I have been able to trace my great-great-grandfather back to a family who may have owned him and his father and/or mother. My GGG's name was Moses Deans, his owner was John Deans and I believe that John Deans' father's name was also John. John Deans Jr.'s mother's surname was Cooper. Moses Deans was staying with a Cooper family in 1870 in Nash County. I would like to know if anyone has any information about the Deans or Cooper families, black or white, in Nash County, NC.
