Re: Calvin Deal, Bulloch Co, GA

In Reply to: Re: Calvin Deal, Bulloch Co, GA by Elizabeth Herrington of 1770

Hi - Calvin Deal is my GGG grandfather. Below is his family group sheet. I copied & pasted it from Word, so I hope it comes out ok in the post. This is from my "new & improved" database, so it includes sources.

Yes - Calvin served in the Confederate Army. Details are below.

I have not worked on my genealogy project in almost a year, so I am not as up to speed with my stuff as I should be. But if you would like more information on this Deal family, please email me at . I've been really poor about getting back to people lately (I'm sorry if you're reading this and I've "dissed" you!! Write me again and we can talk!), but I will try my best.

Also - I know that Wendy Beck, another Deal researcher, has photos of both Calvin and Sarah's gravestones. I'll see if I can find, in any of my stuff, where the Calvin Deal cemetery is located. But if you'd like to see photos of their headstones, go to the Virtual Cemetery at and search for Calvin Deal and Sarah Mikell. Wendy took these photos and I believe her email address can be found with these pictures.

I hope this helps. Please email me if you'd like. And if I don't get back to you - email me until I do. I need to be pestered. (I know that's a huge character flaw - but I'm being honest, so I hope that makes up for it!)

OH - I almost forgot. Wendy also sent me a copy of Calvin & Sarah's marriage certificate. It's awesome. If you'd like me to email you a copy, let me know. ALSO, I have copies of most of the sources that are listed below, so if you'd like copies let me know.
