Dean Family Relatives

I'm searching for any information related to Perry Dean and Cora Dean, especially the parents of Perry Dean and Cora Dean. I'm also interested in finding any relatives associated with the Dean family. Perry Dean was born Jan 5th, 1878 and died November 26th 1961. Cora Dean (Wright) was born March 1st 1879 and died Jan 31st, 1961.

They married in Fort Fairfield on 16 December 1897; the record on ancestry.com has the wrong parent info attached for a marriage in Old Town, Penobscot County (would be the reverse of the record paper)

From the birth records:

Cora's parents: Manual WRIGHT, born Houlton; residing Fort Fairfield and Phoebe FLANNERY, born and residing Fort Fairfield

Perry's parents: George DEAN, born & residing Fort Fairfield and Carrie BEVOE?, born & residing Fort Fairfield
(Perry was born 4 January 1878)

I recently saw your message board post from February of 2011 on ancestry.com that you were looking for information about Perry Dean and Cora Wright and finding any relatives associated with them. I am a great grandson of Perry and Cora, and I have also been looking for information about them.
Contrary to what is listed on their record of marriage and on Perry's delayed record of birth, I believe that Perry was born Perry Cyr/Sear, the son of John Cyr of Limestone and either Martha J. Dean or her sister Carrie Dean of Fort Fairfield. I have been trying to accumulate sufficient proof of this, and I think I'm finally at that point. I am a patrilineal descendent of Perry, and therefore share his Y-DNA. I recently found the Cyr DNA Project under the auspices of Family Tree DNA, and my DNA results very closely match those of several of the Cyr descendents of a Pierre Sire from France. I am currently finishing up a document that summarizes in greater detail the information that I have accumulated on Perry Dean and my rationale for why his father was John Cyr.

Hi Bob,

I am intrigued by your very reasonable explanation on who was the father of Perry Dean. I am working on this branch of the family for a woman who is a granddaughter of Perry Dean. I have seen the delayed birth record and accept that Carrie Dean is probably his mother. Her name is given as Carrie Bevoe, which is close to Carrie's married name, Devoe. Since the information on the birth record was given by an Esther Webster (not a family member as far as I know), I think she just misspelled Carrie's married name. Carrie married Octave Devoe almost 2 years after Perry's birth, so the undated delayed record was probably written after that. Since George Dean is Carrie's father, it seems odd to use his name as Perry's father. It appeared to me to be a cover-up.

I am wondering if you have finished the document you spoke of that summarizes your information. I would be very interested in your conclusions. I think the matching Y chromosome DNA is a key piece of evidence and may even be conclusive.
