The Passing of Martha Ann Deaton

Post by TroyDeaton » Mon Dec 07, 2020 10:54 am

It is with a heavy heart that I bring the news of the passing of Martha Ann.

I spoke with her son, Darryl Wesley Duncan, today and he informed me of her passing on 24 November 2020. Darryl and I had a wonderful conversation today and he spoke at length about his mother in her last few years. Darryl said he always wanted the "Deaton" last name and I told him he would always be a Deaton with or without the last name.

Our entire family owes a tremendous debt to Martha Ann for all the hard work she accomplished to gather the history of the Deaton Family over the years. She accomplished the research long before the Internet. She did it the hard way....she rolled up her sleeves and visited many, many locations to research family birth, marriage, and death records.

Martha's plain hard work in the past will take our family into the future.

Thank you Martha Ann.

Troy Deaton, Son of Ernest Lee Deaton, and Cousin to Martha Ann.
