Died Franklin KY 1872. Buried in BlackJack Cemetery in Simpson County. His wife, Parasetta Pistole Dean, and their children are buried in Grayson Co., TX. Reportedly, Thomas returned to Kentucky in an effort to recuperate (from Civil War injuries?) but died there. Does anyone have information/death certificate for Thomas? Or any information about the final resting place of Thomas's father, Willis Dean (b. S.C. 1777), who left the family farm in Smith Co., TN, to lay claim to land in Red River Co., TX. He died about 1848 in Titus Co., TX, perhaps murdered behind his mercantile. Thank you.
