Deen/Dean Family of Southern Illinois

Hello! I descend from Jacob C. Dean and Sarah Emeline Smith of Southern Illinois, who are my GG Grandparents. My ancestors (no birth or death dates at this time, but I believe they are buried in Williamson/Johnson County, Illinois, cemeter County Line in Creal Springs area) have been found living in Hamilton County, Johnson County, Saline County, Williamson County, Franklin County, Illinois...and they also moved back and forth from Missouri quite often.
I have found where their daughter Leona Dean daughter of J. DEEN was listed as being born in Hamilton County, IL and married on March 22, 1903 in Franklin County Illinois to EF Jones. Leona was my G Grandmother.
their son George W. Dean b. Greenfield, MO son of Jacob C. Dean and Sarah E. Smith married Emma Shepherd in Benton Illinois, Franklin County on Dec. 13, 1906.
their daughter Iva E. Dean b. Aug 1873 in Saline County, Illinois married Charles E. Jones on Aug. 14, 1896 in Franklin County.
Their dauther Ellie (Ellen) M. Dean b. about 1877 resident of West End, Saline County Illinois married in Saline County, Illinois to William Hall on 20 Dec 1895.
I have always been told DEAN is the spelling of our family name, yet I find them appearing as DEEN and DEAN on various census.
Please help me if you feel your research is part of this family as well.
