I believe, but have been unable to prove, that i am related to Joshua Deel. The Deel (Deal) family intermarried with the Gibson family on several occasions. It is also rumored that the Gibson family that i am related to is of indian descent, but that is another issue i have been unable to prove. My ancestor is Matilda Gibson, born in Kentucky. She is the daughter of Martin Gibson, she was born about 1822. When the Deal family moved to central WV from Virginia/Kentucky some of the Gibson family moved there also, and the researcher for that family also has family legends that the Gibsons were of indian descent.
