Family Story
"DEAKINS, Baby - (no dates)" buried in Atoka Cemetery, Coleman Co, TEXAS



[editorial comment]
[Updated as of Saturday, December 10, 2011]

The following is a genealogical "proof" to support the proposition that "DEAKINS, Baby - (no dates)" buried in Atoka Cemetery, Coleman Co, TEXAS, was the child of Adam Luther DEAKINS (b. 1874) and his wife Ada BIRDWELL DEAKINS (b. 1880).

Current Data:
Adam Luther DEAKINS and his wife Ada BIRDWELL DEAKINS were married 24 Dec 1896. Source: Coleman County, Texas Marriage Records, Books I - IV , July 17, 1873 - October 10, 1907

The first child who grew to adulthood of Adam Luther and Ada was Cordie Maye DEAKINS born 25 Sep 1900. Source: Cordie Maye DEAKINS @ AtokaCemetery.org Database

Baby DEAKINS is buried in the DEAKINS' area of the Atoka Cemetery, close to Adam Luther and Ada, separated by Adam's and Ada's daughter Cordie DEAKINS BROOKS and her husband Joseph BROOKS. With the last name DEAKINS, Baby DEAKINS could not be the child of the BROOKS.
- DEAKINS, Adam L. - Nov 22, 1874 - Mar 17, 1966 (CS)
- DEAKINS, Ada (Birdwell) - Jan 11, 1880 - Mar 14, 1969 (CS)
- BROOKS, Joseph E. - June 11, 1898 - May 19, 1969 - "Texas Pvt US Army WWI"
- BROOKS, Cordie M. (Deakins) - Sept 25, 1900 - May 6, 1950 - "wife of Joe Brooks"
- DEAKINS, Baby - (no dates)
- DEAKINS, F. B. - Oct 5, 1892 - Sept 12, 1899

The 1900 Census for Coleman Co, TEXAS, enumerated 25 and 26 June 1900, indicates "Ada M Deakin, 20, Jan 1880, Texas, 1 child, 0 Living."

To date, we have not found a birth record or death record of a fourth child of Adam Luther and Ada.

Current Theory:
We believe Baby DEAKINS lived a life too short to warrant a recorded given name or a birth record. We believe Baby DEAKINS was born between 1896 and 1899, after her parent's marriage in 1896 and before January 1900, at least nine months before Cordie Maye DEAKINS was born on 25 Sep 1900. The only record of Baby DEAKINS is the 1900 Census enumeration of 1 child of Adam Luther and Ada; the one child was born and died before June 1900.
