Re: Deere - as in tractor

My mother was a Deere, maybe related to the tractor maker. She was born in Ireland and that name-spelling is originally Irish. So maybe there is a connection, with someone in you branch not able to spell the name and on emigration that spelling was given to them.
Who knows?
