Nancy Jane Deason was the youngest daughter and child of Jeremiah Deason and Frances Charlotte McFarlin Johnson. She was born in Rusk County, Texas, and moved to Claiborne Parish, Louisiana, with her mother. Her father had died of battle injuries in Camp Mills, Arkansas, shortly after Nancy's birth. He'd been a Confederate soldier, enlisted in Company H, 19th Infantry Regiment of Texas in 1862, and died in 1863.
By 1880, Frances and her daughter, Nancy were in the 8th Ward of Claiborne Parish, and 16 Nov 1884, Nancy married William Peyton "Pate" Cupp in Lincoln Parish, Louisiana.
By 1900, Nancy and Pate Cupp had moved back to Texas, first in Panola County, before moving on to Milam and Burleson Counties where their children all settled.
Nancy and Pate's children include:
1. Robert Edgar 1885-1964;
2. Blanchie C. Cupp-Luce 1889-1976 (Find A Grave Memorial# 23137012);
3. Tannie (or Lonnie) M. Cupp 1893-?;
4. Onie Douglas Cupp 1895-1993;
5. Martha M. Cupp 1899-?;
6. Ellis Eugene Cupp 1902-1959 (Find A Grave Memorial# 92022309);
7. Elva Cupp 1910-?

Nancy was widowed in 1912, and was supported by her sons (as indicated in Onie Douglas Cupp's 1917 draft card!). In 1930, she was living in Burleson County, Texas, in 1935, she was in Winkler County, Texas, and back in Burleson County by 1940.
