Ruben Deer (b. KY ca 1824) was either a pastor or JP who performed at least one HARD*STER family marriage in Missouri ca 1850s. I believe that his wife's name was Elizabeth, and children's names were James, Rebecca, Martha and Nancy.
He lived adjacent to my family, in Pulaski Co., MO, in 1850 and 1860. Additional information on his family would be welcome as well as any known connections to the HARD*STER family. Thank you.
