RR, With your hands so FULL, I hate to ask for your help. I am trying to connect my Deans. I know that several Abneys married Deans from the SC family. We cannot connect my gg-gf. He is John Marion Dean b 1831 Ga. The Census records say his parents were from SC. He came to Al then La and married 1858 in La. Do you have any Abney/Deans that came to La? Thanks for any help or leads. Penny Dean Daye....born and raised in La!
