Lavelia Field & Eugene Gene DeShazer

Lavelia Field & Eugene Gene DeShazer

Classification: Query
I am researching my family. I know that the DeShazer side lived in Lamar and have a birth certificate for my grandfather Louie Clyde DeShazer. He was born in Deport, Texas. His mother's name is Lavelia Fields. I am trying to find any information on her. I know she was born around 1888 in Texas and died in 1919. I can't seem to find any other information. If anyone can help, that would be great. I have been told she was Cherokee Indian, but can't be sure.

Texas death certificates 1890 - 1976 are on the familysearch.org website. You need a user name and password to view and download. There is no cost.
https://www.familysearch.org/

The same website has transcribed marriage records, not the actual records. Texas birth index 1903 - 1997.

Louie Clyde Deshazer born in Deport Texas 31 Mar 1913 son of Lavelia Field(s)

Is Louie's birth certificate one that was filed at time of his birth or is it a delayed filing ? I do not find that it was reported at the time of his birth there were 4 births record in Lamar county on 31 Mar 1913 none were Louie's.

No death record for for mother of L C and Earl R Deshazer who was listed as Ella Deshazer on Eugene's WW I draft card in Red River County in 1918. One census record says she was born in TN one TX so you can't count on her place of birth as being in Texas and discount the Indian heritage until you find her.

DraftBoard: 0 WW I dated 12 Sept 1918 named Ella Deshazer nearest relative signed Gene Deshazer.

There was a Thomas M Field b. MS Dec 1862 wife Zenoba P "Noby" Terrell born MS June 1866 who married in Lamar Co 26 Sep 1889 who had dtrs Minnie Lee b. TX Sept 1890, L. Tommie Apr 1893, Nellie J May 1895 and son Bennie M Sept 1898 who lived in Lamar Co 1900.

Pedigrees says Thomas Mallory Field Jr married Zenobia Perneece Terrell and they moved to White, McCurtain Co OK by 1920 son Frank b. TX 1902 dtr Florance 1905 TX son Sellaus 1909 TX. Ben M Fields married a Mae b. TX and dtr Alleene was born OK abt 1919 and Nellie Fields was gone by 1920.

Thomas Fields 47 born MS married 20 yrs
Jenoa Fields 44 MS bore 7 children all living
Nellie 15
Bennie 12
Frankie 09

This would mean that Minnie Lee and L Tommie Field(s) married by 1910 and "Gene" Deshazer was still single in 1910.

Public trees shows that Minnie Lee married John Paul Key and died in Baxter Co AR 1963. Lillie Tommie's death reported to be in Paris, Lamar Co 17 Oct 1918 but no record of who she married and Nellie Josephine married a Turner in McCurtain Co 22 May 1913.

At least this discounts this family but by 1910 census there were other Field(s) living in Lamar County including Stella Fields b. AR 1895 niece of James and Emma Fields.

Louis Clyde's birth certificate must have been a delayed filing. The date I have on it is 19 Feb. 1951. I had seen on Eugene's draft card that she was named "ella" and had searched. My mom found out she had her dad's birth certificate and states her full name as Lavelia Fields with her birthplace as Texas. This is literally all I can find on her.

Surnames: DeShazer, Fannie
My great grand mother was Fannie Deshazer who married Hillary (or Hila Riah) Rowden Fowler> According to my family lore Fannie was a full-blood Cherokee, who lived in the area between Adair County (Cherokee), OK and Sequoia County (Choctaw) OK. My understanding is that "DeShazer" was fairly common among the Cherokees. My grandfather was born in 1883, So Fannie would have been, perhaps 25 or 30 years old in 1883. Sorry I have no info on Louie Clyde DeShazer. The name DeShazer may be of French origin. Good luck with your search. I would appreciate any info on Fannie DeShazer. tc
