Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, all the info I have is His father was William Deaver;Mother Celia Brock, & Alonza was born in 1875, beleived to be born in Duplin county (eastern N.C.) He had a brother named John R. I have run across info on an Alanzo Deaver, born in Greene count, NCat about the same time, but all other info for that particular fellow do not match at all. Any help you run across will be appreciated. You can contact me at email@example.com anytime. Thanks, Jim Deaver.
