Historical Southern Families. Volume XVII, Later Descendants of The Dees (Deas) Family:

Charles Dees #63, son of Richard Dees #13, appears in the Chesterfield Co Census of 1810 with a family consisting of himself and wife, b 1784-94, and 2 sons b. 1800-1810. He does not appear in the records yet found until the 1850 census of Tallahatchee Co. Miss., which show Charles Dees, b 1783 in South Carolina, living in the family of his probable son-in-law and daughter, Elijah C. and Eliza Carmichael, and Charles's probable wife, Easter Dees, b 1780 in South Carolina, living in the family of a younger son Charles Dees Jr. These Mississippi census records show that the family of Charles Dees lived across the border in North Carolina (probably Richmond or Anson County) for a number of years. There were seven families in the Charles Dees group living in Tallahatchee Co. Miss. in 1850: Bryant Dees, b 1803 in S.C., Milton Dees, b 1812 in S.C., Eliza Carmichael b 1816 in N.C. and Abe Dees b 1821 in N.C., being almost certainly son and daughters of Charles and Easter Dees. Griffin b 1824, Alex b 1825, and Charles Jr. b 1828 all in North Caolina, could have been sons of Bryant Dees above, or else younger sons of Charles and Easter Dees.

The families are as follows:

1. Griffin Dees, b 1824, Elizabeth Dees b 1827 both born in N. C. and son William N. Dees b 1849 in Mississippi. This family also had in it William Sullivant , b 1828 in Tenn.

2. Alex Dees b 1825 in North Carolina, Emily J. Dees b 1823 inAlabama and Elisha Green b 1836 in Tennessee.

3. Bryant Dees, b 1803 in South Carolina, wife Rebecca b 1825 in North Carolina, and all the children born in N.C. as follows: (1) Laura b 1829; (2)Martha b 1837; (3) Thomas b 1839; (4) Caroline b 1841; (5) Mary b 1842; (6) Charles b 1843; (7) Daniel b 1845.

4. Charlie Dees Jr. b 1828 in N.C., Easter Dees b 1780 in S.C. and Martha A.C, Dees, presumably Charles Jr.'s wife, b 1831 in N.C. It seems almost certain that Charles Dees Jr. was the youngest son of Charles and Easter Dees, as Bryant Dees above had a son Charles F. Dees, b 1843.

5. Abe Dees, b 1821 in N.C,, Margaret Dees b 1830 in Tenn., and Children Mary J.N. Dees b 1845 and Louisiana Dees b 1847 in Mississippi; also in the family were Thomas J. Dixon, b 1847 in Tenn, and Joshua Cissom b 1835 in Alabama.

6. Milton Dees, b 1812 inS.C., wife Mary b 1810 in S.C. and children; Harriet b 1835, Isabella b 1838, Martha b 1841, Culpeper b 1842, Alfred b 1845, Sarah b 1845 (all these children born S.C.) and Mary C. Dees b 1848 in Mississippi.

7. Elijah C Carmichael, b 1816, wife Eliza Carmichael, b 1816, both born in N.C. and Charles Dees b 1783 in South Carolina.
