I'm trying once again....I had typed some info, but must have hit something wrong and either lost it or sent it incomplete...Here goes: Wm. Deal and Mary Polly Deal married ?
Wm. b. ca 1780, NC and Mary P. b. ca 1822, Md. (am looking for their info backward)...
Their children (that I know of):
William married Rhoda Kell 6/9/1836, Gilmer Co., Ga. - Wm. b.ca. 1809, N.C. Rhoda b. ca. 1820, Ga.
Anthony m. Sohpia ? place unkn
Anth b. ca. 1810, N.C. Sophia b.ca. 1820, N.C.
Joseph m. Lucy M.(Missouri?) place unkn
Josep b. ca. 1811 Lucy b. ca. 1814 Missouri
JACOB m. Sarah C. Mullinaux 1/10/1836, Gilmer Co., Ga
JAC b. ca 1813, NC Sarah b.ca. 1822, GA.
(I will list their children later)
Henry ma. Perlmeo ? place unkn
Henry b.ca. 1824,NC Perl b.ca. 1827, NC
John (Peter?)Deal m. Melinda Flinn 3/17/1844, Gilmer Co., Ga.
John b.ca. 1824, NC Melinda b.ca. 1824, NC
Martin m. Nancy Coffee 4/22/1849, Gilmer Co.,Ga.
I'm not sure if Anth, Joseph, Henry, Martin are brothers to Wm, Jacob, John, but they all lived in the Gilmer Co. area at one time. If anyone knows, let me know.
Jacob Sarah had at least 10 children all born in Ga. presumably Elijay, Gilmer Co. area (1850 1860 census)
1. Elizabeth C. b.ca. 1838(out of house by 1860); 2. Eliza A. b. ca. 1840 (out of house by 1860); 3. Sarah A. b.ca. 1841; 4. John W.(William)[my gr grandfather] b.ca. 1843; 5. James M or H b.ca. 1845; 6. Permelia J. b.ca. 1847; 7. Mary R or E b. Apr 1850 (7 mos @ 1850 census; 8. Daniel M. b.ca. 1852; 9. Jacob F. b.ca. 1858; 10. Calvin L. b.ca. 1859
This 1860 census was taken on 6/20/1860, so Calvin may have just turned 1 yr.
My Line: Wm. Polly ---Jacob Sarah ---John William Mary Frances Helms ----Benjamin Jacob (their youngest child) Edna Mae Minshew ---Jacob Benjamin (my father) Norma Delilah (Dee) Sparks ----Rebecca Yvette Deal John Baylor Van Cleve.
After 1860 census, I do not find Jacob Sarah and family in Georgia again. Only Wm. Rhoda and John Melinda (Linda) are still in Gilmer Co. Ga. The family says that John Wm.(my gr grandfather) parents were Jacob Sally Smith. Never been able to document "Smith" anywhere. Maybe they moved on to Oklahoma like in your line, as the only other Jacob Deal was Jacob Deal's (my gr gr grandfather) son, Jacob F. Have always wanted to know who my gr grandfather's (John Wm.) siblings were married to and what happened to them. My grandfather (whom I never knew)Benjamin "Ben" Jacob Deal was born in Spring Place, Ga. which is where the Cherokee Headquarters were (John Ross House stands). This is why I find the Cherokee connection so interesting.
Let me know if any of this helps and if you have any other info.
