DESCENDANTS OF JOHN DEAN

Generation No. 1
1. JOHN DEAN was born in TN. He married MARY CARMACK.

Child of JOHN DEAN and MARY CARMACK is:

2. i. EZEKIEL DEAN, b. December 30, 1835, Lee County, VA; d. May 18, 1921, Owsley Co., KY.

Ezekiel's parent's information is coming from a death certificate I have for Ezekiel Dean. I know that the census records for 1870, 1880, and 1900 Owsley Co., KY, which have been annotated, have that he was born in VA and that his parents are John Dean and Mary Crank; however, I am inclined to go by this death certificate. Jesse Dean, his son, is the informant. The actual census records (which I do have) do not list his parents and we cannot assume that the person transcribing these records is correct or incorrect. I have tried contacting the person who actually transcribed these census records. This person will not return my calls or answer my mail. If anyone has any documented information pertaining to Ezekiel's parents, besides the annotated census records, please contact me. I am not opposed to changing my records if actual proof of his parentage can be proven. Until then, I will be leaving my records as is. Thank you.
