Rogers Democrat
Thursday, May 13, 1915

W.H. Deason, best known to his friends and relatives as "Uncle Hone" Deason, died Sunday night at the home of his son, Robert Deason, two miles northwest of Rogers, at the advanced age of 87 years. Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at two o'clock at the Pleasant Hill church, conducted by Rev. U.S. Thomas, and interment was made in the Deason cemetery close by. Mr. Deason was a native of Tennessee, as were so many of our pioneer settlers, coming to Benton county in 1852. Six years later he married Miss Cynthia Walker and to them were born four children, three sons and one daughter. Mr. Deason was one of the most highly respected citizens of the county and was a faithful and consistent member of the Baptist church. He had a very large circle of friends and for a number of years the birthday party given each November 17th in his honor was one of the big annual social events of that neighborhood and a hundred or more relatives and friends were always present. His death marks the last chapter of a long a useful life and the passing of a good man.
