The following was handed down from my mother about an uncle of her's that had left Avery County North Carolina and gone to Wythe County Virginia for work. All she knew was that her uncle George Washington Dean worked as miner. He was reported as being shot in a card game and died of this action. A cousin of here's Emmit Foster had gone to the funeral from North Carolina. From the small amount of information that I have been able to gather there is a number of Dean's that I have found reported on the census records for Wythe County, the lead mines township or community. The time would have been after 1920. I would be most appreciative of any information on this account. I thank anyone that might be able to help me. The Dan Dean listed as a new breed of farmer gave me encouragement. Kenneth White email [email protected]
