March 9, 1911
The editor of the Eoline Messenger announces in this weeks issue, that the paper will suspend temporarily on account of the illness of the editor, Mr. M. H. Deason. He is going to take a trip to Colorado and spend a while in that climate in the hope that it will benefit him. The Press hopes that his stay in the West will entirely restore him to health and that he will be able to resume the publication of the Messenger on his return.

The Blocton Enterprise, West Blocton, AL, v. 6, no. 2, August 10, 1911: Death of M. H. Deason. We are informed that Mr. M. H. Deason, of Eoline, died at his home there Tuesday. Mr. Deason started the publication of the Eoline Messenger some time ago, but his failing health caused him to give it up and go west. It seems as if he returned home to die after having gotten no benefit from his trip. He has a brother, James Deason, at this place. He leaves a family all of whom have the deepest sympathy.

Diary of Wiley E. Deason gives death date of M. H. Deason as August 8, 1911, and states that he was buried on August 9, 1911. Date on his tombstone is incorrect.
