  • Notes 
    • Two more children are known to have been born by his first wife. Bothdied as infants. John Walker Deshazo was a Methodist minister andcircuit rider. He is described in a book on Methodists in Arkansas.After the death of his first wife, he married a much younger woman andhad a second family in Tennessee.

      Susan Dickson reports his name as John Wesley Deshazo since he was a Methodist minister, a circuit rider.

      According to the 1910 Census, J.W. Deshazo was only married twice, not three times. He is enumerated with Fannie Cole, his last wife.

      It appears that from the early 1870s till late 1880s, J.W. Deshazo lived in Dickson County, Tennessee, the home of his second wife.
