My interest is in the descendants of Elizabeth M (NICHOLS) DEASON. I have been in contact with some of her descendants as well as a descendant of at least one of her siblings. The date & place of her father's birth (04 MAY 1811, Franklin Co, TN) were provided by one or more direct descendants.

I have some limited information on ancestors of Nancy (nee WHEELER) NICHOLS, and Mary E "Emma" (RUSHING) DEASON-MARR, plus limited information on descendants of Nancy's husband, Jackson NICHOLS, but nothing further at this time on his background.
