I am looking for William Edward Deer. I know that he lived in Brosville, Virginia, which is in Pittsylvania county. He married Mary Wilson on Dec. 4, 1883. She was 21 years old, so she would have been born in 1862. It is probable that he was born around the same time. He and Mary had 9 daughters. His daughters all had the last name of Deering. We don't really know why the name was changed. I was told that he was probably of Indian descent, but he may be related to the Deers from Germany. Do you have information on William.
