member of Rotary Club, serving as Past President; former Chairman of the Board of the Butler Metropolitan Housing Authority; Past-President of the Hamilton-Fairfield Board of Realtors; and member of the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels. A member of Trinity Episcopal Church, Hamilton, Gaston served for many years on the church vestry. He served two consecutive four-year terms as a Milford Township Trustee in the 1980’s, and was elected to a two-year term in 1986 as a member of the Butler County Republican Central Committee.
Gaston is survived by his wife, Loretta; his four children, Bruce and his wife Nan Richman, of Claymont, Delaware; Jim and his wife Pat Lohmann, of Iowa City, Iowa; Lisa and her husband Dennis Farthing, of Hamilton; and Jana (Herd) Edberg, of Canton, Georgia; grandchildren Nathan and Kerstin Edberg, Angela and Jacob Farthing; sister Fern (Herd) Bowling of Hamilton; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers Oscar and Olin, and sister Zena (Herd) McGee.
Gaston’s education at Oneida Baptist Institute was particularly important to him, and was the cornerstone of his faith in common human decency. His wartime experiences paved the way for his career choice in public health administration. Gaston’s tenure as administrator at Ft. Hamilton Hospital was motivated by a deep-seated concern for the welfare of patients. His ability to communicate with hospital staff engendered a legacy of service and compassion.

Noted events in his life were:

• Military Service: 1942. Stanley was stationed at Camp Wolters, Texas in 1942.

• Obituary: 19 January 2004, Hamilton, Butler County, Ohio. Stanley B. Dezarn, age 81 of Hamilton, went home to be with his Lord at Westover Retirement Center, on Friday January 17, 2004. He was born April 15, 1922 in a log cabin in Clay County, KY, the son of Alfred and Maxie (Baker) Dezarn.

Stanley began his career as a school teacher in 1946 in Clay County, KY, where he taught all eight grades in a one-room school. There he met Icea "Bug" Cornett, who was also a teacher, and they were married in Corbin, Ky. On September 2, 1947. After moving to Hamilton in 1955, he taught at Liberty Township and George Washington Elementary schools. He also taught classes at Dakota Wesleyan University and Pikeville College. Stanley was an elementary school principal for 28 years in Lebanon and Fairfield, OH, retiring from Fairfield North Elementary in 1980. His love of history, people, travel, and culture inspired him to start his own bus tour company, Stanley Dezarn Bluegrass Tours, in 1979. He conducted tours all over the United States for many years, entertaining thousands of children and adults with his own unique style of "wit and wisdom. " He truly was a man who never met a stranger. Stanley was widely recognized as an expert in the history of Kentucky, helping to write several books. His collection of historical audio and videotapes is being maintained at Berea College in Kentucky. The log cabin in which he was born and raised was moved from Crane Creek to the college, where it is now a museum. Stanley served his country during WWII in the U.S. Army. He was a member of the First Baptist Church of Hamilton where he was a former Moderator and Sunday School Teacher. Stanley was the Founder of the O'Tucks Organization in 1959, which was an endeavor to blend the Ohio and Kentucky cultures and was born out of a desire to promote appreciation for the Kentucky heritage. His involvement in the O'Tucks was one of the great joys of his life, and his energy and enthusiasm inspired the same in others. Other memberships include: Kentucky Colonels; High Twelve Club; the Ambassador's Club; and the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce.

There is no way to measure how much Mr. Dezarn did for people, especially children. However, one thing is obvious - he devoted his life to helping others. At the age of 24, he adopted the words of this poem to help guide him throughout his journey here on earth:

"I shall pass through this world but once.
Any good, therefore, that I can do
Or any kindness that I can show
To any human being, let me do it now.
Let me not defer it or neglect it for
I shall not pass this way again."

This philosophy earned Stanley much respect and love by all that knew him. We believe his hope today would be that every person would adopt a similar philosophy, allowing others to enjoy the same fruits of life as he did.

Stanley is survived by his daughters Tanya (Dan) Acton and Deanna Barker; brother, Raleigh Dezarn; sisters, Delphia Lindsay, Annabell Cupp and Jessie Koch; grandchildren, Jamey (Amy) Gray, Danny Acton, and Tyler Shepard; great-grandchildren, Carter and Hayden Gray; many nieces and nephews; and dear friend, Eula Bowling. He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Icea (Cornett) Dezarn; brothers, Walter and Earl Dezarn; and sisters, Sofie McCollum, Lillie Roberts and America Grills.

The family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to the staff of Westover Retirement Community for all of their care and support.

A Celebration of Stanley's Life will be 7 p.m., Thursday, January 22, 2004 at the First Baptist Church of Hamilton, 1501 Hamilton-Cleves Rd., Hamilton. Officiants will include: Dr. M. Douglas Willey; Dr. Dennis Metzger; Dr. Jack Early; and Jack Young. Visitation will also be Thursday at the Church from 3 p.m. - until the time of Celebration. Burial will be private at the convenience of the family. The Avance Funeral Home & Crematory, Fairfield is serving the family. Memorials may be sent to the O'Tucks Scholarship Fund, c/o Joyce Thall, 1740 Cleveland Ave., Hamilton, OH 45013. The family will accept condolences at www.avancefuneralhome.com.

When she arrived Friday, she entered the home in the 4700 block of Avendia La Flora Deserita, and he came out of his bedroom holding a gun, pointed the gun at her and said "Linda, I have to shoot you". Thinking he was kidding, which she said he did a lot, she laughed it off saying, "Oh Shelby, at that point he shot her once in the abdomen. Wounded, she tried to take the gun away. Neal said Dezarn worked out regularly and had good upper body strength for an 89-year-old. She pulled on the gun, he pulled it back, and they continued to struggle. Neal said she knew his legs were weaker so she knocked him to the ground. He was still holding the gun, and while lying on the ground, put it to his head and shot himself. She was able to call 9-1-1.

all born in Cincinnati, OH.

My brother Gilbert died December 5, 1959 in a car accident in Cincinnati. He
died way too young.

Rose Mary moved to live with my grandmother in Bristol at a very young age
because of poor health problems. She married Herbert Dunn of Bristol (no
idea of what year) and they had a daughter named Tonya Leah Dunn born Jan.
20, 19?? and Clarence Dwayne Dunn born March 15. 1965 or 1966. Rose Mary and
Herbert divorced. She later married Teddy Eller of Bristol and they later
divorced.

Clarence married Sharon Wilson of Newport, KY and they had a daughter
Angela Lynn DeZarn born August 10, 1966. They divorced and he later married
Carmella Pangallo of Newport, KY they had a daughter Catherine Eliazabeth
born July 13, 1972.

Sheila married Dan Billings of Newport, KY in 1972. They had a son Douglas
Edward Billings born November 24, 1976 and daughter Lisa Ann Billings born
Feb. 28, 1978.

I married Michael Stanley Clos of Newport on Jan. 8,1972. We had a daughter
Brandy Sue Clos (last name later changed to Williams re my 3rd marriage) born
July 18, 1972. We divorced and I later married William J. Risch Jr. of
Newport, KY on Feb. 3, 1975. We had a daughter Miranda Dawn Risch (last name
later changed to Williams re my 3rd marriage). We divorced and I later
married Paul Edward Williams of Springdale, OH a suburb of Cincinnati. There
were no children in this marriage but he did adopt my youngest and had my
oldest's last name changed to his. We divorced after 18 1/2 years of
marriage. In May of this year on May 3, 2000 I married a man from England
whom I met on the Internet in June of 1999 after my 3rd marriage ended. His
name is Paul Colin Hurwood but don't use his full middle name just use the
letter C. he hates his middle name.

My oldest daughter has a son Christian Alexander Williams born Feb. 14, 1998
and a daughter Kathleen Elizabeth Burg born August 24, 2000.

My youngest daughter has a stepson named Jonathon David Hoffman born July 8,
1992 and a son Nathaniel Scott Williams born August 23, 1994. She and David
have a son together Joshua Bradley Hoffman born August 9, 1998 and a
daughter Makenna Dawn Hoffman born Sept. 10, 2000.

I will try to get the names of all the other children born to this part of
the family so that you can add to the rest of the information I have put down
in this email.

I also remember my father saying he had a sister named Myrtle who died about
the age of 16 from leukemia. I am not sure if she was older or younger than
he was.

I will close for now and hope to hear from you soon.

Sincerely

Linda S. Hurwood

DEZARN, WILLIAM R.
Synopsis:
The President of the United States takes pleasure in presenting the Distinguished Service Cross to William R.

Headquarters, Seventh U.S. Army, General Orders No. 258 (1945)

1 April 2011 - I discovered a family tree hosted by Walter Tyler Lott on Ancestry.com. This tree shows William Raymond DeZarn and his wife, Jewell Reid, and several living children. I then determined that Jewell Reid was listed in the Kentucky Birth Index as the mother of:

Donald R. DeZarn, born 21 September 1950, Christian County, Kentucky
Joanne DeZarn, born 6 April 1952, Laurel County, Kentucky
Darlene Yvonne DeZarn, born 10 October 1953, Christian County, Kentucky

I also determined that Darlene Yvonne DeZarn is currently married to Walter Tyler Lott, and they live in Owensboro, Daviess County, Kentucky.

I then found a phone number for and called Donald Ray DeZarn, who lives with his wife, Josephine, in Holden, Louisiana. Donald Ray confirmed for me that William Raymond DeZarn was his father and that there is fourth child name Jewell Faye DeZarn.

3 April 2011 - I spoke with Tyler Lott by phone, and he said he did not have any further information regarding William Raymond DeZarn's children from his marriage to Lola (last name unknown). The nine children's names are shown in William's obituary from December 1968.


Noted events in his life were:

Surviving are his widow, Lola; five sons, Joe, William, Richard, Fred, and Henry, and four daughters, Mavis, Diana, Brenda, and Barbara, all of Pinedale.

Researcher Note: I suspect his being born in Detroit, Michigan is incorrect. He was most likely born in Kentucky.
