Daniel and Elizabeth Fackler Huntsberger Deemy had several children, among them John Henry Deemy. John Henry Deemy was my paternal grandfather. He married Rachel Miller in Dallas Center, Dallas, IA 15June1898. After the birth of their two children, Hildred B. Elizabeth Deemy and Harold Amos Deemy, Rachel died on 9Jul1903. John Henry then married Virgi Small in 1905. John then spent 3 months in Iowa state prison in 1906. Sometime shortly after this prison stay, John changed his name to Harry Alberta Densmore and moved with Virgi and Hildred and Harold to El Reno, OK. John Henry
(aka Harry Alberta Densmore) died 8Nov1961 in Charleston, Cole, IL. Marriage and obituaries were found in Dallas county News - Adel, Iowa 22June 1898, Des Moines Daily News and the Daily Capital, Des Moines, IA 7-13,1903. US Census records in Dallas and Polk counties of Iowa in 1900 and 1910, 1920 and 1930 census in El Reno and Oklahoma City,Oklahoma and Charleston, IL verify this information. John Henry has been missing from family records since around 1906. I was raised as Sandra Densmore because John Henry changed not only his full name but the last name of Hildred and Harold to Densmore.
