I am researching Philip Dean from Franklin County NC, a soldier from Franklin County NC. I have his 1843 pension application filed by his widow Mary Sally CAPPS DEAN in Warren County NC which was the closest Court to her home.
They married in 1777
He went off to war in 1778
He died in 1818
I believe this Philip to be a brother of Robert and Sterling DEAN because I have probate records all filed in the same court on the same day 10 March 1834 stating they all died intestate and naming the same heirs at law- Cooper Dean and Hearty Hamm. Children of Robert Dean.
Why Mary Sally was not named is unknown to me as she was living at the time.
If they had children, I am not aware of it.
I would like to connect with people researching these DEANS
