I am interested in corresponding with anyone descended from or knowing about the family of Charles F. Dean, Fred L. Dean, and Amanda Dean (aged 106) all buried in the Davis cemetery in Graham Co. According to my family story, my grandfather, Julius Kenneth Deane was born in Graham co 6 June 1875 at the home of cousins of my great-grandfather (John Kenneth Deane). I have also been told that the two above Charles & Fred were descended from the "cousin" of my John Kenneth. I know that John K.'s father was George W. of Yancey (later Mitchell) Co. How is my family related to the Graham group? Who is the common ancestor? I am trying to find the parents of George, above, born about 1802 in VA, who was a blacksmith in the 1850 YAncey Co census. He had a daughter Amanda. Is this the 106 yr old in the cemetery?
Thank you in advance for any help. Mary Leigh (Deane)Boisseau
