  1. Hi Evelyn
    I am also researching a John Deerfoot. The familysearch.org site and ancestry.com have a baby boy born in Philadelphia on 30 Dec 1891 to John and Annie Deerfoot. The baby Louis Deerfoot died on 19 Feb 1892 in Philadelphia. Have you ever heard of any Philadelphia connection? There was also a Hazel Deerfoot born 1876 in Texas who married Nicholas Rehr in 1898 in Philadelphia. She died in Phila in 1921. Can’t find anything on her parents.

    I cannot find ANY info on John and Annie Deerfoot. They were not in any Phila. city directories or any census records. The only John Deerfoot that comes up around that time is from 1899 to 1908 in Schenectady as a physician, herbal doctor. That man was born c. 1845 in Canada. Not sure if he was the same man as the father of baby Louis.

    Figuring out the parents of Louis could help me break a huge brick wall. My theory is that Annie Deerfoot’s maiden name was Carey but I cannot find a record. Any hints would be appreciated.
