I am a Deer Descendant.My 2nd great grandfather was David Deer b. 1820.He was born in Suffolk Co., England and married Harriet Smith in England about 1854/55.They immigrated to Ontario from England in 1857 on the Ship Christianna.They settled first in Proton, Ontario, then went to Collingwood, Ontario.They had five children:Susan, George, John, Eliza (or Elizabeth) and Mary Elizabeth (my great grandmother).
You caught my interest saying that one of your Deer's married a Clark.My Deer family came from England with the Charles Clarke family.Charles married my great grandmother's sister, Sophia Smith.I have Clarke relatives still living in Ontario, but I'm told some went to the states.
I have your John E. Deer married to Louisa Warren in my database.I added them thinking there might be a chance that I would find a link somewhere to my Deer's.What I have on him is very scanty so I thought I would check with you for more information on him and his family.
Do you know whether any of your Deer's came from Ontario or had family in Ontario?I believe some of my Deer's went to the states, but to where, I haven't a clue.I just thought I would ask.
