(research note: The natural parents of Dr. Robert Feagan aka Robert Lee Deason 's were Atoka Myrtle Feagans and Gus Lee Deason. Atoka Feagans Deason, sister of Claude Feagan -- (Claude chose not to use an "s" ending on the spelling of his surname) - died soon after the birth of her son Robert Lee Deason.
Unable to adequately provide for his newborn son (there were seven other small children that required his attention) Gus asked his brother-in-law Claude Feagan and his wife Della Oliver Feagan to "look after" Robert.
Robert was raised in Claude and Della's household under the name of Robert Feagan.
Claude (Claudius) Gamalie Feagan and his sister Atoka (Tokie) Myrtle Feagans were two of the children of Daniel Feagans and Mary Ann Blanton. They were the grandchildren of Stephen Fletcher Blanton and Sarah McDaniel. )
