Please help me. I've lost my gg-gpa, George DEAN. He was born in 1786. His gravestone says "a native of Pennsylvania / Allaghany (sic) County" but I have looked there to no avail. He quite certainly was in Huntingdon Co., PA when he married Elizabeth Hoshel in 1810. Is it possible that he was a native of Allegany Co., MD?

Am looking of descendants of John Wesley RYAN married to Virginia Isora COVERICK. John W died 1-28-1925 followed by his wife 12-2-1957. Both are buried in Rose Hill Cemetary. Family rumors say they had 4 daughters; one a nurse. John W's father was John RYEN married to Sarah ENGLISH so one daughter may have been a Sarah. John W is my grandfather by his first marriage and was previously thought to have died in 1985 at age 26. Obits (Cumberland Times-News) for both are on file at public libraries but have no way to access them since I'm in Thailand

John DEAKINS settled in Allegany Co. probably by 1790 probably from Fairfax Co. VA, died there 1814. Probably his wife was Lettice/Letitia. His widow or daughter Letitia/Lettice married John MCDONALD 1814. MCDONALD was administrator of John DEAKINS estate. Probable other children were Sally/Sarah (m. William KAY 1797), Priscilla (m. James KAY ca 1799; they went to Greene Co. PA then to Mason Co. VA), John DEAKINS Jr. (m. Margaret JAMES 1797; he d. ca 1823, widow and daughters went to Muskingum Co. OH). I cannot find any deeds to/from John DEAKINS Sr. in Allegany or Washington Co. but he appears to have been taxed on land. Seek information on all these people.
