    • This branch of the Deal family of North Carolina is somehow related to the Willis Lawson family of Putnam County, as evidenced by the fact that James Graves (1833-1892) and Mary Barnett Deal (1800-1880) lived in adjacent households in Putnam County, perhaps on land owned by Mary Barnett Deal (1800-1880).
