Dempsceny Catherine Hoyle Beaver
Dempsceny is Pronounced 'Demp Seen E'

Dempsceny was born and reared in dirty Ankle near the old Buff cemetery. She helped her father clear the land for farming.
She plowed an oxen named little Jack while her father plowed an oxen named big Jack.
She walked to school on Carpenters Knob with her brothers and sisters following a trail made by her father Sonny.
Dempsceny met her future husband John at a church service.
When he came courting he had to sit inside with the family, she wasn't allowed to go anywhere with him until they were married.
When they married she was so excited she left her hat at the Hull home where they were married and had to go back for it. John had built them a small log cabin near his parents somewhere on or near what is now Willis road near Belwood.
Sometime after the turn of the century John and Dempsceny moved to Polkville with the eldest of their eight children.
Grandma Beaver was a housewife, she helped in the fields, she was a midwife, later moving near Lattimore for a while then about 1930 the family bought a farm in Reepsville and operated a corn mill.
About 1936 or 1937 John and Dempsey moved back to Polkville with their youngest son Roscoe.
