Dempsey Aaron Easley & Willie Mullins

On their Wedding Day, 15 Aug 1907, Van Zandt County

Submitted by Sibyl Creasey

 

Dempsey Aaron Easley was born 6 Dec 1884 in Van Zandt County in the Watts Community to William Littleton Easley and Mary Emaline Baker. He lived in the county all his life and died in Mother Frances Hospital in 20 Dec 1941 following a botched surgery. He was residing in Ben Wheeler at the time. He married Willie Mullins who was born 21 Feb 1887 in Overton, Smith County, Texas. She was the daughter of Jesse William Mullins and Alice Roslin Stone who settled in Edom, Van Zandt County, Texas, shortly after 1900. Dempsey and Willie "ran off" to be married. Willie's father was hopping mad and went after the couple riding a mule and carrying a shotgun. Fortunately for their vast number of descendants, the irate father never caught up with the couple.
