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 or Reynolds relations, but the Deason and Reynolds daughters married others whose last names included Brasier/Brasher, Pyle, 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.
