Family Record of R.H. Dean

Pocket Diary of R.H. Dean  1891

Robert H. Dean, born 2 May 1859 Crittenden County, Kentucky, was the son of Joseph Madison "Matt" Dean and Isabel Caroline Clement. The home of Joseph M. and Isabel C. Dean was known as Deanwood and was located in the Iron Hill section of Crittenden County. Robert H. Dean married Mary Willis Crawford, daughter of Dr. J.W. Crawford, 5 March 1884. To them were born Dixie, who died at the age of five months in 1887, and Addie Lee, born 13 January 1890. Robert H. Dean taught school at Weston, Smithland, Lone cherry and Olive Branch and was employed at chapel Hill School when he received an appointment in the Weather Bureau.  The family later lived in Washington, DC; LaCrosse, Wisconsin; St. Louis, Missouri; Lexington, Kentucky and Anniston, Alabama. [1]  Robert H. Dean died November 1942 in Gadsden, Alabama and was buried in Mapleview Cemetery, Crittenden County.[2]

During 1891, R.H. Dean recorded his thoughts, events and interests in plants and the weather in a little notebook or diary. Included in the front of the notebook are the names of family members and dates. Written on the front is the following: "R.H. Dean  Marion, Ky.  Apr - Aug 1891  Memorandum." Most entries are in pencil and are difficult to read.  The entire notebook was published in my Western Kentucky Journal Vol. IX, No. 3 (Summer 2002), p. 2.

The notebook has been donated to the Crittenden County Museum in Marion.
