Looking for info on Arzanna Haught and Coty Deem
Arzanna, daughter of Martin Haught and Hannah Maul, was my paternal grandmother.

She married Coty Deem, had nine children (7 boys, 2 girls). My father Lawrence C. Deem was their 2nd child. There were Burleigh, Homer, Lawrence, Coty Jr, Dana, Ernie, Richard, Ernestine, Dorothy.
I found one listing, but it stated Arzanna married a Doctor Deem.Was told my grandfather had been a coal miner, and he was a farmer when I knew him, so the doctor must be an error.
In 1959 they lived on a small farm in Hepzibah, WV; Coty died that year of a heart attack. He was buried in Ritchie County.
Coty's father's name was (?) Franklin and his mother was Ellen. Their children were: Coty, Sherman, Roxie, Lonnie, Shirley, Fannie, and Gay. That's all I have.
After that, Arzanna lived with Burleigh and Alda in Hepzibah. Later she lived with Ernestine on her farm where she died when she was almost 100 years old.
Arzanna wrote poetry in letters, and she always read The Bible before we went to bed when I visited them.
I do remember going to my g/grandma's home (Hannah Haught) in Beatrice, believe her area was still called this, playing in the creek and swinging on the swinging bridge.
I am the third child of Lawrence (deceased) and Dessie.
