Shared note

In the 1860 US Federal Census for Franklin, Johnson, Indiana, 38-year-old farmer John Peter Banta has prospered in the 10 years since the last census as he now owns real estate worth $10,325 and personal property worth $3,000. He and his 40-year-old wife Mary A have in their household their children, 15-year-old John E, 12-year-old Daniel A, 10-year-old George C, 7-year-old David W and 3-year-old Mary, and 22-year-old Sarah B Carnine recorded as a domestic.

From findagrave.com submitted by Shannon: Mrs. Mary Banta Deming, widow of Dillard Deming, died at her home in Hopewell neighborhood this morning at 11 o'clock. The end came following an illness of several months. In June, Mrs. Deming submitted to an operation, but although she rallied from the ordeal her condition was not improved.

Mrs. Deming was the daughter of Peter and Mary Banta, pioneers who came to Hopewell from Kentucky in 1828. She was born September 11, 1857. She attended the early schools at Hopewell and joined the Hopewell Church when a young girl. On October 11, 1882, she married to Dillard Deming of Edinburg, who was a member of the implement firm of Deming & Mullendore. They lived in Edinburg thirteen years until Mr. Deming's death, February 27, 1895. In the following May Mrs. Deming moved back to the old Banta farm at Hopewell where she had since resided.

Although she had lived in Edinburg for thirteen years, Mrs. Deming had kept in intimate touch with her friends at Hopewell and she became an active leader in the community's affairs. She was a charter member of the Fortnightly Club of Hopewell and contributed largely to its establishment as a permanent organization in the neighborhood. She also had a strong interest in missions and worked zealously in the Hopewell Missionary Society. For the most part, her activities were about evenly divided between her home and her church and service to each was that of a noble woman and a Christian mother.

Two sons, Byron Deming of Hopewell and Prof. Edwin Deming of Grand Rapids, Michigan, and a brother, George C. Banta of Hopewell survive.

Funeral services will be held Saturday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock at the Hopewell Church, conducted by the Rev. J.B. Ferguson. The funeral party will go by motor car to Edinburg where interment will be in the Deming lot in Rest Haven Cemetery.
