George Michael Deaderick in 1807 established and was president of the Nashville Bank, the first bank in the state. His son, John G. Deaderick, owned 5,000 acres of land, a portion of which was passed down to his son, William Pitt Deaderick, and was later developed as the Orange Mound community. (see other side)
A “planned community,” Orange Mound is considered one of the first African-American subdivisions built in the South. Park, David, Barron, Spottswood, and Hamilton streets were named after members of the Deaderick family. Other family members buried here are Eliza E.G. Deaderick in 1845; Don D. Deaderick in 1841; and David Dunn in 1837.
