John Gupton and Mary Dean were my great-grand parents. They lived in Wood, Franklin Co., N. C.Their children were:1. John William (b. 1849) who married Carolyn Fisher.They had three children. 2. Leacy (daughter, b. 1850) who is believed to have died before reaching adulthood. 3. Joseph (b. 1851) never married. 4. Neverson Cooper (b. Oct. 6, 1853) who married Elizabeth "Bettie" Rainey/Raynor. They had thirteen children. My father was their thirteenth child. John Gupton died in 1907. He is buried in Wood. I don't know when Mary died, I assume that she is buried in Wood also.I am glad to learn her father's name, I've been searching for it for quite some time. Is her mother's name Eliza?I would love to share more Dean and Gupton information with you!
