Dean Cemetery (DeSoto County) A Virtual Cemetery created by: Laura S.
Description: The majority of the people resting here are direct descendants of Hardy and Cynthia (Pitts) Dean who are also buried in the cemetery. James Greer McGowen married Mary Ellen (AKA Cynthia) Dean. However, most or all of the McGowen children buried here are the offspring of James' younger brother John H. McGowen II. Susie Richmond is probably 'Susan Dean' who shares a birth year. Rutilius Prewit may have been the son of the previous property owners, as the Deans purchased the farm in the 1850s.
