Hi,thank you so much for the information. I did find a several male DEPUTYS in Wood Co.,Va. from abt.1800-1830.I will tell you my DEPUTY was Sarah aka Sally DEPUTY who married a man named GLAZE 1814 in Wood Co.,Va. I also found another Sarah DEPUTY who married a William Turner in Wood Co.,Va. However,it's said she died after the birth of her first child,perhaps during childbirth. Sarah GLAZE,widow,can be found on the 1880 Ohio census,born Delaware in 1796.He husband GLAZE died 1880 Ohio. She died in 1881 in Ohio. We descend from one her sons,born 1826 Va.,died 1920 Oh.Found her maiden name DEPUTY/DEPTY on another son's 1911 Ohio death certificate.
