Additional information for Mattie Deen. Her full birth name was Mattie Eula McLaren, 4th child of 6 from William James McLaren and Cordelia Ann (Parker) McLaren. She was born 21 Nov 1867 in Cedar Grove, Angelina Co, Texas. She died 20 Apr 1941 in Tulia, Swisher Co., TX. She married Calloway Deen on 23 Feb 1886 in Van Zandt Co., TX. Calloway was born 21 Apr 1857 in Canton, Van Zandt Co., TX to Asberry McKinley Deen and Margaret Jane Kirkpatrick. Calloway died 1 Dec 1897 in Canton, Van Zandt Co., and is buried in Old Bethel Cemetery, near Canton. Calloway and Mattie had 3 children that I know of, Eula Pearl, Joseph Ernest, and Clarence Calloway.
Also note, Mattie had 2 other sisters who married brothers of Calloway Deen, so we have 3 McLaren sisters who married 3 Deen brothers, In addition to Mattie, Sarah JaneMc Laren married John Ecter Deen an Willie Edna McLaren married Asberry McKinley Deen, Jr.
My connection to this line is, Asberry McKinley Deen is my 2nd great grandfather. Calloway Deen is my great grand uncle.
