W. H. DEASON was born in 1840 in Todd County, Ky.; his parents are James N. and Eliza J. (Tacker) Deason, natives of Kentucky. The father was a farmer; his death occurred in 1864, at the age of forty-seven years; the mother is living in this county, at the age of sixty-five years. These parents have eight children all living in years of maturity (a very uncommon thing). W. H. began for himself at the age of twenty years; he farmed on rented ground for fifteen years, when he bought 150 acres, located on the East Fork of Pond River; he has a nice farm and is a good farmer, responsible and well-to-do. His principal product is tobacco, having raised 4,000 pounds the past year; his farm raises good corn and wheat, and is especially’ adapted for the latter; it can hardly be excelled for wheat land. He was married in 1861 to Mrs. Mary V. (Tucker) Powell, of this county: These parents have six living children, viz.: . Emma J. (the wife of T. N. Cathcart, of Tenn.), W. H., G. W., Mary A., Mida F. and Benjamin C. The parents and two of the children are members of the Baptist Church.
