"Joseph Dean was born in April 1779 in Maryland on the Potomac River and died in 1871 on his plantation "Cuffawa," southeast of Chulahoma, Marshall County, MS. His house was a two-story log house west of the cemetery."
"Joseph Dean moved from SC to Lincoln County, TN. ca 1813. According to 'First County Court Minutes of Lincoln Co., TN, 1810- 1819' by Marsh, Joseph was permitted to keep a tavern at his own house on the road to Huntsville, Alabama, for 12 months from this date and entered into bond with Burrell Lee and Thomas Whitford, 2 May 1814. The main old Huntsville or Meridianville road left by Camp Blount.....on south to Todds where John Todd was postmaster in 1833. It was once known as Dean's and was a stage stop on the Nashville-Huntsville Stage Route. He was frequently mentioned in Lincoln County, TN court record (serving on juries, supervising roads, etc.) About 1837 Joseph Dean moved to Marshall County, MS. He was age 71 in the 1850 census. "
