In Search Of Post a note



A William Deins, also known as William Deane was in business as a foreman at the Sturbridge Graphite Mine.  The Bay Path describes the settlement of this region and the documentation from the original land transactions of Sachem Squanto to John Winthrop. I recently met online a descendant of  a William Deins/Deane, whose permission I obtained to post his branch of his family tree. Personal information for living persons has been omitted for privacy. I believe these are relatives of the Sturbridge Lead Mine William Deane See: Deins William, so I posted it in case you may recognize your family tree. The following family tree I believe represents the lineage of  the Taunton Deanes.  See the following hyperlink for a detailed article about the Deane family of Taunton and their descendants Deane Family,M1
