Look up Deedy in Websters Dictionary and you will see the following definition - \Deed"y\, a. Industrious; active. [R.] --Cowper. But to me Deedy is simply my last name and not a very common one at that. My Father always said "find yourself in a strange city? Open a phone book, find a Deedy and give them a call - chances are they are a relative." So, for all the Deedy's out there hello and welcome.

A Boxing Deedy?

This blurb was found in the October 5, 1940 New York Times. Not sure where/if this boxing Deedy fits on the family tree...

    WOW.. Jane, I think maybe this James Deedy Boxer could be my father...he also boxed in N.Y. around that time. Thanks for the tip. Diane Deedy (PA)

    Hi Jane, earlier I left a comment about "A Boxing Deedy", I must've posted it wrong because it came up "anonymous", anyway this boxing Deedy is most likely my father James, we lived in New York & he was a feather weight. When we were kids he taught my sisters & I how to box. He was also quite an artist.
