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.

Jack Barry's Registration Cards

Jack Barry's registration records for WWI and WWII have been found and provide a couple of interesting tidbits. In the WWI Registration Card, Jack Barry lists his address as 1 View Street - so he and his wife Margaret were living with Mary Loftus McDonough. He indicates in the registration card that he is seeking a deferment for service due to his need to support his wife. He must have changed his mind later - since he enlisted in WWI, interupting his baseball career.

In the WWII Draft Card a scar is noted. This would be the famous scar Jack Barry obtained when Ty Cobb spiked him.
