I have been reading your posts on your trip to Jumping Branch. I have Deeds family in that area, also Upton, Lilly and Meador. My great grandmother was Elizabeth "Etta" Deeds who married John Upton and lived in Jumping Branch. She and her husband are buried in the Upton cemetery located in Jumping Branch. Their daughter Sona married John Alfred Lilly and daughter Edna V married James Meador. Another daughter, my grandmother, Tina married Basil Ratliff and lived in Hinton. I spent my summers as a child in Hinton and we visited relatives in Jumping Branch. My last visit was last summer and I went to Jumping Branch to take pictures of the graves in the Upton cemetery. Unfortunately I did not make it to the Deeds cemetery but hope to return this summer. I would be very interested in what information you have. Thanks
