Robert, I am searching for William Bird Deas b. 14 Aug 1848 Lee County, GA (Next to Terrell). He married Arabella Catherine Hays 1868 in Colquitt County (near) Lee according to her CSA widow's pension application. William Bird Deas enlisted in the CSA in Terrell County in Capt. Slaten's company of the Macon Light Artillary. At one point in the pension papers she refers to her husband as William Bird Deas, Jr. William Bird was the son of Cornelius Deas and Sara A. (?). I can find no reference to Cornelius or his son William in the census indexes for GA. The family moved to FL about 1875. Arabella can be found in Mitchell Co. (next to Colquitt) in the 1860 census at age 9. Her parents were John Newton Hays and Mary E (?). I don't know if this helps but maybe some clues to go on.
