The Deaton Name

The Deaton name started in Ditton, Shropshire England. Another way to spell it was Deighton.  The Deatons came to Clay County, Ky, now known as Breathitt, before 1820. Clay County was split into parts of several counties and Breathitt County was formed in 1839. There were Deatons in Owsley, Perry and Breathitt Counties.  John and Malinda Deaton were the parents of 10 sons and 3 daughters.
