For us who try very hard to correctly document our family records, countless sites, as well as records on Ancestry.com. have been created that lump several unrelated Dean families together.Too, there are the many who simplycopy whatever again and again which perpetuates the misinformation.
A large number of sites show the parents of John M. Dean of Lowndes Co., AL as John Dean & Elizabeth Minton. ÊI have proved beyond doubt that those parents belong to another John Dean who was of Washington Co., GA and then to AL in 1808, plus that inof is supported by a Y-DNA test. ÊThe family of John M. Dean shows John's wife as Nancy Dean and her parents as Thomas Mathis and Mary Rutherford. Again, I have proved Êbeyond doubt that those "parents" belong to another Nancy Dean who never lived in Alabama. ÊFurther, documents support that proof, as well as Y-DNA tests.
Thanks again and again to all of you who work hard to keep your family records as free as possible from being littered with false info.
Too, if anyone is a descendant of John M. Dean then you are invited to participate in a Y-DNA test and join a great group of people.
