DEAN

Announcement: Larry Dean, of Vancouver, Washington, U.S.A., is conducting a Dean Surname Y-DNA Project (see http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ladeanxx/dnaresults.html) to examine connections between groups of Deans in the U.S. and Canada. He has located three known male-line descendants, through three different sons, of our ancestor John Dean (1754-1827), who appear in his results as subjects 1I, 5T, and 6E. All belong to the R1b1a2 haplogroup. In his analysis, Larry writes: “Based on their pedigree information, subjects 1I, 5T and 6E are descended from John Dean who emigrated from New Jersey to Canada. The 33/37 match between subjects 1I and 5T does meet FTDNA’s criteria for a match, but their four mismatches are more than one might expect for a common ancestor only four or five generations back.” The two closest matches with known English origins (subjects 2U and 4G) both come from Yorkshire.

Larry Dean has located a Dean (his subject 2M) who is a close genetic match to the John Dean descendant, but who on chronological grounds is probably not directly descended from John Dean. Based on information provided by Larry Dean and by the family of the new test-subject, we have started a web page entitled A second Dean line to assist in the exploration of this lineage.


Introduction

Our original point of departure in compiling these notes was Cecelia and Roland Botting’s The Deans of Gainsboro Township (hereafter DGT),[1] a booklet of 34 pages which they published some time in the early- to mid-1970s. The present notes incorporate much of this work (including all of the male lines), but do not entirely supersede it. The Bottings clearly had access to the bible record which we reproduce at the end of these notes,[2] as well as other family papers which we have been unable to identify. Unfortunately, our acquaintance with the Bottings began near the end of their lives, leaving insufficient opportunity for obtaining clarification from them of some points of doubt in their work. The copy of DGT owned by the Niagara Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society contains a number of valuable handwritten annotations which we believe to be by the local historian Corlene Taylor. We have incorporated many of these comments and suggestions below.
    The first edition of R. Janet Powell’s Annals of the Forty: Loyalist and Pioneer Families of West Lincoln, 1783-1833, 10 vols. (Grimsby, 1950-59), 4:46-9, has a rather weak account of this Dean family, which although improved somewhat in the second edition (19__), 4:54-7, treats mainly of the family of John Dean, Jr., a son of the Lincoln County settlers, rather than the first immigrant generation. This would appear to have been the main, if not only, source, of the brief account of the Dean family in pp. 131-32 of Eugene A. Singer & John Singer, A Singer family of colonial Vermont and Canada, including the Overholt, Staats, Hunsberger, Slough, Will, Hertzel, Terryberry, Dufford, Swackhammer, Snyder, Freas, Moore, Flock, Dean, Boddecker and Dooley families, 3rd ed. (Lahaina, Hawaii: privately published, 2001).

1. John Dean, of Gainsborough Tp., Lincoln Co., Upper Canada (now Ontario), is said to have been born 1 March 1754, died 19 September 1827, and was buried in St. Anns Presbyterian churchyard, Gainsborough Tp. As “John Deane” he married 29 March 1781, in the Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, New Germantown (now Oldwick), Tewksbury Tp., Hunterdon Co., New Jersey,[3] Margaret Flach, born ca. 17 March 1752,[4] died 6 March 1839, “aged 86 years, 11 months, 19 days” (per her tombstone), and buried with her husband in St. Anns Presbyterian churchyard,[5] daughter of Andreas Flach, of Flocktown, German Valley (now Long Valley), Roxbury Tp. (in the portion subsquently set off as Washington Tp.), Morris Co., N.J., by the latter’s wife Anna Maria Schütterlin.[6]
     As to the question of where John Dean was before his marriage in New Jersey in 1781, we have found no clue, and unfortunately the New Jersey census returns for 1790 and 1800 are both lost. Considering the date of his birth, one would expect that John Dean would have served in the Revolutionary War; and it is possible he was the Private John Dean who served in Captain Albert Opdycke’s Company of the Second Regiment of Hunterdon County militia (the county in which our subject was married), and also in the State Troops.[7] As he is said by family tradition to have come from Fox Hill, in Roxbury (now Washington) Tp. aforesaid, when he brought his family to Canada in July 1801,[8] there is no reason to doubt that this man was the John Dean who in 1783 bought 112 acres of land between Fox Hill and what is now Naughrightville, and sold them to Andrew Shangle in 1801.[9] The lot, which can be seen on the map facing p. 146 of Chambers’s Early Germans of New Jersey, was only a short distance south-by-southeast of Flocktown. The original deed of this sale, dated 13 May 1783, for the land and premises, which were purchased of a Conrad Bunn and his wife Mary for £150, gives a very detailed description of the tract, near Tanner’s Brook, but merely describes John Dean as of Roxbury Tp., without mentioning his occupation, and contains no signature or mark from him.[10] A rate taken the following year reveals this John Dean as one of the more substantial freeholders in Roxbury Tp., being assessed 10s. 9d. on 200 acres of “improved land,” with 3 horses and 2 cattle. This man’s household then consisted of 3 whites and no slaves, and this information, so far as it goes, is consistent with our supposition that he was identical with our John Dean, whose first child was born in 1782 and whose second was not born until September of 1784.[11] He is presumably also the John Dean of Roxbury Tp. whose name appears in the 1793 list of Morris County freeholders,[12] and in the list of Morris County militia made in the same year.[13]
     John Dean of Roxbury Tp. must, however, be distinguished from a closely contemporary John Dean, who baptized five children in the First Presbyterian Church, Morristown, Morris Tp., Morris Co., on 23 October 1782; for the birthdates of the latter’s children range between 1772 and 1781, overlapping with those of our John Dean.[14] Other Deans are also found in the Morristown area in the late eighteenth century, but we have not found sufficient data to form a connected pedigree.[15]
     John Dean (presumed to be the one of Roxbury Tp.) settled with his family on lot 26, conc. 6, of Gainsborough Tp., Upper Canada, which later became part of Lincoln Co.[16] The date of their arrival is traditionally given as July of 1801,[17] which is in pretty good agreement with the entries in the 1842 census for their sons Philip and Andrew, giving their periods of residence in the province as 42 and 41 years, respectively. “John Deen Senr.” is listed on concession 6, lot 26 of Gainsborough Tp. in the 1812 voters’ list of Lincoln County.
     Other contemporary Deans are found in the vicinity of Gainsborough, but there is no clear evidence of any relationship to them. We do know, however, that Margaret (Flach) Dean had been preceeded to Canada by her sister, Christina Flach, wife of Andrew Hansel (or Hansler), who had come to Thorold Township by 1799. The name of “Margaret Dean, widow” appears in an 1833 list of the members of Gainsborough Presbyterian Church.[18]
     Known issue:

  1. Mary Dean, born 30 January 1782, died 18 March 1864. She married by 1803, Henry Snyder, born 12 March 1778, died 2 May 1850 [or 1849?], son of Adam Snyder, of St. Anns, by the latter’s wife Ann Freas.[19] They settled on lot 18, conc. 6 of Gainsborough. DGT lists eleven children for them. Of these, Margaret Snyder (1815-1896), wife of Ephraim Singer (1814-1867), was the great-grandmother of A. Singer (1921-), one of the co-authors of the Singer genealogy cited above.[20]
  2. 2John Dean, Jr., born 11 September 1784.
  3. 3Philip Dean (twin), born 17 April 1787.
  4. Elizabeth Dean (twin),[21] born 17 April 1787, died 1872, and buried in St. Anns Presbyterian churchyard. She married 19 June 1803 (by Robert Nelles, J.P. for Niagara),[22] her sister Mary’s husband’s brother, Joseph Snyder,[23] of Gainsborough Tp., born 24 December 1780, died 1866, son of Adam Snyder, of St. Anns, aforesaid, by the latter’s wife Ann Freas. Annals of the Forty, 8:63, lists three children for them.
  5. Barbara Dean, born 16 June 1791 at Fox Hill, died 27 June 1864, and buried in St. Anns Presbyterian churchyard. Barbara Dean and John Kennedy She married 11 February 1816, John Kennedy (III), born 4 March 1787 in New Jersey, died 18 April 1874, and buried in St. Anns Presbyterian churchyard, son of John Kennedy (Jr.) by the latter’s wife Charity Wurts (see our forthcoming KENNEDY page). They were direct ancestors of the present writer.

2. John 2 Dean,[24], Jr., of Erin Tp., Wellington Co., and of Cayuga Tp., Haldimand Co., son of John Dean and Margaret Flach, was born 11 September 1784, and died 22 May 1859, and buried (as “John Deen”) in Smuck Cemetery, Bayham Township, Elgin County.[25] Our account of his family relies heavily upon his family bible record, reproduced at the end of these notes. He married 12 August 1806, Anna Mingle, born 15 March 1790, died 10 June 1856, and buried in St. Anns Presbyterian churchyard; she was perhaps a daughter of John Mingle,[26] of ____, by his wife Catherine Snyder. The name of “John Dean Jr.” appears in an 1820 list of subscribers in Clinton and Grimsby townships to the building of a Presbyterian church.[27] “John Deen Junr.” is listed on concession 6, lot 25 of Gainsborough Tp. in the 1812 voters’ list of Lincoln County, and he also at the same location appears in the 1816 list, but without the designation “Junr.” John Dean first appears in the censuses and assessment rolls of Erin Tp., Wellington Co., in 1826, not being mentioned in that of 1825:[28]

John Dean’s assessements were consistently amongst the three highest in the township. John Dean was himself an assessor in 1832 and 1833. Between 1834 and 1839 (there were no censuses taken between those years) John Dean divested himself of some of his land: the 200 acres of lot 21 in the 2nd concession to his son Thomas A. Dean, and the 100 acres of lot 11w in the 10th concession to his son John. The 1839 census-assessement, listing John Dean “Sr.,” as he is now called, gives his family’ religion as Church of Scotland. The 1840 census entry purporting to be for John Dean Jr. presents a family composition completely incompatible with that given for the son in 1839, and is probably as mistake for the missing household of the father. The 1840 census lists a James Dean, unknown to DGT, in the immediate vicinity of John Dean, and it is possible that this man was an otherwise unknown son of the latter.
    It is clearly the family of John Dean Sr. which figures in the following extracts from the early records of Gainsborough Presbyterian Church:[29]

New members
1842  John Dean married man
      Ann Dean, wife of John Dean
1843  Thomas Allen Dean, single
      Eliza Dean, single

All four entries are annotated “to Canborough Pres. Church 1845,” indicating that these persons had transferred there, Canborough Township lying in the part of Haldimand County which was later designated the “Monck District” in the 1881 census. However, it is not in Canborough that John Dean and his wife are found in the 1852 census, but rather in Cayuga Tp. North, also in Haldimand Co.; he is called a farmer and the religion of entire family given as Wesleyan Methodists, and living with them were their three youngest sons, Andrew, Ephraim, and William, an Eliza “Deane,” aged 30, who was possibly their daughter Eliza (Dean) Kirby, and an Almeda “Deane” who was perhaps the latter’s daughter, as the two of them are listed together at the end of the entry, after all the sons, although Eliza was older than they.[30] Issue (per bible record):

  1. Matilda (or Mahala?) Dean, born 12 February 1807. She married 22 March 1826, Jackson Ismond, and had issue. In 1830 he held 16 cultivated acres and 84 uncultivated acres in the 9th concession of Erin Tp., Wellington Co., and had a household consisting of 1 male over 16, 1 female over 16, no males under 16, and 1 female under 16.[31] Two years later, he is listed in the 1832 assessment of the same township at lot 12 East, concession 9 of Erin Tp., Wellington Co., this time with a household consisting of 1 male over 16, 1 female over 16, no males under 16, and 2 females under 16.[32] We have not located this couple in the LDS index to the 1881 census.
  2. Thirza Dean, born 21 August 1808. She married 11 November 1828, John Shingler, and had issue. In 1830 he held 2 cultivated acres and 98 uncultivated acres in the 10th concession of Erin Tp., Wellington Co., and had a household consisting of 1 male over 16, 1 female over 16, and no-one under 16.[33] Two years later, as “John Shungler,” he is listed in the 1832 assessment of the same township at lot 13 North, concesstion 10, with a household consisting of 1 male over 16, 1 female over 16, 1 male under 16, and no females under 16.[34] The also appear in the 1881 census of Erin Tp., which calls him a farmer; her name is erroneously given as Eliza, and her age is slightly exagerated, but the presence of an Absalom Dean in the household would seem to corroborate the identification.[35] Only known issue (per 1881 census):
    1. Wellington Shingler, born 1844-45 (aged 36 in 1881); still living unmarried with his parents in 1881.
  3. 6Thomas Allen Dean, born 16 February 1811.
  4. John Dean (III), born 21 May 1813, living 1871. He married 7 October 1834, Mary Ann Baker, liivng 1871. Some time between 1834 and 1839 he acquired all of the 100 acres of lot 11w in the 10th concession of Erin Tp. which had been his father’s, for which he was taxed £56/4 in 1839; at the time his household consisted of 1 adult male, 1 adult female, 1 boy under 16 and 1 girl under 16. In 1840 he was taxed £51; the census portion of the record contains an entry supposedly for “John Dean Jr.” but with a completely incompatible family composition, and it is probably a mistake for the household of his father.[36] Clearly therefore John Dean had issue, although DGT does not show any. In the 1871 census John Dean, who is called a farmer, is found with his wife and a daughter, Hannah.[37] We have not located him in the LDS index to the 1881 census. Only known child:
    1. Hannah J. Dean, born 1851-52 (aged 19 in 1871), still living unmarried with her parents in 1871.
  5. Mary Dean, born 22 February 1815, not found in 1881 census. She married 14 March 1837, John Havens, born ca. 14 December 1815, died 7 September 1858, “aged 42 years, 8 months, 23 days,” who seems to have been a son of William Havens, Jr., of Grantham and Clinton townships, by the latter’s wife Elizabeth Schram.[38] He may have been the John Havens who settled on lot 2, concession 7 of Caistor Tp., Lincoln Co. Their daughter, Sarah Catherine Havens, born ca. 11 September 1841, died 22 December 1861, “aged 20 years, 3 months, 11 days,” wife of ____ Yemen, is mentioned in the Dean family bible.
  6. Israel Dean, born 1 August 1817, died 15 June 1818.
  7. Sarah Dean, born 4 July 1819, died 13 September 1882, but not found in the LDS index to the 1881 census. She married 25 September 1838, Jeremiah Hilts, born 1814-15 (aged 37 in 1852) in Ontario, living 1859, son of Joseph Hilts, of Ballinafad, Erin Tp., Wellington Co., by the latter’ wife Sarah Johnson.[39] She was received into membership in St. Anns Presbyterian Church on 9 April 1843. They were enumerated next to her parents in the 1852 census of Cayuga Tp. North, Haldimand Co., in which he is called a farmer, and the family’s religion given as Wesleyan Methodist; also in their houshold was a William Hilts, aged 25, who is identifiable from the 1988 Durham genealogy as Jeremiah’s younger brother.[40] Known issue (three youngest children, and all marriage data, from the 1988 Durham genealogy):
    1. Sarah Anne Hilts, born 1838-39 (aged 13 in 1852), died 1893; married 12 October 1858 in Elgin Co.,[41] Nelson G. Campell.
    2. Mary Anne Hilts, born 1840-41 (aged 11 in 1852), died 1863; married 1 August 1863 in Elgin Co.,[42] John McKinney. Her surname is given as “Hiltz” in her marriage record.
    3. Eliza Jane Hilts, born 1842-43 (aged 9 in 1852), died 1863; married 9 August 1863 in Elgin Co.,[43] Alvin C. Moss.
    4. Charlotte Hilts, born 1844-45 (aged 7 in 1852); no marriage shown in Durham genealogy.
    5. Matilda Catherine Hilts, born 1847-48 (aged 4 in 1852), died 1893; married 26 December 1867 in Elgin Co.,[44] Thomas J. Sutherland.
    6. Flora Alice Hilts, born 1849-50 (aged 2 in 1852); said in the Durham genealogy to have married Abraham H. Yokom, although there is no such entry in the Ontario Marriage Index, 1858-1886.
    7. Elizabeth Hilts, born 1852; married said in the Durham genealogy to have married George Yokom, although there is no such entry in the Ontario Marriage Index, 1858-1886.
    8. Priscilla Hilts, born ca. 1854; no marriage shown in Durham genealogy.
    9. James M. Hilts, born ca. 1859; no marriage shown in Durham genealogy.
  8. Ann Eliza Dean, born 12 March 1822, died 15 October 1861. She married 25 September 1842, Robert Kirby. If she was widowed by 1852, she may account for the Eliza “Deane” (aged 30) and Almeda “Deane” (aged 3) found in her parents’ household in the census of that year. It is also possible that she and her husband had separated, as a Robert Kirby, aged 30, farmer, whose marital status is given as single, appears nearby in the 1852 census.[45]
  9. Martha Catherine Dean, born 2 June 1824, died 1 May 1829.
  10. Andrew Dean, born 27 December 1826, probably living 1871. DGT does not show a marriage for him. He is presumably Andrew Dean was still living unmarried with his parents in 1852, when he was a laborer. Andrew Dean, unmarried, aged 44 years, is found in the 1871 census of Erin Tp., in which he is called a laborer, and is found as a lodger in the house of John Shingleton, a very close neighbor of John Dean (III) above.[46] No Andrew Dean of the right age has been found in the LDS index to the 1881 census of Ontario.
  11. 7Ephraim Dean, born 11 August 1829, died 28 March 1862.
  12. William A. Dean, born 21 March 1832 in Erin Tp., died 24 March 1886 in Clinton Tp., Lincoln Co., “aged 53 years and 2 days,” of Bright’s disease.[47] He married 6 April 1857, Elizabeth Culp, born 1839-40 (aged 41 in 1881) in Ontario. William A. Dean and his wife Elizabeth are found in the 1861 census of Gainsborough Tp. in the household of his cousin William Dean (no. 3.i below); with them were children Henry (aged 3) and Amanda (aged 1). They later appear with four children in the 1881 census of Clinton Tp., he being called a farmer, and the family’s religion being given as Disciple of Christ.[48] His death record also gives his occupation as farmer and religion as “Disciple.” Known issue:
    1. Henry Dean, born 1857-58 (aged 3 in 1861), no longer living with his parents in 1881.
    2. Amanda Dean, born about 1859 (aged 1 in 1861, 27 in 1886) in Erin Tp. She is said to have married (1) ____ Calter. She married (2) 8 Dec 1886 in Clinton Tp.,[49] her probable kinsman, Robert Burwell Culp, born 1862-63 (aged 23 in 1886) in Rainham Tp., son of Isaac and Elizabeth (____) Culp. At the time of their marriage, the record of which names both sets of parents, both parties were resident in Clinton Tp., and he was a day-laborer; her name is given as Amanda Calter, widow, and the witnesses were Aaron Culp and James Dean, both of Clinton Tp.
    3. Dudley Dean, born 1869-70 (aged 11 in 1881).
    4. John Dean, born 1871-73 (aged 9 in 1881).
    5. Charles Dean, born 1875-76 (aged 5 in 1881).
    6. Irvine Dean, born 1879-80 (aged 1 in 1881).

3. Philip2 Dean,[50] of Clinton Tp., son of John Dean and Margaret Flach, was born 17 April 1787 in New Jersey, died (testate) 1872.[51] He married probably by 1813, Catherine Book, born 21 August 1791 in the U.S., died 29 December 1870, and buried on their farm, daughter of Conrad Book,[52] of Grimsby, formerly of New Jersey, by his wife Ann Sophia ____.
     Philip Dean was a private in the 4th Regiment of Lincoln Co. Militia in May 1813.[53] He later became a farmer, and purchased lots 12 in concessions 3 and 4 of Clinton Tp.[54] As “Philip Deen” he is listed on concession 8, lot 3 of Grimsby Tp. in the 1816 voters’ list of Lincoln County. He is listed in the 1828 census of Gainsborough Tp., with a household (including himself) consisting of 3 males over 16, 1 female over 16, 3 males under, and 5 females under; thus he evidently had ten children at that time.[55] He is also listed in the 1842 census of Clinton Tp., with a wife and family of ten children (not named), his farm of 150 acres being part of lot 12 in the 4th concession; he is stated to have been in the province 42 years.[56] The 1852 census shows him and his wife with two of their children, Philip and Jane.[57] His will, proved in 1872, has not been seen by us.
     DGT’s treatment of his family is in disagreement with the 1852 census, missing known children and attributing others to him who were born much too late to be his. A more plausible listing is supplied in Annals of the Forty,[58] which is based on information furnished by a direct descendant, Mrs. Emily Book, of Beamsville; this says he had fifteen children, and lists eleven who survived infancy. The family burying ground, a corner of the farm on the rise of the hill east of Beamsville, known as the Quarry road, was transcribed in 1961, and the present compiler has a copy thereof in his possession.[59]
     Following Annals of the Forty, his children (apart from four who died in infancy) were:

  1. Margaret Dean, born 18 June 1812, and buried at St. Anns. She apparently married John W. Snyder, son of William Snyder, of Gainsborough Tp., by the latter’s wife Elizabeth Lindaberry.[60]
  2. Enos Dean, born 24 March 1814. He married before 1836, Diana Cooper, daughter of Solomon and Sophia (____) Cooper. They had the following children:[61]
    1. Buryl Franklin Dean born 1836; married Eliza Jane Dennis, died in 1922 at Wheatly, Ontario. They had issue.
    2. Hannibal Rathburn Dean, Sr., born 11 July 1837 in Caistor Tp., Lincoln Co., Ontario; married in 1861, Catherine Hewson/Houston, died 30 April 1924 in Vassar Tp., Tuscola Co., Michigan, daughter of John and Mary Phidora (____) Hewson. They had issue.
    3. Sulvan/Saul/Solomon Dean, born 1840; married Fanny Hewson, sister to the wife of his brother Hannibal.
    4. Harriet Sophia Dean, born 1842; married in 1861, John Allen, died 9 December 1882 in Tuscola Co. Michigan. They had issue.
    5. Bayham Dean, born 1844.
    6. Purvis Enos Dean, born 1848; married Anna ____.
    7. Stephen Dean.
    8. Elmer Dean.
    9. Catherine Dean.
    10. Barintha Dean.
  3. Elizabeth/Ann Dean, born 25 November 1815. She married Joseph DeWitt, born 11 September 1842, died 12 October 1853, son of Jacob DeWitt, of Tapleytown, Saltfleet Tp.[62] They lived on the west side of Quarry Road, Beamsville.
  4. Daniel Ward Eastman Dean, born 2 October 1817, living 1876. He was named after the Rev. D.W. Eastman, a minister of the church of Scotland, who came to Upper Canada from the Presbytery of Morristown, N.J., in 1801, to take up a post at Beaverdams, in Thorold Tp., where he served until 1815. Consequently D.W.E. Dean acquired the nickname “Priest,” and is actually so called in the 1876 atlas of Lincoln Co., which lists him as the owner of 50 acres in lot 15, concession 2 of Clinton Tp.[63] He has not been found in the LDS index to the 1881 census. He married Mary Tufford.
  5. Maria Dean, born 1 May 1821, died 6 February 1875. She married Joseph James, and they lived on part of lot 12, concession 4 of Clinton Tp. He is likely the man of this name, aged 60, found in 1881 census with a much younger wife Roseann, aged 38, who could not possibly have been the mother of his eldest son, Johnson James, aged 27.[64]
  6. Barbara A. Dean, born 17 February 1823, living 1881. She married by licence dated 30 November 1844, John A. Huff, born 1835-36 (aged 45 in 1881) in the U.S., living 1881. They lived on part of lot 12, concession 3 of Clinton Tp. They are found in the 1881 census of Clinton Tp., in which he is called a farmer and the family’s religion is given as Presbyterian.[65] Known issue:
    1. Mary C. Huff, born 1846-47 (aged 29 in 1876) in Clinton Tp. (per her marriage record). She married 13 September 1876 in Clinton Tp.,[66] Anson A. Konkle, born 1850-51 (aged 25 in 1876) in Clinton Tp. (per marriage record), son of William and Eliza (____) Konkle. At the time of their marriage, the record of which names both sets of parents, both parties were of Clinton Tp., and the groom was a farmer; the witnesses were Solomon T. Huff and William A. Wismer, both of Clinton Tp.
    2. Solomon T. Huff, born 1847-48 (aged 26 in 1874) in Clinton Tp. (per marriage record). He married 13 October 1874 in Clinton Tp.,[67] Sophia Amelia Henry, born 1843-44 (aged 30 in 1874) in Clinton Tp. (per marriage record), daughter of James R. Henry and Mary Zimmerman. At the time of their marriage, the record of which names both sets of parents, both parties were resident in Clinton Tp., and the groom was a farmer; the witnesses were Frank Hill and Kinsley Shaw, residences unstated. Solomon T. Huff served as a witness at the wedding of his elder sister Mary C. Huff in 1876.
    3. Lyda [or Lydia?] A. Huff, born 1859-60 (aged 21 in 1881) in Ontario; still living unmarried with her parents in 1881.
  7. Philip Dean, Jr., born 10 March 1825. He was living unmarried with his parents in 1852, but afterward married Julia (or Judy?) Tufford. This was possibly before 1858, as they do not appear in the Ontario Marriage Index, 1858-1869. He has not been found in the LDS index to the 1881 census.
  8. Catherine Dean, born 19 March 1828, died 13 December 1910 at St. Catharines, Lincoln Co., of senile decay, aged over 82 years, her death notice specifically naming her as a daughter of Philip Dean and Catharine Book.[68] She married (probably by 1852) Edwin or Edsom Eddy, born probably in 1823 (aged 58 in 1881, 75 in 1899) in Ireland (per 1881 census and death record), died 21 April 1899 in Clinton Tp., Lincoln Co., of neuralgia of the heart,[69] They lived on part of lot 13, concession 4 of Clinton Tp. As “Edsom Eddy” he is found with his wife and three children in the 1881 census of Clinton Tp., which calls him a farmer and gives the family’s religion as Canadian Presbyterian.[70] However, in DGT and in the record of his death (in which he is again called a farmer) his name is given as Edwin Eddy. Catherine’s death record calls her a widow; the death was reported by R.D. Eddy, of St. Catharines. Known issue (per 1881 census):
    1. William Eddy, born 1854-55 (aged 26 in 1881) in Ontario; still living unmarried with his parents in 1881.
    2. Randolf Eddy, born 1856-57 (aged 24 in 1881) in Ontario; still living unmarried with his parents in 1881. If he is the R.D. Eddy who reported his mother’s death, then he was surely also the Randolf Deloyd Eddy who married 2 May 1883 in North Grimsby Tp.[71] Helen Alvira Russ, born probably in 1856 (aged 44 in 1901, 54 in 1911, 61 in 1917) in Grimsby Tp. (per death record), died 4 September 1917 at St. Catharines, aged 61 years, of carcinoma, daughter of Ezechiel Russ and Margaret Zeller, who are named in her death record.[72] The latter couple was enumerated at the village of Port Dalhousie, Lincoln Co., in the 1901 census,[73] but by 1911 had removed to St. Catharines, where they are found in the census of that year.[74] Issue of Randolf Deloyd Eddy and Helen Alvira Russ:
      1. Lena F. Eddy, born 18 October 1886. She was living with her parents in 1901. She married by 1909, Thomas Walker, born 31 July 1881 in Scotland. They were living in Michigan by 1909. They had seven children, the youngest being Vina Jane Walker, now deceased.[75]
      2. Laura F. Eddy, born 7 July 1888; still living unmarried with her parents in 1901.
    3. Lillian Eddy, born 1862-63 (aged 18 in 1881) in Ontario; still living unmarried with her parents in 1881.
  9. Sarah Jane Dean, born 8 June 1830, living unmarried with her parents in 1852. She married 1 August 1857,[76] Jacob Huffman.
  10. Matthias Dean, born 8 August 1832, died unmarried by 1852.
  11. Hannah Dean, born 20 May 1834, died by 1852.

4. David2 Dean,[77] son of John Dean and Margaret Flach, was born 22 May 1793, died 29 June 1864, and was buried in St. Anns Presbyterian churchyard. He married by 1816, Cornelia Travis, born 28 July 1798, died 5 December 1868, and buried in St. Anns Presbyterian churchyard, daughter of Caleb Travis,[78] of Grimsby Tp., by his wife Susan Merritt. David Dean was a private in the 4th Regiment of Lincoln Co. Militia in May 1813.[79] He appears in the 1852 and 1861 censuses of Clinton Tp. According to DGT, they had twelve children:[80]

  1. Caroline Dean, born 27 September 1816; married Michael Spiece, and had four children.
  2. Darius Dean, born 11 October 1817, still single in 1880, when as Darius Dean, aged 63, millwright, born in Ontario, father born in New Jersey and mother born in Ontario, he appears in a household at White Rock, Huron Co., Michigan, which included his younger brother David, the latter’s son Cyrus, and others; although his brother Davis is shown as the head, it should probably have been Darius or his nephew Cyrus.[81] He is generally stated to have remained unmarried.
  3. 8Andrew Tintern Dean, born 27 September 1819.
  4. 9David Dean, Jr., born 22 June 1820.
  5. Elizabeth Anne Dean, born 5 October 1823, died 29 December 1873, and buried at St. Anns; she married 22 September 1840, John Ennsley, by whom, according to DGT, she had six children.
  6. 10Israel Dean, born 1825.
  7. Susanne Dean, born 1827; married after 1852, Jim Walker. DGT does not state whether they had issue. They have not been found in the LDS index to the 1881 census of Ontario.
  8. Margaret Dean, born 1828. DGT says “she may have been the Margaret Dean who married John W. Snyder,” but shows one of the daughters of this union as married to a man who was older than this Margaret herself. Annals of the Forty more plausibly identifies Snyder’s wife as Margaret Dean, born 1812, daughter of Philip Dean (no. 3).
  9. An infant, born [and died?] 1830.
  10. 11Cyrus S. Dean, born 1831.
  11. An infant, born [and died?] 1833.
  12. 12Aaron Dean, born 11 August 1834.

5. Andrew2 Dean,[82] of Clinton Tp., son of John Dean and Margaret Flach, was born 20 July 1796, died 27 March 1841, and was buried in St. Anns Presbyterian churchyard. He married by 1824, Mary Mingle, born ca. 1798 in Canada, living 1881, daughter of John Mingle,[83] of ____, by his wife Catherine Snyder.
     Andrew Dean was a private in the 4th Regiment of Lincoln Co. Militia in May 1813 and October 1814.[84] He is listed in the 1828 census of Gainsborough Tp. — of which he himself was one of the two enumerators — with a household (including himself) consisting of 1 male over 16, 1 female over 16, 2 males under, and 1 female under; thus he evidently had three children at that time.[85] He is probably the one of this name who as “Andrew Dean, of Gainsborough, yeoman,” served as a bondsman to the 1832 marriage contract of John Mingle (perhaps a kinsman of Andrew’s wife) and Susannah Hansil [i.e. Hansel].[86] In the 1842 census of Clinton Tp. he is listed as a mill owner, resident in the province for 41 years, with a family consisting of a wife and seven children (not named); his property was in the 8th concession but the lot number is illegible.[87] His widow is found in the household of their son Absalom in the 1881 census. DGT lists six children for him:

  1. 13William Dean, born probably 2 June 1823.
  2. Absalom Dean, born 1829-30 (aged 51 in 1881) at St. Anns, Gainsborough Tp., died 11 December 1918 at Vittoria, Charlottesille Tp., Norfolk Co., of senile gangrene, allegedly aged 90 years, 5 months, and 28 days (thus implying a birthdate of about 13 June 1828),[88] and buried in St. Anns Presbyterian Cemetery. He married by 1854, Sarah ____, born 24 February 1834, died 30 June 1863, and buried in St. Anns Cemetery. The 1861 census of Gainsborough Tp. calls him a yeoman.[89] He had removed to Charlotteville Tp., Norfolk Co., by 1881, when the census of that year calls him a farmer and gives the family’s religion as Presbyterian; his marital status is given as married, but probably in error as no wife is shown for him, the only woman in the household of the right age being his sister, Ann Dean.[90] In his death notice, he is specifically called a widower; it further describes him as a farmer, and names his parents as Andrew Dean and Mary Mingle. Known issue:[91]
    1. Mary Dean, born 1853-54 (aged 7 in 1861), but this in conflict with the date of birth of the daughter Rachael.
    2. Rachael Caroline Dean, born 1856 (aged 5 in 1861) in Grimsby Tp, died 1939, called a daughter of Absalom Dean and Sarah ____ in her marriage record. She married 12 November 1876 at Smithville, Lincoln Co., by Canadian Methodist rites,[92] Robert Cosby, born 1854-55 (aged 21 in 1876) in Caistor Tp., son of John Cosby and Mary Ann Hansel, grandson of George Hansel and Sarah Wilkersonk, great-grandson of Andreas/Andrew Hansel and Christina Flach, and great-great-grandson of Andreas Flach and Anna Maria Schüler. At the time of their marriage, the record of which names both sets of parents without however supplying the maiden surnames of their mothers, the groom was of Caistor Tp. and the bride of Clinton Tp., and the groom was a farmer. Known issue:
      1. Clara Bell Cosby, born 19 November 1883 in Lincoln Co.
      2. Oscar Cosby, born 17 June 1887 in Lincoln Co.
      3. Omer Cosby, born 6 July 1889 in Lincoln Co.
    3. William Dean, born ca. 1857 (aged 3 in 1861, 22 in 1879) in Norfolk Co. (per his marriage record); married 29 August 1879 in Mersea Tp., Essex Co.[93] Hannah Plant, born 1858-59 (aged 20 in 1879) in Mersea Tp., daughter of John and Elizabeth (____) Plant. At the time of their marriage, the record of which names both sets of parents, both parties were of Essex County (township not stated), and the groom was a farmer; the witnesses were Thomas Christy and Mar— (illegible) Butler.
    4. Henry Dean, born 1858-59 (aged 2 in 1861).
    5. Philip Dean, born 1862-63 (aged 18 in 1881), the only child still living with his father in 1881.
  3. Emery Dean, born 1 March 1833, died 3 August 1857, and buried at St. Anns. He married before 1856, Frances M. ____, born 10 October 1835, died 27 April 1859, and buried with her husband. DGT lists only one child for them:
    1. Emma Jane Dean, born 26 August 1856, died 26 January 1858, and buried at St. Anns.
  4. Lydia Dean, married Hamilton Nelson. She may not have been his only wife, as a Hamilton Nelson, aged 48 (thus born 1832-33) is found in the 1881 census of Grimsby Tp. with a wife Rachel and three children.[94]
  5. Ann Dean, born 24 July 1836 (per 1901 census, although her age was given as only 40 in 1881), living unmarried with her brother William in 1861, with her brother Absalom in 1881, and again with her brother William in 1901.
  6. Catherine Dean, said to have married ____ Weaver.

6. Thomas Allen3 Dean, son of John Dean and Ann Mingle, was born 16 February 1811, and died 30 April 1870. Some time between 1834 and 1839 he acquired all of the 200 acres of lot 21 in the 2nd concession of Erin Tp. which had been his father’s, for which he was taxed £40 in 1839; the composition of his household is not indicated. The census of the following year makes it clear that he was the only member of his household, while the assessment shows his tax as £48.[95] He married 22 December 1847, Sarah Ann Whitman,[96] born 1828-29 (aged 31 in 1860), who was certainly still alive on 5 August 1854 (the birthdate of their son Calvin, whose marriage record gives the name of his mother as Sarah Ann). They were enumerated in Erin Tp., Wellington Co., in the 1861 census, in which he is called a carpenter.[97] The widow Sarah Dean, with a wildly understated age of 34 years, appears with her children in the 1871 census of Erin Tp., Wellington Co., the family’s religion being given as Episcopal Methodist.[98] We have not found her in the LDS transcription of the 1881 census. DGT shows no issue for Thomas Dean, but we have reconstructed a sizeable family for him. The names he chose for his children are intensely reminiscent of those used in the family of his uncle, Andrew Dean (no. 5 above). Known issue, by one or two wives named Sarah:

  1. Annie Maria Dean, born 1850-51 (aged 11 in 1860, 20 at marriage) in Erin Tp. Described in her marriage record as a daughter of Thomas and Sarah Dean, she married 15 February 1871 in Wellington Co., Charles Ismond, born 1849-50 (aged 21 at marriage) in Erin Tp., son of Thomas and Ann (____) Ismond.
  2. 14Emery Allen Dean, born 5 June 1852 (per a family bible record and the 1901 census) in Erin Village, died 27 March 1939 at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Toronto, aged over 86 years.
  3. Calvin Augustus Dean, born 5 August 1854 (per 1901 census), living 1901. He married 16 August 1887 in Melancthon Township, Grey Co.,[99] Charlotte Gant, born 25 January 1852 (per 1901 census), living 1901, daughter of Louis John Gant and Mary Ann ____. His marriage record names him as a son of Thomas and Sarah Ann Dean. They are found in the 1901 census of Melancthon Tp. with the following children:[100]
    1. Michael Dean, born 9 May 1888.
    2. Mary A. Dean, born 29 April 1890.
    3. Thomas J. Dean, born 27 February 1892.
    4. Peter J. Dean, born 4 March 1896.
  4. Hannah J. Dean, born 1856-57 (aged 4 in 1861, 14 in 1871).
  5. Harmon J. Dean, born 1857-58 (aged 2 in 1861, 13 in 1871).
  6. Absalom W. Dean, born 1862-63 (aged 8 in 1871). Despite the slight discrepancy in their stated ages, he is probably the 17-year-old Absalom Dean found in the household of his uncle and aunt, John and Thirza (Dean) Shingler, in the 1881 census of Erin Tp.[101] He is also, probably, the Absalom Dean, born 3 May 1863, with wife Marey A., born 23 August 1859, found in the 1901 census of Erin Tp.; no children were living with them at the time.[102] Lorine McGinnis Schultze has pointed out to us that he is probably also the Absalom Wellington Dean who died 2 October 1915 at Orten, Erin Tp., Wellington Co., at the (possibly exaggerated) age of 57 years, having committed suicide by shooting himself; he is described in the death record as a “Temperance Hotel Keeper,” and a married man.
  7. Mary M. Dean, born 1867-68 (aged 3 in 1871).

7. Ephraim3 Dean, son of John Dean, Jr., and Anna Mingle, was born 11 August 1829, and died 28 March 1862. He was still living unmarried with his parents in 1852, when he was a laborer. He married (as her first husband) 17 April 1854, Mahala Vannatter, who married secondly in 1864 in Erin Tp., John Stewart (and, it is said, may have had a daughter Annie by him). Although DGT shows no issue for them, Carol Morrow informs us that they had a son:

  1. Salem Adolphus Dean, born 14 September 1855 in Erin Tp., Wellington Co., died in 1910-1920. As Salem A. Dean, aged 25, born in Canada, residing at Oakville, bachelor, minister, he married 3 June 1880 in Meaford, Grey Co., Ontario, by licence, according to Methodist Episcopal rites,[103] Elmina (“Mina”) Raymond, born 1852-53 (aged 27 at marriage) in Canada, and then residing at Meaford, spinster, daughter of John and Maria (____) Raymond. Their marriage record names both sets of parents without however supplying the maiden surnames of the mothers; the witnesses were J.W. Law and Ida McDonald, both of Meaford. Salem Dean attended Drew Theological Seminary, and there is a detailed if somewhat disorganized memoir of him in the catalogue of its alumni.[104] The biographical portions (slightly rearranged) read:
    Salem Adolphus Dean was born September 14, 1855, in Elgin Co., Ontario; was converted at the age of nineteen; A.B., Alleghany College, 1889; B.D., Drew Theological Seminary, 1895; entered the Ontario Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, Canada, 1877; entered the Detroit Conference, 1882; married Miss Mina Raymond, June 30, 1880 [this disagrees with his marriage record, which gives the date as 3 June]. [Literary work:] 1887, editor of the Prohibition Department of the Meadville Herald; 1894, editor of the Flushing Visitor, a local church paper; Published: 1893, poem, “The First Christmas”; 1894, article, “After Twenty Years” (in the Michigan Christian Advocate).

    Salem A. Dean appears in the 1898 city directory of Saginaw, Michigan, as pastor of Ames Methodist Episcopal Church, with residence at 621 Hanchett Street.[105] He and his wife are found at Saginaw there in the 1900 census, in which Salem Dean is called a clergyman.[106] In 1910, they were living at Croswell, Lexington Tp, Sanilac Co., Michigan.[107] The widowed Mina Dean is found at Detroit in the 1920 and 1930 censuses.[108] Issue:
    1. Russell Stewart Dean, born 11 Jul 1881 at Meaford, Grey Co, Ontario,[109] died 3 April 1957, and buried in Forest Lawn Cemetery, Saginaw, Saginaw County, Michigan.[110] He married apparently in 1902-03 (the 1930 census says he was 21 at his marriage), Elizabeth Pidd, born 1880 in Michigan, daughter of John Pidd and Susan J. ____. They lived at Detroit, where he is found in the 1898 directory as Russell S Dean, book binder, Saginaw Printing & Publishing Company, buildings at 621 Hanchett Street.[111] In the 1910 census he is a paymaster for an auto company.[112] In 1920 he and his wife were living in her parents’ household, and he was a private secretary [with a] brokerage company.[113] But in the 1921 city directory he is called a travelling salesman, and in the 1930 directory a captain.[114] In the 1930 census he is found in a separate household from his wife and daughters, who were still living with her parents; but perhaps this was only because he was enumerated at work.[115] In 1940 the widowed Russell Dean was one of two boarders in the household of a widow, Ellen Eldred.[116] Issue:
      1. Dorothy Dean, born 1904 in Michigan.
      2. Jacob P. Dean, born 1905-06 in Michigan, died 29 April 1907 at Saginaw, aged 1 year, and buried 1 May following, as a child of Russell Dean and Elizabeth Pidt.[117]
      3. Susan Dean, born 1909 both in Michigan.
    2. Jennie Pearl Dean, born 15 July 1883 at Stockbridge, Livingston County, Michigan.[118] She was unmarried and living at Detroit at the taking of the 1940 census, when she was a secretary for a corporate lawyer.[119]

8. Andrew Tintern3 Dean,[120] son of David Dean and Cornelia Travis, was born 27 September 1819, and died (testate) 2 April 1888.[121] He married (1) by about 1844, Margaret Johnson, born ca. 1824, died 1857-61. He married (2) after 1861, Mary Jane Patterson, born 25 January 1844 in Ontario, of Scottish ancestry, died 18 July 1903, and buried at St. Anns. Andrew Dean was a miller, and the builder of Dean’s mill, on which is a marble tablet reading: “A.D. 1857, this mill was erected by Andrew Dean for the good of man, and he consecrates a tenth of all the proceeds to the spreading of the Gospel of Christ on Earth.”[122] Andrew Dean is found with much of his huge family in the 1881 census of Clinton Tp., in which he is called a miller, and his family’s religion is given as Canadian Methodist.[123] His will, proved in 1888, has not been seen by us. His widow is found with three of their children in the 1901 census of Clinton Tp.[124] The Andrew Dean homestead was sold in 1959 and became a golf course, with the house being used as the clubhouse. DGT lists five children of the first marriage and fourteen of the second:

(by first wife:)

  1. Matilda Dean, born ca. 1844; married ____ W____, according to DGT. However, there is no Matilda Dean in the Ontario Marriage Index, 1858-1899, and the LDS index to the 1881 census does not show any woman named Matilda of this approximate age who was married to a man whose last name began with W.
  2. John Frederick Dean, died in infancy.
  3. William Dean, died in infancy.
  4. Simon Dean, born 1850-51 (aged 30 in 1881) in Ontario, living 1881. He married by 1872, Georgina Johnson, born 1854-55 (aged 26 in 1881) in Ontario, although no marriage of a Simon Dean has been found in the Ontario Marriage Index, 1858-1886. DGT does not trace issue of this marriage, but Simon and his wife are found next to his father in the 1881 census of Clinton Tp., in which he is called a miller and the family’s religion is given as Canadian Methodist;[125] the following children are found with them at that time:
    1. Jessie Dean (female), born 1872-73 (aged 8 in 1881) in the USA.
    2. Flora Dean, English, born 1874-75 (aged 6 in Ontario.
    3. Mabel Dean, born 1878-79 (aged 2 in 1881) in Ontario.
  5. Mary Dean, born 1857-58 (aged 20 in 1874). She married 12 February 1874 in Clinton Tp.,[126] Henry J. Eddy, born 1853-54 (aged 24 in 1874) in the State of New York (per marriage record), son of Robert and Mary (____) Eddy. At the time of their marriage, the record of which names both sets of parents, she was residing in Clinton Tp. and he at Lewiston; the witnesses were Hiram Pletcher of Niagara and William E. Eddy of Lewiston.

(by second wife:)

  1. Seth Dean, died in infancy.
  2. Evelina Dean, died at the age of 12 years.
  3. Hesper Dean, born 1865-66 (aged 15 in 1881, 19 in 1885). She married 11 February 1885 in Clinton Tp.,[127] Byron H. Eckardt, born 1862-63 (aged 22 in 1885) in Clinton Tp. (per marriage record), son of Frederick and Magdeline (____) Eckhardt. At the time of their marriage, the record of which names both sets of parents, both parties were resident in Clinton Tp., and the groom was a farmer; the witnesses were William Haist and Electra Michener, both of Clinton. On 16 December 1885 “Byron & Hesper Eckhardt, both of Clinton Twp,” served as witnesses at the wedding, celebrated 11 February 1885 in Clinton Tp., of a Franklin H. Eckardt, aged 28, born in Clinton Tp. and resident at Campden, Ontario, son of Frederick and Margaret Eckhardt.[128] According to DGT, this couple had five children.
  4. Romain Dean, born 1867-68 (aged 13 in 1881). He married 24 June 1890 in Clinton Tp., Lincoln Co.,[129] Jessie Grobb, born 12 August 1870 in Clinton Tp., daughter of Joseph H. Grobb and Mary Flynn.[130] We have not found this couple in the LDS index to the 1881 census. Known issue, per DGT:
    1. Romain Dean, died before 1960.
    2. Lloyd Dean.
    3. A daughter, died aged 2½ years.
  5. Martha Dean, born 16 February 1869, living 1910. She married 20 December 1899 at Jordan Station, Lincoln Co.,[131] William Melvin Comfort (called Melvin William Comfort in his marriage record), born 30 April 1875, living 1910, son of Ephraim Comfort, of Clinton Tp., by his second wife, Margaret Zimmerman. At the time of their marriage, the record of which names both sets of parents, both parites were of Clinton Tp.; the witnesses were Henry and Ada Dean, of Clinton. They had three children.[132]
  6. Sarah Dean, born 1870-71 (aged 10 in 1881), living 1948 at St. Catharines. She married (1) 18 May 1892 at Jordan Station, Lincoln Co.,[133] Joseph H. Smith.[134] She married (2) (as his second wife) well after 1895,[135] Charles High, widower of her sister Lydia Dean. DGT does not state whether she had issue. See below for a photograph the 1906 High-Dean family reunion.
  7. Ada Dean (twin to Ida), born 1873-74 (aged 7 in 1881), died unmarried. She is presumably the Ada Dean who served as a witness at the weddings of her sisters Ida (1898), Eliza (1898), and Martha (1899).
  8. Ida Dean (twin to Ada), born 1873-74 (aged 7 in 1881). She married 8 Jan 1896 in Campden Tp., Lincoln Co.,[136] Harry Johnson, born 1870-71 (aged 25 in 1896) at Glasgow, Scotland (per marriage record), son of Thomas Johnson and Catherine Stewart. At the time of their marriage, the record of which names both sets of parents, she was of Campden Tp. but he of Buffalo, New York; the witnesses were Christopher Warner of Buffalo and Ada Dean of Campden. DGT does not state whether they had issue.
  9. Eliza Dean, born about 1875 (aged 5 in 1881, 23 in 1898). She married 28 June 1898 at Louth Tp., Lincoln Co.,[137] Edward Allen Moyer, born 1869-70 (aged 28 in 1898) in Campden Tp., son of William W. and Anna (____) Moyer. At the time of their marriage, the record of which names both sets of parents, she was of Campden Tp. but he of Hartford, and he was a draughtsman; the witnesses were Andrew Dean of Campden and Ada Dean of Buffalo, New York (is this residence an error?). DGT shows two children for them.
  10. Lydia Dean, born 1877-78 (aged 3 in 1881), died 27 March 1921. She married (as his first wife) 27 April 1895 at Merritton, Ontario,[138] Charles High, who after her death married her sister Sarah. DGT shows three children for them.
  11. Andrew (“Boyd”) Dean, Jr., born 15 March 1879 (per 1901 census). He was living unmarried with his mother in 1901, but subsequently married Maud Irish. Issue, per DGT:
    1. Dorothy Dean; married and had issue.
    2. Earl Rodney Dean, born 1912; married and has an only child, Debbie Dean, born 1950.
  12. Jane Dean, born in March 1881 (per 1881 census), living with her mother in 1901; said to have died unmarried.
  13. Henry Dean, born after 1881, but not living with his mother in 1901. He married Susie Putman. Only known child:
    1. Vera Dean, died ca. 1935; she married and had issue.
  14. Lucy Dean, born 17 February 1885 (per 1901 census), living with her mother in 1901, died unmarried.
High-Dean family reunion

9. David3 Dean,[139] Jr., son of David Dean and Cornelia Travis, was born 22 June 1820, and died 12 October 1904, aged 83 years, 8 months, and 20 days according to his tombstone (but the calculation or the reading is wrong), and buried with his wife and two of their children in Straffordville Cemetery, Bayham Tp., Elgin Co.[140] He married 21 July 1841 by licence, by W.H. Landon, Baptist minister of Woodstock,[141] Ann Brown, born about 24 January 1823 in Ontario, died 31 August 1881, aged 58 years, 7 months, and 7 days.[142] Their marriage record calls him of Clinton Tp. and her of Zorra Tp.; the witnesses were Andrew Dean and Eleanor Brown. David Dean and his family appear in the 1852 census, in which he is called a miller.[143] David Dean and his wife were at Innerkip, East Zorra Tp., Oxford Co., in 1856, if the birthplace of their son Cyrus is given correctly in his marriage record. According to the Tweedsmuir history of Richmond, Bayham Township, Elgin County,

Around 1857 David Dean from Dean’s Mills on the Wenty-Mile Creek in the Niagara peninusla bought the south end of the original Hatch land and established grist and saw mills. The long-one-storied house on the hill became the Mill House. Most of the Dean young people loved to sing and either they or their descendants figured in the later choir life of the community — Eleanor Dean married Henry Hatch; Susanne Dean married Amrbose High. Andrew Dean taught the singing school and energetically and faithfully fathered the first then-new church choir of Maple Gove until it moved to Eden. Darius Dean taught school. He married first Elizabeth High (daughter of Andrew High). His second wife was Hannah (daughter of Amoss [sic] High. Later Darius Dean became a miller at Jordan, Ontario.[144]

David Dean and his wife were certainly in Bayham Tp. at the taking of the 1861 census, which calls him a farmer and mill owner, and gives the family’s religion as Free Will Baptist; the ages of the children Cyrus (16) and Mary (14) as there given are impossible, as these children were not even alive in 1852, and in the case of Cyrus the figure cannot be reconciled with later records.[145] The 1871 calls him a millwright and gives their religion as Free Baptist.[146] The 1881 census calls him a millwright and gives their religion as Baptist.[147]
     In the 1880 U.S. census David Dean, aged 57, farmer and millwright, born in Ontario, father born in New Jersey and mother born in Ontario, appears, ostensibly as the head, in a household at White Rock, Huron Co., Michigan, which included his brother Darius and son Cyrus.[148] Surely, given the continuity of his residence in Bayham Tp., Ontario, this must be a mistake, and he was merely a visitor at the time; for although he is indicated as being married, there is no wife recorded with him.
     Known issue, per census records:

  1. Darius Dean, born 1842-43 (aged 9 in 1852, 18 in 1861), living with his parents in 1861 but not in 1871; he was a laborer in 1861. DGT shows both of his marriage, and states that “he had issue,” but without giving further details. He married (1) 16 May 1867 in Elgin Co.,[149] Elizabeth (“Betty”) A. High, born 1845, died 6 October 1868, aged 23 years, 6 months, and 24 days, as “Elizabeth A. wife of Darius Dean” buried in Old Richmond Cemetery, Bayham Tp., Elgin Co., where many members of the High family are interred,[150] daughter of Andrew High. He married (2) 13 August 1873 at Clifton [i.e. the place of this name in Stamford Tp., Welland Co.?],[151] Hannah High, daughter of Amos High. Despite the discrepancy in their stated ages, he is doubtless therefore the Darius Dean, aged 32 (implying a birthdate of 1848-49) who is found with wife Hannah in the 1881 census of Bayham Tp., in which he is called a school teacher.[152] Known issue (per 1881 census):
    1. Ada Dean, born 1875-76 (aged 5 in 1881) in Ontario.
    2. Esco Dean, born 1878-79 (aged 2 in 1881) in Ontario.
    3. Ernest Dean, born in December 1880 in Ontario.
  2. Joseph Dean, born about 21 May 1848, died 1 March 1865, aged 16 years, 9 months, and 10 days, and buried with his parents.
  3. Susannah Dean, born probably in 1849 (aged 2 in 1852, 12 in 1861) although her tombstone says 1850, died 1930, and buried with her husband in Straffordville Cemetery, Bayham Tp., Elgin Co.[153] She was still living with her parents in 1861. She married 25 March 1867 in Elgin Co.,[154] Ambrose G. or J. High, born 1846, died 1927. He is called Ambrose G. in their marriage record but Ambrose J. on their tombstone. Also buried with them, and presumably their children, are:
    1. Lincoln R. High, born 1869, died 1929.
    2. Margaret M. High, born 1876, died 1950.
    3. Mary Olive High, born 1882, died 1951.
  4. Eleanor J. Dean, born 1850-51 (aged 10 in 1861), died 1912, and buried with her husband and family in Straffordville Cemetery, Bayham Tp., Elgin Co.[155] She was still living unmarried with her parents in 1861. She married 15 December 1864 in Elgin Co.,[156] Henry Hatch, born 1843, died 1919, son of Levi and Mary (____) Hatch; according to the Tweedsmuir history of Bayham township, he was a son of Levi Hatch, Sr., apparently by Mary Ann Bowes.[157] Her marriage record calls her Ellen, while DGT calls her Eleanor. Known issue:
    1. Helena Hatch, born 1867, died 24 August 1950, aged 82 years, and she and her husband are buried with her parents. She married Calvin W. Lane, born 1861, died 1919. A death notice for her reads, in part, “Mrs. Helena H. Lane, 82 years, mother of Donald & Willard Lane; sister of Misses Mirianna and Louisa Hatch. Funeral from the residence, 42 Brock St., Tillsonburg, August 26 1949 to Strafffordville Cemetery.”[158] An Eleanor M. Lane, born 1901, died 1942, perhaps a daughter-in-law, is buried with them. Beside them are the sons mentioned in the death notice:
      1. Willard Hatch Lane, of Michigan, Private in the U.S. Marine Corps in World War I, born 12 October 1894, died 1 April 1968.
      2. Donald Garner Lane, Capt. in the R.C.C.S., born 1903, died 1989.
    2. Mary Anna or Mirianna Hatch, called Mirianna in the 1950 death notice of her sister Helena bu Mary Anna on her own tombstone, born 1874, died (unmarried) 1959.
    3. Louise/Louisa Hatch, called Louisa in the 1950 death notice of her sister Helena but Louise on her own tombstone, born 1878, died (unmarried) 1970.
  5. Andrew Dean, born 25 September 1852 (per 1901 census), living 1901. He was still living unmarried with his parents in 1871, when he was a farmer. He married 28 November 1877 at Walsingham Centre, (Mary) Abigail Mathews, born 8 Mary 1856 (per 1901 census) in Ontario, living 1881. Their marriage record calls her Abigail Mathews (giving her place of residence as Walsingham Tp.), but the 1881 census calls her Mary A. He is enumerated next to his parents in the 1881 census, in which he is called a farmer and the family’s religion is given as Protestant.[159] He and his family are also found in the 1901 census of Bayham Tp.[160] Known issue (birthdates per 1901 census):
    1. Ida May Dean, born 16 October 1879.
    2. Harry A. Dean, born Jan 21 1882.
    3. Alberta A. Dean, born Jul 29 1885.
    4. Viola B. Dean, born Sep 26 1890.
  6. Cyrus Dean, born 27 February 1856 (per 1901 census), at Innerkip, East Zorra Tp., Oxford Co. (per his marriage record), living 1901. The 1861 census, which shows the children in this family in no particular sequence, gives Cyrus’s age as 16, but this is clearly erroneous given the other census records. It is impossible that there could have been two sons named Cyrus of whom the older died young, as the dates would have their lives overlapping. Cyrus Dean was living with his parents in 1861. As Cyrus Dean, farmer, of Innerkip, Bayham Tp., aged 21, he married (1) 26 March 1877 at Brownsville, Oxford Co.,[161] Hannah H. Forbes, born 1856-57 (aged 20 in 1877, 23 in 1880) in Dereham Tp., died by 1884, daughter of Leander and Sarah S. (____) Forbes. She is incorrectly called Ella Forbes in DGT. At the time of their marriage, the record of which names both sets of parents, he was of Bayham Tp. and she of Dereham Tp.; the witnesses were William Brown and Sarah M. Forbes, both of Dereham. In 1880 Cyrus Dean and his first wife Hannah were living at White Rock, Huron Co., Michigan, when he is called a farmer in the census.[162] As noted above, although the head of the family is shown as Cyrus’s father David Dean, it seems more probable that the true head was the latter’s brother Darius, another member of the household. In any case, Cyrus himself was probably not the head, as early the next year he is found back in Canada, in the 1881 census of Dereham Tp., Oxford Co., in which he is called a farmer and the family’s religion is given as Methodist; again his wife’s name is given as Hannah.[163] Cyrus Dean married (2) before 1884, Maggie Wills, born 9 June 1861 in Ontario (per 1901 census), from whom, according to DGT, he was subsequently separated. “Syrus” Dean and his wife “Margeret” are found in the 1901 census of Aldborough Tp., Elgin Co., in which he is called a farmer and the family’s religion is given as Methodist.[164] Cyrus Dean married (3) Louise Mitchell, apparently alive in 1947, daughter of Alexander Mitchell and Elizabeth Davis. As Louise Mitchell Dean, who prepared the history of the Mitchell family for the Tweedsmuir history of Richmond, Bayham Township, noted above, in which she describes herself as “for a number of years a member of the editorial staff of the St. Thomas Times-Journal” and states that she “is a writer of short stories, sketches, and has recently published a book of poems entitled Drifted Leaves.” Known issue:

    (by first wife:)

    1. Merwin Dean, born 1877-67 (aged 2 in 1880, 3 in 1881) in Ontario, no longer living with his father in 1901.
    2. Ransom Henry Dean, born in Jan. 1880 in Ontario (1880 and 1900 U.S. censuses), or 31 January 1881 at White Rock, Michigan, alive in 1923. He was no longer living with his father in 1901. As an adult he returned to Michigan, and as Ransom Dean, then unmarried, born in Canada in January 1880 to parents both born in Canada, was enumerated in Elmwood Township, Tuscola County, Michigan, in the 1900 census, in which he is called a farm laborer and his year of citizenship is given as 1887.[165] As Ransom Henry Dean (but he signs Ransome Henry Dean), carpenter, born 31 January 1881 at White Rock, Michigan, he enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Forces on 19 August 1915 at Brandon, Manitoba, naming his next of kin as Mrs. A. M. Dean, of Brandon.[166] He was a carpenter, at no. 21 Alma Street, St. Thomas, Ontario, at the birth of his son Donald in 1907. He was still alive in April 1923, when as Ransom H. Dean, carpenter, aged 42 years, he crossed the Canada-U.S. border at Detroit, naming as a contact his “uncle Ambrose High [of] Staffordville, Ont.” [the husband of his father’s sister Susannah (Dean) High].[167] He married before 19 August 1915, Anna May Gray.[168] Only known child:
      1. Donald Henry Dean, born 19 September 1907 at St. Thomas, Ontario.[169] He is said to have married Mary Lucille Ladd, and had a son, Harry D. Dean.[170]

    (by second wife:)

    1. Ira Dean, born 24 November 1884 in Ontario.
    2. Alfred Dean, born 8 November 1891 in Ontario.
  7. Mary L. Dean, born in July 1858, died 14 August 1858, aged 5 weeks, and buried with her parents.
  8. Mary L. Dean, born 1860-61 (aged 10 in 1871, 20 in 1881, 26 in 1886), living unmarried with her parents in 1881. Like that given for her brother Cyrus, the age of 14 years given for this child in the 1861 census, implying a birthdate of 1846-47, is utterly erroneous, as in 1852 she had not even been born. She married 29 Dec 1886 in Bayham Tp.[171] Towsend Lounsbury, born 1857-58 (aged 28 in 1886) in Houghton Tp. (per marriage record), son of Sylvester and Sybil (____) Lounsbury. At the time of their marriage, the record of which names both sets of parents, both parties were of Bayham Tp., and the groom was a farmer; the witnesses were David O. Dean of Michigan, U.S.A., and Mary Lounsbury of Bayham. A little earlier, “Townsend Lousbery and Mary L. Dean, both of Bayham” served as witnesses at the marriage, celebrated 7 July 1886 at Brownsville, of Electa Marilda Lounsbury, aged 26, born in Houghton Tp. and resident in Bayham (daughter of Sylvester and “Sirvilla” Lousbury) to William H. Segar.[172]
  9. David Dean, Jr., born 1863-64 (aged 7 in 1871), living unmarried with his parents in 1881, died unmarried according to DGT. He is presumably the David O. Dean of Michigan who served as a witness at the weddoing of his sister Mary in 1886.

10. Israel3 Dean,[173] son of David Dean and Cornelia Travis, was born in 1825, died 1881-1901. He married by 1848, Charity Martin, born 7 August 1828, living 1901. They are found with their two youngest children in the 1881 census of Willoughby Tp., Welland Co., in which he is called a lumber merchant and their religion is given as Dunker.[174] His widow is found next door to their son Israel in the 1901 census of Willoughby Tp.[175] Issue, per DGT (which does not trace any of the lines further):

  1. Mary Dean; said in DGT to have married Peter Monson, although we cannot find such a couple in the Ontario Marriage Index, 1858-1886.
  2. Cyrus Dean, born 15 April 1849 (per 1901 census) in Ontario, living 1901. He (then designated of Willoughby Tp.) married 3 September 1871 at Manchester, New York,[176] Lydia Barnhart, born 15 February 1844 (per 1901 census) in Ontario, living 1901, daughter of Abraham Barnhart, of Bertie Tp. They are enumerated in Willoughby Tp. in the 1881 census, in which he is called a laborer, and the family’s religion is given as Dunker.[177] They are enumerated in Wainfleet Tp., in the Haldimand & Monck district, in the 1901 census.[178] Known issue, all born in Ontario:
    1. Fredrick Dean, born 12 June 1872 (per 1901 census), still living unmarried with his parents in 1901.
    2. Edna Dean, born 1874-75 (aged 7 in 1881), no longer living with her parents in 1901.
    3. Melvin Dean, born 1875-76 (aged 6 in 1881), no longer living with his parents in 1901.
    4. Celia Dean, born 1878-79 (aged 3 in 1881), no longer living with her parents in 1901.
    5. Joseph Dean, born 1879-80 (aged 2 in 1881), no longer living with his parents in 1901.
    6. Frank Dean, born 18 July 1882 (per 1901 census), still living unmarried with his parents in 1901.
  3. 15Benjamin Dean, born 12 May 1851.
  4. Christine Dean; said in DGT to have married Benjamin Barnhart, although we cannot find such a couple in the Ontario Marriage Index, 1858-1899.
  5. Cornelia Dean; said in DGT to have married Leonard Matthews, although we cannot find such a couple in the Ontario Marriage Index, 1858-1899.
  6. John Dean; said in DGT to have married (1) Caroline Loop; married (2) Maggie Geyer, although we cannot find either marriage in the Ontario Marriage Index, 1858-1899.
  7. 16Israel Dean, born 23 April 1862 (per 1901 census) in Lincoln Co.
  8. Charity Dean, born 1864-65 (aged 16 in 1881); living unmarried with her parents at the taking of the 1881 census. She married 4 October 1881 in Willoughby Tp.,[179] George Heximer.

11. Cyrus S.3 Dean,[180] son of David Dean and Cornelia Travis, was born 5 September 1831 (per 1901 census) and as still alive in 1901. According to DGT he was married twice, but only the name of the first wife is known. He married (1) by 1856, Arabella or Isabella Haw [or Hawthorne?], born 21 August 1836, living 1901. In the 1861 census of Clinton Tp. he is called a mechanic, and his wife’s name is given as Arabella. We have not located them in the LDS index to the 1881 census of Ontario, but they are found in the 1901 census of Fort Erie Village, which gives her names as Isabella; no children are found with them.[181] Issue, per DGT (the last three possibly by a second wife; none of the lines traced further):

  1. William Dean, born ca. 1856.
  2. Cyrus Arminius Dean, Jr., born 11 September 1857 (per 1901 census), died 2 September 1956 at West Vancouver, aged 98 years.[182] He married 17 July 1895 in the New Westminster District, B.C.,[183] Annie Robson, born 17 July 1877 in New Zealand (per 1901 census), possibly the Mary Anna Dean who died 28 May 1952 at Vancouver, aged 76 years.[184] The identity of Cyrus Dean, son of Cyrus S. Dean, with the man who went to British Columbia, is indicated by the statements in DGT that he was born “ca. 1857” and married “Anna Robinson”; which is pretty close to the name given in their marriage record; furthermore, they named a son Cyrus S. Dean, doutbless for the child’s paternal grandfather, and this child was born at Fort Erie, his grandfather’s home. They are found in the 1901 census of Victoria, B.C., in which he is called an engineer.[185] Known issue:
    1. Doran Robson Dean, born 19 November 1896 at Victoria.[186] He married 1 August 1922 at Vancouver,[187] Evelyn Beatrice Jones.
    2. Cyrus Sumner Dean, probably born 24 September 1899 (per army record) at Fort Erie, Ontario, although his birthdate is given as 24 September 1900 in the 1901 census. He enlisted in the Canadian Over-Seas Expeditionary Force on 8 February 1916 at Vancouver, giving his address as 1810 Cedar Street, his occupation as bugler, his marital status as single, his religion as Church of England, his age as 16 years and 4 months, his place of birth as Fort Erie, Ontario, and the name of his father as Cyrus Dean.[188] He married 15 May 1926 at Vancouver,[189] Helen Aletha Hackman.

He married 16 September 1855, Almeda Margaret Joice, born 11 March 1839, died 18 February 1889 at Waterdown. Their marriage was witnessed by David Dean and Henry Orth. The 1861 census of Clinton Tp. calls him a miller. The 1881 census of the town of St. Catherines, Lincoln Co., calls him an engineer, and gives the family’s religion as Methodist.[193] Issue, per DGT (which does not trace any of the lines further, except that of their son John) and the researches of Susan (Rutherford) Bijakowski:

  1. Alice Maryetta Dean, born 28 July 1856, died 9 March 1911. She married 8 July 1878 at Midcreek, Clinton Tp., her third cousin, George Peter Hansel, son of David Hansel, of St. Anns, by the latter’s wife Sarah Zimmerman; grandson of George Hansel (1789-1824) and Sarah Wilkinson, and great-grandson of Andreas Hansel and Maria Christina Flach (see our FLACH page).

  2. A. Emma Dean, born 23 January 1858, living unmarried with her parents in 1881. She later married by 1883, William Fitch, although we have not found this couple in the Ontario Marriage Index, 1869-1886. Known issue, order uncertain:
    1. William Fitch, said to have been born 29 April 1880 although this would surely have been before his parents’ marriage.
    2. Jennie Fitch, born 1883; married Orme Fairley.

          2. Kendra Dawn Fisher, born 1984.
  5. Estella Dean, born 31 August 1865, died 24 March 1887 at Hamilton, Ontario. DGT states that she married “____ Newman,” which inclines us to think she could have been mother of the Estella Nunan found in the household of her brother Seward in 1901. However, the records of Susan (Rutherford) Bijakowski state that Estella Dean married Charles Herold, and had a son, Arthur Herold. We are presently unable to resolve the discrepancy, as there is no entry for an Estella Dean in the Ontario Marriage Index, 1869-1899.
  6. John Clifford Dean, born 23 April 1868 in Clinton Tp., died 26 September 1938 at Tobermory, Bruce Co., Ontario.

    6. Lillian Dean, born 27 October 1900 at Tobermory, died 10 January 1977 at Toronto, and buried at Tobermory. She married William H. Barney, born 29 August 1912, son of Edward Barney and Annie Westlake. DGT states that she “lived in Weston, York Co., Ontario, in 1860,” which statement is obviously in error as to the date.
    7. Aaron Dean, born 27 September 1902 at Tobermory, died 20 July 1978 at Owen Sound, and buried at Tobermory. He married 10 November 1935, Eileen Spears, born 15 August 1915 at Coquitlam, British Columbia, daughter of Thomas Spears and Mary Ellen Bartman. They had six children.

    12. Orlon Alvin Dean, born 28 June 1913 at Tobermory, died there 25 October 1973, and buried there. He married before 1937, Velma Smith, born 14 September 1917 at Tobermory, daughter of Adelbert Huston Smith and Julia May Spears. They had six children.
  7. Bertha Dean, born 26 November 1871, died (probably unmarried) 18 July 1891 at Buffalo. DGT states rather uncertainly that she married “____ Seward,” but adds, “the source is unclear; a Seward Dean may have been a brother of Bertha.” In view of the fact that Bertha did indeed have such a brother, we believe that the suggested marriage should be disregarded, particularly as no such marriage appears in the Ontario Marriage Index, 1887-1899.
  8. Seward A. Dean, born 12 October 1874; married shortly before 31 May 1900,[199] Elizabeth Page, born 25 December 1874, died 1950, and buried in Greenwood Memorial Park, San Diego.[200] They are found in the 1901 census of Nelson Tp., Halton Co.; also in their household was a “niece,” Estella Nunan, born 14 December 1883.[201] Known issue:

      1. John Anthony Pitts, born 9 January 1937 at San Bernardino, California,[202] died 13 May 1997 in Texas, and was cremated. His father is named as James Pitts in his birth record, but it is unclear whether his parents were ever married; and he is found in the household of his maternal grandparents in the 1940 census. His daughter-in-law Mary Pitts supplied several details on this family group.
      2. Carol Spratt, born 4 January 1946 at San Diego, California.[203]
    4. Jessie Dean, born 17 March 1901; married Russell Lye.

They are listed with their eldest child in the 1861 census of Gainsborough Tp. They had however removed to Windham Tp., Norfolk Co., by 1881, when the census of that year calls William Dean a farmer and gives the famly’s religion as Presbyterian.[208] The widowed William Dean is found with two sons and his sister Ann in the 1901 census of Windham Tp.[209] Known issue:[210]

  5. Calvin James Dean, born 15 June 1867, living 1881. We have not found a marriage for him, nor have we found him in the 1901 census.
  6. George Secord Dean, born 6 February 1869 at Charlotteville, Norfolk Co. (per marriage record), died 1949 at Fort William. He married 20 September 1898 in the Thunder Bay District,[212] Margaret J. Mapledoram, born 1872-73 (aged 25 in 1898) at Wyandotte, Michigan (per marriage record), daughter of William C. Mapledoram and Agnes ____. At the time of their marriage, the record of which names both sets of parents without however supplying the maiden surnames of the mothers, the groom was a millman, of Rat Portage, and the bride was of Fort William.

The witnesses at their marriage were Gurtie Vollett and John Vollett, both of Bentinck township. He is found as a widower in the 1901 census of Durham Tp., Grey Co., at which time only his children Adeline, Lorne, and Salem were still living with him.[224] His great-grandson Charles A. Dixon writes to us, “I remember my great grandfather; he was a lovely man.” A death notice supplied by Mr. Dixon reads:

Injured Saturday when he fell down a flight of stairs at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Anna Burleigh, 206 Van Horne Street (1089 Dupont). He was widely known in Masonic circles in Durham Ont., having been a member of the order there for 51 years. He also belonged to the Orange Order. For the past 7 years he lived in Toronto. A carpenter by trade, he retired 25 years ago. Suddenly at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Toronto, in his 90th year [an exaggeration], husband of the late Abigail Vollett Dean. Funeral services at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Adeline Stothers, 239 Emerson Ave.
Another unidentified death notice, supplied by great-grandson Allan Dean, begins similarly and continues:
Mr. Dean came to Durham in 1881 or 1882 when the Grand Trunk Railway branch was opened, being the first section hand to work on the Durham-Palmerston branch. More than 60 years ago he was married to Abigail Vollett, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Henry Vollett, who died about 40 years ago. Mr. Dean and family left here upwards of 30 years ago. Surviving are Mrs. Archie McDermid (Windsor), three other daughters, Adeline, Annie, and Ruby, all of them married and living in Windsor and Toronto, two sons, Lorne, in Windsor, and Salem, in England. The funeral will be held … to Maplewood Cemetery….
Yet another death notice states, in part:
Born in Erin, he lived successively in Durham, St. Thomas, and Windsor before coming to Toronto seven years ago.

15. Benjamin4 Dean, son of Israel Dean and Charity Martin, was born 12 May 1851, and was still alive in 1901. He (then of Willoughby Tp.) married 22 August 1871 at Buffalo, New York,[230] Elizabeth Barnhart, born 19 March 1849 in Ontario, living 1901, daughter of Abraham Barnhart, of Bertie Tp., and presumably sister to Benjamin’s brother Cyrus’s wife. They appear in the 1881 census, in which he is called a section worker, and his own religion is given as “W. Brethren” but that of the rest of his family as Dunker.[231] They appear in the 1901 census of Bertie Tp., Welland Co., which shows a niece, Anne Hexamer, born 19 December 1891, as a member of their household.[232] Known issue:

  1. Elaina Dean, born 1872-73 (aged 8 in 1881), no longer living with her parents in 1901. As “Alzina” Dean, of Bertie Tp., aged 21 years, daughter of Benjamin and Elizabeth Dean, she married 19 November 1892 in Welland Co., Freeman A. Johnston, born 1865-66 (aged 26 at marriage) in Bertie Tp., son of Abraham and Fannie (____) Johnston.
  2. Alfred Dean, born 1873-74 (aged 7 in 1881), no longer living with his parents in 1901.
  3. Rebecca Dean, born 1875-76 (aged 5 in 1881), no longer living with her parents in 1901.
  4. David Dean, born 1877-78 (aged 3 in 1881) in Bertie Tp. (per marriage record), died 29 December 1958 at Port Colborne, Welland Co.[233] He was no longer living with his parents in 1901. He married 3 August 1899 at Stevensville, Bertie Tp., Welland Co.,[234] Laura Cecelia Rogers, born 21 January 1876 at Stevensville, died 22 January 1978 at Douglas Memorial Hospital, Fort Erie, Welland Co., daughter of Alonzo Rogers and Eva Beam. At the time of their marriage, the record of which names both sets of parents, both were of Stevensville, and he was a miller; the witnesses were Sarah Dean and Victoria Rogers, both of Stevensville. Issue:
    1. Raymond Dean, born 26 December 1914. He married 31 August 1940, Mildred Climenhaga, born 16 December 1917, daughter of Ernest Benjamin Climenhaga and Rhoda McKay. Issue:
      1. Patricia Ann Dean, born 5 March 1942, died 24 August 1962.
      2. Mary Ellen Dean; married Keith Robinson.
      3. David Dean.
    2. Ross Victor Dean, born 1 January 1902 at Stevensville, died there 25 March 1965. He married 11 June 1928 at Stevensville, Hazel Maud Gilmore, born 16 June 1900 at Stevensville, died 7 March 1983 at Fort Erie, Welland Co. Issue:
      1. Shirley Dean; she married Victor Semley, and resides at Stevensville. Only known child: Brenda Semley.
      2. Calder Douglas Dean; he married Loretta ____, and resides at Stevensville. Issue: Teresa Dean; Karen Dean; Richard Calder Dean, Jr.
      3. Morley Max Dean; he married Joyce Eleanor Winger, and resides at Stevensville. Issue: James Morley Dean; Elizabeth Ann Dean.
    3. Myrtle Olive Dean, born 12 July 1906 at Stevensville, Bertie Tp., died 30 April 1972 at Douglas Memorial Hospital, Fort Erie. She married Edgar George Kramer, died 22 October 1981 Port Colborne, Welland Co. No known issue.
  5. Esther Dean, born probably in late 1881, in Bertie Tp. (per marriage record), married 21 Dec 1898 in Bertie Tp.,[235] Emerson Zimmerman, born 1871-72 (aged 26 in 1898) in Bertie Tp., son of Elias Zimmerman and Barbara Wilhelm. At the time of their marriage, the record of which names both sets of parents, both parties were of Bertie Tp., and the groom was a farmer; the witnesses were David Doan and Laura Rogers, both of Bertie Tp. Although the record gives her age as 18, this is unlikely as it would place her birth in 1879-80, in which case she should have appeared with her parents in the 1881 census.
  6. Israel Dean, born 31 March 1883.
  7. Sarah Dean, born 15 April 1885, in Bertie Tp. (per marriage record). She married 21 December 1904 in Bertie Tp.,[236] her sister Esther’s husband’s brother, Frank Zimmerman, born 1879-80 (aged 24 in 1904) in Michigan (per marriage record), son of Elias Zimmerman and Barbara Wilhelm. At the time of their marriage, the record of which names both sets of parents, both parties were resident in Bertie Tp., and the groom a farmer; the witnesses were Chester Zimmerman and Laura Dean, both of Bertie.
  8. Laura A. Dean, born 6 February 1887, living 1904, when she served as a witness at the wedding of her elder sister Sarah.

16. Israel4 Dean, son of Israel Dean and Charity Martin, was born 23 April 1862 (per 1901 census) in Lincoln County, and died 11 October 1914 in Willoughby Tp., Welland County. He was living unmarried with his parents in 1881. He married before 1886, Catherine Heximer, born 21 September 1867. No marriage for Israel Dean appears in the Ontario Marriage Index, 1869-1886, but his wife’s maiden surname is supplied by the various marriage records of three of their children.This fact was kindly pointed out to us by Lorine McGinnis Schultze. They are found next door to his widowed mother in the 1901 census of Willoughby Tp.[237] Known issue (per 1901 census):

  1. Ida Dean, born 25 July 1886 in Willoughby Tp. She married 30 September 1903 in Welland Co.,[238] Michael M. Beck, born 1876-77 (aged 26 at marriage) in Willoughby Tp., son of Michael Beck and Catharine Shabel. The marriage record names both sets of parents.
  2. Edna Dean, born 23 October 1887. She married 1 July 1912 in Welland Co.,[239] Albert Roy Climenhage, born 1884-85 (aged 27 at marriage), son of Christi[a]n Climenhage and Maggie Beam. The marriage record names both sets of parents.
  3. Cora or Dora Dean, born 27 December 1890. DGT calls her Dora, but it was as Cora Dean, aged 24 years, that she married 2 November 1815 in Welland County, George A. Brown, born 1888-89 (aged 26 at marriage), son of George A. Brown and Elizabeth McKin.
  4. Roy Dean, born 28 August 1895 in Willoughby Township, Welland County, died 22 July 1974 in Bertie Township, Welland County.

This information comes from his nephew Harry Dean, who tells us that the family record in the bible of Israel Dean (1862-1914) shows a marriage for Roy Dean on 23 August 1923, without naming a wife.
  5. Harry Dean, born 9 January 1901 in Willoughby Tp., Welland County, died 18 December 1957 in Douglas Memorial Hospital, Fort Erie, Ontario. He married 17 September 1926 in St. Andrew’s Church, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Lincoln Co., Pearl Alouis Jansen, born 23 February 1905 in Bertie Township, Welland Co., died 15 March 1976 in Welland County General Hospital, Welland, daughter of Roy Philip Jansen and Beulah Mae Badger.

2[Dean family bible record], printed in Newsletter of the Niagara Peninsula Branch Ontario Genealogical Society, May 1991.
3The Deans of Gainsborough Township gives the month and year but not the precise date. A copy of this record was sent to us by Marietta Pickell before we had seen “Marriage Records of the Zion Lutheran Church at Oldwick,” Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey, 40 (1965):10ff.; a copy of this transcription formerly available online at http://members.aol.com/njdata/oldwick.html can still (November 2012) be found in the Internet Archive. Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church is the oldest surviving Lutheran congregation in New Jersey.
4Based on her age at death as given on her tombstone. The old Dean family bible record, as printed, says 14 days; we are grateful to Scott Ercit for pointing out the discrepancy. The calculations in DGT, which we are quite certain are based on this record, say 16 March on p. 1 and 15/17 March on p. 28, and are consequently incorrect.

14These five children were: Matthias, born 2 October 1772; Aaron, born 22 October 1774; William, born 7 February 1776; Mary, born 9 June 1778; and Daniel, born 23 December 1781. See LDS patrons’ submission records, batch 7132328, sheets 42-3, on microfilm no. 539,007. John Littell, Family records of genealogies of the first settlers of Passaic Valley and [the] vicinity above Chatham (1851), seemingly refers to several of these children; see pp. 182 (for Matthias), 368 (for Aaron), and 419 (for William).
15Chambers, op. cit., mentions others of this name, including:
  • Aaron Dean, who married Grietie (van der) Vliet (1750-), daughter of John Vliet by the latter’s wife Grietie Wyckoff (p. 544);
  • “Catherine Dean, daughter of John ?,” who married Gilbert Bodine (1761-1838), of Chester Tp., Morris Co. (p. 269).
A Jonathan Dean married 2 June 1797 in Morris Co. (LDS Vital Records Index), Esther Fairchild, who is treated in J. Percy Crayon, Rockaway Records of Morris County, N.J. Families (Rockaway, N.J., 1902); perhaps Jonathan was the one of this name who was later a member of Mt. Olive Presbyterian Church.

38William Havens, Jr., was a son of William Havens, Sr. (1738-1800), U.E.L., as stated in Annals of the Forty, 5:37. However, in its discussion of the earlier Havens ancestry, this work makes somewhat naïve use of an obviously modern commemorative plaque, which implies that the Canadian immigrant was a grandson of John Havens, of Portsmouth, Rhode Island, and Navesink, New Jersey. The man of Portsmouth was fathering children before the mid-1670s, and the chronological unlikelihood of such a connection had been pointed out some years before in Henry C. Havens, The Havens family in New Jersey (Trenton, N.J., 1933), 26-27.

91This family is represented incorrectly in DGT, p. 24, where the daughter Mary is erroneously called Sarah, and the daughter Rachael is erroneously called Mary. It would appear that the Bottings, in transcribing the evidence of the 1861 census, inadvertently duplicated the mother’s name of Sarah for the daughter Mary and moved Mary’s name down a row, eliminating the second daughter Rachael.
