I am a descendant of Jesse Paradise DEES, son of William DEES and Amy DEES. For the past 2 years I have been researching the DEES or DEESE families in Southern Illinois, and the various branches. I do have David WHITEHORN and Naomi DEES in my data. Would like to share data, and will provide the information I have acquired both from research in Southern Ill., and from other DEES descendants. Hope to publish the results of this research shortly, and will include you on the distribution if you are interested in sharing data with the rest of us.
