William was born in 1758. He passed away in 1836. One source has his date of birth as 23 Jan 1758,[1] another as 28 Jan 1758.[2] Both concur on date of death.

One source indicates he is the son of Solomon Dains and Ruth Neff.[3]

He was a Revolutionary War soldier in a Connecticut regiment.[2]

He and wife Anne Chamberlain had the following children (comments from source[2] except for one in [brackets]):

Olson (or Alson) Dean, b. 04 Aug 1783
William Dean, b. 23 Mar 1785
Lurancy Dean, b. 1786 (may have died young - I believe her name was a derivation of Laurentia, several cousins of the following generations carried the name Laura) [this is evidently Lurancy Dean, who lived on to marry Ira Porter and pass away in 1861]
Orrin W. Dean, b.13 May 1788
Calvin Dean, b.1790 (mentioned in Onondaga accounts)
Alba (or Alby) Dean, b. 1793, m. Sally Morgan of VT (related to the Doolittle Family)
Sarah Dean, b. 1795
Marvin Dean, b. 1796
Gorden Dean, b. 1797
Rial Dean, b. 04 Jun 1802

Several of these children, regardless of age, were baptized in 1801 at the Congregational Church, Town of Paris, Oneida County, New York (evidently aka Paris Religious Society):

"William Origin Albagin Marvin and Gurdon the sons, Luraney Anne and Sarah the daughters of William DEAN and Anne his wife, Nov. 5, 1801."[4]

"DEAN, Anson and William Dean, sons of William Dean and Anne his wife, died from home with Typhus fever, May --, 1806."[5]
