Deal Michael:

I find your query interesting. According to family lore, one Jacob Deal had a mill at Deals Gap, N.C. This Jacob Deal is my Gr Gr Grandfather. I have not been able to prove this though. But, he and his father (William) went to Elijay(Northern Georgia), Ga. probably along with other siblings of Jacob. My great grandfather (John Wm.) was born in Elijay and my grandfather (Benjamin Jacob "Ben" was born in Spring Place, Georgia. This is where the home of John Ross and the Capital of the Cherokee Indian Tribe is located. This is what is so interesting. Seems like there must be some connection, but as yet I have not been able to find anything.

Sincerely,

Rebecca Deal Van Cleve
