This deed refers to a survey
done for John Dekle in 1801, but I have not been able to find any written records of that
survey. Also notice that the deed is from John L.B. Dekle to Orin G. Horn and was
witnessed by John L. Dekle. Since John L. Dekle, son of George Dekle, was born in 1798 he
would not have had a survey done when he was only three years old. He would have been 23
years old when this deed was written. Therefore, I assume that the John L.B. Dekle in this
document was the immigrant. What the B. stands for is unknown to me at this time. I cannot
find it mentioned in any of the family histories.
If you have any ideas along
this line, please e-mail me.
