There was a Gilbert White Dean born 26 Jul 1875 in the U.S. He registered for the draft in WWI at Menominee Co., MI.

There was also a Gilbert W. Dean who was married to Mitilda Nance and had a child, Gilbert Mckinley Dean who died at 1 yr old at Stepenson, Menominee, MI.

They are probably the same person, but you would know best.

You can simply go to

(free searches, free save the documents, free print the documents)

and put the names/locations/dates in the free search tool  and find more on these family members.   When you enter a person it comes up with a list of matches,  click on the name on the left hand side and the record comes up in more detail.   If the box on the left on that page says 'view image' - you can click on that and see the actual record - census, marriage cert etc.  Not all of them have images.

Happy Hunting!
