Family Biography

By R. DEAKINS



[editorial comment]
[Posted at Deakins Family Genealogy]

"Adam Luther Deakins was the son of Finis and Sarah (Kelley) Deakins was born in Boone County Arkansas in November 1874 and died March 17, 1966. Luther (the name he went by) lived in Novice, Texas in Coleman County all of his life. He was humble, quiet, and conservative, and he had a great sense of humor. He married Ada Birdwell. Everyone called her "Deak", including her grand kids, and she was "a character," very outgoing and outspoken, to put it politely. She dipped snuff. She was a wonderful mother, and she and Luther had three children: Homer Lodell Sr. Pete, and Cordie. Luther was a carpenter by trade, and a bit of a farmer. He and Deak owned a few acres of land and a few farm animals like pigs, a cow and some chickens, which she tended to and collected eggs from. Luther had a cousin in Pecos - Ira - another "character"; he was on the Irish side, a rancher, and owned lots of property. Luther smoked Lucky Strikes cigarettes, which he used to say would kill him someday, and lived to be 93. He was a Republican.
