Fayette County Photos
These photos are all of folks who either lived in Fayette County or who moved away from there. They all should be Deason
relations, but the Deason and Reynolds daughters married others whose last names included Brasier
, and others.
These photos were all in the possession of Francis Reynolds
who married Daniel R. Deason. Fannie was born on January 2, 1861
in Alabama to George Washington Reynolds (who died the next year at
Petersburg) and Hannah Holligsworth Reynolds. She and Dan married
on October 19, 1884, in Fayette County, a few years after Fannie's
sister Zilpha Amanda "Mandie" Reynolds had married Dan's older brother
Robert M. "Bob" Deason. These two couples decided to leave
Fayette County and came to Lee County, Mississippi at the turn of the
century. She stayed in contact with her kin and some of Dan's kin
back in Fayette County, but when she passed away on January 22, 1925,
she was buried in the Priceville Cemetery in Tupelo.
