History and Genealogy 

Deer Head Cove is located in the extreme northeast corner of DeKalb Co Alabama about four miles from the Alabama, Georgia state line. A steep, winding dirt road snakes down  Sand Mountain to a cove cradled by the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.  This is rugged terrain, and one of the first places the to be seen by the new settlers searching for farm land.  They came from Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Kentucky, and Tennessee.  They came from as far away as New York and Pennsylvania.  Their families where from the Tidewaters of Virginia and Maryland, and the Ohio Valley.   One of the first congregation was a group that organized and called themselves the Mt. Paran Primitive Baptist Church of Christ.  The church was organized before June of 1851.
