Re: Deer in Indiana

According to Family Bible records (DEER portion) in bound vol. in Franklin Library (genealogy section), Johnson Co., IN, Martha Jane DEER was the 4th of 9 children born to Alford DEER and Mary Jane MILLER. I don't have copy of first DEER pages, so I don't know Alford DEER's parents. My 2nd gr. grandmother, Emily DEER, was a sister of Alford DEER. The following info. is found in the volume.

Alford DEER, b. 6 Aug 1811; d. 15 Nov 1893; m. 13 Mar 1834 to Mary Jane MILLER, b. 21 Jun 1816; d. 17 Aug 1873. Their children were:
(1) John Thomas DEER, b. 17 Dec 1834; (2) William Wesley DEER, b. 4 Apr 1837; (3) Henry Jackson DEER, b. 17 May 1840; d. 30 May 1897; m. 16 Jan 1861 to Joanne SIMPSON, b. 1844; d. 9 Feb 1923; (4) Martha Jane DEER,
b. 19 Jan 1844; d. 21 Feb 1923; m. 9 Dec 1861 to Milton C. BOAZ (See BOAZ, p. 216, in bound vol. I don't have.); (5) James Madison DEER, b 2 Jul 1846; m. Fannie Moore; (6) Cornelius Luyster DEER, b. 25 Feb 1849; d. 5 Oct 1942; m. 11 Nov 1874 to Nancy Jane ELLIOTT, b. 23 Aug 1856; d. 12 Nov 1912; (7) Joseph S. DEER, b. 4 Aug 1851; (8) Abram Clore DEER, b. 19 Aug 1854; d. 17 Aug 1929; m. 30 Jun 1875 to Martha A. FORSYTH, b. 22 Sep 1856; d. 2 Nov 1912; (9) Sarah Elizabeth DEER, b. 10 Apr 1857; m. 11 Feb 1874 to Wesley HARRIS.

Alford DEER had the following siblings:

(1) Unknown; (2) Wesley DEER, b. 1 Apr 1804; d. 13 May 1881; m. Mercer Co., KY, to Mahala MYERS, b. 19 Feb 1812; d. 28 Nov 1892; (3) Malinda DEER, b. 31 Dec 1806; d. 7 Apr 1883; m. 1831 in Boyle Co., KY, to Michael GABBERT; (4) Elizabeth DEER, b. 11 May 1808; d. 13 May 1881; m. 1831 to James M. BYERS; (5) Allen DEER, b. 14 Feb 1810; d. 11 Oct 1885; (6) Alford DEER (see above); (7) Hiram DEER, b. 26 Apr 1813; d. 26 Feb 1898; m. 24 Dec 1835 in Mercer Co., KY, to 1st - Frances YAGER, b. 15 Dec 1816; d. 8 Nov. 1873; 2nd - Polly VANDIVER (1838, came to Johnson Co., IN); (8) Emily DEER, b. 22 Mar 1815; d. 6 Oct 1900; m. Mercer Co., KY, to Abraham ARMSTRONG, b. 30 May 1813; d. 7 Jul 1881; (9) Eliza Ann DEER, b. 16 Dec 1816; d. 9 May 1899; m. 10 Nov 1836 in Boyle Co., KY, to Joseph HENDERSON, b. 1 Sep 1815; d. 26 Jul 188?; (10) Henry DEER, b. 11 May 1819; d. 12 Dec 1885; m. 18 Jan 1842 in Boyle Co., KY, to Mrs. Cynthia Ann FISHER CHRISTOPHER, b. 30 Jan 1819; d. 5 Sep 1853.

Hope this helps. If only someone could tell me about the parents and siblings of my 2nd gr. grandfather, Abraham ARMSTRONG, and where he came from.
