 Jerry was born Dec. 1862 in Owsley Co., KY and died Sept. 1918 (buried on Cow Creek). He was father of Fanny Reynolds Herald.  Bill, son of Elihu and Sallie Ann Wilson Reynolds,
was brother to Jerry
 Johnny never took the name Deaton although
Breathitt Co. marriage records erroneously listed
him as Deaton. I think he did not get along with
his father Jackie. At one point census records
list sister Gemima in Jackie's household and
Johnny in someone else house as help. His family
would move to Jackson Co. (or Laurel).
Daughter Ona Wells Turner (m1 Sam Turner)
remained at Crockettsville.
 Husband of Gemima Deaton (married circa 1885?). Born April 1868,
s/o Mahala Herald and Daniel McDaniel.
 Gemima was born 1864 or 1865 near Crockettsville
to Polly Wells and Jackie Deaton.
Polly raised her and twin Johnny until about the
age of 9 when Jackie took them.
I'm not sure when Gemima took the name of Deaton
but brother Johnny always went by the name Wells.
Polly is said to have walked back to relatives in Virginia after that.
