Help! I received an E-mail from a very nice lady regarding John Deen [Joshua, John?] and his first wife, Ruth[Nash] Deen. Ruth Nash Deen was born perhaps c1780 Va? NC? TN? and died between 1831 and 1840 in Tennessee. There are many unanswered questions regarding the death of Ruth, although it seems her date of death may have been much later than previously thought. The enumeration of individuals included in the John Deen household in 1840 indicates that Ruth MAY have been alive in 1840???
I received the email from this individual just prior to Thanksgiving when I was preparing toleave town for a couple of weeks. I promised to reply when I returned ... HOWEVER, I have looked high and low for her message and can't find it anywhere.
If you contacted me about this couple just before Thanksgiving this year, will you please contact me again.
