| S D Jones Home Page | William Deupree Family Record |
This page is a short synopsis of the Deupree genealogy, an ongoing attempt to locate all descendants of William Deupree (1759-1854) of Charlotte and Lunenburg Counties, Virginia. He had thirteen children, of whom ten reached maturity and left descendants. Below are the ten children, whom they married, where they settled upon leaving Virginia and some of the major family names. Each of the ten children is traced out four generations over the next ten pages. He wrote the names of his children and several of his grandchildren in a ledger book in the 1840's. He was over 80 years old and had excellent handwriting (one page example).
