Penny,This is the one son of George Dean that I have nothing on, save for his DOB, and POB (the latter which is also in question, as the family was still in Edgefield for the 1830 Fed. Census, and who knows when they got to Newton Co., GA?).
I have seen several online trees in which he is listed, and as I remember, one family (perhaps the Knights?) has his name as Azariah, and "Ozzy" or "Ozzie/Asa" - in parentheses. He was probably named for his great uncle, Azariah Abney, son of Nathaniel and brother of John. Most all of these trees have errors regarding the whole family, anyway, and I don't trust any of them (or any other online tree) to any degree. Maybe you could check the CSA Muster Rolls for his name and any additional information(?) Otis
