Everyone in Bulloch County knows a Deal or two and almost everyone knows what an important part the Deal family has played in the founding and development of Statesboro and Bulloch County. Well, their family lines extend all the way back to a little village in Bavaria, Germany. Johann Adam Diehl was born in Einod, Rhineland Pfalz, in Bavaria and married Anna.
