John Dean aged 41 buried 10 April 1876, entry no. 1479 may be one and same as the collier and there are lots of Dean's if you need any of them, if this helps any?

Fanny Dean (spinster) married George Hall (bachellor and collier) by banns on 4 Feb 1854 entry no.21,  St. Thomas, Kidsgrove - both were aged 20.

Parents were George Hall (labourer) and John Dean (collier)
Witnesses were Joseph Lees and Rebecca Lees

Therefore it looks like George Hall (collier) died between 1854-1860.
It doesnt look look like he's buried via St. Thomas' Kidsgrove.

Joseph and Rebecca Lees also witnesses another marriage.

Entry No.139 St.Thomas' Kidsgrove
Date 25 Dec 1859
Groom Obadiah Dean (bachelor/collier/full age/Kidsgrove)
Bride Harriet Steele (spinster/full age/Kidsgrove)

Parents names
John Dean (collier) and Joshua Steele (weaver)

Therefore this adds info that John Dean is the father of Obadiah Dean and Fanny Dean.

Many thanks Gareth in providing the info on who George Whitfield married.It appears I was correct in posing the choice Hall or dean.

Entry No. 1039 St Thomas, Kidsgrove shows Harriet Dean, aged 43, (presumably the wife of Obadiah Dean), was buried 5 Aug 1870 and at entry no. 1059 there is an infant Obadiah Dean buried 25 Nov 1870 aged 4 months.

One would assume that Harriet died after childbirth and sadly her son died 4 months later?
