Hi Carl, This law suite is Case No 1-B-146, Perrin, R.B. vs Nepthalin Deem, et al 1860. I'll just cite proportions of this suite. Adam Deem, Sen. died in 1856 and had a tract of 252 acres of land described in the Patent from the Commonwealth to him, filed as an Exhibit withthe Bill, and said Adam Deem, Sr. had eleven children, Six of whom have conveyed heir interest in said land to Complainant as appears from the Deed filed as Exhibit (A) with the Bill - to wit " (Children) 1. Mary Foutty widow of William Foutty, Dec'd, 2. Catherine Foutty widow of John Foutty, dec'd, 3. John Deem, 4. Hannah who married her cousin Adam 2nd, 5. Philip Deem, 6. Jacob Deem, 7. David Deem, 8, Adam Deem, Jr., 9. Isaac G. Deem, 10. James Deem, 11. Margaret who married John C. Leazier. Isaac Deem died intestate leaving nine children as follows: 1. Margaret, 2. Elizabeth m Richard W. Dotson, 3. Abraham E. Deem who lives in Wood County, 4. Calvin N. Deem lives in Ohio, 5. Mary C. m David Roberts lives in Wirt Co..6. Commodore, 7. John, 8. Jeremiah (the last three infants who live in Wirt County, 9. Madison who has died since his father. James died leaving sixteen children as follows: 1. Kere,iah, 2. Rachel m William O'Dell, 3. Matilda m D/ N. Goodno, 4. Armanilla m. Washington Clark, 5. Zacharija, 6. Francis, 7. Rebecca, 8. James, 9. Angeline m Edward Leazier, all of whom resides in the state of Ohio, 10. Nancy m Isaac Thornton who resides out of the Commonwealth and 11. Jefferson resides in Indiana, 12. Nepthalem, 13. Hannah m. isaac Nelson, 14. Lucetta m. H. D. Nutter lives in Wirt County, 15. Sarah m Jesse Lee and resides in Ritchie County, 16, Catherine m B. Mounts resides in Wood Co, Margeret & John C. Leazier who both died leaving eight children as follows: 1. Isaac, 2. Edward, 3. Owen, 4. Margaret, 5. Artamecia, 6. Caroline, 7. Nancy m George Soders, 8. Lovina m Thomas Parker all of whom reside in the state of Indiana and theRespt. say that the said David Deem, son of Adam Deem, Sr. moved to Missouri and is not dead and the said Adam Deem, Jr. resides in Illinois. The suite goes on with the description and improvements and question aboutthe oil wells on the property. This is signed H. M. Lowther and Margaret Lowther. Wirt County Court: The written named H. M. Lowther this day made oath before the unsigned, clerk of the Circuit Court of said County of Wirt that the Matter set forth in the written answer are true as he bleieves. Given under my hand this 4th day of Sept. 1860. teste J. M. Hoff, Clerk. A. J. Boreman, Atty forRespts. Hope this helps to clear up the version of the kids as Minnie Kendall Lowther printed in the History of Ritchie County. Miss Lowther was in a wheelchair and did most of her work at home. She has some good information but we have to prove the children of Adam Deem, Sr. and I believe this court document to be proof of that. If you would like a copy of this, please let me know and I will forward it on to you. Thanks, mab P. S. Adam Deem, II does not belong in Jacob's family and I question that he might belong to Lewis Deem. Just a suggestion. mab
