Mary Dees b 1869 d 1902 Covington Co. MS. She was the daughter of John Terrell Dees and Elizabeth(spelled deese in places)I believe her grandparents were Arthur and Leacy Terrell ? Dees. (where is that gen. sheet when you need it? ) Her siblings names were a mixture of the names of her aunts as well. Leacy, Rebecca, Susan, etc. Married names of the Dees sisters include Bass, Foles, and Easterling - Mary had a brother named Calvin who married three times and lived a long long life. His las wife was Arizona Carter and he named his son Carter Dees. I believe he was raised by Susan Dees Easterling. We have no picture of Mary and my grandfather died without ever having one. Family lore is that someone in the family had one that was passed on, but they can't find it. I may have some of the names mixed up right now, but I can remedy that. In the meantime if you are interested in Mary or her family we can glady share that and perhaps down the line someone will have a picure. Mary married my g-grandfather Joseph Harris Farnham Sr. and together they had at least four or five children. This info is skimpy I know, but as I said, I can remedy that. I am not from MS so Mt Carmel is not familiar but my cousins will know about it.
