BUTTS / DEAL
November 10, 2002
I have been searching the census records to find my husband's grandparents. In 1880 (Black River) I found
Jessie BUTTS married to Dillame (writing blurred) with a 10 year old daughter Louisa and 3 year old Lilly.
On the 1900 census Jessie is on the same census and in the same community Louisa age 30 is married to
John E. DEAL and also on the 1910 census. On 1910 there was a William Deal living next door who was
just 9 years younger that John E. DEAL. William lists his mother Eliza age 80 living in his home.
I wonder if this is the brother and mother of John E. Deal also.
I have been able to identify these children of Louisa and John Deal from the three census records.
Children: Emma 1888, William Frank 1889, Catherine 1891, Margaret Pearl 1893, Ada 1894, Susan Lalon 1896,
John A. 1897, Flossie 1898, Luda 1903, Irvin 1905, Aver 1907, Mae 1908, Ina 1910, James 1911, Weda 1912.
Can anyone give me any information on this family? Rose Allgood

BROWN / COOK
October 19, 2002
I am trying to research family history- My family is centered in the Cumberland County- Harnett County area
JOHN COOK is my g-g grandfather who married Viney BROWN- census shows them to be in an area called Barbecue
Township. They 10-12 children. When Viney died around 1880- John Cook remarried a woman- first name
Margaret and they had a child ( I believe adopted by John ) name of John. John my G-G grandfather I believe
was born in NC around 1827-1832- but his family was originally from either Jura or Lairg Scotland.Viney was
of the Lumbee Nation. If anyone has any information - please drop me a line.
