My name is Jonathan Smith and I recently began a quest to assemble a genealogy for my family. I found a post that you had made to genealogy.com about 4 years ago (http://genforum.genealogy.com/deen/messages/292.html), and I am hoping that you are still at this email address!
I am a direct decendent of John Deen and Ruth Nash (though their son, Calloway Deen), and I would greatly appreciate any information you may be able to give me regarding my family's past. I read on a University of Texas website that Calloway's grandfather (John's father), Joshua Deen, fought in the revolutionary war, but I have been unable to find out any information beyond that.
My father has recently transcribed a letter written by Calloway's son, also named John Deen, that was written in 1862 about the battle of Iuka (in which he was involved.) If you are interested in reading it, I would be happy to pass it along to you.
