    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.
