James , Is there someone in your files by the name of Ebb(Ebenizer)Deas who was married to Mary Jane Deas ? I believe Ebb and Jane(Mary Jane) to be the parents of my grand aunts husband .His name was Rufus Dees(Deas),he was born Jan 22,1896 and died Nov 26,1965 . My grand aunt was Lucille Clyde Berry, she was born March 4,1904 and died Feb 14,1978 .Both lived in Polk Co.,Fl at the time of their death and are buried ,along with a daughter,Mildred and her husband,Gene Tice, in Lakeside Mem.Park Cem.,Polk Co.,Fl. I found Ebb and Jane on the 1920 census from Hamilton Co.,Fl in the Corinth area and on the 1880 census for Hamilton Co.,Fl in the Bartow area .Last name is spelled different in each census,1920 spelling is Dees: 1880 spelling is Deas .
Would appreciate hearing from you . Thanks, Betty Herndon Williams Bryceville,Fl.
