Jacob Thomas Deal (1816-1985)
Jacob Thomas Deal (1816-1985)

Nora Deal Foster, "Origin of the Name, 1949" (typescript), Page One:

". . . The Deal family, a part of it, migrated to Holland during the Puritan uprising and remained there until after the American Revolution, when three brothers came to North Carolina (1805). Our great-grandfather [Jacob Thomas Deal] remained there.

One brother went to Ohio. Great Uncle Noah, the batchelor, started to California during the gold rush of 1844 [actually, the gold rush began in January 1848] and was never heard of again. Uncle [Philip] Socrates Deal [b. 1841] used to correspond with some of the Ohio Deals. Strange isn't it that I never heard the names of the two who married and reared families. Grandfather used to talk about his father coming to America and how he could talk Dutch [Deutsch, German], but never told me his given name. Anyhow, he became an American, married a North Carolina girl and they reared a big family. Cousin Fanny (Jacob Deal's oldest grandaughter) used to tell me that grandfather had eleven brothers.

Our grandfather, your father's and mine, Jacob [Thomas] Deal, was born 14 Nov 1816 on a farm in North Carolina. . . . He married Frances Rudisill 24 Dec 1840. They moved to the present site of Asheville NC, then but little more than a mountain farm. In fact, when Asheville became the county site [seat of government], grandfather gave the land on which the first courthouse was built.

In 1848 grandfather and his older brother, John took their household goods, their families, their slaves and moved to Mississippi. Think of that trio in Conestoga wagons, no bridges, and very little roads. Women and babies must have been tougher in those days than they are now. There [were] four children [Elizabeth A.E. age 8, Philip S. age 6, Sarah M. age 4, Frances A. age 3 in 1850 Census, Northern Division, Marshall, MS].

Uncle John remained in Mississippi, [but] after six years grandfather moved to Arkansas. In the autumn of 1854, when Arkansas had been a state just eighteen years, his post office was Old Austin, AR. He lived seventeen miles from the post office. There were no postage stamps at that time. When they called at the office, if there was a letter, they paid the postmaster twenty-five cents and were given the letter.

My father, Lafayette Deal, [was] born 14 Mar 1855. Five years later the Civil War began. That was five years of devastation for grandfather as well as every other Southerner. His slaves were freed, an invading army burned his cotton gin, destroyed his brick kilns, took his horses and mules, drove his cattle away to feed the northern soldiers. He never fully recovered financially from the misfortunes of this time."

On page eleven, there is a longer account of this incident during the Civil War.

Joseph A Deal family history in 'Harrison County, Iowa History' (1891), pp. 857-858.
Joseph A Deal family history in "Harrison County, Iowa History" (1891), pp. 857-858.

INTRODUCTION:

The entry for Joseph A. Deal, the son of John Deal (1799-1880) and grandson of William Deal (b. Abt. 1770 North Carolina d. Putnam, IN 1838), mainly described the relocation of the John Deal family from Indiana to Iowa.

This account raises three questions about the lineage of this family.

Besides "North Carolina," there was no mention of the birth/death information for grandfather William Deal or even the given name of his wife, grandmother Eve (Decker) Deal.

The names of John Deal, Elizabeth Deal, and three other children of grandfather William Deal were shown. However, the married name of daughter Eliza Jane was said to be "Groven," rather than "Grogan."

A sixth child, Andrew Deal, was omitted altogether. Andrew and his family remained in Indiana, which may explain their absence from this narrative.
