      Posted on Laurens Co. Message Board, Rootsweb, 13 Jan 2001:
      Would like to discuss with anyone information of a Captain Elijah Dean who commanded a company of men from Laurens County during the Seminole Indian War of 1817/1818. According to company records this group of men was stationed near the Ocmulgee River. Also would like information on this company of men.

      Reply:
      The info on Captain Elijah Dean interests me very much. I Believe he was my gggGrandfather. My records show that he reached the Rank of Major and fought in the war of 1812 and later some Indian wars. I would appreciate any info about him and any of his descendants , who may still live in the area where he lived.

      Reply:
      I have very little information on this person. I was in search of any informataion about this person and a battle in Hawkinsville, Georgia around the Flint River. When Elijan Deen was ordered to attack an innocent Indian Village. grgrgr grandfather wa in this battle and he is a mystery man. Never mentioned in any census and very few other documents. You can find some information on Elijah Deen in the History of Laurens County and a new book called History of the Georgia Militia 1783 - 1861 Volume I

    • 10th Regt NC Continental Line Baker's Co. Military Unit 1778 Halifax Co, NC
      Certified as a Revolutionary War soldier on Hitz's list. Military Service

      A special thank-you to my father Thomas Herbert Dean who researched the line from Richard and whose work established Richard as a Revolutionary War soldier.

      Four descendants of the Jeremiah Deans family line are 35-37 marker Y-DNA matches to a descen dant of Richard Dean b. 1760; that is, they and Richard Dean very likely share a common ances tor, as yet unidentified. I have speculated on all lines going back to a patriarch Thomas De ans. To see results, please go to http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~ladeanxx/dnaresul ts.htm.

      NOTE:
      That Thomas is the patriarch is speculative and does not agree with the Jeremiah Deans famil y genealogists' assumption; however, my prediction is based on what evidence I have at the mo ment. I am open to new information-hopeful that new information will surface. Richard b. 17 60 may have been the son of Richard, James, or Henry. For the purposes of connecting him wit h Jeremiah (since their descendants have a 35-37 Y-DNA match) I am listing my Richard b. 176 0 as the son of Richard b. 1739 or of James b. 1735 or of Henry b. 1740 with Thomas as the p atriarch..

      1. Thomas Deens b. c. 1710 enters records in Edgecombe, NC, in 1744; the last record is 1750 . (This Thomas is not necessarily the patriarch unless evidence proves so.)
      (the following are not necessarily brothers until evidence proves so)

      2. James b. c. 1735 enters the records in 1759, and disappears after 1774 (d. REV?)

      2. Richard b. c. 1736 enters the record in 1760; he may have died before 1782 census.

      2. Daniel b. c. 1737 enters the record in 1768, and moved to Wayne Co (evidence in the fo rm of deeds and wills supports that these are the children of the Daniel in Edgecombe and Nas h Co, NC (http://wc.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=REG&db=extendedfamily&id=I10842) m. Eliza beth

      Subject: Simeon Dean/Bryan connections

      In reading one of the last Dean list exchanges, two names caught my eye...
      Simeon and the Bryan surname. I am a SC Dean researcher and the early
      deans and Bryans were connected here in SC. My Rev. war ancestor, William
      Dean, b. ca 1760s in NC married as one of his wives, a Nancy Bryan,
      sometimes seen as Bryant. He had a son Simeon b. between 1780 - 1790 per
      the 1830 Edgefield Dist, SC census, who left SC. My research indicates
      that he marred twice and his second wife was Nancy Adams. b. SC. The 1850
      Chambers Co. AL census shows he and his wife Nancy and 6 children.
      Oldest son, in this census, another Simeon, as well as a sister Margart was
      born in SC ca 1832 and 1834. Next child, a Charles Malachi was born ca
      1839 in AL.

      I have not worked on the family any further down, as I descend from
      another brother and my direct lines remained in SC.

      Don't know that they connect, but the similar names caught my eye. I
      don't know William Dean, Sr.s parents, and the chance that they connect to
      these Same NC folks who ended up in GA, AL, TX is of interest to me.

      If anyone can connect to the William Dean Sr. I would love to correspond
      with you.

      NOTE: This is a huge breakthrough.
      (1) The document connects the four Pages of Burkes and Laurens Co, GA: This is the first soli d connection I have found between Elijah Dean (married Martha Page) and Lunsford C Pitts (mar ried Ruth Page) Elijah, as JP in Laurens, GA also performed the marriage between Baptist Scot t (see below) and Margaret Page and between Jacob Page and Elizabeth Roberts.
      (2) Connects the Colemans, Reeses, Pitts, Lunsfords, and Deans: Elijah?s daughter Martha R De an married Tomalin Reese (see below) and named a son Lunsford Pitts Reese. (Lunsford Pitts R eese is injured severely in the Civil War, having joined the AL 33rd in Greenville, Butler, A L, and goes to Bonifay, FL, after the war.) This is also the first connection I?ve found t o the Lunsford family (Henry Lunsford), some of whom that went to Texas in the group with Sim eon Dean in 1870 are surely from the same family. Tomalin Reese?s grandmother was Susan Colem an (Andrew Jackson Deens married a Louise Coleman although I do not know if related).

      Text: This is an interesting case taken from the files of the Laurens Co, Court Records that may o r may not show relationships between all of these Deans and /or reveal their genealogical ide ntities. Below the listings, I have included material that I gathered over the years as I ha ve tried to work out the ancestry of my Richard Deen/Dean. I have concluded that William Enel s Dean of Dobbs, NC, was likely the brother of John Dean (m. Jane Albritton) and that Willia m Dean (grandfather of Joseph R) was either their brother or their father. While there wa s a Richard Dean in Dobbs Co, I have not concluded that he is related closely to my Richard D ean simply because none of the Deans associated with William Enels Dean in Laurens appears a t any times on any of the records of my Richard Dean and his sons in Laurens; however, my Ric hard and his sons appear on the records of the family of the other Richard Dean of Laurens, t he Richard who married Winnifred Dyson in Nash Co, NC, in 1793, who was also the Richard wh o died in Laurens Co, GA in 1813, leaving a son Williamson, a daughter Charity, and a son Mee ky Tarley Dean.

      NOTE: I am grouping these first four because of the story they tell with the entries isolate d from the rest. I will put an * where they are inserted below.

      *2/1/1820 John Dean (I assume this is the John Dean who married Jane Albritton in 1814) sol d to William Dean of Laurens Co 2nd L. D. 1/2 of L. L. #211. $500.

      *2/2/1820 William Deen makes a gift of to his grandson Joseph R. Deen. 2nd L. D. 1/2 of L. L . #211.

      *2/10/1820 John Dean sold to Henry Bailey of Wilkinson County, 2nd L. D. 1/2 of L. L. #211. $ 200.

      *8/7/1821 Charles S. Guyton, Laurens Co. Sheriff, sold to Henry Bailey of Laurens County, 2n d L. D. 1/2 of L. L. #211. $70. This sheriff sale was the result of a fifa out of Justice Co urt in case of William Godfrey vs. William Deen. Witnesses: Henry Bohannon and Justice of Pe ace Thomas Mathers.


      10/1/1812 Jesse Green of Laurens Co, sold to William Enels Dean of Laurens County. 2nd L . D. L. L. #166. $400.

      3/0/1832 William Bayly [of 1790 Halifax, NC?] discharged from his security for Henry Bayle y, guardian of the children of William E. Dean. Henry Bayly to make new bond with Edward St . George as security.

      *NOTE: I have replicated the varied spelling in the document.

      I surmise that William E. Dean had his children during his first marriage as reflected in t he way that the children receive guardianship. His first wife was Katy Fordham m. 1806 in La urens County, GA, according to family records on worldconnect.com. William E. Dean married S usan Albritton in 1816. She did not become guardian for the children. I believe that the Susa n Dean who married John Brown in 1820 is William E. Dean?s widow Susannah Albritton Dean.

      A William Dean sold property to William E. Deen in Lenoir County, NC. Also see the censu s documents, land deeds, and wills from Dobbs/Craven//Lenoir/Jones, Co, NC: a James Standle y / Stanley and Henry Bailey, who became William E. Dean?s children?s guardians, appear on va rious of those documents as does a William Dean, John Brown, and an Issac Brown, the later wh o bought land from William E. Dean in Lenoir County, NC, 1811, the year before William E. app ears in Laurens Co, GA. A number of deed transactions exist in Jones, NC, for William E. Dea n prior to his move to GA.

      John Dean appears on various documents relating to jury duty and attesting to property sale s through 1832. The last entry for William Dean in Laurens is 1821 except for the sheriff' s sale of the property in 1824.


      Tonight, I believe I finally connected the Deans of Laurens co, GA and Dobbs, NC, to the Lown des and Brooks Co, GA Deans. I speculate for the Dobbs, NC, origin for William Dean based o n documents in Dobbs that strongly connect both him and William Enels Dean (m. Katy Fordham a nd Susannah Albritton) to Dobbs. Families online list Daniel Dean, father of Daniel D. Dea n as Daniel Dupree Dean; however, the census lists him as Robert/ Robert D./ R. D./ Daniel . I am interested in what became of the other brothers: John Dean, Wm. E. Dean, Hardie/Hard y Dean, James L Dean, and Mitchell Dean. I welcome feedback.

    Notes 
    • Four descendants of the Jeremiah Deans family line are 35-37 marker Y-DNA matches to a descendant of Richard Dean b. 1760; that is, they and Richard Dean very likely share a common ancestor, as yet unidentified. I have speculated on all lines going back to a patriarch Thomas Deans. To see results, please go to http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~ladeanxx/dnaresul ts.htm.
      NOTE:
      That Thomas is the patriarch is speculative and does not agree with the Jeremiah Deans famil y genealogists' assumption; however, my prediction is based on what evidence I have at the mo ment. I am open to new information-hopeful that new information will surface. Richard b. 17 60 may have been the son of Richard, James, or Henry. For the purposes of connecting him wit h Jeremiah (since their descendants have a 35-37 Y-DNA match) I am listing my Richard b. 176 0 as the son of Richard b. 1739 or of James b. 1735 or of Henry b. 1740 with Thomas as the p atriarch..

      1. Thomas Deens b. c. 1710 enters records in Edgecombe, NC, in 1744; the last record is 1750 . (This Thomas is not necessarily the patriarch unless evidence proves so.)
      (the following are not necessarily brothers until evidence proves so)

      2. James b. c. 1735 enters the records in 1759, and disappears after 1774 (d. REV?)

      2. Richard b. c. 1736 enters the record in 1760; he may have died before 1782 census.

      2. Daniel b. c. 1737 enters the record in 1768, and moved to Wayne Co (evidence in the fo rm of deeds and wills supports that these are the children of the Daniel in Edgecombe and Nas h Co, NC (http://wc.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=REG&db=extendedfamily&id=I10842) m. Eliza beth
      3. Dempsy b. 1760 d. after 1827 AL (son of Daniel)
      3. James Deanes b: ABT 1762 in North Carolina

      3. Bartley Deans b: ABT 1775 in Wayne County, North Carolina
      3. John Deans b: ABT 1777 in Wayne County, North Carolina

      2. Jeremiah b. c. 1738 enters record in 1771(wc.rootsweb.com. Lamm, Ferrell, Williamson, Mer cer, Deans, & Etheridge - Wilson & Nash Counties, North Carolina Contact: Hunter Ferrell)
      3. Temperance b. 1767

      Montgomery, GA on the 1797 Tax List. Dies in Harden, TN 1823 m.
      Mary
      4. Edmond b. abt 1781 [Was this the Sherod that went to Montgomery Co, GA, which
      became Laurens Co, GA or was it an older Edmond, perhaps brother of Sherod? The Edmon d in Montgomery Co sold that land, which had fallen into in Laurens, GA , by 1804. He was b y 1804 living in Clarke Co, GA.
      1816 and 1819 Alabama
      Conecuh Co, AL 1820
      Warren Co, Mississippi 1830 (died 1831)
      [Montgomery then Laurens then Clarke before moving on to AL?]
      then to MS.
      4. Drewry Deans b. 8 Sept 1785 Is this the same Drewry who appeard on court documents in Na sh in 1813?
      Nash, NC 1820
      [Drury Deens] Conecuh, Alabama 1830
      Conecuh, Alabama 1840 (died 1841)
      * The above relationships between Sherod, wife Mary, and Drury, and Edmond are based on T. H . Dean?s research notes, on my own observations about generations and child-bearing years fo r women of the period, and upon Mary?s will (Uncle Joe?s Genealogy http://freepages.genealogy .rootsweb.com/~unclejoe/deanwill.html)

      2. Henry b. c. 1740 enters record in 1774 May have died after 1790 census. No parentage ide ntified.
