Mary J...I also tried to email and it didn't work.
Phillip H. Deer was my ggrandfather. My grandmother was Juston Deer. I have a booklet written by my great aunt, Lela Mae Deer, in 1967, documenting her family memories. This is some of what I have:

4. Byron Condron Deer b. Cumberland, OK Mar 5, 1907
+ Esther Marie Carneal m. Jun 9, 1938 Fredericksburg, VA

I also have descendants of some of these siblings - to some degree. If you are interested, I will get it all in better form and send to you. At the time of the writing of the booklet, Lela Mae (known, for some reason, as "Aunt Hick") , her sister, Lona, and brothers, Byron and Elam were still living. I have no additional information on their longevity, but I have just begun this fascinating hobby called genealogy.
