Jacob Deaner was my great, great, great, great grandfather. He married Sarah Gunnall. The lineage is Jacob, George Deaner, Patrick Henry Deaner, George Deaner, Calvin Deaner, Gregory Deaner, Jacob Deaner, Paul Deaner did extensive genealogy on the family. According to him Jacob owned 40 +- acres across the road from Patrick Henry the statesmen. I named my son Jacob as a namesake out of respect for my ancestor. I would be willing to try to answer questions if you are still curious. I live adjacent to George Deaners estate which was a part of a larger tract he and his sons occupied in the late 19th and early 20th century. There were 5 boys and 4 girls in my great grandfathers family. He married Emma Layne. My father is dead but I remember him researching and I have remembered a lot. I also believe my mother has Paul's extensive research documents. He went to the Deaner reunions with me as a child.
