  • Notes 
    • John and Mary (Polly) lived on Wet Creek, just south of what is now North Carolina Highway 24/27 on Big Oak Church Road in northwest Moore County. Polly was the sister of Amanda Deaton, who married John's brother, Francis.

      Both are buried in the Deaton family cemetery in a heavily wooded area about a mile north of Bensalem Presbyterian Church. One reference gives Mary's death date as 10 Dec 1867.

      Although a middle initial of "M." is commonly ascribed to John, no primary source is known for it.
